Need a little something?

Have you ever thought, "gosh, this project needs just a little bit of something..." Well, that happens to me frequently. Sometimes it ends up being an embellishment, or a punch of some kind, but sometimes I just need an itty-bitty stamp to add as a background. This very situation happened to us yesterday, as Triple T and I were designing for an upcoming LTC swap. The card and stamp just screamed for a little something...extra.

How fast can you carve a stamp that is about 1/4"?

Yep, those are the famous AQ pencils! Those tiny stamps are hard to use without something to hold onto!

OK, so I went a little overboard...we only needed one. But, they were so much fun to design and carve, I just had to do more! I'm sure I'll be able to use them at some point.

Oh, and the answer is 7 minutes. *smile*

I really like the little stamps! Very creative to use the backs of the AQ pencils... I think about that size takes me about 10 minutes... Tiny details are hard to carve! Great job! I am loving your blog! =D

Too cute! I love the idea.
I tried carving pencil erasers once, but found they were too crumbley

I love that it's on the AQ pencils! heh Awesome idea to use up scraps and I could soooooo use stamps like these.

Thank you for sharing

Tee who might take at least seven minutes to figure out how to carve so small
