Hi SabrinaLouise!  Welcome back!  Cheesy

Such adorable hat and booties!  Now I have knitting-envy.  LOVING these!  And, you're right; the flowers and ribbon were the perfect addition.  Smiley

Sophisticated, indeed!  These are some of the most beautiful shrinky-dink projects I've ever seen! Thanks for sharing!

I just have all my cards hidden away in binders---not intentionally, mind you; I just have a very small house.  I've made about 600, and received a little fewer than that (I have a tendency to hoard the one's my hubby and I really like.  *ha ha*)  It was craftster's atc swaps that got me back into art after many many years away---for which I'm really grateful!

Beautiful intricate details on this doll!  I especially love the yellow roses twining around the dolls arm.  What a lot of work went into this, and with great results!  Well done!  Cheesy
19  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / A whole lotta hand-carved rubber-stampy stamps! on: September 08, 2014 08:00:08 AM


So, here it is, short and sweet:  I *love* to hand-carve stamps.  Love love LOVE.  So every now and then I'll host a hand-carved stamp swap.  Just to get my groove on.  [And, ooo, do we have *ripping* fun when that swap rolls around, just in case you haven't had a chance to participate!  (hint hint hint)]

The sets showing here were made for Hand-Carved Stamp Swap--Round 4.

In the interest of full-disclosure---these were made for *nine* separate partners, but all as part of one swap---so if this doesn't fit under the "one project with multiple components clause" of the Craftster Challenge rules, I am happy to bow out!  Smiley

And, yes, I do get obsessive and feel compelled to package all my stampies in little baggies.

So, without further ado,

Here are the stampy-stamps!

This one was a design I copied off the web:

Okay, yes, these were definitely original designs (naughty, naughty me)

And for those of you who are thrilled with the idea of hand-carving stamps, check out the link to our most recent swap Hand-Carved Stamp Swap--Round 5.  The swap information section is chockety full of hand-carving info, links, and fun times!  [Yes, tragically, this swap has been completed!  But I may be getting the urge to start up another one].

Okay, ha ha---talk about talking up a swap!  lol  [Bad WideEyedLife!  Bad bad bad!]

And on that note: May the Gods of Hand-Carved Stamping smile upon you!

Finally had time to update the thread... whew! You guys have been busy Smiley

I'm sorry the updates are so rare lately... we had to renovate our workspace rather unexpectedly since all our fancy shelves decided to fall down tearing wallpaper and large chunks of wall down with them, and right now, large parts of our apartment feel something like this:

(not my actual room - mine looks even worse!)

I will have even less time the upcoming months, and have been thinking of handing over the torch in October. I'll host September's swap, but someone will have to take over after that. We'll be traveling again almost the whole month, and I don't think I'll be able to keep up. If anyone feels like stepping up, just send me a pm!

Ha ha ha!  That is so freaking AWESOME!  LOVE LOVE LOVE YOUR MESS!  Cheesy   I can't believe you've had time to do anything atcs with such a huge project--not to mention the traveling! WOW.
