Coloring Down The Lines Blog Hop - Baja Breeze & Unscripted Sketches

Hello Friends!

Thank you for hopping over from Joni's blog.  I have not had a chance to see her creation, but I am sure she did an awesome job.  Now, if you started here on my blog and you want to continue on the hop, not to worry - I will get you back on track since I am the last blog.

Our colors we were to use is Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy.  I would not use these colors together normally but that is why we are doing these color challenges so that we can get out of our comfort zones as far as colors go.

Also, I got my inspiration from the sketch challenge over on Unscripted Sketches.  They always have some really neat sketches.  If you have not tried them yet, please go over and give them a try.  Here is the sketch I got to play with:

Coloring Down The Lines Blog Hop - Garden Green

Hello Friends!

Happy First Day of Spring!   Even though the thermometer does not really say warmer temps, it just feels good to know that warmer weather is coming soon.  Last Saturday, we had temps in the lower 70's.  This coming weekend, our forecasters are saying wintery mix.  Old man winter just won't go away.

Thank you for hopping over from Sandy's blog.  She really created a beautifully elegant card - I love it, Sandy!

If you are starting here on the blog hop, I am going to disappoint you with no creation today.  I am having camera issues again. 

To continue on our blog hop today, please be sure to go to Robbie's blog. I love her technique and the way she used the challenge over on Red Hot Stampers.

Thank you for stopping by today for a visit.  Please come back again soon.

Until then...

Photopolymer Stamps Updates
 
Here are a few updates we wanted to let you know about:
  • We're thrilled that so many of you are loving our new photopolymer stamp set, Designer Type (item 132956).  We've seen an even bigger interest in this stamp set than we expected.  If the demand stays high, our stock of this set may become depleted.  We do have more on the way and if any backorders occur they will be filled the week of March 25, 2013.
  • We had mistakenly announced that the photopolymer stamps are FDA approved.  It has now come to our attention that this is not the case.  Because of this, we do not recommend that you use these with food.  While there is no reason to believe that use of photopolymer stamps with food will cause harm, there is not an FDA approval in place.
  • We've created a new PDF with questions and answers for your reference.
 
 
I have my Sassy Stampers Club meeting tomorrow.  Stay tuned to see what they make!

I don't know about you, but I am doing the happy dance right now - we didn't get any snow.  However, it is flurrying right now.

Thank you for hopping over here from Sandy's blog.  I just love the different textures on her clover. She is just bursting with creative talent. If you are starting here on my blog, not to worry, I will get you back on track since I am the last on the list.

Today we are showcasing Certainly Celery and Old Olive.  These two colors compliment each other nicely especially to make a St. Patrick's Day card or project.  Here is what I came up with:



This card literally took me 5 minutes to make.  It is very clean and simple.  This card will be good to make if you have to make several and you do not have to have a lot of supplies either.

Photopolymer Stamps by Stampin' Up!




 Hello Friends!

Stampin' Up! has searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping.  And, they'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 you stamping creativity?
  • We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.
They are clearly a great choice.

Item #  132956     Designer Typeset Photopolymer Stamp Set     Price:  $13.95

Includes 57 pieces.  (Don't faint!  This is a good overwhelming feeling.)

The Fine Print
  • Photopolymer stamps will be offered on a trial basis.  Based on popularity, we hope to release more photopolymer stamp sets over the coming months.  At this time, we don't plan on offering a line of photopolymer sets as expansive as our wood-mount and clear- mount lines.
  • Available beginning on March 1, 2013.
  • Not available in wood-mount and clear-mount.
  • All photopolymer will be packaged in cello bag with insert, but don't forget you can store them in our clear cases.
I have a flyer for you.  Click here to see and print.

Be sure to watch this informative (and hilarious) video of some of the staff at the home office in Utah.
