After seeing clayfaery's hand carved stamps I wanted to post mine. I haven't seen many other people that do them on the web. She's totally right about them being addictive.

These are my most recent I've made. I made the rocket ship and dragonfly.


These are the insects I made.



This is the first stamp I carved. I really wanted a hedgehog stamp. I couldn't find one that I liked and the size I wanted. So I made one! Its started the obsession. Smiley

i love the beetle!  and the hedgehog is amazing!  it is hard to find a good hedgehog stamp that is not cutesy.  yours is sweet, but natural looking.

Are these done using linoleum blocks?  I really like your hedgehog.  Never thought about making my own stamps.  Great idea.
