I've been working on these stamps for over two weeks. I still have about twenty to go.

Every night I force myself to sketch five new designs. The next day I carve all of them or none of them.

Cool! I can see they're something on spools, but what? Eraser? I'd like to see a couple close up.

That's super cool. I've always wanted to learn to carve stamps but it looks complicated.

Props to you on your diligence of 5-a-day (kind of like the food pyramid but for crafts!) Grin

You've got some neat looking images there! I really like how they are simple and icon-y. How big are they? And, what do you a) carve with and b) carve on? I love your idea of mounting them on wooden spools!

I'm using Staedtler Mastercarve.

The diameter of the spool is 7/8" so all the images are smaller than that.

These are really cute, I've carved a few stamps myself.  But these are great!  Especially at the size that they are.  My mom wants to start carving stamps using the erasers, but I think these blocks would be easier and better to use!

Great job!
