Stampin' Up! Dainty delight Spring 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Country Gingham 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Gnomes Photopolymer Stamp Set and Stampin’ Up!

I started by adhering a panel of Country Gingham DSP to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Dainty delight Spring 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the swish image from the Season of Chic stamp set in So Saffron, Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron Inks. I stamped the flower image from the Dainty Delight stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel. I adhered the artwork to a Blushing Bride mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a So Saffron mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of White Bakers Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack around the layered panel twice and tied a bow. I adhered the layered panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! Color Refresh Coming Soon!!!

Stampin’ Up1 is all about creativity and sharing what we love with those we love. And that means providing a compelling selection of high-quality craft supplies in coordinating colors and designs. We’re always working to not only meet trends but set them. That means evaluating and even refreshing our current products—This year we’re refreshing our complete color collection!

Stampin’ Up! has announced that, in addition to the new 2023-2025 In Colors, we’ll be getting some new colors in the core color families (Brights, Neutrals, Regals and Subtles) with the new 2023-2024 Annual Catalog! You’ll find some new friends and returning favorites among our Brights, Neutrals, Regals, and Subtles. And you won’t want to miss our new 2023–2025 In Colors. We hope you’re as excited as we are to start crafting with these fresh new colors and to share them with your fellow crafting enthusiasts. 

We haven’t been told what colors will be retiring, but if you have any favorites that you can’t live without, stock up now!   We do know that the current 2021-2023 In-Colors (Evening Evergreen, Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent) will be retiring. You might want to stock up on the Cardstock, DSP, Reinkers, Stampin’ Blends Markers, Stampin’ Write Markers, Ribbons etc. When supplies run out, they will not be restocking them.

More details about the updates to the color list will be announced on March 29 so look for more information then.  And pick up a few of your favorite colors now to make sure that you’ll have a good supply if your favorites end up retiring with the color refresh!

*********************************************************************************************************

Price Changes Coming With The 2023-2024 Annual Catalog

Stampin’ Up! let us know that some of the items in the new catalog will have higher prices when the catalog is launched on May 2.  The prices for all items that are carrying over will continue to be the current catalog prices through May 1.  So now is a great time to stock up on any favorites before the price increases happen in early May!  We have not been told any specifics on the amount that the prices will increase but we have been given a list of items that will increase in price with the new catalog.

Due to increased costs to produce these items, beginning May 2 new prices will be in effect within the following product categories:

  • Cardstock
  • Designer Series Paper
  • Specialty Paper
  • Notecards and Envelopes
  • Classic Stampin’ Ink Pads and Refills

  • Paper Pumpkin

To see the updated pricing, check the new 2023–2024 Annual Catalog.  I’ll be mailing out the catalogs in mid-April to my ordering customers so take a peek when it arrives in your mailbox.  So, the good news is that you will have time to order any last-minute items before the new pricing starts once you see the upcoming catalog!
