I am new to Rubber Stamping and have bought a few books - this one was by far the best for me as a beginner! It clearly lays out many techniques, gives tips and hints and shows some nice project ideas. The techniques are laid out for each project, but they are easily adapted to whatever project of your own you want to do based on that technique. Not only paper projects, there are many others as well.
This is an excellent book for beginners. There is a wealth of information especially for the novice. It details the difference in many kinds of materials, including what inks to use on what projects. For somebody who is just learning to rubber stamp, this book will lead them through carefully, slowly, and with precision.
Wow! What a great book. It takes the novice (me!) and teaches you how to make projects that look professional, even if you're all thumbs (me, again.) I'd never rubber-stamped before, but can't wait to do it again, since my first project turned out so well, thanks to Ms. Scheffler. I especially appreciated the clear directions so even I couldn't screw up.
I just started rubber stamping and I bought four stamping books for ideas. This was my favorite of the lot. It included several techniques I hadn't heard of before but that were easy for me, as a beginner, to recreate. The photography is beautiful and the instructions are easy to understand.
