Learn to Stamp a Masterboard and a Freebie!

Hi friends! Today we are going to hop in the crafty time machine to when rubber stamping was in its hey-day. Scrapbooking was not a popular hobby yet so we did not have access to all of the gorgeous papers that we can get today so we had to make our own backgrounds. Well, everything old is new again and we are making backgrounds with gelli plates and other mediums but let’s not forget about our good old stamps! I am using stamps from the More Bugz set from Lost Coast Designs. Here is the journal page I made that inspired this tutorial:

DCF 1.0

But I wondered if I might like it better without the stenciling and collage so I made this card:

I just could not decide so I will show you the entire process and YOU can decide where you want to stop. This is known as creating a master-board:

I mentioned in the video that you might love your creation so much that you will want to photocopy it so you do not have to cut up the actual paper. I asked Linda, the owner of Lost Coast Designs if I could share a high-resolution photo of the master-boards I made for my blog readers to print and use and she said “Sure, why not!” so if you click on the photos below it will take you to a larger image you can save and print. Thanks Linda! It pays to do business with good companies like Lost Coast Designs!

That’s it for today. I just ordered a new microphone and I have a project I want to try it out on! Have a great day and til next time happy crafting!

  1. I’m confused. Please explain……..if it’s a masterboard that I’ve created, why would I need to ask permission to photocopy it or use it?


    1. it’s just because some stamp companies do not allow mechanical reproduction of the stamped images. Most will allow this though because you cannot extract the image from the design.


  2. Lindsey,

    A big thank you. I look forward to all your posting and videos. I have learn so much from you.
    I just order the stamp set from LC. Love the dragon fly.

    Just created my first Art Journaling pages last night. One question is there a good brush to use with the gel medium (modge pog) that can be used over and over again. In the past I always used a sponge brush and tossed it. Trying very hard to be green.
