In case you haven’t noticed, I am bit of a stamping lover. If I could I would do stamping every single day. Don’t worry though, I am sure you want to see a little more than stamping. I will try to keep it to a minimum 😉
I do have another stamping plate set to show you though. This one is the Bundle Monster holiday collection. I am not going to show you all the details about how it arrives etc. If you want to see more of those details go check out my post about the first Bundle Monster set I got.
I really like this set and you can bet your bottom dollar I will be doing something for every single holiday ever! What I like most about this set is that even though it is holiday themed there are a lot of images you can use for any other look you want, not just for holidays. I have an example later. First, let me show you the plates.
Don’t you just love them? There really is something for every occasion. Like I said though, you can use some of these images for anything. This is what I came up with.
I used 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Black on black on my index, pinky and thumb and 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Sweet Nothing on my middle and ring fingers. I then stamped onto Sweet Nothing with Essence stampy polish in black and on the black with Sweet nothing. I used blare BM-H19. See, nothing holiday about it 😉
What do you think? Which plate is your favourite?
That Sinful colour is beautiful! I can’t wait to see your creations with these stamping sets! 🙂

Thanks so much Loren! I have to agree, that colour is stunning! xx
Ooo I do love these stampy posts! I love the idea of stamping but have not had much success doing it. I bought the essence stamp kit that you had on one of your earlier posts last year but seem to end up with it dried on the stamp before I can “pick” it up or extraneous polish around the edges….practise, practise and more practise I think. Thanks again for the great posts.

Thanks so much Sharon. I am so sorry you are having a hard time with the stamping. A few questions that might help. Do yo scrape with the scraper that came with it or with a plastic card? Unfortunately it is possible that it dries on the plate if you take a little too long but that is definitely something that will get better with time and practice. I prefer to scrape with a plastic card like an old gift card or bank card type. It scrapes cleaner and doesn’t leave much or damage the plate. Have you by any chance watched my video? It might help some even though it isn’t the best video 😉
Thanks Michelle for your reply, I do use the scraper so will swap to the card and I confess I haven’t seen your video yet, I will do so when I get home this afternoon. Thanks for taking the trouble to share these tips. xx
You’re very welcome. I hope it helps a bit. Try the card scraper first and if no improvement shout. Good luck! xx
Love the mani! And I am super jealous of the plates, as always 🙂

Hahahaha thanks Kerry. We should get together and play with each others stuff we are so jealous of. 😉
How cute are those? Love them all. Your nails always look ridiculously perfect. 🙂
Thank you so much Chicara. You are very kind. 🙂
There are a lot of these plates I don’t like, like the Halloween ones cos I’m not into it. I do love all the heart designs though! The chain mail heart on the first plate would look exquisite stamped in silver! Also like the snowflakes and twitter birdies 🙂

I think we should rather count the ones we DON’T like, it might be fewer 😉
