Your Awesomeness card

Flower PatchHi Stampers! 

Well here is my last swap from Convention! I love how this turned out and this is yet again another new stamp set that I just LOVE! It's called "Flower Patch" #134207 it's a photo polymer set which I'm getting used to using. I love how they are completely see through!

Of course I had to top off this card with Dazzling Diamond glitter and just a little more bling with a couple of Rhinestones in the middle of the flowers just to give it that extra touch!

Enjoy your Saturday stamp something! Thanks for stopping by!

Summer is over and school is back…

Hi Stampers! Well it's back to school for my son! He's not to excited but he's surviving his first week back!  It's already Friday so this week just flew by!

Well I had a super busy summer after Convention. Lot's going on, baseball, camps for my son and a super nice vacation to see my daughter back in Tennessee!  That was fun. Plus I had another project I was working on which you can see HERE!

Now it's time to buckle down and get back to blogging, stamping and sharing it all with you! So many new products to share I just love this new Catalog! 

First up I'm going to share my swap cards and then in the next few days I'll show you some of the awesome swaps I got at Convention and some great highlights!  To see the latest promotions from Stampin' Up! Click HERE!

Welcome Baby

 

This was one of my card swaps for Convention! I just love how this turned out. This color combo just worked together don't you think?

This is a new set called "Something for Baby" #134030 clear mount set. It also has a Framelit set to match!

I just love how Stampin' Up! bundles up the product so you save money!

 

Just for you

 

Next is the "Just for you" card which was another swap and yes another new stamp set!

  The set used here is called "Work of Art" #134111 wood set. You will see me using this set TONS! The possiblities are endless!

Stampin’ Up! Introduces Photopolymer

Stampin' Up! has searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to
introduce completely clear stamping. Yep they found it!  I'm excited
to announce that Stampin' Up! now has 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.

Here is a video showing them in action!

 

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.  Download Flyer_photopolymer_Mar0113_US

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.)

$13.95

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.

Until next time thanks for stopping by and as always…..

Happy Stampin!

Miracles Happen

Before signing off for the evening I wanted to share another swap I got from Leadership. It's from Marlene Salvato. I shared a couple other swaps from her which you can see on this post HERE. I love how Sweet and Simple yet Elegant this card looks!


MSalvato SwapI tried to get the best picture but was having difficulties!

It's Whisper White Background with Whisper White Layer embossed with the new Cloudy Day embossing folder #127022 and Stampin' Up!s New stamp set called Rain or Shine #126-775 (w) or 126-777 (c) which can be found in the Spring Catalog and available til May 31st, 2013.

Well I plan on playing around this weekend! I've got lots of scraps laying around in neat piles and I really need to do something with them. That is one of my resolutions this year.  Use up the images, scraps and what not I've got.  Check back on Sunday to see what I've done!  Thanks for stopping by and as always…

Happy Stampin'
