I made one of these for the recent Use What You Have swap for gala_apples.  I wanted to send her an apple stamp for her own paper crafting, to make personalized note cards or whatever she wanted.  It ended up that I liked it so much that I made one for myself to keep too - just because I had so much fun making cards with them and colouring them in.  





Blog post here with some more pics if you are interested, on the first one,  and on the second one here.

I carved them out of a thin stamp carving material - I like this much more than the soft Speedball stamp carving material because I find that I can get nicer crisper lines with it.

As an extra, I used the stamps to make a couple of sets of note cards too.
