I have some very, very exciting news to share with you today! I have been working very closely with Whimsy Stamps to bring a brand new line and style of stamps and coordinating dies to the Whimsy Stamps shelves ...
Photopolymer Clear Stamps
The idea for adding clear stamps to Whimsy began many months ago when I was designing some sentiments for a future rubber release. I was in the middle of designing one particular set, and I just felt that it would work much better if it was a clear set. So I pitched the idea to Denise ... and well, the rest, as they say, is history, lol! Denise and I have been working very hard behind the scenes to bring this new line to you. I have been heavily involved in every stage from designing to marketing, and have even designed all the brand new packaging! :) So I really, really hope you like them.
Our plan is to release clear stamps every other month in the months that Whimsy is not releasing red rubber stamps, and we will start the bimonthly releases in April! Our April release is a lot bigger than this March release and I cannot wait to show it to you!!
So a little bit about the actual stamps.... Our clear stamps are manufactured in the USA and are made from the highest quality photopolymer resin, which means they print just like traditional rubber stamps with a sharp quality impression. As they are completely clear, they have the added value of allowing you to see the area where you are stamping. Our manufacturer boasts the “highest quality clear stamps in the industry” and also uses a special patented formula of polymer that resists yellowing. In the UK,we are used to clear stamps that are, quite frankly, not that great quality. These are usually acrylic stamps - stretchy, non-clingy, ink-pools-on-the-surface rubbish! The type of stamp you may receive "free" with a magazine! I can assure you that these new Whimsy Stamps clear stamps are NOT like that at all - they are completely different and of the highest quality.
We will reveal the entire release on Wednesday, but for today we are introducing Feeling Fruity, designed by me! These are stamps primarily suited to stamping rather than colouring. The style is quite clean and simple, so perfect for all you CAS lovers.

Unfortunately I don't have a card to share today, as my stamps are still in transit - somewhere between the USA and here, lol! I am crossing everything very tightly that they arrive today so that I can get inky and have something for tomorrow.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
