When I get up in the morning the first (well second) thing I do is come downstairs and make myself a fresh hot cup of coffee. Decaf coffee. 🙂 Then I brush my teeth and get dressed for the day. The Coffee Café Bundle was also on my first order from the new catalog.
The new Coffee Café stamp set is photopolymer so you can see exactly where you’re placing your images.
After wood mounted stamps (my diehard favorites) I really like photopolymer. TIP: If you feel the bottom of your stamp feeling a bit ‘slick’, give it a tiny spritz of Stampin’ Mist and wipe it off on your Stampin’ Scrub. A lint like film can accumulate after lots of usage and that can make the cling to the clear block a little less secure. Truth be told I often just wet my finger tip and swipe it across the bottom of my photopolymer stamp and stick it right onto my clear block. Works like a dream!
My Stampin’ Up! friend Andrea Withers has a few tips to share with you about this new Coffee Café bundle of products:
There’s so much fun in store for us! Along with the Coffee Café stamp set, we have these other coordinated accessories:
- Coffee Cups Framelits Dies
- Coffee Break Designer Series Paper
- Corrugated Elements
- 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon: Crumb Cake, Soft Sky and Whisper White
- Coffee Break Cardstock Pack
I’m really looking forward to being able to share some stamped projects using these products just as soon as they arrive at my house. It’s Christmas all over again. Yes, some of us never grow up and never get tired of new ‘toys’ and ‘playthings’.
