Building your own castle out of blocks is so much fun, why not do it with stamps too?!

Here is a build your own castle kit of carved stamps.  You can stamp them any way you'd like.  You could build Hogwarts or Cinderella's or just your own personal castle.  Possibilities are endless!  I made one set for a swap partner, but loved them so much I have my own too.



The blocks are cut out a bit more chunky that I think gives a fun look, plus it's faster to carve when you aren't worried about lines being exact. 




Making of and testing pic.


Thanks for looking!
Have a great day.

This project is simply genius!  You had a very lucky swap partner and probably very lucky friends and family who are going to receive castles on their cards, envelopes, etc.!

It reminds me of the "Fun with Architecture" stamps set from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Yours are cute and whimsical, it would be fun to play with them.

I am amazed at how neat your carving is.

It is genius! So was the entire swap package for that matter! The carving is incredibly neat and some of the stamps are SO tiny. All of my friends will be getting castle stamped envelopes and letters for sure. I may occasionally share them with my kids.  Cheesy

These are fantastic.  I love the idea so much, and so desperately want a set to play with.  And you did such a great job of carving them.

Thanks!  And I made build your own jack-o-lantern stamps last year.  Made pumpkins, then eye shapes and lots of mouth shapes that you could "carve" on paper, lol.  Fun!

Rocked it, very clever.  I think the 'chunky' look was a good choice -> adds whimsy!
