From Scrapbooker to Cardmaker: Start Stamping

Until now in the Scrapbooker to Cardmaker series, we have focused on ways to use your paper and embellishments on cards.  In these videos I talk about stamping products that work well on both cards and scrapbook pages.

Part 1 is the Stamps video with some ideas on what stamps work well for both. I've shared several scrapbook pages where I used stamps.  Also I share a few 'oops' purchases and how to avoid them.  I've linked the stamps in the video which are still available in the products below.  The only one I know are still available and are not linked are the flourishes.  These can be found at places like Amazon (which for some reason I couldn't get to link with the InLinz tool) and at the craft stores like Hobby Lobby or AC Moore.  If you like flourishes at all, look for Rhonna Farrer's collections by Autumn Leaves.  You will get tons of use out of them.

Part 2 is on Inks.  Distress inks are common supplies now for scrapbookers.  You can stamp with these too.  Also, did you know that Stampin' Up! inks work a lot like the distress ones?  Also in the video are ways to get a good color selection without spending a fortune.

The card above was made with a set of stamps by My Mind's Eye.  I didn't realize that these are not available on-line anymore.  However, I've linked another set of doily stamps below from Papertrey Ink. MME has several new stamp sets out with their CHA Spring release already available for purchase.  They are a very good value.  I used a distress ink (Dusty Concord) to do some of the stamping on the card above.

Here are some of the products in my videos or similar products:

  1. Wow! Your videos gave me all sorts of helpful hints. The information on different types of inks was particularly useful. Now I know what to look for and which brands to buy. Thank you! Karen S.
