Rock Your Stamps

Just added....We're giving away our last Cottage Christmas Collection samples for the week and we thought we'd end it by adding in the i-rock tool too!!

Hi there, Scrappers! I'm Aphra, Imaginisce's guest blogger today.

Ok, I know you don't know me very well, but I feel the need to get something off my chest. Every month or so, the folks at Imaginisce send us Design Team girls a ginormous box of goodies. And every box contains about six stamps per line. So far, I've amassed a whopping 72 PRECIOUS stamps.

I ooohhh and ahhh over their cuteness every month. And then I pack them up and put them in my super special Imaginisce stamp box. They are vintage . . . never been used . . . in mint condition. Probably not what Imaginisce had in mind, hun?

So, when Lori asked me to guest blog, I thought I might push the envelope a little and actually use one of my stamps. Hey, maybe even two. Since I don't have any Copic markers or watercolor pencils and my ink box mostly consists of black and brown, I had to come up with something a little different. That's where the i-rock comes in. Here we go.


First, gather your supplies.
Next, stamp your image onto a piece of neutral cardstock.
Arrange your crystals along the lines of the image.
Set the crystals with your i-rock.
Embellish and add to your project.
Repeat.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you'll try rocking out your stamps. See you soon!

Aphra... that is just the cutest 'blingy' pumpkin and such a clever idea. Thanks for sharing the how-to!

Oh....great idea! I was just going through my stamps....I am ashamed to say how many i have! lol I <3 my i*rock as well and am definitely going to have to try this!

scrapinmo said...

Very cool! Thanks for a simple yet sometimes forgotten way to use our supplies.

Vicki said...

Love this. I too have lots of unused stamps because I'm afraid I'll mess up the image (too light, too dark). Your clever idea covers that, literally. Thanks so much for sharing.
