Going Vintage on Envelopes

Ever wish there were different or more fun stamps available to use on an invitation or card? Well, just recently I discovered using vintage stamps for invitations. For some reason, I never would have thought of using a variety of vintage stamps to add character to an envelope, but the result is quite charming! I haven't actually used them myself, but seeing them everywhere on Pinterest makes me want to pull out my stamp collection from when I was a kid and put them to use!  Looking for some vintage stamps? Try ebay, etsy, and sometimes you can even find them in local gift shops.

**Of course, make sure if you purchase them that they are unused stamps

  1. Great tip about buying "unused" stamps!

    From childhood, what are some of your favorite stamps you have collected?

    1. To be honest, I can't answer that one at the moment. Unfortunately, my stamp collection is in storage! However, I am really liking the color combinations of stamps found here - http://www.etsy.com/shop/VerdeStudio. Hopefully, when I find my stamp collection I will have a lot of fun and colorful stamps!
