Carve December 2023 is underway

Last year, the Carve December 2022 Challenge was a good activity for me to practice carving rubber stamps. The Carve December 2023 Challenge is underway and I'm participating again this year to brush up on my carving skills and expand my stamp collection.

Carve December 2023 stamps for the first 9 days.

Julie Fei-Fen Balzer at Balzer Designs, the host of Carve December, offers a list of daily prompts should you be at a loss for inspiration. You can use some, all, or none of the prompts and you can post daily or as you can. I'll do my best—as time, work schedule and life permits.

Carve December prompts for 2023.

Nine days into the Challenge, here are a few of my favorite prints so far.

Bird print.

Inspired by holiday botanicals, I carved these...

Poinsettia print.

Paperwhite print with watercolor.

This stamp had a real-life model for drawing the initial design. I think it turned out quite well.

Christmas cactus print.

Christmas cactus in bloom.

More stamps are in sight this month.
