Sweetie Pie - Photopolymer By Stampin Up!

Not everyone knows this, but Stampin' Up! has been releasing seasonal, limited quantity Photopolymer sets for the past year. I use a lot of different clear stamp sets, and understand quality is a big deciding factor on whether or not I order from that company again. Well I am happy to report that Stampin' Up! photopolymer is top quality and the stamps are deeply etched. It drives me crazy when ink gets in the cracks of clear stamps that aren't deeply etched.

To create my card I used the recently released stamp sets "Sweetie Pie" and "Sweetie Pie Frames".
For my first card I used a card base from the March Paper Pumpkin kit, easy right? I used the Hardwood background stamp, and stamped a sheet of Bermuda Bay card stock. Next I stamped the wood frame and cut it out using detail scissors. Using a craft blade I cut out the inside of the frame and using that as a template I cut out my inner white square and stamped the adorable face! I colored her with alcohol markers. I added foam adhesive to the frame, and stamped it one more time on my card base. I attached the frame,  face, and added a bow tied with our new twine. Easy and super cute!
 Almost everything is the same for my second card, only I created the card base using Whisper White card stock, and a Calypso Coral Stampin' Spot! All I did was brush the square across my card stock four times being careful not to make it too uniform. I just love this look, and it is very popular in the stamping world right now!
