Beautiful Brayer Technique

 I attended one of my upline's meetings this morning and we made two cards using the brayer technique Michelle Zindorf is known for. Both of these samples were projects from one of her classes Janice attended and created. The technique is relatively simple to do believe it or not. I am so thrilled with the way these two cards turned out!

This one reminds me of Hawaii. I just love the colors as well as the black accents that just set off that rich color. I'm not sure if you can see it, but we used a white gel pen to add accents on the grass, trees, and the water. Very cool use of the gel pen. I will be looking through my stash to find a set or two that I can use to make one of these lovely cards. I don't own the Serene silhouettes set used in both of these cards, but seeing how nice these turned out, I may have to pick them up. 

I hope you enjoyed my cards today. I will be posting more as the days go by. So much is going on with SU these days it's difficult for me to keep up with it all. I have lots of new stuff to play with and will be posting samples soon. Leave me a note and let me know what you think of my latest cards. Special thanks to Janice for hosting the meeting today and sharing the technique with us!
Happy Stamping!

New! Clear Photopolymer stamps coming!!

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 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! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options. 
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. 
  • We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.
They are clearly a great choice.

132956Designer Typeset Photopolymer Stamp Set
Recommend clear blocks A, B, G, F, and I. Purchase separately.
Includes 57 pieces. (Don't faint! This is a good overwhelming feeling.)

The Fine Print
  • Photopolymer stamps will be offered on a trial basis. Based on popularity, we hope to release more photopolymer stamp sets over the coming months. At this time we don't plan on offering a line of photopolymer sets as expansive as our wood-mount and clear-mount lines.
  • Available on all order types beginning March 1, 2013. 
  • Not available in wood-mount or clear-mount.  
  • All photopolymer will be packaged in cello bag w/insert, but don't forget you can store them in our clear cases.
Try one out today by ordering your set Here.


As part of our 25-year anniversary celebration, we're bringing back some of our
favorite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into 12 sets, 
which will release-on set per month-during 2-2013. Even better, along with some great 
classic images, each "Best of" set will also include a never-before-seen image! 

Some things to remember:
  • All Best of stamp sets will include 3-5 images, including a never-before seen 
  • image, and will be priced at $14.95.
  • While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month (with a new theme each month), all of the Best of sets will be
  •  available until March 31, 2014.
  • A new flyer will be released every month for each new Best of set.
  • All Best of stamp sets are available in Clear-Mount only.
While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month, all of the Best of sets will be
available until March 31, 2014.
As a special incentive to collect the Best of stamps, we're including a collector's card and
25-year proof of purchase sticker with every Best of set. Collect six stickers, and 
send it in to redeem a FREE set of your choice valued up to $14.95! Free sets must be 
redeemed no later than April 30, 2014.
