Salt Lake City, Utah (July 15, 2002) - Stampin Up!®, one of the nation's leading manufacturers and distributors of decorative rubber stamps and accessories, has just released its new 2002-2003 Idea Book & Catalog, offering more than 250 pages of stamping ideas and products from its four exclusive product lines, Stampin' Memories®, Two-Step Stampin'®, Stampin' Around, and Definitely Decorative®, as well as thousands of new accessories. With more than 600 sample ideas and color photographs, the new publication reflects the growing passion and demand for high quality rubber stamp products used to create special and distinctive greeting cards, gifts, crafts, scrapbook pages and home décor projects.
"The 2002-2003 Idea Book & Catalog is the best one yet! Its classic, elegant style illustrates how decorative rubber stamping and Stampin' Up!'s great artwork is growing and evolving into many new creative outlets, such as scrapbooking, crafts and home décor," says Shelli Gardner, Stampin' Up! cofounder and CEO. "It's full of inspirational ideas for stamping enthusiasts of all levels."
In this year's catalog, Stampin' Up! is introducing a new section: Growing Up. This section features fun and playful kid-themed stamp sets including "Crayon Kids" and "Elementary Days" using a youthful, crayon-like style. Other popular art styles featured in this year's catalog are the classic sketched, playful cartoon and feminine French-toile de Joie. As expected there are many new and exciting Two-Step Stampin' sets and Stampin' Around wheels featured in the catalog. In addition, there are six new unique alphabet designs. Four of the six sets include both upper and lower case letters in the set, applied to the same block. Frame sets are also a very popular style in this year's catalog. These versatile sets include a decorative frame with six coordinating bold stamps. These fun, fresh sets can be used when creating a card or laying out a scrapbook page. Stampin' Up!'s added many bold Definitely Decorative sets to the product line, such as "Rubber Ducky" and "Spring Time Fun," making home décor projects fun and easy.
Stampin' Up! is also introducing a new, revolutionary-designed Stampin' Pad®. The Classic pad is a water-based dye ink pad used for card making, crafts and other creative projects. The new Craft pad contains fade resistant pigment ink that is heavier and richer, and is ideal for scrapbook pages as well as wood, walls, fabric and cards. Each pad is available in Stampin' Up!'s exclusive 48 colors and is made with the highest quality plastic and a patented flip lid design. This revolutionary design is unlike anything else on the market. An industry expert stated that, "it certainly will be the top of the line ink pad available" for rubber stamping. Stampin' Up! is also introducing eight new spectrum pads with five colors each using Stampin' Up!'s exclusive color line. Some of these include Taffy, Pumpkin Patch and Parfait.
More than ever, Stampin' Up! is expanding their commitment to preserving previous memories through scrapbooking, with the Stampin' Memories products.
