And you thought our stamps were already clear

Good Morning.  I am writing to you live from Big Sky, Montana!  My rocket scientist husband brought me out here for an aerospace conference.  I came out here to ski and work on my son's scrapbook on MDS2.  I love it b/c it's not linked to the internet and I can work on it on the plane and in the airport, etc.  I can't recommend MDS more!  I love it.  OK...commercial for that another day.

Earlier this week Stampin' Up! announced a new type of stamp.  I am very excited about it!

Here's a fun little video of the announcement!

More later.  Here's a project to wet your whistle.
This is one of the projects we did at club last week.  I love easel cards.  I got this idea from the brilliant Brenda Quintana on Qbees Quest.  Here is the link to the tutorial for this fun card.
 If you don't recognize the cross, it's the lattice die.  Really cool idea.  The other new product I used on the right card is the stampin' Spritzer.  It was so fun.  It was rather intimidating, but really fulfilling.  You should try it.  On the left card I tried a brown cross and ran it through the big shot in the woodgrain embossing folder.  I was going for the real crucifix look.  I think it worked :)
