Playing With Stamps_Celebrate Cards

I am so hooked on making these little stamps! I accidentally broke one of my soft blocks, so I doodled a little something on it .. and made these cards for a challenge.

I didn't have enough black ribbon, so I used cardstock and vellum. The lettering on the vellum is from my printer. I use a heavier vellum, so it isn't all hung up when I try to print something.

I also don't have swirly bling, so I used stickles for the swirls.

The little beads are floral drops from the gardening section at TARGET...I colored them with some dark alcohol ink.

Hi, just found your blog and I love your handmade stamps. What is the block you talk about that you carve your stamps out of?

Hello Lee, thanks for commenting. The soft block that I'm using to carve is a soft eraser-like block. The grey blocks are mounted pieces of linoleum.

Here is a link to where I purchase:
