What you can do with stamps

Some things are just self-explanatory and stamps are probably one of them. Just put some ink on them and start stamping. True, but sometimes you just need a little inspiration. Otherwise you might miss out on some incredible things you can craft with stamps. We received a catalog from the Japanese company Kodomo No Kao with wonderful stamping examples that we wanted to share with you. We carry a lot of their stamps and inking pads, so it will be easy for you to copy certain designs.

Of course it won’t surprise you much that stamps are great for crafting cards. But look at those super pretty combinations of different stamps and inking pads. A nice technique is to stamp on another piece of paper, cut out the design and glue it onto your card, photo album or whatever you want to to embellish. Like this you can also create 3D effects as you can see on the wooden box.

A super simple but also great idea is to stamp on plain paper bags or gift tags. It looks really classy and is also a great substitute for wrapping paper. Especially if you want to give away lots of presents at once, this is a great way to save time and still have a unique packaging.

Did you know that with the right inking pads you can also stamp on fabrics, leather, tiles, wood or metal? It’s really unbelievable. We totally love the photo with the stamps on the plastic bags and the little basket. We have to say that the inking pads you can get in our shop are mainly to be used on paper. If we get special inking pads for other materials we’ll let you know right away.
