New Cling Stamps ~ By Stampin’ Up!

New Cling Stamps ~ By Stampin’ Up!


Cling stamps were first introduced in Japan beginning with their 2018-2019 annual catalog. The new stamp line has been a smashing success. We are excited to offer cling stamps in all other markets beginning with the 2019 occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure. During the transition, be sure to view product details carefully both in publications (each stamp type is identified with an icon) and when placing orders to note the stamp medium. It will clearly state, CLING STAMP, in the description of what you are buying.

Details!

  • Beginning with the 2019 occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure, all new stamp sets will be available either in cling (for red rubber stamps) or photopolymer.
  • Stamps in the 2018-2019 annual catalog will continue to be available in clear-mount, wood-mount, or photopolymer.
  • Red rubber stamp sets (clear-mount or wood-mount) in the annual catalog that will be carrying over will transition to cling with the 2019-2020 annual catalog.
  • In 2019-2020 annual catalog, clear-mount and wood-mount stamps* will no longer be available. The only exception is background stamps in North America only, which will still be available in wood-mount.
    *Wood-mount stamp set sales have been steadily declining for several years. Stampin’ Up! research and sales teams took this and several other factors into consideration before discontinuing wood-mount stamps. We are confident the transition to cling stamps will be beneficial in many ways for demonstrators, customers, and the company.

Training!

Labeling cling stamps is a slightly different process than you may be used to. It is important to follow the steps below to assemble cling stamps. Each cling stamp case will also include labeling instructions.

Note: Once you place the label on the stamp, it is adhered permanently.Attempting to remove or adjust the label will damage the stamp’s foam.

  • Remove the paper backing from the label.
  • Remove your selected stamp from the rubber sheet and remove the paper backing from the stamp.
  • Line up the foam side of the stamp with the image label, then press it evenly to adhere it to the label. Make sure it is correctly positioned before you adhere it to the stamp.
  • Remove the stamp and its newly-affixed image label from the label sheet.
  • Place the stamp on an acrylic block to begin stamping.

Best Practices!

To remove the stamp from the block, grasp securely near the image label and remove slowly. (Cling stamps stick so well that if they are not carefully removed from the block, the foam can tear.) To clean the labels, simply rinse under running water. Avoid alcohol-based cleaners.

Last but not least, watch the video here to gain confidence in using these new, fun stamps!

Thanks for stopping by today! I will see you again, soon!

The Retiring List

The Retiring List

Every year Stampin’ Up! retires products from their current catalog in order to make room for the new stuff coming out in their new catalog. April and May are hard months because the retiring list comes out and then everyone tries to get their goods before they sell out.

It’s hard for demonstrator’s too because we strategically try and demonstrate items that are going to be around after the new catalog goes LIVE.

The Daisy Punch ~ Showcased Product of the Week

The Daisy Punch ~ Showcased Product of the Week

This past week I had featured The Daisy Punch, by Stampin’ Up! on my Facebook page (@thepapercraftaddict). This punch has unlimited amount of uses and I am so pleased to announce that it will be around for another year. Woohoo!!

I started Monday off with this beautiful Brushing Bride and Night of Navy card. It is a standard 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base with 1/2″ Night of Navy stripes making my own background. The Daisy Punch and The Leaf Punch just pop off this card and my sentiment came from Abstract Impressions.

These beautiful MOM cards are made with our Large Letter Framelits (which are retiring at the end of May) and our Gingham Gala DSP. It is NOT too early to start thinking of Mother’s Day and these cards really make a statement!

I ended 3D Thursday with this beautiful floral arrangement showcasing some glittered up daisies.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this showcased product. I will blog more about individual projects soon, but if you don’t want to miss out on the showcased product of the week get on over to Facebook @thepapercraftaddict and follow me. This week we are thinking about Thank you Cards.

I’ll be seeing you!

2 Quick Updates from Stampin’ Up!

2 Quick Updates from Stampin’ Up!

As of June 30, the Stampin’ Trimmer, including replacement blades and cutting mats will be retired.

Over the years, Stampin’ Up! has experienced difficulty getting replacement blades and other challenges with the supplier.

Stampin’ Up! is dedicated to offering top-notch products and is in the process of still researching a replacement cutter to offer.

ORDER YOUR REPLACEMENT BLADES NOW
There is a limit of 3 packages of blades (6 blades) that can currently be ordered at a time. Beginning April 15th, that limit will change to 6 packages (12 blades).

We expect there to be a RUN ON BLADES as soon as word is out so, I am trying to be the first to notify you so that you can get your blades ordered now.

With the news of the paper trimmer, I also wanted to share the information about the Big Shot.
As of June 30, the Stampin’ Up! Big Shot, as well as all accessories will be retired.

Just like the trimmer, Stampin’ Up! is working on a different die cutting machine to offer, however, it will be some time before it’s available.

GOOD NEWS — Stampin’ Up! will continue to offer dies and embossing folders. They will work in the existing Big Shot and all other DIE CUTTING MACHINES on the market.

ORDER YOUR REPLACEMENT CUTTING PADS & ACCESSORIES NOW!

Just like the cutting blades for the Trimmer, I expect a run on all of these accessories. If you have a BIG SHOT, and have not yet purchased these products, now is the time to do so!!!

I highly recommend stocking up on the CUTTING PADS!

I always enjoy sharing fun and exciting news but with the good sometimes there is change. Change is not always bad – but it is different.

I will try and help filter some of the questions that might arise over the next few months as we get use to two major items being discontinued.

With change comes excitement too and just like the Stamparatus I am super excited to see what Stampin’ Up! does with the task of finding new items.

Thanks for stopping by,
