Haitian Disaster Relief
On January 12, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, leaving in its wake devastation so overwhelming that the Haitian people and their leaders can only look for help from the outside to cope. As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, you can help make a difference in the lives of those who continue to suffer from the effects of this earthquake by purchasing, and more importantly selling, the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set. From now until February 28, 2010, $2 from every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set sold will be donated to the American Red Cross' Haiti Relif and Dvelopment Fund. The Red Cross is already well-established in Haiti, and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.

Information about our new "Clear-mount rubber stamps"!

Over the past few years, there has been enormous demand from demonstrators and customers alike for a line of repositionable clear-mount rubber stamps. Well, you asked for it, and now you have it! Starting with stamps in the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog and the 2010 Sale-A-Bration Brochure, Stampin' Up! now offers our exclusive stamp art in both traditional wood-mount, and the new clear-mount option. Our new clear-mount rubber stamps are the result of extensive research with the intent to maintain the very best image quality in the stamping industry, while at the same time offering the ease-of-use and storability inherent in repositionable clear-mount rubber stamps.

Clear-Mount Rubber Stamp Features

*Nine different sizes of clear blocks available individually or as a discounted bundle.
*Blocks have ergonomic grooves on all four sides for easy grip and traditional wood-mount feel.
*Stamps and blocks are durable and easy to clean with your Stampin' Scrub and Stampin' Mist.
*Optional image labels on stamp backs let you decide if you want to see the image through the block or not.
*Tight die-cutting for easy image positioning.
*Large clear blocks can be used to create collages or spell words with alphabet sets.
*Stamps store easily in standard, DVD-type cases with artwork on front and spine, making organization easy.
