STEP #1 SELECTING YOUR STAMP SETS

At Stampin’ Up, we understand the importance of choosing the right stamps to kickstart your creative endeavors. For beginners, I recommend starting with a versatile all-occasion stamp set. Look for sets that include a mix of images and words, ensuring you’re equipped for a myriad of occasions. Whether it’s birthdays, thank you notes, or heartfelt messages, a well-rounded stamp set lays the foundation for your crafting journey. As you progress, you can expand your collection with specialized sets that resonate with your personal style.

TYPES OF STAMPS: PHOTOPOLYMER VS RUBBER CLING MOUNT

Photopolymer Stamps

Our top-quality photopolymer stamps are entirely transparent for perfect image placement, and they adhere well to our clear blocks. They’re flexible and easy to line up, giving you even more creative possibilities with each set. You can mix and match, bend, and layer images easily. You’ll only need one set of blocks for all your photopolymer stamps (blocks sold separately). 

CLING STAMPS

Our die-cut, cling stamps are made of high-quality red rubber. They come with a strong image label that clings like crazy to our clear blocks or Stamparatus plates for easy stamping. Stamp, then remove the stamp for space-saving storage. (Clear blocks and Stamparatus are sold separately.)

DISTINKTIVE STAMPS

Get photo-realistic style images with Distinktive stamps, available only from Stampin’ Up! Distinktive stamps have a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step. They’re available in red rubber and photopolymer; look for the Distinktive icon. Distinktive patent pending.

STEP #2 CHOOSING YOUR INK PADS

Now that you’ve selected your stamps, it’s time to bring them to life with vibrant colors. Begin with a classic black ink pad, a staple for outlining and adding definition to your designs. Then, explore Stampin’ Up’s extensive palette of 50+ exclusive colors, including the latest on-trend hues. Choose 3-5 of your favorite colors from our color families or mix and match individually.

STEP #3 PICKING CARD STOCK / PAPER

Completing the trio of essentials is selecting the canvas for your artistic expressions. Start with Basic White / Very Vanilla and Basic Black card stock – timeless choices that serve as versatile backgrounds for your designs. Complement them with an assortment pack of colored card stock, allowing you to add a burst of color and creativity to your projects. The right paper provides the foundation for your creations, ensuring durability and a professional finish.

GUIDE TO ADHESIVES

Essentials Guide to Adhesives for Papercrafting and Card Making

Adhesives: Bringing It All Together

No crafting project is complete without the right adhesive. For a versatile option, consider Multipurpose Glue &Seal Adhesive Double Sided tape runners. Additionally, Dimensionals add a pop to your projects by providing a 3D effect, adding depth and visual interest

BASIC ADHESIVES

LEARN MORE

Papercrafting is a delightful and creative hobby that allows you to express yourself through the art of paper and card creation. While the design and materials are crucial, the glue you choose plays a vital role in bringing your papercraft projects to life. In this blog post, I’ll delve into the world of papercrafting adhesives, focusing on some essential choices that can elevate your card making and papercrafting experiences.

  1. Stampin’ Seal Adhesive: Stampin’ Seal is a go-to adhesive for papercrafters seeking an instant-bond, permanent solution. It is designed to securely hold cardstock, designer series paper, and ribbon, making it versatile for various projects. What sets Stampin’ Seal apart is its acid-free composition, ensuring it’s safe for scrapbooking. With the convenience of refills, Stampin’ Seal is a reliable companion for your crafting endeavors.

  2. Stampin’ Seal Plus: For 3D projects and heavier layers, Stampin’ Seal Plus is the adhesive of choice. Similar to Stampin’ Seal, it offers an instant-bond, permanent solution with the added strength needed for more substantial elements. Like its counterpart, Stampin’ Seal Plus is acid-free, making it suitable for a wide range of crafting applications. The availability of refills ensures you never run out during your creative sessions.

  3. Mini Glue Dots: When working with smaller pieces of cardstock, paper, embellishments, ribbon, or detailed die cuts, Mini Glue Dots prove to be indispensable. These dots provide a mess-free and fume-free solution with no drying time. Ideal for intricate projects, Mini Glue Dots offer a quick and secure bond, making them a favorite among papercrafters.

  4. Stampin’ Dimensionals: To add depth and dimension to your projects, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals are your go-to adhesive foam dots. These double-sided foam dots provide an instant bond, lifting elements off the surface for a visually appealing effect. Available in regular and mini sizes, Stampin’ Dimensionals are versatile and even come in black, catering to darker-colored projects.

Alternatively you may prefer

  1. Multipurpose Liquid Glue: Often used instead of Seal Adhesive, or in addition  to it. Considered a must-have for crafters, Multipurpose Liquid Glue is a versatile adhesive that can securely adhere various materials. Whether it’s cardstock, paper, embellishments, glitter, 3D objects, or detailed die cuts, this glue gets the job done. The inclusion of narrow and broad tips adds to its usability, while the strong bond ensures your creations withstand the test of time.
  2. Tear Tape: Often used instead of Seal+ Adhesive. Tear & Tape is a strong adhesive with tearable paper backing for easy sticking. Perfect for adhering 3D items and large embellishments. Acid free.

Choosing the right adhesive is a crucial aspect of successful papercrafting. Whether you opt for the instant bond of Stampin’ Seal, the strength of Stampin’ Seal Plus, the precision of Mini Glue Dots, the versatility of Multipurpose Liquid Glue, or the dimensionality of Stampin’ Dimensionals, each adhesive serves a unique purpose in enhancing your creative projects. Experiment with these adhesives to discover the perfect combination for your papercrafting endeavors.

“Stepping It Up” Section: Specialty Papercrafting Adhesives

In this section, we delve into specialty options that go beyond the basics, offering enhanced features for your papercrafting projects.

  1. Fine Tip Glue Pen:

    • The Fine-Tip Glue Pen is a versatile adhesive perfect for delicate tasks. It excels in adhering small embellishments, glitter, and intricate die cuts to your projects.

    • Acid-free formula guarantees the longevity of your creations.
  2. Dimensional Foam Adhesive Sheets & Strips:

    • Beyond Stampin’ Dimensionals, explore options like Double-Sided Foam Adhesive Sheets and Foam Adhesive Strips for added flexibility.
    • Create depth and interest in your designs with these innovative foam adhesives.
  3. Regular Double-Sided Adhesive Sheets:

    • Transform your paper into stickers effortlessly with Regular Double-Sided Adhesive Sheets.
    • Perfect for use with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine or Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and dies.
    • Each pack contains 12 sheets measuring 6″ x 12″ (15.2 x 30.5 cm) and is acid-free for lasting quality.
  4. Silicone Craft Sheet:

    • Keep your workspace clean and adhesive-free with the Silicone Mat.
    • Apply adhesives without the mess by using the mat under your projects.
    • An invaluable tool for assembling smaller embellishments – simply place a dot of adhesive on the sheet, use both hands or the Take Your Pick Tool to assemble, and pop it off the sheet when the glue is dry.

By incorporating these specialty papercrafting adhesives into your repertoire, you elevate your crafting experience, adding precision, dimension, and convenience to your projects. Experiment with these options to discover new possibilities and enhance the overall quality of your papercraft creations.

MORE CARD MAKING BASIC TOOLS

In addition to the obvious stamps, ink, and paper, there are a few basic tools and supplies that will set you on the path to crafting success. Remember, you don’t need to break the bank—start with the essentials and build your collection over time.

Precision with Paper: A Good Paper Cutter

A high-quality paper cutter is a must-have tool for any crafter. Achieve clean, precise cuts every time, ensuring your projects look polished and professional. Whether you’re trimming cardstock for cards or cutting intricate designs for scrapbooking, a reliable paper cutter will be your best friend in the crafting journey.

Simply Shammy: A Clean Slate for Creativity

Keeping your stamps clean is essential for achieving crisp and vibrant designs. Enter the Simply Shammy—an absolute game-changer for stamp cleaning. This reusable, washable stamp cleaner makes the cleaning process a breeze, allowing you to switch between colors effortlessly. Say goodbye to messy cleanups and hello to a fresh canvas for your next masterpiece.

Tip: I like to store my Shammy in a Clear Stamp Case.

 

Scissors: Your Crafting Companion

While a paper cutter is excellent for straight lines, a good pair of scissors is indispensable for detailed cutting. From fussy cutting to snipping ribbon, scissors are a versatile tool that every crafter should have in their arsenal.

Stamp Blocks: The Foundation of Your Craft

Investing in acrylic stamp blocks is crucial for a smooth crafting experience. It’s recommended to have at least the sizes corresponding to the stamp sets you choose. To make things easier, consider opting for a block bundle. This all-in-one solution ensures you always have the right size block for your projects, eliminating the need for constant size-specific purchases.

CAN YOU PURCHASE STAMPIN UP OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES?

I can share my passion with you from any corner of the globe, however my ability to sell and ship Stampin’ Up products is governed by a designated selling territory. As a U.S. Demonstrator, my current territory is limited to the 50 states of the United States, the District of Columbia, and the United States Territories.

Within this defined area, I am dedicated to providing exceptional service, offering high-quality Stampin’ Up products, and sharing the joy of creativity. Unfortunately, I am not authorized to sell, place orders, deliver orders, or recruit outside of the U.S., in accordance with my agreement with Stampin’ Up—except for Military activities.

However I have no restrictions on sharing free creativity worldwide! If you are outside the US you can still take my free classes, videos, tutorials, and more.

Your understanding and cooperation mean the world to me. Thank you for being a valued part of my stampwithtami community, and I’m excited to continue sharing the creative journey with you!
