I just started carving stamps a couple months ago and figured the best way to improve my skills was to join
#carvedecember where you carve a stamp every day in December. There was an optional list of prompts which I stuck to.
My carve December workbook (class by Julie Balzer) which was the only reason I think I was so successful
And here is each spread in order
This was a really fun project and I’m really happy with my stamps! I’ll definitely be doing
#carvedecember again next year. Thanks for looking!
I would never have guessed you’re a relative newbie. These look so good!
Dang! You are a natural with this skill! I love each one for its own merits and imagine they would all have lots of uses.

You really did an incredible job with each stamp, no matter how complex they got. Very good pattern placement too. Impressive work!

This is absolutely, totally wonderful !!
It was fun seeing your daily posts but seeing them all together is even better and then seeing your book is even better

Amazing collection! I love them all, and it’s cool you made the little booklet. I think December would be too hectic a month for me to try to carve a stamp every day. You really rocked it!
The booklet is a great idea! These stamps are so cute. I think my fave is the little coffee mug.
