Default "Carving" your own stamps??

A friend of mine, who is an art teacher at our school, said that she saw a scrapbooking show on tv the other day that was showcasing a product to make your own rubber stamps without knives/carving tools.

Every year one of the projects for the 5th grade class is to make their own stamp using a block of wood and carving tools, however, there always seem to be injuries no matter how well supervised. (this year one boy had to get 30 stitches in his hand!)

She doesn't remember which show or what channel, but knows that they just used a stylus to "carve" the design into the product to make the stamp.

Does anyone know what I am talking about, and if so, where can they purchase that product?

Thanks!!!

Kym

OH Lord! I can barely get the ink on one already carved! LOL I cant imagine why they go through that year after year with injuries. When I was a kid (years ago) we carved potatoes and used them to stamp our wrapping paper.
Good luck on carving your own...you're a better woman than I am BTW, I do not know where to locate the info you request above.

I got a kit at Michaels years ago made by Speedball that contains a big chunk of rubber that looks like a giant eraser, some carving tools, carbon paper for transferring design, etc. Check the Speedball website to see what is available individually. (I never did use it -- too afraid of messing up!)

I got some supplies from Art Supply store, the carving tools were Speedball, but the rubber thingie was called easy cut or something like that. I drew my actual designs and cut them out.

Thanks everyone for the responses. I was able to find the product. It is called Magic Stamp and is made by ClearSnap.

I remember seeing a cricut expression ad that showed that you could make some with that as well.

Here is the link to the expression ad
https://www.getmycricut.com/?cid=579...e=testiominals

Also just rite sells a kit to make your own stamps as well

Here is the link for that

I watched Martha Stewart do it recently on her show using a potato! You might check her website or google it and see if it comes up.

The speedball stuff originally was for linoleum block carvings. They started offering rubber versions a few years later. I remember carving a really awesome egyptian image in my 6th grade art class. I won first place in a school contest.. I wish I still had it because in my mind it was cool.. I want to see it again.. LOL

One of the ladies I met doing craft shows actually carved some of her own backgrounds stamps and her cards were lovely. Would love to try making some of my own stamps one of these days.

Joannes use to carry the blocks of this and they might still carry it. I know Archivers does also. I cannot remember the name of the product. I did buy one once and use as it was a project for my son for art class and it was easy to do and he stamped fine with it.
