This DIY stamp project was inspired by an unusual item, packaging for a chocolate candy mold. On the packaging I spotted a teeny-tiny gemstone which reminded me of a rubber stamp. Since I had all the supplies, I decided to make gemstone stamp (pictured above). This stamp would be good for gift wrap, cards, etc. Tutorial below.
Speedball Speedy Carve block - you could also use a white eraser
Speedball Lino Cutter
1. Click on image, right click, save, and print image.
2. Trace printed image with tracing paper and pencil. Place tracing paper on stamp and transfer image to stamp.
3. With lino cutter, carve out where pencil marks on the stamp. Once carved test it out with the stamp pad. If you see some edges that need to be cleaned up, you can shape it more with the lino cutter.
4. With E6000 glue, adhere the stamp to the back of a wood block.
