...and so I could justify my new stamp set purchase, I decided to try and make a Halloween card with the trees stamp from the White Christmas set:
The bats were made using a butterfly punch - the smaller of the two offered by SU. After punching out a small butterfly in black card stock, you go back in for a second punch over the top space left by the first punch. Just punch it again to make a bat! It's a similar idea to the one shown in the pin below, but I like to save a step and cut out one butterfly first (discard that butterfly), then go back and punch again at the top of the void left by the first punch --- so much easier than gluing the first butterfly to a piece of paper then going in to punch it again! Another multi-use idea for a punch I already have - SCORE!
I'm so happy that SU is starting to do some sets in the photopolymer/clear stamps! I did some searching on Pinterest for cards using their sets featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog. First up....here's what I found for their White Christmas set:
...and here are some samples using the Endless Wishes set:
I've found that these clear photopolymer sets work best with VersaFine inks...however, they do need quite a bit of drying time before handling.
