Card Making With Rubber Stamps

Beware! Before you read further, I like to alert you to the fact that rubber stamping is addictive. Very addictive! You can be so addicted that you sit, eat and sleep, thinking and dreaming of rubber stamps and rubber stamping. And while others might be sleeping soundly, you will be up and about in your stamp-room stamping away happily late at night or even into the early hours of the morning.

Well, here is one example - me! Before I sleep, I browse through Rubber Stamping magazines like Somerset Studio or Simple Cardmaking, etc. In my sleep, I dream of stamping. Sometime (actually many times) I woke up in the middle of the night with great card making ideas and new techniques that I just have to try out there and then. When I go places, I look for stamp shops. I have thousand of rubber stamps - most of which have not touch any ink - but when I see another stamp, I still have to buy it.

So if you do not want to be an addict, stop reading now. won't know what you will miss...if you stop reading.

I have added the following pages to the website.

1. Cards Made With Rubber Stamps

2. 2 Simple Card Making Ideas For Your Botanical Rubber Stamps

3. A Selection Of Cards Made with Hero Arts Rubber Stamps

And coming soon: Making Cards with Japanese Rubber Stamps/Asian Style Rubber Stamping.

So welcome to the inner circle of rubber addicts! And Happy Stamping!

Card Making Forum?

I am comtemplating setting up a Card Making Forum for us to mingle and post to one another, hold contest, etc. It is quite an undertaking as I will have to spend time moderating the posts. In fact I have done all the groundworks and have found a place to host the forum at a reasonable fee. Since I will be spending time and money for hosting this forum, I like to make sure that it is something that is beneficial to all of you. So it would be very helpful if you email me your views and comments on this matter. Thank you.

Card Making Book/Magazine Review

Expression Magazine

Editorial Reviews:

From the Publisher

Expression celebrates the creative spirit through inspirational projects and ideas suited to both the novice and professional artist. Paper arts, jewelry-making, fabric arts, home decoration and more are offered to assist you in expressing your artistic talents.

From Flora

I'm puttng in a subscription for this magazine. Lots of cardcrafters are talking about it and so far I have been getting very positive feedbacks. Expression is a bi-monthly magazine ( 6 issues in 12 months) and for $5.83 an issue, it is relatively inexpensive. It covers paperarts like card making, altered books, collage arts, jewelry making, rubber stamping, etc .

I'm really looking forward to receiving my copy of this much spoken of magazine.

So here ends the third issue of the GreetingNews! ezine. The next one will reach your mailbox on the first week of April 2005. And hopefully, by then, we will be able to know whether we should go ahead with the Card Making Forum or not. Till then...

Happy Card Making To You! And Warmest Regards,

From your card making friend,

Flora Tan
