I'm Turning Into a Geeky Stamper

Thursday, May 2, 2013



I must admit...I'm really starting to get {ADDICTED} to stamping.
I still can't believe it myself! It's sooo fun!

What really got me inking up more are the wonderful kits at The Paper Made Bakery. I used the April Kit called - "Vintage Daydream" for this one. The stamp is from Fresh Squeezed Stamps and is included in the March kit.

I'm up on the blog over there today so be sure to check me out - HERE! 



Another confession.....I'm really, really, really proud of myself. You just don't know how much improvement I've made. (I've been practicing my stamping like crazy). That's why I had to show off this card today. (insert sheepish grin)

Here's my next accomplishment - {heat embossing}

Yes, I know....I know... I'm so behind on this stamping thing. I'm slowly but surely learning from you stamping fanatics.

Please let me know if you have any stamping tips for me. I really want to know where I can find some sort of clear stamp block with guide lines on it. This will help me stamp straight on the paper. Please help a sistah out with some recommendations! (Don't be afraid to be an enabler).

You're about stamping like I am about coloring, although I haven't quite "arrived" at coloring. Consider HSN for the blogs. I got some really great ones from there with the grid on it. Also you should try the Fiskars stamp mount. It works really well.

Happy stamping!!

Adorable card! I like using the Fiskars Stamper. Martha Stewart also has a similar one. For rubber stamps, I like to use the Stampinmajig....happy stamping!

A Fiskars Stamp Press is a fabulous aid to stamping, I use it for almost every project. http://www.simonsaysstamp.com/servlet/the-10291/Fiskars-STAMPING-PRESS-Stamp/Detail

You know Geeky is in and you do it so well! What a fantastic card, the bling is a nice touch!

Rachel W K said...

congrats on being featured! stamping is VERY addicting... be careful! a lot of people like the fiskar stamp press thing (it has a ton of grid lines and four orange corners). Personally I just go to Michael's with a 50% coupon and buy whatever blocks I can find (usually in the stamp aisle!) Have fun!

Good job being a geeky stamper. Actually, I think you are a cool stamper. :). Keep up the good work!

Linda said...

Really sweet. Fun image! TFS

yyam said...

Sooooo sweet! I love the colours here. And the bling!

Barb Murphy said...

This is beautiful Angi...I love the word geek ;)

I use the Fiskars stamp press. I have the standard sized one, but there's a large one too. About $15 AT Simon Says when I bought it. I like it because it came with the grid lines etched in...not a sticker to apply (or in my case misapply!)...it works great!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

So fun and sweet!

LOLZ....you are toooo cute, Angi! Stamping can be so addicting, can't it? I actually started papercrafting as a stamper.....was a Stampin'Up demonstrator for 5 years, and have accumulated way too many stamps. :)
Your card is absolutely adorable! The little camera is just so fun!
I know Making Memories used to sell an acrylic block with grid markings on it....but I don't know if it is still available.

Connie Mercer said...

super cute Angi!!! great designs you come up with:):)

Jinny Newlin said...

Yea for getting addicted to stamping! CUTE creation!

Kelly R said...

i think you got stamping down just fine. i need to try it more too. oh, and heat embossing is so fun. i get hooked on it. someone told me to use a mat on the table then stamp on my project. that mat gives it more support. so keep practicing and have fun.
