I'm going to tease you today with one of the items you can order--well, five items: the new 2018-2020 In Color Stamp Pads! I was able to preorder a set and I want to show them to you and let you know about the features. Here they are stacked next to the still current 2017-2019 In Color pads.
The new pads (on the right) stack so neatly one on top of the other, don't they! I love that! That's because they have little holes on the bottom and pegs on the top.
Here's the surface area comparison--there's not much difference there. The difference is in the ink formula. The new pads have a defoamer so you won't get bubbles like sometimes happened with the previous pads.
See that blue strip of color inside the lid of the new pad on the right? Isn't that genius? That way if you have a bunch of pads open, you'll know what color it is BEFORE you stamp. Here's how the labels come--4 different languages, plus the color strip.
That's exciting, right?! But, wait! There's more! Starting tomorrow you can also purchase products from the early release of the Share What You Love Suite! Here's what I already have (but this is NOT everything in the three suites).
So much fun! And I have one more thing to whet your appetite for new product--a card made with some products from the Share What You Love Suite! This card was one of our make and take cards at Stampin' Up's OnStage event earlier this month.
To make this card, we stamped one of the images in Mint Macaron Ink* (it's back) onto a Mint Macaron Card Stock* card base. We added a 3-1/4" by 4-1/4" piece of Vellum Card Stock and a 3" by 4" piece of the gorgeous Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper to the card. Next, we adhered a Pearlized Doily, a 3/4" by 3-1/2" strip of another sheet of the Share What You Love Specialty DSP, and a length of the yummy Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon*.
We stamped a sentiment from the "Love What You Do" stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink and used the 1/2" Circle Punch to notch the corners. We adhered this to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. For a finishing touch we added three Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.
I'll be sharing more cards made with this suite of products the rest of this week, so come on back! I'll have more information on how you can purchase these products tomorrow, too!
*These products are not available in the early release--you'll need to wait until June 1st to order them.
