Happy hump day everybody!  I know I’m always glad to make it to Wednesday and have the weekend in sight!

Today’s post is just a fun DIY project that can turn any blank stationary into something personal  by using a simple stamp.  These personalized cards are great to give as a gift (perfect for a hostess gift,or stocking stuffer) or to make for yourself. 

So go ahead, make your mark!




I found this adorable spoon and fork stamp at Joann Fabrics the other day and fell in love with it.  There are also many different types of stamps available at Michaels (they have a mason jar stamp – love!) and online at Etsy.com.




It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3.  Pick your stationary or notecard, press your stamp on the ink pad color of your choice and transfer onto the paper.  Personalized stationary within seconds – love that!









My mom had this “Lane” stamp made for me in college.  I hadn’t used it much until just recently and now it is one of my favorites. 

Again, there are many sites online that offer stamp personalization, as well as many local office supply stores.  By “Googling” the information you can find many other options and stamp shops near your area.






Stamps are also great for personalizing invitations.  We used this pumpkin stamp as the trademark for all of our wedding invitations and thank you notes. 

We saved tons of money by doing them ourselves and loved that we could carry the pumpkin theme throughout many details of the wedding.  It definitely added a more personal touch without the cost of professional printing.





  • These stamps can also be used on gift tags, recipe cards or even seasonal notecards.  The possibilities are endless!
  • Many stamp shops will also personalize an address stamp to use on envelopes.
  • When buying stamps from Joann Fabrics or Michaels, look for 40%-50% coupons before you go.  Many times they have them in newspaper flyers or online.  I get them in the mail all the time and love to save a buck.
  • Another great gift idea for any time of year would be a personalized monogram stamp with ink pad and stamped notecards.  I love monograms!




Have fun, play around and enjoy!
