    50 Ideas to do with your STAMPS

    Post  Admin on Mon Mar 02, 2009 3:59 am

    50 Ways to Use Stamps

    1. Use alphabet stamps to make your title on a strip of cardstock

    2. Cut out the individual letters and pop dot them for an even jazzier title

    3. Stamp directly on your photos

    4. Get a personalized stamp with your return address for all your correspondence

    5. Get a personalized stamp with “handmade by ____” to mark all your creations

    6. Stamp a small image over and over again to make your own patterned paper

    7. Try the above with Versamark ink for an even subtler background pattern

    8. Stamp with acrylic paint

    9. Use a phrase stamp on the inside of a card to make it even more professional-looking

    10. Stamp lines in Versamark as a guide for straight handwritten journaling

    11. Use an inkpad, without a stamp, directly on your paper to jazz up the edges

    12. Stamp a flower and add a brad or eyelet for the center

    13. Use small alphabet stamps to make captions for photos

    14. Stamp a word on a tag to highlight the theme of your page

    15. Stamp an image multiple times, color in and cut out the pieces to overlap and form your own paper piecing

    16. Stamp an image and cut out, then pop dot or use on your page just like a sticker

    17. Emboss your stamping for extra shine or the 3D effect

    18. Use one set of stamps throughout an entire mini album to tie it all together

    19. Use stamps to decorate the cover of a cloth album so that it coordinates with the theme of the pages inside

    20. Practice stamping on scrap paper and use the result as a pretty bookmark

    21. Use wheel stamps for handmade gift wrap

    22. Use a wheel stamp to make patterned paper

    23. Use a wheel stamp for a quick and easy border

    24. Stamp on paperclay and punch a hole in the top to make your own charms

    25. Stamp on a magnetic sheet and cut out for cute handmade magnets to give as a gift

    26. Stamp an image in black ink and color it in

    27. Stamp an image in clear ink and emboss in clear, then rub colored ink over the paper so that you get a reverse image

    28. Stamp an image in black and use a sponge dipped in ink/pressed on the inkpad to color in the image – looks even better if you "don’t" stay inside the lines

    29. Stamp in Versamark and dab chalk over the top for a softer image

    30. You can also try stamping with chalk

    31. Stamp a whole scene and mat it just like a photo

    32. Overlap stamped images for a collage look

    33. Use an alphabet stamp to make monogram patterned paper

    34. Use word stamps to make interesting patterned paper

    35. Try stamping your title with mismatched or different sizes of alphabet stamps for a funky/ransom note look

    36. Customize your home décor by stamping on your walls

    37. Stamp on fabric – aprons, dishtowels, tote bags, swatches for scrapbook pages, etc

    38. Stamp the sides of a post-it note cube for a cute gift

    39. Use stamps on your holiday cards – makes it easier to mass produce the same design over and over

    40. Print business cards or address labels from your computer and stamp an image in the corner to jazz them up

    41. Stamp off on scrap paper once before stamping so that the image is softer and you can read text through it

    42. When making background paper, stamp two or three times before re-inking – you get even more ‘shades’ out of just one color this way

    43. Use Staz-On ink to stamp on vellum or metal

    44. Stamp on polyshrink and bake it to make your own plastic charms

    45. Stamp on bottle caps for an even jazzier embellishment

    46. Use a stamped image as the outline for creating a wire shape

    47. Use a word stamp to stamp on ribbon or twill

    48. Leave space in printed journaling to stamp a few words so that they stand out

    49. Use stamps to fill in the smaller squares in a colorblocking page

    50. Get non-toxic ink and stamp on yourself – makes a cool temporary tattoo! (kids love this one too).
