Inkling: inkadinkado stamps

Inkadinkado has come out with a new line of beautiful stamps and I couldn’t wait to try them out in non-traditional ways.

The wood stamps showcase three big time designers in the paper crafting world: Brenda Walton, Susan Winget and K&Company. I used the dragon fly stamp to create this votive.

I stamped the image on white tissue paper and Mod Podged the paper onto a glass votive. Once the Mod Podge was dry I used a little glitter paint to give each dragon fly a touch of  iridescence. One more coat of Mod Podge sealed the deal.


For my second project, I wanted to break out of my neutral shell and go bold with color. With summer around the corner I thought these butterflies stamped on fabric would make pretty patio pillows.
To stamp on fabric, I used craft paint that I dabbed onto the stamp with a foam brush. I heat sealed the images by ironing them but I may need to scotch guard the fabric for outdoor use. If you have any tips or suggestions, please let me know.

Thank you to EK Success Brands for letting me try out some of your new pretty stamps.

And thank you all for visiting.

I link at the wonderful parties listed here and

EK Success Brands provided me with some of the supplies for this project but no monetary compensation was received.


  1. I'm a big stamper but have never ventured beyond paper crafts - these projects just may inspire me :)

  2. I LOVE Inkadinkado stamps!!! So much so---went to scrapbooking class, came home with a "free" black kitten-my friend thought "Inky" would be a good name for-his "full" name? Inkadinkado! Beautiful dragonflies (another fav!) and the bright butterflies are awesome! Thanks for sharing! Blessings, Sharon

  3. Wow! Both projects are so beautiful! Going to check out their other designs now. Thanks for the inspiration~

  4. Wow beautiful! I love the colorful butterflies, but really love the beautiful votive.

  5. I really love the butterflies! I'd love to see the finished project of those pillows. I really love this idea & definitely want to try stamping on fabric, maybe for some fun tea towels. Thanks so much for sharing!

  6. What a great idea to use stamp with craft paint on fabric! Those butterflies are so cool. Please show us the pillow when you're done.

  7. Love both of these! Definitely love their stamps.

  8. I really love the votive and I love dragonflies! My mom and I are going to be giving an evening garden party and I would love to add these to our garden!! BUT I am not sure how you kept the dragonflies straight all the way around (the one on the inside is not even upside down?). Do you have time to give a bit more info on how you did this? Thanks so much!

    1. They are not wrinkled either...

    2. Oh - stupid me - my e-mail is Thanks.
