KKcenterHK Review - Stamping Plate

I have been so busy lately, and just finished my final for my last summer class. I meant to post this on Wednesday, but I had too much studying to do. So, you are getting it now. :) I'm reviewing some items I got from KKcenterHK. 

They have a lot of items to choose from and I immediately went straight to the stamping plates (of course!). They have so many, I spent quite a bit of time before I finally settled on this one. :) I was so excited! Then I realized that doing nails with a winter theme in the middle of summer would be kind of weird, so I used the flower stamp and made it summery. :) Here is the design I came up with.


I didn't really have a plan when I did this, and you can probably tell. I just stamped randomly and then decided to zazz it up (yup I just said zazz) with some dots. This base color is a lovely turquoise that my husband got for me. It came from Pacific Sunwear and is from a company called Black Poppy, but does not have a name. I stamped over it using Pure Ice Black Rage, and my dot are Zoya Pippa. This is another new addition to my collection, which my mom got for me recently - thanks Mom!! Here is the color from Black Poppy by itself!


On to the review:

Overall, I like this stamping plate. I had some struggles in the beginning, but it was totally user error. Here are some pics to show what I mean.


When I got the plate in the mail, it looked like this. I was actually pretty upset that it was so scratched up, but decided to give it a try. That was when I realized that this scratched up surface was actually a clear protective sheet. Doh! I couldn't tell since it was clear. I think they should make it hot pink instead. :) Here is the plate looking all nice after I peeled off the plastic.


So, after I removed the protective sheet, I went on to test out the stamp. Here is a pic of the images I stamped onto white paper.


They are pretty good. I'm especially excited about the snowflakes! I also wanted to talk about the stamper and scraper that came with it. The stamper is quite small, but I didn't have any problem with it. I LOVED the fact that the scraper is plastic. It works just as well as my metal one from Konad, but it doesn't scratch the plates. Yay! This will be my new go-to scraper for all stamping. :) My experience with these products was really great, and they have so many wonderful things on their website, you will be like a kid in a candy store. Make sure you have a lot of free time before you start browsing. ;)
