I ordered these stamps for my roommate for her birthday. We contacted the seller fairly last minute but she was amazing and had the stamps finished and shipped within a few days! Great value, great service, and great products! I highly recommend her.

About

Why I carve custom rubber stamps

The secret 'custom carved rubber stamp sauce' is devotion to custom art and service to people, not some abstract target audience but a real live person...you! I like doing things for people :)
I started to carve about ten years ago, not realizing that it would become something that I could not put down!
Having watched my talented uncle while he was carving many years ago, I was bit by the bug and just didn't realize it!
He would carve a chunk of wood into a bird- it was so beautiful- and now I do many different kinds of carving, along with the hand carved rubber stamps
I opened my shop in Etsy about four years ago knowing I wanted to put some type of my art in my little shop....but which kind of art eluded me until just this year. I finally took the leap and just began.
So that is how Sparrow Foot Stamps came about little birdies, and I hope you enjoy my endeavors as much as I enjoy the journey of creating them~ Michelle

My artwork has been featured in Literacyhead.com, an online publication that uses art for teaching tools.

Additional policies and FAQs
FYI~~~TAKING CARE OF YOUR STAMP~~~FYI

Cleaning your Stamp:
To clean your stamp, simply rub gently with a soft soapy sponge, rinse under cool water and pat dry. The ink that I test the stamp with will stain the stamp a little, but this will not affect future stamping projects. Do NOT rub or scrub the stamp hard as this could damage it.
Do not clean with solvents (stamp cleaner) or baby wipes.

Inks:
Any common scrap booking ink will work with these rubber stamps, I often use Brilliance, Distress Inks or Stazon scrap booking ink and I think it works wonderful. Inks with solvents do not work well with the hand carved stamps and may cause a reaction. Inks with solvents in them are clearly marked on the front of the package.

Mounting your Stamp:
If you find it is too hard to use the unmounted stamp by itself, you can easily mount the stamp onto an acrylic block (also available in my shop) , using simple stick glue. The stamp may be left on there permanently or removed gently and washed as directed above. I store all of my unmounted stamps in envelopes that have been stamped with the image onto the front .


Storing your Stamp:
Store your stamp flat, or protected in an envelope and stored vertically. Do not put heavy things on top of the stamp while storing, it can cause damage to the image. Bending the stamp in half (if it is not mounted) can cause it to break. Keep away from heat.
Tap the ink pad onto the stamp several times to get even ink coverage. When using heavy or textured paper a thin sheet of craft foam under your paper gives may help give you a better print. When printing, position stamp and standing above, press firmly and evenly.
