Creating Patterns using Homemade Stamps

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I've been having tons of fun carving my own stamps. This time around I wanted to create a stamp that I could use to create awesome patterns. For this stamp, all I did was take a 4 x4 piece of card stock, fold it in half twice, and cut out a few pieces—the same way you would make a snow flake, basically. Next I transferred that image onto the rubber directly and started carving away. (To view my 'How to carve rubber stamps' click here). 
I pulled out some of my Kraft wrapping paper that I purchased from my local dollar store to test the stamp on, and it came turned out wonderful. 
Ever since I bought my first piece of carving rubber I’ve been thinking about different types of designs I can make. I’d definitely like to start selling these stamps in my shop in the near future—once I feel like I’ve perfected the carving technique and I have a good amount of designs that I like, I’ll start offering them in my shop. Yay! Let me know what you think about this particular pattern :-)

    1. Me too :-) Michaels has the carving rubber in the print transfer section, where they carry all the tools of paining and such. Hopefully you have one in your area :-)
