What About Cling

Clingstampbanner

Do you ever have stamps that don’t stick to the blocks?  What about Cling Stamps?  They are so much stronger and Stampin’ Up! has some just for you.  Introducing our new Cling Stamps.  You can find them now in the new Occasions Catalog.  

Watch the video below as Natalie gives you the information you need for assembling and caring for your Cling Stamps.

This makes Stampin’ Up!’s classic red rubber stamps 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 in my online store. 

Please feel free to contact me anytime about any of our new products.

Golden Ornament Wrap – 12 Weeks of Christmas Project 12

This golden ornament wrap was created with the All is Bright Designer Series Paper and the Tags & Tidings.  It’s a great holiday wrap and tag combination for the holiday season.  I really love all the paper in the Holiday Catalog this year.  It makes it almost impossible to choose.  So I decided to make a bunch of projects using all the different papers.  Maybe I have a DSP obsession.  Enjoy the last 12 Weeks of Christmas project and Happy Holidays.
