As my partner Bigbangmomma received her package for the OWS 150 swap I can post the stamp I made.
She said she loved sloths and a stamp so that's what I made.
I searched the internet for inspiration and came up with this one.

This is one of the more difficult stamps I made so as you can see I am not experienced Cheesy
Also, while cutting this, I gave myself a new scar!
(I have made lots of models for my architecture studies, never cut myself, I make 1 stamp, ...)

this is the drawing I started with

I was lucky that my bf was cutting wood for a project and made him cut a tiny piece of wood to mount this sloth on.

Hope she likes it Cheesy

Really cute! You may have given me the courage to try stamp-carving. I got some materials on sale before Christmas, but havent been brave enough to open the package!

Thanks everyone!

@endymion: that's how I did this! I first tried it with an east dog paw drawing and an eraser and a exacto-knife. Then got the real material on sale, (Just 3 little sheets though) and those fancy cutting things, but I like the knife better Cheesy just try it and share it! I'd love to see your result!

@gozer: ah! That's a great idea!

Soooo cute! I love the idea of a stamping that on an envelop. Now I'm thinking about making a stamp for card sets, hmmm...
I started carving with erasers & bought a larger rubber block once but honestly, the eraser was just as good.
I've tried carving with an exacto but I most like using a wee cuticle cutter. It's very precise & near impossible to cut yourself with. I found one at the dollar store for a buck.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.


Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
