If you give a crafter a stamp...

If you give a crafter a stamp,
she's going to ask for an ink pad.

When you give her the ink pad, she'll probably ask you for some card stock.

When she's finished, she'll ask for a paper cutter.

Then she'll want to cut more card stock to make sure her card has several pretty layers.

When she cuts more card stock, she might notice her image needs some color.

So she'll probably ask for some markers.

When she's finished coloring her image, she'll want a sponge to ink the edges.

She'll start inking.

She might get carried away and ink every piece of card stock on the table.

She may even end up inking some designer paper as well!

When she's done, she'll probably want to add some embellishments.

You'll have to give her a box of ribbon, eyelets, and the Crafter's Tool Kit.

She'll dig in, tie some ribbon and pierce the paper a few times.

She'll probably need some adhesives.

So you'll get her some glue and tape, and she'll ask for some bling.

You'll bring her some Dazzling Diamonds.

When she looks at the glitter,
she'll get so excited she'll want to use
it on her card. She'll ask for some 2-way glue.

She'll add glitter liberally.

When the card is finished, she'll want to add a sentiment.

With a stamp.

Then she'll want to take a picture of the card to share on her blog.

Which means she'll need a camera.

She'll take a picture of her card and stand back to look at it.

Looking at the card will remind her that she needs to send a RAK.


She'll ask for an ink pad.

And chances are if she asks for an ink pad,
She's going to want a stamp to go with it.

(Parody based on the brilliant "If you give..." books by Laura Numeroff.)

Having a 7 year old who reads, "If you give a pig a pancake..", I loved today's entry. The fact that I've been stamping for 20 years and still need "stuff" also helped. :) Love your bolg. tfs

I came across your blog looking for fellow stampers and must say I loved this. But I am also a mom to an almost 4-yr old boy who loves the books, "If You Give a Moose a Muffin", "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie", "If you Throw a Pig a Party"...I think you get the drift. Very clever on your part.

Thanks for the great blog!
