New! Polymer Stamps & Clear Stamp Sets

I’m very excited about today’s shop update with some new characters joining my polymer stamps, plus brand new clear stamp sets!

Polymer Stamps

There’s 7 new characters available as small wooden stamps: Koala, Bear, Cup of Tea, Egg on Toast, Jammie Dodger, Apple and Snowflake. There’s a couple of sets and you can buy them all individually too.

We had to switch to a new laser cutting service so the height is slightly different from my older stock. If you buy a set you’ll get 2 the same but individual stamps may not match exactly.

Clear Stamps

When I was throwing around ideas for new stamps, my patrons loved the Bunny Emotions and Kawaii Motivation sets and Clare at Mint Maker Studio suggested they’d work better as clear stamp sets. She was totally right and I ended up making 3 cute sets, adding Happy Mail.

These are flexible unmounted stamps that cling to a reusable block. It’s even easier to get a perfect print and you can see through the block to line it up perfectly. I really loved trying these out, and if you’re new to stamps I highly recommend them.
