Stampin’ Up! Die Cutting & Embossing Product Line Changes

return to top of page

Stampin’ Up! is transitioning to a new manufacturer for their dies and embossing folders! One of the significant factors in this decision is that instead of working with a supplier who works with a manufacturer, Stampin' Up! will work directly with the manufacturer. This means that they will work directly with the factories who manufacture their dies and embossing folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories. This gives them greater control and potential in the manufacturing process. This is a great move and I'm so excited about it!

Let's take a look at how this transition will unfold:

Through June 3, 2019 Die and Folder Supply: While Supplies Last and Interruptions
  • Inventory on some retiring dies may be depleted before the end of the 2019 occasions and 2018–2019 annual catalog sales period; Stampin’ Up! will not replenish inventory on any retiring dies and folders that sell out.
  • Inventory on some dies and folders carrying over into the 2019–2020 catalog may be depleted; if this happens, they may go on backorder or may not be available to order until they have replenished the inventory.
April 15–June 3, 2019 Retiring List
  • Our old style die-cutting embossing machine will be on the retiring list while supplies last. This also includes related products such as plates and platforms.
  • Dies and embossing folders included on the retiring list will not be offered in the new catalog in any format.
  • Dies and standard embossing folders NOT included on the retiring list will be carried over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog. We’ll use up our current inventory before starting to ship new style dies, so even if you place an order in 2020, you might receive an old style die or folder.* These are the high-quality products we currently offer, so we’re confident that you’ll be happy with their performance.
Beginning June 4, 2019 2019–2020 Annual Catalog
  • All new dies and embossing folders (denoted with a “New” icon in the catalog) will be produced by our new supplier and made in the new style with a different and high-quality product design.
  • For carryover dies and non-3D embossing folders, we’ll use up our current inventory before starting to ship new style dies, so even if you place an order in 2020, you might receive an old style die or folder.* These are the high-quality products we currently offer, so we’re confident you’ll be happy with their performance.
  • All new and carryover 3D embossing folders will be produced by our new supplier and made in the new style with a different and high-quality product design.
  • Carryover 3D embossing folders (previously named Dynamic) will not be available to order beginning with the catalog launch but we’re in process on getting these ready to go and they’ll be available as soon as possible. We’ll let you know when they are.
  • No die-cutting & embossing machine will be available for purchase from Stampin’ Up! in the 2019–2020 annual catalog.


HIGHLIGHTS: NEW STYLE DIES AND EMBOSSING FOLDERS

Since Stampin’ Up! is using a new supplier for their dies and embossing folders, they’ll be manufactured differently, which means the way you use them will be a little different. A few of the changes between the old style and new style products are listed below. In the future, Stampin’ Up! will also provide videos to show how to craft with the new style dies and embossing folders and better showcase the features described below.

Here are some of the changes you’ll notice with our new style dies and embossing folders:

  • The new style open dies (those that coordinate with stamps) use a high quality metal that’s thinner than before but still as strong and durable.
  • The new style dies have an added lip to the inside of the blades.
  • On old style dies, when you place an open die (dies that coordinate with stamps) over a stamped image, a small border of cardstock is visible around the stamped image. With new style dies, the die hugs the edge of the stamped image. Instead of aligning the die to the space around the stamped image, you will align it to the edges of the stamped image. When the image is cut, there will still be a cardstock border around the image.

Quick Update and Exciting News

Life was quite different for me almost a year ago when I made the very hard decision to leave Stampin' Up! In an effort to be a little more transparent, I would like to share that the reason for leaving was due to circumstances surrounding my husband's health, specifically his heart. It was a scary time. A time that required me to hang on tightly to my faith and to, also, step away from certain things in order to focus on my family.

It's been a long road but I am happy to say that my husband is doing well today. Yes, he has good days and he has bad days but, with the help of some great doctors, he is managing his condition. Praise God! And, as always, we welcome and appreciate any and all prayers!

Moving on... shortly after leaving Stampin' Up! I sold almost all of my precious Stampin' Up! inventory. Not because I wanted to but because we had medical expenses that were not covered entirely by insurance and it became necessary to sell some things. It was both an easy and hard choice to make, but it was the right choice!

And now for some wonderfully exciting news (for me at least)! As I feel my world settling down and bearing some sense of normalcy, I  have decided to come back to Stampin' Up! You have no idea how happy this makes me! I want to thank all of you who have stuck with me this past year! This community is a huge part of why I love Stampin' Up! so much! Thank you!

I am starting from scratch because, as I already mentioned, I sold almost all my Stampin' Up! inventory but I am excited about rebuilding my inventory while, at the same time, bringing you brand new tutorials using some of the most amazing product in the industry! I hope that you will continue to join me on my journey!

It is such a blessing to share my love of crafting with you and to inspire you to transform paper into little works of art.

Now... where is that starter kit? Lol!
