Holiday Catalog & Annual Catalog Product Updates

Greetings my stamping friends. I wanted to give you an update on some products from the 2019 Holiday Catalog And the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. Due to their popularity, many products from the Holiday Catalog are available while supplies last.

Delicata® Ink Pads Available While Supplies Last

We have received shipments of Delicata ink pads and they will be available to purchase before the end for the 2019 holiday catalog sales period (January 2, 2020).

  • Golden Glitz Ink Pad (item 150711)
  • Silvery Shimmer Ink Pad (item 150709)

*North America only: Our Celestial Copper Glitz Ink Pad, Celestial Copper Ink Refill, Golden Glitz Ink Refill and Silvery Shimmer Ink Refill inventory has already been depleted and has been turned off.

Due to amount of time it takes to receive shipments of these items, they will not be carrying over into the 2020 occasions catalog. Additionally, when inventory for each item is depleted, that item will be turned off.

Moose Punch No Longer Available

Our inventory of Moose Punch (item 150652) has been depleted and is no longer available for purchase.

Backordered

The following products are in back order status. You can still order these products, but we don’t have any in stock right now. Thankfully, it will be here on or even before the date listed. Just keep in mind that the date could change as we get updates on its delivery. Once we get more, we’ll ship it to you right away—separate from your original order (and with no additional shipping charges!).

Low Inventory

These products are so popular, we’re running out. That means they could be moved to the Backordered, Not Orderable, Retired, or Discontinued list soon—better stock up!

If you have any questions about the status of these products, please ask me! I don’t want you to be disappointed when you cannot buy the products you want before they are gone for good (like me – I should have ordered that Moose Punch last week!), so if any of these products are on your wish list, submit your order NOW!

Thank you for stopping by today. Until next time, stamp on my friends.

Purple Posy Ink To Be Discontinued

Greetings my stamping friends. Here is a product update for your information:

Despite Stampin’ Up!’s best efforts to resolve issues with Purple Posy ink, they have learned that the ink color is still shifting over time. This means that the color is coordinating more loosely than typically allowed with their colors. Due to these ongoing challenges, Stampin’ Up! has decided to discontinue Purple Posy classic ink. As of November 5, 2019, the following items will no longer be available to purchase:

  • Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 150084)
  • Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill (item 150091)
  • 2019–2021 In Color Classic Stampin’ Pad Assortment (item 150087)

Stampin’ Up! will be unable to replace Purple Posy ink pads for customers or demonstrators who have already received them. However, anyone with concerns regarding the color shifting properties of their Purple Posy ink pads may contact Demonstrator Support and will be offered a $7.50 usd coupon code as compensation. The coupon codes will expire on January 1, 2020.

The three item numbers listed above may still appear in the 2020–2021 annual catalog, but will not be available to purchase after November 5, 2019. All other Purple Posy products (such as Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker, Purple Posy Cardstock, Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends, etc.) will remain available for purchase.

The testing process explained:

All of Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive ink colors are run through a vigorous series of tests to get ahead of challenges like this, and to ensure colors are accurate and meet our standards of coordination. Purple Posy did pass regular testing standards in time-simulating ovens, but we have now identified that it fell short when it came to actual time passing. The color begins to shift once the ink has rested in the ink pad for about six weeks. 

It is rare for Stampin’ Up! or our ink manufacturer to have such persistent issues with ink; Purple Posy has certainly been an anomaly. We completed full testing on 11 distinct batches of Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Ink before releasing the current version. We are now confident that no additional efforts would uphold our coordination needs over time. We appreciate your patience as we have worked through this manufacturing difficulty and regret that we are unable to share better news.

We understand how frustrating incidents like this can be. We continue to be committed to offering color coordination across all our product lines.

If you have any questions not discussed here, do not hesitate to contact me.

Of course you can continue to use your Purple Posy inks. Just keep in mind that over time the color will change.

Thank you for stopping by today. Until next time, stamp on my friends.

Holiday Retreat Projects – Post 3 & OnStage Swap Sneak Peek

Greetings my stamping friends! Today I am going to share with you three card projects from Amy Storrie’s Holiday Retreat, Stamped with Joy. Each card is very different in design, but they all have the theme of a wintery Christmas.

I have provided the product thumbnails after each project which contain those marvelous hyperlinks which will allow you to quickly add what you need to your shopping cart.

I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I did making them.

Unfortunately I have not yet purchased any of these stamp set / bundles and my Wish List continues to grow in size!

OnStage Swap Sneak Peek

The much anticipated all demonstrator event – OnStage – is quickly approaching. Since this year’s multi-day event is being held in Messe Dortmund, Dortmund, Germany, one day Local events are being held at select locations in the U.S. and Canada. I am attending the event in Las Vegas, NV which I know will be LOTS of FUN!

I signed up to participate in a group organized swap and the theme for my card could be Birthday, Thank You or Valentines. I opted to do a Thank You card and I used a stamp set / bundle that I have not yet used from the Annual Catalog.

I have to say that I surprised myself with the simplicity of the card using this multi-step stamp set. The leaves and the bottom two flowers are attached flat to the card front, while the third flower (top) was attached using dimensionals.

Product List

If you have any questions regarding any measurements or other design elements of these cards, you just need to ask. I provide my projects to you for FREE.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.

Holiday Retreat Projects – Post 2

Greetings my stamping friends! I am long overdue for sharing projects with you from Amy Storrie’s Holiday Retreat. There are never enough hours in the day to accomplish everything I need and want to do these days – and holy cow, it is almost Thanksgiving already!

I am sharing with you today three cards that were designed by Amy – one for our team group meeting in September and two from the Holiday Retreat. These are being shared together because they all use products from the Wrapped in Plaid Suite.

For your ease and convenience, I have included the Product List for each project separately which have those “oh so handy” hyperlink thumbnails so you can add these products to your shopping cart.

As is usually the case once I have seen a stamp set or bundle in use, I now must have that moose stamp set and coordinating punch. How cute is that moose!?! (The struggle not to buy everything in the Holiday Catalog is real y’all!)

If you have any questions regarding the measurements, techniques, or any other design element of the above projects, you know you just need to ask. I happily provide my project instructions for FREE!

Christmastime Is Here Suite

And just when I thought I had my Wish List under control, Stampin’ Up! is releasing another incredible product suite, which is available only while supplies last starting on November 1, 2019.

I hope you’re ready to make this holiday season magical, because the Christmastime Is Here Suite is, well . . . here! This exclusive, limited-time collection of festive, floral coordinating products has everything you need to share love, joy, and creativity this holiday season.

Products from the Christmastime Is Here Suite will be available while supplies last only. The clock is ticking so place your order(s) as quickly as possible.

Below are the hyperlink product thumbnails for each product individually, the stamp set and dies bundle, or the entire Suite Bundle if you must have it all (again, the struggle is real!).

Holiday Retreat – Oh So Sweet

Greetings my stamping friends! I had a fabulous weekend spending time with fellow Stampin’ Up! fans at Amy Storrie’s Stamped with Joy Holiday Retreat. Starting on Friday night and almost all day on Saturday I crafted with 27 other lovely ladies and made 12 holiday cards and six (6) 3D projects. It was exhausting AND exhilarating all at the same time!

Amy works so very hard organizing these events and she is an amazing Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and most gracious host! THANK YOU, AMY!

I will be sharing with you over the next few weeks the cards and projects she designed for us so be sure to keep an eye out for my posts. If you are not subscribed to receive notifications of my blog posts, be sure to do so now as I would hate for you to miss these great designs.

As for today’s post share, I am going to show you the all attendee thank you gifts that Amy made for us. – oh, and we also got a shopping bag and coffee mug with the Stamped with Joy Holiday Retreat 2019 logo!

Tiny Cranberry Sprite can with a Ghirardelli Peppermint Candy
Contains a hand sanitizer bottle
Contains flavored lip balm
Contained my door prize – a pack of Gold Enamel Dots!

Based on these gifts, just imagine how spectacular the projects are that I will be sharing with you in future posts!

Thank you for stopping by today. Until next time, stamp on my friends!

Gather Together with Tidings All Around

Greetings my stamping friends! I have a new project to share with you today using two stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog — Gather Together and Tidings All Around. The Gather Together set is obviously meant to create projects of Thanksgiving. Many of you may think that the Tidings All Around set would just be for creating Christmas projects. However, I think my project will show you how both stamp sets compliment each other in my Fall themed / Thanksgiving card.

I guess I’ll let you be the judge! What do you think?

Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in the design of this card, all of which can be added to your shopping cart by clicking on the thumbnails below:

If you have any questions regarding any of the design elements of this project, do not hesitate to ask.

A Spooktacular Monster Bash Halloween

Greetings my stamping friends. October is here bringing with it some slightly cooler weather which makes me yearn for all things Fall (although I have to admit I am NOT a big fan of Pumpkin Spice in everything).

Cooler weather means Halloween is just around the corner and I have seen so many houses all decked out in spooky decorations. The imagination of some of my neighbors is truly “Spooktacular”.

Speaking of things “Spooktacular”, have you noticed the adorable stamp sets, dies, punches and product suites available in the new Holiday Catalog?

At our team meeting with Amy Storrie in September, she used the Monster Bash Suite for our projects which of course means I NEED these products now! Here are the projects she designed for us:

Later than same day Amy hosted a “Stampin’ Bingo” event and had a project that used the new curvy box die and she gave us all a gift for attending her event made with the Coffin Treat Boxes:

How many of you NEED these products too?!? They are so darn cute. Bonus project note: the box with the bats tag contains a sweet pastry treat inside – a win win!

Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that were used to make these projects with a thumbnail for each which if clicked will offer you the option to add them to your shopping cart.

Product List

Whew! That is a very long list of supplies. If you have any questions as to which supplies were used for a specific project above, let me know. I attempted to list them in the order of the photos, but I did not duplicate supplies used on multiple projects. Also, if you have any questions about paper sizes, etc., I provide this information to you for FREE. You just need to ask for it!

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. If you have a “Spooktacular” project you have been working on, I would love to see it.

Until next time, stamp on my friends.
