Color Me Monday with Jeanette Lynton

Simple Stamping Joys

"Many of you have heard the story about how I became a stamper—I knew right from the moment I held that first stamp in my hand that it was something I was going to do for the rest of my life. I loved the weight of the stamp, the ease of stamping, the amazing versatility, and of course the beautiful results.I think the thing I love most about stamping is that each one is a blank slate: just add color and it can become anything you dream!

Today, I’m featuring more artwork created by the awesome CTMH art studio that combine more fabulous new color combinations grounded in our new Summer palette with our great stamps. Clear stamps are the best for titles and journaling! Unlike stickers or chipboard letters, you never ever “run out” of a particular, well-used letter. And because My Acrylix are clear, it’s so easy to spell out even long words and keep each letter perfectly aligned.

Stamping doesn’t have to be detailed to be beautiful. You can select simple images from even the smallest stamp set. On the flip side, if you already own several stamp sets, feel emboldened to pull them out and mix and match images from totally different sets/looks/feels on the same piece. It’s amazing how unifying color is to pulling disparate stamp sets together. I absolutely love the challenge and fun of pulling out several stamp sets and mixing and matching elements to get a truly unique look.

With the other projects, I just love how the artists used color so boldly—for example, as a pop of color on an otherwise neutral card and unconventional colors (like a burst of Pear) together. It’s a day (like every day) that I’m so happy to be a stamper!"
