CHA Summer 2013 | School Colors: Lion Brand, Clearsnap

If you are looking to create team color items, you have some new options now thanks to Lion Brand and Clearsnap’s product introductions at Create-n-Connect in Las Vegas.

Lion Brand

Fall means football season, and bundling up for games. With the new school color yarns from Lion Brand, you can make your own hats, mittens, scarves, and even sweaters to wear to root on your favorite college team! The yarns are the latest additions to Lion’s Hometown USA yarn line. The bulky weight yarns are 100% acrylic, and available in 12 color schemes.

These two color schemes are familiar to any Michigan resident!


Here’s how a few of them look sampled into swatches:

If ink is more of what you need in your school colors, ColorBox has something for you! At Create-n-Connect, they released a selection of NCAA-licensed items.


First up is the stamps – two different versions for each school in the line, a tin set and a rollagraph version.


But of course you need inks to go with stamps, and there’s two different versions of those as well. There’s a dye inkpad (left, below) and a tattoo ink inkpad (right, below)  for temporary use on skin. Combine the tattoo pad with the stamp set and you can create festive game day face wear!


CHA Summer 2011: Clearsnap

There are certain companies we can always count on as stampers to produce rich, vibrant pigments.  Clearsnap consistently creates products you can count on, and we bet these new releases are no exception.

 This Color carrier is perfect for your Clearsnap ink pads.
The pads are held in place by this rubber carrier that grips and holds up to 7 inkpads snugly.
New Designer foils in “limeburst” and “pink punch”.
Perfect for your most electric holiday projects!

flexible base to make holding the pad comfortable.

CHA Summer: Clearsnap

Have you heard about Smooch? We saw Clearsnap’s water-based shimmering liquid inks in several booths today at CHA Summer. In January, Clearsnap released Smooch and Smooch Mist to vendors in 8 colors.

This summer they’ve released an additional 8 colors, bringing the line to 16 bright, vivid liquids in cute little bottles with a nail polish like application. They have also released Smooch Mists to coordinate with the original 8 colors.

Smooch works on paper, wood, polymer clay, and probably others that I did not get to see today.

Not only did Clearsnap tell us about Smooch, we also got to see newly released glitter colors, design adhesives, sparkle fibers, and both wide and narrow Rollagraphs.
