Stamps & Pretty Paper



Today I bought some art materials online to play around with!
I ordered:
**Two clear stamps--one damask, one a double scroll
**12, 12X12 sheets of Anna Griffin Dorothy Graphic Black Damask Paper from Memory Villa store
**4X6 Acrylic Stamp Block from an Ebay store called 'Heart-Shaped Rock Cottage', who by the way, is super fast and emailed me to say she'd shipped my order within an hour after of me placing it!

The damask print paper, I may use as bellybands for the invitations.
A bellyband is simply a decorative element you can use to embellish invites--pictured in orange at right---->

I bought the stamps and stamp block to use on our printed materials. Stamping--particularly clear stamping--is a whole new world for me, so I had to do some research. But from what I've seen they work really great and will undoubtedly be a fabulous accent to my new Print Gocco that I have asked Santa for as a Christmas gift!
More on stamps and gocco later.

I am looking for black damask paper to use as a belly band on my daughter's wedding programs. I cannot find the damask print you show on your blog which is exactly what I am looking for. Can you me know how to find it?
