I’ve shared this little tidbit on the blog before but for the uninitiated I will confess it again – I am a stamp fiend. I love stamps. I have many stamps, but I’ve never carved my own. Well not until Sunday that is. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at a new product from Stampin’ Up called Undefined. It’s perfect for the times when you need a particular stamp that isn’t in your kit. Undefined lets you create your own.
Now lets get this out of the way. I’m not artistic. I’m one of those people that writes about art instead of creating art. I’m cool with that. But being artistically challenged isn’t a problem with Undefined. If you can draw a design – that’s cool, but you also have a heap of pre-designed templates that come with the kit. Just trace over the design with a pencil (I used a 6B), lay it on the rubber and rub. The design transfers to the rubber mat so you can start carving.
I must say I’m addicted to this now. It brings back memories of lino cutting in high school (except I’m a smidge more patient and waaaay less angsty these days).
