Wood Block Stamps

Ever since the day I read this post about wood block stamps on Design*Sponge, I have wanted to buy some and try it.  Yesterday, I was in Santa Fe with my husband and my in-laws, and I found these amazing wood block stamps.  I like to imagine that they were used for years in some exotic land to make beautiful and elaborate textiles.  I didn't get the story behind them, but maybe I'll ask the next time I go back.
I have a lot of projects going on right now, so I don't know when I'll find time to experiment with my wood blocks.  I am really excited to see what I can make with them.  Do you have any ideas or suggestions?

Happy Monday!


  1. Where did you find these? My husband & I also spent the day in Santa Fe yesterday!

  2. Very cool! They would look great stamped on anything...maybe a market style bag?
