((guest post)) hand-carved stamps...from APPLES!

Happy Valentine's Day, y'all! You get a bonus Valentine's themed tutorial this week brought to you by sweet Erika from Rouge & Whimsy! 


Hi, I'm Erika from the blog and shop Rouge & Whimsy.

I love the almost rustic look of a hand-carved stamps. I've seen quite a few cute tutorials on Pinterest , but most require you get a block to carve a stamp from.

I have an even cheaper and easier way to make a handmade stamp using things you have in your kitchen right now... like a potato or apple.

Gather your supplies: knife, apple or potato, stamp pad, paper -- carve out shapes -- stamp onto paper.

It's super easy &fun! and of course, when you're done, you can always eat your remaining stamp supplies... I prefer mine with cheese. ;)

Thanks Kim for having me!


Thank YOU, Erika! I see some stationery in my future.
