Deer & Penguin Punches Return!
For those of you in the US who have been waiting for these two punches, the Deer Builder and the Penguin Builder arrived at the Stampin’ Up! warehouse and as of yesterday morning are now available again in the online store. Yay!
If you had ordered either (or both) when they were on backorder status awhile ago, your wait is over. And your product is now shipping to you. It’s been a long wait. And your patience has been appreciated. Here is a note from Stampin’ Up! addressing product availability issues and a change occurring soon to help alleviate the stress of waiting…
“As you may have heard reported in the news, unprecedented shipping and logistics issues have resulted in a global supply chain crisis. This is affecting businesses world-wide and Stampin’ Up! is no exception. Due to extreme difficulties caused by these issues, starting December 1, 2021, Stampin’ Up! will no longer take orders for products that are not in stock. In other words, Stampin’ Up! will no longer accept backorders. This change will help to reduce frustrations from unpredictable product availability and allow you to order products that will be delivered right away, rather than products that may not be delivered for months. If you’d ever like to know if a product is available, please check the online store. The online store is a great resource to browse products, determine availability, and place orders for in-stock items. With this change you can start creating without waiting!“
So on that note, here is a card that I made (months ago) and can now share with you.
