So today's blog post is my application to be a Stampin' Up! display stamper! It would be so cool to see my projects up on the display boards at a future event where other demonstrators crowd around to view and take pictures of the projects! We've been asked to create 3 cards, 1 scrapbook page and 2 3D items and share them all in one post... so here we go:

I love this shimmery butterfly, when the light hits it just right you can see the shimmer even though it may not show very well in the picture. To create the multi-coloured image I used the baby wipe technique.
Stamps: Swallowtail, French Foliage
Ink: Melon Mambo, Whisper White Craft Ink, Ink Refills: Old Olive, Marina Mist and Melon Mambo
Paper: Melon Mambo, Shimmery White

Paper: Perfect Plum, Whisper White, Pool Party

New! Photopolymer Stamps!

March 06, 2013
Stampin' Up has searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And I'm 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 and will appeal to all types of stampers. 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? 
  • They're super inexpensive! Our debut set, Designer Typeset has 57 images for just $16.95.
  • Photopolymer stamps will be offered on a trial basis.
  • All photopolymer will be packaged in cello bag w/insert, but don't forget you can store them in our clear cases.
Photopolymer stamps are going to be released in trendy, hip new designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional stamp lines. Here is an image of the first set available now!
