Carve your stamps ~

This craft has really captured my imagination. I've had this set of linoleum cutters for several months languishing on my desk. After spending some time looking at the stamps in this group, I felt impelled to carve an elf shoe.

Today the office supply store had 3 pink erasers for a quarter. This may or may not be great carving material, but it will do for me. I am now the proud owner of 24 pink erasers.
Two of my kids have caught my enthusiasm & carved a few of their own.
I've love the work of two etsy sellers who carve stamps - so inspiring!

and Craft Pudding.

I really admire their work & am amazed at what they can do!

Wonderful! I love that little apple--who did that?
Can we go out this week? It's a good week for me because Dan isn't working overtime.
I'll have to try carving a stamp of my own. I have one of Corabelle's stamps--the circus tent one of course.

Larkin made the apple, Sam made the Harry Potter/Marvel Comic somethingorother symbols.

all I can say is I just love love love love these. The skill! The cuteness!
