All this printing I am doing has my mind thinking about other kinds of printing and stamping. Once I get in the swing of things I can make quite a few prints in a relatively short amount of time. I'm thinking of printing thank you cards, party invitations, gift tags, even fabric like handkerchiefs and ties. I was checking out all different stamps on Etsy and these were some of my favorites. By doodlebugdesign, TC Witchcraft Factory, KL Room, and Green Garden Stamps these really show the range of hand-carved stamps out there. From sweet, to elegant, to quirky it seems like stamping might finally be evolving past the angles and teddy bears hugging hearts I used to associate them with. These gorgeous stamps are really reasonably priced given all the work I know must go into making these.
If you want to try your hand at carving your own stamps check out my tutorial. My skills are nowhere near those of these artists, but that's just more evidence of how easy it can be.
