HI friends!

I know you are curious about the upcoming new 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! catalog, the retiring products from the current catalogs, and basically, "What happens next? Now that Sale-a-Bration is done!?"

  Retirement

I'm here to help!

April 8, 2017:  Demonstrators attending a Stampin' Up! OnStage event will see the new 2017-2018 catalog!!

April 10, 2017 - 1pm MT:  the RETIRING LISTS for customers and demonstrators will be released - watch my blog (here) for that list as soon as I can get it published for you!

Retiring In Colors

 

It's almost that time of year again!!!  Retirement!

 

Retiring Stampin' UP! In Colors 2015 to 2017. Click Shop online at www.PattyStamps.com

 

If you are familiar with the Stampin' Up! In Colors, you know that we have a set of 5 colors that only last for 2 years, then they retire and are replaced with 5 new colors.  So, you may be wondering about the 5 retiring colors.

 

5 Retiring In Colors

 

Question:  Patty, why are you talking about them now?

Answer: NOW is the time to stock up on a reinker for your ink pad, on cardstock, designer paper, and on the ribbon or embellishments you enjoy in these colors BEFORE they are sold out, AND while you can enjoy FREE Sale-a-Bration gifts on your purchases!! :)  Click Here for Sale-a-Bration gift info.

 

Don't delay.. if you wait too long to order your retiring In Color supplies, you'll end up paying BIG prices on ebay when Stampin' Up! supplies are exhausted... trust me... I know this. :)

Quick Reminder about the NEW Stampin' UP! Catalog

 

It's such an exciting time of the Stampin' UP! year!

The NEW 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! catalog is coming soon!

I will be ordering them on May 3rd and then sending them back out to my customers by mid-May.

 

Important Facts to Note:

  • If you are one of my regular customers, you will receive one automatically
  • If you shop with several demonstrators, I will no longer have your info on my list, so you will need to contact your primary demonstrator for a catalog
  • If you have been placing your orders with me under the option for not being contacted by your demonstrator, I do not have your name, email, phone or mailing address.. to correct that:

 

Verify that you are not an anonymous customer to me... if you have clicked the button to have no contact from your demonstrator, I cannot see your name or your address (that might be why you are not getting thank you cards, special offers and catalogs from me!)

To verify that.. click here, then SIGN IN, then click MY ACCOUNT, then click MY DEMONSTRATOR and make sure you see this info... CLICK YES so that I can see who you are.  SAVE CHANGES and you are done!  Thanks!

No contact option pattystamps

         

I'm so excited to share the catalog with you!!!  I was working on my Shopping List and having a little Cheese It's snack the other day...  What's your fave snack for crafting time or browsing through the new catalog?? :)

 

PattyStamps will be sending out new Stampin Up catalogs in May 2016!  Are you on the list?

If you receive a new In Color Bookmark in your new catalog from me.. be sure to look at the back.. there will be a prize listed there and if you email me to tell me the secret code and the prize, I'll send you that prize!!

 

2016-2018 in color bookmark randomly included in the new catalogs mailed out by Patty Bennett - you could win a prize!

 

Our Current catalogs are available through May 31.. please

This is the time to Stock Up on In Colors!

Do you know about the Stampin' UP! In Color program?

Each year when the new annual catalog comes out (June 1, 2016 is the next one) there will be 5 new In Colors introduced, and that is the FUN news.. but the sad news is, that means 5 colors WILL RETIRE!!

The RETIRING In Colors are shown below.. these ink pads, cardstock packs, ink refills, and In Color Accessories will only be available while supplies last.  In past years, once they are announced on the Retiring List, they have sold out QUICKLY! 

WHY am I telling you this NOW?  So that you can place your order NOW, get them before they are gone, but also so that you can take advantage of the FREE GIFTS offered during Sale a Bration!

 

  Stampin' UP! Retiring In Colors from 2014 - 2016. Available while supplies last. Click Shop Online at www.PattyStamps.com

 

I have created a little sampler of In Color cards for you using the retiring 5 In Colors, Hello Honey, Blackberry Bliss, Tangelo Twist, Lost Lagoon and Mossy Meadow.  I have used some fun products on these cards:

When you purchase a minimum of $50 of these products above (or any Stampin' UP! products), you will have earned a free Sale a Bration item!  I selected the "What I Love" flower set on pg 7 of the Sale a Bration catalog as my FREE item!

Check out the great use of the Suite Sayings stamp set below.. what a fabulous versatile set! Click here for more info!

 

Stampin' UP! Retiring In Colors from 2014 - 2016. Available while supplies last. Click Shop Online at www.PattyStamps.com

Which Color will you miss the most?  Leave me a comment and let me know!

 

Confetti embossing folder and Wink of Stella Glitter pen embellish these Stampin' UP! Retiring In Color cards from 2014 - 2016. Available while supplies last. Click Shop Online at www.PattyStamps.com

I embossed each 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White piece of cardstock with the Confetti embossing folder in my Big Shot (see it on pg 5 of the 2016 Occasions catalog), and then stamped 2 of the flowers right on the cardstock.  I stamped an extra flower on a separate piece of cardstock, cut it out with my Paper Snips, and mounted it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals to raise it up.  The leaf on each card is stamped and die cut in Mossy Meadow ink/cardstock, using the Botanical Blooms stamp set and Botanical Builder Framelit set.

 

Add the Wink of Stella Glitter pen to your stamped "What I Love" flowers from Sale a Bration 2016 from Stampin' UP!

 

The last finishing touch was to color the raised flower with the Wink of Stella Glitter pen to give it a pop of shimmer and shine!

 

Stock up NOW on the retiring colors before they run out.. .because they will! History shows that the retiring In Colors can sell out as soon as the 1st day that they are officially announced as retiring.

GET FREE STUFF when you order In Colors! Select the What I Love flower set if you would like to make a set of these In Color cards as shown in this blog post.

 

Stampin' UP! Retiring In Colors from 2014 - 2016. Available while supplies last. Click Shop Online at www.PattyStamps.com

This great flower stamp can be yours free with any $50 purchase, but only through March 31, 2016.  It's called "What I Love" and it's on pg 7 of the Sale a Bration brochure!  Add #141276 to your $50 order! :)
 

 

SHOP ONLINE: If you need any of the supplies to create this card, just click on any of the product photos below and it will take you right to my online store.

QUESTIONS: If you have any questions, please leave me a comment!

Retiring Stampin' Up! Product Blog Hop

 

Blog Hop Header-001

Welcome!

Welcome to our blog hop featuring Retiring Stampin' Up! products.

Wendy asked me to be a part of this blog hop highlighting retiring products with creations by a few of the Luv 2 Stamp Group members, and I am excited to be a part of this hop!

click to view all the retiring stamps and accessories

Below: my first project features the Tag a Bag tag kit and Glimmer Brads, both on the retiring accessories list.  These tags are great on cards, gifts, as mini banners, or you can use them as bookmarks too!

Tag-a-bag-notecards-glimmer-brads

Check out my Tag a Bag Tag storage solution here!

Tag-a-bag-tags-glimmer-brads

Below:  the Tag a Bag Bags are cute when decorated with these tags as well!  The image stamped on the tag is from the Tag It stamp set, also retiring this year.  The bag is embellished with accessories from the Tag a Bag Tag kit and also some retiring Coastal Cabana ruffled ribbon.

Tag-a-bag-tag-it-ruffled-ribbon

Below:  the retiring products on this cute note card include:  Gingham Garden Washi Tape, and the small Heart Punch, on a Whisper White Note Cards.  Seriously.. how can this little heart punch retire!?  Eeek!

Washi tape notecard hearts 1

Below:  The retiring Lattice Big Shot die is featured on this card.  To make this card, die cut the opening in the front of your folded Whisper White card first, using the Window Frame Collection framelits, then die cut Whisper White cardstock with the Lattice Die and place that piece of lattice in the opening.  Place any color carstock behind the opening. Isn't this pretty!?  I used Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock behind the opening and finished off the card with Black Chevron Ribbon and a stamped tag punched out with the Extra-Large Oval punch, layered on a Deco Labels Collection die cut.

Lattice-big-shot-die-card

Below:  I know I've shared this card before but these leaves are SO pretty and I can't believe this set is retiring, so I wanted to repost this card.  I die cut the card with the Circle Card Thinlits, and stamped it with the Gently Falling stamp set.

Gently-falling-circle-thinlit-card

As you know the Retiring Stamp set list and Retiring Accessory list went live at 12:00am Monday morning, and several items have already sold out because all retiring products are available “While Supplies Last”. Some of the products we have featured on our Retired List Blog hop may already be sold out, and we apologize for any frustration this may cause. We hope you enjoy the ideas and are able to order the retiring products on YOUR Wish List!

Thank you for joining me from Nicole's blog!

Stampin Up Retiring List info and my Ebay Story

 

If you are wondering about info for the NEW Stampin' Up! Catalog and the products that will be retiring from our current catalog, I have the dates for you right here:

  • APRIL 21:  RETIRING Products from the current annual Stampin' Up! catalog will be announced on April 21, 2014   .. CHECK back here for that list on the 21st
  • JUNE 2: NEW Stampin' Up! catalog products for customer ordering begins at Noon (MT) on Monday, June 2 (reserve yours here)
  • JUNE 4:  Last day to order any of the retiring products - but all retiring products are only WHILE SUPPLIES LAST, so don't wait til June!

The only products that we already know of that will be on the Retiring List are the 2012/2014 In Colors.  VIEW THEM / ORDER THEM HERE.

 

Retiring-in-colors-stampin-up-pattystamps

As I mentioned above, all retiring products are "while supplies last", so don't wait too long to order... in fact, if there are accessories or 2012-2014 In Color products that you want, order them now, or be online on April 21st to order.

I have an Ebay story for you ... When Stampin' Up! first annouced the "In Color" program several years ago, I had an extra set of retiring In Color reinkers.  Since I do not keep retiring products, I put those 5 In Color reinkers on ebay shortly after they retired, and to my surprise, they sold for $99 !!!!  I think Stampin' Up! customers did not quite understand that when the In Colors retired, they really retired.. and people wanted those reinkers!!  SO, why do I tell you this?  Get your retiring In Color products NOW so that you don't end up paying crazy ebay prices for retired items in June!  Just think.. that person could have saved $84 by purchasing the reinkers from a demonstrator while they were still available instead of buying them on ebay!

OK, so that was my public service announcement for the day  :)

 

Tomorrow is the Last Day for my DOUBLE PRIZES offer!

Hi Friends... WOW! What a Treat!

TWO BLOG HOPS IN ONE WEEK!

I'm excited to participate in another blog hop with several talented Stampin' Up! bloggers who are showcasing retiring Stampin' Up! stamp sets and accessories today. 

I hope you will take a moment to visit us all! 

Here is our Blog Line Up:

Patty Bennett

Wendy Cranford

Laura Vogt

Gloria Plunkett

Lydia Fiedler

Katina Martinez

 

I have two projects to share with you featuring Retiring Stampin' Up! items.

My first project features a stamp set and a background stamp that I'm really sad to see leave us: the VINTAGE VOGUE stamp set, on pg 147 in the current catalog (item 117690 or 118598), and the MEDALLION background stamp on pg 149, item 115223.

Vintage vogue medallion
I stamped the Medallion stamp in Chocolate Chip ink on white carstock, cut it out, then cut a slit in it and ran it through the crimper, then pleated it using Sticky Strip to make the "ruffle". Another retiring product I'm sad to see go is the 5/8" Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon!! (#124327)... (hey, it's even on clearance!!) :)

You can view a VIDEO TUTORIAL
for this project and ruffled lace technique HERE.

..and my 2nd project showcases a fabulous Stampin' Up! accessory that I am SO SAD to see leave us.. the ELEGANT TRIO stencil set!!! It's on pg 234, item #118262
Elegant trio 2
This Elegant Trio Stencil card also features the retiring VINTAGE VOGUE stamp set on pg 147, item 117690 or 118598.  I used the "emboss resist" technique on the large stenciled flower..  sponged through the stencil with Regal Rose Craft ink, embossed in clear embossing powder, then heated.  THEN I sponged the image in the upper left corner with the stencil and Soft Suede ink, but it did not cover where the flower was already embossed (thus, emboss resist - see a video here for that technique).
And yet another RETIRING ACCESSORY on this card.. the lovely CERTAINLY CELERY 5/8" SATIN RIBBON, #117288.
I hope you will take a moment to review all of the RETIRING Stampin' Up! products.. you only have 9 days left to shop... then the NEW CATALOG BEGINS!! :)

You have probably joined me after visiting Cindy Major's blog, and you can click on the "next blog" link at the bottom of the post to continue on the tour.  (All of our projects will be live no later than Sunday morning.. if you are joining me Saturday night, you may need to check back tomorrow if all links are not quite working yet.)

 It's that sad time of year to say goodbye to our beloved Stampin' Up! Retiring sets and accessories.. our blog tour today will help you remember these delightful and favorite old friends.

My first sample features one of my all time favorite sets, FIFTH AVENUE FLORAL.  You will find this on pg 110 in the current catalog, item #113734.  I used the watercolor float technique on this sample. The color really pops against the Crumb Cake card.

 Next up, My very favorite retiring accessory (sooooooooo sad this is going)... The ELEGANT TRIO DECOR STENCIL set.  These stencils are on pg 234 of the current catalog, item #118262.  Such a great deal at $9.95 for the 3 stencils!!  I sponged color with the flower stencil with Regal Rose and Cherry Cobbler ink and a Stampin' Sponge.
