Found these poems at

Acknowledgement to the poet, Sharnie Riley)

It all began with just one stamp
Amd just one stamp pad too
Of course, things couldn't stay that way
And shortly, I had two.

This was quickly followed
By more stamps (three and four)
The craving had now started
I wanted more and more.

A teeny weeny garden set
With a lovely rose
The cutest little teddy bear
Must have one of those.

A couple of those inkums sets
A rollagraph or two
And then another coloured ink
For stamping I must do.

I really love those bear stamps
And country ones are nice
I see that Penny Black
Has some lovely little mice.

I think that I'm addicted now
It started just last year
I now can't pass a catalogue
Without just one more bear.

And then I joined some stamping lists
Upon the internet
From here I learned of other things
That I must really get.

I want to try some brayering
And pearl-ex powders too
Stamping on polymer clay
There's lots of things to do.

My husband is somewhat bemused
As are my children (three)
As I produce yet more stamped things
Keen for them to see.

And now I'm signed up for some swaps
One's a birthday card
The other is a teddy theme
Now that can't be too hard

I'd better go and start them now
I've six of each to do
I want to get them in the post
And then start something new......

and here's another one:

THE STAMPER by Jackie Saxby 1999

I started out with just one stamp
and when I bought some more
I decided that a shoe box
Would make an ideal store.

Then as I added inks and pens,
My stamp collection grew
So I bought a roomy plastic crate
It would last for years, I knew.

Embossing then became my thing
With powders and a heat gun,
Metallics, tinsels, pearls and clear,
I soon had every one.

By now my lovely plastic crate
Was spilling everywhere
And my glitter glue collection
Lay scattered on a chair.

My husband started muttering
And said things had to stop,
So I bought a huge old wardrobe
At the local charity shop.

But after a while,
I couldn't shut the door
And I put shelves in the spare room
To accomodate yet more.

Our house is now for sale,
Something larger being sought,
By the way, did I show you
The latest stamp I bought......

some great card inspirations and projects at this site as well.
