Hey Love Narrow Notecards for Valentine’s Day!

I love Valentine’s Day crafting! I have two boys and each year they need Valentines cards for their classmates. As soon as I saw this stamp set in the Occasions Catalog, I knew it was perfect for their class Valentines this year! So today, I put these together as samples. I LOVE the way they came out!

Check out the full stamp set below:

Seriously, how cute is this set?

Each of these cards used the same basic supplies. The card bases are the Whisper White Narrow Notecards & Envelopes. Each one measures 2-1/2 x 4-1/2 inches in size, and comes in a pack of 20 cards with 20 envelopes! Perfect for cute little notes for loved ones!

Here’s a close up of each card:

Basic measurements for each of the cards are as follows:

Narrow Notecard base (pre cut/pre-scored at 2-1/2 inches): 5 x 4-1/2 inches

DSP background layers: 2-1/4 x 4-1/4 inches

Vellum scalloped circle layer*: 2-3/4 inches in diameter

Whisper White Circle for each animal*: 2 inches in diameter

Sentiment pieces and embellishments vary by card.

*The pieces used on the crocodile are slightly larger!

I hope you like these cards as much as I do! Thanks for stopping by!


A Big Change is Coming January 3rd!

Starting January 3rd, 2019, Stampin’ Up! will no longer sell red rubber stamps in a choice of wood mount or clear mount.  There will only be ONE option for red rubber stamps, and it will be a new and improved stamp called “cling” stamps!  These new cling stamps are new and improved clear mount stamps, with a new stamp decal that is sticky and clings amazingly well to clear stamping blocks!  I had a chance to use some of them at OnStage last week, and they are fantastic!  I love them already, and I am sure you will too!

So what does this mean exactly?  It means that beginning January 3rd, wood mount stamp sets will no longer be available.  There are two exceptions to this: large background stamps, and any stamp sets in the Annual Catalog that are currently offered in wood mount.  Moving forward, however, any NEW red rubber stamp sets produced will come only in the cling option!

Here’s a short and fun video demonstrating some features of the new cling stamps:

New stamp labels have been in the works for the last few years.  I absolutely love the clear mount stamps, but I don’t like how they don’t always stay on the block!  The new cling stamps will NOT come off your blocks!  Here’s a sneak peek at the instructions:

There will be lots more info on the new stamps as we get closer to their release!  In the meantime, please feel free to ask questions!

Thanks for checking in today!
