Stamp it Up!

Sewing Supplies

I’ve delved into my stamp collection this past week. Courtesy of a Freecycler I acquired a rather large collection of stamps and ink about 6 months ago and haven’t used them often. I decided to experiment some more with them this week and am really pleased with the results! Above I decorated plain painted formula cans with cute stamps. The cans are perfect for storing so many things, but here they house thread spools, fuse, velcro, pencils and many other supplies.

Plain Shade

Stamps are a really fun way to dress up a boring lamp shade! The lamp shade on my sewing table is far from inspiring. The lamp itself actually needs some work, but that’s a different story.

All you need are stamps, ink, and a clean surface…

I love owl prints!

Stamps are just one more way you can turn recyclable products into personalized works of art or you can dress up home decor! Stamps can be found as inexpensive as 25 cents per stamp or you can make your own! You can make stamps out of LOTS of items…

  • Leaves
  • Bamboo or straws for stripes
  • Toilet paper rolls for circles

You can also carve stamps in potatoes. Cut a potato in half and use an exacto knife or kitchen knife to carve out your choice of designs in the potato. Stamps can be used with stamp ink or paint.
