You will see my post for the day and a sample.There will be a link at the end of my post that will take you directly to another blog to see their sample. Our theme is Open House. Here is a sample of what I am talking about.

Isn't it the cutest thing you ever saw?! This is a class that I am offering my customers. At the class, you will make the box and 4 cards to go inside ( paper pattern may vary ).  In addition to making the box and cards, you will get a pattern for the box.

I managed to get some time in my stamp room to create. Check back each day as I post samples I've made. Today's sample uses a new set from the Occasions Mini Catalog. This set comes in either wood mount or the new CLEAR MOUNT. These are not clear stamps. They are designed like our wood mount stamps only they have a static cling on the back so that you can mount them on clear blocks. I love them!

Stamp Set - Vintage Vogue from Occasions Mini Catalog
I used Pretty in Pink and Close to Cocoa cardstock and Ink.
Accessories include the new Satin ribbon from the occasions mini
and the Scallop Trim border punch which is a FREE selection
from the sale-a-bration catalog!!

    Enjoy Your Day!

Clear Mount Stamps and New Punch Design!

 Over the past few years, there has been enormous demand from demonstrators and customers alike for a line of repositionable clear-mount stamps. Well, you asked for it, and now you have it! Starting with stamps in the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog and the 2010 Sale-A-Bration Brochure, Stampin′ Up! now offers our exclusive stamp art in both traditional wood-mount, and the new clear-mount option. The customer sales period begins Jan. 5.

Our new clear-mount stamps are the result of extensive research with the intent to maintain the very best image quality in the stamping industry, while at the same time offering the ease-of-use and storability inherent in repositionable clear-mount stamps.

Clear-Mount Features

• Nine different sizes of clear blocks available individually or as a discounted bundle.

• Blocks have ergonomic grooves on all four sides for easy grip and traditional wood-mount feel.

• Stamps and blocks are durable and easy to clean with your Stampin’ Scrub and Stampin' Mist.

• Optional image labels on stamp backs let you decide if you want to see the image through the block or not.

• Tight die-cutting for easy image positioning.

• Stamps store easily in standard, DVD-type cases with artwork on front and spine, making organization easy.

New Stampin' Up! punches and punch design, clear mount stamps, delicious new ribbon, embellishments and designer series paper are just around the corner!
