  2. Apply Heat and Stick Powder to the inked image. 
  3. Shake off excess powder onto the Powder Pal and funnel it back into its container.

Heat and stick 2

Quick, easy, and beautiful!  Check out these great products! 

Powder Pal

Item 102197 - Powder Pals:  The Powder Pals set was specifically designed to make returning embossing powder and glitter back to their containers neat and easy. The built-in funnel gives you greater control of embossing powders and glitter. You’ll wonder how you ever got along without it! Set includes 2 trays and a brush.

  • Large tray size, 10" x 14" x 1"; small tray size 6" x 8" x 1"; both sizes have a 1/2" funnel opening
  • Perfect for embossing powder and glitter
  • Comes with a brush for cleanup

Heat and Stick Powder

Item 100625 - Heat and Stick Powder:  Most people try to use glue to add glitter to a project, but it’s difficult to get a nice, even look. The Heat and Stick Powder fixes that problem perfectly. Heats to a sticky surface to hold glitter evenly.

Dazzling Diamonds

Item 102023 - Dazzling Diamonds Glitter:  Glitter adds a touch of sparkle to your stamped images. It’s easy to use with our Heat and Stick powder, or simply put a dab of Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive wherever you want a little shine. For a shimmery monogram, sprinkle some glitter on a Sticky Cuts letter. You’ll love these gorgeous glitters! 

  • Ultrafine polyester glitter.
  • Dazzling Diamonds: 1/2 oz.
  • Use with Heat and Stick powder, Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive, or Sticky Cuts Letters

Heat Tool

Item 100005 - Heat Tool:  This high-quality heat tool makes embossing quick and easy. You can also use this handy tool to heat set pigment inks on glass and cloth. Stampin’ Up!’s heat tool is one of the best on the market today. 

  • Melts Stampin’ Emboss and Heat and Stick powder
  • Heat-sets pigment inks
  • Safe, quick, quiet, and convenient
  • U/L approved
  • 1-year manufacturer’s warranty on workmanship and defects
  • 360 watts, heats up to 572º Fahrenheit (300º Celsius)

Embossing Buddy

Item 103083 - Embossing Buddy:  If you are going to do any embossing, you’ll love this tool. It helps keep unwanted flecks of embossing powder or glitter from sticking to the paper. Or, rub the Embossing Buddy over the surface of a bold image stamp to help it accept ink evenly.
  • Approximately 3" x 1-1/2" anti-static fabric pouch
  • Works great on all kinds of paper and other surfaces 
I hope you take the opportunity to add some DAZZLE to your next project!  You will LOVE IT!!

Retiring Colors Update

With the recent Color Renovation announcement, Stampin' Up!® has experienced a spike--much greater than anticipated--in demand for some of the retiring colors. You may be asking yourself: didn't Stampin' Up! anticipate increased demand on retiring colors? The quick answer is yes. The long answer is a bit more complicated. Even with the most careful planning, the response to a transition of this nature can surprise everyone!

For re-inkers in retiring colors, as they run out, they will be placed on backorder status and those orders will be filled as quickly as Stampin' Up!® receives the product. This will continue through May and then the re-inkers will be available while supplies last in June.

Cardstock presents a bit larger problem, as the process of ordering and producing new paper from the paper mills is very involved, and Stampin' Up!® can't order significant quantities at this point in time without putting the production of the new colors in jeopardy (and we know you want those!). To help Stampin' Up!® to be able to provide you with the cardstock in the retiring colors for as long as possible, textured paper will be substituted for some of the smooth colors (including card stock in 8-1/2" x 11" as well as 12" x 12) where the smooth is no longer available.  These colors will go on backorder and will be filled (as many of those as possible) with textured card stock. Because the demand for each color varies, Stampin' Up! ® is unable to provide a list of what colors of cardstock will be substituted with textured, or at what point that will happen. However, if you receive a package of cardstock that is textured instead of smooth, there will be a sticker on the package indicating that change. There will be no change in item code or price for these substitutions.

Stampin' Up!® realizes that this is an extraordinary situation and that this solution may not be ideal for everyone; however, the hope is that it will help you get the retiring colors you want for as long as possible.

Please keep in mind that an instance may arise where Stampin' Up! is unable to fill orders on a specific product and it will become unavailable before the end of May, but those cases should be minimal, and Stampin' Up!® will communicate those situations as they may arise.

I encourage you to visit my ONLINE STORE today and place an order for your must-have retiring products before they become unavailable.  As always, if you have any questions, please CONTACT ME, as I would be happy to assist you! 

Thank you for your patience as Stampin' Up!® works through this extraordinary situation. 

Have a blessed day!
