Undefined- Star Wars

 At the  end of the school year I have been making a tin of cards for each of my kids' teachers, decorating the tin, filling it with a stack of cards for different occasions.  I like to add a book of postage stamps on the lid with a magnet and  put it in a bag with a stack of envelopes so they have everything they need to send out the cards.

One of my boy's teacher this year is crazy about Star Wars.  He has movie nights at school and has lots of paraphernalia on his desk. He was the teacher for my other boy in the past and I had found some Star Wars designer paper then, but this time I had no luck finding anything appropriate. So Undefined again to the rescue-  it is now retired through Stampin' Up but I bought a bunch of extra carving material just for situations like this.   I found some pictures on the internet that I thought would work and printed it and used it to carve out the images.  I found the font TIE-WING on line for free and printed on whisper white CS using my printer.  I printed 4 on one sheet then cut it out then stamped the images above the sentiment.  The Yoda is stamped in Pear Pizazz with same color CS to layer the stamped piece.

Easy cards and now with my new stamps I can make many many more.  I have little stamping space so I don't mount the carved rubber on the wood blocks but they are thick enough to work without the wood.
I also carved out too much of Yoda's eyes so when I stamp it, it looks wonky.  Since Stampin' Up has coordinated everything, I just used the marker to fill in the eyes a bit and it's just fine.....
