If you know me or have read my posts about scrapbooking, you know I love paper and ink. Like, I might need an intervention, I like it so much. Anyway, I’ve seen a company around Facebook the last couple of years called Tickled Pink Paper and Ink and found someone after my own paper-loving heart. Teresa Diepenbrock is the owner of the company. Teresa is an artist based in Portland, Oregon who creates the sweetest stationary, cards, stamps and cupcake flags. I was lucky enough to review one of her handmade stamps and love it!
One of my goals this year is to send more mail, and since I love paper (see above), I have a ton of blank notecards around just waiting to be used. I whipped up a few cards using Teresa’s stamp and can tell you that she has made a really good stamp! I used the stamp on both heavy kraft paper and a lighter weight white card stock. I also used it with three different mediums: ink pad, acrylic paint, and ink with embossing powder.
I wondered if the small loop in the “h” and the little conversation bubble would be clear in all three mediums, and they were! Here are some pictures:
The stamp was nice and crisp, cleaned up well (using a baby wipe) with all three mediums and no staining, and was easy to use. The price ($15.00) is comparable to a big hobby store and I really like supporting a small business!
I can’t wait to use the stamp more (I’m thinking cards for friends having babies, and some bookmarks to give out for N’s new teachers in July).
I’m excited, since I love the stamp so much, that Teresa is offering a give away for one of my readers! The give away is easy, just visit Tickled Pink Paper + Ink, choose one non-custom item that you’d like to have and tell me about it in the comment section. The contest is open through Friday (June 6) when I’ll choose a winner through a random drawing.
I can’t wait to see what you’ll do with Teresa’s sweet creations!
Disclosure: I was sent the stamp for review free of charge, but am not being compensated for my opinions.
UPDATE: Congratulations to Lacey for winning the giveaway! You’re going to love your new stamp!
