Some more stamp carving

Hey everyone, thanks for all your well wishes.  Still slowly recovering, but I definitely see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Just praying for some good rest tonight!

Thought I would pop in and share some stamps that I carved recently. 

I've been wanting to get back to Julie Balzer's Stamp Carving 101 class, but the next project is to do an alphabet set, so I want to wait until I have a bigger chunk of time to tackle that.

However, my friend Alexandra recently started carving and inspired me to get back into the act, so last week I created these....they are some thank you gifts for crafty friends of mine who have really helped me along, been great encouragers, and have sent some great goodies me way recently.

Stamp carving is so much fun, and I have a whole list of stamps that I want to create.  I'm off for most of next week, so hopefully I'll have the chance to get some more done!

Hope that your week is off to a good start!

  6. Have you done a tut on these before? I mean, when you say stamp carving, you mean like you actually carve out the design? Sorry it's that's silly! I love these word bubbles!
