Wednesday Stamper Challenge


The cover of this little book is stamped on Stambord with StazOn; Adirondack inks used for edges, sealed with Top Boss clear EP. I'd always been apprehensive about trying star books, but after taking a great class and using this very EASY-to-follow tutorial, I've made several, in different sizes.


They can be made in any size, and in larger sizes, you can add pockets and other interactive bits for treasures and surprises.








I really enjoy the versatility of Stampbord, and how easy it is to have white areas, just by scratching off the colour!


This little book is so tiny that it can hang on a Christmas tree.
Other cards and things can be seen here. Thanks so much for stopping by.
