These Are a Few of my Favorite Stamps

Have you noticed that when I start something new, I can never make just one? I think it may be a habit of the creative personality—this slightly addictive trait—the impulse to create and assemble large and {slightly} out of control collections of things.

Of course, making itty bitty rubber stamps really lends itself to this impulse—I mean isn’t stamping itself about creating multiples? I have a feeling that my stamp-making frenzy will continue, but for now, here below is a look at my favorite stamps so far.

Oh, and the reason all of my stamping is in red is because that’s the only decent stamp pad I have—something I will have to correct soon. All of the stamps are pretty darn small–under 3/4 of an inch. I’ve been having a little trouble getting really solid stamp prints because it’s quite a challenge to hold onto the tiny thin pieces. I might try getting some wood to glue to the pieces and see if that solves the problem. (see my previous post about stamps for a look at some of the stamps themselves.)

Happy making!

    Oh, that is so true. I tend to want to be obsessive about something for a while until I’ve done and million and ones time. I don’t why it is so hard to take these a slice at a time.
