News From SU

A note from Stampin Up: Due to quality issues, the Peppermint Sticks Scented Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 127830) from the holiday catalog will no longer be available for purchase. The product will still emboss, and you and your customers can continue using any powders you may have purchased; however, we have learned that the peppermint scent does not last as long as is indicated in the catalog. Since our supplier will not be able to reformulate the powder in time for your use during the holidays, we have made the difficult decision to stop selling the item.

Strength and Hope

One of the many reasons that I love stampin' up! is the charity they do. this stamp set is retired but is called strength and hope. stampin up gave $2 back to breast cancer research for every stamp sold. My mom didn't die from that but from pancreatic cancer. cancer is cancer and I thought making this card was apporiate because I will be doing relay for life on august 11th.
the colors used was concord crush, tangerine tango, and daffodil delight i used the color coach to put the colors together and the new piercing tool for the outlining of the scallop circle.

Two Incorrect Items on Retiring List



Craft Scissors 108360 and Paper Snips 103579 are NOT retiring and the list now should show that reflection.

Update: Summer Smooch Brads

When Stampin' Up! says something is selling fast they are not kidding! These brads are no longer available. But if you need help with any other orders or questions I can answer please feel free to contact me. Thank you!

Such pretty fabric brads but NO  longer available 

Retiring Accessories and Decor Elements


Retiring Accessories and Décor Elements
April 25, 2012

Get them before they are gone! The retired accessories and Definitely Decorative (including Décor Elements) lists are now available and won't stay around for long--these items are only available while supplies last!

When you look at the retired accessories list, you'll note that all of our Stampin' Pads are listed. This is for two reasons: (1) Craft Stampin' Pads will now only be available in black and white; and (2) we are introducing a new Firm Foam pad in our Classic Stampin' Pads with the 2012-2013 annual catalog.

The Firm Foam pads offer better ink coverage and, in turn, better stamped images! Who wouldn't want that? That's so cool!

In addition, please note the following about the new catalog:

Only select Stampin' Write Markers will be available individually (Stampin' Write Markers in color collections will continue to be offered)
12" x 12" Textured Card Stock will no longer be offered
12" x 12" Smooth Card Stock will only be available in select individual colors and color collections

Summer Smooch Brads

Our Summer Smooches Designer Fabric Brads (item 125589) are selling much better than we anticipated! As previously announced, this specialty item is only available during the Summer Smooches promotion (ending April 30) and will not appear in the upcoming 2012-2013 catalog. Since our supply is limited and we are near the end of the promotion, this item is available only while supplies last. I will notify you with a current update if we completely run out of product before the end of the promotion. Thank you!


Firm Foam Pads!

I got this information from Stampin' Up! itself
Introducing. firm foam pads! They change your stamping experience for the better.

We know you're going to love these new Stampin' Pads-just look at all the exciting benefits listed below:

Provide better ink coverage for your stamps!
Light-tap stamping produces flawless images!
Pad stays juicier for longer resulting in better ink pad longevity!

In addition, our new Stampin' Pads

Have a crisply printed, glossy label on the top of the pad that is easier to read and that will not fade or chip off!
Come with color name labels in all four languages (English, Spanish, French, and German)-just choose your language, peel it off the back, and add it to the side of the pad for easy identification!
Use the same patented flip-top case design that stores the inking surface upside down, so the pad surface stays moist!
Are available in all colors, including our exclusive In Colors!


Please note: Five ink colors have undergone formula changes to improve functionality and color stability with the new firm foam pads. These colors are

Basic Black
Basic Gray
Marina Mist
Perfect Plum
Tempting Turquoise

All five colors of the reformulated inks have been fully tested and approved. While using the new ink formula in the old Stampin' Pads is fine, we do not recommend using the old ink formula in the new firm foam pads. Any refills purchased after April 30, 2012, will contain the new formulated ink.*


* The new ink formula for Basic Gray, Perfect Plum, and Tempting Turquoise (for both Stampin' Ink Refills and firm foam Classic Stampin' Pads) will not be available until June 1. In addition, the Neutrals, Subtles, and Brights ink color collections will not contain the newly formulated ink for Basic Gray, Perfect Plum, and Tempting Turquoise until June 1
Here is a link to the retiring lists that Stampin' Up has put out!
