It’s All About Cling


It can always be frustrating when your stamp does not stick to the block surface.  It’s been a long time coming, but Stampin’ Up!’s new Cling Stamps are here!  You can find these great stamps in the new Occasions Catalog.  

It will be so much easier to use these Cling Stamps.  I know you will be impressed with them as well. I’ve had the opportunity to try them and it’s such a pleasure to use them.  Just wait til you try them.  I published the video Stampin’ Up! last month announcing the release of these stamps, now you can see their newest video to show you how they are mounted.  Take a look below.

Stampin’ Up!’s classic red rubber stamps are now better than ever!  They are the same quality rubber material that you’ve always loved.  Now they come with an adhesive image label that will cling like crazy to clear blocks (AC p. 206) or Stamparatus plates (AC p. 207) each and every time you use them. So, from now on, our stamps will either be “cling”, or “Photopolymer.” 

Get these and other new products from the Occasions Catalog from my online store.

Learn Calligraphy While You Create

Elegant New Kit

Do you feel like it’s too difficult to learn calligraphy?  Stampin’ Up! may have the answer.  Each year they take great care in creating their project kits throughout the year.  Today I would like to introduce you to the Calligraphy Essentials Project Kit.  It has such soft colors and designs.  I have to admit, I love calligraphy so I was so excited when I saw this particular kit in the new annual catalog.  There is a coordinating stamp set, but more on that later.

Learn Calligraphy

Each kit is always unique and this one is no different.  Create beautiful hand-lettered cards while you learn calligraphy.  The kit makes 16 cards, 4 each of 4 designs.  It includes printed card bases and printed envelopes (which is my favorite thing about the kits).  You get 8 sheets of  labels, calligraphy practice sheets and adhesive-backed sequins.  Everything you need tucked all in one package.  The colors coordinate with some of your favorites and even some new colors – Coastal Cabana, Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick, Pear Pizzazz.  In addition to the Essentials Kit,  you can purchase the Calligraphy Essentials Clear-Mount Stamp Set (seen above) that coordinates with the kit.  Also, together they make the complete Calligraphy Essentials collection.

If you are like me, you want to see it in action.  Well I can help with that too.  Take a look at the video Stampin’ Up! put together which let’s you see the kit up close.  In addition, you can follow Shannon as she uses the products and helps guide you on how to use them.

When you are done practicing with the kit, you will be able to create beautiful calligraphy of your own.  Finally, you can be proud when you finish all the practices sheets.  Maybe even feel like a calligraphy expert.  LOL

Graceful Glass

Perfect for Stampin’ Blends

The Graceful Glass Suite is just one of the new suites in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.  The suite is featured on pages 164 and 165 of the new annual catalog.  As with any suite, you have a bunch of products that make up the complete suite.  Included is a stamp set, the stained glass framelit dies, the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum which I might add is perfect for coloring with your Stampin’ Blends,  However, you can use other coloring options as well. You also get Tinted Faceted Buttons and some black cord.

Graceful Glass: All That’s Included

Below is a video from Stampin’ Up! that puts all the products from this suite in front of you.  There are even some card samples and coloring techniques you can use when creating projects with this suite. 

I hope you have been inspired and will enjoy this suite as much as I do and I look forward to sharing projects and cards with you created using this suite.  The beginning of the Stampin’ Up! year is always an exciting one.
