My Favorite Stampin’ Up! Products

My Top Five Favorite Stampin’ Up! Products & Why.

I love lots of our Stampin’ Up! products but I have to say my top five favorites right now March 8th 2018 are:

The big shot: I would not want to not have a big shot as it adds s much to your paper crafting projects. You can add dry embossing to cards, die cuts to your scrapbooks, make boxes, bags and much more. Here are the big shot details as described on the Stampin’ Up! Website. Say hello to your crafty friend—the Big Shot. It’s a manual, multipurpose die-cutting system that you can use to quickly and easily create die-cut or embossed shapes, envelopes, tags, and 3D items.
* Portable; no electricity required
* Includes Standard Cutting Pads and Multipurpose Platform
Cuts a variety of materials depending on the die used
Therefore I think the big shot is number one in my book.

2. Stampin’ Trimmer: This trimmer is my second favorite product
at Stampin’ Up! There are many other trimmers out there on the
market, but I find this trimmer to be superior over all the
pthers. I like that it has a lock down arm for traveling, a wide
six inch base and it includes a scoring and cutting blade. Here
are the details according to the Stampin’ Up! website:
I would recommend this trimmer to everyone because it can
be used as a trimmer as well as a score board.

This is the paper trimmer that all other paper trimmers want to be! This lightweight, portable trimmer is specially designed to make stable and straight cuts.

* Full 12″ cut or score
* 1 cutting and 1 scoring blade included
* Extra-wide, 6-1/4″ cutting base for most projects; 14-1/2″ extendable ruler for large projects
* Ruler and grid protected by durable plastic cover
* Point on cutting handle for precise measuring
* Right-side grid for cutting thin strips
Includes storage compartments for Bone Folders and more

3. Another product that I feel is an essential in paper crafting is
our snail adhesive. This adhesive is strong yet you can
reposition it and if you get some any place it should not be,
you can rub it off very disillusioned. Stampin’ Up! describes it
as follows: SNAIL is double-sided, permanent adhesive. It
applies a controlled amount of adhesive directly to your
project, so your hands and work area never get sticky.
* 13.1 yards (12 m) of adhesive
* Easy to apply and refill
* Refills available
There only $7.00 and they are refillable, so why not grab a few
and try them.

4.My next favorite item for paper crafting from Stampin’ Up! is our
Stampin’ ink pads. These ink pads are the best I have ever
seen, the are large pads, refillable, and they store up side down
so the ink stays at the top. Stampin’ Up! Discribes them on
their website as follows:
Make a colorful impression with our signature ink. Classic
Stampin’ Pads come in exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors, grouped
in collections to take the guesswork out of product
coordination. The innovative ink pad design has a patented
flip-top lid and a firm foam pad to give you a superior stamping
experience.
* 10 pads, 1 each of 10 colors: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight,
Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, Real
Red, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise
* Fast drying, dye-based ink
* Acid free
* Flip top for upside-down storage: pads stay inked during
storage
* Firm foam pad lasts longer than felt pads and provides
exceptional ink coverage, especially with solid-image
stamps
* Can be re-inked with matching Classic Stampin’ Ink Refills
* Coordinates with Stampin’ Up! cardstock, markers, and
embellishments
These inks are the best like I said befor, the lids are attached so
they don’t fall off. Try yours today.

5. And last but not least is our Stampin’Up! card stock. When I
first started paper crafting I used to use regular card stock
from the big box craft stores. Then when I was introduced to
Stampin’ Up and their card stock, oh my goodness, what a
difference.it is think and colored all the way through to the
core. Stampin’Up! describes it as follows: The best projects
start with the best products. Start your projects with our high-
quality cardstock, formulated especially for discerning
crafters. The ultra smooth surface is ideal for stamping, so you
get clean, crisp images. And it’s dyed with pure color all the
way through so there’s no white core. Each assortment
includes 20 sheets, 2 each of 10 colors.
* 8-1/2″ x 11″
* 20 sheets, 2 sheets each of 10 colors: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil
Delight, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie,
Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, Tempting
Turquoise
* Acid free
* Lignin free

Therefore in my book it is the best card stock you can get.

Hope you enjoyed my top pick and if you are ever interested in any of these products you can visit my website at www.bringjoywithstamping.stampinup.net

Happy Stamping Brenda
