It’s the first day of our brand new annual catalog!
It’s a beautiful catalog cover showcasing the 30th Anniversary of Stampin’ Up!
That’s a lot of stamps, smiles and creativity over 3 decades, isn’t it?
We have new ink and paper colors! We have new stamps of course along with new framelits, ribbons and accessories.
I’ll be ordering my Paper and Ribbon shares first thing today when it opens along with several other goodies! There is still time to get in on my new product shares, see my post here if you missed those.
A customer challenged me the other day to choose 5 things
she needed to add to her first order, so I took the challenge
(although it wasn’t easy to narrow down)!
#1 The Stamparatus
Item #146276 $49
It’s back and here to stay!
I know some of you were able to get it on the pre-order
but many did not and wished they had. This tool makes stamping muliples a breeze and also takes away the oopsies we all get with stamping crooked or not getting the images uniformly inked. If you missed my Stamparatus how-to video series, you can see them
If you purchase from me, I will include a free Silicone pad that I use as a shim if needed for very thin stamps. The Silicone pad is also a must-have for the craft room for resisting hot glue and tape messes!
#2 Big Shot Embossing Mats
Item #146327 $15
If you are on my Stamping School, I used these for 2 videos last week. Basically we have been embossing with our dies for a while now using various shims and work-arounds. Now with this set of two rubbery mats and a platform, it’s super easy to turn your framelits into embossed images instead of just cutting out images. That means all of our favorite framelits can do double duty like an embossing folder !
#3 Graceful Glass 6″ X 6″ Designer Vellum
Item #146344 $11 24 sheets, 2 of each of the 12 designs
This paper….SO much fun to color! You can see each design in the video from SU below. Personally I own the whole suite but really the star of show is the vellum. Get the vellum:)
#4 Really Pretty Trees with coordinating framelits!
Item # 148353 $72.75 for bundle
Every year when the new catalog comes out we look to see if Lovely as a Tree stamp set makes it another year….and it does! While we love that timeless set it was time for it’s companion….Rooted in Nature! It has beautiful images, sentiments and yes, framelits to cut out those trees! It’s a BIG set, 2 stamp sets and the framelits, which makes it pricey but I think so worth it! Fantastic fonts and 3 of the leaf dies emboss your paper, too.
Here is a video from the home office showing the bundle. Try not to be distracted by Jessica saying Macaroon when she means Macaron:)
#5 Simply Shammy
I love this purple thing!
(and it’s my free gift to you if you order $50 or more from me in June!)
I’ve used the blue and yellow auto shammies for years as you know. But now we have our own AND it’s THICK! So I don’t have to layer my blue ones up 3 layers, it’s just one nice hunka foam. Oh, and it fits perfectly in our clear mount stamp cases!
I like to keep it moist and in the stamp case on my table. I just tap off my stamp on scrap paper first and then tap on the shammy. ALL the ink comes off. It’s awesome. It will never look this pretty again but I rinse it out and although stained, it wont’ transfer the ink.
Simply Shammy #147042 Price: $8.00
This reusable stamp cleaning cloth makes stamp cleaning effortless. Just add water, then wipe stamps on the shammy. Durable, thick shammy easily cleans ink from narrow grooves. No lint, no chemicals—just clean! (Ink will stain shammy but won’t transfer to your fingers or other stamps.) With its portable 5″ x 7″ size, it fits neatly in our clear mount stamp case! You still need your Stampin’ Scrub and Stampin’ Mist cleaner for waterproof inks like the old archival or stazon. This shammy is just for our classic, non-waterproof inks in all our colors.
That’s my 5 top picks! I hope you enjoy the new catalog as much as I do! Below are some links to the new product. You may want to visit the Stampin’ Up YouTube Channel to see LOTS of new product videos from the home office! Click HERE to see those!
