I had the priviledge to meet the author at Stampfest in Orlando this summer when I took her watercolor class using rubber stamps. Kathie is a wonderful teacher so I was excited to buy her book when it was finally published. I can honestly say it has surpassed my expectations!! I have been addicted to card making and rubber stamping for just over 2 years now so I've read many books and magaiznes on papercrafts and this is by far one of the best books I've come across! The book is full of beautiful projects and full of color photographs with step-by-step instructions that a beginner can easily follow but the book also has projects that will appeal to more experienced stampers as well. This is a great book for both learning and will provide inspiration as well. I'm giving it as a gift to my rubber-stamping friends this holiday season. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in rubber stamping!!
The bulk of the projects are cards that encompass a variety of stamping techniques, some of which are quite unique. There are simple and more complicated projects, including "holiday favor cube", "flip-flop box" and "heart folio." Ms, Seaverns does a fantastic job of explaining the procedures for each project. She shows you how to use some of the most common tools in stamping. The pictures are clear and make completing the design easy.I've read many card-making and rubber stamping books and skipped quite a few but this is a nice addition to my personal collection. I'd recommend this book for both beginners and seasoned stampers.
I recently ordered this book and was very pleased with the content. Enjoyed the initial section of the book, although I probably knew most of it. Still, it is a great general refresher about rubber stamping. I appreciated the clear, concise directions and photos of the various card projects. Recommend this book to beginners and intermediate stampers alike.
I am relly into rubber stamping and this book has wonderful ideas for me. It is very detailed and organized. I have enjoyed first reading it and then putting the ideas into practice.
I am very happy with this book. It has beautiful card making ideas with complete instructions for their completion. It also has instructions for making a variety of gifts that use rubber stamps. I think the book is best for the card maker who likes to collect rubber stamps because every card requires at least one stamp. The book is a pleasure to look at with its colorful photos. I wish I had time to make every card in it. I recommend the book highly!
The book was perfect, the price was unbelievably low and the book arrived within the time frame or before that was promised!The book presented some instructions for making greeting cards that I had never seen before. I love it!
