balzerdesigns Merry Christmas! In honor of the fact that I'm getting on an #airplane today: two airplane #stamps! I couldn't decide which way to carve the stamp -- shadow or outline -- so I did both! #CarveDecember #stampcarving #whatjuliemade 2d

balzerdesigns Look at that teeny tiny pile of rubber. It doesn't take a lot of carving away to make an awesome #stamp! #CarveDecember #stampcarving #pattern #whatjuliemade 3d

balzerdesigns With a pair of scissors, it's easy to transform a regular old paper leaf into a holiday leaf! Now, can anyone tell me: is that mistletoe or holly? And what's the difference?! #craft #whatjuliemade #scanncut #christmascard 3d
  •   mthimjon So cute! Love everything you do! 3d
  •   babybjo Looks more like a pine bough... 3d
  •   babybjo It is still pretty though 3d
  •   rebeccahoot Super cute idea!! I say it looks like a Holly leaf they are pointed and mistletoe is a more rounded leaf with green balls~ at least here in Texas 3d
  •   blockpartyintl It's lovely! 3d
  •   bylinn54 Looks more like holly. Mistletoe has slender long oval leaves. It grows up in the crook of old trees. Has white berries. Holly is a bush with red berries. 3d
  •   cindylou3016 Mistletoe is actually a fungus that grows in oak trees out her in ca holly is a bush with very sharp points and of course red berries 3d

balzerdesigns 'Tis the season for holiday tipping! I used today's #CarveDecember stamp to decorate these small envelopes. I'll put cash inside and hand them out to all the good folks who work in my apartment building. #spreadthecheer #whatjuliemade 3d

balzerdesigns In all the years I've lived in #nyc I've never had a #ChristmasTree. I usually head out of town for the holidays and dragging a tree up to my apartment seemed like an enormous drag (pun intended ). Plus, I'm Jewish. But this year I found a place that delivered (thanks, @nyctrees ) and so I decided to go for it. I had overly ambitious plans to make hundreds of ornaments. In the end, I made a few and strung some lights and it makes me happy every time I walk past it. #ChristmasSpirit 3d
  •   blockpartyintl I' m sure you're super excited about this. It looks great. Enjoy! 3d
  •   9isfine Enjoy! 3d
  •   kellycreates I actually hate decorating. But Christmas trees are funny like that and I love having it. 3d
  •   kimmierose22 I cut off some of the branches (small cuttings) put them in a pot with orange slices, whole cloves, & cinnamon sticks and simmer the pot and it makes the whole house smell like the holidays. 3d

balzerdesigns What a delight to discover that my new stamp (joy) fits together perfectly with two older stamps (the interlocking heart & circle)! #CarveDecember #stampcarving #joy #whatjuliemade 4d

balzerdesigns I began carving stamps out of necessity: I wanted certain designs that didn't exist. And then it became an addiction. A challenge. What can I do? But I still carve out of necessity. I made this card. It needed a sentiment. Nothing I had on hand worked, so I made my own! Bonus: Today's #stamp took less than two-minutes to make and it was made from a sliver of garbage rubber! #Stampcarving is an infinitely practical art form. #CarveDecember #whatjuliemade #dayofthedead #skull #balzerdesignsstencils #tcwstencils #cha2015 #balzerbits 6d
