A Home To Keep: DIY! Step By Step - Easy Stamping

This stamping craft is useful for so many things. You can even make your own invitations. Find a cute stamp and get started.



Supplies:

1. stamp

2. products to stamp on - gift tags, paper bags, envelopes, fabric bags, glassine bags, mini canvas. I always buy extra to practice on. (can be purchased at your local craft store)

3.  clear mounting block

4. ink pad

5. colored pencils

6. cardboard insert (for fabric bag)


Tips:

  1.  My stamp was bigger than my mounting block, but that wasn't a problem I just pressed the section I preferred to my mounting block, inked it and practiced on scrape paper a few times.

  2. Sometimes a section won't stamp dark enough, I just take a colored pencil and outline it myself.

  3. If you are stamping on a fabric bag, place a piece of cardboard between the fabrics to prevent bleeding.


More Tips:

  1. If you'd like to add scripture you can hand draw it or print it out on the computer, cut and glue to your surface. This stamp I had included great wording, I just chose not to use them, but I probably will next time.

  2. For a cute inexpensive filler I like to shread old book pages or newspaper!!

  3. If your stamp is already mounted to wood a mounting block is not needed.

  4. Plan ahead and pick out a favorite Christmas stamp and prestamp some bags, tags and mini easels. You'll be so glad you did.
