#OnStage2019 Las Vegas Highlights

Greetings my stamping friends! I did not have sufficient time (or energy) to fully share with you all the exciting moments from my attendance at #OnStage2019 in Las Vegas last weekend.

Today I am going to share with you the four Make & Takes we had the pleasure of making as well as the new suites of products from the upcoming Mini Catalog that were used in these projects (Mini Catalog is scheduled for release on January 3, 2020).


The above project #1 used products from the Parisian Blossoms Suite:


The above project #2 used the Timeless Tulips stamp set and punch bundle:


The above project #3 (3″ x 3″ note cards) used the Best Dressed Suite:


The above project #4 used the Peaceful Poppies Suite:

As you can guess, there are a lot of new flower themed products in the upcoming Mini Catalog, plus there is so much more that I wish I could share with you. But we need to wait a little longer. In the meantime, there are many more fantastic products in the Holiday and Annual Catalogs to choose from for your project needs!

I will be sharing more with you in the days to come so stay tuned.

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 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.


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.
