Rubber Stamp


Peek-a-Boo Card

Before I got my first cutter, I was an avid scrapbooker. Before that I was an avid stamper. I got rid a lot of my stamping collection when we retired and moved, but I still have quite a huge “stash”. I haven’t used my stamping supplies for a long time, so it was fun to play with them again. Creating the rubber stamp using my Pazzles Stamp Kit was not the greatest challenge for me - using the stamp on a project was! I have been away from stamping for so long. This challenge forced me out of my comfort zone, and motivated me to play.


Rubber Stamp Kit: Falling ...

Autumn is my favorite season of the year, with cooler temperatures and gorgeous fall colors. The leaves with their multiple colors, shapes and textures always garner my attention.  This month I wanted to try my hand at making stamps with my Pazzles Inspiration Vue, inspired by the wonderful fall leaves. Pazzles stamp kit contains everything you need to create stamps—two different thicknesses of special rubber, cling mounting foam, a sanding block and acrylic block to mount your stamps.  The Pazzles Craft Room has a video  that clearly explains the entire process from finding an appropriate design to putting the stamp together. The Pazzles Craft Room Library has a collection of Falling Autumn leaves, and unable to decide which one to use, I chose three--Falling Autumn Oak, Falling Autumn Sugar Maple  and Falling Autumn Swirl Aspen.  Fall Word Titles contained the word “Blessed” which is perfect for a word stamp. It may be used for many projects and cards throughout the year, so I eliminated the leaf tail for the stamp.


Say ‘Hello’ to Making Your ...

I am constantly impressed by all of the things the Inspiration Creative Cutter can do. Since taking home my very own machine I have noticed a sharp decline in what I spend on paper crafting supplies. As a Pazzles owner, have you experienced the same effect? I often go to the craft store and come home with only patterned paper because as I am looking through the embellishments I realize I can make all of them with my Inspiration. And it doesn't stop there.



Inking and Chalking Tips

Cutting out amazing images in any color, shape and size: isn't that the magic of the Pazzles Inspiration electronic cutter? I can cut paper shapes and combine layers, colors and textures to create a visual feast for the eyes. If you stop with the paper and glue you have a great project. However, if you want an amazing project you need to move beyond the paper. You can add depth and character by inking or chalking the paper to add shadow and highlights. Suddenly, like magic, the flat pieces of paper have curves and dimension.
