Step One Gather materials
- pen/sharpie/pencil to draw on your pattern
- carving tools and or exacto knife
- rubber carving block
- paper to stamp
Measure and cut the size of your stamp
( you can buy smaller blocks of rubber that dont need to be cut or pre mounted/cut rubber)
Draw out your design, for my lack of drawing and carving ability i try to avoid shading… so i keep it simple and
color in what lines i am going to carve out.
You can also reverse that and carve out all the white space…. depends on how you want your end result to look.
When your design is finished, time to cut!!
For this design i am using the small knife, just tracing the outer and inner red lines so it peels away.
When your design is all carved out, time to test it <3
whala! You’ve just made your own custom stamp.
You can mount your piece of rubber on wood or a hard surface to make sure it doesnt break or get ruined..
OR you can flip it over and make another stamp on the back! ( <- thats what i do)
Custom stamps are awesome for etsy shop owners or anyone who crafts… 100% unique hand crafted stamps are a great way to add an extra little something to your customers packages <3
