I’m having my Stampin’ Up! open house on July 11, from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Come join us! These are the invitations (on left) that I made for it. After making 10 of them, I ended up changing the date. So, I had some of the old ones laying on my craft table and got inspired to make it into a card. I was so pleased with it that as I pass the invitations out, I tell my guests that if they bring their invitation with them, we will turn it into a card.

All supplies used are from Stampin’ Up! Stamp set: Secret Garden, card stock: Whisper White & Costal Cabana, Inks: Costal Cabana & Pistachio Pudding.

Photopolymer Stamps

What are Photopolymer stamps? Well, we’ve searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And we’ve found it. We’re excited to announce that we now have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps! The new photopolymer will be an addition to our stamp line and will appeal to all types of stampers. Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let’s just say they’re meant for each other!

Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options. What makes them so great?

  • They’re entirely transparent for perfect placement every time!
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last.
  • Can you say sticky? (Don’t worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They’re age tested. They won’t yellow or cloud up over time.
  • They use FDA, food-safe material. How far can you stretch your stamping creativity?
  • We could go on, but we’ll let you try them for yourself.

Stand Alone Cards

These cards were made using the beautiful new “In Colors” from Stampin’ Up! (Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush & Costal Cabana) This was a fun card to make and I will be demonstrating it at a future stamp camp. The card folds flat for mailing and fits a standard card size envelope.



The stamp set used was “Field Flowers.” This set is so versatile. You will be seeing many more samples with it, as it is my current favorite set.
