Stamps and Stamping

     Yesterday our little Odd Tuesday group got together here for a fun day of making stamps. We tried wrapping cord and elastics on cylinders, scratching/cutting into styrofoam trays, carving erasers, cutting and gluing foam onto cylinders or flat surfaces, glue gunning onto wood slabs, etc. For cylinders we had paper towel rolls, tp rolls and shampoo bottles. Eliza had a good idea to keep the cardboard tubes sturdy plus add handles, that being to stuff with rolled up newspaper, worked great.
     Above is a little sample piece I made after our get together from some test fabric of some of the stamps we'd created.
thank you to Jackie for the following photos .... she thought to bring her nice new camera!
 Aren't Jackie's carved stamps cool?!
 Testing above.... ok, they're keepers ....
One of Belinda's foam and styrofoam stamps .... beware of what glue you use, I understand some wash away when you wash your stamp!


  1. It was a fun day, thanks for hosting, Gina!

  2. What a wonderful group of ideas for making stamps; and so easy to make with very little expense! Tell the ladies thanks for sharing!

  3. These are great! I use contact adhesive which is the glue you use to repair a puncture with.


I enjoy hearing from you! If you've made your email address available I'll send an email reply. Thanks for visiting!
