Carving my Own stamps

So thanks to Stampin' Up! introducing a new stamp set now you can carve your own stamps if you are so inclined. After all who doesn't have a stamp that they wish was out there but you can't seem to find it anywhere? Yesterday I got my carving kit out and carved my first stamp. It was definitely a little more involved that I recommend for a first time carver but I'm still super happy with how it turned out!

If you are curious and want to see what "Undefined" is all about check out Stampin' Up!s Youtube video: Undefined - Stampin Up!

I didn't take pictures of all the steps but here it is after I finished carving out the image in the rubber:
Once this step is completed you take your craft and rubber scissors and cut around the image
You can see the rubber image and what the image looks like stamped as well. (sorry for it being sideways but blogger wouldn't cooperate)

 How do you like the idea of creating your own stamps? Head on over to my website and order yours today:  -
