Stamping Intervention

My name is Erin, and I have tons of unused stamps. We all have them, and most of us wish we used them more often. I'm not sure why there is such a reluctance by many to use stamps on scrapbook pages and cards. Maybe we forget we have them, are afraid of making a mistake, are uneasy with the permanence of ink, or just unsure of how to incorporate them. With ideas like these, there is no need to be afraid of your stamps any longer! I challenge you to pull some out this week and use them.

Practical Scrapper Erin used Tim Holtz Distress Markers and a water pen to colour these stamps by KaiserCraft.

Practical Scrapper Mary Pat

Practical Scrapper Ann Jobes used this sweet stamp set from Your Next Stamp, a style typically used for a card, to create this birthday page. 

Practical Scrapper Jayma used flower stamps to create her own patterned paper.

Practical Scrapper Caz used a Studio Calico stamp set to create the background

Waving hand frantically, I'm the same way! Have too many stamps that haven't been used. Just too many stamps and too little time I guess. I love using them on layouts and I don't know why I don't do it more.
Love your beautiful projects today, very pretty.

I mostly use the ones with sayings for cards. I have several alphabet stamp sets and I can't remember the last time I used them
