Hi there.

If you are talking about rubber stamps, try this link:  http://www.ruthannzaroff.com/carving/, or try a search here on Craftster - there are lots of very talented stamp makers here!  I know at least a few of them have posted tutorials on their posts.

This one is for cork stamps, but the technique could be used for making stamps out of a variety of materials: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=109015.0

One on rubber stamps:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176460.0

Potato stamps:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=171129.0

More rubber stamps:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=99594.0

Miscellaneous carving info - links, materials, etc:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=145532.0

And those are just a FEW of the topics I found on Craftster - have fun with it, and post your stamps!

I will trade my ephemera scans for your ephemera scans - please PM me if you are interested!

Letterboxer sites often have tuts on carving stamps--FYI, letterboxing is a kind of scavenger hunt where you stamp a hidden book.

I did a quick search but couldn't find much with pics; however, I did find a picture tutorial on how to mount a stamp: http://www.picturetrail.com/gallery/view?p=999&gid=3231178&uid=1652909

Good luck!

I've actually tried carving stamps out from foam - the type they have for kids (you can join them up to form a large mat). It is definitely more tedious then on linoleum (i've not tried on wood yet). I used wood carving tools and was able to get pretty decent results!
