What does a Treasure Box look like??? - VIP Rubber Stamp Collection

What does a Treasure Box look like???
Well for this stamp crazy girl it looks a lot like this.

 Priority Box that arrived today with 
18 VIP (Visual Image Printery) Rubber Stamps to add to my collection!

Last week, I had the great fortune to be contacted by a nice lady in California who use to own a Rubber Stamp Shop.  She informed me that she had some VIP stamps stored away which she was willing to sell, if I was interested.  Oh, yes was I interested...and they arrived today!!! Trick and Treat to me!!!

I've slowly been able to grow my VIP stamp collection one little stamp at a time over the past 5 years till I had just under a dozen VIP stamps; and now with one purchase I've added another 18 great images to my treasure trove.  

 So... Here are the great Jewels I got in my Treasure Box today.

Three Grisly Witches, just in time for Halloween
Pirate Stamps - also good for Halloween

 Doors and Architectural elements, 
including the fireplace I've been wanting for over 2 years.

Wizards and Scenic Water Features to add to the mix

And one Giant Dragon
This guy is 6 x 5 inches tall

These new additions get to join my current VIP images of...

These are the VIP Wizards I already had

These are the VIP architectural stamps I already had.

A year ago I purchased the large troll from eBay but the wood had no maker listed so he has been a mystery for me; then this week I purchased this smaller troll off eBay who is marked VIP 1994.  I was thrilled to positively ID my large troll as a VIP image and now I have 2 more in my collection .

The larger troll measures 4 1/2 x 3 3/4 inches
The smaller troll measures 2 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches
I like having similar images in various sizes since you never know
what size your stamping project my require.

And yes, I'm still adding to my VIP collection.  
These stamps just make me smile with all their wacky stamping possibilities.

Grins and Giggles,


  1. Wow what great stamps! I think I'm falling in love...

    1. Hey Crea S - I have to admit, I've not stamped in a long time but these are still some of my favorite images. Thanks for letting me know you like them too.
