Ipod Girl!!



Have you heard of Rakle stamps???? I just got a couple from Phebe at The Town Scrapper and I LOVE them!!! They are rather large and long stamps and they have a totally unique look. I'm not sure where they come from, but I know it's in Europe!

When I looked at them in the store I admired their very colourful and professional packaging and thought they were very different and that I might give them a try. Well when I got them home and took them out of the packaging I realized that they are a real quality product. They are made from thick, deeply etched rubber and mounted on EZmount. They cling to a thick plastic card with a colour picture of the image on the opposite side, so that you could store them in a little box or something and just flip through them easily to find the one you want! Very cool idea! Then I stamped with them and they stamped like a dream too!! Yay!



I made a long card with this girl, that I call Ipod girl. I used some coordinating Fancy Pants paper and some retired Rose Romance cardstock from SU. I coloured her using my Copic markers, added some Primas with silver brads and attached some yummy satin ribbon from Michael's. The sentiment is by Verve Visual and I used one of the new silver bookplates from SU. A very simple card but I really like it!



Well, it's a quick post this morning because we are off to shop in the US today. It's a holiday Monday here in Ontario so this is our chance to visit the stores in the US because they are open!!! I get to go to Hobby Lobby (my favourite craft store ever) and I'm going to try to find Mary Maxim too!! I'll let you know how I make out shoppin'!!! Have a great day!!

I suffer from stamp envy every time you show your stamps. (I can't ever seem to find them available in the US - especially the Magnolias). Love them Rakles and you did a great job on it.

Lovely card Kim.

I saw the stamps in Kitchener's Scrapfest at Phebe's table. The one with the large hips kills me.
Me after childbirth LOL>
