A free stamping resource!

A Stampscapes Challenge

By: Stephanie Loomis

takes rubber stamp artists away from the toil of the "real world" to a magical place where the beauty of nature reigns. Kevin Nakagawa, king of the Stampscapes world for more than 21 years, travels the world teaching his unique style using his magical images. 

Stampscapes images are available on the Stampscapes website (www.stampscapes.com) both mounted on maple blocks and unmounted. The website is loaded with ideas, techniques, and even lessons for scenic stamping "newbies." Stampscapes rubber stamps are also available at many brick-and-mortar stamp stores.

Kevin Nakagawa generously sent stamps to a number of Stamper's Quest designers, challenging them to create new visual retreats. Throughout this week, come back often to check out the samples our designers created. Use them as inspiration to begin your travels down the Stampscapes scenic trail. And take time to enjoy the view.

Awaken your Muse!

    Dot - Here's the link to the Stampscapes website where I found the tutorial on how to do the background:


    This is the first time I ever tried it, and while it isn't half as nice as Kevin's, I think it turned out pretty well. I'm sure with practice the technique will improve! Now that I've played with the stamps, I know I'm going to be purchasing quite a few! lol Thank you, Kevin, for hooking me!

  8. Wonderful to see scenic stamping here! I have been stamping for about 4 years now and fell in love with Stampscapes stamps.
    Many other company stamps fit well to create even more diverse scenes. Your scenes are very pretty! Several of us have gone to Copics and airbrushing now and love them both!

  9. Love to see you highlight the wonderful beauty of Stampscapes. I have been Stampscaping for over 3 years and have never lost the love of these stamps. I recently did a 2-part Beginner's Stampscapes video that can be found on my blog as well as on YouTube. Kevin is a fabulous designer and an incredible artist.

  10. Awesome art with awesome stamps...Artist Hugs...Joe

  11. I would love to know how that background was done!!
