More Single Stamp Sets

Ten Never-Before-Seen Images!

You wanted more? You got more! We’ve had a great response so far to our experiment with single stamps. So much so that we are making ten more never-before-seen images available as single stamps available through March 31, 2013.

Details

  • You can find the stamp item numbers on the flyers.
  • Single stamps can be ordered in the online store.
  • These won’t be sent in our typical cases or packaging; they’ll be packaged in cello bags. If you’d like a case for your stamp, you can buy our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases that come in packs of four (item 119105).
  • This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only.
  • The stamps won’t come with a Clear-Mount Block, and you’ll need to buy a block separately if you don’t already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyer.
  • There’s no limit on how many pieces you can buy.
  • These stamps are only available through March 31, 2013, so get them while you can!

Snow Festival Designer Printed Tags

The Snow Festival Designer Printed Tags on page 12 of the holiday catalog are not just for tags. See how you can turn these tags into fast and easy cards. You get 25 double-sided tags; 5 each of 5 double-sided designs. They are also acid-free which works great for scrapbook page accents. Did I mention they are only $3.95!
