Yesterday, I wrote about our new and super awesome Stampville architecture stamps. We have just been loving all the different things you can create with this open-ended stamp set! And since I haven’t been able to find any other open-ended stamp sets out there, I’ve started thinking about how to make your own stamp set.
Specifically, open-ended stamps that can be used creatively in various combinations.
So, I’ve been doing some poking around online and today, ta-da! I have gathered together a list of great ways to make your own stamp set.
