NEW-NEW-NEW DEVELOPMENTS AT STAMPIN' UP!!! :)

start thinking.....January 5th.....January 5th.....January 5th!









wHooT-Whooo!
For several past years, there has been an enthusiastic question  from demonstrators and customers alike  - when will SU offer a line of repositionable clear-mount stamps?  We heard you, and now ta-da! Our new "babies" to the SU line.....Clear Block Handles and Repositionable Rubber Stamp Sets - plus our regular Wood Handles ...remain!  Yay!!!


Starting with stamps in the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog and the 2010 Sale-A-Bration Brochure, Stampin′ Up! now offers our exclusive stamp art in both traditional wood-mount, and the new clear-mount option.

When?  Why it all begins January 5th!!!!


Our company's position to hold out till we had the best there is image quality in the stamping industry, AND  offering the ease-of-use and convenient storage in repositionable clear-mount stamps has paid off.....


Clear-Mount Features




  • Nine different sizes of clear blocks available individually or as a discounted bundle.
    Blocks have ergonomic grooves on all four sides for easy grip and traditional wood-mount feel.
  •  Stamps and blocks are durable and easy to clean with your Stampin’ Scrub and Stampin' Mist.
  •  Optional image labels on stamp backs let you decide if you want to see the image through the block or not.
  •  Tight die-cutting for easy image positioning.
  • Large clear blocks can be used to create collages or spell words with alphabet sets.
  • Stamps store easily in standard, DVD-type cases with artwork on front and spine, making organization easy.

SO HOW GREAT IS THAT! BEST OF BOTH WORLDS!!!   I know I will have a hard time knowing which option to go with - as I love both types, so I'll have to figure out some 'system' to my purchases - (such a hard problem to have, giggle)......I love the solid feel of wood - and the best part though, is I prefer rubber - and I don't have to give that up - I can still collect 'rubber' stamps but just not necessarily 'wooden' handles.....then with storage being 'easier' now with the new option - that means I can have twice as many stamp sets! :)



BUT WAIT...THERE'S MORE! 



Introducing Our New PUNCH DESIGN!   dOUble WhOOt!!



If I spoke of new babies to our line of great products - well, then we've had twins!  We now will phase in our "new" punches with a terrific, slimmer body design :)








Here's the scoop from HQ's:
Starting with the new 2010 Occasions Mini Catalogue and continuing with all new punch designs going forward, Stampin' Up! has adopted a new body style for our punches!  {think January 5th!}


 A few features of the new punch style:

  •    Low-profile, rectangular punch body allows for easier stacking and storing
  • Punches lock shut for easier storage and transport
  • Dual labels on top and end allow for easy identification and selection when stored
  • Available in three sizes: small, medium, and extra-large
  • New punches allow for larger punched images and more intricate designs while providing greater ease of use.
  • Extra -large punch images also allow for two-step designs like the Two-Step Bird punch in the Occasions Mini Catalogue
  • Corner punches allow you to punch a corner design along the inside edges of a page, not just corners
  • larger, whole-hand handle design provides better leverage for easier use
  • Available in an exclusive Stampin' Up! color


Part of Stampin' Up!'s commitment to providing demonstrators and customers with the very best crafting tools includes the belief in what we call continuous improvement. Essentially what this means is that even if something works very well, but we see a chance to improve it, we will work to make it even better. While new punch designs will be in the new body style, existing designs will remain in the existing body style for now.
{hey - I'll bring in the latest word every step of the way! wink}
