The past three days Stampin' Up! had its Leadership event in Orlando, Florida. I was very sad that I wasn't able to attend, but they did stream the general sessions live, so I was able to see the stamping presentations (always a highlight at SU events).
WELL.......Katie Adams positively knocked my socks off with her presentation about our stamps. She "accidentally" used the back side of the Sheltering Tree photopolymer stamp, the side you would normal place against the clear block. I was so taken with the effect that I had to run into my craft room and try it! She stamped off once (I think she was using Wild Wasabi), but I went for our lightest green, Pisctachio Pudding, and used it full strength. Then I flipped the stamp over and used the Wild Wasabi (stamped off once) for the individual leaves. A couple of punches with the Confetti Hearts Border Punch, and I had all the hearts I needed for the tree. Sooo quick and cute!
Now I'm looking at all my other photopolymer sets and wondering what other cool things I can do with the "wrong" sides!
