Nikky has been working her little socks off for you all again and produced some gorgeous new rubber stamps. Yes proper Delicious RED RUBBER stamps. Knowing who manufactures these stamps I can tell you they are top quality and deeply etched. I'm sorry to all you clear rubber stamp lovers but rubber is definitely better in my humble opinion and far more versatile and long lasting.
There are a few exceptions I grant you, one of which being Clarity Stamps which are far superior to other clear stamps and on a par with rubber. They will withstand heat and permanent inks with ease, and there are so many designs to die for it's hard to choose.
I also have to say a big thank you to Kuretake UK for sending me some fabby Kurecolour alcohol inks. The colours are amazing. If you have never used any of their products then give them a go. You really won't be disappointed, again the quality of their Zig pens Etc is second to none. I'm using the inks for a Magazine set, so unfortunately I can't post any pictures of them till they have been published, but as and when I get some time (ha ha) I will use them on a project and post some pics.
I digress so back to Polka Doodles. This weeks challenge on the the PD blog this week was to make a card using the Poem 'Twas the night before Christmas ..........' as inspiration. The design team have made some wonderful inspirational projects so hop over to the Polka Doodles blog and have a butchers.
For my DT challenge card I used the Paper Boutique Vol2 Creative Christmas CD for all the elements and backing papers. Santa and Rudolf won't be going hungry or thirsty this Christmas eve.
