I can see that they were done a couple of years ago, but not seen anything quite like it before - they were certainly inspiring.

Very pretty, I have got the SU Stamp-a-ma-jig in my wishlist, I might have to order that next and have a go. I didn't think it was a priority but I keep on finding more ideas that I could use it with! :wink:

Thank you, will have to have a better look later. x

I use lego bricks 'square' and some acetate. Works quite well

I had a lego L for years to line up my stamping but bought a stamp-a-ma-jig before I stopped selling Stampin up. The lego L is fine but it does slip if you are not careful. The stamp-a-ma-jig is great as there is no slip so it is perfect every time. If you can afford it, I would recommend you buying it. I would also say try it first as my friend can't get on with it.

Forgot to say the videos are great. Might have a go. I've got some See D's that have little flowery sprigs, flower pots and other gardening bits. I have been thinking of what I can do for my mum for her birthday.

Melis, as I try to do more stamping, I come across more examples of when I NEED the Stamp-a-ma-jig! :wink: :wink: for eg. I have the Clockworks set and need to match up the clock face. :-?

It is great. Especially for the 2 step stamping sets. I've also got a couple of stamps that are not stuck onto the wood straight so it is handy for them. No one wants a wonky 'happy birthday' card!! :lol:

Have just had a go with my stamps and SU inks on watercolour paper and it has turned out really nice. I also used some water colour pencils to add a bit more detail to the grass as I haven't got a grass stamp. Very happy with the experiment piece. Now I might sit and make a little card. Will post a picture if it turns out.

Loved watching these clips, makes me want to have a go. Does anyone know if you can just ust ink pads instead of the pens they use? Also, which pens do they use?

the pens are the marvy ones I think, I am sure that any water soluble ink would do, must have a go myself. I think the key is the watercolor paper.
