Baaa!  The image was loosely based on Shaun the Sheep Smiley  This was my first time using a Speedball Speedy-Cut block and I must admit I didn't care much for it.  While extremely easy to carve, the block was very friable...making it darn near impossible to carve fine details.  The finished stamp measures approximately 2.75" by 4.5". 



I stamped multiple images on old book pages, cut out the images, and mounted them on the kraft cardstock.



Hmmm...perhaps I also need to make some bookmarks and notepad covers! Cheesy

These are adorable. A wonderful use of a stamp and just the right image you carved too. Well done.

How can you say it's not perfect? I think it's perfect. Shaun is so cute! I love it to pieces. Don't feel bad I don't like the Mastercarve white block either. I am really impressed you got such great details with your stamp. I know how hard that stuff is to carve. I bet you had a few choice cuss words while carving, lol.

I love these! So cute to cut them out of pages and mount them.

I agree on those white blocks. I have also found, much to my disappointment, that they seem very fragile, and easily get nicks and chips in them. I need to find a good source of the pink blocks. Where do you get yours?

Thanks Cheesy

I've really been on a kraft cardstock kick!  The possibilities are endless Cheesy  It's a neutral enough base that it looks pretty darn good with black/cream combinations or a splash of color (I've also been stamping them with chalk inks!)
