Creating With Vintage Postage Stamps

And in case you don't have a stamp collection of your own to raid, you could always try shopping for stamps on etsy, and I do have several sets in my store In addition to the birds, butterflies, flowers, etc that are in my store now, I will soon be adding more flowers, and christmas stamps absolutely gorgeous for special seasonal creations!
