  28. I just got back into carving stamps after trying it once a long time ago. Could really use a lesson to learn the proper way to carve that soft material. Many years ago I carved linoleum and it is very different to work with so I’m making mistakes and getting rough edges. Don’t know if it’s me or the tools. I couldn’t find my old linoleum cutters so I bought a new set. Winning your DVD would really help me to improve my technique. Love the images you show in your blog.

  29. I just love your style. I was at the course in Charlotte with a friend of mine and you started the day out just grandly:-) Hope you will be coming back to Charlotte.

  30. All this goodness in one place. You know how to thrill a girl’s morning more than fresh coffee! Thanks so much! Love your books btw….

  31. Love love love your first ywo books and looking forward to the next one that is for sure! Had a blast meeting you and getting to learn from you in person at the Art Journal live event in Charlotte last year!

  32. So happy for you Pam and it would be an honor to be the winner of such a fun prize. Nice to have you back.

  33. Congratulations on book Number 3! What a generous giveaway. I have my fingers crossed, Linoleum Block Carving is a technique I really want to learn. Best of luck to everyone, but I really hope I win.

  34. thank you for this oppotunity for a give away. i already am in the possesion of your two books and i’d love to continue with you on stampcarving and more journaling!

  35. Dear Pam I’m from Italy but I know your work because I love your style and I bought all your books and lessons ! I’m very proud to have this opportunity and I hope to be lucky…anyway I’m happy to tell you! LOL

  36. Well, talk about a short walk down Memory Lane! I remember doing linoleum carving in 6th grade art class with my art teacher Mr. Shepherd. I was (as is still true today) overly ambitious and tried to do a large vase of flowers. That’s when I got a good lesson on negative space. That was 45 years ago!! Thanks for jogging my memory, Pam!

  37. Like everyone above, I am thrilled by the prospect of winning this prize. I attempted lino cutting long ago, practically ending my musical career with a quick slip of the blade. Obviously, there is much to learn about safely doing this wonderful art form.

  38. Oh Pam, this would be wonderful to win! Love your art and would love to win both dvd’s and you new book! What a giveaway!

  39. Such a generous giveaway! I’m excited about your new book. 🙂 “If” I don’t win, I’m going to have to buy the DVD. I love your stamps and would like to give carving my own a try.

  40. Dear Pam,

  47. Thanks, Pam, for the possibility of possibly winning one of your DVDs. If I win it, I promise to get to work! Being on the internet takes a lot of time away from arting! 😉

  48. Wow, Pam, that’s a very generous prize! Doesn’t seem that there are many art opportunities in Springfield, MO these days…could surely use some inspiring DVDs…or, you could move back!!! Good luck with your new book, anxious to hear more about it!

  54. I have the toolsl but haven’t tried stamp carving yet . Too many irons in the fire. But you’ve inspired me to start.

  55. Wow – a three- fer! How nice! I love the book but would be happy to pass my current one off to someone else if I could get a signed copy!!! And it would be great to have the DVD for stamp carving – I do not remember as much as I should! Pick me, pick me!!!! Kristin

  56. Oh my stars, I would be so thrilled to win. This book is on my wish list. Getting this would be Christmas all over again!

  59. EEK! All of that for moi? Have been wanting the Art Live DVD and love how you carve your own stamps…need some instruction with that so I’d adore the chance to win. I always like to have your DVD’s and Books on my shelf of favorites and I so look forward to the next book. I thought that’s what you’ve been up to. Cheers.

  60. What a great idea…stamp carving… I have all the tools… now I need your video… How cool it would be to carve old photos of my family and stamp them in my art… This could be a belated birthday present….LOL… Thank for the opportunity.
