Retiring bundles


For the bundles, some these products will carry over to the new Annual Catalog (debuts on June 1st).  However, they will be offered individually and no longer available as a 10% off bundle.  To take advantage of the bundle pricing, buy now.


Everything else (tools, ink pads, card stock, ribbon, embellishments & more).  Click the above link to view all the other items that are retiring.  Note:  our ink pad design will get a face lift in the next catalog.  Also, some of the colors will be retired.  Please see Color Revamp with retiring color information below.

I wanted to provide you with more information on what colors are leaving, coming back and being added for the first time.  It’s so exciting to get new colors, and I truly believe this color revamp is the best ever!


There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics.  In order to keep the color collections to exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White have been moved out of the Neutrals collection. Stampin’ Up! also moved a few colors (Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow and Night of Navy) into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colorful.


Some additional colors have changed position in the collections as well.

The charts here can be downloaded and printed and will give you all the information you need about these changes:  Color Revamp charts & summary PDF








And so here’s what the Color Collections will look like in the new 2018 Annual Catalog:

Stampin’ Up! is also redesigning our stamp pads to give you the absolute best product on the market.  The case is a new, more intuitive design and they improved the formula of the ink, as well!

Why the change to the case?

The case’s manufacturing mold was about to expire. Stampin’ Up! can only use a mold a limited number of times before they need to replace it, so they had to decide if they wanted to order more of the same molds or try to improve the design.   They chose to improve it! 


Stampin’ Up! wanted to align the updated case with the color revamp and improvements to the ink. In addition, they chose to time these changes with Stampin’ Up!’s rebranding and packaging updates. This way, when you invest in the new colors, you are also getting the new and improved ink pads at the same time!


What’s better about the case?
  • Less confusing to open. 
  • Tighter fit between the lid and the base. 
  • Stackable. 
  • Improved labels and stickers.


How is the ink different?
  • Reduced ink bubbles.
  • Smoother coating of ink on the stamp.
  • Improved ink coverage. 
  • You can re-ink the new ink pads with old re-inkers, you just won’t get the benefit of the defoamer that’s been added to the new re-inkers. The only exception to this is, you don’t want to use the Archival Basic Gray Re-inker on the new pads because it will ruin it.
