Hey there fellow stampers! It’s Meredith, and I don’t know about you, but even though I consider myself a crafty person, I by no means fancy myself an illustrator. Drawing is definitely not my strong suit! But that is precisely one of the reasons I love Sweet Stamp Shop stamps so much! I can use their host of adorable stamps in my planner pages, cards, and other crafty endeavors, and they make me look good every time! But even though I can’t draw doesn’t mean that I can’t take my creativity one step further…let me show you how I use a little doodling to customize my images. Using just your Sweet Stamp Shop stamps, a black pen, and a few stragetically placed strokes, you can create personalized images that are totally unique to you!
Take, for example, the adorable girl from the Girl Power stamp set…using an ordinary black pen (I like to use a medium point Papermate Flair), I drew in a few lines to add detailing to her hair, doodled a heart on her dress, and sketched in a few stripes. And just like that, you can have a personalized stamped image that looks just like you! Or your daughter… Or your mom… Or your best friend… You get the idea. Color in the image with your favorite coloring tools, and you’ve got something that is over the top amazing!
The super girl stamp, also from the Girl Power stamp set, is another image that begs for your to add lots of your own personal touches! Adding stars to her skirt, detailing to her hair, and an M initial emblem to her crown allowed me to create an stamped image perfect to give a friend who is one of the most heroic super moms I know!
