I got new cutter knife for carving stamps yesterday.
I used to use normal cutter before and I couldn't carve well at all.
I also got some pieces of wood for stamp handle. I cut the rubber as the size of wood piece.
These are tools what I use for stamps.
Cutting board, carving knives, my new cutter knife, wood pieces and rubber piece.
At first, cut the rubber as the size of wood piece.
Then draw the design on it. I directly draw it on the rubber with thick pen.
Then I began carving from outlines.
I finished it!
I want to stamp it on cotton tape and use it as a tag for my items.
I ordered some inks for fabrics and am waiting for them.

Mai these stamps are so cute! Great work. :) Looks really fun making your own stamps. :) Have a lovely merry happy day and love to you!
Those are amazing! I especially love the sloth and cat <3
Mai, too cute.
Wow super cute!! :D
I wonder why is your rubber so thin.... xD
I love the big blocks of eraser that they sell in Japan (specially for eraser carving) where you can carve huge images :D because the erasers we have here that are good for carving are only 3cm by 2cm ><
and for transferring the image, you could draw the image with a pencil on a thin piece of paper, stick it to the rubber with scotch tape (the side that was drawn contacting the rubber) and rub really really hard so that the image gets transferred to the rubber ;) its more convenient like this than trying to write/draw backwards :D
Mai these are so cute! And you are creative! I have ordered my stamps for WhimsyLoft but it is not ready yet. I asked the shop lady to carve for me because I am afraid I will cut myself :p haha... right now I am using iron-on tags. I think your new tags are very cool!
Ohhh you are so clever Mai Ive only done this with potatoes when I was a kid!!
It's not eraser for carving, it's harder than eraser and it's difficult to copy the design like you told me. It's good way for eraser.
I've never tried big eraser for carving, but I'll get it and try it. Then if it's good for carving, I'd like to list it on my shop. It's not so expensive.
Have a good day!
I carved only some stamps and have to practice more. But it's not so difficult if you have good design knife or cutter knife and good eraser / rubber. You don't need so much items, so please try it!!!!!
These are beautiful! I love your blog!
