Gifts under $5 are just the thing for the stamper on your Christmas list. Here are some of the great little extras in the Stampin' Up! catalog that will transform you into Santa's favorite Stampin' elf.
101610 Sponges, pg 193
Use these for sponging ink in resist techniques, applying large areas of colors and edging. There are three in a package. Use them whole or cut into quarters so you can have one for each color.
The thick, vibrant line is perfect for journaling or highlighting stamped art, especially on darker colored card stock. The ink is water resistant and the comfort grip gives you easy control of the pen. It's also great for faux stitching and decorative accents.
Sanding blocks gently shave cardstock. Use them to smooth out card stock that has a ragged edge, or for perfect for scraping the top edges for that cool distressed look. Set of two in a package.
SNAIL stands for Simple, Neat, Affordable, In-line, adhesive. Your hands and your work don't get sticky where you don't want them to, and a small amount creates a strong, permanent bond so the cartridge of 472 inches of double-sided adhesive lasts a long time. Great for cards, scrapbooks and many art projects.
Great for layering, Stampin' Dimensionals give you instant 3-D effects. With over 300 foam-mounted pieces in each package you'll have lots of opportunity to lift up greetings and elements on your cards and scrapbook pages…and to attach tags, felt pieces, flowers and other embellishments.
Odorless, permanent and acid-free…and economical on top of it. Safe and easy for the kids to use, yet strong enough for discerning crafters. I love the rectangular shape that allows me to get all those square corners on my projects.
This is one of my favorite tools and is a perfect gift for anyone who embosses or glitters. Keep unwanted flecks of embossing powder or glitter from sticking where you don't want it with an easy swipe of the Buddy. Works great on all kinds of paper and other surfaces, too.
Other items you might consider in the Under $5 category are:
Various embossing powders, bottom of pg. 190
Metal-edged tags, bottom of pg. 187
Clear Buttons, bottom of pg. 187
Any color of 1/4 inch Grosgrain Ribbon, pg. 186
