Photopolymer Stamping Tricks

By | 06/19/2016

Photopolymer stamps have become my favorite stamps to use.  They just have so many advantages.

  1. They cost less than wood mount or clear mount rubber stamps.
  2. I can see what I’m stamping and where I’m stamping it because they are see through.  As a result, they are easier to line up and fit in small spaces.
  3. If I don’t stamp a great image, I can try again because I can see through the stamp to line it up with the original image.
  4. I can store 2 sets of photopolymer in the same amount of space it takes to store 1 wood mount set.
  5. I can bend them into curves!

That is the trick I’m doing today:  bending them into a curve!

This is a great stamp set called Best Birds.  You can purchase it as a bundle with the Birds and Blooms thinlets dies for your Big Shot and save 10% by purchasing them together.

You can see from the picture that the branch image has a little curve to it to begin with.  I gently curved it into an “L” shape and then stamped it twice to create a wreath or rectangular shape that is perfect for a small sentiment.  I added some red flowers with the small flower images for a pop of color.  I also used my markers to ink up the stamp so I could use more than one color on the single stamp.

I’ve created a video tutorial with all of the card details:
