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.

I love it! The sheep is just adorable! I love the idea of stamping on the printed pages then cutting that out and mounting it. Very nice!

I love the stamp and what you created with the stamp. I never would have thought of stamping on the pages and cutting them out. I want to give it a try. Looks great.

As a recipient of a set, let me tell you I adore these!  I was just showing them off last evening.   Smiley  It's nice to see what the stamp looks like.
