WOYWW - my DIY carved stamp!

I've never done this before, but I wanted to try to make my own stamp. I thought that it would be better to make a big one. A small stamp might just be to intricate to carve, because I've never done this before.
  I drew a flaming heart { I'm really into flaming hearts lately  }
directly on this rubber carving block and then just started carving away!
Not really knowing if I wanted to take more of the carving rubber off or not
I made a first control of how it would look when stamped.
I really like the way it turned out!!

So now I have an absolute unique and one of a kind stamp that nobody else has!  I think that I'm going to have to try this out in my journal.

Gotta go now, I'm off to journal again 



  1. Well done. Great finished stamp. Totally unique - no-one else has one like it anywhere.
    Take care. God bless.

  2. Großartig liebe Michelle,
    das wäre ein Stempel nach meinem Geschmack,
    ich liebe Herzen - wirklich toll.
    Ich wünsche dir noch einen schönen Abend.

  3. Wonderful! Beautiful job! And isn't it just too addictive how carving into that soft rubber feels! Just a tip - I like how my hand-carved stamps look if I use paint intead of ink... thanks for the peek into your arty stuff! Lynne #55

  4. What a lovely individual stamp - well done. I'm not a scrapbooker or journal maker but I do linocut prints so I appreciate the work you have done - keep being original I say. Have a great week x Jackie 22

  5. Einen ganz tollen Herzstempel hast du dir hier geschnitzt, wirklich ganz schön groß. Bin schon sehr gespannt, wie du ihn im Journal einsetzt. Mir gefällt auch gut, dass du im Herz Linien hast stehen lassen, das wirkt wie ein Holzschnitt.
    Was ist das für ein Material, woher hast du es und vor allen Dingen, wie viel kostet diese Platte? Meine Stempelschnitz-Platten sind weiß und ganz schön teuer. Deswegen bin ich so geizig mit dem Material und schnitze eher kleine Stempel...Aber es macht so viel Spaß, nicht wahr!

  6. That's awesome!! The stamp turned out reminds me of the Lino prints I did for my art exams in school 💖💖

  9. Your stamp is super. I've not attempted something so intricate, it worked out really well. Happy WOYWW BJ#26

  10. Another great idea for crafting!! Love it.

  11. Great job. Was it very difficult to cut? Do you need special tools? I'd love to give it a try but don't know where to even start!
    Have a great day.

  12. Great job! One area I've not ventured into yet. Though there are a couple of designs that if I want them as stamps, I might have to. I hope mine turns out 1/2 as well as yours. Kudos! Creative blessings! Kelly #42
