I Made This...

Blogtoberfest: Day 12

Inspired by fellow flyer, Deborah Velasquez and her blog post on October 4th where she shared an owl stamp that she made.

I ventured to Michael's over the weekend.

My BF is a trooper because he went with me. It was a great afternoon. I stocked up on a few supplies, found some I didn't know I needed (giggle), walked through Central Park and had lunch. Beautiful!

I carved a stamp using the flower shape that I created for my very first piece of jewelry that I made during a jewelry design and metalsmithing class that I took.

Next goal, carve more! This time leave just the petals so that they stamp, make smaller ones (this one is about 2"x2"), and of course then stamp with them. Oh, I guess I need ink, hmmm, sounds like another trip to Michael's is in order.

My end goal is to stamp my own wrapping paper so that when I ship jewelry or prints they will protected inside the shipping box wrapped in beautiful printed paper.

This was so much fun. Thank you, Deborah, for the inspiration and the encouragement. Please visit her blog and see the wonderful owl stamp that she carved by clicking here.


  1. Lori, i LOVE this stamp! I can just imagine how beautiful it's going to be on your wrapping paper when you sell on ETSY. It's kinda cool to see the stamp & then the photograph of the actual piece of jewelry in your blog header.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful post on my bird. BIG hug to you.

  2. Looks great. I so need to try this.

  3. Lori, Beautiful Job! What a great idea to use on your packaging! Very fun! :-) Kris

  4. Oh! Love this floral stamp you made! It will be a beauty when printed. Not sure how big it is but it would make a great tag as well. I love that you found supplies you didn't know you needed. My favorite kind.

    I really appreciate the link back to owl post and my blog.

    Have a great day! You sure made mine.

  5. Very nice!! Love the stamp and the packaging idea. Don't forget to show us the printed paper later;D

  6. Love that stamp, can you take me to Michaels when I visit?

  7. Lori, I love the idea of printed wrapping paper to make the gift special. The jewelry is nice too.
