Tim Holtz - Cling Mount Rubber Stamp- Mini Cirque Alphabet
Article Courtesy Scrapjazz.com: by Patter Cross
This rubber stamp set is mounted on cling mount so you have the beautiful quality of rubber but the convenience of a clear stamp. These stamps attach easily to any acrylic block. This set includes 29 stamps—26 alphabet stamps and 3 decorative images. They also come on a 3-hole-punched storage sheet so storage is a snap!
When I first saw these stamps, I was not sure about the size until I used them. They are perfect for layouts of all sizes and for cards. The alpha stamps measure approximately 1 ½” high by ¾” wide. I also thought they might be a little too fancy but after using them, I find I can use them on anything. The possibilities with this set truly are endless!
One thing I love about this set is that it comes ready to store “as is.” People always struggle with stamp storage but this set truly is ready to just be put in a binder for storage. The storage sheet also has the images printed on one side of the sheet so you always know what the stamped image will look like.
Now the only downfall to this amazing set is that it does not have lowercase letters. All of the stamps are uppercase letters. I think a set with lowercase letters would be amazing to use with this set. Other than that, I really love everything else about this stamp set.
Tips & Techniques:
- Use with stamp inks of all kinds or acrylic paints.
- Use the letters with VersaMark to make an ABC background.
- Create scrapbook titles using banners, separate journaling squares, etc.
- Create sentiments for cards.
- Create decorative backgrounds using the decorative images in the set.
Project Ideas & Examples:
These stamps truly can be used for scrapbook pages of all sizes and for cards of all kinds:
- 6” x 6” layout, “First” -- use a single piece of patterned paper to create your title.
- card, “Noel” -- use VersaMark to create a background with the decorative images, and use different strips of patterned paper to create the sentiment.
