My love for illustration with a retro or mid-century feel seemingly knows no bounds, and I’m so excited that more and more illustrators are making their work available in different mediums. Ward Jenkins, a Portland based illustrator whose blog, The Ward-o-Matic, features lots of great little behind the scenes tidbits and sketches of his work, is a must see if you’re interested in illustration and the process.
I was pretty jazzed to find out that Ward has recently released a collection of holiday themed rubbers stamps with Rubber Soul. The stamps are awesome, and rubber stamps, in general, are great because they can be used in so many different types of projects. You can use stamps to create custom holiday cards, gift wrap, and gift tags. Or you can incorporate them into scrapbooking layouts and use them to embellish envelopes. The possibilities are limitless! Oh, and, of course, rubber stamps make fantastic stocking stuffers for paper crafter friends and family.
