Congrats! You get the Angel Anya single stamp!!! *applause applause* Please email me your address so that I can ship her out to you asap! Thanks everyone for playing! Splendid Secret Giveaways are never pre-announced so remember to check back often. Don't forget Monday is the first week of Splendid Spree!



This is my first clear stamp set, scheduled to be available in the store later this week. Very excited! The sheet measures 4x6 and the words are nice and bold so it'd be a field day for those of you who love to layer! They are nice sized stamps for cards, scrapbooking, and especially tags!

I've been mostly designing the stamps to be red rubber but wanted to try out the clear and by looking at the sample, the clear seems to be looking pretty nice!

So my question for you today is: Rubber or Clear?

I use to say only red, but I've been using clear lately. I think if it's a good quality of rubba it really doesn't matter. Love this stamp set.

I like rubber better but sometimes clear has it's advantages. Especially when lining things up --including alphabets. You don't have to use a stamp-a-ma-jig. I have some 3-4 step clear stamps that are very easy to use. Also there are different qualities of clear--the cheaper ones don't always take all types of ink well.

I agree - the quality makes the differences, regardless of if it's red or clear. =)

*love* the new stuff!

I prefer a good quality clear stamp because it's so much easier to position than rubber.

i just got my first clear stamps a little over a week ago and they are very easy to position, and they stamp evenly because they are high quality stamps. I love my rubber, but once again, if they weren't a high quality stamp they just wouldn't make it...your new stamps look great, too!

Maria Matter said...

I love 'em both! Quality is the deciding factor! These stamps look great!

Oooh, I like this set. I love inspirational sets. I have both rubber and clear stamps. I find that they each have their virtues and their snares. Rubber gives clean impressions easily, but clear allows you to see where your stamping. Gotta have both! LOL
