Peek-a-BOO! Photopolymer!

Have you made this vow to yourself?
- "I will never buy clear stamps again."
Let me guess... bought a clear stamp set, with the most awesome image, only to get it home and be extremely disappointed? It doesn't stamp well, the lines are squishing and your image is distorted?

Yup, I've been there and done that. I vowed, that no matter how cute the image, I would never waste my money on clear stamps again!
So imagine my inner struggle ;) when Stampin' Up! released some clear stamp sets...
They are cute and all, but...NOPE I'm not doing it,
Well... Stampin' Up! finally did it... They released a photopolymer stamp set that I just couldn't resist... and I had to break my OWN vow...

and I'M SO GLAD I DID!

I should have never doubted Stampin' Up! as they always make sure their product is the best of the best! Stampin' Up! stamps are the best out there, so why would their photopolymer be anything less.

Their Photopolymer stamps are super sticky and very thick! I had no problem stamping with them and was extremely happy with the stamped image! But why believe me? Check out my card to see for yourself!

My card today (which is #3 of my 5 card mailing challenge!) uses the Photopolymer stamp set: Bite Me! I absolutely love the spider web image, which I stamped in Whisper White craft ink on Basic Black card stock.

I know my card seems kind of plain on the outside, but I'm hoping my peek-a-boo "window" makes up for it! I had so much fun doing the peek-a-boo technique on this card, that I just had to do it again!

However, On this card, it's not as obvious to pull on the ribbon - I didn't leave anything sticking out. (My husband proved this to me, when I handed him the card and he was just going to lift up the flap) So I added a little handwritten (YUCK) instruction arrow to my card. Wishing I had the Photopolymer stamp set: Designer Typeset, now! Lol!

If they dare pull on the ribbon, they will reveal a spooky surprise! How fun is that!

For inside my window, I used Black Stazon Ink, Smokey Slate ink (stamped off) and Rich Razzleberry Ink, all stamped on Whisper White card stock!

I added a few rhinestones to give my card a little bit of bling and mounted everything on to Basic Grey card stock.

I hope you like today's card and I hope you'll give Stampin' Up's new photopolymer stamps a try. I promise, you won't be disappointed!

Happy Creating!

  2. Martha, everyday I am delighted by your creativity. You are an awesome artist! Your reluctance to allow a project to be 'good enough' and your commitment to both colour and composition is probably why you create such stunning projects. Keep up the great work! I'm very proud of you!
