Watercoloring with Crayons

Just follow these simple steps to a beautifully colored project.


1. Bold stamp set

2. Watercolor Wonder Crayons

3. Watercolor Paper

4. Water in spritzer bottle

More news....

About a year ago, SU made the decision to start double mounting some of their larger stamp sets. They felt this would be a good way to get stamp sets with several pieces into a lower price range--since double mounting would reduce the number of wood blocks needed for the set.

This has not, however, been a popular decision for demonstrators and customers. Therefore, SU is determined to look for other ways to reduce their costs and bring the price of these types of sets down. This means that with the exception of some stamp sets, they will no longer be creating double-mounted stamp sets.


Stampin' Up! announced that they will be moving back to an annual catalog this coming July 2009. The mini catalog program will change to include three mini catalogs a year, each lasting for four months.

Also, they will be introducing a small selection of hostess sets in each mini catalog!

Once Upon A Time Stamp Set #113746

Once upon a time there was a lonely stamp. The reason it was so lonely was because with its exclusive, deeply-etched image backed with foam and mounted on a clear maple block, it was of such high quality that it felt all alone in the world. Tired of its isolated existence, surrounded by inferior stamps, the lonely stamp set off in search of other high-quality stamps. After a long journey, the lonely stamp came to a beautiful brick building where it found thousands of other high-quality stamps frolicking happily in a ridiculously large fountain. All of the stamps were not just of high quality, some of them even coordinated with the lonely stamp's design. The lonely stamp made many friends and soon learned that when it worked with the other coordinating stamps, there was nothing they could not make together. Cards, covers, scrapbook pages, 3-D items˜they were all unique and beautiful. The stamp was no longer lonely! Together with the other coordinating stamps, it lived happily ever after.
