Hand-Carved Stamps

Teacher: Monica Kaul

Date: Saturday May 22, 2-4pm, 1 day course

Description: Looking for the personal touch to add to your wedding invitations or thank you cards? Perhaps you needs a personalized gift for a hostess, bridesmaid, or someone else in your life? In this class Monica will teach you simple techniques for creating your own rubber stamps (from your own designs or templates provided in class). Monica will also share with you tips for turning these rubber stamps into complete gift sets – the gift that keeps on giving long after the occasion has passed.

Above is a set of Save The Date Cards announcing the couple (Sara and Chad) are "getting hitched." The theme is country western, so the initials of the bride and groom were carved into a circle that looks like a branding iron.

The stamp was used to embellish the cover of the Invitations, and for hand stamping the Thank you cards.

The rubber stamp will continue to work hard after the wedding too, for personalizing letterhead and Holiday cards.

Below is an invitation set designed for a couple getting married in Hawaii.

The Hibiscus flower was the graphic element used throughout all of the pieces.

The Hibiscus flower stamp for use on the guest book then boxed and given to the couple.

It's the perfect gift that will keep on giving and remind the couple of their special day for many years to come.

Below is a wedding invitation with Pears as the theme.

Several sets of matching note cards were created from one carved rubber stamp.

The note cards were then given to the bridesmaids and hostesses as lovely hand made gifts from the bride.
