Stampin’ Up! News

New Catalogue, New Hostess Rewards!

With the new 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalogue comes a brand new way to earn Hostess Rewards!  Instead of earning Hostess-Only stamp sets, and Hostess Dollars towards a catalogue shopping spree, you earn more Hostess Dollars that you can put towards anything in the catalogue!  That means if you don’t want any of the Hostess-Only stamp sets, you can use the Hostess Dollars on other stuff.  Or if you would rather stock up on Hostess-Only stamp sets, you can do that too!

There is now also a way to earn 50% off full-priced items in the catalogue.  Check out the new Hostess Rewards table below!

It’s a Colour Renovation!!!!

I am SO excited about the news I’m about to tell you!  Stampin’ Up! is planning a Colour Renovation, and it’s HUGE!!!

The changes are drastic, but good.  A lot of colours are retiring….30 to be exact.  Yup, that’s right!  Thirty colours will be gone when this catalogue ends!  But you have plenty of time to stock up before they are gone forever.

The colour families we know and love will be gone, to be replaced by new Colour Collections.  Starting July 1st we will have the Brights Collection, Neutrals Collection, Regal Collection and Subtle Collection.  These collections will include colours that are carrying over from the current families (although they will be shuffled around), as well as 10 RETURNING IN COLOURS (Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede, River Rock and Wild Wasabi) and 5 BRAND NEW COLOURS!!!  AND Kraft will be renamed Crumb Cake, and there will be an INK PAD! I have been wishing for a Kraft ink pad for so long!!!!  Okay….go check out the new Colour Collections below!!!  What do you think?

I know I will miss the retiring colours, but the new collection is so fresh….I can’t wait till the new Idea Book & Catalogue comes out!  Remember, this Colour Renovation won’t take effect until July 1st, so the retiring colours will still be around till then!

So, what are your feelings on this upcoming change?  Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts!

Clear Mount Stamps

When I found out Stampin’ Up! was going to start carrying Clear Mount stamps (the same rubber, but they cling to acrylic blocks instead of being glued to wood blocks), I was so excited! I have loved this idea for a while, and even thought of changing my stamps over to cling mount.

I’ve been using the Clear Mount stamps for a couple of months now, and I’m definitely in love! They are so easy to use, and I can see where I’m stamping. Now I only bring out my Stamp-a-ma-Jig if I need absolutely precised placement, which isn’t often.

Stampin’ Up! has made a video to showcase these new stamps. Take a look to learn more!

Have a great day!
