Stamp That!

I've been hopping around the idea of starting a new craft. first i thought i wanted to do wire work, but i had none on hand and didn't know when i'd be able to get to the craft store to get some. after researching which kind of metals were the best as far as hypo allergenic stuff goes (if there is a such thing) i've decided to go with half hard sterling silver.
i'm not sure where i'll get this from, or how much it'll cost, but i'd love to start making earwires.

erasers are cheaper, and i already have an x-acto knife, so- the first new thing i'm trying is stamps. this is my first one and it's rather rough, i know but its still mine and i love it!

ok- maybe not love- it's so flawed, lol but!- it's not the worst i'm sure so i'll go with it.

I'd like to be able to create simple stamps with "LC' on them so i can Lanee's Crochet some stuff up!

if i can find my 40% off coupon to Michaels, i'm going to get a full x-acto knife set. I've read that i'll also need some tracing paper. i just can't wait until i master this!
it will be awesome.


  1. Keep trying!!! this is a great idea. This stamp is cute, I'm waiting to see your other stamps.

  2. I love that stamp... and it is not flawed it has a rustic look.. some people... me... pay more that type of look :) I am excited to see what you come up with.. you are so talented :)

  3. Ok before you buy that fancy x-acto set, you should just look into buying some unmounted linoleum and a cheap speedball linoleum kit. It will be far easier to make stamps and just draw on the surface with a sharpie, and if you make a mistake just paint over it with white out, acrylic paint, or gesso.

  4. wow bryan, i would have never known to look for that stuff- it looks far easier than erasers and i just discovered that there's a transfer paper type stuff that i could use too!
    thanks for the info =-)
