The BIG List

You should have already seen the list of retiring stamp sets I posted on my Facebook Page. It's quite a long one, and this one is even longer! There are several items discounted up to 60% off at the beginning of the list, and if there is ANYTHING at all you'd like to order, do it ASAP. These items are only available while supplies last. Here's THE LIST. Anything with an "X" in the right side column is already sold out. You can also click on the image at the right to see pictures of everything still available right from my website.

I also want to take a moment to give you some information about our ink pads. You might notice that ALL ink colors are on the retired list, but this isn't because we're launching a whole new set of colors. What's actually happening is something awesome! Stampin' Up! has redesigned the pad portion of your favorite ink pads. They are referred to as "Firm Foam Pads." They will even include labels as seen below that you can place on the end of your pads to identify the colors quickly and easily!

You’re going to love these new Stampin’ Pads; they have many benefits like these listed below:
  • Better ink coverage for your stamps!
  • Light-tap stamping produces flawless images!
  • Pad stays juicier longer, which means better ink pad longevity!
Please note: Five ink colors have undergone formula changes to improve functionality and color stability with the new firm foam pads. These colors are:
Basic Black
Basic Gray
Marina Mist
Perfect Plum
Tempting Turquoise
All five colors of the reformulated inks have been fully tested and approved. While using the new ink formula in the old Stampin’ Pads is fine, it is not recommended that you use the old ink formula in the new firm foam pads.
Here is an excerpt from the SU! Demo site:
"Q: What are some additional features of the new firm foam pads that I can share with my customers?
A: See additional features below:
  • The firm foam is nice and flat and will not become wavy.
  • The firm foam material does not imprint on the stamp images like the felt pad sometimes did. However, because the firm foam material is a foam base material, the stamp image can momentarily leave an imprint on the pad, which can transfer to a second stamped image. By inking your stamp on different areas of the pad or waiting momentarily for the ink to rise back to the top, you can easily avoid this situation.
  • The firm foam material is soft and has a nice bounce to it. It's not hard like the felt is.
  • The ink lay-down (how the ink is absorbed into the card stock) is even, not blotchy, and dries quickly. It has an increased opacity and stamps solid images beautifully."
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. If I can't answer your question I will be glad to follow up with SU! and get the answer!

Visit my website to see the retiring items before they're gone, and place your order! The launch of our new catalog is June 1, 2012!!!

Stampy Hugs,
