Stampin Up News

Written and Created by PaperCraftCentral Susan

Stampin Up News lets me have a chance to tell you about some new things that are happening in the Stampin' Up! world. I might talk about specials and things that will be to your advantage, or I might talk about new products and how to use them.

Or maybe there will be some other Stampin Up News that I just have to tell you!

Of course, if you want a monthly email telling you about the official Stampin 'Up! specials coming up, do subscribe to my SusanSalutations mailing list, especially if you live in Australia.

Just Contact Me to be added to the SusanSalutations (for Australian news about Stampin 'Up!) Mailing or the Paper Twists (for news about PaperCraftCentral, world wide!) Mailing.

Once you subscribe, I send you an email every month towards the beginning of the month and you will see all the company specials there.

Just so you know, I'm an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Australia. I am not an official representative of the company but I am a member of the company and can sell their product to you if you live in Australia.

Also, the SusanSalutations email is totally different to my PaperCraftCentral mail out, Paper Twists . There are therefore TWO emails you can sign up for, and I hope you do!

Now let's get on to the latest Stampin Up News.

October Stampin Up News


It's always good Stampin Up news with Christmas just around the corner. This month many people craft for Hallowe'en as well. Check out the Hallowe'en themed products in your seasonal catalogue.

2021-22 Annual Catalogue!

Have you had a chance to browse through your beautiful annual catalogue yet? What is on your Wish List?? I have a lengthy one of those. Lol!

I hope you are enjoying your annual catalogue as much as I am enjoying mine. I love all the products and ideas in the 2021-22 catalogue.

They are always great value and it's good Stampin Up news to have an array of examples at your fingertips.

2021-2022 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue

I love the new In Colors too. Even the names are fun!

Fresh Freesia

Polished Pink

Pale Papaya

Evening Evergreen

Soft Succulent

What are In Colors? (Yes, I know the name is spelled the American way).

Well, they are new on trend colours. These new colours stay in our colour offering for two years.  Introducing new colours every year means the Stampin' Up! shades stay fresh and on-trend with colours showing up in the marketplace.

Usually, I see our fresh In Colours in home decor, on clothing racks and in paint colours everywhere.  

These new colours are available in Stamp Pads, Reinkers, Cardstock, Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Write Markers, Stampin' Blends, ribbons and other accessories. 

One of my favourite features of the Stampin' Up! product line is that the colours coordinate across the product line, which saves you time, reduces frustration in trying to match colours  and gives you a relaxing time when crafting.

I know you want to see them so here are the new 6" x 6" designer series papers in the In Colours:

Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Product Line

In October there's great Stampin Up News!

Creating die cuts and embossed designs is easy, thanks to Stampin’ Cut & Emboss!

The die-cutting and embossing products do the work so you can have the fun. The Stampin’ Cut & Emboss and Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines offer multiple die-cutting and embossing options for you from beginners to seasoned crafters.

Both of the Stampin’ Up!-exclusive machines offer the highest quality and make precise cuts and detailed embossed images every time.

They’re also simple to store and easily portable, which makes packing for your events a cinch!

They come with all the tools needed to get started right away, making it easy to have a fantastic die-cutting and embossing experience from the start.

So what sets our machines apart from the rest? Here are some of our favourite features: 

  • Durable machines with high-quality results. The solid steel construction frame and rubber feet that securely grip the work surface produce crisp, clean, precise cutting and beautifully detailed embossing. 
  • Easy to use. The machines and tools are designed for an intuitive die-cutting and embossing experience. For example, all plates are labelled with a number and are colour-coded for easy reference and use when building your sandwich. And just like the name suggests, the Magnetic Cutting Plates have fully-magnetic surfaces to make it easy to securely position your dies and keep them in place. 
  • Simple to store. The platforms on both machines fold for space-saving storage and they look pretty too–the sleek, clean design suits any crafting space. 
  • Portable. You can use both machines at home or on the go with their folding platforms and ergonomic carrying handles. This makes it easy to attend crops or other crafting get togethers.

Stampin Cut and Emboss Machine

It just might be time to replace your older die cutting and embossing machine, right? The new machines mean good Stampin Up News as you can replace your old machine with a strong and beautiful new Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine!

Woo hoo! Now that's some handy Stampin Up News!

Featured Bundle On My Wishlist

Frosted Gingerbread Bundle  - Item no 156807

Send peppermint kisses and gingerbread hugs with the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle. The bundle includes the Frosted Gingerbread Stamp Set and the Gingerbread Dies. Use the dies to cut out the stamped images for quick accents. Mix and match the die-cut images with the stamp set to “bake” up batches and batches of paper cookies.

This set features large ornament and snowflake shapes. Stamp them in brown ink on white cardstock to look like intricately iced gingerbread cookies. Or you can stamp them in other colours to look like elegant ornaments. The sentiments look like they were penned by a skilled baker with a piping bag and will look right at home with your cookie confections. Use the peppermint pieces to adorn your cookies. You can stamp the long image multiple times to create a border or background. Emboss the image with white embossing powder to look like raised icing details.
* 11 photopolymer stamps
* Suggested clear blocks (sold separately): a, b, c, d, i

Cut out cookie confections using the Gingerbread Dies. The dies include outline pieces to create cookie bases and overlay pieces that look like piped icing. The set also includes several sizes of circles and swirls to create paper peppermints. The border piece can be used on a full card front or trimmed down for smaller iced elements. Mix and match the die-cut images to create cookies for all your Christmas projects. If you’re not feeling like cookies, cut images out of colour cardstock to create traditional ornaments for snowflakes for your projects.
* 20 dies
* Largest die: 6-1/4" x 1/4" (15.9 x 6.4 cm)
* Use with a Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
* Compatible with the Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine

Dies help you create unique die-cut shapes and paper cut outs with just a quick run through your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Detailed dies include ejection holes so you can remove the paper easily.

Frosted Gingerbread Bundle

This cute bundle is on its way to me now! I want to experiment with stamping on Crumb Cake cardstock and heat embossing details in white embossing powder.
