When I was in college (or maybe even high school), I made my own stamps by carving sheets of rubber with very sharp gouging tools. I spread ink from a tube on a piece of glass and brayered it onto the stamp before pressing it to paper. These images became Christmas cards. I don’t remember, but I suppose I was introduced to this in an art class.
Fast forward several years (don’t even bother to guess the number!) and I became enthralled with using pre-designed, pre-made rubber stamps to create cards using seemingly endless techniques. Before long I turned my hobby into a business.
When you carve your very own stamp, you have will have an entirely new and different creative experience. And when you’re finished, you will have created a one-of-a-kind stamp!
