We’ve searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And we’ve found it. We’re excited to announce that we now have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps! The new photopolymer will be an addition to our stamp line. Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let’s just say they’re meant for each other!

What makes them so great?

  • They’re entirely transparent for perfect placement every time!
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last.
  • Can you say sticky? (Don’t worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They’re age tested. They won’t yellow or cloud up over time.
  • They use FDA, food-safe material. How far can you stretch your stamping creativity?
  • We could go on, but we’ll let you try them for yourself.

This stamp set is offered on a trial basis and there will be other photopolymer stamp sets available in the future.  All photopolymer sets will be packaged in cello bag w/insert, but don’t forget you can store them in our clear cases.

  • We recommend clear block sizes A, B, G, F, and I (not included in the set).
  • Our photopolymer stamps offer a versatile all-clear stamping option.
  • Our top-quality photopolymer stamps give a perfectly stamped image every time.
  • Best of all, you get to enjoy tons of images for a great price!  (In fact, I’m getting two so I can spell out “miss you”, “get well”, “happy birthday” on one block!  Perfect!)

And, check it out, they are pliable too!

Collage Curios I Love Paris In the Springtime

collage curios paris birthday card

This birthday card just makes me want to sing “I Love Paris in the Springtime.”  The eiffel tower from the Stampin’ Up! Collage Curios stamp set takes center stage but the swirly background from the Hearts a Flutter tag helps it along the way.

Each tag was stamped and then punched out with the Postage Stamp punch and popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I loved using the 2011-13 In Colors for a perfect spring color palette: Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party and Whisteria Wonder with a little Pink Pirouette added in.

Happy Birthday is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and cut out with the matching Bitty Banners Framelit Die.  I showed a sneak peek of this card over on Facebook a couple of weeks ago.

Bloomin’ Marvelous Color Chalk Butterflies

bloomin' marvelous chalkboard butterfly card 2

This little butterfly number features two exclusive Sale-a-bration products the Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set & Vine Street Embossing Folder.  The card base is made with Crumb Cake cardstock, embossed with the Vine Street Embossing Folder and splattered with a little Melon Mambo reinker.

To create the butterfly panel, I started with Basic Black cardstock and rubbed it lightly with the Whisper White Craft Pad.  After heat setting the craft ink, I prepared the panel with the Embossing Buddy and then stamped a couple of butterflies with VersaMark.

I heat embossed the first set of butterfles with the Melon Mambo embossing powder, then stamped a couple of more butterflies, heat embossed that set with Tangerine Tango embossing powder.  And then finally stamped a couple of more butterflies and heat embossed with the Pool Party embossing powder

One butterfly was stamped on a scrap of basic black, heat embossed, punched out with the Bitty Butterfly punch and blinged up with a little rhinestone.

If you look closely, you’ll see that I scored a couple of lines on the top and bottom edges of the butterfly panel with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.  I also ran the edges across the versamark pad and heat embossed it with Tangerine Tango embossing powder.

Feeling Sentimental Bicycle Card

feeling sentimental bicycle card I love this Sale-a-bration Sentimental Journey Stamp Set .  And it’s only available during SAB.  (SAB ends March 22nd.)  This stamp set has so much detail and charm that it makes it quick and easy to create a lovely greeting card.

The Tangerine Tango ribbon in the  SAB Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button pack inspired my color choice.  And the First Edition Specialty paper is the perfect fit for the style and feel of this stamp set.  The bicycle was stamped with Versamark and Early Espresso, and clear embossed on Crumb Cake cardstock.

The Sentiment was stamped and embossed on Tangerine Tango and matted with matching Early Espresso cardstock. The Tangerine Tango ribbon, which is fabulous, is easy to work with and the perfect touch. And rhinestone adds that just a little bit something extra.
