I love hand carved stamps so much. I've tried to make my own a couple of times but failed miserably. This time, I tried something REALLY simple and I'm finally happy with the result.

As you can see, it really is REALLY simple but at least it's recognizable as the thing I intended it to be, which is much more than I can say for my previous attempts Smiley.

I stamped some little cards and tags that I plan to use for swap packages.



And here's the actual stamp...



I'm excited to try another easy design. If any of you professional carvers out there have tips, or see things I did crazy wrong, let me know!!

That's SO cute, Lime!  I love it!  If I were you, I'd be stamping everything with it.

I saw the thumbnail and thought, I bet thats Limeriot!  Tongue

Nice work, I also want to try my hand at stamp carving. Still working on felting along with all my other unpolished skills at the moment though!

It looks great! I know when I first started it was wayyy too easy to slice up a design because your carving tool can move too quick through the lino. Definitely go slow and take your time. Great job!
