Leaving your mark

When I first started stamping, I never thought about the back of the card. It wasn’t until I attended my first SU convention that I began to take notice of other people’s “signatures”.

So I invested in my first “hand-stamped by Lauren Corday” personalized stamp and proudly stamped it on all of my cards! Then I switched to “hand stamped by Lauren” after my wedding, as my new last name was one letter too long to fit-LOL!

This summer, I decided to created my own with the “Text Only” stamp on page 146. What I LOVED about this idea was that I could personalize one, two, three, or all four of the lines–with ANYTHING i wanted 🙂

Over the years, I have had the priviledge of stamping with some amazing artists (yes–I definitely consider them creative artists!). One thing I’ve noticed is how their “signatures” have evolved over the years. I love how they have found their own image, logo, or script to represent their own style. Here’s a small sampling from my Stamp Club members (I apologize, as some of them are a little blurry!)

  1. I love seeing who made a card, and also like to see their names, because I can’t always remember whose name goes with which symbol! I feel a stamp makes your cards look more professional.

  2. I love all the different ways people personalize their cards and I also like to see a name as when you get older it’s hard to remember too much at once.

  3. I never sign my cards. Even though after reading this post I feel like I should! It would be nice to know who’s fabulous artwork you were looking at! 🙂

  4. Ok, so did my last comment not work? Oh boy…technology! I have never signed the back of my cards before…even though I feel like I should now. It would be nice to see who’s artwork you’re looking at! 🙂
