Our New Range of Christmas Stamps has Just Landed...

25 October, 2015

It's been a busy few weeks at Noolibird HQ but finally I'm pleased to announce our New Range of Christmas Stamps is here! 

The lino-cut designs in particular are very time consuming to create but I'm pleased with how they have evolved and added a new look and feel to the range. I really hope you enjoy using them to make your own wonderful festive creations again this year and would love to see how you get on!

almost there... New 2015 Christmas Rubber Stamp Design

09 September, 2015

Almost finished a new lino cut for Christmas. I had not attempted a nativity scene yet, so I decided it had to be done. I'm always a bit nervous of depicting people, animals and pattern are much more my comfort zone. A nice big piece of Japanese lino is a good challenge and quite therapeutic really.

I start by sketching it out on paper then I transferred it to the lino using carbon paper. When the lino cutting is all complete I will do a black and white print, scan the print and make it into a negative so it can be made into stamps. Its always a bit of trial and error, as per usual I have crammed a bit to much fine detail into this design but with a bit of adjustment in photoshop I can make sure it will work well as a stamp design.
