#CarveDecember

MOST RECENT

Another day, another triangle stamp. This one I designed during #carvedecember and it has a bit of a Art Deco feel to it. If you scroll across you will see a little video where I demonstrate the different patterns it can make. I particularly like the star - I think a bunch of them on kraft paper would make great Christmas gift wrap!

I can't show you what I'm working on now as its a commission for a surprise birthday present and therefore has to remain top secret. So instead I thought I'd look back to #carvedecember when I carved these amphora. This repeat pattern print is lined up by eye and hand printed onto vintage paper so it will always be ooak. Only £10.30 plus shipping, I ship worldwide, link in bio.

I will never ever tire of making patterns with stamps. I know it seems a little bit early to think about it, but #CarveDecember is coming in just a few months! What is #CarveDecember?! I'm so glad you asked: Carve a stamp every day in December and post it to instagram using the hashtag #CarveDecember. It's that easy. Even if you've never ever carved a stamp before, you can do #CarveDecember and become a stamp carving ace in no time at all. It's easier than you think!

If you are looking for stamp carving resources: YouTube has tons of free videos, I offer 2 online stamp carving classes, and I wrote a book #CarveStampPlay all about stamp carving.
.
I hope you'll join in on the stamp carving madness!

This spread in my art journal features so many of my favorite things: stenciling (the leaves), stamping (the black pattern), and a painted pattern (the white lines). Plus, there's an eye! #julielikeseyes
.
Also, thanks to #CarveDecember I always have a stash of cool hand carved stamps to use throughout the year! Seeing them in my journal always makes me happy! I'm looking forward to what this December will bring!

Day 34/💯 of #100dayproject , I will be creating 100 days of mini art journal pages. These are roughly 4x4inch pages with a mix of techniques and media. Today's features one of my #handcarvedstamp from #carvedecember , @prima_watercolor and #nuvodrops . #100daysofminiart #100daysoftheweeartmaker #artjournaleveryday #artjournal #artjournalling #mixedmediaart #mixedmedia

I turned one of my stamps I carved for #carvedecember into a repeating pattern and made a screen. You can never have to much material for collages or bookbinding, right? #kristinaschaper #amliebstenbunt #handprintedpaper #collagematerial #collagepaper #bookbindingpaper #ilovepaper #paperlove #screenprintingonpaper #screenprinting #ilovescreenprinting

Three pages from the current journal collaboration with some other @getmessyartjournal artists 🌺 this one belongs to @nullsie ... using my #the100dayproject illustrations and #carvedecember stamps throughout #visualjournal #getmessyartjournal #artcollaboration #artcommunity #artfriendsarethebestfriends

My favorite color!!! And I sure hope I can make it back to that sea breeze again someday...at least I can always dream about it 😉
Started with a gel-printed background and crashed some stash...

😉 Happy Weekend❣❣❣

I'm finding that I like to make my cards at night, then sleep on the idea and finish them up in the mornings. My challenge is to try to use the prompts, as I find that they cause me to stretch. They give me the opportunity to explore new challenges, techniques and mediums. Besides relaxation,  I want to see growth...
For the making of this card, slide left 🙂

The whole time I was working on this card, the Sounds of Silence kept playing in my mind.
😉 Happy Wednesday to you!

Here are some of the stamps I carved for #carvedecember last year. This was something that I had wanted to try for a reallocated long time and even had all the tools for it! I never got around to trying until I committed to taking part in the challenge. I loved every day of it, the process, sketching, designing, the carving and stamping ... Every step was a joy ❤️ Do you have any crafts that you would love to try but don't have time for?

Carved stamp storage. I’m going to cut a piece of clear plastic packing to the size of the inside, so I can fit two layers worth of stamps in it. These are my 2017 Carve December stamps. As you can see, I didn’t get far. 😅 I’m still looking for my 2016 Carve December stamps. 😣 #rangerink #storagetin #carvedstamps #rubber stamps #carvedecember

Finished a sketchbook! 💥🕺Always fun to fill in the final pages... this book wasn’t done in chronological order... the pages with magenta and white flowers are cover ups I just did, you saw the faces I was working on last night, and the horse drawings are from today! Also some prints from #carvedecember #sketchbook #finishedsketchbook #illustration #drawing #doodleing #arteveryday #arteverydamnday

I finished the quilting for the baby quilt today. That was very quick! So I have some time before I have to go to pick up the kids. This stamp is No. 31 from #carvedecember ... 😇 Let’s see if I can finish the carving on this one today. An exercise in patience 🙂. #amliebstenbunt #handcarvedstamp #handcarvedstamps #stempel #stempelschnitzen #rubberstamps #pattern #workinprogress #stampcarving

I seem to have misplaced my stamps from 2016 Carve December.😓 Fortunately, I stamped and scanned all of them with the intention of arranging some of them into patterns. Yesterday I was getting an order ready when I thought, “Hey, let’s switch things up a bit.” So instead of wrapping it in painty deli paper, I printed my pattern on deli paper, annnnd... I. LOVE. IT! 😬 #delipaper #diywrappingpaper #patterndesign #ihopeifindmystamps #carvedecember2016 #carvedecember

El mismo timbrito pero ahora pintado con marcadores acuarelables (que no sabia que lo eran jajajjaaj), pincel de agua y tinta permanente 💕💖
Me encanta la versatilidad de los timbres!!! #acuarela #timbre #hechoamano #amomioficio #sello #carvedecember
