If you want you can rub Chocolate Chip craft ink into the cracks to make them more pronounced and the glass will look kind of vintage. It's really cool--worth the work!
Thank you so much! I can't wait to try it!!!

The strength of your language is very interesting to me. I am missing why you have such a strong opinion about this. Not saying your opinion is wrong, it just seems to be very strongly held and I'm wondering why. Honestly no offense meant, I just hate to not be clued in. : )

It is my understanding that the SU stampers want a place here to call their own, not Stampin Up. There is a difference between a direct sales company like Stampin Up and the member companies on SCS.

SCS is big enough for all of us to enjoy.

Am I right that none of the direct-sales companies are SCS member companies? So SU is not doing anything out of the ordinary by not being one, correct? Just wondering. I haven't seen a TAC, CMTH, CM or whatever one but I haven't paid much attention, truth be told.

There must be a reason for this. These companies aren't stupid--if they felt like it was beneficial or whatever, they'd have done it by now, right?

that would be really nice!

someone mentioned in an earlier reply to just keep starting 'positive SU! threads'...

well the last one i saw about someone who posted a couple cards she made with SU! DSP and was so delighted at how simple it is to work with SU! products...

there are always people who have to chime in with the negative SU! remarks! it really is hard to have a truly 'positive' SU! thread around here it seems!

i'm just sayin'!

OK... stepping down

Default ink pad labels

Does anyone know if SU still carries labels for the new "in colors" of ink pads. I have about 32 that are not identified on the end.

Just love a place I can go to for help after hours.

To clue you in:

In spite of so many new companies at SCS in recent years, and in spite of the sale of SCS, the members whose connection to SCS is through SU seem to have either forgotten or disregarded the fact that this is no longer connected to SU in any way.

There is a disparaging tone to many of the SU enthusiastic posts in this thread. They bemoan the loss of the SUO atmosphere, and complain about the member company threads. It is the member companies who are footing the bill for keeping SCS open!

There is, in some of the posts, even a sense of entitlement- like SU users somehow deserve to have their own area.

Other stamping companies have provided places for their fans to talk about their products- here, through the member companies, with Yahoo groups, with forums on their sites, etc. I haven't read anyone demanding a Hero Arts Only forum, or a Whiff of Joy Only forum or an Impression Obsession Only forum. By what right do SU users think that they deserve special treatment here?

When I want to talk exclusively about one stamp company I go to the site that company provides- and every stamp company I order from does provide such an outlet for me. I don't expect to find that here.

My language is a result of the language I've read here. You yourself said that you wanted to "reclaim the forums"- certainly a territorial commentary if ever I read one. The forums are not yours (either you personally or the SUO people) to reclaim!

I have nothing against SU- I own a lot of their stamps myself. They were very savvy- they got years of massive online support and marketing with no effort and no cost outlay. That's smart business. But now that SCS is independently owned, SU has no more stature here than any other stamp company which is not a member company.

If SU customers want a happy SUO place, then SU should be providing it. It is not SCS's responsibility.

Does that "clue you in"?

Default ENOUGH ALREADY

The OP started this thread in a very nice, positive way so if we can just do that. There's just too much threads & postings that have caused soo much negativety when it comes to SU & other companies; those who like & does not like SU.

As what the OP said on the 1st page, a place/thread to show your CREATIONS, IDEAS & ARTISTRY. Let's start to create, share ideas & be artistic.

Aloha!!!

Uh, I hope I'm not doing anything wrong by posting this, but there's a great SUO site: www.stampinaddicts.com that has lots of galleries, forums, etc. that are all SU! Great challenges, contests, discussions, etc. Check it out.

Does someone have a card or something to share with this. I guess I am just not visualizing it but since I am getting my SU order ready to go in I want to know more so I can see if I can add just one more thing to my order. BTW thank you for explaining it---the instructions are clear I just don't know what it looks like in the end.

Bound4london - CAmomof2 linked to a beautiful card she made with this technique. If my copying her link here doesn't work - her link is in post # 62.

Thanks Jan! Guess I missed it---I should be sleeping not on line so I think I will head to bed now. That is a beautiful card. I am always so impressed by everyone's creativity and hope to improve my crafting by following peoples leads.

Almost any technique that you're looking for, such as the cracked glass technique, can be found here in the Resources section or the master thread of the Technique Lovers Challenge posted every Monday.

From what I understand, SU has in the works a community forum, much like this. Until it becomes available, I don't see a problem with starting SU only threads, but SU chooses not to be a member company. I agree that SCS is doing SU a huge courtesy by still having private demo forums here, which is why SCS started in the first place; that alone shows me that SCS has not lost their "roots."

You can start threads about almost anything here but I think that asking SCS to provide an SU only forum for their customers is unfair.

Geeze! This is just a FRIENDLY SU discussion, why do people like you think you have to come to posts like this and

If you don't like the suggestion that the OP was making than be on your way....your ugly comments are not wanted here!

That's what I would like to see.

And given the horrible negative posts here, I'd appreciate if those people that don't like SU products kept their comments to themselves in such threads.

Sorry- I'm not going anywhere.

So, pointing out that SU people are expecting special treatment is causing trouble? Well, I guess for you maybe it is.

My comments are not "ugly" they are reality. And, they are in response to comments that complain about the companies, and customers, who DO keep SCS going. They are in response to an attitude of entitlement that is both out of place and ludicrous.

What I said was very simple- SU has no role anymore at SCS. SU people can have their own SUO place whenever SU provides it for them. SCS is not only not obligated to provide it for them, it would be blatantly unfair to the member companies who pay to support SCS if they did provide it.

Sorry, but pointing out the obvious and TRUE cannot be accurately called "causing trouble".

Telling the truth is horrible, huh?

As I stated in previous posts, I own SU products. I have nothing against SU or its products.

I simply was seriously offended by the comments in this thread that indicated that there are those here who feel that they are entitled to special treatment because they are SU demos or SU users.

Start all the SUO threads you like. Talk about SUO forever. No problem as long as the SUO folks don't complain about the member companies who pay to keep SCS open and their threads, or talk about "reclaiming" what is not theirs to reclaim!

Use SCS as much as you like- but with the realization that every other stamp company out there has the same standing. SU is NOT special here.

I just stopped by that site and it's pretty impressive - lots of familiar faces, and lots and lots of SU. Thanks for sharing!

Sarah- I fully agree that SCS is big enough for all of us to enjoy.

My point is that "SU stampers want a place here to call their own". Why would they think they should have it? Other than the member companies, does any other stamp company get a place of its own here?

I don't care how many SUO threads there are here. What offended me was the idea that somehow SUO folks thought they SHOULD have special treatment here- a "place of their own".

Regardless of the sales model, SU is a stamp company and is not a member company. Its fans need to use SCS the same way that fans of any stamp company that is not a member company do.

I have no problem with SU- I use some of their products myself. And I understand that it is not SU, the company, that is the issue here. It is those who think they are special, and should be treated as such, just because they use SU, who are the problem.

Thanks for sharing that card, it is beautiful! I have never ventured into the cracked glass technique, don't know why. In fact, I have never tried half of the techniques posted.....guess I get comfortable with my tried and true techs.

I know there are challenges out there for folks like me but, there's no one here in my studio kicking me in the butt to try them! LOL!

Now I am going to have to try cracked glass, thanks for the link to that card. I have seen it off and on, but haven't attempted to do it yet.

Oh, you had to go and link to that site! Splitcoast is bad enough. I really don't need another stamping destination on the internet

BTW thank you for explaining it---the instructions are clear I just don't know what it looks like in the end.
We have a separate gallery under Technique Spotlight for this technique:

Cracked Glass Gallery

Like you said, it limits my options in a good way!
Ditto. I love the way everything matches, it makes it effortless to buy!

Post Let's get going!

So, I think you have enough feedback to know that many people are interested in a SUO thread. We get why we can't have a forum. Why not just start a new thread - SUO or SU Lovers Only or what have you and leave the negative talk behind?

I'm here and waving Hi!

When Elaine contacted me a little bit ago about a way for SU! customers to talk about SUO stuff, I suggested she start a thread rather than us opening a forum for SUO fan conversations. Anyone can begin a thread about anything here, and if more SUO topics are wanted, it's up to our community to start 'em and keep 'em going.

Want to know how to do the Cracked Glass technique with SU! products? Start a thread asking that in our techniques forum! Interested in the difference between SU! Classic and Pigment inks? Start a thread asking about it here in General Stamping. It's easy, I promise. If you know of a way to do ___ with SU! products, by all means, share when people ask how to do ___!

P.S. Ongoing chat threads are cool, but stuff does sometimes get skipped over. New threads are an awesome way to get quick answers!

There are only six Member Company threads on the first page at any given time. If you'd like to not see them, there are instructions stickied at the top of this forum.

Actually, we've done that for you already! Click on Stampin' Up! Galleries at the top of the gallery page. The top row is full of SUO-keyworded cards, and if you click "More" on the purple bar, you'll get tons of inspiration!

Ah, but SU! has had and does have a role here! Have you ever read the history of Splitcoast? Check it out here,
and here, and here, and here. This part, especially,

Will anybody care about Stampin' Up! demos anymore?
Most certainly! SU! demos and customers will always have a home at Splitcoast. Always. We grew as a community in the early days for one reason: you loved what you found here, and you told your friends. We've changed over the last 5 years in many ways, but in other ways the only thing that's different is the date on the calendar. SU! is resident in our DNA here at Splitcoast, plain and simple. Thank you so much for your years of loyalty and support for Splitcoast.
Hope that helps.

Thanks Jen. I didn't know the whole history, so that was a very interesting read for me!

Love this part, especially the DNA reference, hehe:

Most certainly! SU! demos and customers will always have a home at Splitcoast. Always. We grew as a community in the early days for one reason: you loved what you found here, and you told your friends. We've changed over the last 5 years in many ways, but in other ways the only thing that's different is the date on the calendar. SU! is resident in our DNA here at Splitcoast, plain and simple. Thank you so much for your years of loyalty and support for Splitcoast.

Thanks again for sharing the history. Good stuff!
