Rubber Stamping for the First Time

Book Review
Even if you've never stamped anything more than the date on a business form, you'll find crafting success with Carol Scheffler's colorful and user-friendly Rubber Stamping for the First Time. Like other worthwhile books in the First Time series, this guide takes a sensible question-and-answer approach to teach techniques and offer project directions simultaneously. "How do I heat emboss?" for instance, heads up the directions for a journal; "How do I create a scene with rubber stamps?" yields a videotape cover; "How do I use stamps on wood?" introduces a decorative bowl; and so on through gift tags, note cards, picture frames, lampshades, dinnerware, a clock, and much more. Each of the 27 projects brings with it a new technique, but if you decide to jump ahead, it's simple enough to find the technique you've skipped over by...

Creative Stamping in Polymer Clay
Barbara A. McGuire
1581801556
May 2002
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Stamping on polymer clay bears little resemblance to stamping on paper, although many of the same materials are used. Stamps may be rubber or reverse impressions made from polymer clay, and the image is impressed into the clay surface, making a patterned relief. Professional artist McGuire (Foundations in Polymer Clay Design) provides detailed information on materials and techniques, with two dozen step-by-step projects for jewelry and accessories. The beauty of these pieces is in the decorative embellishments, such as embossing powders, colored inks, and gold leaf. This is an excellent addition to the growing body of literature on polymer clay. Recommended for collections needing professional-quality material on this subject.

Greeting Card Magic with Rubber Stamps
Maryjo McGraw
0891349790
June 2000
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Greeting card prices keep going up, but with a little imagination the clever crafter can make customized cards. The cards in these books go beyond simple greetings, however, and are small works of art. Twenty-two designers contributed projects to Gilchrist's book using collage, fabric, printing, and photocopies decorated and embellished to make one-of-a-kind creations. McGraw, who is well known as a rubber-stamp artist (Making Greeting Cards with Rubber Stamps), has projects that are even more artistic. Rubber-stamped impressions are just the point of departure for her colored cards, which are embellished with natural objects, beads, and photos. No one receiving any of these cards would throw them away. Both books are recommended for public libraries. Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.

An instant classic that emphasizes the author's definition of gift-wrapping as a wondrous form of self-expression. Barbara Jacobs

Book Review
With her trademark wild hues and bold graphics, "the head cheerleader of rubber stamping" (as she's been hailed) has filled a very colorful book with loads of innovative techniques. No surface is immune to her irrepressible stamping enthusiasm: in addition to paper, she stamps on glass, wood, walls, doors, fabric, and home accessories; she even uses glossy adhesive paper to create unique stamp stickers. Even experienced stampers can learn a few tricks: creating landscape imagery or "wallpaper" backgrounds; achieving airbrush and watercolor effects; using rubber-cement resist techniques; making dimensional pop-up greeting cards; as well as spattering, sponging, and texturing. Gruenig's colors are so vivid and her designs so eye-catching that it's hard not to feel cheerful just looking at them. --Amy Handy --This text...

Book Review
Rubber-stamp queen Dee Gruenig returns with more dazzling ideas, this time letting her gleeful imagination loose on another very popular craft--scrapbooking. Combining her bold and colorful approach to stamping with her lifelong love of making memory albums, she offers many delightful ways to create unforgettable pages that unite the best of both crafts. Rather than purchasing preprinted scrapbook pages, follow Gruenig's straightforward instructions to make sponged, stickered, bordered, patterned, striped, plaid, embossed, brayered, spattered, or themed backgrounds that help even the most ho-hum photos come alive. Not only do her designs nicely frame full-photo images on the page, but many are actually intricate background landscapes that cleverly incorporate individual figures cut from the photos, decoupage style. --Amy...
