For all of you crafters and would-be crafters who have yet to dive into the world of stamping, I really hope that this project will convince you that stamping is an oh-so-necessary addition to your life. Sure you can stamp on paper and make pretty cards and tags – but you can also make this:

You can use clear stamps or rubber stamps for this projects – pretty much anything goes here. When it comes to your ink – I suggest pigment ink for a crisp impression that won’t bleed onto the sheets. Check out the supply list before for the colors I used.

Handstamped Monogram Notepad Block | Damask Love{1} Place the notepad cube between the thick pieces of cardboard and wrap rubberbands around, exposing the edge that you will be stamping on. This will ensure that the sheets are squeezed together tightly, which will make it much easier to stamp on them.

{2} Stamp on the sides of the pad using whatever design you choose. I really like the Lawn Fawn Penelope’s Blossom  stamp set. The small flowers allow you to stamp a pretty floral design in a small space.

{3} You can also make a beautiful notepad with a background stamp. Ink up the background stamp as shown…

{4} Firmly press the paper pad down onto the background stamp using even pressure to ensure that you get a complete impression on the side of the pad.

{5} All done! Repeat on the other three exposed sides and then stamp the front side with your monogram.

This would be a great one to add to the list.

  1. The notepad blocks are adorable! I must try one. I was thinking of you yesterday while I was in Joanns, I went in to find a small frame, which I didn’t find but I did get a bunch of Fisker’s stamp sets that were on clearance for .97 cents. How can you beat that!! Even is you do have way too many stamps already, how could you pass that up? 🙂
