Hi & Welcome to my Blog! I became a Stampin' Up Demonstrator in April of 2009 and started this blog to share our great products and some of my creative projects. Card making is my passion, so I hope I inspire you to make it yours!
Happy New Year Everyone! Hopefully you all had a great time ringing in the new year whether it was safely at home or out with friends and family. We stayed low key at home and made it till midnight...so, it was a success!
My first post of the new year puts polka dots center stage...and, they should be! I had seen this stamp set on many blogs and just had to have it. Let's call it a gift to myself ;) It's an acrylic set and I wanted to try it out.
Although SU! doesn't carry acrylic stamps, they are introducing clear mount stamps in the new Occasions Mini Catalog starting Jan 5th. SU! will still sell the wood mount stamps, but these are a nice alternative. The stamps themselves are still rubber, but you will be able to mount them on clear blocks. This is especially useful for two-step stamping or trying to line up stamps in a particular spot as you can see through the block onto your paper. Not to mention, they are stored in a DVD style case, which saves on space in your craft room.
