Making rubber stamps is a fun and therapeutic activity. But for me, that’s really only the first part. After making them, figuring out what to use them for is just as fun.
In fact, many people ask me this question: If I learn to make a stamp, what do I do with it? My answer to that – quite a lot! With my stamps, I am able to create my own stationery and postcards. I also use my stamps for scrapbooking and journaling, to personalise notebooks, create patterns on large sheets of paper to use for wrapping presents and with some textile ink, I can stamp on canvas bags and other fabric items.
At the beginning of this season, I started making summer-themed rubber stamps. I’ve made several already which I mix and match to create playful patterns. I’ve been making cards with them, which i intend to give away and mail to friends. I have more on my list of “summer stamps to make” and I hope I get to finish them all before the season ends… We’ll see!
If you are interested in learning how to make your own rubber stamps using your very own designs, I will be holding a Rubber Stamp-Making Workshop this coming Sunday at Sophie’s Mom, Tuscany, Mckinley Hill, Taguig. I’m doing this in partnership with Manila Workshops & Memory Crafters. For more information and to register, please click HERE.
I also accept custom orders. For inquiries, kindly email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
