Clear Art Stamps by Crafty Secrets & a Giveaway!

** This Giveaway is Now Closed **

I had a chance to experiment with some Crafty Secrets‘ Clear Art Stamps from the Heartwarming Vintage Collection and can’t wait to share some projects with you! Please read through to the bottom for details of the giveaway!

From the moment I saw these stamps, especially the "Bird Lovers" set (above), I knew exactly what I was going to make with them.  The stamps are so beautifully drawn with sensitive and detailed designs.  The sayings are perfect for cards or tags to attach to a gift.  I thought I’d try something a little different with these stamps though.  Visions of doll house miniatures were racing through my head, decorated with the sweet little bird stamps.  You see, I was recently at a flea market and bought an old doll house very cheaply.  Then, this past weekend, I came up on some old pieces of doll house furniture. The rooms were just waiting to be dressed! 

I first got out some unbleached cotton.  The clear stamps easily peeled off the plastic they are attached to in the packaging.  They also cling very easily to an acrylic block.  Using a black Staz-on ink pad, I inked the stamp and pressed the image onto the fabric.  Using a baby wipe, I cleaned off the remaining ink from the stamp.  In my haste to stamp the image, I realized I had forgotten to iron the fabric first, so that came next! 

The designs came out very clear and so I started to plan what I was going to make with my stamped images.  The bedroom window was crying for some hand stamped curtains!  I took the tiny little leaf stamp from the "Bird Lovers" set and stamped a random pattern all over a piece of the unbleached cotton.  The piece was cut to fit the window and divided in half to create two panels.  The top of each panel was turned down to create a casing and the edges were turned over and stitched.  I looked around for something to use as a curtain rod and came up empty handed.  So out came my eyelet setter and grommets (a.k.a. eyelets) were attached to the top.  A wire was fed through the eyelets and curled at the ends to hook over two very small nails at the top of the window.  I’m still thinking of making them into tie backs.  The leaf stamp made a pleasing pattern all throughout and I love the result.

The bedroom next needed some matching bed linens.  So using the branch stamp from the same collection, I stamped in the middle of a piece of the fabric cut to size.  The edges were then turned over and stitched.  (Underneath, there is also a little mattress made from 2 pieces of felt ‘quilted’ together on the machine, but it is not visible in the photos).  The pillow has the sweet little nest stamp right in the centre and this is turned inside out to stitch, then reversed, stuffed and top stitched all around.  Now, my miniature vintage dolls have somewhere to rest their head – and what better place than a nest!

For decorations, I stamped one of the birds and ‘framed’ it in a square piece of scrapbooking paper.  The bird was stamped in black ink then ‘painted’ lightly with a couple of other colours of ink pads.  I then used a white pen to add a few highlights to the details.  The edges of the paper were inked as well.  A perfect saying to display in a doll house bedroom is the one from the "Bird Lovers" set called, "Of course you can fly, for dreams have wings."  So that got stamped and matted for the wall as well.

For the kitchen chairs, I made two tiny circular cushions which were stamped with a "Bird Lovers" stamp too.  They were then tied to the back of the chairs with red and white baker’s twine.  For wallpaper, I glued some pretty scrapbooking paper on the top and bottom and put up a strip of another for a border. 

These stamps are such fun and I’m just getting started!  The "Little Chef – Small" collection has some sweet tiny  kitchen-themed images that would be perfect for making a stamped border along the doll house kitchen wall.  As well, I have plans for the "Today’s Special" stamp.  I plan on making a mini ‘chalkboard’ of sorts out of black cardstock and stamping that image on in white ink.  I can then use a white pen to handwrite on a menu.  This would be so cute on the wall.

Now for the giveaway!  We are giving away 2 sets of Crafty Secrets clear art stamps from the Heartwarming Vintage Collection,  "Seaside – Medium" and "A Sexy Little No. – Medium" to one ScrapScene reader.  (See photos below.) To be entered into a random drawing for the giveaway, please comment to this post.  We’d love to hear about your adventures in stamping.  What techniques have you tried and love?  What kind of things do you stamp?  What do you like about clear stamps?  We will leave this drawing open until Wednesday, July 9th at midnight EST.  One winner will be announced on Thursday, July 10th.

    I would so want to win one of these. I love crafty secrets. I love clear stamps because you can stamp again if your image doesn’t stamp right the first time and get it lined up exactly. I like to lots of things with clear stamps but I guess the most would be to emboss.

    Beautiful stamps! Clear stamps make positioning images so much easier, like if I’m covering a background with a collage of stamps, I can see which spot needs a little something more and i can place a tiny image right where it’s needed. I love to stamp on different texture medium like transparencies and fabric. I love embossing, and lately, uteeing over stamped images to make the colours and images pop.

    Acrylic stamps are my absolute fave because you can actually see where they will be going.
    A rechnique I have tried that I like is heat embossing the images and then using bleach on the inside of the image.

    I love what you have created with these stamps. I honestly have not had the pleasure of working with this brand before and I would so love too. That beach set is to die for with that little girl, the beach items and the phrases. It is so hard to find the perfect phrase to go with some stamps so this would be lovely to have and the texture on the number stamps looks amazing.
    I love stamps – I have a wood collectin and an acryllic collection and use them all. I love to stamp and emboss and use markers, crayons and watercolors.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win these lovely sets.

    Hi, your stamps are gorgeous! I love how you stamped on the fabric..I’ve never tried that. I’ve stamped or walls and scrapbooking related things. I may have to make some curtains for my kitchen and for the windows near my scrap space. You have so many unique stamps. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Wow – what an awesome giveaway. I’ve currently tried the brayering technique which is very challenging. I like to stamp lots of things – I’m trying out the onesies that have been on the blogs lately. I love clear stamps because they are easy to use, versatile, and easy to store.

  32. Posted 6 years, 4 months ago | Permalink

    The main reasons that I love clear stamps are for the ease of lining things up, and for minimal storage space. Right now my favorite techniques are resist types of techniques. One of my many favorites?…stamping with Adirondack Paint Dabbers, and inking over it with Distress Ink.
    I’d love to win those stamps. I actually don’t own either of those, and they are beautiful.

    I like the clears stamps because they make it so easy to position the images right where you want them and if needed, you can stamp over them again. I use my stamps mainly for scrapbooking and cards. But you have inspired me to try something different!

I am starting to really like the clear stamps. You can see through them and know exactly where you are stamping at. Plus you can add more then 1 stamp to the block prior to stamping. Thanks for a chance.

    I’ve tried almost every technique out there but love working with watercolor pencils after stamping an image. Shading is my favorite part. You can make an image “pop” with the right shading. I like stamping anything that doesn’t move! Clear stamps are the BEST as you can see exactly where you are placing them when you stamp and they are easy to store and clean. LOVE Crafty Secret stamps, please include me in on your drawing!

  41. Posted 6 years, 4 months ago | Permalink

    I’m enamoured with your darling projects! I’d never have thought to make accessories for a doll house like that! How charming and totally creative! I guess I love clear stamps for two reasons- make that three reasons:

    1) you can see where you are stamping
    2) they take up less space & no wasting wood for wood mounts.
    3) they are inexpensive

    What a fantastic idea to stamp on fabric and just love the dolls house :) Stamping is a tried and tested favourite of mine as there are so many different ways / products I can use to obtain different looks. Clear stamps have the edge over wooden ones for me as I like to be able to see exactly what I am doing!!!

    Oh wow those stamps are awesome! I already have some ideas in mind!.. My step kids are going to the beach in August and I want to make a mini album for each of them with the photos they take! And my little boy has a big birthday coming up – he is turning ONE!

    I just recently started using stamps…. I love to stamp with paint – I like the look! Clear stamps are soo much easier for me to use too… I am known to stamp things crooked, and upside down with regular stamps!!!

    I love clear stamps; just knowing where you are stamping is a timesaver. I also enjoy using embossing powder with the stamped image. I would say that my favorite is black embossing of the image with just a little watercolor after.

    Nice giveaway! Re. me and stamps: I love stamping with embossing powder and enjoy using bleach and stamps in various ways, love stamps and paint…and obviously all the various Ranger techniques involving stamps. What do I stamp on? pretty much anything that doesn’t move ;) Clear stamps obviously I like because you can see through them and that makes positioning a breeze. I like how easy they are to store (in clear plastic page books, in CD cases, in ziplock bags, etc. and to use, to clean…Also I think that the arrival of clear stamps brought stamping into the forefront again, and gave it some fresh juice. So it’s all good ;)

    I like two things about clear stamps: easy to store and easy to position. I love to do cards and I love using punches and distress techniques. Embellishments are the fun part too. I am getting better at coloring but still have not invested in Copics. I love the new Koh I Noor pencils and just wish they came in more colors. Love your doll house project.

    I Love Crafty Secrets and I adore clear stamps. I made a very unique way to store my stamps and it was posted at Serendipity Scrapbooks Forum for others to copy (http://www.serendipityscrapbooks.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=6941). It is a fairly long post but if you scroll down a good bit you will see the Photo Journal I made to show how I did it.
    I think that it is so awesome that you thought to use the stamps for your doll house! I have always loved anything miniature and using the stamps to make ‘fabric’ was a stroke of genius, for sure.

    wowowww !! i oh sooo loooove those stamps !! i want a set please !! pick me pick me !!!
    and why i love the clear stamps….soooo easy to store and you know what…. for me…i feel …it’s in the packaging…i know …call me crazy but… it feels soo good to have that flat set of stamps, and undo them, cling on a piece of acrylic, stamps, un-cling again and reput it back. anyway also a quick question… also i do stamp with Stazon and feel it gives such a clear image,… will it still be alright to stamp on fabric that…you will wash (curtains as per your project ??) since on a packaging it says… not recommended on fabric ?? i’d loove to know more :)

    Great new stamps! I am in love with the beach set especially. I love that clear stamps don’t take up as much room as wooden ones and that more and moe companies are coming out with them… keep them coming. I also love what you did with the doll house!

    I am pretty new to clear stamps and like everyone else I love being able to see through them to position the stamp exactly where I want them. Now just last week someone told me I couldn’t use stazon in on acrylics and I just read you blog and you used it on the curtains on the dollhouse (which I love)! I also use baby wipes to clean when I am stamping!

    What a great way to decorate the doll house! Beautiful set!! Love the giveaway ones as well! :0) I am still fairly new to stamping and get overwhelmed as to what to do with my stash The clear are soooo easy to place when stamping, though I still do like the wood kind. Someone mentioned the satisfaction of the cling and unclinging of the stamps in the posts and I concur! :0)

    I am new to stamping – I think the old red rubber wood blocked stamps really discouraged me. With the acrylics, I can see where the stamp is going! Life is good! I am a scrapbooker. I had no interest in making cards until I was asked to teach a card making class each month for my church group. Now, I try to make cards as often as I can! The stamps you are showing are lovely! I love the designs of the set with the ocean theme. I am always looking for new ideas and what you’ve done with the doll house is amazing! Thanks for offering a piece of blog candy!

    Love Crafty Secrets Stamps because of the detailed images and vintage style variety they offer. Clear stamps are so much easier to use than wood mounts because you can see where you are stamping and storage is a breeze! I love using distress techniques the most as I like that vintage look. I would be thrilled to win this give away.

    I am new to stamping so I tend to make toppers because if you mess them up you haven’t ruined your scrapbook page or card.
    Choosing to use clear stamps was a no brainer to me, and once I learned to always use a pad under my paper I am stamping on, I never had a problem with getting a clear image.

  97. Posted 6 years, 4 months ago | Permalink

    wow .. Love that doll house .. and who would have thought abt stamping on fabrics ..

    I love clear stamps because they are relatively inexpensive compared to red rubber stamps or wood mounted .. and of course storing them is super easy cause I just stick them into files.

    I use clear stamps also because they are easy to line up and reink if the image does not come up clear in the first stamp and also because there are sooo many designs and images out there. Techniques I used include Embossing, Painting with stamps and all sorts of other stuff … would love to own those stamps u are giving away cause I can’t get them where I am .. which is wayyyy out here in South East Asia …

    I love the diversity of all the stamps – fun to vintage. The technique I love to use the most is distressing – I just love the way it adds the right detail to my work. I love clear stamps cause your less likely to “mess up” your project – which I’ve done many times!!

    That is SO cute! I love to stamp and clear stamps are certainly my favorites! They are just so easy to use! One of my favorite techniques to use is to alter the shape of an acrylic stamp. It is so easy, yet so easy to forget about, too! LOL! Because of the flexibility you can curve a sentiment over your image or stretch a circle into an oblong! So many variations allow you to get the most out of each of your images!

    Wow, those are some awesome stamps. Clear stamps are just that “clear” it makes it so easy to work with and like the above poster, you can stretch and pull them anyway you want/need them to go and they just bounce back into shape(wish it worked that way with humans) lol one of my favorite techniques with them is the “stamp kissing” it is so easy that you forget about being able to do it most of the time, but it is also a very fun technique to show or teach. Thanks, Terry

    What a great giveaway. These are truly beautiful stamp sets. Like clear pieces of art.
    what I love most about clear stamps is the simplicity in positioning them. I do not have any special technique I love the most. In general, I can say that I love experimenting… Mostly I use stamps for preparing cards for my nephews and niece. I have relocated to another country in a different continent and this is my way of keeping in touch.

    Ever since back in the day before clear stamps, when I would put an entire scrap page together, finish it off with a stamp and then scream with regret at the placement or the smearing or the spots where the ink didn’t cover! YIKES!

    I really enjoy seeing the creative use of your stamps. I love stamps because you buy them once and you can use them for so many different projects whether it is a scrapbook project, jewelry making, home decor items etc. I love the clear ones because I can use them with my four year old son. It makes it easier when I try to explain to him about placement. I enjoy just looking at my collection from time to time and finding a new way to use them. I love to emboss my impressions often and create dimensional items on my layouts. They are one of the only products I use year after year.

    Thank you for considering me to win such beautiful stamps.

    I love doll houses. When we were little my mom showed us how to make doll houses from card board boxes. We would sit and play for hours designing. We would cut from magazines and use scraps of material for rugs,curtains and tabletop. Wooden spools for tables and lids from small bottles for lamps. No stamps back then. Now I’m stamping on a purse I bought that was plain and I just had to jazz it up. Clear stamps are awesome and I love using my Fiskar Stamp Press. So easy to line up every thing.

    I love masking with stamps, and stamping on vellum or painted chipboard. I’ve been trying stamping on acetate. I just bought my first Staz-on ink pad, and it seems pretty cool for stamping on nonporous materials. I stamp on everything-card, layouts, projects, etc. I like clear stamps because they just seem to have a lot more beautiful designs, and they are easier to use since you can see what you’re doing.

    The style of stamps I prefer are exactly what you’re making, vintage with a twist. I loved the clear stamps from day one. In fact, I unmounted my stamps years ago, because I didn’t like the block of wood getting in the way of my view so I’ve always had a desire to be up close and personal with my stamp whether its acrylic or rubber.
    I started this hobby in 1984 and thought for sure I would tire of it like all my other things. But its gone from a hobby to a love affair. Thanks for making it so easy to love stamping!

    Wow, what a fantastic giveaway!! Those stamps are beautiful, and so is the project with the doll house. ♥

    I love clearstamps because of their freshness, the super easy stamping with a see-through acrylic block, easy storage. I know they are supposed to be cheap, but here in Scandinavia they are not…but I love to send clearstamps to my friends as RAKs, as the shipping is cheap ;)

    My favourite techniques are using alcoholbased markers together with embossing, and/or ordinary waterbased ink.

    I stamp on many different items – besides cards and bookmarks, I stamp on t-shirts, baby clothing, altered boxes et.c.

    Thanks for all the great inspiration!

She said we can all come over to her house and stamp with all of her “Crafty Secrets” stamps.WOW!!

    I love making miniatures & love rubberstamping….I never thought of combining the 2. I do like to rubberstamp my own scrapbook paper, I rubber stamp altered wood & foam core items, & I rubber stamps cards etc, but I will have to try doing wall paper or bedspread for a miniature room I’m working on. Clear stamps make linging up repeats on projects so much easier.

    I like to make my own charms by stamping into clay and cutting out with very small shape cutters. The Seaside stamps would be priceless, as I live in Florida, one mile from the beach. Keeping my fingers crossed, I thank you for your generosity.
    (by the way, my husband is also into miniatures, and is building a nascar garage–havent found any stamps that he could use in his project however).

    I love acrylic stamps cos u can see where ur stamping on and using staz on ink makes them really versatile cos u can stamp on just about every surface!! (as u’ve shown here) I love stamping on transparencies n creating my own little Hamblies!!

    Wow! Those stamps are so pretty! I’ve been so intimidated with stamping eversince, so I am still trying to incorporate it with scrapbooking and card-making. I would love to learn MORE and of course, add MORE to my meager collection :D Thanks for this sweet give-away!

    I have one set of these gorgeous stamps that I purchased last year. I must say they are excellent stamps. The beauty of clear stamps has to be that you can see where the stamp is going to be stamped onto your project – gotta luv that!!!!!
    I would willingly welcome another set of Craft Secret Stamps to by home – they would fit right in!!!!!

    Luv Sandie

    WOW!!! What an awesome giveaway, those stamps look awesome! I am an avid stamper and love to incorporate images into my scrapbooking. Embossing, chalking, and watercoloring are three things I do A LOT with my stamps – aaaahhh, too many stamps and too little time, lol!!! I don’t use acrylic stamps that often but I do like that you can see where you are stamping. Thanks for the chance! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

    These stamps are fab. I especially love those gorgeous numbers!!

  214. Posted 6 years, 4 months ago | Permalink

    I am in love with these stamps and would jump up and down for joy if I won. I am mainly a stamper for cards and scrapbooking. I love the use of clear stamps as you can line them up exactly where you want them and also can do over again if you don’t have enough ink. I love embossing and using watercolours or sakura pens to fill in my stamped images. I love cutting my images out when putting them on a layout. I have tried several techniques when using them on cards and think the crayon resist technique is one of my favorites.

    I am still a beginner at stamping. I usually use stamps on cards, though one of my goals is to learn to use them more! I love clear stamps because I can cpmbine them on my block and see exactly where I’m stamping.

    Love my clear stamps. You can add something to your scrapbook page and not worry about hitting the right spot. Since you can see exactly where the ink is going, a last minute addition is always do-able without ruining all the other work you have done. Thanks for the give away!

    I like your dollhouse crafts! My favorite part of stamping is the creativity it allows. Years ago, when our daughter was small, my husband made a gorgeous dollhouse for her. I had so much fun making little accessories to go inside. We still have it stored away safely for a family member in the next generation. If I had room to display it in our house right now I would decorate it for each season.

    I am a total stampaholic. I have been a collector for 25 years. I have unmounted all of my wood mount stamps, so now my collection is clear acrylic stamps and unmounted rubber. They take up so much less room that way! My favorite set from Crafty Secrets is the “little chef” set. I love making little cook boos, I just have to get this set soon!

  223. Posted 6 years, 4 months ago | Permalink

    I just love those clear stamps…..i had the hardest time working with the foam and the wood mounted stamps! I couldn’t see where i was stamping! now stampings like butta!
    Thanx for the giveaway!

    Your dollhouse is so cute! I got a dollhouse when I was in 6th grade and all I did was spend time decorating it — never did get any dolls! Decorating it was much more fun. And, to answer your question, some of the things I like about clear stamps are how easy they are to store — I keep all mine in binders, the ability to see where I’m stamping, and that I can easily stamp around curved surfaces with the stamp (I made Xmas ornaments last year).

  228. Posted 6 years, 4 months ago | Permalink

    Clear stamps are the best for placement… I especially love the Crafty Secrets stamps for a lot of the reasons you mentioned. My favorite thing to do with stamps lately is embossing and resist-techniques. There’s always something new to experiment with.
