Today I’m sharing a page featuring some stamping on photos!

Lately, I’ve been absolutely obsessed with stamping on photos. I think it adds such a nice touch to photos and it also makes it look like you tried a lot harder than you did. Which is always good.

You’ll need an ink that doesn’t smear on photos. This may vary depending on what kind of ink + photo paper combo you use. I use Canon photo paper and Staz On ink. No smears. This may take some trial and error if you’re mixing other supplies, so just be patient.

It’s also a quick way to add some embellishing without having to actually embellish. We’re all about shortcuts here, and stamping on photos does the trick. I’ve been using Kellie’s Outline It alphabet like a madman. It’s seriously made it’s way onto most of my pages since I’ve gotten it. It’s that good.
Stamping on photos can be kind of tricky at first. Make sure you’re inked up really well and when you make your impression, make sure you don’t move your stamp once you’re on there. You’ll definitely smear that way. So make sure you commit!

 

And then there’s some regular stamping. I’m really loving stamping on labels, as well. It just adds a nice touch.

So yeah – thanks for checking out my post. Make sure to check out the rest of the blog hop and get some great NSD inspiration and a chance at some fantastic stamps. My challenge for you is to implement one of the techniques in the blog hop! Have fun!

  1. I like your stamping on the photos with the date. I have added text to my photos before printing, but have never stamped on them. I love your always PL card.

  2. I haven't been able to bring myself to stamp directly on photos yet but I love the look and really need to just jump in and try it.
