Stamping

I am going to work through all my stamps to see if there are any I really don't like or like using (rubber ones for instance, just hate them).

For the first time in quite a while, I bought myself some new stamps as part of a magazine - a jungle wild animal theme. Here they are just stamped onto a sheet of white paper:
I like them a lot. They came from this magazine - shush - advertising!
It also had some paper blanks in them which I don't tend to use much but some of them are okay.

You should clean silicone stamps before using, there is a bit of mould release residue still on them. However, I tend to stamp them as above, putting them straight into soapy water after each stamp. Once rinsed and dried, they are put back on the acetate backing and are ready to go (and stamp properly) next time.

  1. I have never gotten into stamping, but it looks like a great deal of fun. Those jungle stamps look very interesting.

    God bless.

    1. My problem is I am not as good as I would like but can’t be too bothered at the moment.

  2. Like Jackie I've never been able to enjoy stamping. I'm not sure why. Looking forward to seeing your creative makes.

  3. They look like such fun. I sorted a lot of my stamps and papers out yesterday. I could do with a better way of storing them.

  4. I really like the leaves. I've never tried stamping, or papercraft/ cardmaking. I've just finished another baby cardigan, and cast on for matching hat. Once I've finished this last set of gifts for J's colleagues I've got doll's clothes to knit. We found K's childhood doll( amongst numerous other things of K's) whilst having a sort out, and I'm going to repair and re-clothe her.

    1. I don’t do as much as I could as I don’t have many people to send them to. Good luck with the doll clothes, she will look fab.
