Everyone have a great holiday? I know I am ready to hit the sale racks today and start shopping. I’ve already picked out some items for next years and I want to get on sale. Do you do this too?
Onto more sneak peeks from the new catalog coming out January 4th.
This is a one layer card, meaning I only used one piece of paper. I took a scrap piece of paper that already had a circle cut out from it from another card. The circle was cut out using the circles collection framelits on the Big Shot machine.
So I used this circle as a stencil and held it down with some old washi tape so that it wouldn’t move.
Then, I simply stamped inside that circle until I liked the look of it. Then I lifted off the stencil. Because the washi tape is like painters tape, it will lift right off your paper without ever leaving a mark. After I lifted off the stencil, I stamped the “happy birthday”. Now, I want to let you know something that I have just discovered.
This stampset is photopolymer. Some people don’t like the image of photopolymer stamps because they claim the inked image isn’t crisp and spreads a little bit on the paper. So was Stampin’ Up! released a new black ink called “Archival”. The Archival ink, as you can see- leaves a nice crisp black image from the photopolymer stamps. And the black is super dark which I love! The only thing I wanted like to give you a tip about is not to touch this ink for a good minute after you stamp. It needs a little more time to dry.
