Freshly Made Sketches #95 with a sneak peek!

I haven't done the past few challenges because I was so busy around the fourth of July, but I liked this week's sketch so much, I did two cards!  Freshly Made Sketches #95-a sketch by Narelle.

I also received my holiday catalog pre-order supplies, so I dug right into them. The first card I did is a fall/Thanksgiving type card.

The card base is Sahara Sand and I used the new Sweater Weather designer series paper (my new favorite!) and Harvest of Thanks stamp set. 

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
Stamp set- Harvest of Thanks
Cardstock- Sahara Sand, Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip
Designer Series Paper- Sweater Weather
Ink- Chocolate Chip
Other- Apothecary Accents framelits, Natural designer buttons, Linen Thread

The second card I did was a Halloween card. It seems too early to be doing a Halloween card, but the back to school supplies are already in the store, so I'm probably ok. 

The base of the card is Very Vanilla and I used the new Witches' Brew designer series paper. 

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
Stamp set- Halloween Bash
Cardstock- Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black
Designer Series Paper- Witches' Brew
Ink- Staz-on

Settin' Sail Photopolymer stamp set

Settin' Sail Photopolymer Stamp Set item #133453 $13.95
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.
