- Design templates
- Transfer sheet
- Block with carvable rubber sides
- Wooden handle with five gouges
- Ink pad
As you might’ve guessed, I love bows, so I chose one of the bows for my first stamp! Lay the transfer paper over your design and trace with a pencil. Flip the transfer sheet (lead side down) onto the rubber block.
Rub your thumb along the transfer sheet. The pressure from your thumb should transfer the lead onto the rubber block. Transfer complete! Load the smallest gouge into the handle. It should just press right in. Use the smallest gouge to (slowly) carve around the design.
If you get going too fast, you might accidentally carve too far into your design. Once you’re a comfortable distance away from your design, start using the large gouges to clear away the excess rubber. Once you’ve trimmed the edges and cleaned it up a bit, your stamp is complete!! Isn’t it adorable?!
I’m in love with my new stamp!
