Hello, my name is Stephanie Low and I am a licensed designer for Spellbinders. I have always been an artist and began illustrating for tattoos several years ago. Now I get to add stamps and dies to my illustration resume and it is so fun and rewarding! I cannot even get over seeing people using my stamps for their own projects. Like in all seriousness, I stalk the internet for people and projects like an addict! It is an amazing feeling.
I illustrated this Handmade stamp collection with this in mind. I want creatives like me to make cute things and give them to those that they love – and I want to see all of the projects!!! Here are some of the fun samples that my homies over at Spellbinders made with my stamps and I am in love with them!
This blog post here: Goodies & Gifties shows several projects I cranked out for this purpose. And then of course Spellbinders blog never has a shortage of cute and inspired ideas of how to use my stamps and dies. The card in the link above and stamp set has been a huge favorite of everyone who comes across the collection.
There are so many great card samples to choose from so I wanted to try to come up with several NON-Card options for this because the whole theory behind this is we don’t just give cards to those we love, we give GIFTS!
I used this image in a previous post and had made several little tags designed to accompany the handmade gifts we give to those we love. It is an added layer of sentimental thoughtfulness which we can never have enough of.
I had a blast making these little cross stitch beauties and they would make great gifts or even the making of a gift tag if you take them out of the embroidery hoops and cut them into tag shapes!
The “Handcrafted” project is so simple, I just stamped the word twice by first masking off the “Crafted” part and then only stamping the “Hand” part in order to have the words stacked on one another. Then I simply stitched over the stamped image in alternating rainbow colors! The rose is a die from my “Good Vibes Only” collection which will hit the shop very soon!
I am in love with my little sewing box – except that it actually doesn’t hold all my sewing stuff but that is irrelevant… I got this cute little wooden box at Target (of course) and immediately I knew I was going to stamp on it! How perfect are those buttons stamped on there!?!?! Stupendous! I am such a nerd and get excited about silly things. These button images were designed after real vintage buttons and I wish I could have made a dozen of them. They are each so cute and unique!
I keep buttons in this box and my embroidery stuff. Someday I will fill it entirely with buttons. I should talk to Tammy Tutterow who is also button obsessed!
Ok – last one – PROMISE. I keep all sorts of little bits of things and I had this little linen bag from some packaging at some point, so I apologize that I cannot tell you where you can find something like this. I just keep things that many people throw away and then re-purpose them! I simply stamped my “one of a kind” stamp on there with permanent ink, traced parts of it with Gelly Roll pens, filled it with Hershey kisses and called it good for my neighbor who needed a bit of chocolate! Done! I would say the Gelly Roll ink would likely bleed if it got wet but I am not sure.
Thank you for taking the time to check out my ideas and my stamps and for those that leave comments, I love you extra special!
Much Love, Stephanie Low
