No, no, not the kind you get at the post office…the rubber-y, inky, sometimes messy but always fun kind! We are big fans of stamps at Moss Cottage. They are a cheap, chic and effective way to decoration, update, create and experiment. We stock pre-made and carve-your-own stamp kits as well as ink for paper, wood, glass and metal surfaces. Here are some photos and ideas to get you inspired! 

Carving your own stamp is pretty easy…and it comes with two rubber sides so you can create two stamps in one. The only thing to remember is that if you‘re using letters or numbers to reverse them first…otherwise your stamp will print back to front!

I created these watermelon and pineapple stamps for a tropical themed hen party. The great thing about stamps is you’ve only got to carve it once (or buy a single premade design) and you can go to town with stamping it everywhere. It’s a really inexpensive way to enforce a theme throughout your party supplies. I stamped boxes, napkins, a wooden crate, party bags…you name it, it got stamped! 

Find stamps and lots of other crafty treats in our Dundrum shop as well as online. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
