I'm a rebel

It feels kinda weird holding stamps that belong to another company when I'm a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I can hear ya'll shouting out, "TRAITOR!" Haha! Anyway, these are some stamp sets I purchased that came in the mail today. Papertrey Ink has amazing service! I'm SO thankful they ship Priority to Alaska (I won't even start whining about that again--promise). By the way, I think Creating Keepsakes returned all of my money for that incident that happened, so I'm thankful! Go CK! So back to what I'm trying to say here: the stamps were wrapped in tissue paper, almost like they were sending these to me as a gift. Well, not that wrapped, but I could tell whoever packaged it up took their time. It was wonderful! I felt special! Ha!

The packaging alone makes me think I should just keep them in the loft for decoration. (Don't worry, I'll open them)

Each set comes with a CD case and stickers to put on the case so you know what each stamp says. I'm new to stamping with acrylic/clear stamps, so I'm still trying to figure all of this out. Anyone know how to clean these stamps? I think I remember hearing something about soap and water. But seriously, I'm clueless! And what about inks? I'm thinking that SU craft inks will work better than the classic. Oh, and I got some cardstock too, but I haven't opened it yet. It looks THICK! I can't wait to play!

And this who I found sleeping in the loft when I went up there to take pictures. Makes me want to snuggle with him. Awww, kitty!

Hey Christina! I love all of your projects you posted today! You've been busy! I recently purchased a stamp set from Papertrey Ink also, and agree that the packaging was very nice! I love acrilic stamps and prefer using the stazon ink cleaner, to me it works the best, but I also use soap and water when they loose that stickyness. I hope helps!

Hey Christina! I found a web site where one of the designers is retiring. So all of her digital stuff is $1.00. You might want to check it out!
