Carving stamps on Sunday

One of the things I bought at yesterday’s pop up store, was this deer head. I mean to use it to give the house a Christmas feel…even though I’ll be in England. And this morning, that beautiful deer head put me in mind to do something animaly and Christmasy.

I decided that carving stamps to use on Christmas cards or wrapping paper might be fun.

Chloe was busy working, ( she had some extra weekend work because her boss had to go out of town), but then she finished her work just as I said, “OK, let’s see what I got!”

One fox and one sitka spruce. I love the way these two turned out. C loved the way they turned out. We decided to carve some more. (note to self: never use scratched stamp rubber)

Clover grabbed a piece and designed some lovely trees.

I love C’s graphic style. This will look lovely on anything she stamps with it.

Pretty soon the fox and spruce were joined by an owl, and then a badger.

OK, time to stop and make Sunday supper. But that was so much fun today. I think I’ll carve some more tomorrow. 😀

    I think your scratched rubber marks look just great! I thought you had done it on purpose 🙂
    I have had my rubber stamp block for too long now – just might get all christmassy with it too!
