Playing with peg stamps

One of the most popular stalls at the Make It show last month was the Card-io one - hardly surprising as there were dozens of beautiful samples made using their peg stamps, and some lovely demonstrations to watch.

They reminded me that I have several sets of the stamps, from back in the day when the pegs were made of wood and the brand was called Rubberstamp Tapestry. So I fished some of them out for a play, selecting just leaf stamps from a combination of sets.


I very faintly pencilled in a curved line across the lower part of the card  then filled in the area below the line with leaves stamped using different areas of a Kaleidacolor Fresh Greens pad. Then I erased the pencil mark and stamped a simple sentiment.

I am sharing this with

  5. Delightful make and colours and how nice to see some peg stamps deployed too, I have three sets that I just treat like a roundabout in the drawer myself!

  7. Lovely card Jane and perfect for the challenge! Like you, I have some Tapestry peg stamps - not being very imaginative I usually just stamp them into a wreath shape - love this idea!

  8. Gorgeous card, I have a couple of packs of the rubber tapestry pegs too and they have never been out of the packages. You have given me inspiration to get them out. I know there are a lot of tutorials/videos how to use them too.
