More Carvings

I love carving stamps.  Here are some more that I have made.  My favourite is the leaf.

I love stazon blue teal ink pad it is fab.  The images were stamped with this colour.

I have used erasers bought from the pound shop to make these stamps.  I made two more last night.  A mushroom requested by Marcus and initials for a friend.  I will post pictures later.

I love this craft, it is quick; therefore satisfying, cheap and unique to each carver.  I can't get enough.

Yesterday I went food shopping and ended up in our local Sainsbury's.  I have been checking out erasers on my travels wherever and whenever so this was not an opportunity to be missed.  I found a mega bargain.  Maped erasers, a pack of three, on offer for 3p.  Yes you read it right!  3p for a pack of three making it 1p per eraser.  What can you get for 1p?  As you can image I bought the entire contents from the shelves.  I bought 15 packets which means I have 45 erasers to play with.  This cheap craft, just got cheaper.  Will post pictures of my latest carvings when the light improves.  We are still very dark here.

  1. they are brilliant Monika

    this is something I desperately want to be able to do....I've bought all the tools and have tried a couple of stamps but I just don't seem to have the control over the tool to cut in a detailed way....either that or I'm using the wrong kind of rubber...I was using those white mars staedtler types. I skid and over cut and just make an almighty mess!

    I'll try some pink pound shop rubbers instead - thanks for the tip!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts. You let me know I'm not on my own.
