As I said, I got carried away...
with acrylic stamps! We now have a huge selection, well over 200 styles, of clear stamp sets. In addition, we also have red rubber cling stamp sets by Stampers Anonymous (Tim Holtz) and by Unity Stamp Company. These rubber stamp sets work on clear blocks, just like acrylic sets do.

Below, BasicGrey's new Hopscotch collection.

Our seasonal wall includes winter collections by Fancy Pants and Echo Park, and Valentine/love collections by American Crafts, Bo Bunny, Pink Paislee, and Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker, below.

TaDa Studios, below, is a new company for us. Nine collections are shown below, with themes ranging from holidays to masculine to circus.

Below, a selection of items I can't wait to get my hands on! Melody Ross (formerly of Chatterbox) has teamed up with GCD Studios for a line called Chip Art. There are albums, alphabets, and shapes, but the innovative part is metal "stamps" that are used to emboss/deboss chipboard. In addition to the metal stamps, Chip Art features mallets and a "pounding" board. Once you have added shapes to the chipboard, it's just a matter of coloring with Glimmer Mist or similar products to get chipboard that looks like metal or leather or pretty much whatever texture or finish you would like.

Here is a link to a YouTube demo by Melody Ross that shows you how to use the Chip Art line.
