Free Printable Design Grids for Pattern Stamping Part 1

Halloooo you. I recently highlighted a way of using a light box with some printed grids to create pattern stamping designs and had a fair few questions on where you could get those print outs.

The ones that I used were very old and I created those a long time ago and don’t have the originals so have set about creating a whole new set for you to play with.

Over the next two Stamp It Sunday posts I will be sharing printable grids and design ideas for square designs, rectangular designs, oval designs and circular designs so I hope that you will continue to ‘tune in’ and take a look at these neat little helpers.

This project started out with the Poinsettia Gift Tag Stamp from Designs by Georgina. I stamped this out onto Kraft card using an Archival Inkpad; this was then cut out around the outer edge.

Ok, so I remembered to do this post. This is a good thing when you consider that just lately my brain appears to be melting away.

I’ll wander from one room to another and think, “now, what did I come in here for?” and then I’ll remember several hours later. Continue Reading…

Hello again my lovely readers. How are you today? Well I hope.

Here were are at number 76 in the Artist Trading card 365 challenge and I’ve put the quilling tools down and headed back into the stamp collection for today’s creation.

I don’t know about where you live but the sun has been shining here lately and a lot of nature’s bounty is starting to show signs of popping into life so I thought that I would use this as today’s theme.

The key to happiness is quite elusive. According to some rubber stamps that accompanied this month’s issue of Get Stamping the message is clear, “Doing what you like is freedom; Liking what you do is happiness”.

I guess that they have a point.

Anyway, don’t worry, I’m not going to waffle on about philosophy and all that. I think that you can guess that this post is in fact about something that I made with the stamps that I got with the magazine.
