Stampin' Up! Retirement Product List by Tammy Fite

The retirement lists are available now. That means select products from the Occasions Catalog and Annual Catalog are retiring—and this is your last chance to get them! Check out all the details.


Just announced, our colors are evolving! Stampin' Up! makes a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When we see changes happening, we review our color spectrum to ensure they remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings me to the 2018 Color Revamp! In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colors, Stampin' Up! will be retiring thirteen colors plus the 2016-2018 In Colors.

Retiring Colors: Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Elegant Eggplant, Island Indigo, Marina Mist, Perfect Plum, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi, Wisteria Wonder

Retiring In Colors: Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Peekaboo Peach, and Sweet Sugar Plum. Flirty Flamingo is returning!

I'll be sending out more details later on the exciting Color Revamp. I just wanted you to be informed when you saw more colors than expected on the retirement list.

Happy Stamping,

January is time to stamp. It's time to start fresh and finish those projects you put off during the holiday season. If you're like most of us, you have lots to stamp and scrap and Stampin' Up! is right here to help you.

Stampin' Up! gives you a wonderful reason to celebrate this winter. It's Sale-A-Bration time! January is a great time to host a party.

Host a qualifying party ($250) during Sale-A-Bration and earn $25 more in Stampin' Rewards in addition to the usual rewards. Everyone will want to come to your party since we will have tons of fun and we are giving away free Sale-a-Bration products.

During our annual Sale-A-Bration event, we love FREE. In fact, we love free so much we give you three different ways to earn free products: shop, join, and host.

Can you believe it's December already? I just love the holiday season, but it's easy to let it run away with all our time. To help you get your Christmas list checked off quickly and easily I've included a sweet gift tutorial and some no-fuss gift giving ideas.

One of my favorite gifts to give is Paper Pumpkin. It's creative, unique, great for everyone from pre-teens on up, one-size-does-actually-fit-all, it's delivered for you, and you can get pre-paid gift certificates from 1 month to 1 year, so it fits any budget, awesome!

Kits make great gifts, too. The Soft Sayings Card Kit (#145466) and Oh Happy Day Card Kit (#142725) include coordinating stamp sets and are ideal for a stamper who has some stamping supplies, but not a lot of time to design. The Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project Kit (#146013) and coordinating Hello Friend stamp set (#144055/#144059) are a creative option for the more advanced stamper.

You've been good this year. Help Santa out with a Wish List so he doesn't have to guess what you'd like in your stocking. Santa will appreciate the tips.

When you shop with me you support my small business, which I truly appreciate, you get unique creative gifts, and you don't have to fight any grumpy shopping crowds. It's a true win-win!

Here is a quick gift giving project tutorial I sent to my email subscribers.

Happy Stamping,


Cheer to the Years!

We're having a Shoebox Swap with my group, the Nacho Average Stampers, this Friday night!  I'm so excited to see these ladies again!  It's always a night filled with laughter and friendship -- I am truly blessed to have them in my life.

Here's the card I designed for the swap -- I adore snowflakes, and when I saw the Cheer to the Years stamp set, I just had to have it!  It's a great set that can be used all year round -- Christmas, New Year's and Anniversary, Wedding, etc!

I created a fun Christmas card with not-so-traditional colors.  This is one of my favorite color combinations:  Real Red, Marina Mist and Crumb Cake.
Here are the measurements and instructions:


  • Marina Mist: 5 ½”x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”;  1” x 3 ¾”
  • Real Red: 3 7/8” x 5 1/8”;  3/8” x 4 ¼”
  • Crumb Cake: 3 ¾” x 5”;  scrap for punched sentiment            


  1. Stamp the large snowflake randomly over your Crumb Cake panel, using Marina Mist ink.
  2. Stamp the small snowflake in the empty spaces, using Real Red ink.
  3. Stamp sentiment in Real Red ink. Punch out using the Pretty Label Punch.
  4. Add some large snowflakes in Marina Mist Ink.
  5. Sponge edges of label -- this is an easy way to create a “layered” look, and makes the punched piece stand out against the background.
  6. Cut banner tails in your strips of Real Red and Marina Mist.
  7. Assemble your card as shown. Stampin’ Dimensionals were used behind the punched sentiment.
