Over the past couple of years, I’ve really gotten into stamps and stamping and am always on the lookout for great, new-to-me designs and designers. I discovered these awesome stamps by Ashley Goldberg on one of my recent Etsy expeditions and just had to share.

“Building” stamp sets are some of my favorites because of their versatility, and Ashley offers so many wonderful, hand drawn sets featuring organic shapes and illustrations that can be used to build custom patterns and so much more. Below are some of my favorites, and be sure to head on over to Ashely’s shop to see all of her super cool designs!
