OK, although I have been tempted by these for a long, long time and did finally break down and purchase them, I have to admit that I haven't yet had the opportunity to use them on my own LO's. However, I did get to help my SIL use them on a few of hers. They easily came off of the backing (something I understand not all clear stamp sets always do). They inked up well and stamped a good image almost immediately (no conditioning seemed to be needed). She had never stamped in her albums before and had no problem with them. She even added crystal and flowers to enhance them even more. They went perfectly with such embellishments. She created absolutely beautiful images with these. I can hardly wait until I can find the appropriate uses for them for my own projects.
These are now my favorite stamps. They are absolutely elegant! Of course the clear stamps are the best invention since the mouse trap and I have several sets that I love, but these stamps make a real impression on the page. I like to make it look like the flourishes are coming out from behind a photo, flower or embellishment for a little pizzazz on my layout. The stamps are high quality so they stamp exactly as they are shown in the photo and they are completely clear. I would highly recommend these beautiful stamps.
I just love these stamps by Rhonna Farrer. All of her stamps have such elegance and add such a creative element to all work, from cardmaking to scrapbooking. Sometimes a little flourish is all you need to add that extra oomph! to one of your scrapbook pages. The fact that they're clear is an added bonus...you are able to see exactly where to place the stamp...a big plus especially if you're used to rubber stamps! Easy to clean, easy to use with beautiful results every time!
