I think I'm a CraftGeek!!  I took advantage of the Buy More and Save sale at Purple Cows and purchased the CraftGeek Stamp It kit.  I also purchased the Winter and Autumn stamp sets.  Sale is still on!  I should get the other stamp sets too!!  They stamp beautiful corners and borders on your projects.  I created a gorgeous layered border around my card.  I just love how it turned out!

Here's a closer look at the stamped layers.  The image is from Paper Makeup Stamps, Isabella Fairy.

Here's the Stamp It and the Winter set. When you purchase the holder it comes with the Summer stamps. It's so easy to use. The base of the older has paper guides and the frame has a magnetic closure that keeps your paper in place.   The acrylic block is also magnetic so your stamps pop right in. 
If you follow the guide and are stamping both the corner and border, you'll get a spacing as you can see on the sample below.  I chose to move the paper slightly over so the stamping is continuous.  Just a personal preference, both ways look just as pretty.
