Full Answer

Choose a rubber stamp that complements the content of a scrapbooking page. For a page dedicated to an outdoor event, stamps include ants, bunnies, flowers, trees, horses and more. Be creative with the color of stamping ink to make the page even more fun. Other interesting categories of rubber stamps include animal spirits or various holiday themed stamps.

Rubber stamps aren't limited to wood-mounted ink stamps, either. There are also silicone, clear and cling rubber stamps. Clear stamps need to adhere to an acrylic block before stamping. These stamps are available in a wide variety of colors and designs. Clear stamps can also be colored in using stamping ink, paint or markers for easy individualization. Cling stamps require an acrylic block for use. These must be inked before use, but they allow greater detail than clear stamps. Cling stamps are clear, and they are easier to place than opaque, wood-mounted rubber stamps.

Silicone stamps require very little pressure for proper stamping and allow for more detail than traditional wood-mounted rubber stamps. Silicone stamps must be inked before use.

If prefabricated stamps cannot provide the desired styles or patterns, it is possible to create custom rubber stamps online. Follow the instructions on stamp creation sites to create a custom wood-mounted rubber stamp.
