June Pals Blog Hop

My project features a new stamp set and 3 of the new In-Colors.  The stamp set, Simply Sketched, is a hostess set and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it!  I chose to use the “With Heartfelt Sympathy” sentiment because of my need for a sympathy card, but the card would work equally as well with either of the 3 sentiments in the set.

While we talking about love at first sight, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new 2013-2015 In-Colors.  Many times I have to ‘warm up’ to new colors but not this year.  I actually got to see the new colors before they were released when I attended a Stampin’ Up! Regional Conference in April.  I couldn’t wait to get my hands on these new colors and start creating.  I chose to use Baked Brown Sugar for my base layer; I embossed half of this layer with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe blend perfectly to create a soft color palette.  I created the flags using the background stamp from “Oh Hello” and the 1″ square punch.  I scored the Crisp Cantaloupe flag using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to create some texture and dimension.

Baltimore or Bust

Oh my goodness!  I had SUCH A GOOD TIME at the Baltimore Regional Stampin’ Up! event on  Saturday I’m still on a high.  The makes & takes, the WOW demos, the Prize Patrol, the swaps.  It was all good!

I’ve posted some pics on my Facebook page (had trouble posting from the convention center but all the pics are up now) so “LIKE” me on Facebook if you haven’t already.

I’ll be posting pics of the swaps  in the coming days AND I’ll be teaching some of the new techniques I learned during the event.  Why don’t you join me, I have a class scheduled April 25th so if you are nearby, join me.  Or host a workshop of your own.

Our new annual catalog goes live May 31, 2013.  I can’t share with you (yet) all the new products that will be introduced in the new catalog but I can tell you, you won’t want to miss it!  So book a party with now beginning May 31st and be the first one on your block to host a Stampin’ Up! new catalog party!  You’re friends will be green with envy!

I can share the new Color Refresh with you now.  Stock up on your favorite retiring colors before they are gone. Colors that have been announced as retiring will only be available while supplies last.  And Not Quite Navy cardstock has already sold out!

Well off to bed for me; to dream of new colors!  They are dreamy!

Clearly New Stamps Are Here!

Photopolymer Stamps are here!

What is photopolymer you ask?  Watch this video and find out!

We’ve searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And we’ve found it. We’re excited to announce that we now have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps! The new photopolymer will be an addition to our stamp line and will appeal to all types of stampers. Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let’s just say they’re meant for each other! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options.

What makes them so great?

  • They’re entirely transparent for perfect placement every time!
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last.
  • Can you say sticky? (Don’t worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They’re age tested. They won’t yellow or cloud up over time.
  • They use FDA, food-safe material. How far can you stretch your stamping creativity?
  • We could go on, but we’ll let you try them for yourself.

They are clearly a great choice.
