Stamp Week | Intro + Basics

Welcome to Stamp Week 2020!

My simple goal this week is to get you using + enjoying your stamps to get your stories told. 

I view stamps as a tool in my storytelling toolbox. Most of the stamps we offer are word/sentiment based stamps to help support or spark stories. I love adding a stamp here or there on my projects as well as using sentiments on the stamps as jumping off points/prompts for my stories.

Here's the initial schedule for this week (posts won't necessarily be up first thing in the morning): 

  • Monday: Alphas
  • Tuesday: Prompts
  • Wednesday: Numbers
  • Thursday: Backgrounds + Patterns
  • Friday: Mixed Media + Art Journaling 

If you share your own awesome stamping ideas please use the hashtag #aestampweek on Instagram.

STAMP BASICS

To kick off this week I put together a video showing you how I currently organize my stamps and a few basics about what you need to get started with stamps. 

I'll be back with another video later today focusing on using alphabet stamps. 

GOALS THIS WEEK

This week is an awesome opportunity to work with the stamps you have in your stash or get started with stamping. Here are a few things you might consider for your own goals this week: 

  • Organize your stamps. The act of going through the stamps you already have in your possession can be awesome inspiration to start using them. Just flipping through some of the ones I haven't seen in awhile started giving me ideas. 
  • Start with stamps. Rather than starting with other embellishments this week, start with your stamps and see what you can use to be the foundation of your story. 
  • Play + have fun! Don't worry about the mess or imperfection - to me this is just a part of stamping generally - just have fun experimenting with your stamps. 
  • Be the boss of your stamps. Make them work for you - they are there to help support your stories!
  • Get some stories told. This is always, always, always the goal.

    Any plans to make refills for the crafters inks? Mine are still juicy but I'm just wondering about the future. Thanks.

    Will you carry alpha and number stamps for sale at all times?

      We generally have some alpha and number sets available. Is that what you are asking?

    Hi there Ali, I received the email alerting me to the stamp sale. I have hunted for the mixed alpha set that is photographed in the email but it doesn't appear to be in your shop. Have you discontinued that particular stamp?

    So if you do the stories by the month subscription, I assume the discount only is for the first month if you do 6 MOS or a year. I know a whole year at 5 a month is way too good to be true!

      I still have some of them but don't regularly use them - the main reason being that most are no longer available.

    Loving following along and using all my stamps. Ali have you ever done a flip through of your story albums?

    I am so happy to see you using and combining stamps from past and present story stamps as I have almost all of them (maybe missed the first one). It is great to see ideas on how to combine them and incorporate other stamps in with them. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I really love stamps, but I do not use them very often. Also I do not know which stamps I have in my stash. It would be great to see if there is a storage solution which allows us to use them regularly. Mine are all packed in the original packaging and sometims it is really annoying to pull them out first before I can use them. But I love to have them in the original package. I can see better which brand etc.
