Yes, you didn't misread the title! I have been stamping!
I made 30 Relief Society birthday invitations. The LDS Relief Society is THE largest Christian women's (or any womans) organization in the entire world!
The purpose of Relief Society is to help prepare women for the blessings of eternal life by helping them increase faith and personal righteousness, strengthen families and homes, and seek out and help those in need. Women fulfill these purposes as they seek, receive, and act on personal revelation in their lives. Relief Society accomplishes the purposes through Sunday gospel instruction, other Relief Society meetings, visiting teaching, welfare and compassionate service.
I stamped in Night of Navy Classic ink on Whisper White Cardstock using the gorgeous stamp set called Elegant Swallowtail-
Look closely when you click on the next photo-- you can see the fold crease that I stamped over- also the blue papers that they are laying on, are the invite wording I created using My Digital Studio and are printed 4 to a page and cut out for the inside of the invite
Before I did anything else, I sprayed these cards on just the outside with this spray glitter and let them set. DO THIS with a window open! I put 3 at a time in an empty SU box and wondered why I had a headache later- ugh I was just trying to "get them done" this glitter spray added that gorgeous silver glittery shimmer I wanted!
The photos do not do these invitations justice at all- they were so elegant and gorgeous! The ladies loved them! I hope all 30 come to celebrate the birthday of the church Relief Society!
I will definitely be using this card idea in the future. I confess I saw it on Pinterest and was inspired to try it myself!
As women participate in Relief Society, they serve as valiant disciples of Jesus Christ in the work of salvation. They work alongside men who hold the priesthood. Through Relief Society, women practice being disciples of Christ. Women strive to learn what the Lord would have them learn, do what He would have them do, and become what He would have them become.
Have fun stamping!
This funny new set is just what you need for laughs that will last. It's so versatile, you'll find yourself using it over and over again. Recommended clear block sizes are D, G (not included in the set).
Our photopolymer stamps (clear stamps) offer a versatile all-clear stamping option. You'll find that our photopolymer is top-quality and gives a perfectly stamped image every time. The stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks and are easy to place just where you want them. And best of all, you get to enjoy tons of images for a great price!
To order this fabulous new CLEAR stamp set click HERE
I confess, the Clear Photopolymer stamps are my all time favorite stamps that SU has come out with! I just love them and I have never even really "liked" any other clear stamps that I have used or bought before as they just don't have the "clear" image that Stampin Up stamps have.

I love the My Paper Pumpkin Kits! This month- January 2015, we received This adorable Valentine kit:
I used it to create a card for the hubby- shhhhhhhhhh you cannot tell on me!
Each Monthly Paper Pumpkin Kit comes with a Cute Polymer (CLEAR) Stamp. These are lovely pliable clear stamps unlike any other on the market. I wasn't a clear stamp person until Stampin Up! Came up with the Photopolymer Stamps! WOW! I am using them ALL THE TIME now!
As you can see in the photo, there are 3 hearts. I layed them on my cardfront spacing them the way I wanted them and then.....
I layed our largest Clear Block over them and pressed to stick them to it.
I love being able to do this so that I don't have to stamp them 1 heart at a time and get them all spaced wonky that way! This way, I stamped once and it was done! A great timesaver! Especially when making more than 1 card. Had I wanted them spaced at a diagonal I would use the same idea. Lay them out on the card front where I want them and then stick the block to them and then ink and stamp!
I confess that at 5 am today I remembered I needed this project done to post- lol and at that time of day I wasn't thinking so clearly and put the stamp "to the ink" pad and by doing so, got those red ink pad marks on the clear block- UGH!
The BEST way to ink something like this is to lay the block on the table (do not hold it) with the stamps up and then use the ink pad to ink the stamps. This is an especially great method for inking up the larger stamp surfaces!
So to fix the mess, I used a paper towel sprayed with our stamp cleaner and removed the ink pad markings, thus taking away the ability to wiggle the block while stamping and have the ink pad ink show up on my cardstock when I didn't want it! The extra ink in the center of the heart I didnt worry about because I didn't press so hard for it to show up on the cardstock.
Most people use a foam mat under their clear stamps, I don't feel the need with Stampin Up Photopolymer Stamps. They stamp very clearly for me without it! Adding that foam under cardstock makes it easier to get that inside ink on cardstockand so does pressing the stamp to hard to the cardstock.
Here is the cardfront after I stamped in Memento black ink, the "you have my heart" stamp from the set. I added the White Baking Twine and tied a knot and adhered it to the Real Red Cardbase.- DONE in less than 10 minutes
Below is my finished card. I am sorry about the placement of the copyright required by Stampin Up- Gimp (the editing program I Use for the copyright) recently did an update and now the link where I used to be able to move the copyright around doesn't work. I am going to have to research it more to find out where they "hid" that ability (transform tools/move layer) within the program- I HATE it when MEN DO THAT! It surely doesn't make it any "easier" to use! I like simple and fun, not buried and frustrating computer programs!
This is a 6"x6" card using Whisper White and Real Red Cardstock, Real Red and Memento Black inks and our really cool White Bakers String. If this were going to a female instead of the hubby, I would add a rhinestone to one of the red hearts to girlie it up.
Here is the inside. I left it mostly blank so I can write something really mushy.........
It's so much fun to get the My Paper Pumpkin Kits and then find other ways to use either the papers or the stamps!
I hope you enjoyed this easy easy card and it inspires you to create something for your loved one!
I am undecided about an envelope at this time. It will take a 9.5" x9.5" piece of cardstock or paper to create one using our Envelope board. I dont like to use cardstock for envelopes, to me the cardstock is just to heavy and I am not sure if I have any heart designer paper. Although while typing we do have the Typeset designer paper with all the newsprint on it- that would make a really cute envelope! Guess I will have to do that later today and post the envelope tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Recently, I received an email question about the difference between Memento Ink and Staz On, so I wanted to answer it here in case anyone else has the same question.
Personally I use only these 2 inks for my projects. I am not a fan of the Classic Black ink we also sell.
I hope this helps with the questions. I recommend from personal experience that when you order either of these ink pads, you also order the ink refill. I use my inks alot, and it is very handy to have the refill on hand at the time needed instead of waiting for an order to come in!
