Purple Posy and Delicata Ink Updates from Stampin’ Up!

Purple Posy Ink To Be Discontinued

Despite our efforts to resolve issues with Purple Posy ink, we have learned that the ink colour is still shifting over time. This means that the colour is coordinating more loosely than we typically allow with our colours. Due to these ongoing challenges, we have decided to discontinue Purple Posy classic ink. After 6 November 2019, the following items will no longer be available to purchase:

  • Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 150084)
  • Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill (item 150091)
  • 2019–2021 In Color Classic Stampin’ Pad Assortment (item 150087)

However we have other Purple Posy items that are still available 

All of Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive ink colours are run through a vigorous series of tests to get ahead of challenges like this, and to ensure colours are accurate and meet our standards of coordination. Purple Posy did pass regular testing standards in time-simulating ovens, but we have now identified that it fell short when it came to actual time passing. The colour begins to shift once the ink has rested in the ink pad for about six weeks.

It is rare for Stampin’ Up! or our ink manufacturer to have such persistent issues with ink; Purple Posy has certainly been an anomaly. We completed full testing on 11 distinct batches of Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Ink before releasing the current version. We are now confident that no additional efforts would uphold our coordination needs over time. We appreciate your patience as we have worked through this manufacturing difficulty and regret that we are unable to share better news.

Delicata® Ink Pads and Refills Available While Supplies Last

We have received shipments of Delicata ink pads and refills (see item list below), and they will be available to purchase before the end for the 2019 holiday catalogue sales period (2 January 2020).

  • Celestial Copper Ink Pad (item 150707)
  • Celestial Copper Ink Refill (item 150708)
  • Golden Glitz Ink Pad (item 150711)
  • Golden Glitz Ink Refill (item 150712)
  • Silvery Shimmer Ink Pad (item 150709)
  • Silvery Shimmer Ink Refill (item 150710)

Due to amount of time it takes to receive shipments of these items, they will not be carrying over into the 2020 occasions catalogue. Additionally, when inventory for each item is depleted, that item will be turned off.

Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop – Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek

Hello Stamping Friends,

It’s great to have you visiting me today at Stamping Flair. I’m so excited to be participating in the Stampin’ Dreams blog hop and to be able to share with you a sneak peek from the brand new Holiday Catalogue.

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop July Designer Series Paper

With so many products to choose from, it was really hard to work out what I wanted to highlight today. I have chosen the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley to feature in my projects. 

Christmas card with Most Wonderful Time of the Year Product Medley

This Product Medley is a bunch of beautiful products in a box and when I opened it, it was like a Christmas present. There are so many things in the box. Here’s what you get. 

  • 48 sheets 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper (8 sheets of 6 double sided designs)
  • 12 gold foil card fronts (4 each of 3 designs)
  • 7 sticker sheets
  • 9.1m gold/white tinsel trim
  • 58 adhesive-backed gold faceted stars
  • 6 dies
  • 11 piece stamp set

So you can make a LOT of cards with this Product Medley. 

The tree has been stamped with the new Delicata Golden Glitz Metallic ink. This ink range also comes in Silvery Shimmer and Celestial Copper. These inks are beautiful and I love the metallic look of them. The tree is stamped on Shimmery White cardstock. I then inked up a clear block with Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive and used an aqua painter to pick up the colour for the tree. 

Ice Glitter on Christmas tree, Holiday Catalogue 2019

Then I poured Ice Stampin’ Glitter over the tree by applying liquid glue in the areas I wanted covered with glitter and poured the glitter over. 

To coordinate with the card I also made this cute mini Curvy Keepsake box. It’s a die that cuts this out in one piece and it is so easy to assemble. What a cute little package to give with this card at Christmas. I embellished it with the ribbon and sticker from the Product Medley.
