Well, I have to admit that I actually started out this scrapbooking journey with some stamps. I went to a stamping party and immediately was hooked.
However, there was a BIG lull for me when I didn't want to use stamps at all. I was just quite content scrapbooking with all the new goodies & toys out there in the scrapbooking industry that my stamps began to collect dust.
But over the years I've acquired a love for them again.
Since designing for Imaginisce I've found that I've used them even more on my layouts (not just cards .... which is where I usually think to use my stamps).
Here are a few examples of how I've used stamps.
This one I stamped the image with Versamark.
Supplies used: Bazzill cardstock, Imaginise (Scooter's Vacation: paper, flowers, stickers, stamps), transparency, EK Success corner rounded punch, Versamark
For this layout I stamped the little robot image with black ink and then colored it in with Tombow markers.
Supplies used: Imaginisce (Live Loud: papers, stamps, stickers, chipboard), Tombow markers, EK Success corner rounded punch
On this card I used the word stamp with Versamark on the background card and then stamped and colored the main image in like I did for the layout above.
Supplies used: Prism cardstock, Imaginisce (Live Loud: papers, stickers, stamps), EK Success corner rounded punch, Versamark, Tombow markers
I used a flower stamp for this layout on some patterned paper and then just colored in the center of the stamped flower image.
Supplies used: Core'dinations cardstock (Black Magic), Imaginisce (To Love & Cherish: papers, flowers, stamps, i-top brads), American Crafts Thickers
And lastly, on this layout I used a tree stamp on patterned paper and then cut out all the trees and adhered them along the bottom section of my layout. Some trees I adhered with pop dots ... others just flat.
Supplies used: Core'dinations cardstock, Imaginisce (Apple Cider: papers, chipboard, rub-ons, stamps, i-rock tool and crystals), VersaColor ink (in brown)
Thanks for looking & I hope that you're inspired a little to play with your stamp collection today!
