Stampin’ Up! Retiring Accessories List & BIG Discounts Are HERE!

It’s here! The Stampin’ Up! Retiring Accessories List is now available and check-out the amazing savings on many of the retiring products!!!

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. They will be available for customer order on June 1.

In addition, please note the following changes in the new catalog, which explains some of the products being on the retired list:

  • 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.
  • Any item with an asterisk next to it is being reconfigured.  An example of this could be repackaging, as in the example above of the markers.
  • Other than the retiring 2010-2012 In Colors, the Stampin’ Up! colors are NOT retiring.


Two items that were included on the Retiring Accessories List are not  actually retiring. SU updated the lists to remove these items.

208 108360 Craft Scissors
208 103579 Paper Snips

I have always been one to embrace change and am very optimistic that the new catalog will fulfill my stamping dreams of dishy new stamps, creative tools, yummy paper and splashy embellishments!

Cool Batik Background

I used wax paper to resist the ink for this cool batik looking background.

Wax Paper Resist

This beautiful background was a result of crumpling the wax paper. It really compliments the giraffe theme.

This one used the Finial Press embossing folder. Giving it a gorgeous leathery feel.

Stamp Sets: Zoo Review, Friendly Phrases
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz. Markers – Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories: Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding, Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon, Finial Press Embossing Folder, Crystal Effects, Dimensionals
