26+ Fun Ideas for Using Clear Alphabet Rubber Stamps
Alphabet rubber stamps are purchased for their versatility in creating and personalizing cards and scrapbook pages with unique titles, names, places, dates and special messages. However, your clear hobby alphabet rubber stamps can add as much fun and dimension to your projects as any ordinary clear art stamps. Consider the possibilities:
A Alphabet borders – this can be done simply and easily with a set of clear alphabet stamps, a scalloped edge and a long clear acrylic stamping block. Place the scalloped edge on the block and begin placing the letters in the correct order along the edge of the scallop. Space the letters evenly for the best results. The finished result is a wavy, alphabet border that is fun to use on kindergarten and preschool pages. It also presents a fun way to add scrapbook titles and toppers to your page designs.
B Stamped Background Theme Paper - Choose three letters, usually ‘A’, ‘B’, & ‘C’ or ‘X’, ‘Y’, & ‘Z’ and stamp these alphabet letters randomly in two or three different colors. This will create an interesting background in your stamping projects. To see photos and learn more about creating backgrounds visit the Decorative Backgrounds information page.

L Layering - Stamping letters in layers can give a multidimensional look to scrapbook page titles and card making sentiments. This works well with solid alphabet stamps stamped first to create a background word, then add either another solid stamp or a more detailed stamp that is smaller than the letters in the background word and use them to stamp another word over the background.
