A heart is one of the easiest stamps to carve. That's why it's the first stamp I teach people how to carve in any stamp carving class, and even in my book, Carve Stamp Play.
As a result of teaching it over and over, I have a tiny collection of heart stamps.
I love hearts, I think you can do really spectacular things with them, depending on how you combine them. For example, I stamped out a fun piece of paper by mixing and matching this little group of heart stamps:
Of course, given that tomorrow is Valentine's Day, I had to take some time to carve up one more heart stamp!
A great addition to my collection!
Whenever I post about stamp carving I get a lot of questions about the materials I use and where to get started. So here is that info:
- Speedy Carve is my favorite rubber.
- I use a Speedball linoleum cutter.
- To learn how to make stamps, you can take my online class and/or buy my book.
- You can also go googling and find a million excellent tutorials on the topic!
I hope you're staying warm wherever you are.
Thanks for stopping by!
