#52stamps : Weeks 6 & 7

The challenge = to share at least one new stamp made by me weekly in 2018. 
We said farewell to my lovely Dad this past week. The service was on Valentine's Day and was the perfect way to honour a man who was always generous with his love and well loved by many in return. In love and memory of Dad, I decided to create some heart stamps - I only needed to carve 2 to be caught up.
I began with the inspiration of E E Cummings' beautiful poem "i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)"
This stamp was carved on the back of a stamp which you can play with to create different patterns
and I really like the 4-leaf-clover effect of stamping this heart in a round
I was then was inspired by a friend's carving of a few weeks ago to do a vertical line of hearts 
Those 2 complete my challenge of a stamp a week, but since I have a commercial heart stamp with some diagonal lines, I thought it would be fun do do one with rough horizontal bands
So now my heart stamp collection looks like this - a mix of commercial and hand carved by me ♥ 
You can see my post about the open heart stamp HERE and the triple heart HERE. I am glad to be back in the studio and sharing with you.

I'm sorry for your loss but thankful for your fond memories. You made a wonderful assortment of heart styles in your stamps. I especially like the vertical line of them.

Thanks Nancy. I definitely have great memories and the stamps were a perfect first project to remember him
