Undefined: Custom Carved Stamps

Undefined: Hand-Carved Stamps
Have you tried carving your own stamps before? I did back when I was in middle school... a very simple one - many moons ago. The Undefined stamp carving kit is not something new. Not sure why I took so long to give it a try, but I must say that I was pleasantly surprised at how simple and easy it was to carve. I made 6 stamps, it was so much fun. I think I'm hooked. 

I am a huge fan of the Nightmare before Christmas. There's a skeleton in it, go figure right?! I decided that Jack Skellington would be my first attempt at carving my OWN stamp. As I was carving it, I kept singing one of the songs from the soundtrack Nightmare Revisited by my favourite band - Rise Against "Making Christmas". I kept singing "Making Stamps, making stamps"... I know I'm weird. It is a rad song though! Can't wait until July to see them live again - 10th time!!! Eeeekkkkkk!

I just happened to make a Rise Against stamp too with their logo! It will be great for my scrapbook layouts from the concerts I've been to. For my card, I went rather simple since the STAMP is the main focus. I added a sentiment from the Just Sayin' stamp set and cut it out with the Word Bubbles Framelits Dies. I went with a Halloween inspired colour scheme, with Basic Black, and Tangelo Twist = LOVE! I used a piece of the Stacked with Love designer series paper stack - the black and white side. Another LOVE! It is a simple card, but I love it :) 

I've attached a video I found, it features the entire soundtrack. If you feel so inclined to listen?! "Making Christmas" is around 40:15. It's pretty rad, have an awesome day :)
