Oh WOW! What can I say about the brand new Flower Patch stamps and coordinating Flower Fair Framelits, they are AMAZING! Back in June when I first saw the new Annual Catalogue these products were the ones that I wanted, I HAD TO HAVE! Now they are here and I am very happy girl. 🙂
The Flower Patch stamps are made from Photopolymer. (See photo above) Photopolymer new for our catalogue this year (whoop!) and are completely see through stamps which cling to an acrylic block. You must take note that when using these stamps, they may change colour due to the ink you use. Once I’d finished using them I popped them in soapy water and left them to dry.
The Flower Patch stamps are slightly different to other stamps because they use a technique called two-step stamping. Two-step stamping means that you use two stamps, and two inks to create the finished look. The image above shows this technique beautifully, but using three colours. Starting with the lightest ink, then stamping with a darker shade and last a darker shade in the centre. I love this set so much because the colour combination possibilities are endless!
AND as if that wasn’t enough, the Flower Patch stamps and framelits are available as a 15% off bundle! THANK YOU SU!
