Pink Persimmon Stamps and a GIVEAWAY!


{Reported by Kimberly Crawford}




I have been following Pink Persimmon stamps for a while now. They are a relatively new stamp company that has some amazing designs! I was drawn in by the vintage/retro/modern look to their images. They are spot-on with with current design trends!
And a funny thing happened on my way to reviewing their stamps...I was chosen to join their creative team! :) I never expected to be chosen for the team, but you really can't make it if you don't try out! So I am pleased to be sharing the images above with you today.

What I like:
1. The stamps are good-quality photo polymer. They are soft, flexible, and stick to your acrylic block easily. Best thing is, once they get too much love and stop sticking, wash them in soap and water, and they are good as new.
2. The images stamp crisply and evenly.
3. Lots of creativity between stamp sets.

What I dislike:
1. About the only thing that I can say, and this is really pushing it, would be more sentiments. They have several cute sentiments already, but I personally *need* more. :)

What I made:

For this first card, I started with stamping a background on the kraft cardstock using the solid zig zag image from the Banner Set Small. I created the banners by stamping each different pendant pattern in a different color. I glued each pendant to twine and then adhered them to the card. To create the pumpkin, I first stamped the sentiment from Vintage Greetings. Here is a cool thing about clear stamps-you can bend them. The sentiments in the set are curved to fit inside the beautiful scroll image, but I wanted it straight. By placing it on my acrylic block in a straight line, I was able to achieve the look I wanted. How is that for flexibility? The pumpkin and grass images are from two different sets of stamps, not reviewed here, but look at how wonderfully all the images can work together!

Stamps: Pink Persimmon (Banner Set Small, Vintage Greetings (celebrate), also added in grass from Flower Garden and the pumpkin from Little Red Wagon), Patterned paper border (Sassafras Lass), Cardstock (Papertrey Ink-Rustic White, Kraft), Ink (Palette-Lavendar Moon, Ripe Avocado, Summer Sunrise, Noir), (Versamark Watermark) (Memento-Tuxedo Black), Twine (May Arts), Spellbinders die templates (Labels 8)
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


These next two cards are the same card, with one change, the scroll banner. I wanted to show how amazingly these stamps all work together. The SMALL alpha sets fit inside the scroll! How fun is that? Vintage Greetings comes with several sentiments in great fonts, but if you wanted to customize your scroll, you can easily! I thought this card would be a perfect baby card. But if you wanted to make your own birth announcements, then you could put your child's name inside the scroll, like on the lower card.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


To make it easier to space your letters out, always start with the letter that is closest to the center of the word. So in the name, Ethan, the h is the center letter. I stamped it first in the center of the scroll. Then I stamped the t and a, and then finished with the e and n. So many possibilities! I guess then my complaint about *needing* more sentiments really isn't justified. I can spell out my own! Be sure and check the website for their other cute alpha set.

Stamps: Pink Persimmon (Vintage Greetings, Soda Pop Aplha Small), Ink (Memento-Tuxedo Black), Patterned paper (October Afternoon-Ducks in a Row), Cardstock (Papertrey Ink-Rustic White), Buttons (Making Memories), Twine (May Arts), Spellbinders die templates (Labels 8)
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I've never tried their stamps but I'm loving those sets. I'm a huge fan of stamp sets that you can gets lots of mileage out of. Money is tight and when you can find products that will work for a dozen different projects at a reasonable price that is great news.

The banner is my favorite, but I like the scroll with the interchangeable messages as well. Nice selection of images and I love clear stamps.
