A picture's worth a thousand words--but a picture on a page colorfully decorated by the latest in rubber stamps is worth a million! Stamps make it so easy to add frames, imaginative details, and clever motifs. They'll turn a plain piece of paper into a personalized calendar or transform thin slats of balsa into attractive "wooden postcards." Have lots of pictures to frame? Make it a triple play with a triple window-frame card. One suggestion: place your pictures inside three portholes, and then continue the ocean theme with stamped fish and sponged-on "water." You'll cherish these brilliant ideas and use them again and again!

Review:

Known for her vibrant use of color and her bubbly enthusiasm, rubber stamp authority Dee Gruenig brings her unmistakable style to another eye-catching volume. This time the emphasis is on stationery items and other paper goods: cards, envelopes, address labels, gift-wrap and packaging, journal covers, calendars, and bookmarks, although she has included a number of other items such as aprons, ornaments, a necklace, and mouse pads. Rather than simply inking stamps with a single color off an ink pad, Gruenig loves to play, combining multiple colors with markers, brayers, and sponges, and often creating backgrounds as eye-popping as the images themselves. Many of her projects incorporate the photo frame idea, utilizing an open or border design inside of which can be placed a photo, a written greeting, or even clear cellophane to make a little gift package. Subtler crafters may be put off by her Technicolor palette, but her vivid imagination and excellent directions should have wide appeal. --Amy Handy
