Saying it your way with a free SU stamp set

If you're a regular here you know that I'm a huge fan of my stamp-a-majig, a great device that enables you to place images and sentiments where you want them on your projects. For some reason, individual letter stamps are trickier to line up 100% accurately though and that's where photopolymer stamps really come into their own. It's a doddle to line them up properly because you can see exactly where you're stamping, and you can even line them up on the block first. I tried out Stampin' Up's free Sans and Stripes photopolymer set today - come and see:

The set comes with a set of solid and a set of striped letters as well as a few extras. I lined the solid letters up on acrylic block C before stamping and added the extra 'E' afterwards. It was easy peasy and of course I could say whatever I liked! My daughter introduced 'squee' into my life and I use it whenever I used to say "I know, isn't it cute?!" It's become such a part of our shared vocabulary that I sometimes worry that it'll pop out when I'm talking to the head of the children's school or something!

I cut my sentiment out with one of the Word Bubbles framelits, mounted it onto a scrap of coral card and cut round it. The dotty background was made by repeat-stamping the solid 'O' in the set.

STOP PRESS: Since scheduling this post, I have since found out that Sans and Stripes has been so popular that there are no sets left! Customers making orders of £60 or more can still choose a free photopolymer set from these three fabulous designs.

I used the gorgeous colours at The Paper Players challenge to make this card.

Squee crept into our vocabulary as just a noise at first so I thought it was spelt with an 'a' on the end which amused my daughter no end. Now it's become an adjective - things are 'quite squee' or even 'squee-ish'. The other day, while we were cooking together, my daughter caught my eye and said: "Ghee? More like squee - am I right?!"

See you tomorrow,
