Grab Your Stamps – It’s a Stamp It! 3 Ways Stamping Challenge

Stacy Grab Your Stamps   Its a Stamp It! 3 Ways Stamping Challenge

Stacy Croninger - Digital Managing Editor

Hi friends,

It’s true confession time. Do your stamps take up one shelf or drawer? Two shelves or drawers? An entire wall? Well I’m right there with you – I have five clear shoe box style boxes (the big ones), a desktop drawer set with four drawers, two three-ring binders, and a stack that I haven’t found homes for yet (and yes, that stack falls over on a regular basis). But I LOVE my stamps, as I’m sure you do. And if we love them then we better start using them.

Which brings me to today’s challenge – stamping multiple ways with one stamp set. In honor of Stamp It! 3 Ways, I’ve created three tags that each uses the stamp set in a different way – as a background (Thanks tag – used a monochromatic color and then popped three pennants using orange), to create an accent (For You tag – pennants create the flower’s petals), and stamped on a different medium (Thanks tag – stamped pennants on canvas). Typically, when you have a challenge, the participants all use the same thing. But for today’s challenge, you can use any stamp set you want. Old, new, flowers, pets, whatever grabs your fancy. The only thing I ask is that you create three items using the stamp set in three different ways. If you want to use what I did, great! If you want to come up with your own, that works just as well.

Here are my three tags.

    Nice tags and post, Stacy. I’m trying to extend the use of my stamps, but don’t have the same “vision” as you pros do. I’d like to see more posts like this.
