inkjet stamping transferSometimes finding a particular rubber stamp in my small town is pretty difficult. I like to make unique scrapbook pages for each of my children. Rubber stamps are definitely unique, but since I get bored pretty easily, I like finding alternative ways to create crafts.

I like the idea of using an inkjet printer to create the look of lovely rubber stamp images for papercraft and scrapbook pages. Basically, you use your inkjet printer to transfer a digital image onto transparency paper or any high gloss printer stock. When the ink is still wet, flip the sheet and rub/transfer the image on to your scrapbook page.

You'll need to work quickly so that the ink doesn't dry before you get it fully transfered, and it may also help to start with smaller images first. The crafts you can create with your inkjet printer are endless, limited only by your imagination.

    Another method that you can use is to take the inkjet printout, dry or not, and lay it face down on the material you want to transfer the image to. Then use a blender marker and "color" the back side of the image. Blender markers are actually markers that contain only solvent and no pigment, they are used for a variety of art applications. Prisma and Chartpak are two brands I have used to make transfers of inkjets on to wood and chipboard for architectural models, and for color rendering. The markers allow you to spend more time laying things out, and only cost $2-3.
