New Product Alert - Genuine Gems

New stamp set alert!

Coming June 4th to Stampin' Up! the stamp set Genuine Gems available for purchase. It includes 10 cling stamps. Reminder that Stampin' Up! will have only 2 styles of stamp sets - Photopolymer and Cling. Cling stamps are replacing our wood mount and clear mount. You will still need clear acrylic blocks or a Stamparatus to place your stamps on to use them. With the new Cling mount the image sheet clings to clear blocks quite well.

Demonstrator Tip: Use the tip of something to release a corner of the stamp. Slowly pull the stamp off your block. Pull with too much gusto or too quickly, you may actually rip your stamp apart. When you place the stamp on the block, do not press down hard like you needed to with the old clear mount stamps on the clear acrylic blocks because they didn't stick well to the blocks.

Demonstrator Tip 2: You can tint vellum. I stamped the image on top side with StaZon ink. I colored the back side of the butter fly with a Stampin Blends marker to give it a subtle tint.

Genuine Gems stamp set is a great choice for general phrases sets that everyone should have in their stash. This card uses 2 of our new InColors - Terracotta Tile and Seaside Spray. they are 2 of our 5 new InColors - Rococo Rose, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray, Purple Posy available June 4, 2019 to purchase. We will have ink pads, cardstock, ink refills, scalloped linen ribbon, markers, 12x12 cardstock, designer series pair, faceted dots and more. 4 of the 5 InColors are available in Stampin' Blends, our alcohol based blendable markers. Terracotta Tile is not available in a Stampin' Blend at this point.
