Love you Much Bundle Sample

This is the last day to order the Love You Much Bundle!
Don't forget to take advantage of this opportunity.
This card was made with the Candy Lane designer series paper and the heart is from the Love You Much stamp set. I stamped it in red and then used the aqua painter to blend the color. I love the Scallop Edge punch that is used across the bottom. Add that to Close to Cocoa Cardstock and you are set with a quick and easy card for that special someone.

Stamps: Love You Much

Ink: Real Red

Paper: Close to Cocoa, Candy Lane DSP, Very Vanilla

Other: Aqua Painter, Scallop Edge Punch

Here are the 3x3 cards I made to go with the mini tote. I love this idea as a gift for teachers, friends or co-workers. Designer series paper is a quick and easy way to wow any project.

Mini Tote

I saw this idea on another site and had to try it. It is a mini tote with three 3x3 cards and envelopes inside it. I will post the cards tomorrow for you to see. This was so easy to make using one 12x12 sheet of designer series paper.

Supplies: Upsy Daisy Stamp Set
1 sheet of Urban Garden designer series paper 12x12
Not Quite Navy stamp pad
Silver brads
Baja Breeze 5/8" striped grosgrain ribbon
(All Supplies are Stampin' Up!)

I'm a Beginner

Well, I am trying to branch out of my comfort zone and provide a place to share my love of stamping and scrapping. I hope to keep this updated with stamped samples of projects I have made. Please be patient with me because, as you can see, I am a beginner.

New Clear Mounted Stamps!

These are just some pictures to show off the new clear mounted stamps that Stampin' Up! is now offering in the Occasions Mini catalog! I love the cases! They are like DVD cases and are small and easy to store. I enjoy being able to stamp and knowing exactly where my stamp is on the paper.

Here are some Q & A when using your Clear Mount stamp sets and blocks:
First, clean your clear-mount blocks with soap and water before you use them and dry them well.

Q: Do I need to use the labels on my clear-mount rubber stamps?
A: The labels are designed as a tool, and you can use them or not, as it suits your preference. The stamps are designed to cling to your blocks with or without the label.

Q: How do I apply the labels?
A: Applying the stamp labels is quite simple, and you will find detailed instructions located on the back side of the storage case label. The most important thing to remember is to leave the label on the sheet until you apply it to the stamp. If you remove the label first and then to try to apply it to the stamp, you will be unsuccessful.

Q: Are the labels removable?
A: The labels are not removable. It could damage the foam if you try to remove the label once it has been applied.

Q: Does the cling ever wear away?
A: The cling is a static cling and will not wear out. However, you do need to keep both your blocks and stamps clean in order for the cling to function properly.

Q: Why isn't my clear-mount rubber stamp sticking to the acrylic block?
A: Both the stamps and the blocks need to be clean for the cling to function properly. Clean both your blocks and stamps with Stampin' Mist and try again. Also, if you have applied labels to your stamps, you need to press the stamp to the block with a moderate amount of pressure for a few moments in order for it to cling.

Q: How do I clean clear-mount rubber stamps?
A: You simply use your Stampin' Scrub and a few sprays of Stampin' Mist. Use your Stampin' Mist sparingly--if you get your Stampin' Scrub too wet, the excess liquid can cause your stamp to come off the block, and may also result in some cosmetic damage.

Q: How do I clean the acrylic blocks?
A: Acrylic blocks need to stay clean in order to work well. Stampin' Mist and Stampin' Scrub will clean StazOn, Classic Ink, Craft Ink, VersaMark, and metallic ink stains from your blocks. Avoid using StazOn cleaner, as it leaves a slightly oily residue that inhibits the functionality of the cling.

Keep Stamping,
