Make a Stamp

Resource: Esty: How-Tuesday

Are you looking for an easy way to make your own stamp? Handmade stamps are the perfect addition to scrapbooking, greeting cards, packages and more. Belgian Etsy seller Mitsy, aka ArtMind, would love to show you how to get started! First, gather your tools and materials. Here’s what you’ll need:



Step 1: Trace the design with a pencil.


Step 2: Flip the pencil drawing over and rub it onto the gum.


Step 3: Trace the pencil outline on your block with a Sharpie marker.

Step 4: Cut away all of the gum, except for the black outlines.


Step 5: Put some ink on the stamp and press onto paper.


Step 6: You can clearly see that the stamp needs to be cut more. All of the black marks can be cut away. You can either use the lino cutters for this or a little scalpel knife.


Step 7: Repeat the process of stamping again to see if it looks better after cutting away some more gum.

Now you can glue your soft stamp to a block of wood or acrylic and stamp away!
