New toy alert! When I saw that the Teresa Collins Stampmaker was on sale before Christmas I asked my personal Santa to get it for me. He kindly drove 60 miles to the store that had it marked down and I didn't even have to wait to open it (he never wrapped it!)
This unassuming box opens up to reveal all this:
It includes a CD of instructions.
So, what does it do? It allows you to make your own clear stamps from any black and white artwork (samples included). You create a 'sandwich' of the artwork and a packet with a gel-like medium between two clear plates. This goes inside the machine which has 4 UV lights in it. After a few minutes explosure the packet is opened and rinsed off and scrubbed with a little brush. Then you put it back in the machine to harden. Sticky-back medium is included to make the stamp a cling. A block with a handle is included.
Here's the machine up close:
There are materials included so the machine can be used for making stencils and embossing dies.
I haven't had a chance to play with it yet but will post when I have done so.
