Stamps are one of the most versatile tools in a paper crafter or scrapbooker’s arsenal! You can change a stamp’s look by stamping with a different ink color, use it to create a paper pieced design, or combine several to create a unique design, and that’s just a few of the options. As you’re about to see, the stamp sets in the Anthology line offer tons of options for creating layouts, cards, party items, and more.
We’re going to start with the upper left corner and work our way around these images. Each stamp set comes in a heavy cardstock folder that closes on the back with velcro. They’re the perfect size to store in a shoe box (the plastic ones with lids) to help you keep your stamps organized. If you buy the CEO kit, it includes a 6 x 8 binder with photo pocket sleeves you can use to store and organize your stamps. This option is very portable and offers a quick view of each stamp. Isn’t it great to have multiple ways to store things?
Along the bottom you’ll see how cute and trendy the stamp designs are. That fox (which by the way is hand draw) just makes me swoon! Each stamp set includes images as well as sentiments that make it easy to create titles, journaling, and card sentiments. The possibilities are endless.
Finally, there’s ink and acrylic blocks. If you’re new to stamping, these ink sets offer a variety of colors to get you started. If you already have ink, you’ll love that they stack, which keeps them organized and they take up minimal space. Plus, there are several coordinated color sets so you can pick the colors that appeal to you or get them all, because you can never have too many ink colors!
The stamp sets for Anthology are clear acrylic, which means you’ll need a block to attach them to for stamping. The Anthology product line includes a set with several sizes so you can use one stamp or several at one time. Acrylic stamps and blocks make it so easy to stamp because you can see where you’re placing your image or words, plus you can combine multiple stamps on one block for a longer title or unique scene. Prepare to fall in love with these stamps and tools!
Each month there will be a new stamp set, but remember, each release has limited quantities so if you see one you love, you better get it because it may not be available later. And this blog post shows only a portion of the stamp sets. Once we launch, you’ll see the entire stamp set, ink color options, and acrylic block set. Is the suspense killing you? It certainly is me!
Come back on Monday for a peek at one of the kits included in the CEO Kit. Until then, have fun creating!
