When I opened these stamps a sharp pungent odor hit me. This smell was strong enough to almost immediately cause me some unpleasant reactions. I wrapped them back up and contacted the company to see if there is anything I could do to get rid of it. I was told that they use a different kind of plastic to make these stamps, one that will give a better, crisper image, and that this plastic has an associated odor to which some people are sensitive. They suggested I soak them in water with scented dishwashing soap, but that didn't do much to help. So these stamps are in my collection, securely wrapped up. I can't bring myself to give up on them, but I just can't use them. They might be ok for some people, but if you have any tendency at all to be sensitive of chemical smells, stay away from all Technique Tuesdays dies.
Love the variety of nature stamps in this set. The cattails and grass are good for making masculine cards. All stamps are a great start for card designs, adding your butterflies, flowers, dragonflies, etc would make nice cards.
