Using clear, consise directions, nationally known Rubber Stamp artist MaryJo McGraw shares her techniques on how to mask, embellish, emboss, water stain and more to create one-of-a kind greetings from elegant to festive to whimsical! What's even better is that most of the techniques can be done in a matter of minutes! I LOVED THIS BOOK!! Thanks MaryJo!
I was thrilled with this book. I am a novice at rubber stamping and I wanted to make my own Christmas cards this year, so I bought Ms. McGraw's book hoping it would be what I needed. It is perfect for the beginner (and probably those who know some about stamping but want more ideas and information). The book is laid out in a format that is easy to follow and not overwhelming or confusing. It is written with specifics in mind. It offers plenty of options giving you room to stamp as fancy or as simple as you like. I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves stamps!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book because of all the wonderfully creative designs and easy-to-follow instructions so I could recreate the same beautiful cards myself. I am just a beginner and found the information on different stamping tools and how to use them very helpful. Mary Jo has an incredible attention to detail and covers all the bases from which a beginner or expert could benefit. Her samples range from the cute and simple to the more artistic and creative. I especially enjoyed the fact that she listed where to buy the stamps she used so I was able to purchase them myself. Rubber stamping has never been so much fun! Thank you Mary Jo! Can't wait for your next book!
This book contains many color samples highlighting various techniques. I've been stamping for a year and was able to put to use several new ideas from this single book. I recently purchased six stamping books and this one was by far the best.
I have found many wonderful ideas and inspirations in MaryJo McGraw's book. This book is useful and informative for a new stamper and will give the most experienced stamper many inspirations and some "I could had a V8" head smackers! MaryJo gives full details for all of her cards, including the materials and stamps that she used. I found that her instructions were quite clear and informative. I spent many an enjoyable hour working with the ideas that MaryJo presented. This is on the Christmas list of every stamper on Compuserve!!
I've learned alot from this book. This was the first book I bought when I got into rubber stamping. I truly recommend this to anyone who really enjoys rubber stamping. The book comes with me when ever I travel. I bring it out alot when holidays and b-days come along for some ideas I can combine with a card to make.
I'm new to stamping and am quite impressed with this book, as it provides enough information for beginners like myself to really understand how to do the techniques, and has also helped familiarize me with the stamping terminology.My only criticism is that someone obviously goofed in putting the book together, as the first pages of the "Getting Started" and "Special Effects" chapters are reversed. I almost put the book back on the shelf at the store when I saw that, figuring the rest of the book would have problems like that as well. Fortunately, it's the only problem I've encountered... it's just a little disconcerting!
