Carving pumpkins, Pumpkin Stamps -- That Is

If you have been following me on Instagram

Well, then yay you! And you have seen my pumpkin drawings and doodles posted ...

Then I posted this...

The answer was obvious.  

You know me I'm a stamping kinda girl. I thought 19 carved pumpkins (stamps) would make a bountiful pumpkin patch or two.

Can you tell I had a tremendous amount of fun?

Below all 19 are stamped here at least twice, some more.

I really appreciate you stopping by! 
Have a great day.

Hand Carved Stamps, Tiny Stamps, Post No. 5

Here we are, my last post in a series of five about carving tiny stamps with my leftover rubber remnants.As I said in post no. 2, I still have a few more tiny stamps that I didn't use. 

But I wouldn't want to overdo it. ;)

With more tiny stamps to come.

Hand Carved Stamps, Tiny Stamps, Post No.4

Here we go with Post no. 4 sharing my Tiny Stamps.

When I was stamping these out I was doing it rather quickly and grabbed the red ink for the bulls eye stamp. 

I know! It's obvious what it reminds us all of. But I had no intention of starting over. 

I see so many creative opportunities with these little cuties.

 I'm sure you do too.

Thanks for stopping by and please share with any of your stamping friends.

Hand Carved Stamps, Tiny Stamps Post No. 2

After my last blog I knew I had more Tiny Stamps to share, besides when you title a post with No.1 you must deliver a No.2 

Okay, and I was thinking possibly a No.3

But when I got to stamping, well let's just say that I stopped stamping full pages after I finished No.5. 

Yes, I had more stamps left over, probably about another page worth. I was satisfied with my pages and I was just plum done.

Here for you today, because you stopped by is

Tiny Stamps

Thanks so much for stopping by. 

Stay tuned for the Tiny Stamps Post No.3-5

Hand Carved Stamps Tiny Stamps Post No.1

It might be a bit obvious to those who have been visiting here for awhile that I do like to utilize all of the rubber from any sheet I ever carve from. Maybe it's the culinary training and years in food service that I have the 'waste not, want not' consciousness. Being convinced to throw away or let go down the drain as little product as possible. It's called getting a high yield from your goods. So I guess that carries over into my art making world as well.

After transferring my image from tracing paper onto the rubber in the best fitting space, I cut it away from the larger piece. 

There are always scraps from this process and hold on to all the bits and pieces from the rubber I cut away.

Then I transform them into tiny stamps.

This is simply a sampling.

Some get mounted on wood, some get mounted on thick foam, some get mounted on cork and some stay unmounted. 

I think they are so much better looking on paper than as a stamp, but that's just me.

Look at this little unmounted guy, even though it's little it still can make a great impression. Forgive the pun.

So now since this post is titled Tiny Stamps Post No.1 , I guess that means I have to publish a Post No.2.

Thanks for stopping by and check back for more of my Tiny Stamps
