Recommended Books for Rubber Stamping

Guest Author - Diana Gonzalez

My favorite thing to do when I am absolutely void of inspiration, is go to Barnes & Noble, and pick up a new crafting book.
Or, I might browse Amazon.com and purchase it that way.
When shopping online, you can get a really good deal on any sort of book, especially on amazon. The only problem is, you really are left up to personal taste to decide if the book was worth the purchase or not.
So here, I've gone and picked out a few books in my craft book library, that I think will REALLY help inspire you to create new things, and teach you new ways to use your rubber stamps.
So here's my list of favorite rubber stamping books, in no particular order:

1. Rubber Stamped Jewelry by Sharilyn Miller
GREAT book with cool ideas for making jewelry in combination with your rubber stamps and traditional jewelry findings and such!
2. Stamp Artistry by Rice Freeman-Zachery
This book teaches you to combine your rubber stamping with collage work, fabric, polymer clay and more.
3. Creative Cardmaking: a complete guide by Northlight Books
You HAVE to have this book. While some of the stamps used may be out of circulation, it gives you endless ideas and possibilities for rubber stamping. This book is a MUST HAVE.
4. True Vision: Authentic Art Journaling by L.K. Ludwig
I love L.K. Ludwig, and have several of her books at home. While this book is NOT A rubber stamping book, I love the ideas and inspiration it gives, and you certainly can take them into your rubber stamping.
5. Artist Trading Card Workshop by Bernie Berlin
This book is another MUST HAVE. While giving you techniques and ideas, it also gives you inspiration, and a cool gallery of ATCs to browse. Even if you aren't into ATCs you can take the ideas in this book into any rubber stamping project you have.
6. Rubber Stamping Artist Trading Cards by Jill Haglund
I saw this book on Amazon and bought it on impulse. I'm glad I did. What great techniques she gives, and what great inspiration to create new things with your rubber stamps.

You might already have some of these books. Or all of them. If you don't, I recommended you go and get yourself a copy!
Crafting books for me, do not so much teach me, as they do inspire me. So it becomes a challenge for me to find a good book that is both inspiring, and teaches me something I do not already know.
I also love a good gallery of work in a book, don't you? These books offer plenty of pages to browse through, when you are uninspired.
