Studio Friday: My Working Hands

Studio Friday's theme this week is My Working Hands. And boy have these hands been working this week! This is me cutting out my stamps. Not just stamps I own, but stamps I created. Drew them. Had them manufactured. My stamps. Mine. I'm mounting my personal set on EZ Mount foam so I can start making samples right away. I don't expect the wood mounts to arrive until sometime next week. I've had the rubber for over a week now. I could just explode with excitement over this project. I'm positively giddy. And it's making up for the sore spot that's forming on my index finger where it presses against the scissor handle uncomfortably.

just a suggestion- if you have some tight rubber glvoes (a bit thicker medical gloves is okay) then you can cut the portion of the gloves where the finger that hurts is and use it as some kind of protection.

And they're soooo cute.

Sometimes you just have to put your tools anywhere you can. I like the chair too. The floor can be a problem sometimes because my dog, Tipa, loves to hang around when I'm creating and to leave anything on the floor would mean one of 3 things.

1. Tipa will eat it
2. Tipa will sleep on it
3. Tipa will think it's a toy and play with it.

Although most of the time she just lays on everything else on the floor but her bedding. It's cute, but when you need to get one of the papers off the floor she just might be laying on it. And then try to get her off it.

will all your stamps be mounted? or are you selling unmounted ones also? I mostly use acrylic blocks for stamping so just wondering what your preference was.

After all that cutting, you'll need a nice little spa treatment. Cutting rubber is hard work!

Yay on your line of stamps!! Love 'em! And there's something insanely satisfying about the smell of new rubber stamps...sounds just so wrong, but I love the smell of fresh off the vulcanizer rubber!
