The most important stamping technique you’ll ever learn is to embrace your mistakes! I am a perfectionist and it’s taken me a long time to be able to realize that what I think of as ‘mistakes’ are often what make my cards and gifts special and unique. When I try to perfectly replicate something I’ve seen and it doesn’t go ‘just so’ I can get pretty upset and down on myself. Then I think I am not-so-crafty and don’t want to try again. But often after I give my creation a little space and time, when I come back to it, I realize that what I thought was an error is really what makes that item special and distinctly mine.
So what I’d like to challenge you to do is realize that your creativity is in all of those ‘Oops’ and go out and make something great that is distinctly yours!
