NEW Cling Stamps Video

Have you been curious about Stampin’ Up!’s NEW Cling Stamps?  Learn all about them when you watch this video.  There are currently 27 Cling Stamp sets available in the Occasions Catalog.  Check them out HERE.

This Video is 13 minutes long.

TIPS:
1.  Carefully pull the stamps off with your fingernail or the Take Your Pick Tool under the sticker and gently roll off the stamp block.
2.  Keep the sticky label clean.  You can clean it with water, Stampin’ Mist, or mild dish detergent if needed.
3.  Avoid the following:
~NO Sticky label on cardstock or paper.  Lint fibers will make your sticky label so it won’t be sticky anymore and you won’t be able to clean the lint off the sticky label.
~DO NOT use wipes to clean your stamps or labels.  They also leave lint fibers that destroy the sticky feature.
~NO Alcohol wipes.  The alcohol will damage the sticky labels and the wipes have fibers.
~Use caution when using StayzOn Cleaner on your Rubber stamps as the cleaner can damage the sticky labels.

So, get yourself at least one Cling-Mount Stamp Set today!

Humming Along

1.  Cut your Thick Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  SCORE and fold at 4-1/4″.

~Stamp with Memento ink.
3. Color:
Make sure and lay some grid or scratch paper under your cardstock when using Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Also, make sure the card is open and laying flat so you don’t make marks on the inside of your card.
~Dark Daffodil-Yellow Pollen flower part
~Old Olive-leaves and stems.  Make sure and color the stem inside the flower before coloring the flower.
Flower Petals.  Color one petal at a time for best blending results.
~Dark Rich Razzleberry:  Use the Fine Tip to go over the lines coming from the center of the flower and to draw small circular lines along the flower petal outside edges.
~Light Rich Razzleberry:  Color the whole petal, blending the dark circular lines until you can’t see a line and the color just goes for darker to lighter.
Repeat with each petal.
Humming Bird.  I think they are really brownish.  But I was not in the mood for browns.  Choose the colors you want.  I will tell you what I used.
~Beak: Dark Pumpkin Pie-Thin Tip
~Heat & Body: Dark Flirty Flamingo
~Feathers-Wings and Back: Light Lovely Lipstick and Light Flirty Flamingo.  Color along the lines at one edge with the Lovely Lipstick and blend with the Flirty Flamingo.
