Ever year there’s at least one Christmas gift that I don’t get done in time, and I’m forced to offer a pretty lame I O U_____. Something happens, I take on too much, whatever…and I always end up with a straggler or two. Sometimes I get to the promised gift a few weeks/months later, and sometimes they never happen (Don’t hate me, Jeff!)
These personalized stamps and card kit was just such a gift. My sister in law (who I’ll keep anonymous…hee hee, I’m super funny!) wanted personalized note cards, and I thought that even better than that would be some rad, hand carved stamps with a card kit and printing supplies. It was actually kind of cool that I did it all late though, because she helped design them, and so I know she’ll like them. We settled on three different designs, and I went to work with my carving tools and rubber carving blocks (you just need a small corner for these!)
I am so happy with how they turned out, and am actually pretty jazzed about a new technique I’ve been using for carving small words/letters (tutorial soon to follow! )
And now to announce a few winners from our Stretch Yourself giveaways! Eva from Spain is the winner of Sewaholic’s Renfrew Tee pattern, and Holly Sharp is the winner for the O + S raglan Tee pattern! I’ll be in touch with both of you soon to get you your patterns!
