I hope this is the right place for these.
 I love to carve my own stamps! If you've never tried it you should it's fun and fairly easy.
This is one I carved last night.
and here's a quick pic of my handcarved collection

If anyone wants I'm more than willing to write a quick little tutorial?

Tute? Yes!  I remember doing this way back in junior high many years ago.  I forget how we did it.  I remember something about white erasers.

those are so nice. I too would love a tute. I like them all, but especially the flower one on the bottom.

here's a quick tutorial

what you need:
image you want to carve

Linoleum cutters  http://www.dickblick.com/zz402/03/  You can find them in Micheals in the fine are section somewere near the calligraphy stuff

Artist Carving Block {rubber}  I prefer to use Steadtler as it doesn't crumble and the blades cut it like butter! Again you can find it here http://www.dickblick.com/zz404/00/

Step one- transfer or draw the image you want to carve onto the rubber. To transfer an image I use carbon paper and then go over it with an ink pen

step 2- depending on the detail of the image, I usually cut out the background first . So with this stamp I used my largest blade and cut around the image

when carving go lightly that way you have more control over how much the blade cuts.

Step 3- to do the detail work I switch to a smaller blade

step 4- carve out the inside ,leaving the line you marked, I usually leave a little extra ,giving the finished image a bit thicker lines  Tada!

ink the stamp like any other stamp and see how it looks . If you see places you missed just carve the out and go!
