Heidi Grace Stamps


I was at Jo-ann's yesterday and saw they are now carrying clear stamps by Heidi Grace. They're so cute. Dont' buy them though. They won't come off the contact sheet. They won't pick up ink right and they really dont' stick to the block. Don't worry, I'll be contacting HeidiGrace.com about the issues. I had the same problem with K&CO clear stamps about 6 months ago. They said they've fixed the prob but I haven't purchased them again. So this is the card I made with the stamps. Pretty stamps but because they don't stick there is some smudging.
All stamps are from that set. I used cameo coral and real red ink along with old olive. My friend Michelle knows how much I love the coral and the red together. I made this card for the sketch challenge on Poetic Aritistry I really wish these stamps worked better because they're gorgeous. Alas I'm off to get ready for the stake primary activity. TTFN.

Hi! I bought all the sets. I've not had any problems with these stamps coming off the contact sheet, sticking or otherwise inking. Have you tried running them in water. Sometimes, that helps with the stickiness of it. I really love the stamp designs and I used my coupon to buy them all so at that low price, it would be worth buying them. One other thing, I used my tack n peel (Tsukineko)on my acrylic block then placed these stamps on it. Works great! Any questions, email me. HTH

Misty, I LOVE this card...and you thought you didn't like the cameo coral. Now you can't get enough of it!! Do you think you'll try what cyndi said? maybe you just got a bad batch?

Great card! I didn't get to do as much craft store shopping as I wanted too while I was out west--now I'm bummed because I know a little of what I missed. Super cute haircut by the way!

Gorgeous card! I saw it over at Poetic Artistry. I had the same problem with K&Co stamps I bought at Target. I was so mad. The company siad they were working on the problem and offered me a free stamp set, but I really had no interest in getting another one at that point. Poor quality control, I'd say!

I have just purchased 2 sets of heidi grace stamps 1 of which is the same as has been used on that card and found them o.k. The ones I have are wood mounted so wheather that has made an improvement but I like them.
