I hope we are not supposed to wait until we get all our stamps because I got my first one and I am in lurve!! And so I must show off!
I got my first stamp from MunLtStmpr. Bow to her mad skilz.
For starters, check out this packing material...

Then check out how what she did it on, does this not just make the ideas flow?

Because it's on a cube I got 4 prints- you can see them all in a row.

The first is a crown that says 'queen of the universe'- because I am. Then it's lamina, my user name. An A (for my last name)- I've been looking for something like this to mark me and the husband's books! And finaly my etsy store title!

I hope my macro works out well enough that you can see the detail in this. I just boggle at how tiny this is!

This totally inspired me today and I have busted out and almost finished my stamps! (That and thanks to a friend for baby sitting my 2 year old!)
Thanks MunLtStmpr!! I just want to sit and stamp it out again and again!

That's amazing!  How do you carve such tiny details?

I received my stamp(s) from MunLtStmpr today and I'm sorry to everyone on dial up, because this stamp is so awesome I have to post three pictures to explain it.

First of all, the packaging was fun!

Look at all those stars!  They make great padding; only a couple got squished and they popped right back up with a touch.

Then, behold the fact that MunLtStmpr carved onto a rubber cube (die) for a total of FOUR stamps in one!  Four!  Four cool stamps, just for me!

Here is a mosaic to show all four carved sides.  I don't know how she carved such incredibly small details.  They are tiny.  The cube is just under an inch and she got such fine details as Jon Stewart's eyebrows and astronaut suit wrinkles.  Incredible.

Here is what they stamp like (paper tilted a bit, squares are actually square IRL):

I couldn't stop saying "wow".  All four stamps are perfect.  And she did some smart stalking, because I love all the subjects she chose, plus I now have a screen name stamp!

Thank you very much MunLtStmpr for the great stamps.  You are an incredible carver and I hope my comparatively meager skills will at least entertain you when you get your stamp!

Ehhh, I sure hope my carving skills are half as good as those. Look at all that fine fine detail.
What amazingly great stamps those are and I LOVE all those little stars.

I'm so glad you both liked the stamps and enjoyed the packing.  I was drafted to assist with my work holiday celebration and got rather carried away with making the stars.  (As one of the professors said, "you made all of these??!  We need to find you a husband.")

My student worker (who was not asked to, but was curious so he) counted the stars I made.  Well, he started to.  He gave up when he reached 1,000.  We estimate that I probably made 5,000 of them.

For the record, I agree with the professor!

As for the stamps... when the challenge was posted, I couldn't get the idea of doing carvings on a die eraser out of my head.  One object, 4 images, small, compact size... I just had to try.

I'm so glad you liked them.  I've been carving for 15 years and for a long time probably carved more days than not.  I use an exacto knife and in recent years have started using 3x reading glasses for some magnification.

I'm very much looking forward to everyone's carvings!  As much as I do like stamping, I like carving more and this is my first swap ever of trading the actual stamps themselves.  Michelangelo said, "I saw an angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."  I can't wait to see the angels all of you set free.

I find joy in creating and helping others create not just jewelry and crafts but best of all, the life they want.

Wow, MunLtStmpr! Those stamps are amazing! And I am now even more firmly cemented in the beginner category, so I hope my partners are not disappointed!

I, unfortunately, won't be getting to carving until Sunday. I offered to help my brother and his wife move this weekend. Fortunately, they aren't moving until next weekend, but they do need help packing. So, I'm driving out tomorrow after a class to help them out. I'll be back Sunday afternoon...and then I can carve! I don't know if any angels will be set free...I'll be happy with a cherub Wink

The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.

MunLtStmpr, those are gorgeous!! And what a genius idea with a die eraser!

MunLtStmpr, your stamps are amazing and that is such a clever idea with the packaging!  Grin

I can't believe you have been carving for 15 years. Eek! I've discovered the joys of stamp carving in the last six months. I hope mine are not too "rustic", though I realise I have made a schoolboy error on one (sorry! I had sent it before I realised what I had done...I hope it does not affect the stamping pleasure too much Embarrassed).
