Save the Last Stamp for Me

We have turned the corner into the last stretch of the Stampin’ Up! year and as we near the finish line, it’s time to announce the retirement of some of our beloved products.

There are a few facts to note:

  • We will not be offering Wood Mount stamp sets in the new catalog, so there may be a few stamps on the list that WILL be offered in our new (super sticky) CLING MOUNT offering in the next catalog. There may be a chance that if you order a wood mount set and it is sold out, it could be substituted with the Cling version (lucky you! You’d be the first!).
  • While there is not a die cutting tool in the 2019-2020 catalog, there WILL be new dies and embossing folders…please be patient as we improve your die cutting experience and stay tuned!
  • Due to difficulties with the manufacturer of our Stampin’ Trimmer, it has been discontinued from our current offering and Stampin’ Up! is working to create another excellent paper cutting option as soon as possible. You may order replacement cutting blades as long as they are available (limit 6 packages per order). They are currently refilling what they hope to be a 6 month supply.

ON TO THE FUN STUFF! I’m sharing a few of my favorite stamps and accessories on the retired lists today so you have the chance to add them to your collection before they are gone forever!

From the 2018-19 Annual Catalog, I’m really going to miss my Lemon Zest stamp set and coordinating Lemon Builder punch! I’m not sure who made this card I received in a card swap, but isn’t it so cheerful?! It’s been a favorite for getting my “creative juices” flowing.

I’m also sad to say goodbye to the Amazing Life Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalog: I’ve showcased it in a previous post, and have enjoyed the versatility it offers.

Retirement: You’ve been good, but now you’re gone…

A bittersweet day at Stampin’ Up! when the Retirement List is posted: Parting is sweet sorrow for many of my favs (So long, dear stamps…for some, I never used thee!) but the anticipation to fill my shelves with NEW products cheers my heart. I will warn you as you look at the following lists: Everything is available while supplies last (some are already gone!!), so grab your highlighter and mark the ones you must have and ORDER them ASAP!

Here is an appropriate and elegant card I made at a Shoebox Swap during Convention (designed by demonstrator Sharon Fisher?) that showcases a few of the *soon-to-be-retired products:

Card Recipe:

  • Stamps: *Build a Blossom and *Word Play stamp sets
  • Ink: Basic Black and Versamark
  • Paper: Very Vanilla & Basic Black card stock, First Edition Specialty DSP (121878)
  • Accessories: *Blossom Petals punch (121808), Scallop Trim Border Punch (118402), Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder (120175), Big Shot (113439), Heat Tool (129053), Black embossing powder (109133), Dazzling Details glitter (124177),  2-Way Glue Pen (100426) and Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)

*Soon-to-be-retired products

Helpful Hints for creating a card like this:
1. Ink one side of the embossing folder with Versamark and place DSP inside and run through Big Shot to emboss design. Immediately sprinkle the wet (Versamark) side of the DSP with black embossing powder, shake off excess and heat to set.

2. After stamping, punching and assembling flower, “paint” on petals with 2-Way glue pen and sprinkle on Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Shake off excess.
