A happy hello, a sad goodbye, weekly deals and a fun new product!

I have a lot to share with you today.  First the good news!  We have a new photopolymer stamp set available called Just Kidding.  I've already ordered this set, so we'll be using it soon.

Just Kidding Photopolymer Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

This funny new set is just what you need for laughs that will last. It's so versatile, you'll find yourself using it over and over again. Recommended clear block sizes are D, G (not included in the set).

Our photopolymer stamps offer a versatile all-clear stamping option. You'll find that our photopolymer is top-quality and gives a perfectly stamped image every time. The stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks and are easy to place just where you want them. And best of all, you get to enjoy tons of images for a great price!

BLENDABILITIES UPDATE:  There have been continued quality issues with the Blendabilities Markers product line.  Due to the nature of the defect (see below), Stampin' Up! has concluded that difficulties, dissatisfaction, and product returns will only become more widespread. The manufacturer is unable to correct the problem in a manner that Stampin' Up! is certain would meet their high quality standards and provide them with a stable, long-term solution. Therefore, after a great deal of deliberation and in order to prevent further disappointment, the Blendabilities product line has been discontinued.

Q: Will the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad (item #132708) and the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad Refill (item #133456) still be available for purchase?
A: Yes. These items will continue to be available for purchase.  
Q: What are the quality problems with this product?
A: When the tip is welded to the barrel, the welding process can leave microscopic (invisible) holes in the marker tip. This leads to accelerated evaporation of the alcohol in the ink.
Q: Are all Blendabilities markers defective?
A: No. Most Blendabilities markers work as intended and I haven't personally encountered this problem.   
Q:  What if I have Blendabilities markers that are defective?  If you ordered them through me, please email me for assistance.  
Today's project is a fun card we made in our workshops last month and features our new Chalkboard Paper and Chalk inks.

For the card base, I stamped the Hardwood background stamp in Smoky Slate ink on the card front and used a square framelit to cut the bottom out to create legs for the chalkboard stand.  

I used the Rose Coral Chalk Ink pad for the words and embellished with a clip, twine and sequins.

Big Day (SAB) and Hardwood stamp sets
Smoky Slate, Calypso Coral card stock and Chalkboard Paper
Smoky Slate and Rose Coral Chalk inks
