Occasions 2019 Favourites

Several of the dies / bundles in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue have been popular beyond the expected numbers.  This means that they are unlikely to be available until the end of the catalogue period and may even retire within weeks.

If any of these dies are on your wishlist, you’ll want to make sure you place an order soon.  Click on the product name / bundle name to view in my online store.

The New Stamps in Town

11.01.18_BANNER_CLING_ENGJP

The Occasions Catalogue sees the launch of a new type of stamp.  It’s called ‘cling’ and looks exactly the same as the red rubber type that we currently know as ‘clear’.  There’s a big difference to the stickers for the stamps – a super cling backing that makes these stamps stick!!!  No more leaving the stickers off so they hold to the acrylic blocks better – this is the ultimate in stamp staying power!

 

Check out this video from Stampin’ Up! with tips & tricks for using cling stamps.

 

Labelling 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.

  • 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.

Note: Once you place the label on the stamp, it is adhered permanently.Attempting to remove or adjust the label will damage the foam of the stamp.

To see the mounting advice as a flyer, click here to download.

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.


Over 2019, clear stamp sets will be phased out and replaced with cling for any sets that carryover into the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue.

All stamp sets in the 2019 Occasions catalogue will be offered as a cling stamp set or a photopolymer stamp set – depending on the format they are made in.

Stamp sets will no longer be offered in wood once the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue retires.

I’m so excited for this change.  It’s amazing to be able to have the label on the stamp and have it stick to the block!

To see cling stamps in action, contact me to book a workshop for you & your friends.  I’m available in January & February.

As always, Stampin’ Up! have designed a sensational range of new products.  It was so hard to choose just 3, but here are my top 3 choices for your first order..

  1. Rectangle Stitched Framelits – I cannot love these enough.  They come in 13 different sizes, perfect for lots of different uses and layering options.  Click here to order.
  2. Piece of Cake bundle – with stamp set and Cake Builder Punch.  It was love at first sight for this bundle when I saw Lou Kitzelman showcase it at OnStage in November.  Visit her blog here for lots more samplesClick here to order.
  3. Needlepoint Nook – one of my favourite DSP options from this catalogue.  Another great presentation at OnStage by Liz Gross (see her blog here).  Did you know the DSP was created in stages.  First the concept art team designed the embroidery patterns, then they had them embroidered by a needlework expert, then they photographed them to be the amazing images we see on each sheet of DSP!  Click here to order.

Here’s a quick card I made to show you my favourites in action!

Colouring the flowers on the cake was easy – I just selected the colours in the DSP!
