Little stamps (and a sorry ^^) again!

There it is again: I am sorry for being so quiet in my blog! I am writing this a little bit often in the last few weeks but I think every one knows the time where life and all the stuff is a little bit too much. But hopefully not for too long anymore :)

In the meantime: Some more little stamps. Or better... a little "carving" tutorial. Mostly I use cheap erasers for carving my rubber stamps. They are cheap and everywhere available :)

(Did you count how often I used the word little? ^^)

To get perfect round circles I am using a tiny cookie cutter! It is just about 2 cm...

Just press it into the rubber. That's all!

There you go!

Or you can just press the cookie cutter down a little bit and carve around the metall with a sharp knife.

And now just carve some ornaments in the circle :)

Out of the leftovers I made two little mushrooms and a little letter...

And although I didn't have much time and nerves for creating stuff over the last few weeks, there was some progress which is just not finished. I cut a lot of fabric for pincushions or needle cases, Lachafa will be back in town next week and we will make some notebooks out of old book covers. Also there are some tentacles which just need a last touch...

So if you just have a little bit more patience with me: There will be a lot of cool stuff again :)


  1. You know you have a problem when carving a stamp follows you into your dreams.
    Which is EXACTLY what happened to me last night.
    This and your post seem like a sign to finally give it a try! Love that little envelope!

  2. claire, die mandala-mäßigen sind sooo schön! ich nehme an, die stempel bei tranquilo waren inspiration? :) ich freu mich auf unsere bastelsession!

  3. These are so special! I've been thinking about trying my hand at making stamps and this was just the inspiration I needed! I never thought about using an eraser! Can't wait to try this. Thanks!

  4. What a great idea to use rubber erasers for stamps! I must give this a go... Your stamps are really cute :)

  5. Love your blog! I'd love for you to link your projects up here:
