What You'll Need:

  • One SpeedyCut rubber pad
  • One Speedball linoleum cutter handle and blade
  • Acrylic paint in your desired colour (or use an ink pad if you’d rather)
  • Things to stamp on: art paper, craft  paper, tags—whatever you fancy!

(All of the above should be readily available at your local art supply store. You can also elect to carve your stamp into a russet potato and make a potato print if you'd rather.)


  • Using a ballpoint pen, draw or trace your design on your rubber pad.

  • Using the linoleum cutter, create your stamp by stripping away the rubber surrounding your design. When you’re done, the dog design will be raised and everything else will be in relief.
  • Apply paint to the your stamp and start stamping!
