News Flash!

Extra, extra, read all about it!  The new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog is out and I am SO PUMPED about this host stamp set - it is CRAZY cute!  I know I *just* used this in my last post, but yeah - I like it that much.

We recently did a team swap featuring all new products from the new Stampin' Up! catalog, and Pun Intended was my go-to.  I wanted to whip up something fun, busy, bright, and with a bit of a "wow" factor.

And - ooh, I fooled you - this card ISN'T IT!  I whipped this bad boy up a few weeks ago when I was first playing around with my new goodies.  It WAS my jumping-off point, however, and provided a great base for our swap card!  I'll have that card to share with you soon.  :)

Today's Stampin' Tip:  Because the Basic Black Embossing Powder was recently retired, I know you must be wondering how I embossed that rich black camera.  It's super easy, and you don't need to have a stash of the now-sold-out Black EP!  Just stamp your camera in Basic Black Archival Ink, and while the ink is still wet, dump some clear embossing powder on it.  Voila - bold, shiny, black embossing!

Because this Pun Intended is a Host Set, it is ONLY available with a $200 party or order... so if you've got a big list, you'll want to hop over to my store and get Pun Intended as a freebie!  Smaller order?  I'd love it if you used this month's host code!

Thanks so much for swinging by for a visit - have a fabulous day!



  1. thanks for the tip about embossing the camera but do you have to heat emboss after you dump the powder on it .

    1. Absolutely! Just use the Basic Black Archival Ink in place of Versamark in your usual heat-embossing process. :)
