Reveal Day #2 at Stamp School

Today is Reveal Day #2 at Stamp School! Today I want to share a little bit more about the two of the products, and tomorrow I will share about two more.

Cardstock:
Poptone Cardstock from Stamp School is a heavy 100lb cover weight cardstock.  It works brilliantly for card bases.  However, we suggest you score your cardstock before you fold it.  It's just THAT heavy weight!  The Poptone Cardstock cuts beautuifully with any diecut machine and die, even the wafter thin steel rule dies from My Favorite Things or Spellbinders.  It has matching dye inks, and matching wool felt.

The Sweet Tooth is now my heavier weight white cardstock of choice! I love the weight and quality.

Felt:
Soft to the touch yet sturdy, Stamp School felt is a medium-weight 100% merino wool, imported from Holland.  Be forewarned, once you craft with it you'll have a hard time ever going back to a blend or acrylic.  Approximately 14oz. per linear yard (36x72 inches) and 1mm thick, almost 1/16 inch.  Our felt is not flammable, and safe for babies and children. 

I am in love with this felt! It is the softest, nicest quality felt I have ever worked with!

Today my card uses the Natural Landscape set:
I used two of Tim Holtz's Distress inks to create my background: Spun Sugar and Antique Linen. The images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. 

Be sure to check out all Stamp School has to offer, and take a look at what my fellow Faculty members have created to show you today:
Stamp School Owner Lisa will be highlighting her creations on the Stamp School blog, so head on over there to see all the excitement! Sneak Peek #3 coming up tomorrow!
