These have been done for a few weeks, but I am just now getting around to loading the pictures....

First up, we have a collection of Alice in Wonderland stamps, including two more Cheshire cats, a dormouse in a teapot, two tea cups, a "drink me" bottle, and the Queen of Hearts:









Then, my first Doctor Who craft tribute, the TARDIS:


I need some darker blue ink to make it show up cleaner.

These were my first stamps using the soft pink material. It is so much easier to use. I also bought up a bunch of it on clearance at Michael's. I need to figure out how to mount the bigger ones though to make the pressure even when stamping. there are a few that I had to stamp multiple times to get full contact.

Thank you both! I'm finding that stamp carving comes really easy to me. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend. I free handed a bunch of sketches and just rubbed them on, but I also read you can rub on printed images for carving also. Super easy!

p.s. hgddm, I love your avatar. What in the world is that creature from?

I got all of the pink carving rubber on clearance at my local Michael's. You can also order it online, and it is called "Speedball Speedy-Carve". There may be other brands, but that is all I have seen in person. I also get linoleum blocks at a local office and art supply store.

Happy carving!

The nearest Hobby Lobby is an hour away from my current residence (I'm moving in a month and a half and will have to find everything again Sad ). Michael's actually put all of there's on clearance so they don't carry it anymore at my local store Sad Sad

Have you tried using a repositionable spray adhesive on the back of the stamp and then just sticking it to one of those acrylic blocks you use for store bought clear stamps? I got some hand carved stamps in a swap a while back and that's what I did and it works great, after I use the spray adhesive I just stick a peice of plastic on the back of the stamp and store it with the rest of my un mounted stamps. That repositionable stuff lasts for quite some time.

I had never hear of that type of spray. I will have to look into it. Recently I found a large number of Halloween stamps on clearance for $0.25, so I cannibalized the wood blocks. I have been making a lot of stamps for other people, so I think permanently mounting those has worked really well. Thanks for the advice Smiley

http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?CATID=cat1125&PRODID=prd1818 this is the kind I use. Its pretty cheap and works great. They should have it at michael's too and probably even at walmart. Its either in the glue section, the spray paint section, or the scrapbooking section depending on which store you go to. Oh and make sure you wear rubber gloves when using it because if any of it gets sprayed directly on your hands its a major pain to get off, the first time I used it I had a sticky fingernail for about a week.
