Testing the Stamp-a-ma-jig

Since the advent of clear stamps, trying to get exact positioning has largely become a thing of the past.  But many of us still have a lot of wooden mounted ones and trying to combine them is a bit of a hit and miss affair.  I recently discovered something which you have probably known about for years, there is a gadget to help – the Stamp-a-ma-jig! So I got hold of one and have been playing with it.  As an incentive I made a card for the “Less is More” challenge which this week is a Masculine card.




Materials Used:
Gordon . . . stamp (I have had this for years but cannot make out who makes it, the writing is faded)
A6 white card blank
Memento Tuxedo black ink pad
Stamp-a-ma-jig
Tombo black pen

I stamped Gordon onto a scrap of white card, trimmed it down and mounted it on some black card leaving a narrow border all around.  I then used the Tombo pen and the Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp a row of footballs along the bottom of the card.  I have left it monochrome to fit the criteria of the challenge, although I have done variations where I have coloured the image in.

Thanks for dropping in.  Take care.

I would like to enter this card into the “Less is More” Challenge – Masculine. 

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
