Hello! It has been awhile since I worked with rubber-stamps, so I’m double excited to show you my latest project!

I made my custom “closed eye” rubber-stamp at a workshop last April. The teacher was  Christine Schmidt, principal at Yellow Owl Workshop, a stationery shop that specializes in rubber-stamps with the most creative designs. They also have an amazing rubber-stamp carving kit I can’t wait to purchase.

I won’t go into the nitty-gritty of carving the rubber, but the concept is fairly simple once you have the tools necessary to make your stamps.

  1. First, you will carve your design out of rubber with a special carving tool.
  2. Choose a pigment ink and dab the ink on to the rubber-stamp.
  3. Picture # 3 shows you how I dabbed the ink onto my stamp.
  4. Press firmly on the rubber-stamp so you get a crisp image.
