Astounding Quality Acrylic Stamps

I am joyously blown away by the quality of the 3 acrylic stamps I got in the mail today. (Almost made up for a $50.00 package that didn't make it to where it was supposed to; a Grrrrr! goes out to Priority Post.)

They work with all of my Stampin' Up? craft inks (stamp'n'spots) AND even my Stamp'n'Write Markers!!!! They are by Stampendous and Doodlebug design. Stamped like a dream! They were way less expensive than my FancyPants ones (though you get a greater number in the Fancypants kit.)

This is the great Stampendous "Petal Plus" set that I used to make the butterfly:

I love the flexibility of it, especially the phrases. Other than its standard sentiments, you can make "happy hello," " hello birthday friend," "happy birthday Hello," "Smile birthday friend"... ;0)

Looking forward to making flowers & a dragonfly! It'll be a great for emboss resist. The curly cues on the butterfly will also echo swirlies in my Fancypants & Autumn Leaves sets (Can you tell I'm stoked?) :0D

Here's is Stampendous's "Typewriter Wishes" Set; can't wait to play with it:

For the card above: "Certain Celery" & "Tempting Turq." c.s., vellum, & Basic Grey "Bubblegum" (Lollipop Shoppe LOL-184.) I used my Giga punch, SU circle punches & flowers ("center kisses" (Prima Marketing.) The image is embossed with "Elegant Eggplant" craft ink & clear e.p. & coloured with Stamp'n'Write markers. The faux stained glass is made with Crystal Effects. Takes a while to dry--and I can NEVER wait, but it adds a lot of shine.


Thanks for taking a peek!
