Vintage Stamps

A little preview on what I'm working on days, after days for the last few weeks. I designed a Vintage Stamps Set for a store nationwide (to be announced soon) that will have them available for sale this fall. I designed the label with Susy's calligraphy and selected thousands of vintage stamps to get assembled in each glassine envelope. I found some amazing, engraved stamps from as early as the beginning of last century, from everywhere around the world. Fascinating! I still have more envelopes to go, I'm so lucky I have my daughter to help with the assembling. And she also tells me funny stories when we work together!

I want a set to make into a collage, a unique product and I like the label!

So colorful! I love them. They brighten up an already yellow, red, and orange autumn we're starting to have.

Each stamp is a little promise of somewhere new. I love the whimsey label too
