Why stamping?

 There are so many things in the crafting world and they come and go like hairstyles. One minute you're seeing them everywhere and the next they vanish into thin air. Stamps haven't gone anywhere. I think I'm creative and if push comes to shove, I can draw better than I could in 4th grade, but stamps allow me to create an image that I might not be able to draw.

With Stampin' Up, you get the option with wood-mounted or clear stamps and sometimes you get to use photopolymer. Those are my favorite. They're clear and you can really see what you're doing for accurate placement. The benefit with wood is that you aren't hunting for a block to place your stamp with. You just pick them up, grab the ink and go! And there's something traditional and old-fashioned linking me with past crafters when I grab my wood-mounted stamps.

Kids love them because it takes their art skill up a level and they're basically playing with clip art. You can do this type of crafting anywhere, and without electricity. You don't really need a huge cart of supplies when you do this. Ink, Paper, Scissors, and glue.
I've always loved Stampin' Up's punches. They coordinate perfectly with their stamped images. If you book a party this month, you'll get to use this exact set pictured here in this blog post. It's called Daisy Delight and it isn't even available for sale until June 1st. #party #paperfunforeveryone #paper #stampinup #ordertoday #newcatalog
