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!
