Clear Stamps!!! Wow, Can't wait to try these!!

Photopolymer Stamps

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?  
  • They're flexible too!
  • We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.
They are clearly a great choice.
Item Description Price
132956 Designer Typeset Photopolymer Stamp Set
Recommend clear blocks A, B, G, F, and I. Purchase separately.
Includes 57 pieces. (Don't faint! This is a good overwhelming feeling.)

The Fine Print
  • Photopolymer stamps will be offered on a trial basis. Based on popularity, we hope to release more photopolymer stamp sets over the coming months. At this time we don't plan on offering a line of photopolymer sets as expansive as our wood-mount and clear-mount lines.
  • Available on all order types beginning March 1, 2013. 
  • Not available in wood-mount or clear-mount.  
  • All photopolymer will be packaged in cello bag w/insert, but don't forget you can store them in our clear cases.photopolymer-03

NEW Product Review

Hey my Stampin Peeps!!
Stampin' Up came out with a new Stampin' Pierce Mat (126199) $4.95.  I loved the idea of having something large to pierce with, but what I didn't realize was what a difference it would make with my stamped images. (If you own the old Mat Pack, you're going to LOVE these enhanced tools)  Place your paper on the pad before you stamp and your images come out so clean.  Less "edges" and dark spots.  Also available is a brand new Paper Piercing Tool (126189) $3.95.  The silicone handle stops it from slipping in your hand (great in this humid weather)!  The NEW Essentials Paper Piercing Pack (126187)  $7.95 gives you templates for punches, edgelits, and framelits as well as freehand punching and an awesome circle to add to circle punches or round images. (think bubbles or hand stitching!)
AND...the best use yet...the mat acts as a stand-in mouse pad for my wireless mouse!! I've never had luck making my mouse function on my stampin table (maybe the texture on the table??)  It's perfect though, large enough that my wrist sits nicely on it and still plenty of room to move my mouse where ever I need it.
If you'd like to add some of these awesome, versatile products to your tool collection, just click the "shop now" button.
Watch my blog for my next Stamp Camp...Razzleberry Wonder!!!
Till then~

Lisa J is in the spot light!!

Not only is Lisa a very talented stamper, but she is also my newest Inky Babe!  I am so thrilled that she took advantage of the new $99 kit and is now on my growing TEAM!!!
Lisa will remain a hobby stamper for now but who knows what the future holds for her?  Someday Stampin' Up might just be what she is looking to do for her full-time job!  Until then, check out this spring pop card she made.

Lisa's Spring Pop card
Isn't this just ADORABLE?  
This month's clubs will be focusing on "POP" cards.  If you'd like to learn how to make these why not join us on either the 2nd or 3rd Sat of the month?  There is always room for a friend (or two) and currently I have 3 open club spots.  Contact me today for more details!
Until then~

Guest Stamper Michelle

Hello all,
Wait till you see what one of my club girls, Michelle, created for Father's day!  This gal is just amazingly talented and makes us all green with envy!  I think you will agree that her talents are simply amazing.  

 This is the true to life wallet she created using DSP (not Stampin' Up but it's ok, I'll forgive her)
 This inside view shows the pockets (yes they each work) and the license holder that does allow you to slip it right in!
Here's the outside view!

 This is her Father's day card...keep in mind that ALL details are FREE hand cut!!
She personalized this by adding his name to the back of the jersey.  The inside opened to hold a gift card!

Impressed yet?
This paper pieced beauty is just amazing in person, pic does NOT do it justice!  She covered the Lightening Maqueen image with Liquid Crystal to give it a glossy finish!  I think this one is for her nephew...sure to impress!

I just love the colors on this card.  Cherry cobbler, Basic Grey and Basic Black a great combination for a clean and simple card!

Hope you enjoyed these as much as I have...if you are looking to get into a fun-filled hobby, why not join one of my stamping clubs?  I have 3 open spots and would Love to have YOU join us!
Happy Stampin~
