Almost forgot! There is a new photopolymer stamp set from Stampin’ Up! this month! You’ll find it under “New Arrivals” in my Online Store. It’s called Eye-Catching Ikat Photopolymer Stamp Set. When I first saw this set, I wasn’t too interested, to be honest. Not my type of design. But now that I have a done a little research, since I wasn’t familiar with “ikat” it is a lot more appealing! First of all, “ikat” is pronounced “ee-kot”, not i-kat. Ikat is a fabric where the yarns have been bound in places (much like tie-dye) to resist the dye and then woven together. That’s how they get the interesting patterns. This ikat trend is popular in fashion and in home decorating right now so you’ll be right in style with your papercrafting and stamping as well!
The photopolymer stamps are the clear ones that you can see through that you use with the clear blocks. They are super sticky so stay on the blocks well. Just another option for those who are interested.
If you would like to try out this trendy ikat design, you can purchase these stamps in my Stampin’ Up! Online Store.
