This is by no means a "comprehensive" look at stamping. For that
there was no better place than A Monthly Rubber Stamp Club's
TIPS and TECHNIQUES It
was assessable, easy to follow--possibly the most complete, up-to-date
collection of samples, directions, hints and helps around. A virtual
how-to "Stampers' Encyclopedia" that is sure to solve your stamping
dilemmas, (plenty of good ideas for "rescuing" projects) and ideas
to inspire you to get stamping! (Like you needed that!) Note: Unfortunately this site no longer exists. This incredible resource has disappeared into cyberspace
: ( If you visited there and saved your favorites, you are very lucky.
For a different approach, the transcripts of classes at Cyberstampers.com
are fun to read, lead you to lots of graphics to help you "see" step-by-step
and to just enjoy (vicariously) the camaraderie of the group. Join
them for real, by checking their class schedule and instructions for
reaching their chat rooms. Note: This site too no longer exists. Both of these were early pioneers in Cyberstamping and getting stamp artists together to share. They are both, sadly, missed.
All is not lost!!! Google searches turn up many sites with great instructions. More than you want--or have time--to know!
For one of the simplest, frienliest sites currently available visit Rubberstampchat. A forum format, it has many sections of interest. There are tutorials and tips and techniques to be had for the scrolling. And plenty of places to ask questions.
gg designs is presenting random samples customers have graciously
provided, plus ideas and hints that may be helpful to you. There is
no particular rhyme or reason, it's just a fun collection of "stuff."
If you have an idea to share or a technique you think we'd all enjoy,
please share. The more, the merrier.
For another place with ideas and tutorials, visit the Gazette and scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find links to tutorials and challenges started in 2009. Lots of information and good ideas there.
