Fun With Fabric Stamp Pads

The other day I spent some more time playing with those Scribble Fabric Stamp Pads I used on my DIY clothing labels.  They are pretty versatile and they make a really easy project.


Today I'm going to show you two things I did with them.  

Scribbles also carries a ton of really cute foam stamps you can use with them.


I like press the stamp pad onto the stamp (instead of the reverse) so I can see what I'm doing.


I also recommend checking the stamp before you stamp it down to make sure you have enough ink on it.  Gently wipe the edges of the square so they don't mark up your project.


First, I created a personalized baby gift with them.  I stamped a burp cloth and a onesie...


...and then I wrapped it up for a super easy baby gift.


With the stamp pads you can also use any rubber stamps you have.  I have a thing for cute stamps and so I got out some of my own to use on a little library tote for the boys.  (I got both of these from Anthropologie a few years ago.)


And here's the bag front and back.


The stamping is kind of a nice, instant-gratification craft that anyone can do.  It's easier and faster than sewing or freezer paper stenciling.  Plus if you have (or make your own) stamps, you can use them over and over again.

Thanks for stopping in.


- Cutest painted pumpkins ever HERE.  I not familiar with the blog, but it looks really cool.

- We have taken off almost all the tile (both layers) from our shower and tub and even hauled it out.  There's been blood (sharp tile) and sweat, but luckily no tears.  There's still a lot to do, but we're making progress!

Have those ink pads made it to the stores yet? I really want to try them! Love the projects you posted. Have you seen how they hold up in washing? I feel like they'll fade after awhile...

I've been wondering about stamping lately, because it's hard to find cute knits here. like nessa, I just worry how it will hold up in the wash.

I like your blog and art work, but would never think its cute to put skulls on baby clothes?!

I didn't mean it to be offensive. To me, skulls mean pirates or rock and roll. They are all over baby and kid clothing these days and to me it isn't offensive. However, it obviously has a different meaning to you. Sorry!

Nessa - I found these ink pads at JoAnn. They are in the fabric paints section.

I think the skulls are adorable! How many times can you use a stamp pad? Can you refill the ink or do you need to buy new ones?

I love ALL skull baby items. As a mom of 2 boys, I just love to find things with skulls on them, but it always seems so expensive. This is a really cute way to make skull items for girls too, with just a change of ink color! Thanks for the idea!

The label I put on Baden's shirt has been washed a LOT of times and it still looks great. So far so good!
