STAMPlorations Inspiration #104

Time for some STAMPlorations inspiration.  I've been customising things, in particular this bottle carrier that I bought on Etsy as part of a friend's birthday present.  I used the Sketchy Alphabet stamp set, and after a bit of trial and error (on scrap paper!) I got the stamps lined up on a long acrylic block, with gaps for the missing Es and Rs, then stamped in the gaps.

Here's the reverse side of the carrier:

I used Ranger Archival Coffee - looks like it's been burnt in.  (I used to do woodburning many years ago, still got the tools.)  I gathered the carried up in cellophane and tied it all at the top with string instead of ribbon for a rustic look.  The recipient was delighted :)

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.  Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate.


  1. Well, who wouldn't be delighted at that fabulous gift! Great idea!!! So much easier than wood burning, I guess! Prost!

  2. this is a fun idea.
    We often visit other condos
    and take our beverages along
    with us. this would be a
    conversation piece as well as
    thanks for sharing.

  3. LOVE this idea! I had been wondering if I can stamp on wood, and now I need to try it out.

  4. Brilliant, Shirley ... what a fantastic idea for a personalised gift ... not surprised the recipient was delighted! Hugs, Anita :)
