making stationary using hand carved stamps was one of Elsie's Style School projects and it used a product i've not come across before...soft pink rubber called *speedy stamp*...basically its just like lino cutting, but much easier as the rubbery stuff is soft...no need to suffer for this kind of cutting!
i didn't make stationary...but i easily could have...and i didn't make bows and diamonds...although they were really sweet...i made this one above...and some trees in frames!
the second tree fits into the frame...but by cutting it out i can use them either together...or separately...two for the price of one...and you must know how much i like a bargain! ;0)
here are a couple of tags i've made for scrapping using the two stamps...wadda ya think?
1} i used my lino cutting tools as i like them better than the stamping ones as they have a hole in the handle to let the cuttings out...if you're going to buy some tools for this technique...i really recommend you look for this feature!
2} transferring your designs is so simple with this rubber...just draw your design on paper and lay face down over the rubber...then rub all over with your finger nail and it transfers by magic!
3} remember that your design will be reversed when you stamp it...so if you're using letters you have to reverse them to get them the right way round when you stamp them!!
hope you're having a good week...alix
