STAMPS of Postage and Rubber

I really need to clean off my computer desk.

I am bad about leaving scraps around,

because I don't have the heart to throw them out.


But, the other day instead of cleaning,
I took a couple scraps,

in this case ledger paper,
and started arranging them on junk postcards.

I pulled out a couple rubber stamps,

literally just two,

and made some art to mail.

Ta-da!
Italian ticket stub, postage and Madonna/ saint from an envelope of
goodies sent to me by Celita.
Grazie!

Et voila'!



I personally don't have a problem with mixing Polish with U.S. postage,
or Australian with U. S.,

since it's all about color, size and design flow.

These postage stamps are not even that old.
You don't need antique paper to make cool collages.
Need vintage postage?
Find it here.

Want a postcard RAK in the mail?

Email me your address.

I have an email button on my profile page.

The first three people to respond will get one of the above cards!

I need your address though.

Simply saying, "send one to me, please" won't get one to you.

I am still sitting on HOPE necklaces needing addresses...

:)


3:20pm- Two postcards have been claimed (one already mailed!)

One postcard is still available.

I will do this again in the near future, so if you missed out this time, never fear,
there will be other opportunities for claiming RAKs in your mail.

3-3-10

Cards went to Sarah, Jeanie, (who got her email working again ;) and Laura.

So glad you weren't shy and just went for it!

What a great way to repurpose used postage stamps (that I have several of...okay, lots of).

I'm running to your contact, hoping I'm in the top three! These really are lovely!

Jeanie said...

Oops. I won't be one of the three because I forgot our email program is down! Boo hoo! I'll try as soon as it's up.

Laura said...

I just found your blog for the first time. Great postcards!! I think I'm too late for one, but will try anyway.

Nice cards. I think we need to do something with the junk mail we get too! It would be at least an Ed McMann size post card! lol

oh, dear, and I'm waiting for my Hope necklace in vain...
I sent you my address in February and I did it again just today. let me know if you got it.

btw, I love the story of your daughter creation (a pretty good assemblage) and I shivered. I'm hiding my art supplies from my son (he's 18 months old) but I know a day like that must come...sigh...
