Retiring Products Announced

Hurry Stamping Friends,

Grab your wish list and see if any of the products you have wanted are being discontinued.  There are a few things we know for sure:

  • All the products associated with the 2018-2019 In Colors are being retired.  Check out my previous post here. 
  • The Big Shot and accessories as well as the Stampin’ Trimmer are being retired.  Check out my previous post here. 
  • All the bundles will be retired.  The individual products may carryover to the new catalog but there will not be a 10% discount.
  • The Designer Series Papers will be retired.
  • All clear mount and wood mount stamps – except the large background wood stamps- are being retired.

The lists make it look like every single stamp set is being discontinued but this is not the case.  The clear mount is transitioning to cling mount.

This is a list of stamps that will carryover to the new catalog in the new cling mount:

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The first announcement of retiring products!

Hello Stamping Friends,

Stampin’ Up! is moving to a stronger position in the market.  They are eliminating the middle man for their die cutting and embossing machine and going direct to the manufacturer!  Accordingly the “Big Shot”, as we know it, will be retired along with all its accessories. 

I am listing everything that is “Big Shot” though it is an assumption at this point based on the announcement today that just said the machine and accessories.

The Stampin’ Trimmer is also being retired.

     

Currently we are allowed to buy three sets of blades for the trimmer.  When the retirement list comes out on Monday, April 15th, we will be able to buy six sets until they are depleted.  As always, they will be available as long as supplies last.  I recommend stocking up on the blades and the Big Shot cutting pads.  Stampin’ Up! is still working with the manufacturer so the new catalog will not have a die cutting and embossing machine.  Until the new one becomes available we need to get supplies for what we have.  Change is hard but it will be worth it!  The Stamparatus is a cut above the competition and I am sure the new SU die cutting and embossing machine will be the same.

The ‘In Color’ inks, refills and paper will be the first to sell out so be sure you have the stock you want to carry forward.

I will post the retired list Monday so be watching!

The current hostess code is KTHPFHPP.  Order $75 using this hostess code and receive a set of Gingham Daisy cards similar to these designed by Janice Laroche!

 

As always,

SAL,  Stamp A Lot with the Stampalosopher

Awesomely Artistic Eclipse Card & Discounted Retiring Items

Hello Stamping Friends,

We have discounts on some of the retiring items!  Click here for a pdf file of all the discounted products- some are 50% off!

I chose two of my retiring favorites to make an Eclipse card – the stamp set “Awesomely Artistic”, page 153 in the Annual Catalog, and the color Island Indigo.  In my usual monochromatic style I did cards for Mother’s Day, thank you cards and friend cards.  Her are various fronts and insides of the cards -the inside could just as easily be the outside of a card.

The Glitter Enamel Dots, #144200, matched the Island Indigo perfectly and added sparkle.  (There will be Glitter Enamel Dots in the new catalog but with different colors.)  The dragonfly is colored with the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, #141897, and the flower centers are a drop of glue from our Fine-Tip Glue Pen, #138309, with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter, #133751, sprinkled on top.  The For You greeting comes from the retiring stamp set “So Many Shells”, page 38 of the Annual Catalog.

Instead of Glitter Dots you could be a bit eclectic and use the stamp from the “Awesomely Artistic” set that has dots.  The greeting, “From Across The Miles”,  is a stamp in the retiring “Holly Berry Happiness” Christmas set, page 118.  I used a sticky note to cover up the Christmas Wishes words on the stamp, inked the stamp, removed the sticky note and stamped.  Voila- a greeting to use any time of the year.

Or just stamp the flowers a little on the edge of your front layer:

The insides of the cards were fun to customize.  My daughter is expecting her first child so this is her first Mother’s Day.  A greeting in the “Special Celebrations” stamp set was perfect:

The Daisy Delight stamp set on page 127 had the ideal message for the many thank you notes I needed after my father’s passing.

For dear family and friends, the Occasions Catalog “Petal Palette”, page 23, has the perfect message:

And of course Mother’s Day is coming up so I went back to the Special Celebrations stamp set for a special message:

Card Base:  Whisper White 8 1/2″  X 5 1/2″  Scored at 4 1/4″

Island Indigo Layer:  5 1/4″  X 4″, Make two

Whisper White top layer:  5 X 3 3/4″, Make two

Stamping Order for the top is a bit critical so you don’t have the images running into each other:

  1. Stamp the greeting at the bottom
  2. Stamp the dragonfly
  3. Stamp the flowers

Color the dragonfly with Wink of Stella, then line up the Large Letters Framelits, #141712, spelling HUGS on your stamped top layer and run through the Big Shot.  Adhere all your layers and then put Foam Adhesive Strips, #141825, on the back of the cut out letters and glue the letters back in their respective spaces. Helpful Hint:   I adhered the letter framelits to a large sticky note and then placed the sticky noted letters on the top layer so I could use it over and over without realigning the framelits each time.
I checked Eclipse cards on Pinterest and found so many words that were used:  HOPE, LOVE, YOU, WISH, BDAY, MOM, BABY, BOY, DAD, GIRL, GIVE, NOEL, (NAME), (DATE), JUST, FAITH, JOY, 4EVER, EPIC, BEST (friend).  Graduation cards with dates are popular now using the retiring Large Number Framelit set, #140622.   The Large Letters framelits will carryover to the new catalog but not the numbers set.

Have fun making your own Eclipse cards!

Retiring Products and Color Revamp

Hello Stamping Friends,

Grab your wish list and click to view pictured images of the retiring products:

Note:  When a bundle retires, the associated products may not necessarily retire.  They will be in the new catalog if they are not listed in the other categories but they will not be bundled for a 10% savings.

Don’t panic as I did when I saw all the ink pads that were listed.  We are doing a complete color revamp that is just amazing.  Along with new colors we will now have new ink pads with a new ink formula that won’t foam.

Pictured List of Bundles * 

Pictured List of Everything Else

*The bundles always expire at the end of a catalog but not necessarily the stamp sets; you will order each individually without the 10% discount.

Some products are being reconfigured so they are shown as retiring but will be back with a new look -the Pearl Basic Jewels and Rhinestones are examples- and look at those sale prices – $3.50 for pearls and $2.50 for rhinestones!  They will be back but they will be mounted individually so you don’t have to cut the glue between them.  Nice!  (However, I can keep cutting at the retired price!)  The adhesive remover is going away and there is not a symbol on the list that shows it is being reconfigured so I suggest getting one or more of those.  The Big Shot die brush is coming back with better construction so don’t panic on that one.  Staz On ink, refill and the Staz On cleaner are going away as well as Heat and Stick powder so you may want to get a supply of those.   Ribbons and bakers twine will come back in different colors but get the colors you like now before they are gone.  I thought I might cry when I saw the Organza Ribbon being discontinued, it is my very favorite and can be colored to match all our inks.  Oh sigh…..goodbye beautiful ribbon!

The new catalog will be out June 1 but wouldn’t you love to see it now??  Join my team and you will be able to view the catalog and place preorders on select products in May!  Plus receive 20%-25% off everything you buy and earn other incentives, like the upcoming trip to Alaska.  Next year is Stampin’ Up! ‘s  30 year celebration in Orlando, FL,  and there are local conventions for demonstrators which are so much fun!  Through May 31 you even get a free Paper Pumpkin with the $99 starter kit!
