Yesterday the Retiring Lists came out as well as a lot more information about the Color Revamp and the redesign of our ink pads. It was confusing, even to me! So let’s do a quick recap and talk about how it relates to the Retiring Lists. If you have any questions, please contact me!

Retiring Colors

Seventeen current Stampin’ Up! colors are retiring (four are current In Colors).  That means that anything related to these products (stamp pads, markers, ink refills, cardstock, embellishments) will be retiring as well.  My recommendation is to get what you want as soon as possible although Stampin’ Up! has released some information about availability of these RETIRING products.

  • Classic Stamp Pads:  Guaranteed stock of old ink pad design through May 7, 2018.  After this date, it will be while supplies last.
  • Classic Stamp Pad Collections (all of the colors of a family):  While supplies last
  • Classic Stampin’ Ink Refills:  Guaranteed stock until May 7, 2018.  After this date, while supplies last.
  • Single packages of cardstock:  While supplies last
  • Cardstock Packs Collections:  While supplies last
  • Stampin’ Write Markers:  While supplies last
  • Color Caddy:  While supplies last
  • Color Embellishments:  While supplies last

Archival Inks Retiring

Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying Archival Ink so the Basic Black and Basic Gray Archival Inks and Refills are on the the retirement list. If you’re worried about what to use when you watercolor, Staz-On is returning (YAY!!) and it’s perfect for watercoloring while Memento Ink works with our Stampin’ Blends. Basic Gray will return as part of the Classic Stampin’ Ink Family but it won’t be archival.

New Ink Pads

We will have an updated ink pad case in the new catalog. The actual foam of the pad has NOT changed but  the formulation of the ink has.  A defoamer has been added to the ink which will prevent bubbling, help get an even coating of the ink on the stamp and help the stamped image have a smoother, solid look.

You CAN use the the new ink refills on old stamp pads (the new ink refills and stamp pads will be available on June 1, 2018 when the new catalog goes live)! The only exception is that the Basic Gray Archival ink cannot be used with the Basic Gray Classic Stamp pad.  These are two separate inks.

Returning In Colors

Six previous In Colors are returning. Yesterday I left Mossy Meadow out of the lineup but I think it was because I was so excited about Blackberry Bliss and Coastal Cabana coming back!  Here are all six:

Mossy Meadow

Poppy Parade

Flirty Flamingo

Coastal Cabana
