I'm so glad you are excited about the Lotus Blossom photopolymer (clear) stamp set that I shared in yesterday's post.  It will be one of the choices available as a FREE gift with every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax) during the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration promotion (starts Jan. 6).


Today's WOW! video shows you the simplicity of the Lotus Blossom stamp set along with tips on creating shades using a single stamp color.  I used only Night of Navy ink for the card above.  I love that Stampin' Up! has labeled the images as 1, 2 and 3 on the image sheet so that you know the order to stamp for the best results as well as arrows to help with orientation.

TO LEARN MORE about my favorite way to store photopolymer (clear) stamps, watch my video above.

NEW TIP FOR TWO IMAGE SHEETS:  If you have two image sheets, you can do the same with the second image sheet on the front inside cover of the storage case.  When it's closed, the stamps on each side don't touch (at least mine don't).

  1. Awesome idea for stamp storage!

  2. So excited this is working better for you, Carol. Please let me know how the watercolor paper works!

    Thank you for the video on how to create the most beautiful flower…I struggled several times to do this with our Blackberry Bliss….however everything seemed to meld together…obviously I did not stamp off long enough. I was a bit surprised to see how much ink that you took off but how fabulous the result is. I have also seen a few people use Watercolor paper…will experiment with that as well…just love this set! Thank you also for your idea on how best to store the photopolymer stamps.

  4. Love the idea on storing the clear stamps. Ingenious!

  5. I hope they have a ton as well, Suzanne. I anticipate this will be one of the most popular gifts for Sale-A-Bration. Fortunately, Stampin’ Up! manufactures their stamps in the U.S. and can pretty easily make more if needed!

  6. Sometimes it’s the little things that make difference, Candy!

  8. Thank you for the Lotus Blossom video. I have trouble ling up multi step stamps and I’ sure the arrows will help. Can’t wait until I can place an order next Tuesday. I really want this stamp as do a LOT of other people. Hope SU has made a ton of them…LOL

  9. I’ve been storing my photopolymer stamps like this, but never thought to use mini glue dots to hold the image sheet in place. Brilliant! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and wisdom!

  10. Thanks for the video. I love the multi-step stamps as they make cards so elegant. This set is no exception. I’m anxiously awaiting next Tuesday!
