I love to create faux postage designs and I just watched this video


which had some great ideas on how to create them. (sorry, you will have to cut and paste)

For this swap, we will create 10 Vintage Halloween themed postage stamps for our partner. You should make a mix of different sizes and shapes. They can be slightly larger than an actually stamp but not larger than 2" x 2". Please use colors and designs that would appear to be antique or vintage style.

You base paper should be aged, distress paper - either coffee, tea, ink or watercolored to look old

Create a postage stamp edging with scissors, die cuts, or create a hand cut edge like she shows in the video.

You may use stickers only if they have no border and are vintage themed. No gloss or glitter papers.

Please add cancelation marks with postage rubber stamps if you have them.

Create 10 awesome postage stamps, all different for your partner, put them inside a notecard with the swap name, your name and a brief note for your partner.

@MamaD - thank you so much for posting the link - I still do not know how to do this - I'm very computer illiterate. I love her videos too and could listen to her talk all day!

What a fun idea! I love watching her - she cracks me up...reminds me of my mother-in-law...non-stop talker. LOL!
