A while ago I told you about how I made Halloween recipe postcards as a vehicle to share recipes with friends while at the same time sending a seasonal greeting. I employed the use of a rubber stamp in order to do so, which got me to thinking about all of the wonderful recipe rubber stamps that are available, and how much fun it is to use them when sending cards to foodie friends.
I have a large collection of rubber stamps that my dad helped me organize by making these wonderful shelves that are mounted on the walls of my studio. When you have as many rubber stamps as I do, trust me when I tell you that organization is the key! When I first started rubber stamping, my enthusiasm had me buying stamps willy-nilly with no real thought as to what my interests truly were. This resulted in having way too many of them (And my having to open an etsy shop to sell off the extras!). Having finally gotten a grip, I focus on those that reflect my true loves: mystery, travel, cooking, writing, and holidays.
Here is a part of my cooking collection of rubber stamps, focusing on recipe rubber stamps alone. This year I plan to rubber stamp my Christmas card envelopes with a collage of cookie recipes. It would probably be appropriate then, to design my own card to include a seasonal cocoa recipe.
Are any of you rubber stampers? If so, tell me about your collection in the comments below.
