my tuesday night in the ol' studio:

Stamppackaging1

Stamppackaging2

Stamppackaging3
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.

Stamppackaging4

Stamppackaging5

Stamppackaging6

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.

No, many of us are going to ask, "How did you take that picture with no hands?" ;)

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?

thanks!
