So then I was excited because it wasn't all that difficult to do. I went to Hobby Lobby and checked out their art section. I found a good tool kit that was made by Speed ball. It was $15, but a nice lady behind me gave me her coupon. I also bought a small amount of speedy carve linoleum rubber, which is made specifically for rubber stamping. I'd like to try Mastercarve next because I've heard great things about it. I'm hoping to post a tutorial on this soon.

Here's Maddux, either helping or giving me an evil look for ignoring him while making stamps:
