Happy Friday, peoples! Anybody have big plans for Superbowl weekend? Joel and I are planning to go home for the weekend, but the weather is kind of iffy…it’s been snowing here, but as long as we can get off the mountain safely we’ll be going home 🙂 I can’t wait to see my family!
Anyway, I’ve had a couple requests for a stamp-making tutorial, so that’s what we’ve got today! What you’ll need:
- An exacto knife
- a fine-tipped permanent marker
- a large rubber eraser or piece of styrofoam. I’m using a rubber eraser, but for the mustache stamp I made a few days ago I used a small piece of foam
First, draw your design on the eraser/foam. I recommend keeping it pretty simple. My design has some intricacies that were difficult to maneuver.
Next, score around the edges of the eraser, about 1/8″ from the edge:
Now you can begin cutting out your design. I recommend tracing the outside of your design with your exacto knife, then removing just small sections until the whole design is raised:
Add whatever final touches you want, then stamp away!
The bigger and simpler the design, the easier it will be to create. Good luck, and have fun!
