We love the clever and amazing ways our Design Team uses stamps! Today, we share 2 fabulous tutorials from Rhea Freitag and Andrew Roberts to think outside traditional stamping. Make molds and dimensional projects with your stamps!
"I knew that I was going to be facing a bit of a challenge when posed to create a stamping tutorial. Since I am more of a mixed media girl I wanted to try and embrace my style the best I could while successfully completing the assignment. While I had a few challenges along the way, I am happy with the result. I made molds from my favorite Stamps from the Steampunk Spells line to create my own coordinating embellishments for this small Matchbook Box shrine. I hope you are now inspired to look at your stamp stash in an entire new way!" ~Rhea

"This project was inspired by my love of heat embossing. The By the Sea stamps are a set of fabulous images that are perfect for heat embossing. We are also going in to warmer weather here in Australia and Graphic 45’ By the Sea collection is perfect for this of time of year.
Tip: Heat embossed Stamped images are great to fussy cut for use as embellishments." ~Andrew
