kit-kat, your stuff is really amazing. so talented and inspired to!

i checked out the dickblick site but what did you buy? there isn't a stamp making kit or anything, is there? i'm not as proficient as you are but i thought it would be kinda fun to make stamps from some of my little boy's drawings, they are really funny and cute and would be great on letters to grandma and grandpa.

thanks Smiley

NOW CARVE YOUR LITTLE HEART AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

KIT-CAT: I just want to echo everyone's sentiments to say WOW- you do have a lot of patience! I have done some stamp carving in the past (using Staedtler Mastercarve Artist Carving Blocks or even their Mars Plastic erasers) but haven't even come close to achieving the level of detail that you have. Impresseive!

I recently learned a technique for transferring your design to the carving block. The stamps that the gal carved were amazing, so I thought I'd share her tip:
Make a photo copy of it (using a copier that uses toner not ink), flip it over (printed side down) onto the carving block, and iron it. The heat from the iron re-melts the toner and transfers the design onto the rubber. Makes it easy to do reverse lettering, too!

Oh...I did melt a bit of one stamp when the iron touched it, but if I covered the rubber/plastic/whatever with a piece of paper, it wasn't a problem. Also, it didn't take very long to transfer the image (about 30 seconds, I think) and it doesn't rub off as you are carving.

Now, KIT-CAT, I feel the urge to dig out my carving tools and have at it! Thanks for the inspiration and keep up all of your AWESOME work!
