It's almost time for our second stamp set debut! :) I can give you a few hints about this next set....{No more pics, though! Ha'll have to wait a few more days!}

34 stamps
It's NOT a Halloween Set.
It's NOT a Thanksgiving Set.
It's NOT a Fall Set.

It's ALL of the ABOVE!!!! ;)

I filmed the intro video for the Oct. set yesterday and couldn't stop playing! You will love it!

Also, an update on our gallery...please upload your creations using our first set, Back2Basics! Don't forget there will be two in the digital category and one in the clear stamp category.

A Club Member's Card

One of my all time favorite things about my job is seeing what stampers create with my stamps! So when Club Member, Janine Verster from Washington, emailed me a photo of her first creation with her new stamps, I was thrilled!

I was so thrilled, I asked her if I could share it with you. :)

So here it is:

Isn't it adorable?!? Here's what Janine had to say, "The cards I have made so far, are so effortless as the stamps are so easy to align. They are of the high quality you mentioned, as every time I stamp I get a crisp & clear image. I am very thrilled about my new stamp set and can’t wait for next month’s set."

Thanks, Janine! As a club member, your next stamp set will be sent on Oct. 1st! Woo Hoo!

Are YOU a club member?!? If not, click here to become one!

Here are just a few things others are saying about the stamps:

*Got my stamps today. They are everything you said they were! I usually hesitate to buy acrylics with solid designs as it is hard to get a good image, but yours are perfect! Thank you!

*Hi Stephanie..just wanted to let you know that I received my first order from you today..the Back2Basics-Set 1. I am thrilled with them, I also love the free paper sheets..thank you so much.

Wowsers! :)

The response to our launch is amazing! Thanks so much for your support and "Welcome!" to our new Club Members! (I've enjoyed talking with each of you on the phone!)

I had a few questions and I thought it would be a good idea to answer them here, as well.

Question: I live outside of the US and Canada...(in the UK), can I purchase your digital items?
Answer: YES! ANYONE can purchase the digital items we offer. AND, you can participate in the digital contests. :)

Here are two digital examples by our very own design team member, Jeanne Streiff. In both cards, she used the digital images to make larger images than the original clear stamp size!
Imagine the possibilities of making the images smaller or a bit larger! Wow!
Another Question: What type of digital files will I get?
Answer: You get each image, three ways! In jpg, png and as Photoshop brushes. If you are new to digital, the jpgs will be your friend. If you are a pro, then you will love the Photoshop brushes. You get all three types, so the choice is yours!
To purchase the clear stamps and or the digital stamps, click here.
Just announced!!! Prism Papers is including in EVERY KIT this month, three sheets of 8.5x5.5 cardstock in THREE colors! The cardstock will be included in your kit! Woo Hoo! Go, Prism, Go Prism! :)
