Hello, my name is Betsy Veldman, and I’m a stamper.
Five years ago, I wouldn’t have used that word to describe myself as a crafter. Paper crafter, yes. Stamper, no.
But, the world of stamping has expanded so much in the past five years or so, and I feel like I’ve grown right along with it in my stamping abilities. Now there really isn’t anything I enjoy more than sitting down with a stamp set or two (or ten or twelve…yes, my stamp collection has grown too!) and seeing what I can create. So much design potential lies in those little bits and pieces!
Needless to say, I’m excited to join in on the Stamp It! 3 Ways celebration this week.
Keeping with the spirit of the issue, I chose a stamp set to play with today and created three cards for you. I chose to work with a set from My Favorite Things called Document it – Off the Chart, designed by Creating Keepsakes Dream Team member Laina Lamb (who I had the pleasure of meeting at CHA a few weeks ago!).
My first card would be perfect for the guy in your life, maybe for an anniversary, a birthday, or just to say “I love you”! I added the little “not to scale” pun by printing it onto cardstock using my computer.
One stamp set, lots of possibilities…that’s what the Stamp It! 3 Ways issue is all about! It will have you looking at your stamps in a whole new light.
How about a giveaway? I’ll choose one commenter to take home the Off the Chart stamp set I used here as well as a copy of the new Stamp It! 3 Ways. Just leave a comment telling me a little about your stamping style: are you where I was about five years ago—just starting to dabble in stamping, or do you consider yourself a tried and true stamper? Or somewhere in between? I’d love to hear!
Stamping it always,
Betsy Veldman, Paper Crafts Go-to Gal
