Stamps (DIY)


Hi all!

Continuing with the idea of taking time to small details that make the difference in our products or gifts, today I will talk about stamps.

Stamps are perfect to give a handmade touch to our gifts or creations. We can use them in  tags, wrapping paper or even in fabrics.

We find them personalized with the logo of our shop, with our own faces or with illustrations. There are millions of illustrations to choose: from letters to nature motives such as plants or animals.

For those with less time they can buy thembut it is more interesting to make them ourselves.We can make them with everyday objects such as rubbers, corks or potatoes. 

Well, let's get to work!.

"Sofisticated" ways to DIY

There are materials specially created to make our stamps. The major difference is that the rubber seems to be more easily cut-out.There are also tools that facilitate the carving work (Linoleum Cutters). The use of a professional ink padsallow us to get a perfectamount of ink in our stamp.

At Geninne's Art Blog there is another fantastic tutorial.

For those who have less time
  • There are  acrylic stamps, the  variety of illustrations is huge. Normally they are presented in a plastic sheet where there are so many differents of them. You have just to take out the one you want to use and stick it on a special block.
