Upcoming Classes at The Stamp Act
TUESDAY, MAY 19, 2015
Hello Members and Friends.
Today I want to share with you samples from classes coming up this weekend. Our morning class, Wood Paper Cards, will be all about working with real wood paper. We will die cut, color, inlay and otherwise use this "paper" to make attractive cards that have that special something! Great for masculine cards! The wood paper comes in cherry (photo on left) and the lighter birch (photo above right) and it's easy to cut and color. Please see all the samples here then give me a call to join us for this fun class.
Saturday afternoon's class, Faux Metal Backgrounds, I would characterize as "mixed media light!" We will use commonly available supplies (one from the kitchen!) to create backgrounds with the look of vintage metal ceiling tiles. I will teach you 2 techniques that produce different yet equally attractive results.
Please join us!
What's New at The Stamp Act
There's always something new at The Stamp Act and this week it's dies! The very, very popular Rose Card and Handwritten Sentiments dies from Little B are back in stock. The rose card die set cuts the rose and 2 sizes of mats (or frames) for the rose image. Die cut the front of a card (pink sample on left) or cut and mount to the front of a card (red sample on the right). Either way it's gorgeous!
See all the new dies on the A What's New page including a new "With Sympathy" die; A Classic Car die perfect for Father's Day; new dies from Penny Black -- love the new cute kitties!; and many dies for Father's Day, Summer and Patriotic from Taylored Expressions. Plus many of the new dies from Memory Box and Poppy Dies (see page 2 of What's New) are now in stock. Reserve any product you want simply by sending me an email or calling me at 1-915-833-9500.
We also have these 2 new stamp sets in stock from Poppy. The set on the left is "Into the Words" and it includes a variety of whimsical sentiments that will be the perfect captions for many of your stamped and die cut images. We have these dies that will work with the captions: fawn, squirrels, candles, deer, rabbits, sailboats, flowers, and clocks.
The set on the right is called "Hope and Thanks" and it includes a number of meaningful sentiments that conclude the "Hoping" or "Thank You" thought. Use them separately as "outie and innie" sentiments or use them together on the inside or outside of a card.
We Love Our Customers -- in El Paso and Beyond!
While our website does not have a traditional shopping cart, we love orders from everywhere! This week I am shipping graduation dies to a teacher in Washington state and a papercrafter in Wisconsin, and Distress ink pads, dies and stamps to 3 customers in Florida. I recently sent an embossing folder to a customer in Maine. No order is too small or too large. So please contact me if you need papercrafting supplies because I am always ready to ship what's in stock or order what's not. And if you're a local customers, be sure to stop in soon and see what's new in person! Thanks to all customers!
