Because there is always room for innovation, Stampin’ Up! has trademarked a new style of red rubber stamp called Distinktive. Do you remember the Sale-a-bration stamp set called Heartfelt Blooms? Well, it was the first Distinktive stamp set and everyone loved the photo-realism of that red rubber stamp! Now, our amazing Stampin’ Up! designers have created five new Distinktive stamp sets with that same wow factor for creating a monochromatic stamped image with different opacities for realistic dimension, depth and intensity.
The five new Distinktive stamp sets are:
- BOKEH DOTS for unique backgrounds (page 153)
- STYLISH CHRISTMAS for season greetings (page 101)
- ALL THE GOOD THINGS with Japanese symbols of friendship (page 151)
- SEIZE THE DAY for climbing to new heights (page 157)
- HEALING HUGS for sending get well wishes (page 110 & likely the most popular!)
Whether stamped in soft subtles or bold rich colors, these Distinktive stamped images will make your projects stand out! Check out these projects created by Stampin’ Up! Concept Artists using the new Healing Hugs stamp set.
Tips for best results: (1) clean your stamp thoroughly to remove any manufacturing residue; (2) ink your using the middle of the ink pad. Inking stamp along edges of an ink pad may cause ink lines to appear in the final stamped image; (3) if your ink pad is too juicy, the ink may puddle and blur the image. Simply blot your ink pad on scrap paper to remove the excess ink.
Until next time, sending crafting hugs and inspiration wishes!
