Meanwhile, I thought I'd share some projects I created especially for Hampton Art using their beautiful stamp sets in the Typography collection for Graphic 45. Hampton Art creates stamps for many companies, Graphic 45 being one of them. You may have seen some of their sets in your local craft store, and of course you can find them in your local scrapbook store (if you're lucky enough to have one in your area) or online in stores like Scrapbook.com and others.
These are the three sets in the Typography collection. Cling Stamp 1, 2 and 3. They are red-rubber cling stamps and their quality is top notch. I'm a stamper, so I was pleasantly surprised how nice they worked.
Here are several projects I created for them. You may recognize some of them from my CHA recap photos.
Mini album using Maya Road covers. Lots of stamping using all three of the sets throughout the album, plus Graphic 45's Typography collection, including papers and chipboard. You can see how fond I am of the fountain pen stamp in particular.
I love the look of stamping on patterned paper. The alphabet stamp (in red) creates a dimensional layer over the dictionary page background. The fountain pens are stamped and cut out, inked around the edges and then adhered for even more dimension.
I may have to make another one of these for myself, I liked it so much.
Here are a four cards. Card 1 measures 5 x 7 inches.
Card 2 is also 5 x 7.
Card 3 is a 6 x 6 easel card.
Card 4 is a 5 x 5 card featuring the Pop-n-Cuts Label die.
And finally is this stationary box, which started with a plain wooden box from the craft store.
Isn't Typography the best? I just love it. These are some of my favorite stamps I own now.
We're still waiting to hear if Home Shopping Network will be carrying these in March. If so, my samples will be on TV! I'll be sure to keep you posted if that happens.
Thanks for stopping in today. Now it's back to the craft room for me. Have a great day!
