Color Renovation

Hi stampers!  I just got back from the SU Regional in Milwaukee.  What an awesome day!  I made 5 projects using Vintage Vogue (so handy for my upcoming workshop), and I got lots of great ideas.
Everyone there was abuzz about the color renovation that SU announced last week.  They are changing from the color families plus neutrals to four color collections: Brights, Neutrals, Regals and Subtles.  Quite a few colors are retiring, and some old favorite In Colors are returning!  I am so excited about this, and I won't miss too many of the retiring colors.  I'm thrilled to welcome back Baja Breeze, Pacific Point and Wild Wasabi (sorry, no Kiwi Kiss).  There will be 10 colors in each of the collections for a total of 40 core colors.  In Colors will still be around, but there will be 5 new In Colors each year, and each set of colors will stay for 2 years.  That excites me too!
I got to see the new color collections in person in Milwaukee.  Would you like to see them too?  Well, OK, I guess I can share...

This is the Regals collection: Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Elegant Eggplant, Night of Navy, Not Quite Navy, Garden Green, More Mustard, Cajun Craze (new), Cherry Cobbler (new).  Not pictured: Always Artichoke.

This is the Subtles collection: Baja Breeze, Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum, Marina Mist (new).  Not pictured: Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery.

Here is the Brights collection: Regal Rose, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight (new), Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red.

Here is the Neutrals collection: Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, River Rock, Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake (previously Kraft), Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Basic Black, Basic Gray, Early Espresso (new).
SU will be offering packages of markers, spots, pastels and watercolor crayons in the new colors as well as the returning colors (except markers in this year's In Colors).  I'll have samples of the 5 new colors soon, and I'll post photos with color comparisons.
What do you think of the new collections?
Happy stamping!
