1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Pink rubber for stamps: is it better and where do I buy it? on: December 19, 2013 07:31:08 PM
Hi everyone!
I'm a bit new to printmaking, but totally in love with it!

Last week, I made a kick-ass holiday stamp that I used to make dozens of cards. A few days later, I wanted to stamp some more, but for some reason the transfer was not happening as well as the first time. I uses a white rubber stamp that I got at my local craft store (http://www.deserres.ca/en-ca/search/lino-speedy-cut-plate/SPLSP/). It's the only stamping material I've seen around locally, but I've seen many people on crafster use pink rubber. This leads me to a couple of questions:

- Do stamps "wear out" after several uses?
- Is pink rubber better than white rubber? (obviously, I know the colour is not significant, it's just the only way I have to describe them. The pink rubber, from what I've seen on pictures, looks tougher and less smooth than what I have... so more precision and longer lasting???)
- Where can I buy pink rubber online?
- Are there any special "care" techniques for rubber stamps that I'm not aware of? (ex: wash is cold/warm water?)

Thanks in advance!

This is great!  I really like the dual passport holder.  Cheesy

I've seen quite a few travel wallets around crafster, but they all only hold one passport. Since I've only ever traveled with my parents or my boyfriend, we tend to keep all the passports together for safety/easy access. Dual passport pocket was the starting point for this contraption Wink

That looks great! I love the fabric you used.  I made a travel wallet for when my husband and I went to Korea and it was super helpful, so hopefully yours will be too!

Thanks! I'm so in love with the fabric combo that I can't wait to make more things, like a normal wallet, out of it  Cheesy

This summer I'm going to Europe with my boyfriend and I need something to hold both our passports and some other things... I also happened to have some new fabric lying around, waiting to be used... so the travel wallet for two was born!


Outside


Back with a small zipper pocket for quick access to bills or coins


Inside with a compartment for two passports, a slip pocket for tickets or maps, five card slots a pen grip and a small pocket for band-aids and the like.

I can't wait to use it! So excited!

Thanks for looking. C&C are welcome!

I like the length - looks nice and cozy!

Picked up a men's sweater at a thrift store for 10$ (I see people here who mention getting nice clothing items for 2-3$! Where do you find such thrift stores? =O )

I'm a bit of a thrift addict... My thrifting tips: avoid the big chains (Sally Ann or Value Village), unless they are having 50% off sales.  Try to find smaller church run thrift stores.  These often have daily specials that include 50% off certain colour price tags.  Where I live the MCC (Mennonite Central Committee) and Bibles for Missions are two of the larger church-run chains.  Other smaller stores, like those supporting local hospitals/hospices can be good too.  Also, suburbs have better pricing and selection than in the city.  Many of stores you cannot find on the internet, so you kinda have to develop an eye for spotting thrift stores while drivng/on the bus!  Finally, we're in garage saleing season!  Recently I've found garage saleing clothing to be pretty inexpensive.  Check out craigslist!   

whew, that ended up being long.  But hope it helps!

Thanks! It does =)
Gotta explore more and bike around all those garage sales!

Amazing! I see why you loved the design; so simple and yet so fabulous!
That's the great part about crafting isn't it? Can't afford to buy it, but can definitely afford to make it Wink

Monday night I got a pretty little package in the mail (with stars all over it!  Shocked)
And this is what I discovered inside:


A lovely pot-holder with an embroidered fairy that matches the fabric.


And the apron itself! Don't you just love the fabric?
It's got extra long ties, so I get to make a bow in front and still have long ends Tongue

Thank you so much Dfabric! This is some awesome crafting  Kiss

Nice! It looks much better than a 'vest' though.

I realize it's actually more of a tunic, isn't it? My mind does weird things sometimes and throws random vocabulary words at me, assuring me that it is the right word to use =P

No, vest is probably right, it just doesn't really conjure up thoughts of something this nice for me - I think 'Grandad' when I read/hear 'vest' and yours is most certainly not a 'Grandad' vest.

Hahaha, nope! Although it might have been a "Grandad" sweater =P
I think for me a tunic is like a short dress/long shirt and a vest is more something you would button, like this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=387715.msg4587683#msg4587683 (although I called it waistcoat there hehe... words! what they do to us!)

Wow! so many reversible aprons!
I just love the apple fabric and the black, white and red by najaorama!

I think my apron should be arriving Monday and my partner should be getting hers the day after since we sent them a day apart... I just can't wait Cheesy
