Woah. I stepped away from my computer for a couple of days and, I guess, just forgot to come back. How’ve you all been?
I can’t even say that I’ve been busy with interesting craftiness, mostly just end of summer chaos.
In fact, the only thing remotely creative that I’ve managed is a set of produce stamps. For this project, the hardest part was drawing the originals; carving them was a cinch. Seriously, stamps are such a satisfying project.
Because I was going off of Stefanie's great idea and stamping on my homemade produce bags, I had to do a bit of research about how to keep the designs colorfast. I found that the ColorBox brand is permanent if you iron it (I used the medium setting for 10 seconds).
Another good thing about this brand is that it doesn’t bleed like some of the cheaper ink pads do.
And the best thing about ColorBox… they’re just so purty.
I bought mine on sale at Michael’s for 40% off and considering all the colors that it comes with, I’m super happy with the purchase. Now I’m thinking that I need to head back and pick up the earth tone set.
