I hope these links work (not too much of a pro at this thing).
They are just a selection of a few stamps I did. Photos aren't particularly wonderful, but thought I would share.

The second one didn't work, but the stamps in the first picture look good. Smiley

comment on first good link:
I like your stamps. My favorites are the 100% wool stamp and Happy Birthday stamp (perfect font selection).

These are really, really great! If you don't mind, could you let us in on how the process works?

what did you carve these out of? they look great.

You can buy a small "sheet"/block of rubber, which is essentially pencil rubber/eraser but in a larger amount. The stuff I use is made by Speedball.
First you generate an image which is simply black and white. (draw a doodle or copy a logo or print out a message etc).
Second, you trace over the black bits of the image with tracing paper (or grease-proof cooking paper also works) and a pencil.
Then you lay the side with pencil over onto the rubber and rub the other side (the side facing you) until the pencil markings transfer onto the rubber.
You then carve away all the rubber that doesn't have pencil markings on it so you are left with just the "black" of the image.

This is just a quick go at explaining things. I have put a more lengthly thing up on my blog with some diagrams for carving.

and the second image should work there as well.
Any questions, and I shall try to explain. It is quite hard to photograph the process
