Default Home-Made Stamps

Hi Everyone!!

So has anyone else been bitten by the "make your own stamp" bug?? I sure have. It would be fun to trade stamp ideas. Here are the images I've carved so far with some cards I've made with them:

Star
Chevron
More Chevron
Even more chevron
Diamond Design

and I have a bunch of newer and larger images coming up on my blog this coming week.

Please share your ideas!! I need new creative ideas so I can keep carving!!

Wow Donelda, those are really cool!!! I too have tried to carve my own stamps, not out of erasers but out of leftover trimmed stamp rubber - they sucked and I never use them. I carved an ugly heart (uh, I was trying for a PRETTY heart) and a totally crooked circle (was trying for a reasonably decent circle).

Those remind me that when my kids were little, about 25 years ago, I carved simple shapes in gum erasers. I had only red, green & black ink pads back then. Until your post, I never connected by current stamping addiction to those stamps. Guess I've always been a stamper at heart.

I don't have the bug, but there was a class given on it last weekend that I would have loved to go to, but I already had made other plans before I found out about it. This gal does BEAUTIFUL work. A friend of mine bought one of her one of a kind stamps with my name on it!! "LOVE" it, looks a lot like my signature. I will find her name and post it.

Years ago, I made stamps by cutting shapes in craft foam and gluing them to wooden blocks. Since craft foam can be cut with regular scissors, it was easier than carving.

These directions came up in a quick search: Make Your Own Stamps | I Scrap, U Scrap

I bought the equipment (lino cutter, and blocks) but haven't taken the plunge yet. You inspire me!

Oh Jem, you've got to try it!! It is so much easier than I even thought it would be. Here is the latest card I've posted on my blog using my large Damask design. So cool to know that I made it with my own hands!!
