Mountain Bay Stamping Club

The 4th and 5th graders in the Stamping Club at Mountain Bay School met on Monday, September 28th. We learned basic techniques for stamping, and then got to work making some projects! The card above is made using the "thumping" technique. Ink up a stamp with a lighter color, then use a marker and bounce (or thump) the tip up and down on the inked-up stamp. Use another marker to add more color if you wish. Then stamp on your card stock. It's a quick and easy way to add color to an image! I loved seeing the different ways the girls put this card together!

Another card we made was this red flower card. This quick and simple card can be changed so easily just by using a different color, like the yellow one below!

The final project we did was a "sour cream" container. This box is easy to make! After stamping a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of card stock, roll it into a cylinder shape (like a toilet paper tube). Then squeeze the edges shut and adhere. We used velcro so it was easy to open and close the box.
