Carvings Monday

Hey there!

I've been into carving my own stamps for some time now.  A while back I took an online class with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer on stamp carving which was fun and got me motivated.

I am hoping to try and start a weekly or bi weekly post sharing my carved stamps and projects I make using them.  I figured I'd start with some recent carvings and because they are Halloween/Fall themed. But I do have a box of them since I've been collecting them :-)

This week I want to share these ghosts I made and the word "boo":

Here is a card I put together using it:

Again super simple but I love the face that it's entirely handmade (ok the buttons are not and are from Stampin Up).

Thanks for stopping by and stayed tuned to more of my carvings!
