Introducing Photopolymer by Stampin’ Up!

Always wanted to be a graphic designer?  My favorite part about design is typography. I adore type. There’s just something inherently beautiful about letterforms and what happens when you stack them to create different shapes and combine them to say different things.  So without further adieu, let me introduce you to the Designer Typeset Stamp Set. It’s based around a really great san serif font that will work well on just about any project. And then there are embellishments and shapes to take whatever you want to say to the next level. The possibilities are seriously endless.

I’ll admit, once you start playing around with the stamp set, you will have a hard time stopping!

But before we get too carried away, let’s get to talking about the benefits of photopolymer stamps. For those who are unfamiliar, let me point out a couple of things that are really cool.

First, they’re completely clear, making it oh-so-easy to stamp exactly where you want. They come unmounted, on an acetate sheet, and temporarily adhere to our clear blocks. Awesome!

Second, they are pliable. Want your arrow to shoot a certain way? No problem! Want your banner to have the perfect sag? Easy peasy! Being able to play with the shape gives you even more creative freedom.

So let’s get down to the nitty gritty. The Designer Typeset Stamp Sets in the online store starting now. So just click HERE to order yours today!

Stamp the pumpkins using More Mustard ink on Stampin’ Up! Watercolor paper.

Stamped the witch using Stazon Jet Black ink on the watercolor paper.

Colored the pumpkin by adding a bit of More Mustard marker at the bottom of the pumpkin and then used a blender pen to more the color up to the top of the pumpkin a little at a time.

Stamped the stems on the pumpkin using Basic Black ink.

Added More Mustard marker to the bottom of the pumpkins and used the Blender pen to blend the color.   Be sure to just lay a bit of the marker down at a time.  Blend it before adding more.

 

Added a touch of Basic Black to her hat and cap and then blended it with the Blender pen.

Added Blush Blossom marker to her skin and blended it with the Blender Pen.

Added a bit of Wisteria Wonder marker to her dress and shoes and blended it with the Blender pen.

Colored her hair and the hat buckle and the broom straw using Daffodil Delight marker.   Colored the rest of the broom in using a Soft Suede marker.

Cut out the pumpkins and the witch using Stampin’ Up! Paper Snips.

Now for the background.  Cut a 4.5″ x 6″ piece of Whisper White card stock.  Punched a 1 3/4″ circle punch from a Post it note and used it as a mask for the moon.

 

Brayered Tempting Turquoise and Rich Razzelberry ink at the top of the card stock.

 

Sponged Old Olive ink at the bottom of the card stock, making a hill.

Removed mask and adhered the witch to the card stock and added an Old Olive marker shadow below the pumpkin and broom.

Stamped the Everything Eleanor Flourish using Stazon Jet Black ink twice.

Sponged Always Artichoke and Black ink at the bottom of the card stock.

 

Sponged Always Artichoke ink at the bottom of 2 of the pumpkins and to the Right side of one of the pumpkins.

Adhered two of the pumpkins and stamped the flourish in black over top of them.  Filled in the gaps in the design using a Basic Black marker.

Adhered the 3rd pumpkin using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Added an Old Olive panel and a Basic Black panel.

Here is the finished project measuring 5″ x 6.5″.

Please send your healing thoughts and prayers to Russ today.  It would be greatly appreciated.
