I've been practicing my skills all evening. It's such relaxing work  Cheesy

For smaller details, I prefer using a bigger surface, because then the surface is a bit sturdier and gives more grip for the smaller things. Only at the end I cut out the stamp.

Err, I am totally new with this. But it looks so fun, I just registered to hope I can join. I hope it is not a problem I do not own the materials yet, because I want to try. Cheesy It probably will be a very... Basic stamp. But I am in, because of the fun! Cheesy And I love to make things for other people!

Oh!  I wish you could!  Swap requirements are that you are a member for a month before you can sign up for your first swap...since signups close before that time, it looks like you'll be missing out on this round.   Cry  But chances are that it will be so much fun that we'll be hosting another one like it soon.  So keep your eyes peeled!

Meanwhile, be sure to check out the site---it's the best!  And get in your 15 required "posts", as well!  Smiley  Then as soon as your month is over you'll be able to jump into your first swap without any problem!   Cheesy

Alright! Then I will be posting away then! Cheesy
I am now looking at a stamp tutorial, but I can't see some things at that video. If I am correct, you can use a laser printer, and print out your picture, stamp it on the rubber, and rub it on the rubber.

Then I am quite stumped. Do you carve around the parts you want to be on the stamp? And then what? O.O Does anybody know where I can buy this materials in The Netherlands? That is where I live, you see? Smiley

I'm from Holland as well ;-) You can buy cheap and good erasers at the Action (26 cents). Real carving blocks are only found on the internet as far as I know, not in shops here.

For transferring the image on your carving material there are several methods;
- draw your image with pencil, put the image face down on your carving block and rub/draw over with your pencil.
- printed with a laser printer: put your image face down on your carving block and rub over it with nailpolish remover.
I think there are more ways to do this, but these (especially the 1st one) are my favorite.

You indeed carve around the parts you want on the stamp. Then just take your ink pad and test it. You can always carve more...Succes! (Just PM me if it doesn't work for you)

Okay, I've sent in my questionnaire before I go and forget. I'll be out of town from the 28th of May to June 8, so I may have trouble staying in communication during that time.

Oooo.  I am SO cheating!  Cuz I'm the organizer I have sneak peakies at everyone's questionnaires!    Grin   I'm doodling all sorts of fun brainstorming ideas and can hardly wait to organize us all into partners so we can start crafting!  This is SO intense!

Hee hee hee.  Power...MMM...power.  (Forgive me a cruel chuckle.)  Power...mmm...power.
