Coasters with hand carved stamps, originally uploaded by chick chick sewing.
I made these coasters over this weekend. The project is a combination of my hand carved eraser stamps and fabrics.
My 10 year old daughter joined me while I was stamping and these are her work. The word "OBAMBI" on the coaster is her grandma's nickname, and the coaster will be a gift to her grandma in Japan...
I just counted and noticed that I carved a total of eight eraser stamps last night while we watched T.V. together in our living room...
I personally like this rose and the stem ones the best...
And this one ( the one with the flower in the middle) was the most difficult to carve! Each part is so small that I accidentally carved off some of the tiny leaves off... While the hearts were pretty simple to carve.
I got most of my stamp designs from this Japanese eraser stamp carving book. I like the designs in this book because they are not only cute and simple but they are also fairly easy to carve.
Happy stamp carving and happy crafting!!
I love the stamps you've made! They look really cute:)
