The helper on my side of the booth thought I was ambitious to carve the design I drew, and suggested I leave the centers of my letters like "a" and "e" filled in. I also kept hearing the others around me get praise for their work, and I was second guessing my ability to make it look good since my design wasn't real big. I didn't follow her advice though and in the end I was pretty pleased with how it came out.
It's really not too difficult to carve these stamps, eventually I'll do another one. I made a volleyball last year and have rubber left over to make something else too. I'm still brainstorming on what a good representation for Tae Kwon Do would be. This would fulfill a need for me since SU! doesn't have any martial arts stamp sets.
After finishing a carved masterpiece, we all put a sample on a board. Check out some of my favorites.
We each had specific classes in the afternoon we'd signed up for. After this we had a nice break to get dinner before heading back at 7pm for our "Stampin' Night Out."
This was a lot of fun. The SU! staff were lined up along the walkway when we approached and they welcomed us with a "wave" and a cheer when we walked through them. There was a pop corn maker
and we each had a bag at our place setting on the make-n-take tables.
Tomorrow's the last day...
