my tuesday night in the ol' studio:|
first thing i do to get the stamps attached to the blocks is to stamp the block with the image, then seal it with some gloss medium.
then i cut apart my pre-made rubber stamp blocks, and use a super heavy duty craft glue to stick them to the matching wooden blocks. once i have done that i attach my printed package label to the box, and give the stamps 24 hours to totally set before putting them in the boxes.
i know many of you are going to ask, 'where did you get those rubber stamp blocks made?'. i used a small company called picturemystamp.com, which i liked working with a lot.
alright...end of w.i.p. tuesday night. time for relaxing then some sleeping...for tomorrow brings me back to pushing papers across a desk.
hey wait a second.... if two of your hands are in this photo then.... holy do you have opposable EARS?!?!?
sew cute! Love the stamps!
No, many of us are going to ask, "How did you take that picture with no hands?" ;)
this is an awesome post! And thanks for sharing your supplier with us. I always appreciate it when someone is willing to let others in on business/techniques they use themselves
hey there, i'm a new watcher :) i really enjoy your blog site and reading your LJ posts is really awesome too. it's nice to know there are creative crafters out there selling their merchandise and still enjoying their hobby. the bunny is so adorable. keep up the hard work. :D
you are always so generous in sharing your supplies and sources! all the tight-lipped ones should be ashame! i had no idea you DIY-ed your stamps! great work!!
thanks for sharing your process! the stamps look so cute and wonderful. i really appreciated you informing us, so many artists keep everything this big secret! oh! where are the blocks from, did you order them from the picturemystamp? also, i was looking into getting a sheet of stamps-- what is the technical name on the website for this?
