Teresa Collins Stampmaker — Make your own Custom Stamps!! {tutorial and information on the giveaway}

Happy Friday!! 
I’d love to tell you about something really cool.
This was one of my favorite products I saw at the CHA show in February. 
You make custom stamps!!
{One of my goals this year is to share some of my favorite things. 
Here’s another one. 
More information on how to win a Stampmaker at the bottom of this post} 

If you are getting married, you can design a “save the date stamp”, you can make your own address stamps, or sweet would it be to make a stamp from your child’s artwork or handwriting? Or another cute idea would be to make a book plate stamp with your child’s name — the sky’s the limit!!! 

So when the the Stampmaker people contacted me and offered to send me a machine, I was so excited about the possibilities! I have just started to experiment with it, but seriously — it’s so easy to use.

The Stampmaker machine comes with artwork from Teresa Collins that is already done, as well as sheets that you can run through your ink jet printer and make your own stamps. 
I made a little plaque for my little puppy!  
She is the queen of the house, so I thought it was fitting to use the crown artwork that comes with the Stampmaker. 

Here’s a tutorial on how to use the Stampmaker: 

1. Plug the Stampmaker machine in. You need to let it warm up for a minute before you use it.

2. Open the Frame Clamps and insert one of the gel packs.

3. Then put your negative image artwork on top.

4. Shut the magnetic frame and put the frame inside the Stampmaker.

5. Leave it inside for THREE minutes — time it.

6. Take it out and cut the gel pack out of the plastic.

7. Scrub the excess gel off with soap and water.

8. Then put the stamp in the exposure tray and cover with a layer of water.

9. Put the tray inside the Stampmaker for TWO minutes. Time it.

10. Take it out and trim around the stamps. Then mount the stamps on the adhesive paper. Cut around that.

11. Mount the stamp on the acrylic stamp acrylic block.

Then use and enjoy! 

I also made my own stamp — the name of our puppy — TRIXIE. I designed the name in the software and then printed it off on the special negative film. You need to use an inkjet printer for this. Then I followed the rest of the steps to make the stamp.

I used Command hook to hang the little TRIXIE frame over her little dog bed. She loves it :) 
The possibilities are endless with this Stampmaker. Plus, check out the Photocentric blog where they have free image downloads so you can make even more stamps!! These are the free June downloads  —

  1. I love my stampmaker! I just have to buy more packets, they are hard to find at a good price. I would like to buy more than five at a time. Kind of expensive plus the cost of the machine.
