A comprehensive creative paper crafting class revealing the incredible tools and textures that are out there for free!

Let me show you...

Find out what Stamping without Stamps is all about, let me show it in this short video!


They say that buying supplies and actually using them are two different hobbies
– and how about you, what’s your hobby?

We are constantly told and shown that we need to buy this and that to make the best art. To be the best at crafting to make the most beautiful cards. That we need the latest and greatest to be able to make art with gorgeous patterns and textures.
Maybe you don’t have many supplies and you are wondering if you are able to make art. Or you don’t want to invest in more supplies to make just one project. Or your craft room is already so cluttered that you barely have space to move on your desk or even sit.

Or you are just starting out and you have no idea in what supplies you want to invest.

But what if you could make absolutely mind-blowing art projects that look as if they were made with the best art supplies without buying anything? Now that’s exactly what I’ve been doing in this course. 

When it comes to the different prints and designs on the tags and cards people comment time and time again that they are amazed by the incredibly artsy look it gives. They are baffled when they see it was done without any expensive supplies.

No fancy tools or products were used – all free finds and textures!
Every texture and mark in the tags and cards on this page was made with free stuff and occasionally even trash. And in Stamping Without Stamps, I’ll be showing you where you can find the free textures yourself and walk you through it step by step.

So, do you want to see some possibilities with free tools and textures? Here are just some examples:

But who am I?

Hello, my name is Gerry van der Velden

I’m a Paper Crafter, Creator, YouTuber, and Videographer. Over the last five years, I’ve been building an online community on social media, mainly focusing on doable and inventive art techniques for crafters at every level.

Learning about finding the best textures and making less obvious things work for paper crafting has been such a joy.

And I’ve experienced it’s been the same for lots of other creative people making it such a pleasure to pass it on. This makes me incredibly grateful every day.

And all of that because I’ve learned to see the world in a different way. Like I said none of the textures in any of the pictures on this page were made with craft products.

I created Stamping Without Stamps so I was able to teach people like you to find joy in creating with supplies they already have at hand. With all the ideas gathered together in over 50 easy to digest video lessons.

Once you’ve finished the course, you’ll see the world through different eyes, you’ve learned to look around you and see the options that are out there, freely available for you.

I'm ready to get started!

Here is how Stamping Without Stamps will change your perspective on crafting!

Yes, I know Stamping Without Stamps sounds a bit contradicting, how is that even possible??? It’s all about finding gorgeous patterns and textures. Once you’ve gotten the hang of it, you are going to love the simplicity of it. Here are some of the benefits you may want to consider.

It’s such a fun process that will make you forget about the new things out there. That you didn’t even want or need and still have loads of fun creating and making art.
We all love to craft and making pretty things will make us feel good about ourselves and raise our self-esteem and it can be done without breaking the bank.

You will be proud of yourself and your art will become better and then you will feel better. You will get to embrace who you are making you essentially a better person.
It will also make you stronger because when someone doesn’t like something that you are really proud of. You can just dismiss that way easier because you are feeling stronger.
Making art doesn’t mean that you have to go out and buy. Because just as beauty is all around you so are gorgeous textures. Endless possibilities are surrounding you to make the best impressions on your projects and creations.

Once you are getting started with stamping without stamps you’ll learn to see more options. You will see things in a new light, it will open your eyes to new possibilities. And discover even more textures and creative nuggets of gold for free.

It will help you on your creative journey as well to develop your skills to think outside the box. To see new ways to use your supplies to try different techniques or unusual ways.

“This is a very informative class and one that has remained relevant to my card making and other paper crafting projects! Employing the techniques I learned has elevated the composition of my greeting cards and journal pages. 
This is a great course for crafters at every level!”

I enjoyed the course and I continue to use it as a source when I am working on new project ideas. One of my favorite things was the tag ring. I created one using the ideas in the course, and then began adding to it as I created new backgrounds for my cards and MM creations. I already have a “tag” reference library of over 25 backgrounds. This has greatly enhanced my card making!

The first thing you notice is Gerry’s friendly, easy-going manner. 
The second is how the classes make you look outside the ‘stamp’ box, you start to look at things totally differently.
I like how Gerry makes the most everyday objects into stamping possibilities. You start looking around your home & neighbourhood & wonder if you could slap some ink on to get an impression
