Alternative to SU Kinda Eclectic Sunburst
 
I really like the stamp set Kinda Eclectic from Stampin Up, but I don't need any more butterflies, leaves, or polka dots. What I really need is the sunburst stamp from that set. Does anyone know of another company that has a stamp similar to that sunburst? I know that WPlus9 used to have something similar in the stamp set Super Stars, but that set is retired. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Simon Says Stamp sells the Wplus9 Super Stars set if that is of interest to you ;)

Thank you for checking for me! I did see that they still carry it, but yikes! $21 seems steep when I only like the one stamp. I'd be better off getting the SU set, and it looks like I may have to do that anyway!

The leaves from Kinda Eclectic are everywhere in the gallery too...you might get more use of the set than you think!

Yes, I've kinda been talking myself into it! ;)

Is anyone else having problems stamping with the starburst stamp? the ink just "bubbles" on top of the center. Therefore, the stamped image is not solid as illustrated in the catty. I've tried sanding the stamp..did not work.

PaperTrey Ink has a 1/2 sunburst in Nativity Silhouettes. You may be able to sell off the remaining images if you do not want them.

Maybe put an ISO for just the sunburst image of the SU set???

Rosalie... You can also try using a white eraser on your stamp. Rub it over the whole stamp, blow off the "crumbs" then clean it on your stamp-n-scrub before inking.
If that doesn't help you might try inking then stamping on scrap paper, ink again, stamp on scrap paper etc..until the image is coming out solid and non-blotchy. I had to do that for the solid balloon image in the Celebrate Today set.
ALSO....you can ink the stamp with Versamark first, then ink with your color. I do this sometimes and have not seen any damage to my color ink pads from the Versamark. It just gives the ink something to cling to and not bubble up.
Hope this helps!
