Color experts may say that neither Honeysuckle nor Tangerine Tango are jewel tones, but they are pretty darn close, IMO. Jewel tones are back, and I would not be surprised if Stampin' Up! re-releases some of its retired colors under new names and/or in slightly different shades and tones.
If jewel tones are back, can metallics be far behind?
Do you think SU!'s demos and customers would revolt if they did that?
I will say that most of the SU colors that I like/have purchase could be considered jewel tones. I generally prefer Pumpkin Pie to Tangerine Tango, but I may revisit that. I need to make a SU order now that I think about it.
