I was so excited when BasicGrey got into the clear stamps. Even though this stamp set has a Christmas theme, there are plenty of stamps that can be used year round. Be careful when you first pull the stamps off of their "home" because the cling is very strong and can rip the stamps. Also, there initially a very strong smell when you first open then but as stated by another reviewer, it does fade away. I have found that adding hot fix crystals to the swirly design makes a beautiful addition. You can't go wrong with these wonderful stamps! Enjoy!
I love Basic Grey, and was so excited when they started making acrylic stamps! The designs are great because they accent their paper wonderfully, but are universal enough to use with any other type of paper you have.
Be careful when you peel these stamps off the sheet, though! I know of several people who have ripped their stamps. (Oh, and they do have a strong oder when you open them, but don't wory, this does fade!)
I love Basic Grey's products and jumped at this set. It was my first time using one of their stamps and I noticed that dye inks give a better image than my pigment inks. Going light on the pad of pigment may help a bit, but dye inks seem to give a more crisp image.
The designs are beautiful and I can use a lot of this set year-round (always a good selling point with me). There are several flourishes in the set. The cling is great and clear is where it's at.
