A Little Kiss

You see my tag line, “Enjoy life…Stamp something & eat chocolate” on the bottom of all my blog posts as well as on my emails.  About 8 years ago I had a personalized stamp made through Stampin’ Up! that said it.  I’ve now combined that stamp with the Undefined Stamp Carving Kit and made this card.  This time I carved a Hershey’s Kiss which looks just right stamped in the Silver Encore Ink.

“Hey Mike…what day is it?”

It’s Hump Day!  I just crack up every time I see that commercial on TV.  So I decided I needed a “Hump Day” stamp.  Before you start looking through the Stampin’ Up! catalog, let me just tell you that you can’t purchase this stamp,  but you can make it just like I did.  That’s right, in case you didn’t know it, Stampin’ Up! has a kit that allows you to carve your own stamps.  The kit is called “Undefined”  It comes with a large piece of carving rubber, 2 carving tools, 4 blocks of wood, a marker, and directions.  I googled “drawing of a camel” and a photo like my stamp came up.  I printed the image, traced it onto the rubber and carved it out, and voila, I have a Hump Day Camel.
If you like this camel I’d love for you to leave me a comment below.  Oh, by the way…Happy Hump Day!
