WOOHOO!! it's time to blog hop again!!!!


yes!!
it is time again for a hop around some fabulous esad stampin up demos 
and check out what stampin up have on offer from the 
new 2014/15  inspire create share catalogue
this new catalogue introduces photo polymer stamps to our range of wooden and clear mount sets.
i am a wood girl myself but after seeing the price and having a play i am suspecting that i may be buying more of these than i thought possible because they are so easy to use, easy to clean, durable, stick to my mounting blocks like gloves and are cool!
now if you have been coming here on a regular basis you know that my family are a bunch of nerdy geeks!
we love sci-fi, technology and anything geeky.
hence why i have chosen a timey wimey doctor who theme in preparation for the new doctor appearing on our screens in late august
-oh my-
i have goosebumps already lol
so the photo polymer stamp set i want to show you is the back to basics alphabet on page 98 of the catalogue (RRP $27.95 AUD)
this comes in capital and lower case letters and numbers.
you can stick them to your clear mount blocks to make words
 but the only downfall is you only get one of each letter but it is easy to line them up 
having said that i am a bit of a 
free-hander kinda girl 
so mine are a bit wibbly wobbly lol
i used the alphabet rotary stamp from page 191 of the catalogue.(rrp$25.95 AUD)
this stamp has been chomping on some serious steroids and has 13 wonderful spaces for letters to make words and phrases never before possible!
now this stamp is VERY cool 
but it does come with a user warning of making sure 
that you are stamping 
on a level surface 
so that you get crisp clean messages 
every time. 
i also wipe off any extra ink 
from the spaces 
between words before stamping down
here i stamped onto white card in a variety of colours 
and then cut them out to stick onto the black card
here i used the stamp as a background stamp with versamark and embossing powders
here i used it straight to the card (not for the  fainthearted can i just say)
as a love note for my sweetie

I like what you have done with these sets. Great idea with the rotary stamp.

These are great cards. I am not much of a perfectly lined up letters either. I kinda like the letters here and there, makes the cards look cute and quirky...my style.
