STAMPS

STAMPS

With card making the most popular paper craft hobby in the UK, having a wide selection of stamps is business critical. For card makers, a stamped image using embossing powder is probably the most common embellishment on a handmade greeting card. With a nearly infinite selection of stamp brands in the marketplace today, we attempt to keep in stock brands which manufacture designs most conducive to our customers crafting styles.

At Handy Hippo Crafts, you will find an enormous selection of Stamps in different types and themes to choose from, just pick your preferred style. Styles include, wood mounted rubber, unmounted cling or clear stamps.

Here’s some helpful information to help you decide which style suits you best:

Although Cling Stamps have been in production for several years now, they are the newest of the three concepts in the stamping world. The first being the Rubber Stamp, which is a design that has been deeply etched into red rubber and mounted on a wood block. Next came the Clear Stamps, constructed of photo polymer and sometimes vinyl. Clear Stamps are see-through, making them easy to use when positioning on your project.

Cling Stamps are a combination of Rubber Stamps and Clear Stamps. Typically made from red rubber with a foam backing, Cling and clear stamps are space-saving unmounted stamps that stick to Acrylic Blocks -- no adhesive is required. So you can attach and remove them as many times as you like. What's more, a copy of the stamp design is printed on the foam back, which allows you to see it through the acrylic block to line up your stamp accurately.

Regardless of the style of stamps you use, all stamps should be cleaned after every use with water or a Stamp Cleaner.

Whether or not you are artistic, but would love to create greeting cards with colourful images, you will be delighted with the immediate results that can be achieved with Stamping. Even a creatively challenged person can add a stamped image to paper and produce the beginnings of a great handmade card. Follow this by adding a sentiment and attach an Embellishment and voila – a greeting card!
