For today’s Birthday Party Favor Freebie I am sharing a few stamps that I created from a magazine that was published in 1891. I loved looking through this magazine! I was thrilled when I came across an article about greeting cards. It suddenly dawned on me that the graphics *of* the greeting cards would be perfect *for* greeting cards! So, I scanned the pages, did some cropping, cutting, copying, pasting, adjusting, coloring, etc and made them into digital stamps! It is not hard to make digital stamps from vintage images, it is just VERY time consuming. Some take longer to create than others. It all depends on the condition of the original graphic. These were really easy! I was lucky that the original magazine was still in pretty good shape. Here are some pics of the scans with some notes on them to give you an idea of what I did to make these particular graphics suitable for use as focal image stamps:
Below are the Digital Stamps that I created. They are 300ppi, in both jpg and png formats. Click on each graphic for the full size version and then save the graphic to your computer.
Last, but not least, here are a couple of vintage postcards. They are 300ppi, in both jpg and png formats. Click on each graphic for the full size version and then save the graphic to your computer.
I hope you like the freebies and I hope you are enjoying our week long party! I know I am having a blast!
