Video: Lighthearted Leaves Doodling

Even though I told myself I had enough leaves on hand, this new one is a little folk-art quirky.  It’s  a bit different from what I had so I put it on my list.  It’s called Lighthearted Leaves and will be available soon to all,  Sept 1, in the Stampin’ Up Holiday Catalog.   (side note: If you have purchased from me this year, you automatically are on my list to receive one and I hear they are beginning to arrive to mailboxes!  If you aren’t sure if you are on my list or want to be added to receive one, email me and I’ll get you one.)

I love that it coordinates with the leaflets framelits in the annual catalog, too!

I love using the white gel pen on Sahara Sand – so crisp and snappy.  I did a video for this one and if you are one of my members of Stamping School, there are 2 other videos this week using this cute stamp set.

Video: Test Driving The new Basic Black Archival Ink Pad

ink pad test drive

Stampin’ Up has been experimenting with black ink pads for as long as I’ve been a demonstrator.  I remember the first Basic Black for me was a little ink pad, about 3″ x 5″.  Then they switched to the bigger, linen or fabric pads but they sometimes turned a weird purple color.  Then our new foam pads, which only in the Basic Gray and Basic Black, dried out too quickly because of the waterproof formula.

Enter the new Archival Basic Black and Basic Gray, due out in the Holiday Catalog Sept 1st!  It is not a foam pad like the other colors but a felt or fabric pad, so it feels like the old pads but less textured if that makes sense.

I was hopeful but knowing there have been issues getting the right water-resistant pad.

I couldn’t wait to do a comparison of all 3 black pads to see how it stood up.   (Since I’m a Stampin’ Up demo, I am only testing our 3 black pads and not others on the market.)   Here’s my comparison of the 3 pads:

So for a water-resistant pad, good for coloring and basic stamping, I like it and it is much needed. Easier to clean than StazOn and crisper than memento.  The Basic Gray stamps just as well and is nice for a softer outline.

I think you will want to try it out!

Hope you can Stamp Something this weekend,
