Stampin' Up!'s Angel Policy

Attention Craft Vendors!

As we near the Fall and Holiday Craft Show season, let's review the Stampin' Up! Angel Policy. What is an Angel Policy? An Angel Policy is the statement of terms a company requires if you are selling items created with the company's copyrighted products.

Angel Policy
Stampin’ Up! welcomes artists who would like to use Stampin’ Up!’s copyrighted images in their own handmade craftwork and other projects that they produce to sell. Therefore, Stampin’ Up! gives permission in the form of a limited license to use any Stampin’ Up! images for the purpose of creating items for sale, under the following criteria:


 Handmade craftwork created for sale must be personally and individually created by the selling artist and may not be reproduced or copied in any form by any means, graphic, electronic, or mechanical, including photocopying. Mass production, assembly-line construction, production by workers for hire, or syndication of craftwork for sale is strictly prohibited. Digitally created projects intended for sale must be personally created by the selling artist.


 All of Stampin’ Up!’s images are copyrighted, which means that they may not be copied without permission. To help protect the rights granted by these copyrights, all items for sale using Stampin’ Up! images must be marked with one of the images from the official Stampin’ Up! Limited License stamp sets shown in the catalog. SEE BELOW


 There are no quantity limits on handmade, for-sale craftworks that abide by restrictions as stated in this policy. Demonstrators may only sell 150 total individual items per calendar year of printed items digitally created containing Stampin’ Up! images unless other permission has been requested and granted. Calendars, cards, photobooks, or other digitally created projects apply to this limit.


 Completed, handmade, or digitally created (printed) projects may be sold at competitive and non-competitive permanent retail locations, as well as temporary craft events, community fundraisers, and over the internet. In selling handmade or digitally created projects, the seller must make it clear that the items are handmade or personally created by the seller, and not a product of the company. The seller may indicate that the supplies used are from Stampin’ Up!, but the Stampin’ Up! logo may not be used in any way for the sole purpose of promoting the sale of handmade or digitally created projects.

 Demonstrators may not use Stampin’ Up! images for the purpose of creating logos or company trademarks. Individual stamped images must be part of a larger, finished product to be sold.


 Digital files of any type containing Stampin’ Up! images may not be sold under any condition.


 Persons creating handmade or digitally created (printed) items for sale are responsible for complying with any state and local business and tax regulations.


 Persons participating in this Angel Policy assume all liability for suitability of their work and agree to indemnify Stampin’ Up! from disputes arising from their work.

Blending Brushes #153611

20220814_085430

Have you tried Stampin' Up!'s Blending Brushes #153611? They are fun and amazing! I used the brushes with the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks #159178. You might also call these "stencils."

 

20220811_182418

Simply collect ink on your brush, directly from an ink pad. Secure the mask over your card stock. Use light pressure on your brush to apply the ink. Heavier pressure will increase your color intensity. I wanted a SOFT application for backgrounds. Color does not have to be perfectly even. Let it vary for some for interest!

 

20220814_085500

This is one of my favorite stamp sets, Sending Smiles Bundle #158707.  Note how I curved the sentiment. It's easy to do with pliable photopolymer stamps!

 

20220814_085448

Try sponging!! Check back because more sponging will post!
