Curvy Bordering Blooms


Have you noticed that Stampin' Up! have introduced Photopolymer stamps in the new Catalogues? They are a fabulous new stamping option.  You may have tried photopolymer stamps before and been unimpressed with the results, but you won't be unimpressed with our new range.  They have been specifically designed to work with our inks, so you can wave goodbye to splotchy, patchy stamped images. Yay!

Another great advantage of the photopolymer stamps is that they are flexible and can be bent into different shapes.  On this card I bent the floral border stamp into a curve to wrap around the Thanks sentiment.  I think it looks great, and was certainly a 'wow' amongst the ladies who made this card with me.

We stamped the image in Momento ink and coloured the image with Blendabilities.  One thing to be careful of when you bend the stamp is to make sure it doesn't buckle, as it means you will probably end up with ink on the buckle which will transfer to your cardstock.

On the inside I reverted the stamp back to it's original, straight form.  Which way do you like the stamp? Bent or straight?

Bye for now,
