Oriental "grab" bag of unmounteds, $32 worth for $15!

Here is another "grab bag" offer; well its not a true grab cuz you will get one of each shown here.

yup I found 3 (three) sets of oriental unmounted stamps, that are overstock, $32.00 worth, yours for just $15.00 which includes s/h if you live in the US (*outside US, you will pay actual shipping costs).

this grab is 2 large warriors, the set of 5 medium warriors and sword, a bride and groom, and 2 fish kites. each grab is the same, so if you wanted 2 grab bags of these, you would get doubles of each stamp. what you see here is what you will receive. so its not really a "grab bag" but thats what I'm calling it

this is 11 unmounted stamps only, first quality, overstocks. Paypal only, these are NOT on our web page, just email me ( to get a set.

An awesome card of one of our churches...

This is one of CowTown's awesome stamps - Church, front view. I stamped it in Versamark ink, and embossed it with antique linen powder.

For my sponging, I used antique linen distress ink to keep with the vintage look. I added some flowers and a couple pieces of ribbon, and considered this one done.

I cannot say enough about the distress embossing powders - they are so cool! The texture is still grainy, and it really looks weathered. If you don't have any - get some! The colors coordinate with all of the Tim Holtz inks !! Stamped by Taylor.

Angelina fibers cards by Vicki

Vicki recently did an awesome angelina fibers tutorial on her blog. Here are 2 cards she did with our stamps and the angelina we sell.

One of our new doxie stamps, Shelly is used in the top card, with a background of our small dog paw print, and a layer of angelina fibers under the stamped image. Our thinking of you script stamp finishes off this card.

Cup of flowers stamp has been embossed onto the angelina fibers by using an iron. See Vicki's blog for the how to's. The fibers are acid free and made of spun polyester. Soft and luxurious and soo pretty!

Face by Jeanette

An awesome face card by Jeanette of our design team (her blog here) using our woman's face stamp.
Jeanette shared this with me, "I'm attaching a card that I made using a parchment curl frame.  The face stamp is from

my very first order from you.  And, you'll see the lovely shear ribbon.  I stamped the face using Distress Tea Dye and colored with colored pencil.

To make the parchment frame I tore a piece of parchment wrap to size and tore the edge in strips.  Dampen and wrap around a pencil, etc., gently remove so as not to disturb the curl and let dry.  Easy Peasy!!!  The background paper is from a medival theme mat stack."

Gold digger card by Vicki

Vicki of our design team (her blog here) did this fun card using our shovel stamp and some new leaf ribbon that I hope to get on the web page soon.

Fathers Day card by Denise

Here is a great card our design team member Denise (her blog here) did using our new doxie fishing from the boat
