Selective Stamping with Stamp of Approval

Share This!

FB Stamp of Approval 3 Just because your stamps come one way, doesn’t mean you have to use them that way!

With Selective Stamping, you can choose parts of your stamp to cover up when you ink.  When you stamp, only the part of the stamp you want stamped will be on your project!

The photo above are from a Facebook Live video I did last weekend.  Let’s take the same idea and step it up!  View the video to see how it was done!

Selective Stamping with Stamp of Approval

    I love how you put this entire card together!! The elements that you Selectively stamped are awesome and I need to remember to do this more often!
    I have to tell you that you remind me so much of my favorite Aunt. Aunt Bunny has the same sparkling personality that you do and as a child I always looked up to her. She was beautiful and always treated me as an equal not as some dumb starstruck little kid. I haven’t seen her in years but keep in touch with her through FB. Every time I see you I think of Aunt Bunny because you look so much alike! :-)
    Can’t wait for the next video and post!

    Giving your stamp of approval a try, just ordered it. I was going to wait as I did not want the Christmas one as not much of a Christmas girl. But since you still had the other one
    I ‘am giving it a try. Thanks Betty

    Hi CP ~ This is such a fun card and (like I said on the YT video) all of the different components work incredibly well together. That’s why I love your collections VS some of the others that seem to be just a hodge podge of items tossed together with no common thread. Thanks for sharing this awesome video and for reminding us about “selective stamping”. I already can’t wait until your next release because it’s already time for me to start making the zillion Christmas cards I need to send out to my ridiculously large family!! Have a spectacular week!! ~HUGS~

    Okay, I’ve had a disastrous thing happen. I’ve been using your geo-builders stamp set a lot (!) and somehow I’ve managed to lose the one that kind of looks like orange segments. I have looked EVERYWHERE, seriously I even went through all my trash. Is there any way I can just buy that stamp by itself without buying the whole set again? I understand completely if the answer is no. I just cannot figure out where it could be??? Thanks, am LOVING the Lovely Notes collection. Kirsty

    Catherine: I was thrilled that I ordered the SOA this time. I couldn’t believe that the box arrived the Friday, 2 days after it went on sale !!??!!?? You and your team are phenomenal. What fantastic products were found inside the very cool box. You truly went way out this time ;) Thanks so much for all you do, to make our experiences with stamping so much fun.

    This is my 5th set and love it,but noticed the title that is missing is the one I use very often. Cousin ! I make more of those than others. However still love the set. Can’t wait for Halloween and Thanksgiving set. Love Dianne

    I generally have no problem at all with cutting my stamps if I want to use just a portion of them. I really like the post-it idea though and will definitely try it. Love the card and thanks for all the great ideas!

    I love how you mix and match the contents of the gorgeous box. Your cards are amazing and you yourself are a true inspiration. My box hasn’t arrived yet, we have bad snail mail in South Australia, but I’m so excited about it and can’t wait to have the Lovely Notes Collection in my hands. Thank you so much Katherine from Barbara.
