I remember hearing a bit of buzz about "see-D's" by Inque Boutique from the summer CHA show. However, I hadn't seen them at any retailers locally. I went to my local scrapbook store and finally saw an assortment of these stamps. Since they were so inexpensive, I decided to give this set a try. They stamp just like rubber stamps (since that's what they are), but they are cling, so they work on acrylic blocks. They have the image on the back side, so even though you can't see through them, you have a decent idea of where the image will end up. It comes with a stamping mat, which I used. I'm not sure if it's completely necessary or not. I like the bold fun images, but I'm not sure if I like the actual design of the product. For my unmounted stamps, I'm used to having EZmount. Also, even though the cling is guaranteed, it seems very much like a tape product. I think if I were to drop a stamp on the floor, it would pick up cat hair, paper scraps, and who knows what else. EZmount doesn't do that. Also, the stamps are just rubber, nothing more, so they are quite flimsy. The storage system is pretty good.

Like I said, the price was right, and I liked the images enough, to give these a shot.
Enough critique, here's the card! I used this paper as inspiration for my colours. This is the same layout as yesterday's card. Amazing what different papers, images, and colours does for a layout!

Stamps: Inque Boutique's Fun & Funky flowers, PTI's Paper Tray
Ink: Various Palette inks
Paper: chocolate, K& Company DP, White
Accessories, etc.: chocolate wide grosgrain, pop dots, circle punches, nestabilities


  1. Cute card, Natasha. It is a nice reminder that Spring WILL come to MB sometime....soon??

  2. I love the card and am a fan of Inque Boutique, which by the way for some more information for you, the "sticky" is cleanable with soap and water so I wouldn't worry about it picking up anything unwanted, and the stamp mat is nessessary as it is just rubber without the cushion that is on most of the others...But for the price it is great and the images are just as detailed as other rubber stamps so I hope that you will soon like them as much as me, I like their storage as well which when you have limited space it great.
