What is happening to my stamps?!?

I thought Stampin' Up Stamps are a good quality.
Look at that!

My stamps are stored in a cupboard, no sunlight.

This isn't flat at all:

I'm so sad about!

But look, the wood-mounted stamps are the same:

Is that normal?

Embossing Resist Technique

First I sponged a few cardstocksheets.

The stamps I want to use: Stempin' Up!
French Foliage

I stamp it with Versa Mark and use clear embossingpowder.

Heat it!

Now I start to ink the whole sheet black.

I use Distress black soot.

It's done!
And here you can see how it looked before :)

Same in blue and voilett:

Before and after stamping, embossing and inking :)

Same thing, different colors:

I like this!

Time to use some different stamps!

Stampin' Up!

Stampin' Up!, too :)

The finished backgrounds:

Next Stampin' Up! Background.

And the last Stampin' Up! background:

Looks very different, doesen't it?

Here some swirls:

The stampset is made by Viva Decor, the stamp calles Florale Schnörkel

That's what this card is made with:

Have fun!

Water effects - my newest stamp

I saw this card on Ryns Blog (don't know how I landet there... you know how this is) and i HAD to buy these stamps!
And I was right, the stamps are great!
This is my first card made with it, not perfect but I like it :-D

Stamps I used:
Water Effects- Design by Ryn
Psychedelic Grunge - Tim Holtz (it's a set of 5 stamps)
Ink I used:
Sponged and stamped with Stampin' Up Rose Red and Aubergine,
stamped the raindrops with Archival Ink black
The white highlights are made with Cleopatre Gouache white.
The little red dots are made with a piece of an anti-slip from IKEA, calles "Stopp".
I used it as a mask, it works great!

I had to rough the edges because I crashed my papertrimmer;
now it cuts very... creative^^
So we do as it has to be that way ;)
The one black edge you see here I sponged with a Memento Dew Drop silver.

Nothing stopps us from making cards, right?!?
Wonder hoe this raindropthingi works?
Look at this video from Ryn, it's a great tutorial!

Have fun :-D

Patience - Mirror Stamping Technique

This card is made with a new technique for me, look here: TLC525 ~Mirror, Mirror...~ {3-16-15}
I allways used an acrylic bloc or an acrylic sheet for this.

Unfortunately I don't remember what company the stamps come from, I bought it a very long time ago, in a time I didn't knew it matters^^
The card is made with patience - I stamped about 20 times until it was more or less okay...
I shall have chosen "luck" instead of "patience" ;-)

I stamped on a very lightweight japanese-paper, crumpled it and glued it on darkblue cardstock.

Thanks for watching :-D
