We have come out with some amazing new Acetate Foil Transfer sheets. These toner-printed sheets are simple to use with your favorite color and patterns of DECO Transfer foils and a laminating machine. The foil is placed on top of the “dull” printed side of the sheet with the foil sitting shiny side up, placed in a carrier sheet, and inserted into the laminator.
Once foiled, the crystal clear sheets can be layered onto printed or colored cardstock to enhance your backgrounds. They are also perfect for making beautiful shaker cards.
Tip: These are to be used with Transfer foil and a laminator. And don’t forget to foil your sentiment strips while you’re at it.
Oh boy… another beautiful set of Pawsitively Saturated inks has been released. They are Mist, Dew, and Raindrop. They are rich and luscious green/blue tones in gradients of intensity. Use them to stamp your favorite bold images or blend through stencils for stunning backgrounds.
You can purchase our inks in several ways, such as individually, with and without re-inkers, and in sets of three.
Tip: Our Mist Sequins Mix coordinates PERFECTLY with all the inks.
With the introduction of our new inks for 2023 and 2024, I needed a way to store them. I found the Spectrum Noir Ink Pad Storage Trays in our store to be a great solution! These trays stack easily and come with 6 layers, which hold 3 pads each. They can also connect side by side with sliding slots so you can build your own custom towers.
I also found them super helpful to use for Tim Holtz Distress inks. A raised bump keeps the square pads from sliding to the back of each slot.
BETTER WAYS TO SHOP
We are always looking at ways to do things better. In years past, when you purchased a Simon Says Stamp card kit, you could only buy a kit separately with no other purchases. We have improved your shopping experience, so you can add items to your shopping cart and pay for everything altogether!!
I hope these tips have helped you learn about some special items for your crafting needs. Thanks for tuning in today and spending some time with me!
