UK Cheap place to buy cards and scrapbooking supplies?

Hi - I'm new to this business. There are many web sites and E-Bay Business card sales, envelopes, scrapbooking supplies, strokes, etc etc I'm looking through the madness! - Have other craftsmen found that all reasonably priced and not too p & p, with a good selection? (Sites in the UK only, please). Yes please help. Thanks.

I e-bay is not bad for my business, and there are some offers very good out there, just have to know what you want. I found E-bay very good for Sakura's feathers are so cheap there, who come from Mexico, but I think I bought them a few times and had no problems. Also www.image-e-nation.co.uk (I think it is. Co.uk) have no shipping and have the same good. I have many links to sites, just think what you're looking for google

Today I am going to give you some scrapbooking ideas and solutions for stamping, embossing combining your stamping technique, and how to make your own simple stamp.

Stamping technique uses a rubber stamp, and I use stamping often to design my own backgrounds by repeating a certain motif all over my background paper. There are literally hundreds of stamps available on the market today with words or images to cover all kinds of themes. It could get quite costly to purchase a stamp for each specific project, but it is a good idea to keep some basic motifs on hand, like stars, hearts or flowers that you will be sure to used often in your scrapbooking.

For basic stamping press you stamp onto your ink pad and make sure the stamp is saturated evenly with ink. Lay your background on some scrap paper. Press the stamp down onto the background, and then lift it off cleanly. Repeat this process pressing the stamp into the ink each time you use it for even results. If you are making a stamped background, the layout always looks more convincing if the motif is allowed to run off the edge of the page. You could also try using rainbow inks to get a multi coloured effect.

If you would like to combine stamping with embossing you will need some clear embossing powder. Stamp and emboss a few motifs at a time so that the ink doesn't dry and the embossing powder clings to it. You could also use a clear embossing pad which will stay sticky longer with a coloured embossing powder.

Lay your background on some scrap paper to protect your work surface. Use a pigment ink pad and stamp your motifs across your paper. Working quickly before the ink dries, sprinkle the embossing powder over the stamped motifs. Pick the background paper up and tip off the excess powder to reuse later. Once dry, use an artists soft brush to brush off any stray flecks of powder. Use a heat gun or hair drier and heat the powder until it melts and fuses.

If you want to make your own stamp, here is how to do it.

If you want to punch out a motif, wrap a piece of wax paper around a self adhesive rubber sheet. The wax paper will allow the rubbber to slide more easily into the punch. Punch or cut out the shape of your choice. Peel the backing off the rubber shape and stick it to a mount. You could use a cork or a plastic bottle cap for a mount. Press the stamp onto an ink pad and stamp onto your background. For another good scrapbooking tip, you could combine two of your punches overlapped to make your own original and interesting stamp.
