It seems like it has been a while since I have posted some of my stamps, so I wanted to share a couple of recent sets I've done. Both of these sets were for photographers who were looking to fancy up their packaging for sending prints and CDs to their clients. I made address stamps for both of them, but for privacy, they are not shown here.

I think the "Please do not bend, photos enclosed" is my favorite stamp because I am getting a lot better at teeny letters Tongue



The little circle is a logo... it is supposed to be a sand dollar with the initials "CRG"



And all wrapped up:



And the other set:


(I had to get my husband to cut that little piece of wood before I glued the stamp to its mount... just ignore the little extra bit ;P)

They are all beautiful, but I also favor the "Please do not bend" stamp quite a bit. Also love the kraft paper with hearts you used for wrapping.  Very pretty sets and so impressive you made them yourself!

Great stamps.
The lines are so thin and the designs tiny, does it ever happen you cut were you don't want and you have to do it again?

These are not only fun but clearly very functional for your business! I'm sure they will get a lot of use. I love the cameras you carved Smiley. So cute!

 Thanks everyone! Yes, I have had to remake stamps on occasion because I cut too close... I really should make a set  for my  own packages, but I always get too busy with orders and swaps (that isn't a complaint though Wink ). I use to hate doing tiny letters but after trying done new styles on the don't bend stamp, I'm opening my mind a bit.
