Framed Art – Christmas Style

The great thing about cardmaking is you can use your materials for other things.  Don’t you love making things for your home.  This framed art piece was a recent class I had.  All you need is the basics (stamps, paper, & ink).

6th Swap Card Club – December

I love being apart of the 6th Swap.  I receive fabulous cards from 6 different demonstrators each month.  My card this month is using a technique.

The Black Ice technique and card idea is from Melissa’s Crafting Treehouse   I had so much fun making these cards and trying something new.  I highly recommend it.

CLING Stamps

11-01-18_header_cling_na

Cling stamps were first introduced in Japan beginning with Stampin’ Up!’s  2018-2019 annual catalog. The Cling stamp line has been a smashing success. Stampin’ Up! is excited to offer cling stamps in all other markets beginning with the 2019 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure.

Wood-mount stamp set sales have been steadily declining for several years. Stampin’ Up! research and sales teams took this and several other factors into consideration before discontinuing wood-mount stamps. 

During the transition, be sure to view product details carefully both in publications (each stamp type is identified with an icon) and when placing orders to note the stamp medium.

  • Beginning with the 2019 occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure, all new stamp sets will be available either in cling (for red rubber stamps) or photopolymer.
  • Stamps in the 2018-2019 annual catalog will continue to be available in clear-mount, wood-mount, or photopolymer.
  • Red rubber stamp sets (clear-mount or wood-mount) in the annual catalog that will be carrying over will transition to cling with the 2019-2020 annual catalog. 
  • In 2019-2020 annual catalog, clear-mount and wood-mount stamps* will no longer be available. The only exception is background stamps in North America only, which will still be available in wood-mount.

Labeling cling stamps is a slightly different process than you may be used to. It is important to follow the steps below to assemble cling stamps. Each cling stamp case will also include labeling instructions.

 
Note: Once you place the label on the stamp, it is adhered permanently. Attempting to remove or adjust the label will damage the stamp’s foam.
  • Remove the paper backing from the label.
  • Remove your selected stamp from the rubber sheet and remove the paper backing from the stamp.
  • Line up the foam side of the stamp with the image label, then press it evenly to adhere it to the label. Make sure it is correctly positioned before you adhere it to the stamp.
  • Remove the stamp and its newly-affixed image label from the label sheet.
  • Place the stamp on an acrylic block to begin stamping.

Best Practices

To remove the stamp from the block, grasp securely near the image label and remove slowly. (Cling stamps stick so well that if they are not carefully removed from the block, the foam can tear.) To clean the labels, simply rinse under running water. Avoid alcohol-based cleaners.

Here’s a video which will provide you more information.

Happy Stamping!
