NEW "Keep Calm and Carry On" from Rubber Soul! & UHU review!

Edit post 1/22/12: The Rubber Soul brick and mortar store closed last year.  You can still buy Rubber Soul stamps online. HERE

Yesterday on my way home I dropped by the Rubber Soul.  I was so excited to be the first person to own their newest mounted   stamps!!!!  "Keep Calm and Carry On".  It is  available in TWO rubber stamps. One is solid the other has floating words  click here to see!  I went home and made ATCs for a trade I was participating in on Friday evening, everyone loved the slogan.  

The stamps are miniatures of a British WWII propaganda poster, to learn more about the poster go to Barter Books.
Below are the ATCs I traded, I used the solid stamp with VersaColor - Cardinal.  
Stamping tip: I always stamp on glass, especially when I have a solid background. I always get a better image. 

These are my new favorite stamps!!!!

On another note, just for asking I received a UHU glue roller from UHU.  Most of the time I use glue stick when ever I make ATC's.  On these I used the UHU glue roller!!!!  I love it.  NO MESS like the glue stick.  The roll made the job quick and easy!!!!
