I've done a lot of stamping in my day, but this book still offered me new ideas. There are plenty of great, colourful pictures on every single page, making it easy to understand. It is also a great reference if you're just looking for a little inspiration when crafting.

I ordered this for my mom for Mother's Day, she had only recently become a fan of scrapbooking & had been told this was a good book to learn things with. I haven't read this myself, but she has told me it's easy to understand & has great ideas.

Amazon.com had the best price, it was at least $10 cheaper than anywhere else I'd looked.

Excellent book for rubber stamping novices Nov. 28 2005
By peggy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I rarely take the time to write a review, but after purchasing this book, I had to take the time to do so because it really is one of the most comprehensive ones available for rubber stamping. I have examined at least twenty books on rubber stamping, and this one was definitely the best out of the entire bunch. Very useful information, good instructions and suggestions. The book is easy to use and categories are grouped together very well. As a new stamper, I was a bit overwhelmed by all the products available, and this book streamlines the information so well. Excellent ideas for you to be creative with as well!

The Rubber stamper's Bible by Francoise Read Aug. 9 2005
By Linda Hansen-fisher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is VERY valuable for any stamper experienced as well as novice. I loved it and bought an extra book for a friends' birthday.

Concise explanation of different techniques, from bleaching, decoupage, understanding colour, masking, the use of different inks, powders, pencils etc, etc...

I know, that you would not regret buying this book. The details are followed up by excellent pictures. You would think I work for this company, but I am just a home stamper who teach cardmaking and cannot find enough praise for this book. Sincerely Linda

Keep it near your stamping table March 9 2006
By MAD Writer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After checking this book out from my local library, I decided I had to have my very own copy to refer to again and again. "The Rubber Stamper's Bible" is definitely like having your very own workshop right at your fingertips. Beginners and experienced stampers alike will find the book to be a resource for how-to advice and design tips. Beginners will love Reid's chart describing the various inkpads, which I keep on my desk, and the surfaces required for the best results, as well as the chapter called "Colour Workshop." More experienced crafters will find the technique-led projects inspiring and challenging. Read explains a project, such as masking, step-by-step. She starts with simple card, but also gives two or three more advanced examples at the end of each section.

Just Starting Feb. 1 2006
By Bookworm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm just starting the whole rubber stamping scene and I'm using it for altered art. This is the best book out there to be doing this and it is very user friendly. I highly recommend it and it gives wonderful advice, plus it has pictures. The writer doesn't assume you know what "masking" is, she actually shows you. I recommend this book to anyone who is just starting or just want to learn some new tricks that you didn't know about before.

Gets the creative juices flowing.... Aug. 26 2006
By RedGem - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I mainly bought this book due to the great reviews I read... not that I needed another beginning stamper's book, but, I wasn't disappointed. I'm not always pleased with the finished products created in the book, but they definitely gave me so many new ideas, ones that I know I will be pleased with! I especially like the cards created using an acetate sheet over a background paper and the shrink plastic.
