Hand Carved Stamps Tutorial Part 2

The weather has been unseasonably rainy this week
and I thought I wouldn't have time to do Part 2 of the tutorial,
but the sun came out this morning :)
I'll be adding the explanatory text over the weekend
...I didn't want to leave you hangin'
I bet you can even start carving by just looking at the pictures.
This tutorial was done with plain white erasers. you don't need to have
a special carving block to make simple & fun stamps.
Click on the images to see them LARGER
and look at all the details.
Part 3 next week!

Have a lovely weekend friends.

Hello Geninne! your tutorial it`s very good!! Thanks for this. What material use, another block? In Guatemala don`t have block for this. Can i`use a eraser?

Thanks for your help!!

¡Mis millones de gracias! Tan, pero tan didácticas tus fotos... ni hace falta la explicación escrita! Y a mí me viene bárbaro ver en primer plano los tamaños y formas de las gubias. Mi maridín me las va a comprar esta semana, y como no se consigue la que vos tenés, lo mando con la explicación de cuáles necesitaría... Agradecidísima!
Que tengas un lindo fin de semana!

Me entendiste mi mal inglès? jijij! Hago el intento, pero si no me entendiste mi enredo. Te preguntaba si què otro material es similar al block para hacer el sello, te lo cuento porque averiguè por todos lados en Guatemala, pero parece què nadie tiene idea de lo que hablo.

Gracias por tù ayuda y por tan bien explicado tutorial!!!

Have a great Christmas.

Hello Geninne! Your clearly illustrated tutorial came at a perfect time as I am picking up stamping. I am certainly recommending it to readers! I would dearly recommend the book Enjoy My Handmade Life by Keiko Kuma to beginners too. xoxo

Geninne, I love your stamps, and this tutorial is great! I have a tutorial on my blog as well, which tells people which lino tips to use.

We should host a handmade stamp swap...what do you think?

What a great tutorial!

Thank you.

I do have a question though, if I want to make a stamp with a word I've written in calligraphy, how would I go about that? I think I would need to invert it, but I'm not sure I could freehand it backwards for the stamp. I tried using transfer paper but that didn't work out. Have you ever done a word stamp? How did you go about transferring it onto the block?

This floods back so many memories. I made a miniature accordion book with a stamp for each letter saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY. It got a tad frustrating at some points especially when I reversed the letters. Let's just say the last thing you want is a frustrated artist with an exacto blade and a speedball lino cutter :|

Great work Geninne! I'm so inspired again.

Thanks for all your really useful tips. I've been wanting to carve my own stamps for a while now, but have always been put off as it seemed a bit complicated, but your tutorials explain it all very clearly. Can't wait to have a go myself!
