If you watched the video yesterday I am wondering if you heard the term DOUBLE CONFIGURATION?  That was a new one on me!!!!  I hope that you printed out the PDF.  It took the picture on that flyer for me to figure out what that new term means.  Evidently, there are 13 stamps in the set and the set includes BOTH Cling stamps and Photopolymer stamps ~ in the same set!  I think that we all realize that there are different ways to use cling & photopolymer.  Here are samples that I saved from my favorite FB group of demonstrator friends ~

Project Sheet stamped Christmas Time is hereThis sample, created by Michelle Hornback, uses the cling stamps in the Christmas Rose stamp set.

Project Sheet w Blends Christmas Time is hereAnd, this sample, created by Stella MacKay, uses the photopolymer stamps and the blends to create a softer look.  Which one is your favorite???

Tuesday Project Sheet

This card is made using the NATURE'S BEAUTY stamp set.  You can find it on the very last page of the Holiday Catalog ~ the inside back cover.  Stampin' Up! has designated the stamp set as the first in the series MAKING A DIFFERENCE and they donate $3 of every sale towards mental health organizations.  Notice the leaves on the sides of the deer label ~ the Gathered Leaves dies emboss and cut!  And, the leaves are cut from Crumb Cake cardstock which is sponged with Soft Suede ink prior to embossing ~ this creates the veins on the leaves.  You can find all of that on the Project Sheet but I wanted to point it out in advance ~ it's a great technique!

Tuesday Project Sheet

It is really hard to see how pretty this designer series paper is ~ the picture doesn't do the card justice!  Look on page 48 in the Holiday Catalog to see the colors and the design ~ so pretty.  And, it seems like we may finally get a little touch of Fall this week.  Let's hope so!

This is one of the cards that we made at the CREEPY HALLOWEEN CLASS yesterday afternoon.  The stamp set is WONDERFULLY WICKED and you can find it on page 55 in the Holiday Catalog.  Two products in the catalog make this card especially spooky ~ the BASIC PATTERN DECORATIVE MASKS (page 35) and the MERCURY GLASS DESIGNER ACETATE (page 33).  The tree branches are sponged using one of the masks and Gorgeous Grape ink on Gorgeous Grape card stock.  'Wicked' is die cut out of the acetate.  Thee are four 12 x 12 sheets in a package of two different designs ~
