When Stampin' Up! announced their Color Renovation and listed what colors will be retiring at the end of June, they told us that they would honor the orders for retiring colors (ink pads, refills, cardstock, etc) until the end of May. Once the retiring list of stamps and accessories is announced on June 1st, the items will be listed 'as available'.
Just the other day they announced that while the ink pads and refills will still be available until the end of May (they maybe on back order though and will be shipped a little later than expected), the cardstock is in a much higher demand and is SELLING OUT FAST! In order to make sure that we have all the new colors available on July 1st with the new Catalog and Idea Book, they can not guarantee anymore orders for cardstock. If there is a specific color of cardstock that you are hoping for, please, please, please don't wait to place your order. If there is an order placed for a cardstock that Stampin' Up! has run out of, they will substitute the smooth card stock with textured card stock at no additional cost. We will not be notified if the substitution has been made before the order is shipped. When the order arrives there should be a sticker on the pack of textured card stock letting us know that it is a substitute for smooth card stock.
Basically, I want to let you know that in order to make sure you have the best chance of getting the smooth card stock in the color that you want, you should place your orders immediately.
Enjoy your day!!
