Three products we love!!

One of the fun things we do at Flourishes is to try out new (and old!) products prior to deciding if we want to carry them in the store. We figure if we like them and actually USE them then there must be other paper crafters who will like them as well. We've just added three products to the store and want to share what we like about them.

The first is Eclipse Tape...for those of you who use this product, then you know how good it is. For those of you who aren't familiar with it, here are some of the details...

You know how when you want to make a mask when you are stamping? If you are like most of us, you get out a "post-it" note and attempt to stamp the image where the "sticky" part of the post-it is, so that the mask will stay put when you use it. After awhile the mask tends to get torn and you will need to make another. Eclipse tape is a material that is a bit heavier than a post-it note, but the BEST part is that it has the non permanent adhesive completely covering the back! It's so easy to use - just stamp your image, cut it out, use it as a mask and then keep it with the stamp for future use! You can also use it to make stencils and non permanent stickers. This product is so much better than post-it notes!

Next is the Stardust clear gelly roll pen. I must admit that I use this on so many cards. It's perfect when you want just a touch of sparkle to your cards - no messy glitter - and the pen provides is a nice 0.5mm line of sparkle.

Last, but not least is a new product released at CHA by Ranger - the Inkssentials White Opaque pen. Doodle, draw, write and scribble!! Filled with a bright, white opaque pigment ink this pen is great for doodling, accenting stamped projects and journaling on colored papers. Highlight pre-printed embellishments and scrapbook papers to make them pop!

We hope you like these products as much as we do!
