So, here it is, short and sweet:  I *love* to hand-carve stamps.  Love love LOVE.  So every now and then I'll host a hand-carved stamp swap.  Just to get my groove on.  [And, ooo, do we have *ripping* fun when that swap rolls around, just in case you haven't had a chance to participate!  (hint hint hint)]

The sets showing here were made for Hand-Carved Stamp Swap--Round 4.

In the interest of full-disclosure---these were made for *nine* separate partners, but all as part of one swap---so if this doesn't fit under the "one project with multiple components clause" of the Craftster Challenge rules, I am happy to bow out!  Smiley

And, yes, I do get obsessive and feel compelled to package all my stampies in little baggies.

So, without further ado,

Here are the stampy-stamps!

This one was a design I copied off the web:

Okay, yes, these were definitely original designs (naughty, naughty me)

And for those of you who are thrilled with the idea of hand-carving stamps, check out the link to our most recent swap Hand-Carved Stamp Swap--Round 5.  The swap information section is chockety full of hand-carving info, links, and fun times!  [Yes, tragically, this swap has been completed!  But I may be getting the urge to start up another one].

Okay, ha ha---talk about talking up a swap!  lol  [Bad WideEyedLife!  Bad bad bad!]

And on that note: May the Gods of Hand-Carved Stamping smile upon you!

WOW!  These are all done so well!  The lines are all perfect.  I think I like the ones with the different blocks the best.

Those are some epic stamps. I made a little simple one the other day and was reminded of how fussy and difficult they are to carve. Incredible work here, such perfect fine lines. I always end up with sketchy bits in the design, I can't imagine how you managed to get everything so crisp and clear.

I'm not online as much as I used to be, don't panic if it takes a while for me to reply to things Smiley.

Those are so great! I how how you have them all packaged. The building blocks set was cool. I just got into stamp carving. I'd love to do a swap sometime. Your partners were very lucky!
