Using stamps to match a collection's leftovers

Hello everybody!

Have you ever kept scraps from a collection that you loved, but without using it because you had not enough left? Or have you ever sighed after your unused stamps and inks, without ideas about how to use it on your projects?
Then, these ideas are for you!

I love to match stamps with leftovers, because it helps me to stretch a collection's scraps (I usually only buy a few sheets from a collection) AND it makes me to finally use my inks and stamps...  I should do it more often!

I usually start with a multicolored pattern from the collection, and I look for inks with this color palette. Then, I look for stamps that match well (here, flowers and leaves were a good option)

The easiest way is to use a small stamp several times on a strip, like I did with the dark blue flower on the card below. (I also used watercolor pencils to color it).




  1. Solange, you are amazing. You have the most wonderful ideas for using up scraps and being creative at the same time. Love all of the above.

  2. This post is great! It really helps me to see what I can do with all those stamps!

  3. Darling projects, Solange, love the idea of making your own stamped papers!

  4. Beautiful layout, and a great idea!!!
