There is a brand new stamp set just released today! It is a photopolymer stamp set called Banner Blessings. (Photopolymer is just the fancy word for clear stamps, you can see through them.)
You can see it on the Stampin' Up! website here: Banner Blessings
On the Stampin' Up! blog there are a number of cards created by the artist who designed this set. I liked some of her ideas. You can see them here.
I really like the idea of scripture verses on cards. I also like these verses quite well. Another thing I really like about these is that they look like chalk! How adorable!
The only thing I do not like, and I will say this very quietly: I wish they were wood mount. My customers know this quite well already. And the ones who prefer the photopolymer shake their heads. That's okay. It just seems fussy to me when I have to find the clear block that fits, then peal the stamp off the acetate, put onto block, ink, stamp, clean, peel off & put both block & stamp away. And you cannot even just throw into the container like a wood mount!
Yes, the photopolymer stamp sets costs less. That is a huge bonus for these stamps. And you don't have to know how to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig to position your image where you want it. You can see through the block & stamp & all!
But sigh, they only come in photopolymer. So if I like the stamp set enough, I will buy it.
What are your favorite stamps? Do you prefer to spend less & have lots? Or are you like me & they need to work like you want them too? I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter,
