well, i would (attempt to) carve out my logo & stamp it on anything & everything....and everyone!! :)

Virginia said...

Ooh! In desperate need of making my own stamps pronto(!), but every time I go the art/craft store, I always put off buying the supplies to do so with other necessities. My top use for this lovely set would be to make custom stamps for my line of miniature, handmade cards and accessories. Thanks for the chance to win! ;)

Kelly Ingram said...

This looks like so much fun. I would love to create some original designs to stamp onto fabric, and use in various sewing projects - bags, softies or a personalised quilt. Thanks for the offer!

Jodie said...

This is what Melanie said before I deleted her post in error (oops!!)

I think my use for this is actually very clever! I'd give it to my daughter so *she* can carve me a stamp to use with the fabric ink stamp pads and twill ribbon I just ordered! :)

Reann said...

My Man & I have just cosied up, and I'd love to make a lovey-dovey M&R stamp for marking our mail and other things we do together... it'd be great to have the stamps to personalise throw cushion trim etc too!

NicoleKane said...

hrmmmm.
i think i would probably make a card stamp too.
with 'made with love by nicole'
i'll have to practice lots before hand though, i'm not so good at writing backwards, let alone carving backwards.

Kylie B said...

Oh wow this is such a wonderful give-away!

I would use it to make personal Thank-you Cards for my customers, so I would have "Thank-you" and maybe a little Love Heart.
:)

Rie said...

Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me...

BTW that's also what I'd attempt to carve on my stamps! I'd also try to carve Hate Me... and Love All

I say attempt to carve cos, well let's face it, I'm no artist!

KerriAnn said...

I keep looking at the stamping things and thinking I'd love to have a go but so far haven't tried!! As to what I'd carve, I'm not sure as yet! Maybe something which symbolises our family and I can use on envelopes when sending out snail mail!! :-)

So I'd love the opportunity to win!! - Kerri-Ann (SS)

jane l said...

this kit looks great,i have only just become interested in stamps lately..i have bought some for my daughter but never thought of making your own...i would make a bird or owl stamp to use on swing tags as well as the twill i ordered...

Anna said...

I am inspired by these 'envelopes'
http://simple-green-frugal-co-op.blogspot.com/search/label/Budgeting
Imagine the things you could label and stamp! I'd love to design some of my own, maybe a special one each for my sons - their clothes, bags,whatever I make them!

Tina Angel said...

hi Jodie, I'd leave my mark on my handmade goodies with the stamp kit...my quality has improved and people are asking where i bought things from, when i say 'i made it' they are shocked, the stamp on twill tape as you suggest would prove it's come from me!!! Love your blog, AND newsletter...Tina

Little Munchkins said...

I used to create my own stamps when I was in high school using erasers. To have a proper set would be awesome!

Melanie said...

My crazy morning idea (not a lot of sleep!) was that I would love to have a shot at carving stamps of hieroglyphs for my son who has just got into exploring other languages and alphabets (he's 6, but mad for this stuff!)

Mary :) said...

I would stamp anything and everything that I could find that was stampable (is that even a word) Hey if I use the right ink it will be easier to get off than my kids stickers :)

Beach Vintage said...

I'd love to have a stamp for Beach Vintage. Maybe just a "BV" stamp. Great giveaway.

Selina said...

I would give it to my little sister. She is a great drawer and would love to win this kit!
thanks a lot!

Mum2Two said...

OOoh I didnt even know these existed. I have just started being 'creative' again after a few years in hybernation after having two little ones very close together. I have now come out of the baby haze and unfortunately have to work full time but have decided I need something for 'me' I would love to win this so I could design my own stamp to put on my creations. My children get so excited seeing Mummy be crafty and I am getting a real buzz out of it too.

Laure-iginale said...

Hello! That's a great idea for a giveaway! I would probably use mine to create a stamp for my stationery line... If I win!

Little Diva said...

I would definately use it for something to do with Little Diva Designs.... not exactly sure what though!

Megs said...

I would use it to carve out my little birdie in my logo to stamp on the back of packages and envelopes that I send out when lovely people purchase something from EdanRose.

Moira said...

I would use this stamp to carve a little family monogram to put on the backs of envelopes etc.
Love your shop.

Jaz said...

oooh...I'll carve out gorgeous little stamps for my daughter's first birthday invites - but also make sure I can use them forever more!

morgaine24 said...

I would carve a stamp for my blog knithappens24.blogspot.com vbarton24 @ gmail dot com

kooka said...

I'd love to win this stamp set - my 6 year old daughter loves designing, so she can do her designs for the stamps, and I will carve them for her, and then she can use them for making her own cards.

Tracy said...

I would use it to make thankyou gift tags for my little mans 1st bday

Joanne said...

My 10 year old has a brilliant artistic flare and has created some amazing girl figures which i can just see stamped out on some natural fibers and made in to a swing dress or a line skirt.. i didnt even know these packs existed! wow!

katef said...

Oh the stamping on twill tape is rather cool, I could make my own labels for my girls school clothes... but I have a hankering to make some kind of christmas design and stamp my own gift tags.. maybe?

Karen said...

I love giving gifts with wrapping that can be recycled so I think I would grab some twill tape and stamp it with a generic pattern such as flowers or hearts, trucks or robots and stamp away!
Then wrap up my gifts and go.

Christie Burnett said...

I used to love to linoprint but this has been harder to find either the time or the space to do since I had my DD. Hoping this kit would reinspire me to keep carving, just on a smaller scale.

Would love to make some little notecards to use as thank you's. Not thank you's for presents, just to send as little random thoughts to people I care about.

mub said...

I think I'd stamp up some cards and envelopes to match! I know, not terribly creative *L*

Jacqui said...

I'd use it to stamp onto fabric - once I'd carved it of course! I have this plan for personalised teatowels for my nearest and dearest and with Xmas closing in I need to get cracking! And carving.

Kylie said...

Would love to carve out a little logo girl that I've been working on for my blog...

Brissmiths said...

Love this prize! Would love to use it to stamp on twill to individualize for my little boy's clothing.
Susan :)

Luisa @ Dance in my garden said...

I would use it also to carve out my 'Dance in my garden' icon - a star flower....I think it would be a good personal touch to add to my tags.
Luisa

Kris said...

I would use it to create a stamp to label all my handmade goodies and I would make see about how stamping into handmade soaps would work?

rebecca said...

Well... I think I would like to carve a little bunny, with floppy ears! I think would do nicely for all the cards I send out with my orders!

Cheers!
Bec.

Aphie said...

I'd actually love to win this not for myself, but for my friend Ethan. He's a fifteen year old who's really into sewing and craft, and I've heard him say how much he'd love one of these, before. I think we should encourage younger people - especially boys - to get into sewing and handicrafts, if that's what they love.
SO I'd like to win, to give it to him as a surprise.

h. said...

I would use it to stamp the paper carry bags I use at the markets when selling my things, and also to stamp the brown paper packaging I wrap my postal orders in.
Am looking at buying a stamp kit anyway, but winning one would be such a nice thing to happen!

Talia said...

I would use it to make stamps for book covers, and for generally putting my name on stuff!!

I would love to try and do some stamping on fabric! How cute and individual! I might need a bit of practice though, and a kit to help me out!

CO'BY112 said...

Years and years ago, I used to "kill time" in school by carving designs into my erasers and using them as stamps. It's not been 24 hours since I've stumbled across this again on your blog and some others and I am itching to get into it again. Since giving birth 8 weeks ago, I have a lot of time on my hands (well, a lot more than what I am used to) and so to pass away the time when he's off in sleepyland I can't wait to start making custom made presents for my friends, family and especially for him. Whether I win one of your packs or not, I'm so excited to get going. Thanks for the inspiration!!
