Hello, Old Friend


I'm working on an amazing project right now using my old friend, the rubber stamp. You may know that I started L&H exclusively working in rubber stamps. I love how immediate it is. And living in NYC with stamp producers able to do same-day turnaround on custom designs, it feels even more instantly gratifying. Hand-stamping several pieces for a big wedding was a lot of work (and came with a lot of mistakes & re-dos) but for smaller runs like this project, it's super fun. Most people probably think of scrapbooking when they think of stamping - but it can have such a beautiful timeless effect. And it can be so easy for invitations or stationery. Maybe I should have a little tutorial on here for creating simple tasteful invites using stamps? Hmm. Would you be interested?

Definitely! I'd love a Liz tutorial on most any subject.

yes, please do a tutorial! I also have a question, have you ever carved your own stamps? If so, I'd love to see a discussion or tutorial on what types of material and tools to use.

Thanks!
