Stampin' Up! have new dies! They are thinner, stronger, and more durable than ever before, and I am so excited for you to try them out! And don’t forget Stampin' Up!'s new 3D embossing folders and embossing folder plate. Click HERE to watch the video - get tips on how to incorporate them into your card making adventures, and take your skill to a whole new level.
NOTE: On old-style dies, when you place an open die (dies that coordinate with stamps) over a stamped image, a small border of card stock is visible around the stamped image. With new-style dies, the die hugs the edge of the stamped image. Instead of aligning the die to the space around the stamped image, you will align it to the edges of the stamped image. When the image is cut, there will still be a card stock border around the image.
It's always exciting to see and play with new colours, but not always easy to coordinate them with the existing Stampin' Up! colour families. So, here is a little cheat sheet for you below. There are heaps more colour inspiration idea's on Pinterest page, check them out here.

Did you know that each type of ink is designed for a specific purpose? Your projects will look their best if you use the right ink for your technique. Here's a run down...
Classic Stampin' Ink
Water based, acid free, dries quickly. Use it for general stamping or water colouring - just pick up ink with an Aqua Painter or Blender Pen.
Craft Stampin' Ink
Rich, permanent pigment ink, acid free. Dries slowly so use a Heat Tool to speed up the drying process.
Water based dye ink, acid free, fade resistant, dries quickly. Use it for general stamping or stamping images for no-smear colouring with Stampin' Blends.
Archival permanent ink, acid free, fade resistant, dries quickly. Use for stamping images for water colouring with Aqua Painters, Blender Pens, Water Colour Pencils and Brusho. You can stamp on non-porus surfaces like Window Sheets, Vellum and Cellophane Bags.
Watermark pigment ink, acid free, dries slowly. Use for embossing - stamp, sprinkle with any colour Stampin' Emboss Powder then set with Heat Tool. Use for slightly translucent, tone-on-tone look.
Confused about all the different adhesives on the market? Me too. One size does not fit all, that's why Stampin' Up! offer 8 different types of adhesive each with it's own merit. I'm a big fan of the snail adhesive, which do you use?
