50 Uses for Rubber Stamps – Part 8 (DIY Projects)

ideas for DIY projects Part 8 brings great ideas for DIY projects. Here are some more great ideas to help you narrow down what kind of stamp you need for your DIY projects.

42. DIY Embossed Velvet Clothing and Accessories

You will need a rubber stamp, an iron, and ironing board, a spray bottle with water, and the velvet item you wish to emboss. First, lay the stamp face up on your ironing board. Place the velvet on top of the stamp face down. Spritz the back of the velvet with water, then press the iron to the back of the velvet for approximately thirty seconds. Remove the iron and lift the velvet off the stamp. Place the velvet face up on the ironing board to cool. Let the pattern set until the fabric has returned to room temperature.

This DIY technique can be applied to clothing and accessories such as jackets, bags, purses, scarves, shirts, dresses, skirts, hats, earmuffs, gloves, and slippers. It can also be applied to household items such as throws, curtains, pillows, wall hangings, upholstery, jewelry, gift bags, and journal covers just to name a few.

Safety Disclaimer: It is easy to burn delicate fabrics such as velvet with a hot iron. Set your iron to recommended setting for velvet fabrics and immediately remove the iron from the velvet if you start to smell the fabric burning.

43. Reverse stamping with bleach

When you think of stamping, you probably think of using your rubber stamp to add ink to create an impression. But it is also possible to use your stamp to subtract ink to create an impression. All you need is paper towels, a recycled lid from a plastic container, bleach, and colored paper. Fold up a few paper towels and put them in the plastic lid. Apply bleach to the paper towels to create a DIY stamp pad. Use your rubber stamp to apply to bleach to the colored paper and be amazed as the bleach removes the colored ink embedded in the paper, created a reverse stamping affect.

Product disclaimer: Understand that your stamp was not designed to be used at high temperatures or with any stamping medium other than Trodant brand ink and paper. It is possible that your stamp may no longer work properly for its intended purpose after being used for any of the projects described above.

children arts and crafts

We’re back with part 7 of our 50 Uses for Rubber Stamps series! Part 7 brings great ideas for children. Here are some more great ideas to help you narrow down what kind of stamp you need for your children.

37. Sign artwork

Many children love arts and crafts. A custom rubber stamp is the perfect way for your child to easily sign their artwork and craft projects. You wouldn’t want them getting mixed up with someone else’s. Keep track of your child’s treasured memories.

38. Decorate children’s bedroom walls

Children love “decorating” walls. Why not let them do so in a constructive way? Use your custom rubber stamp to help them decorate their bedroom walls. It’s quick, easy, and mess free. No more finger paints, stained clothes, or frantic cleanup jobs. Channel all that energy and creativity and make memories that will last a lifetime!

39. Customize t-shirts

Our custom clothing stamps are perfect for decorating t-shirts, leggings, and any other clothing your child desires. Channel that creative energy into a project for the whole family to enjoy. Help them make presents for mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, brothers, and sisters. Decorate their own clothes for the first day of school! Who knows, maybe one day they’ll become a fashion designer!

40. Mark clothing

Children have a habit of leaving things in odd places. Use a clothing stamp to mark their clothing with their name, address, and phone number. Next time they leave a sweater at the mall or school it will be easy for a good samaritan to return the wayward clothing.

41. Temporary tattoos

Kids love decorating themselves almost as much as they love decorating walls and clothing. Temporary tattoos are a fun addition to any birthday party or sleepover. Use a custom hand stamp to give the kids fun temporary tattoos that will easily come off will a little soap and water. Rather than going out and buying expensive temporary tattoos that are complicated and messy to apply, just get a custom hand stamp that is mess free, safe, simple, and takes only an instant to apply. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Tips for Scrapbooking with Rubber Stamps

Scrapbooking Rubber Stamps

Are you a crafter looking to spice up the pages of your scrapbooks? Search no further than scrapbooking rubber stamps! There are many possible ways in which you can use these handy tools for your scrapbooking projects. Here are just a few of them:

  • To add personalized text to a page
  • To decorate a page with colorful logos that relate to the theme
  • To emphasize something specific on a page, such as a photo or a caption
  • To make the whole theme of a page stand out

This is just a short list of the options you’ll have when you incorporate scrapbooking rubber stamps into your project toolkit. Now that you’ve been introduced to the versatility of rubber stamps for scrapbooking, it’s time to discuss some best practices for using these stamps:

  • Scrapbooking paper can be expensive, so you want to avoid wasting it. Therefore, we recommend always testing out your stamps on a piece of scrap paper before using them in your scrapbooks. Doing so will allow you to get a feel for how much pressure you need to apply in order to get a crisp, even impression.
  • Another tip for using scrapbooking rubber stamps is to stand up while stamping, especially when using larger stamps. This position will allow you to easily gauge how much pressure you are applying to the stamp, which can be difficult to do when you are sitting down. In turn, there will be less of a chance that your stamp impression will end up looking uneven.
  • Getting the spacing right when adding stamps to your scrapbook pages can be tricky. To work around this, we suggest stamping onto a smaller piece of paper and then adding it to the page as an embellishment. Using this trick will ensure that a lopsided stamp impression doesn’t ruin your page and allow you to use up those smaller pieces of paper. Plus, you can use decorative edge scissors on your embellishments to make them look fancy.

When you follow these simple tips, scrapbooking with rubber stamps will be a breeze!

As you begin preparing for the season of family gatherings and gift giving, we’d like to tell you about the many ways in which special occasion rubber stamps can be used, some of which you probably haven’t thought of before:

  1. To create custom party invitations – Not only are handmade invitations more personal than store-bought ones, but they’re also a lot less expensive! Whether you choose to go simple or extravagant, your guests will surely appreciate the time and thought you put into creating their invitations.

The best thing about doing so is that you can customize a special occasion rubber stamp to suit your recipient by choosing a logo that fits their interests.
