playing with stamps

Lately I've been playing with little stamps. Throughout the years I collected lots of stamps, and I thought it was time to finally do something with them! Oh, if I had the time I would like to experiment much more.

For a while now I've been admiring two stamping artists on Etsy: Leililaloo and Lapomme , check out their shops and blogs , they make beautiful creations by the use of handmade stamps on fabric.

I made some tags and embellishments for my packaging.

The little flower stamps are a set, it's a french edition, in fact I bought the for the kids, but I ended up using them too! the possiblilities are endless with these stamps, as you see I use them for making cars and pimping my jewelry boxes.

I recently bought also some clear stamps, a kind of plastic stamp that can be reused, with these curly letters you can form any word you wish.

The big wooden stamps are from India . I bought them in the local Fair Trade shop, the sellers asked me what I was going to do with it, well I had no idea, I just had to buy it -). and now it's here, just being decorative.
