This is a very dangerous book. It makes you think you can stamp everything just like Lotta and it makes you want to purchase the things you see in the picture below and more.
Very dangerous. I knew it was dangerous when I purchased my first stamp-making kit and I knew I should be cautious when it said “Easy, Facile, Facil” right on the front of the package. I was a bit discouraged when I nearly cut myself changing the sharp cutting tools.
Then I got this incredibly cute mini coffee cup at Target and wanted to turn it into a pincushion and realized I didn’t have any fabric that would really go with it. Lookey here, I found myself a very good reason to stamp something!
I traced the design off of the mug, rubbed it onto a block and started carving. My first hand-carved stamp – fun, fun!!
