I don't stamp...

...but it doesn't look like it, does it?

I really don't consider myself a stamper, just a stamp owner. 

I did break out the alphabet stamps for years there though - I think that counts for something. 

I've got a heat gun.

I've dabbled in backgrounds. 

I've sprinkled embossing powders.

I've added sentiments on cards.

Okay, so I do stamp, just not to a great degree.

It doesn't mean I don't want to though. 

I really like stamped backgrounds and sentiments.

I don't like all the blending/alcohol inks/distress inks and messy stuff. I'm not into messy, it's just not me.

In the meantime, I just enjoy looking at them around my room. They make me feel happy, even if I don't use them. 

How's that for funny?


  1. Hi Debra, hope you guys are well?

    LOL about the "not" being a stamper but owning a "few" stamps. I know where you are coming from. I really don't consider myself a "stamper" but at least I use my stamps!! I own way more than I use and I don't want to do the "messy" stuff either, using inkpads is way messy enough for me :-)

    Have a great day, and promise I will definitely pop into PC soooooooonnnnnnnnnnn!

  2. Hi Liz,

    Yes, doing well. Trying to keep the dog cool! Hope you're doing well too.

    Oh, sounds like you use yours more than me. I have intentions, I have real intentions to use mine. I know, the ink pads and clean up are enough for me too! Gosh, even the clean up is too much sometimes. What I've discovered for me is that I like getting the same result every time - ie. punch that punch and you'll get the same butterfly each time. With all the distressy stuff, it's hard to get the same result. I don't know, it's just me, so I go with it.

    Thanks for your comment - sure, would love to see you there!

    Bye now :o)

  3. Hi Debra. I have just stumbled upon ur blog after finding it on a friend's blog. I have ALL your punch art books and LOVE them to bits. Because of you I own (too many) punches...if there is such a thing...right???? I have done some stamping and sadly my punching has taken a bit of a pause. I do have LOTS of stamps and inks too now...but still will always have MORE punches...LOL. So glad to have found you.

  4. Hi Lynda,

    Nice to meet you! Thanks for your lovely comments about my books. So glad you enjoy them. It's always fun to meet someone who loves punch art like I do! Oh, you're funny. Lots of stamps and punches - sounds like a good thing to me! Have fun and see you on the blog soon. Thanks for taking the time to say hi.
    Bye now,
    Debra :o)
