- My First Carving -

cuadro4colores
Hi!

The day is sunny and warm over here, it's a good thing because It's been quite cold and I was starting to fell a little sick, but the Spring sun brings a smile to my face and makes me feel better.

Like I mentioned in my precious email I had lots of things to show you, one of those things are my first handmade stamps!!! Yes I was brave enough to give it a try, thanks to my dear Friend LiLi that inspired me to try it after seeing her cute creations. And I came up with these a envelope mail stamp a spring leaf and a WIP mushie that I am going to show you later.

Not bad for my first try right? I am very satisfied with these and I have many more on the works right now, I also need to get the proper tools, carving blocks and ink pads because I carved these on erasers I had on my desk, is a really cool feeling and I want to try and make some with real carving rubber.

Passing to other goodies, I will continue to post all the swap parcels I've received over the past month :), I've been reading many emails asking for the photos and finally here are some of them, I hope you like them as much as I did.

These are the wonderful fabrics I got form my private swap with Jen ^_^, she's great and she sent me the cutest card :), Thanks Jen I really enjoyed our swap, can't wait to swap again!

ohh and How I wish this little Sewing Machine was real :), it would look great real size don't you think? I finally have this cute machine after a year of searching and asking for it everywhere, I made a Private swap with Shi form Brazil, they had it over there and she was kind enough to send me one along with the cutest HK candies and goodies.

Like for example this little Hello Kitty :) she's a cutie and that apple is so practical, I wish I had more for the craft studio to organize little things while working. Thanks for everything Shi ~ THANKS A BUNCH!
I added more pictures of the goodies she sent at my Flickr :)

Well It's late and I better get back to work, I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Pineapple Hello Kitty Says Bye Bye!

you've been having some cute swaps!

Great job on the carving! I've been wanting to pull out my linoleum blocks for a long time now... I just need to do it. It's so much fun!

What a cute little leaf stamp! I like leaves, and the green ink you used suits it perfectly. Do you know of a good tutorial on homemade stamps for a complete beginner? I've seen stamps that people have made, and I'm curious as to how extensive the process is.

How much do I love that pineapple Hello Kitty?! She's adorable!

thanks Kat :)
I also love that shade of green, about the tutorial i think i saw one time ago but it just had the materials you need nothing special, You don't need a tutorial to make them, I am a complete beginner and I just drew the image with a mechanical pencil on a normal eraser then with my fine exacto knives I started carving the white space, you can also use linoleum carving tools, i need to get me some of those to see how they work.

I will look around for a tutorial because I want to carve letters lol if i get good enough in the future I can make a tutorial that can be fun!

Those are some awesome stamps! I never thought of making stamps with erasers! *plants to get a boxful of them*

Also, there are Hello Kitty sewing machines out there. They're not like that one, of course, but:



I've seen them in blue, white, and pink too.
