NEWS FLASH: 13 Retiring Stampin Up Colors To Get NOW!

Retiring Stampin Up Colors

I just got back from Onstage in Las Vegas where Stampin’ Up! revealed their 30th Anniversary Catalog that starts June 1st. To say it’s overflowing with amazing new goodies is a huge understatement!!! They hit it out of the park… NO!.. out of the county. Maybe out of the state! Plan to be overwhelmed with giddiness like me. Just start saving now– you’re gonna have a long wish list! lol

While there is sooo much to share, there’s also plenty of time- except for the news of the retiring Stampin Up colors! This is always the biggie and this year it’s a HUGE biggie!  All the retiring color products sell like wildfire after today’s announcement, so I want my team and customers to know first! I’m looking out for ya!

Here’s a quick video with the full reveal of all retiring colors plus a couple surprises…

Good News? Bad News?

If you’d rather read it or print the list, I’ve got you covered. I know colors are like friends, so I’ll share the bad news first, then the good news!

  • Bads news: Stampin’ Up! is retiring 13 colors 
  • Good news: There’s 16 new and returning colors to replace them! woo-HOO! And you’re gonna love them just as much! They’re trendy, fun  and together with the existing colors, create new exciting combos!

In addition, Stampin’ Up!’s retiring the Archival stamp pads*. The Archival ‘Basic Gray’ color will stay, but return in the Classic style pad like all his friends, which really makes a lot of sense. The Basic Black Archival pad is being replaced with Staz-On ‘Jet Black’ and I promise you’ll hardly notice. I’ve always thought they seemed the same anyhow. Memento’s ‘Tuxedo Black’ Ink pad remains an option, so we have full coverage for all our coloring mediums like the Stampin’ Blend alcohol markers, Stampin’ Write dye markers, blender pens and Watercolor.

 Here’s the full list of retiring Stampin Up colors by collection…
