Megumi-Seo-Japan-2

Hi Stamping Friends!  It's been a realy interesting week at The Stamp Act.  The young lady in the photo at left is Megumi Seo from Japan.  She and her friend are touring the Southwest.  She loves stamping and told me that there are stamp stores in Japan but they are small and many products cost much more there than here.  She was so cute running around the store like the proverbial kid in a candy store!  She had never seen brass stencils and was fascinated with the crackle technique that I taught recently.  She bought all the supplies and I gave her the instructions for the cards.  Good luck Megumi!

In addition to Meg's visit this week, several old customers who haven't been here for many years have stopped in.  I think the cooler weather gives us more incentive to stamp!  I have also had many deliveries this week -- 8 boxes in one day!!!  Here's a run down of what's new in the store:

Stampendous -- Back to School stamps; Fall and Halloween stamps; Birthday stamps

Copic Markers -- we're loaded -- hurry in for best selection!  Love them!!!!

Doublemates cardstock-- This is double sided c/s and I ordered it in beautiful fall colors of olive, terra cotta and deep red

Inkadinkado -- Very artistic fall stamps and they're only $2.29 -- you can't go wrong!

Tim Holtz -- New Rock Candy Distress and Rock Candy Sticklesas well as few other new distress stickles colors (Bronze and Picket Fence).  If you haven't heard of Rock candy -- it is clear and very cool!  Gotta have!  We have his new Word Sticks and Masking Sheets and we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of his Filmstrip ribbon in a few weeks.

Hero Arts -- Stamps for halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Their new line little gem embellishments (ornaments, stars, holly and snowflakes) and felt embellishments (leaves, angels and evergreen trees).

Just Rite-- I think all their new items are in stock currently but they won't last.  Every set has sold out over and over so if you are interested in these fabulous sets stop in soon!  The Halloween set is so cute and the Autumn Blessings set is a real favorite!  Remember they are all limited edition and won't be available after the season!

Spellbinders -- Speaking of limited editions -- I have all the seasonal dies in stock right now.  Poinsettias, trees, maple leaves, Christmas shapes (see sample below), snowflakes and pumpkins.  I also have for ethe first time a 12" vine border that is gorgeous and the new Snowflake Frame.  Must haves -- thy will sell out quickly!

Penny Black -- Lots of season clear sets.  Fun little critters doing fun things!

Making Memories Mistletoe Paper -- This paper has it all -- colorful, cute and elegant!  perfect for your Christmas cards!  Some are glittered, some have cute little reindeer and some are artistic like the music paper.  Come check it out!

A Muse-- new halloween stamps that are selling fast.  Also I ordered some of their cardstock: tiny gingham checks and white polka dots.  It's 81/2" x 11" and perfect for cardmaking.

Flower Soft-- They have been overwhelmed by the demand for their product and the boats can't come from China quick enough to satisfy the orders!  I have more Polar White and Box Sets on the way (should be here early next week) and I am checking the website everyday to see if the Autumn is back in stock.  It should be available early next week so with luck it will be in my store by early October.

Day of the Dead -- I have day of the Dead stamps from Deadbeat Designs and Rubber Soul.  They sell fast so come in soon if you need some.

Basic Grey -- The new Indian Summer papers are gorgeous (I know I am overusing that word but ...).  we have them in 12" x 12" and in the small 6" x 6" pad.  we also have the Eskimo Kisses 6" pad.

WHAT'S COMING SOON

Impression Obsession -- Very creative and artistic stamps; cling mounted so easy to store and easy on the pocketbook!  Should arrive today or tomorrow.

Martha Stewart Punches-- More new seasonal punches.  A beautiful cardinal; snowman with all his pieces; snowman border punch; new snowflake corner and edge punches; a darling gingerbread border punch and a pumpkin patch border punch.  These will arrive in early October and they are very limited.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist-- Felicity will be using Glimmer Mist in her Fall Cards class October 3 at 2pm.  The colors are gorgeous for the halloween fall and christmas seasons -- and there's so much you can do with them.  watch for an upcoming class using their new glimmer screens!

Lockhart Stamp Company -- New season and old favorite stamps including their new window stamps!  Color them and enjoy!

Memory Box -- I reordered the new Twilight paper pad (Halloween) as well as many of his new stamps.  In the Making Memories papers there is a paper with cardinals on it -- it's the perfect paper for a card using one of the cardinals by Memory Box!

Whew -- I think that's enough for now.  Hero Artshas a whole new mini catalog called "Crazy for Clings" so watch for new Hero stamps soon!
