1. Buy linoleum or a stamp carving block (I have never worked with the latter).
2. Take an exacto knife, or gouges if you have them, and cut away. Keep in mind the picture will reverse, and that anything you cut away will print as white, whatever you leave will be black (or whatever color you stamp with).
3. Stamp!

I'm sure the stamp forum here will have plenty more info, but that is essentially all there is to it.

I'm not sure what sort of linoleum I use, I know it's normally used for printmaking but I haven't bought any in a long time. Mine is a yellow-brown color.

I finally went home to visit my family..and a package of gnomey awesomeness awaited me! It's soooooo good.

I got a really really wonderful messenger bag made of green corduroy, with a well-matched brown lining and really detailed embroidery of a gnome on the front. It's big enough to hold almost anything I want, and feels really sturdy. It saw immediate use once it was out of the package. My cousin was jealous when she saw it...I think she might be joining craftster soon after seeing the stuff I got. It also has a pencil case made of the same material that clips into the inside - so handy. There was also a bookmark and a stamp that I will be using at every opportunity.

All in all, I am *extremely* pleased. Thank you so much Ezri_B!

Unfortunately I am away from my camera so pictures will have to wait till the weekend.
