Parisian Beauty Vintage Card

I designed this vintage card that uses the Parisian Beauty and Forever Blossoms stamp sets as a make’n’take for my vendor show this weekend.  I have 100 stampers making this card tomorrow night at the Mesquite Convention Center in Mesquite, Texas.  Wow, I just looked it up, and this will be my 8th year to do this Stamp Scrap Art Tour Show.  My daughter just moved backed to Texas and will be my helper all weekend.  The make’n’take is Friday night and shopping is Saturday and Sunday.  Come see me if you live in the North Dallas area.

Stampin’ Up! Retired List – 2019

It’s time to make room for great new products and say goodbye to some of our favorites and the In Colors that are 2 years old.

Stampin Up retired lists 2019 for occasions and annual catalog.

Here are the lists:

Retiring stamp sets will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.

Make sure to place your online orders here as soon as possible to ensure that you can get all the items you want.  Take inventory of your In Color items to make sure you have ink refills and card stock for your favorite colors before they are out of stock.  The trimmer accessories are already out of stock before the list announced, except more replacement blades are coming on April 29th.

One thing we noticed right away was that the old favorite, Lovely as a Tree, finally is retiring.  It’s been kind of a joke among us demonstrators that they would never retire that one.  One of my downlines, Becky, said she finally bought that one a few days before OnStage.  So, we can blame her—like washing your car, now that she finally bought it, it’s retired.

Oh, also, once the existing inventory of stamp sets that carry over into the new annual catalog are depleted, they will be replaced with the cling versions.  So, you might be getting cling versions of existing sets before they are “available” in the new catalog.

Stampin’ Up! Color ReVamp – New Colors

There was some confusion about what information we could share with everyone after the OnStage event earlier this month.  Well, good news, we can share the new color chart that shows the color families from the new catalog that starts in June.  Here it is:

Stampin' Up! color collections revamp 2018

In addition, we have the Basics which are Basic Black, Whisper White, and Very Vanilla.  And, 5 new In Colors.

I can’t wait to play and re-organize all my card stock and ink pads…I’m actually looking forward to all the fun of sorting and re-organizing everything.

Please email me at if you need a copy of the June catalog mailed to you.  All my regular local peeps will get a copy at my Open House on June 2nd & June 3rd or when I see them at stamp club.

Happy Stampin’

Even though 13 colors are retiring, 6 will be returning as well as 10 new ones to round out an amazing line up of 40 Core Colors, 10 In Colors, and 3 Basics Colors.  More on new colors later when we can reveal them.

The 13 retiring colors are:

  1. Chocolate Chip
  2. Tangerine Tango
  3. Tempting Turquoise
  4. Soft Sky
  5. Marina Mist
  6. Wild Wasabi
  7. Always Artichoke
  8. Wisteria Wonder
  9. Island Indigo
  10. Pink Pirouette
  11. Elegant Eggplant
  12. Rose Red
  13. Perfect Plum

Retiring In Colors:

  1. Dapper Denim
  2. Emerald Envy
  3. Peekaboo Peach
  4. Sweet Sugarplum
  5. Flirty Flamingo won’t retire, it will be joining the Core Colors.

I can’t wait to play with the new and returning colors. 

In addition, the molds for our stamp pads were needing to be replaced, so Stampin’ Up! decided to use this opportunity to improve the design.  Here’s the new design.  They still flip, but the lids seal tighter and they open easier.  Oh, and the lid stays connected.  They also stack flush with little round indents and dots in all corners (top & bottom)…nice!

The new labels come with a color label for the inside so we don’t have to make our own!
