In addition to Sale-a-Bration, a new mini catalog and wonderful new products are available. Especially exciting are Stampin' Up!'s new clear mount stamps. Stampin' Up! has been working on offering clear mounted stamps for many years. However, the acrylic stamps just did not make a crisp enough image for their liking. So the have come up with this exciting, innovative alternative. The stamps are still made of Stampin' Up!'s high quality rubber and foam so as to not lose any crispness or quality of image. Like traditional acrylic stamps, they are temporarily mounted to clear acrylic blocks. Stampin' Up!'s stamp come with stickers to adhere to the backside of the foam to provide more accuracy during stamping. Best of all, these stamps come in cases similar to DVD cases making storage easy! Book a workshop with me today to check out these innovative new stamps!

This Mini is also chock full of great accessories including Satin Ribbon and Designer Series Paper with glitter! And did you see the new punch design? Sleek and easier to handle, this new design provides more leverage for easier punching. It also folds flat for easier storage!

Check out this card made with the new Vintage Vogue set from the Occasions Mini. I purchased this set in the Clear Mount Version (all stamp sets in the Mini are available as Clear Mount or Wood Mount) and although it took me a bit of time to get used to using the acrylic blocks (I'm not good with change and have only ever used wood mounted sets) I have grown to LOVE them! I thought that mounting and remounting would drive me nuts because I'm pretty picky about how my stamps are mounted. But since I can see through the acrylic blocks, stamping straight is a snap, no matter how they're mounted! So how do I decide whether to buy my stamps wood or clear mounted?!?!?! Decisions, decisions, lol!

The card recipe for my Vintage Vogue card is

Stamp Set: Vintage Vogue
Card Stock: Soft Suede, Bordering Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Bordering Blue, Soft Suede
Accessories: Stampin' Sponges, 1/4" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon

And BTW, this card is a little sneak peak of what will be offered at my All Occasions Cards Stamp-a-Stack - book one with me for you and your friends today! I'll also be offering some workshops at my home - Stay tuned!

That's it for today... hope you enjoyed looking at the new products and keep letting stamps bring out your creativity!
