Ever wish you had a specific stamp and unable to find one???? Here is the answer! Stampin' Up has a stamp carving kit that is really easy to use and so much fun!
This was my first carving. I really like it, but don't look too close LOL! I had been wanting a dark silhouette stamp for literally years and now I have one, PLUS I can say I created it myself!
Most if not all of the panda stamps I have found usually had extra stuff on the stamp that I didn't need, or it was a set that the panda was the only stamp I wanted, so I just finished doing this one today.
Want to know a few tricks that I have already? Take your time and remember that the rubber carves REALLY easy!! Don't cut a square out to carve your stamp. Copy the image then cut it out to save on rubber. After it is done, rough up the rubber with a sanding block for better ink coverage. (you can see the difference with my panda, the darker image is the one after the sanding) Don't forget to clean it after sanding and before inking.
I prefer wood mounted stamps, but if you like the cling mounts, just purchase a package of our cling mount foam sheets and attach your new stamp to that.
I really enjoy doing this, so hope you will give it a try! Don't forget that our Sale-A-Bration is only available until the end of March, so don't miss out on all of the freebies you can earn!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!!!
