Carving your own stamp

There are few things better than a lazy Saturday morning, sitting in a sunny spot at my kitchen table, with my favorite mug (enough brew for two refills), plus plenty of room to craft!

One of my favorite craft projects is stamp carving! Once I learned how to carve my own stamps out of these easy to use soft rubber stamp blocks, I’ve become a bit enamored with all that you can create.

If you’re not sure how to get started, then I suggest taking the upcoming Carve Your Own Stamp Workshop on Thursday, April 7, from 6-8pm. You’ll learn to make your own stamp in the class, along with learning great stamping tips. You’ll also leave with all the tools to keep making more. Perfect for use at your own kitchen table one sunny morning.
