Introducing All About Stamping!

I know many have been awaiting my new video tutorial series, and today’s the day! I’m going to post videos for the next several (like 6 or 7!) weeks on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and here’s the first one in the series. This is the introductory video about my favorite tools for stamping and what is best for starting out. Although I know many of my bloggy friends are avid stampers, I’m hoping you can pick up a tip or trick or two in this video. And trust me, there’s more to come. The series will be set up so that the first two videos are mostly information, and the next ones (like, a lot of them!) focus on one stamp company per video. That way, you can get a sense of what each company is about and how I like to use their products. Maybe you’ll even learn about a new stamping company or two! So buckle your seatbelts, because we’re going to start it all…. right now. :)

Being that I’m leaving for Florida in about 12 hours, I should probably go start packing. Yes, I said start. Oy! I also have some secret video making to do tonight before I leave. That way I’ll have lots of fun footage to edit while relaxing by the pool. :) Don’t worry, I’ll still be posting a bit while on vacation. You know I couldn’t deprive you of videos while I’m gone. See you on vacation!

    Yay! Love this idea for a video series.

  2. Great job Britta! I missed seeing Trixie’s butt though. I keep watching that one video to see cute Trixie! LOL! Have a great vacation. I’ve been reading your blog for the past month or so and really enjoy it.

    ‘posting while on vacation’..! We appreciate it but vacation is for time off.. not time on! Tks for the video series I am not new to stamping, but I can see where it is valuable info for newcomers. Of course I did learn something… I have heard the term polymer and didn’t know clear stamps and polymer were the same. Tks again… appreciate your time and sharing your creativity!

  4. If this series is anything like your distress ink series, it’s going to be awesome. Have fun on your vacation!

  5. I’m looking forward to the new series! Have fun on vaca! Gets lots of rest and relax-use that new camera of yours too!

    Gonna love your new series… Enjoy Florida!

  7. Can’t wait for this series Brit! I’m pretty much a stamp-a-holic but I love that it’s still possible to discover new tips and tricks, and also stumble on new-to-me stamp companies ;)
    I have been poring over your DI series so much, so I’m sure this one will be just as good!
    Have a great trip to FL – looking forward to catching up with you soon,
    Hugs, Ruth S

    Ms. Britta, you light up my day! Your enthusiasm and creativity brings me much joy! Thank you for being you….just perfect.

  9. Love this. Great idea. Wish this was around when I was starting out.

  10. I love this idea for a video series — I wish I’d found it when I was starting out, it would have clarified a lot of things for me. I definitely plan to watch the rest of the series.

    One thing I noticed was that you make no distinction in this video and pdf between clear photopolymer and clear acrylic stamps; you use the terms interchangeably. I think one of the most helpful things I’ve learned that I wish I’d known earlier is that these are two very distinct types of stamps: they’re both clear, sure, but they act really differently. I used to prefer acrylic stamps because they were cheaper, but when I finally got some photopolymer stamps I realized I’d made a big mistake. Everything I’d disliked about the acrylic stamps — not always sticking to the blocks or taking ink well — wasn’t a problem with photopolymer stamps. I wish we’d stop talking about them as if they were the same — they’re far more different than, say, a wood-mount vs. a cling-mount rubber stamp, which are at least both cushioned rubber.

    • I’m so glad you like the series! You’re right, I don’t make a solid distinction between photopolymer and acrylic stamps because, to be honest, photopolymer stamps can be made of all sorts of materials – there are many manufacturers of these. It’s a relatively common-held notion that Made in the USA stamps are of higher quality, and almost every stamp company I buy from produces high-quality photopolymer stamps. Since this video was made a while ago, my understanding of the whole difference between the two and the exact terminology I use when talking about the subject has since greatly improved. You live and you learn!

      Also, I wanted to note that I kind of avoid using the lesser-quality stamps on camera because I don’t believe in their product quality. It’s a little bit like opening up a can of worms. Many companies I enjoy and love DO have stamps that are of a lesser quality, but I just don’t buy them instead of pointing them out on my blog. I don’t want to make people upset or think that I have a fundamental problem with that brand. I’m letting my dollars do the talking in this case. Thanks for your comment I hope you stick around a view my more current videos as well!
