Earlier this year I picked up a new hobby that has fast become my favourite form of creating: carving stamps from eraser blocks. I didn't really plan on becoming this serious about carving, I certainly never thought I would be selling my items, but from the first time I tried the craft something really clicked for me. I decided early on not to read any tips or blogs written about carving eraser, or to look at other stamp makers' works, because I found myself getting the most enjoyment out of exploring this hobby without any outside influence. I started hash tagging my designs with #girlstampclub on instagram, and the name has stuck around.
I love drawing up my own designs, copying them onto a fresh block of eraser and figuring out how I'll carve it. I especially love when a stamp is finished and I can use it on practically anything I want. Your designs multiply endlessly. It's really cool.
So now that I've got some solid months of practice under my belt, and have had some encouragement from friends and others, I feel confident enough in my stamps to share them. So I decided to open a little etsy shop last week. It's still in the early stages, but I'm very excited to have the chance to share my items with anyone who might get some enjoyment out of them. I'm also keen to make custom designs for anyone who has an idea for a stamp they want.
You can have a little look at the shop here:
