This is Michelles cool new Crusade: make your own stamps! I really am amazed how she finds every month such refreshing & inspiring themes. I did cut myself some in the past, and I use them often. I also make them of wine corks and eraser gums (here in Europe the cutting materials are not widely available…).
The bird stamp and one of the star stamps are VERY PARTLY made by me: they are foam stickers for children, but very handy as stamps.
If I want a form to be correct, I print it out and cover the form with a lead pencil. And then press it unto your cutting surface. You see the reversed trace then.
This is how it turned out!! Made a crow too.
It is no coincidence you see an egg here. Dymphie cut one out and … I fell in LOVE… HAd to cut that out too (the word LOVE, see Julie Prichards blog for another LOVE word)… But I really had nooo idea of owls being already cut out, but visiting Julie Molinas blog she made an incredibele funny owl. So that must have been in the air from AUSTRALIA to the Netherlands! ThanX Michelle, for reminding me of making my own stamps!
