Thank U, Thank U, Thank U Stampin’ Up!!

 My daughter recently turned “8”!  Crazy, I tell you.  She was just six months old when I became hooked on stamping.  In the last 8 years she gets in on any crafty project she can!  Totally, like Mother like Daughter here! 🙂
I made these Thank You’s to fit these super high quality envelopes that came with some pictures I ordered a long, long time ago.  The Thank You dimensions are 4″x7″.  I usually do not go out of my comfort zone and usually stick to a 4.25″x5.5″ size.  I am glad that I ventured out of the box. 😉
The real exciting details are the STAMPS that I used.  They were just released as a test product and they TOTALLY passed the test with me.  I tell you that I have NEVER found the completely clear stamps to be to my liking so, over the last few years I have stuck with my rubber stamps!  Stampin’ Up! has come up with the PERFECT Photopolymer Stamps.  I was most concerned that they were not going to work well with the older style of inkpads (because I only have a few of the newer firm foam ones).  I was wrong, so wrong!  I stamped my (I mean, my daughter’s) thank you’s with Wisteria Wonder and Melon Mambo (both the older style of inkpad) and it worked so great!
Another REALLY neat thing is that with the clear stamp you can kind of change the shape of the stamp.  For this card I used the banner that comes straight across and just bent it a bit when attaching to my block.  Worked like a charm!  
I can not wait for Stampin’ Up! to get us some other photopolymer stamps!  I really can not believe how much I like them.  Oh, the price is a HUGE seller too.  This set of 57 stamps is only $13.95!!!  This equals MORE stamps for ME! (and You) 🙂
