Floral cards from our design team

Jeanette of our design team stamped the woman holding butterfly card. (click here to visit her blog)
Stamps: Holding Butterfly and asst of misc unknown stamps for the border
Cardstock: Light Green
Inks: Black and Teal
Colored with Copics

To make the border I made an oval mask and placed on card with removable tape. I stamped around the oval with my asst of stamps. The first stamping is teal and the second layer is stamped in black. I smudged some teal ink around the inside edge of the border. Then removed the mask.

I've only done this technique a couple of times. It's fun and easy to do.

YUP, more stamps for just a buck!

I just finished the Animals section by sorting the overstocks and adding them to the dollar stamp section. There are a lot of animals LOL

You can go to the animals here or all the dollar clearance stamps here.

I am about to put the bottle caps on for half price, well sort of. You used to get 10 for 99¢, but now you will get 20 for 99¢ (please note I will not sort thru to get you non scratched bottle caps; they come in a huge bag and yes they scratch each other; you get what you get and now twice the quantity for the same low price of a penny below a dollar!)

** NOTE: this is for the physical bottle stamps NOT the rubber stamps that you can stamp, cut out and put IN the bottle caps. You will see that a few of the bottle cap stamps are marked down due to overstocks.

Sorting the WORD stamps...

yup am sorting the words now, probably the most difficult group to sort, cuz I have to read them backwards on the rubber.

...late this spring/early summer we MIGHT have a sale at the store on things that are not on the web page. The physical store has been closed since Sept. of 2008 and if you see a for sale sign, don't panic, don't start spreading rumors, we may be selling the building and moving to a real house LOL. However if we sell and move before summer, there may not be a sale. We shall see :)

CowTown Stamps is not going out of biz, we are doing great online only, and our area there isn't a huge demand for a physical store. Besides, I'm in school full time with 6 classes!

So all you folks who are in Wisconsin and/or our area, you can go to the web page any time of the day or night, drop an email if you have questions and not worry about driving in the snow!

Cats sorted too, Lots of CATS in the $1.00 clearance!

Yup the cats followed the birds and there are a lot of cats now in the $1.00 unmounted section.
If you JUST ordered today and want to add to your order, give me a call on the toll free (866-STAMPS-5) and I can add to your order. Other previously placed orders cannot be added to, but hey don't forget I include FREE unmounteds (of my choice only) with every order! This helps offset the s/h cost but hey who doesn't like FREE STAMPS????? (ok once, just once in over 20 years of biz, did a woman say NO she did not want a free unmounted when I handed it to her at a stamp show--mebby she was having a bad day, but I bet everyone who is reading this would gladly take a freebie stamp when offered to them right?)

So go here to the $1.00 umounted section to see all the new cats added.

OR you could go here directly to the cats section to see all of our cats and pick some of the non-sale ones too, we have lots of fun cats!

AND!!! I did put some other stuff on the clearance item page here, check some of the prices of stuff im tired of looking at LOL (hint, some ink pads are a buck and I marked some of the clear sets down)

ATC shown above is by Jeanette of our design team (her blog here). The winged cat is ours (and its one of the dollar stamps, but not too many of them to go around!!) The hearts and music are not part of the cat stamp, Jeanette used those on her atc.

More unmounteds--Birds-- for just $1.00 each!!!

Yup I have just finished sorting all the birds in the bird category and there are a lot more that are now on the $1.00 clearance section.

Click the link and see what has flown to this great sale! Unmounteds in the $1.00 overstock section are just that, overstocks! I want my dining room table back! See, its kinda full! Nowhere to eat!

Strict limit of 2 per image, tell yer friends to get their own! LOL

The dollar stamps clearance overstock unmounteds have been updated big time!

Laurel is already doing spring cleaning and has put lots more on the dollar stamp clearance section. These are first quality, overstocks that are taking up valuable "stalls" here at CowTown 'barn'.

Why not take a peek and see what you'd like to add to your shopping cart?

There is a super strict limit of 2 per image in this category, so while you can buy for a friend, we are sorry, you cannot buy for the whole gang :) Send them to the link to see what they'd like for their stamp collection!

You can opt to get any of our 3 cushions added to your unmounteds for only 60¢ extra per stamp. The 3 cushions are: double-sided cushion (like we use on wood mounts); static cling mounting foam (same as that ez stuff you can buy); or Halos (the ve-lcro type hook n loop stuff). We will trim and cushion them for you so they are ready to use with your clear acrylic blocks or peel off the backing and plunk em on your own wood (or buy wood from us!)

If you want any of the dollar stamps mounted on wood, then ooooh bummer, they are FULL price! Save money, get more stamps by buying them either just plain old rubber (FOR A DOLLAR EACH!!!!!!), or let us do the trimming and cushioning for you for a grandious total of $1.60 per stamp!

Did we mention the are only ONE DOLLAR PER UNMOUNTED STAMP????

The dollar per unmounted is good until the inventory of that particular image is gone. We do NOT press extras to fill your order, cuz that ain't too cost effective, ya know :)

Don't wait another second! go to this link and find your dollar stamps NOW!
