Succulent collection

I just LOVE succulent plants,
so I hand carved myself a little collection
of stamps last night.

Remember the arrangement I made
a few months ago after a visit to a local nursery?
It has grown so much since then!
I wanted to share with you a
then & now picture :)

Your handcut stamps really inspire me. Last night I even had a dream that I was carving one! I guess it's time to pull out the tools and get to work!

Thanks for sharing.

these are fabulous - succulents are a favorite of mine as well. Frost took one of my favorites - my father was ill and I didn't get it in safely. I am still hoping it will come back.

Great stamps!

And your stamps practically look lazer-cut! They're fantastic.

súper bonito, pero sepáralos, antes de que se empiecen a quitar recursos (espacio, nutrientes de la tierra, etc) y se mueran algunos!!

Wow, the plants grew a lot for only a few months! Could you create a tutorial for handcarving stamps, as that would be awsome! Thanks for the post!!!
