My stamping adventures

tea anyone?

stamps used:  tea cups/pots hand carved by me, teabag paper by Stampington&Co., time for tea by Stampassions, if you are Stampourri!
I had fun with these hand carved images that I carved years ago and decided to pull them out to play.  I pulled them out for two reasons ... 1. I saw a canvas painting that looked similar to my carvings.  
2.  I wanted to make a bunch of cards to share with a family member for a thank you gift.
I went to town and think I made almost 20 cards and postcards.  They are simple designs but very satisfying because I carved the main images and it's fun to create with something you did from start to finish. I used a variety of ink pads from Adirondack to Stampin'Up.  Basically any inks work with stamps you carve so go for it.  Now it's time to get out your carving rubber and make some stamps!  and if you do please leave me a comment so I can see what you created.


  1. Wow! You carved these?!! Girl you have talent! As a coffee aficionado I give these cards two thumbs way up!

    1. Becca, thank you so much. I do like to carve an image every once in a while but I only do simple drawing but it is still fun.


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and leaving a comment. It's always nice hearing from you.
