Treasury Tuesday: I (Heart) Rubber Stamps!

Sometimes Tuesday Treasuries consist of exclusively RNEST members, like they have been since December, but other times I create a treasury based on a particular RNESTer's item, using other items from all over Etsy. This week's treasury is inspired by an item by JackBear Stamps (top left-hand corner)...

I've always had a special place in my heart for rubber stamps. It is a love instilled in me by my mother (who owns gobs and gobs of them and used them for card-making). Rubber stamps are a great way to add a little personalization to anything. And it doesn't just have to be on paper! When you use Staz-On ink, you can even use rubber stamps on surfaces like fabric and tile.

For example, I made a drawstring bag and used a custom stamp I'd ordered from JackBear to stamp the design...

The great thing about these rubber stamps is that they are handmade items that can help you make your own handmade items! Happy stamping! :D
