At Paper Source, we’re constantly working to come up with interesting and beautiful ways to do calendars.

Paper Source Workshop: Rookie Rubber Stamping

Paper Source Rubber stamping We’ve all been there– standing at the rubber stamping wall, eyes glazed over, pondering what the difference is between all those ink pads and what embossing powders actually even are.

Which is why we’ve created Rookie Rubber Stamping, an all-store workshop designed to explain all the incredible (and easy) things you can do with rubber stamps– enhancing invitations, stationery, favor boxes– really anything! In this technique class, you’ll learn to differentiate between stamp pads, when to use various inks and what papers work best. Plus, you’ll create your own “primer” filled with stamped swatches using our extensive collection of rubber stamps.

After you leave, you’ll be ready to face the rubber stamping wall with the confidence and inspiration to create dozens of new projects. If you’re ready to perform rubber stamping magic, mark your calendar and join us!
