Oh I so love Christmas and all the projects we can make. This Monday Makes is brought to you by Wondrous Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Wondrous Wreath Framelits which come to you as a bundle if you want that at 15% discount. I’ve also used the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack, so keep reading and see the special offer I have just for my Australian readers.
My first card is made to resemble a door with a Christmas Wreath on it.
The Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set is Photopolymer. I love it and it makes 2 and 3 step stamping so easy. The top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and is well-suited for our firm-foam pads. Watch this fun video on Stampin’ Up! Photopolymer Stamp Sets.
My second card is a Gatefold Card with a “pot of plants on the window sill”.
Here’s another view so you can see how the card looks open
Some Questions and Answers about Photopolymer Stamps from Stampin’ Up!
- Why is Stampin’ Up! offering photopolymer stamps now? A. In the past, the photopolymers we’ve tested have been prone to yellowing, cracking, too-soft image stamping, and other problems. We are thrilled that we have finally found a photopolymer product that meets the high standard of quality that we require for Stampin’ Up! products. We think you are going to find that our top-quality photopolymer was worth waiting for!
- How do I clean the photopolymer stamps? A. Use your Stampin’ Scrub and Stampin’ Mist just as you would with any stamps. If they ever get dusty or lose their stickiness, you can wash them in mild soap and water. If you use them with Stazon, you can also use Stazon cleaner on them. But, use it sparingly and make sure you do not leave traces of the cleaner on the stamps after cleaning.
- How do I store the photopolymer stamps? A. They come in a cello bag, between two sheets of acetate. One of the sheets is conveniently printed with the stamp images for storage. Our clear-mount cases work nicely to store them in if you prefer. Store them indoors—don’t leave them sitting out in direct sunlight.
- What kinds of ink can I use with photopolymer stamps? A. Our classic ink in the firm foam pads is the absolute best choice. VersaMark and Stazon are also ok. Make sure you clean your stamps promptly after use to avoid any staining or damage.
- Will the photopolymer stamps stain? A. They are more prone to staining. Basic Gray and red inks seem to be the worst. Try to clean your stamps immediately after use to avoid staining.
- Are the photopolymer stamps made in the US? A. Yes. The photopolymer is shipped from the UK and the manufacturing of the stamps themselves is in the USA
