What to do on a Saturday!

What to do on a Saturday!

Well I purchased some metal stamps.

Thought I would have some fun.
So I needed some old spoons, a hammer, a steel box,
and my new stamps.
they measure 1/8".
I have seen these plant markers made of spoons so
for the cost of $11.99 I purchased my first set of metal stamps.

I hammered the spoons flat.
Then I proceeded to measure them across.
Marked where my letters would go and used a permanent marker.
Took one letter at a time and hammered hard.
Horray! it worked. Once I had my stamping done I coloured in the letters with my marker.
Sage, parsley, rosemary and thyme.

 Used both sides. (sorry my pictures came out blurry) but you get the drift.
Then I didn't stop there, I found a small washer in my husbands tool drawer and a light bulb
went off.
Why not try stamping on this to make a cute necklace.
Well what do you think.

What else can I find?  There's no telling what I  might use this stamp set on.
Yikes!!!!!! Hide the silverware...

What are you working on this beautiful day?

                              Have a great day!

  1. Hi Linda, I love this idea and think it looks fabulous. The necklace is really cute too. I found some old silverware that is in really bad shape and want to do the same thing but didn't know where to buy the stamp letter set. Can you advise me on a place in the Maritimes that would sell them? Thanks so much. Have fun with your new 'toy'. Pamela

  2. I've seen stuff like this! Yours turned out great! Do your spoons have to be silver? Would silver plate work?
    Stamping is fun!

  3. How much fun is this? :D What a cute craft. I would love something like this!


  4. Oh you can have some real fun with those stamps! I love the spoons & washer necklace!

  5. I've been wanting to get a set - I can't wait!!!

  6. Oh Linda, I love those spoons! What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday. Enjoy your Sunday, Gail

  7. Very nice! I have metal stamps and a spoon or two, but I have not had much success with stamping clearly. I probably need a better surface to put the thing I'm stamping on, and to hit way harder (I'm always scared of hitting myself!).

  8. Cute cute cute, Linda! You did a great job and they truly look so professional! :) xoxo laurie

  9. I have had a set of metal stamps for years and hardly used them. Thanks for the great ideas!

  10. I love the spoons with the herbs stamped on them. I've seen them in shops and often wondered how they made them. Now I know. :-)

  12. I've always admired similar items but didn't realize it was so easy, great job!

  13. I am almost positive I have some metal stamps. I am going to have to give this a try - but first, gotta locate those stamps :)

  14. Beautiful! I have been looking around for some metal stamps like that!
