stamp a little joy

Last week I was mak­ing some greet­ing cards and thought they would look nice with some stamped let­ters. I don’t own any let­ter stamps, but I thought I could make just the let­ters I need­ed with my col­lec­tion of corks and a glue gun.

 

The stamps them­selves looked bet­ter than the imprints they made. It was just dif­fi­cult to get an even sur­face. Writ­ing with hot glue was hard­er than I thought! And the let­ters turned out rather squig­gly. It was alright, but not quite what I had in mind…

 

Then I remem­bered that Mike has a col­lec­tion of met­al types. To stamp the­se, I made a makeshift ink pad with a wad of paper tow­el and some acrylic paint.

 

But are there enough let­ters to make up a greet­ing phrase? Or even just a greet­ing word? It’s time to put my Scrab­ble skills into good use.

 

elm…
loft…
globe…
norm…

Ok, greet­ing words…

Aha.

 

The lit­tle joys in life, are stamp­ing let­ters and socks with cher­ries on them.

 

Have a hap­py Wednes­day!
