Finally Finished….My Hand-Carved Alphabet!

Finally Finished....My Hand-Carved Alphabet!

Taking inspiration from a post on http://balzerdesigns.typepad.com/balzer_designs/ I decided that instead of paying nearly £20 to get some fancy alphabet stamps I’d seen, I would just carve my own. So I finally finished the ‘z’ today 🙂 They are a bit rough round the edges, but that’s the beauty. I want to do some numbers next!

  1. OMGOSH… that must have been quite a job! Good fro you, i’ve thought about doing it, but I just don’t have the patience. How long did it take you?

    • I’m not going to lie….hours! But I find it quite theraputic and I ony did one or two at a time 🙂 I have loads of carving material, but I need to wait for inspiration to strike for the next stamp deign!

  2. Wow, well done, they look brilliant! I have no plans to attempt something as brave as carving my own stamps, so I am in awe.

  3. I have been considering making some of my own stamps too. Mostly flowers and such… but I thought your letters were very cool.

    • Thanks! I must say my neck hurt afterwards, but doing something like that takes a while can be very therapeutic. I did a flower stamp which came out better in clay than with ink. Can’t remember if I actually uploaded it or not 😉

  4. wow, what an adorable job you did! I bet you’ll use them for many many years.

  5. Love your alphabets!

  6. Love these! Looks like lot of work!

  7. Wow, now that is dedication! Good for you :)) They look awesome!

  8. Fabulous! They make me think of Billy Smarts Circus! Sort of ‘Big Top’ style. I’m in awe of your dedication to the job. I think I’d have probably given up at around ‘E’ and decided that I didn’t need them ‘that’ much! {insert guilty, red embarrassed face here}
