On March 1st I told you about this new stamp set debut. Well, my stamps are here and I’ve been playing with ideas for the new Designer Typeset Photopolymer Stamp Set (see it online – 132956) and I LOVE them! I love them so much that I had to make a Video Tutorial for a card, complete with Tips & Tricks for the new stamps, so you can see how much you NEED to try these.

- 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 your stamping creativity?
- We could go on, but we’ll let you try them for yourself.
They are clearly a great choice.

Love this Designer Series Paper pattern? It’s from the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper (SAB – free item – #127540). And when you use the Stampin’ Distress Tool (see it online – 127562) to add texture to the edge of the paper, then you can see both sides at once. No need to pick which side of the paper you like better

Have you seen this little elephant peeking out at you yet from the You’re Amazing stamp set (see it online)?
He’s my favorite image from the 2012-2013 Stampin’ Up! catalog. Last year there was a fun elephant in a hostess-exclusive set, so I’m excited that EVERYONE can get this guy!
And really, what’s more fun than an elephant in a party hat?
The elephant paper is from the World Spectacular Designer Series Paper (see it online) and it’s my new favorite DSP. There are 12 matching patterns in the paper series, and I love every one of them!
Time for confessions… do you find yourself hoarding Designer Series Paper? Are you afraid to cut into a sheet for fear of needing it more at a later date? I totally used to be that way, too.
Here’s my challenge for you… re-create this card, and use ANY DSP you have on hand — just try it. Match your card stock colors to the DSP you choose, but copy the design. Add a greeting (it doesn’t even have to be birthday — maybe try a Christmas card!), then leave me a comment. You can even send me a picture!
Go on – you know you want to try it. It’s a simple card layout, and you’ll love the results AND start to get over your fear of cutting into a piece of DSP
Here are the card dimensions you’ll need:
- Card Base (Whisper White): 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
- Card Front (Island Indigo): 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Scallop Border Strip (Daffodil Delight): 1″ x 5 1/4″, punched
- Designer Series Paper (World Spectacular DSP): 2″ x 5 1/4″
- Banner (Whisper White): 1 1/2″ x 4″, trimmed
While you’re at it with your Designer Series Paper, here are a whole lot MORE ideas from my blog on how to put your DSP to work!
Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

From my first look through the new catalog (the one that came out June 1st), I think the Bootiful Occasions stamp set (see the full set) was the one that jumped out at me. You could say it walked right off the page and onto my stamp shelf!
Here’s a Halloween card that’s fun for birthdays (“Happy Boot day”) or pretty much any occasion. Plus the winter boot in the set is perfect for the coming time of year… best not to think too hard about that coming season… just stock up on stamps
Did you see the gray ribbon on the card? I love that ribbon — it’s tucked away in the Holiday Catalog, but you can see it here online.
Stamps: Bootiful Occasions; Ink: Staz-On Jet Black, Stampin’ Write Markers: Pumpkin Pie & Lucky Limeade; Paper: Pumpkin Pie & Lucky Limeade, Whisper White; Accessories: Big Shot, 1/2″ Striped Satin Ribbon; Spider Web Textured Impressions Folder, 2 1/2″ Circle Punch,
Need a quick birthday idea? Here’s a fun card using the Big Shot for the shape and the background, and a sweet stamp set for the design: Moving Forward (see it online).
The Moving Forward set is a great all-occasion stamp set, plus when you purchase it, Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. To date, Stampin’ Up! has donated well over $1 million to RMHC from the sale of a special stamp set each year.
Ronald even attended the Stampin’ Up! Convention one year to help kick off the sponsorship program!

When you’re 4 (and a half!) and you’re a boy, what’s the first thing to come to mind when you’re making a birthday card for your preschool teacher? Why, the Make A Monster stamp set, of course!
My son loves to stamp with me, and BY FAR his favorite set is Make A Monster (see it online – clear 120606 or wood 118742). He made this card ALL by himself — the only help I gave him was folding the card and trimming the edge. Don’t you love his creativity??
We have this set in Clear Mount, which concerned me a bit. Would he be able to manage putting each stamp on a block to use it? Would stamps get lost in the process of kid creation time?
The answer is that he does GREAT with this set, even with the tiny pieces. One of our solutions for keeping everything together is to keep the big rubber ‘background’ when I mount a set. That way even a 4 year old can easily see if he’s put all the pieces away or if there’s a stray antennae somewhere on the floor.
To make it easy for the pieces to stick to the block, I teach him how to mount the stamps:
- Put the stamp on the table, rubber side down.
- Press the clear block to the back of the stamp and count to 5.
I also cheat just a little — I add a smudge of 2-Way Glue Pen (see it online) to the block, just to give it a little bit of extra sticky. It’s the perfect amount of stick/release for the clear blocks, especially in the winter when dry climates make clear mount stamps tricky.
By the way, be sure to check out our Make A Monster Charm Bracelets from this past summer — they were a huge hit at Summer Scrap Camp for Kids! And not just for boys–the junior high girls LOVED this stamp set, too
Do you love to wish people a happy birthday on Facebook? If you’re looking for a fun way to send special wishes to your friends, here’s an idea using My Digital Studio!
I created this little note to post on a friend’s FB wall. Word art is sooooo popular right now – try using MDS2 to create a fun greeting to share. Here’s how I made this one:
- I started with the “Celebrate Any Day” designer template for a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ card (it’s a Digital Download set that you can download and add to your MDS or MDS2 program – see it online)
- After creating the project, I used “Change Project Size/Type…” under the Edit menu and converted it to a Custom Project that was 3 x 3″.
- The heart embellishment only came in chocolate and green, so I recolored it to match the banner (love that NEW MDS2 feature!)
- I added some drop shadows, a voice bubble and a stamped greeting
- Last, I used the “Share Project” tool to export my creation as a .jpg and then posted it to my friend’s wall! Happy Birthday greetings!!
So next time you want to write a Happy Birthday post, here’s my challenge to you — create it with MDS2 and share your digital love!!
