Yeah! Love that hair. Lyle has finally convinced me to try stamp carving, have some safety cut blocks waiting, nothing happening yet? Needs to percolate. xox Corrine

Katie; I think these are the best hand-carved stamps I've ever seen - truly! Funny; last night I was carving some distressed hearts and circles and had a tough time. I see an Xacto knife in the pic, there, do you use for carving? I love the top one you did - awesome! xxoo

Oh Katie, that is AWESOME!! I love your hand carved stamp, how cool is that, you rock!!

Katie said...

Thanks everyone.
Marilyn, I did use an exacto a little for some tiny letter areas, but mainly used a sculpty tool I had. This was was first go (aside from one I did in highschool)...I may get hooked on this. I'm sure there are other tools to use too. xo

That's a cleverly carved stamp there & I love your flower sketch below. You inspire me to get on with drawing 'properly' all the flowers I've been stitching so manically....before they all dissapear into the autumn!

Kris said...

Very inspiring :) I am going to dig up my carving stuff and go for it!

Just stopping by your blog for the first time.

I HEART stamps!

So glad to have wondered over. I can't wait to see more.

Fabulous stamp katie, you did a really great job with it. I will have to find my hand carved stamps - I've not seen them since we moved to Florida! (I think they are in a box in the garage) Or better yet, I might carve a new one. I appreciate the inspiration and your visit to my blog & comments. I thank Donna for "introducing" us! ; ) lenna

Love this! How did you do it? I also like your embroidery - hope the camping trip was fun:)

Joanna said...

Brilliant, you've inspired me to hand carve some of my own stamps - something I've never had a go at.
