Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

There is no question that McGraw knows her stuff, especially since she has stamped her imprint on one how-to book already, Making Greeting Cards with Rubber Stamps (1997). And there is no doubt that her latest techniques, from embossing powders to wax seals, elevate the craft from a kids' hobby to more of a decorative art. In this sequel, she has identified eight techniques that will further distinguish stamping creations, each with at least two step-by-step programs and three or so pages of ideas with lengthy descriptions. Clear vellum papers and ordinary household bleach are among the other materials that lend different looks and finishes; recipes are also included whenever needed. Yet one question still lingers. How many handmade cards can one person actually use? Barbara Jacobs

I have just started making craft projects and this book was a lifesaver. Besides offering very creative projects, this book provides all the basic techniques of stamping. The author earns my gratitude by showing each method in a step-by-step manner, with photos at every step. However, this book also will satisfy the more experienced stamper.
In the first chapter, the author gives a detailed list of helpful tools and materials, a small library of quirky images, and the basics of inking and cleaning stamps.
In the second chapter on embossing, the author first lists basic materials and tips. Then, she gives "receipes" and instructions for particular projects. Some are more complicated than others. Finally, the author gives an "endless possibility" section that provides instructions without the step-by-step photos. This is because these projects all build on the basic tecniques so it would be redundant to include them. My favorite project in this chapter is the Deco-Roman-looking flute player superimposed over sheet music.
The third chapter follows the format of the second chapter in how it is set up, but all the projects involve embedded stamps. This method is "a bit tricky" as the author says, because it involves heat, but looks impressive. It gives a 3-D effect to the stamped image.
The fourth chapter describes how to add vellum to your projects. This chapter also has basic techniques and tips upon which are built more, but do-able, projects. I like the use of tassles with the vellum.
Chapters five and eight describe embellishments and how to combine previously mentioned techniques. Chapter five focusses on beading and sealing wax.

Great pictures of elegant projects will give you lots of creative ideas. Very nice and quite artistic - nothing too "cute." Step by step instructions make it easy for anyone, though I think this book is most useful for advanced-beginners and up. A good book and worth the price.

As a seasoned rubber stamper I found this 2nd book by MaryJo's to be even BETTER then her first (Making Greeting Cards with Rubber Stamps) book! In this one she takes stamping a step further sharing her experience and techniques to show fast, easy and quick ways to create cards that LOOK LIKE they took a lot of time to make! Guaranteed to wow your stamping and non-stamping friends! Great job MaryJo!

Mary Jo McGraw's "how-to" project book offers many creative ideas and imaginative techniques for rubber stampers that both beginners and advanced "stampers" will enjoy! The step by step instructions and wonderful pictures make projects fun and easy.
