Stamps, stamps and more stamps! They’re the first thing I look for when I walk through the doors at Michaels. The problem is that they can be surprisingly pricey so I always use a store coupon or root through the bargain bin for any new additions.
It has taken me a very long time but I have finally filled a shoe box full of stamps. Some were gifts, others were smartly purchased on sale and a handful were lucky finds at the thrift shop. Most of my collection consists of wooden block stamps but I have a few packs of clear cling rummer ones as well. Stamps are key in making my tile art because I use them to design the tiles and imprint the clay. Having a wide range of them helps me to create more diverse pieces so that no two are exactly alike. I can follow different themes or pick and choose stamps that represent the person I’m making the piece for. These are some of the most recent stamps that have been added to my shoe box.
