Welcome Back!

Carving your own stamps is fun!
Here is one of the cards I am featuring today that was made from stamps that I hand carved. Check out my blog to see the other cards

The trick is to carve small stamps that can be used together. For example, one leaf or one flower petal. You can then use the stamps in different combinations. When you carve your own stamps, there is virtually no waste, even the smallest scraps can be used.

Carved stamps are never perfect. That imperfection is what is so special about them. And guess what, all your stamps will work together! We each have our own unique style! So, find your style, and start carving!

 BTW, always carve away from your hand, fingers or anything else that can be damaged or bleed :)

Don't forget to check back tomorrow for another card and inspiration from Christine Patton.

Until next time,
