Stampin Up Products
Hello Everyone, I was going through some Youtube videos and found many demonstrations from a company named Stampin Up. I am wondering if any of you have ever tried their products and how they measure up to companies like WRMK, Craftors Companions, and Hot off the Press. their catalogue seems complete, but i wanted your opinions before i order anything. I am interested in the Scoring pad, Envelope maker, and some of their ink pads. Thanks for any information you can share….and I hope you are all having a loving Father’s day.
If you Happen to see this post on QVC i did place it there too so as to maximize any responses.
Sounds like you are a stampin up representative fishing for customers. Especially posting on both hsn and qvc
Stampin’ Up products are very nice, love their stamp sets/die sets/punches, but as others mentioned they do outsource their punches, dies, machines, etc. Sizzix, EK Success, WRMK are just some I remember.
FWIW, I’d also check eBay and/or xxxxxxxxx too–I’ve found several kits and punches I had wanted there–, lots of old and new products can be purchased for less than the SU website. Some of the sellers there are still SU demostrators so you’ll get a newsletter with discout deals too. Good luck.

Go to Splitcoaststampers website and they have lots of ideas from Stampin Up. You have to sign up, does not cost anything but they have great ideas. Also I go to Pintrest for lots of great ideas. Also HSN has ideas on Pintrest.
I love Stampin’ Up! and used to be a demonstrator. I have a ton of their products.
They seem to outsource most of their punches, envelope makers, etc. They have some exclusive designs in the punches you can only get from them, but they are EK Success, so the same quality.
The envelope makers and such I believe are still made be We R Memory Keepers. They have everything made in black with their logo. However, sometimes they will change little details about a product for the better – so it’s worth comparing the brands closely. I think the scoring tool might be different for their scoring board than the more widely available one. Hard to remember at the moment – but be sure and check. When they do make those changes they are usually awesome. They are particular about details.
Their exclusive stamps, ink pads, etc. are simply to die for! Great cardstock too. I really love how everything coordinates. I HIGHLY recommend the ink pads! Wonderful colors, easy to stamp with, nice design that raises the pad up for easy inking of big stamps, etc.
I placed my first order with them a few days ago. I ordered a card kit and a stamp set. So I cannot attest to the quality…yet. I too have been watching videos. I agree with a previous comment HSN and Michaels sometimes have better deals for similar or the same product. I bought my Cuddlebug direct from Cricut and it was less that $50 on sale. The EXACT same pack up is $90 on HSN.
Speaking of videos…I’ve been watching until my eyes have crossed…looking for stamping ideas that aren’t overly complicated or that need a bazillion die cuts, embossed pieces, ribbons, embellishments, etc. Many are just too girly for me! (…being a guy and all that.) I did find a video using the cutest little stamps…peg stamps at Rubber Tapestry. Just darned cute and you can make stuff all flowery or more manly with leaves and things. I bet they would fly off the shelves if they brought sets to HSN.
Thank you so much for the information. I have been watching many of the youtube videow and you are correct wth the ink pad vibrancy. I too have the WRMK tripple board set and have used it to make boxes for small gifts. I live in San Francisco and was wondering how i would go about attending a demo party..Any ideas. Anyway i appreciate your ansering, Have a great Monday…
Stamping Up products are of good quality but I think you get better deals at HSN.The scoring pad,envelope maker appear to be the same quality. I passed my original one (from Stamping Up) on to a friend and ordered one which was a set with an envelope maker and box maker and bow maker as a set here. Other companies have better quality and more vibrant colored stamp pads. I prefer to work with primary colors and theirs are more muted..Watch for craft days when all kinds of specials and new products are offered. Another note is Stanping Up is one of those companies with demonstrators and parties. Have fun crafting!
