  1. Hi Lindsay I have a question for you. I have some wooden stamps…like what they use for making batik fabrics. I want to use them. I’ve tried using a stamp pad to no avail. It doesn’t look good at all. Any suggestions. I bought 3 at the Houston quilt expo in November. HELP. Thank you so much. Pam

    • they are for fabric so you need to treat your paper like fabric, pick a soft printmaking paper and wet it then blot off the excess water, then you can try ink or paint on the stamp, applying paint with a brayer to the stamp is your best bet I think.

  2. Very pretty card. I love it. I sit down to rest my back been cutting out quilt pieces that is going to take me forever to cut out. It is so relaxing to watch you. We had a little ice and snow this morning so we came back home after a couple of hours. Can’t drill any water wells in this weather. Stay warm.

  3. I have made this card before but you made it look so easy-liked the idea of using a grommet to stop the pull out part.

  7. Beautiful card…and quick question – does Stazon ruin clear stamps?

    Like

    • it stains them wicked, I have heard it is bad for them, another reason to love red rubber.

    • If you are going to use Stazon, you must clean your stamps immediately. I also purchased a special stazon cleaner for my stamps which seems to clean the stamps well. I haven’t seen as much staining as I did before using it. Warning though- it does have a distinct odor with a caution to use in a well ventilated area.

      The card is fabulous. I have a perfect size flower stamp in my stash that would work well with this, along with some paper that I love, but just didn’t work in a scrap book. Can’t wait to try it out.

  13. Hi Lindsey, thanks for sharing this fun card! Question: would you please provide the specific brand name, etc. of the blending pen you used? I’m new to watercolor pencils, I’ve seen the water filled pens, but not one like you use in the video, it looked more like a pencil itself. Thanks much, stay warm!

  14. Loved the card !! Can’t wait to give it a try. I don’t have any grommets or a crop a dial, I thing using staples would make the car look incomplete, any suggestions on what else to use? Thank you for sharing.
