I am sharing a ‘How To Stamp’ segment on a local station next week…and I’ve been having a blast stamping up some items to show.
Did you know that Hobby Lobby recently started carrying stamps?!
I can’t tell you how excited I am…..
I have shared stamping posts HERE and HERE.
I have purchased plain font cheap stamps from Harbor Freight, Ace Hardware and Menard’s and honestly they all kinda suck!
This set is from Harbor Freight for around $7 but after a few uses they flatten out….plus it’s just a plain font…nothing fancy.
This set from Menard’s is a little bit better and has held up…I like that it’s a bigger font. This set is around $10. They are nice to have for when you want to change up the font and sizes in the same project.
NOTHING compares to my Beaducation stamp set!
If you have plans to sale at craft fairs or open an Etsy shop, THIS is the place to buy your stamps.
These stamps sink like butter into anything, even heavy washers. Check out the site..they even offer FREE online classes.
I wanted to stamp for a friends wedding and splurged on a set from Beaducation. It is an awesome set BUT at over $100 I can’t afford to buy many sizes or fonts for just my hobby stamping as gifts…..
This Hobby Lobby set is so affordable at $19.99 and you can sign up for their updates and receive the 40% off coupon.
They sell 2 sizes 2mm and 3mm in upper and lower cases and 2 choices of pretty fonts.
They even sell a nice little Steel Block that you need for stamping on….
I have been using a giant bulky ugly anvil from the hubby’s shop!
To stamp you will need:
- Steel Block
- Alcohol Wipes
I also always have a washer or a practice blank to stamp on to check my letter placement….with fancy fonts it’s sometimes hard to tell the difference between an ‘e’ and an ‘a’ or which side is up. So a quick stamp on a practice blank will save you a lot of time and frustration.
This is the smaller 2mm lowercase stamps from Hobby Lobby.
After you get it all stamped, just color letters with a sharpie and wipe clean with rubbing alcohol or alcohol wipes.
Add a charm and necklace and you have an adorable gift to give someone you love!
If you are looking for design stamps like this double heart or maybe some baby feet or a flower....then
Beaducation is the place to find it!
This is the uppercase 3mm from Hobby Lobby.
This is the upper and lower case 3mm stamps from Hobby Lobby.
The font is a little different than the 2mm.
These are my awesome Kismet numbers from Beaducation.
This is my Kismet lowercase Beaducation set that will stamp on ANYTHING!
Don't forget it's Teacher Appreciation Week!
What will YOU stamp??
Thank you so much for stopping by!!
Check out all the places I party!
