Item details

Rubber Stamp Kokeshi Doll, hand carved. These are inspired by traditional Japanese Kokeshi wood dolls. Very detailed and charming hand carved stamp. The kimono she is wearing has a circular flower design, and ties at the top side. She has chin length hair cut into a bob. Her face has a very sweet expression. She is by tradition, very honorable.
These little rubber stamps are very adorable and I know that you will enjoy using them!

The Kokeshi word is sold separately and is available in my shop.
*I also have perfectly sized, custom cut clear acrylic backing for your stamp at a very economical price available in my shop. Just like the stamp you buy in the craft shops that come with wood backs, only this is clear and so much easier to use! Designed to fit your stamp perfectly.*

Wonderful for making unusual greeting cards.
The image is about 2 inches by 1 inch.
Thanks so much for visiting my shop :)
I also have a lot of other interesting hand carved stamps and logo's in my shop and I would love for you to take a look!

Average review
I want to use Japanese stamps in the books I am making for my grandchildren about their Japanese culture. This little stamp reflects the soft culture of Japan.

Arrived super fast. Cute packaging. Gorgeous stamp. I do wish it had the block on the back and probably would have paid more for it. Happy customer though :)

Additional policies


Cleaning your Stamp:
To clean your stamp, simply rub gently with a soft soapy sponge, rinse under cool water and pat dry. The ink that I test the stamp with will stain the stamp a little, but this will not affect future stamping projects. Do NOT rub or scrub the stamp hard as this could damage it.
Do not clean with solvents (stamp cleaner) or baby wipes.

Any common scrap booking ink will work with these rubber stamps, I often use Brilliance, Distress Inks or Stazon scrap booking ink and I think it works wonderful. Inks with solvents do not work well with the hand carved stamps and may cause a reaction. Inks with solvents in them are clearly marked on the front of the package.

Mounting your Stamp:
If you find it is too hard to use the unmounted stamp by itself, you can easily mount the stamp onto an acrylic block (also available in my shop) , using simple stick glue. The stamp may be left on there permanently or removed gently and washed as directed above. I store all of my unmounted stamps in envelopes that have been stamped with the image onto the front .

Storing your Stamp:
Store your stamp flat, or protected in an envelope and stored vertically. Do not put heavy things on top of the stamp while storing, it can cause damage to the image. Bending the stamp in half (if it is not mounted) can cause it to break. Keep away from heat.
Tap the ink pad onto the stamp several times to get even ink coverage. When using heavy or textured paper a thin sheet of craft foam under your paper gives may help give you a better print. When printing, position stamp and standing above, press firmly and evenly.
