DIY Heart Stationery

 

I’ve been wanting to try out The Sweet Spot’s DIY cork stamp for a while.  This sunny Sunday afternoon seemed like the perfect opportunity.  Despite being unable to find a proper craft knife, the stamp didn’t turn out too horribly.

I love the texture created by the cork and the imperfect shape of the heart.  I used the cork stamp with purple ink to decorate some plain stationary.  I was really worried that it would just end up as a purple blob, but it turned out better than I expected.  I think the stamp could also be used with acrylic paint to create a bolder design.

  1. They look fantastic! Almost like purple butterflies. Did you get to drink the wine the cork was containing while you made the stamp?
