Born Pretty Store recently came out with their own range of stamping plates, I managed to get a couple of these in a special 1p sale. Having not tried any of there plates before I was interested in seeing if they actually stamped, and I was pleasantly surprised. All of these four designs stamped crisp and easily.

These plates come with a branded backing which means the edges not sharp.

I used Kleancolor Metallic Sapphire to stamp with and as you can see I didn't have problems with any of the images. The way the plate is laid out in to four different quarters means even if you have slightly wider or longer nails then the design should fit on to them.

I particularly like the wave and baroque images.

Once I have used this plate you will be able to see all of them by clicking here.
