Christine Adolph

New stamp line, Garden Melange, causing the drool to run down my chin in great rivulets ... available at Stampington to those with huge pools of discretionary income. The top two, the ledgers, are really the ones I respond to -- they evoke images and sensations of old words, vintage journals and accounting books, lives lived and only recalled through records someone took the time to keep, and others had the wherewithal to save and treasure. Butterflies invariably remind me of my Aunt Judy, so I always respond to the better of those stamps, too. There are more in this series, but these are my personal favorites. Christine Adolph is among my few favorites for stamp and paper designers, also. I dream of taking a workshop with her.

oh my gosh, do they come unmounted?:?????????? if so I will get us both the top on I love love love it

Veronica said...

oh wait I want the bottom one too. I think we just need to get them all

No, all their stamps are mounted, and these are $13.95 and $14.95, respectively. I just think that's too much, plus shipping! I mean, $20 for a stamp goes a long way toward other supplies, in my mind.
