For several years, there has been great demand for repositionable clear-mount stamps. Well, we asked for it, and now we have it! Starting with the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog and the 2010 Sale-A-Bration Brochure, Stampin′ Up! will be offering both traditional wood-mount, and the new clear-mount option. Do I hear a YIPPEEE?! :)
The new clear-mount stamps are the result of extensive research with the intent to maintain the very best image quality in the stamping industry, while at the same time offering the ease-of-use and storability inherent in repositionable clear-mount stamps. Please take a look at the photo above and you'll notice the stamps themselves are the same high quality rubber and foam as the wood mount, but they are made to mount on clear blocks! Ingenious!
The clear blocks have ergonomic grooves on all four sides for easy grip and traditional wood-mount feel. Optional image labels on stamp backs let you decide if you want to see the image through the block or not. Another plus is that the stamps store easily in standard, DVD-type cases with artwork on front and spine, making organization easy.

Stampin' Up! has also adopted a new body style for all their punches! I preordered the pinking hearts punch and it is *awesome*! The new punches have a low-profile, rectangular punch body that allows for easier stacking and storing and they lock shut for easier storage and transport.
