Make Your Mark With Rubber Stamps - Post Card Swap - Postmark by December 27th

Last group mail art exchange listing for 2021 !!!

(Part of my collection)

Here's an easy-peasy theme, IF you have some rubber stamps and ink pads or markers.  I hope most of you do?  

I actually started up my own rubber stamp manufacturing company in the 1980's when they were gaining popularity on the West Coast: 

Pressed the rubber sheets over metal molds and heated in a vulcanizer.  Cut and sanded the wooden handles, indexed the tops.  Set up booths at craft fairs and sold by mail order.  At that time the larger companies were advertising nationally and printing up slick catalogs.  I could not compete.  Oh well...  But I do still have some rubber stamps I hardly ever use.  Here's my chance!  And yours.

If you do not have any rubber stamps, check at a Dollar Store or craft supply store.  Also, it's okay to (very carefully) carve a design in some soft erasers with an Exacto knife.   That will result in an original design that is yours! (Check out directions on YouTubes, I found ten (10)  HOW-TO postings at first glance.)

Participants, create 1 - 4 rubber-stamped pieces of mail art in post card format to be exchanged with your swap partners. Use any background(s) and your choice of mediums but feature some rubber stamped images in your artwork.

  • If you're sending more than one PC, please insert waxed paper or parchment paper between the
  •  cards so they don't stick to each other in the
  •  envelope.
