NEW 3D Embossing Folder Plate now Available

Make crafting easier with the 3D Embossing Folder Plate – No messing with shims

The new 3D Embossing Folder Plate (item 149658) is now available to order! It’s designed to work with our new-style 3D embossing folders (which are thinner than our old-style Dynamic folders).

How to Use the New Plate:

The new plate makes up the difference in measurement between our old-style Dynamic Folders and our new-style 3D Folders in 21 mm gap machines (similar to the machine we used to offer). The 3D Embossing Folder Plate replaces the Standard Cutting Pads in your 3D embossing folder sandwich for continued high-quality emboss results.

To create your emboss sandwich:

  • Use a die-cutting & embossing machine platform as a base; no matter which machine you’re using, use the standard platform which comes with your machine.
  • Use the 3D Embossing Folder with your paper in the middle.
  • Then use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate on top.

Given the differences in machines and platforms, you may still have to add a shim to get your desired embossing results. (You can also spritz your paper before embossing to maximize your embossed impressions.)

Without the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate, you will need to use several shims with the Standard Cutting Pad in your 3D embossing folder sandwich, depending on the die-cutting & embossing machine you use. Most machines will need between three to five sheets of cardstock to shim. Please be careful in how you shim; start out with fewer sheets first, then add sheets to get your desired results. Stampin’ Up! will not be responsible to replace products broken due to using a sandwich which is too thick for a machine.

Remember that all NEW Embossing Folders are currently available to order. However, our carryover 3D embossing folders will not be available to order beginning with as we transition to our new manufacturer.

Also keep in mind that we expect to receive staggered plate shipments during June and July as we build inventory. So we may experience periods of time when it is unavailable to order if inventory is depleted; it will become available to order again when inventory is replenished.

As always, if you have any questions please let me know.

I’ll be placing an order tomorrow evening at 5 pm (ET), so if you want to be included please let me know.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a cute little purse tutorial that I made for my Catalog Kick Off with you.

New Super Cool Stamp Choice Being Offered

photopol image

Stampin’ Up! has just introduced  a super cool new option for you – a new photopolymer stamp set. What are photopolymer stamps, you wonder? Well, it’s a type of stamp where the actual stamp image is clear in addition to the block.

Although Stampin’ Up! is currently offering just one photopolymer stamp set it plans to offer a new one each month on a trial basis. So you now have more options as a stamper: wood-mount, clear-mount, and now photopolymer. Excited?

Click on the above picture to get your printable PDF  of the Designer Type Photopolymer Stamp Set with all the details.

They’re a great choice and can you believe our Designer Type Photopolymer Stamp Set (item 132956) contains 57 pieces for just $13.95!

What makes them so great you ask?

1. They are entirely transparent for the perfect placement every time!

2. They are durable – this photopolymer material is designed to last.

3. These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks – can you say sticky?

4. They’re age tested. They won’t yellow or cloud up over time.

5. They use FDA, food-safe material. Now you can think out of the box – how far can you stretch your stamping creativity?

6. Packaged in cello bag with insert, but you can store them in our Clear Mount Cases (item 119105)

Of course, you know Stampin’ Up! means a quality product and they’ve taken the time to find just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping to their line. The new photopolymer is a great addition to our Stampin’ Up! line. And the top-quality photopolymer will give a perfectly stamped image every time with our firm foam pads.

Photopolymer stamps will  be come in unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options for you that you may not see in our traditional wood and clear mount stamp options.

fine print – since this product if being offered on a trial basis there is not a standard time that each set is offered. There will be announcements made when the set is no longer available and new ones become available too.
