Stamps in DA HOUSE Baby!!
Oh Yah! I'm SO excited!! My first OCL stamp sets arrived today! Well, okay, not REALLY my first, but my first sets that are totally put together and finished. We sent out a few sets without the panels to some friends (and me) so that we could have samples made up before the release, so today, I got my sets the same way they arrive to you!
I know Joy and Kimberly worked really hard on these. And, we've had GREAT feedback, but, I had NO IDEA how really cool they would be! Now I know! Totally MADE MY DAY! Joy and Kimberly are BRILLIANT.... BRILLIANT I tell yah. :)
So, this is how they come... The panel is a thick, laminated like plastic. The front side has the images all colored and pretty. This is one out of the bag... you can see that they are also three hole punched so that you can store them in a binder (and we have a system coming soon). They arrive in a nice bag with a triangle loop at the top for those of you who use the Clip It or other hanging system.
Turn it over, and the stamps are clinging to the back! Just peel them off, stick them on an acrylic block and stamp away! When you are done, clean your stamp and stick it back to the panel. How cool is that?
Our Crafty Cling rubber is deeply etched pink rubber... it's beautiful (Okay, so I admit, I might be a TAD biased). Our Crafty Clear arrives the same way! Marianne colored most of the panels, so it's like getting a bonus Copic tutorial to boot!
Oh, and check this out! I stacked six sets! SIX... and look at how little space they take up! THAT floats my boat baby!!
Okay, so if you are still reading... thanks for bearing with my excitement of the day! I have to say, even though my husband thought they were pretty cool too, he just didn't have the enthusiasm I thought he should... so I really needed to share with someone who would KNOW how I felt.
I had a super busy day, so I need to get to work on Beate's sketch for tomorrow. Before I go though, I want to share a coupon code good for tomorrow only!
