I finally got to open my stamp from Katchoo1 today! She sent me a Severus Snape stamp! For a size reference, I stamped him on a normal sized post-it note.



I love it! Thanks! What was funny was that I also had a Harry Potter swap package to open, so it matched!

Thanks!   I'm so excited that all my stamps made it okay and that people liked them!  It was a lot of fun challenging myself to try harder designs with faces & everything.  Snape in particularly was pretty difficult (BTW he's a "chibi" image I found online--I gather "chibi" means "looks like Japanese manga character").

Hope all my partners have lots of fun with their stamps!

I got my stamps from marabelle the other day and they are so amazing!  I love them all, so I am going to get a little picture happy, hope you don't mind. Smiley  Marabelle, what kind of ink do you use to stamp?  You got such even coverage, I'm never that lucky with any of my stamps?

First, here's the box she stamped on, I thought it was a sticker until I opened the box and found the stamp inside!


Here are all the stamps.  The Mrs. Incredible is obviously from my avatar, the butterfly because I love butterflies.  It is so intricate and beautiful!  The Happy Birthday is so I could make some cards to give out, and the made by diana so I can stamp all of my handcrafted creations. 


Playing with my stamps!



I also got a beautiful stamped card explaining each of the stamps, and I got an LTC (my first!) of marabelle's "literary fairy" stamp.  If you havn't seen it, you must check it out!


I can't believe this was marabelle's first swap, I'd take her for a partner any day!  Thanks marabelle, I love them all!

I'm so glad you liked my stamps, Diana. That makes me very happy Smiley

As for my inks I've tried tons but have a few personal favorites. I usually stick to chalk ink in small pads so I have more control of coverage. I like the Colorbox Chalk pads and Dew Drop Versamagic Chalk pads. Black ink pads were the death of me for getting a "true" black until I bought the humongous Archival Ink pad in "jet black". When I use large pads I like to put the stamp on the pad and lightly press on the back on each area until I have full coverage. I then carefully put the stamp on my surface and press on each section of the stamp until I feel like it's transferred well and lift straight up. With a big stamp (like the butterfly) I use the heel of my hand and rock back and forth over the stamp. Sometimes it takes a time or two with fresh ink to get a good image. And I hate mounting my stamps because it makes the edges too mushy for me when stamping and it sometimes transfers carving lines.

Oh, and my dirty secret: I LOATHE carving letters. I avoid it at all costs, actually.

Thanks! I've only been carving for about 4 months so I guess practice and challenging myself is making me improve. I use a #1 gouge for almost the whole stamp and a #5 to carve away the extra crap. Nothing fancy Smiley I want to get into using needles but I know it's more of an xacto carver thing so I don't know if I will. I know people who do it use 14g-22g needles (I'm an LVT so I have access to the BIG ones Wink and they put them in a pin vice.
