Go WILD with Stamps!

There is nothing better than just experimenting when it comes to stamping.  I just love sitting down and letting the photos I wish to scrap “talk to me” and lend me to using all kinds of cool stamps… especially maybe not in the way they were intended.

Here’s a layout I created showcasing my son and how’s he’s “my world”…

My World

Here are areas that inspired me to use all kinds of myStamp BOX stamps on this layout…

These “male gender” symbols are from the He Says – She Says stamp set.  Notice I stamped on the chipboard star from one of our Preferred Partners, Magistical Memories using the new Backgrounds stamp set too.

I added this fun tag detail using the Road Trip set…

I made a cluster of stamped images in between my two photos.  I used the new netted star from the Back to Basics set, layering it with the male symbol from She Says – He Says stamp set.  The fun arrow and the seal are from the Road Trip set.


I knew I wanted to hide a little bit of hidden message inside my star chipboard so I took a subtle blue and then a green ink and stamped the “YOU” from the She Says – He Says set right over top of my patterned paper.  Then I created my layered title using two different alphabet sets, Funky Alphabet and Royal Flush.

I also used the equals sign (=) from the She Says – He Says to create the look of a strip of lined green paper.  It’s amazing the designs you can make with simple stamps!

In order to add some journaling to my page I used the journaling tag stamp from Just Add Notes set.  The circle stamp is from the fun Funky Circles set and the date block stamp is from the  Bold Blocks set.

I wanted to create some fun visual effects using circles so I pulled out my Funky Circles stamps and incorporated them with my Lots of Numbers set.  My son is five so that’s the significance of the number.

One final touch was the addition of the corrugated cardboard stamp from the new Backgrounds stamp set plus a cute little star from the Review Time set to complete the look.

I had a ball creating this layout.  So many details and SO much fun to create!  All in all, I ended up using ELEVEN different stamp sets!  Yup… ELEVEN!!

I hope I’ve inspired you to get out your stamp sets today and go WILD!   Pull out some fun photos and let them inspire you add all kinds of fun stamped images to your page.

Happy stamping!
