Today’s post is part of an occasional series focused on the versatility of stamps.  I’ve highlighted 5 projects using Tim Holtz’s Papillon stamp. Honestly, I’ve use this stamp so frequently that it was hard to choose.  It’s a tried and true favorite.

Here are projects using this stamp on a wall hanging, a card, a tag, and in two art journals. Clicking the title beneath each photo will bring you to the full post for each one. Linking to Creative Every Day.

    Love that stamp I’ve been using it for YEARS. Great samples

  6. Many fabulous examples of how to use a stamp I don’t believe has even been inked in my Closet! Ha! My favorite is the Autumn Leaves! So beautiful, each and every one! I watched your intro video, and I have one question…can the class be viewed over and over again, as a reference?
