Stampin Up Rubber Stamps, Ink and Cardstock Make Paper Crafting easier

Ink pads and pens are essential products to have in your crafting stash if you enjoy rubber stamping or wish to add
color to your stamped images.
Ink pads and pens are available in every color under the sun and in a variety of finishes, making them a versatile choice; just add a little creativity and imagination to bring them to life on your scrapbook pages, handmade cards and papercraft projects.
Stampin Up carries 48 matching colors

they match with our cardstock as well as with our brads and buttons.100_4714.JPG
Dry embossing is the term used to describe the raised effect in paper or light cardstock which is achieved using a brass or plastic stencil and an embossing stylus. CJSketchchallenge007.JPG.jpeg

It's fun and EASY

Heat embossing is an entirely different technique and uses special powders applied to wet ink which are then gently heated using a heat tool until they melt. Once the molten powder cools it forms a raised surface.
Stamp Assembly
Trim rubber close to image. Make straight cuts.
Match rubber to correct blocks. Trim and apply labels.
Apply rubber, matching position of rubber with label.
Apply label with stamp set name to the end of the box.

Many of our stamp sets are now die cut to make it even easier and faster to start stamping. For die cut stamp sets, you'll still get to place the images however you like on the block, you just won't need to cut the rubber for these sets. Look for the die cut logo, which indicates whether the set is die cut.
Clear-Mount Rubber Stamp 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.
$2 for every stamp set sold goes to Haiti!

Have a creative day,
