Around the Corner Stamp Set is a new set in this year’s Annual Catalog. It can be found on page 40 of the catalog and is perfect for using the new Stamparatus for perfect stamp placement. I used it to place the corner sentiment and position the little party hats. There are a couple of corner sentiments and designs in this set, it’s really a cute stamp set! I used Stamparatus to position Happy Birthday from Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set.
I wanted to use the new Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper. I thought the black, white and gold foil would really stand out with the bright red of new Poppy Parade Classic Stamp Pad. But as you can see it is very juicy. When I used the Stamparatus a second time to create a better Hapoy Birthday image there was too much ink on the Y in Birthday! So, as I mentioned yesterday, not all projects turn out perfectly! Have fun anyway. Regardless, I love using the Stamparatus for positioning stamps. (I should do a Facebook Live to show you how it works!)
I also realized when I saw the post in email, for those of you who get the email update when I add a new post, that the email includes all the posts since the last one. That is why you saw two. So I guess I will leave the post on until I can figure out a better way. Thanks for opening and reading the post, I appreciate your interest in stamping!

One more week of Sale-a-bration – it amazes me that we are at the end of March. It is also Holy Week and we are preparing for Easter on April 1. I may only get one more post in this week, due to business travel, so I thought I better send a reminder that Sale-a-bration will be ending next Saturday and that means this is your last chance to select FREE product with your order of at least $50. If nothing else, I would at least place one order to replenish cardstock or ink and select the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper. It is so pretty!
Visit my site to view the items you can order as FREE items for every $50 or $100 and place your order this week! Click here, then select any product line and click until you get to the complete set of links on the left side and you will see Sale-a-bration at the top to view all the options you can select as free items with your order.
I posted on my Facebook page today that you won’t be able to order Stampin’ Blends. Stampin’ Up! took them off the order list because certain items were starting to back order due to popularity of our Stampin’ Blends and they didn’t want to create a frustrating situation for those ordering. I hope the inventory will be restored soon and the awesome blends back in stock! As I mentioned on Facebook, I have purchased some other blender pens and markers, and the ease of use and look of the Stampin’ Blends is superior!
As Holy Week begins today, I started some Easter Card designs. I love the Hold On To Hope stamp set/bundle. I used Stampin’ Up! Gold Foil Paper for the cross in the middle. I saw this design on Pinterest and changed the flowers and sentiment a bit.
The little lamb is a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp but so cute I had to use him for a card. I used current Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper for the background and colored him with Stampin’ Blends.
My Stamparatus reservation was filled and was available for me to close the order and ship this week. I have been playing with it, it takes some practice. I find that the red rubber (clear) stamps work the best for me. I am not getting clear images with the photopolymer stamps yet but the good thing is that the stamp goes to the exact same place on the cardstock so I can reink and stamp again. My favorite use so far is getting the stamps lined up perfectly and stamping exactly where I want it! I added an image below, The two stamps are on the Stamparatus plate and the cardstock with the inked sentiment is on the foam bottom of the tool. This is the inside of the Hold On To Hope card with the crosses that I posted above.
As I mentioned I might try to post during the week if I am able. I will be posting more again in April and May as we close out the Occasions Catalog and 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.
