Stamping is not just for paper.

Remember to think outside the box.  You can stamp on more than just cardstock.  Recently I ran across an idea to stamp on wood to create those signs that it seems everyone is doing right now.  If you stamp on glass with basic black you will want to take a heat gun to fully dryContinue reading “Stamping is not just for paper.”
