Welcome Back

In today’s post I would like to share a picture of a piece of stampbord jewellery that I made back in May 2009.

Welcome Back

Stampbord is one of those products that until you actually try it, you cannot see what all the fuss is about. How many of you have seen it in a magazine bought some and not opened the packet? Go on own up ;) I saw Glenda from Graphicus on television demonstrating some and really wanted to give it a go, but didn’t want to invest in a whole packet so never got round to trying it. My wonderful friend Glitter Monkey kindly sent me a few pieces to try and I’m hooked.

I bought a pack of domino sized pieces and some tools and made one piece and although I liked it, still didn’t really get over excited. A while back I did a class with Jane Collman and discovered how to use the tools and this helped me over my intimidation about stampboard and now I LOVE it!!!! I showed a book that I made using the stampboard for the covers and I spent a whole day making domino sized jewellery pieces back in May.

Here is the first necklace I made, I’ve double embossed the piece using clear UTEE for a more durable finish

Welcome Back

 

As regular viewers will know I am a member of the Book Arts Forum, one of the members there suggested a swap involving using a product you haven’t tried before. I want to make a book using stampboard for a cover. Here are a few pictures of the prototype book I made using Coptic stitching as the bind itself.
