CTMH Product Highlight: Clear Acrylic Stamps

Close to my Heart's MyAcrylix stamp sets are one of many reasons I LOVE this company. The best part is that they're clear, so you can see exactly where you're stamping and never have to guess your placement. The acrylic stamps come on a clear acetate sheet, and when peeled off, stick right onto the clear acrylic block without any adhesive. Plus they fit neatly in their plastic envelope, taking up very little space and making storing your stamps a cinch.

The stamps are made of very high-quality polymer that will last and last, and hold even the finest details, which the cheaper stamps I've tried definitely do NOT. I love the freedom that stamps give you—you can get so many different looks, plus you can use them time and time again—they're the supply that keeps on giving! No more need to buy pricey stickers or 3D embellishments—simply make your own!

Here are some projects I've made featuring the stamp sets that I consider to be must-haves. (Click any picture to see it larger.)

Happy Birthday Stamp Set

Dainty Thoughts Stamp Set

Posterboard or Rustic Alphabet Stamp Sets
Both of these stamp sets are great for scrapbook titles because they're big, but these are especially my favorites because they are easy to cut out. Especially the Posterboard's all straight lines!

Rustic Alphabet:

Posterboard Alphabet:
This stamp set is so much fun to play with since it's an outline. Try stamping it on patterned paper, or stamp a background stamp onto cardstock, then the posterboard stamp on top of it, like I did in the "Such a Ham" layout below. Have fun!

If you'd like to purchase anything you've seen on my blog, you may do so on my CTMH website.

Have fun, and happy creating! Let me know if you have any questions!
