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
Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
