Welcome to day two of stamping inspiration and giveaways!
For seven days (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Monday, Tuesday -- we're skipping the weekend & there's a special unrelated post on Friday night coming at you) I will be giving away one of my brand new stamp sets from Canadian stamp manufacturer, Stamping Bella! All of the stamps are specifically aimed at art journaling. Of course you can use them for lots of different things, but my intention in creating them was for you to use them when you art journal! If you'd like to win today's featured stamp, leave a comment answering the question of the day (find it at the end of this post). You must answer the question of the day if you want to win! On Thursday, May 12, I will post all seven winners!
And, of course, if you want to buy any of the featured stamps, you can find them all here.
I looooooved reading why everyone loves stamps so much on yesterday's post! Because I got a few e-mails about this, let me reiterate that you have to leave a comment in the comments section of my blog to have a chance to win. If you're a subscriber and get my blog in your e-mail inbox, you'll need to click through to the actual site. At the bottom of the post you'll see the word "comments" followed by a number in parentheses. Click on the word comments and you can answer the question of the day!
Four hand drawn ticket shapes perfect for all kinds of journaling, adding dates, or simply using as decorative elements!
When I was designing this line of art journaling stamps I thought long and hard about what kind of stamps I wanted, but couldn't find anywhere. The perfect circles from yesterday were the absolute first thing that popped into my mind! These tickets were number two. Why?
See that stamp second from the top? It's a bit obscured by the logo. That's the stamp that kicked off this whole set. In my daily art journal I write the day-of-the-week, the date, and the time next to every single entry. Sometimes I stamp little ovals or doilies around the date to make it look cute. But I wanted something more square that wasn't a square. Enter the divided ticket! Perfection!
BUT, the stamps are even more versatile than that! Here's a quick video of me using them to create a cool pattern:
- Jet Black Archival Ink from Ranger

- miscellaneous: paint brushes, water
