Rococo Gustavian Stamps And Accessories- 70 Ideas For Your Home or Business

I never considered picking up stamps until I stumbled across the stamp collection of Anna Griffin.  If you love the elegant floral, ribbon and swag pictorials often associated with the times of Rococo romance and Swedish architecture, furniture and art, then consider adding these prints to your own home or business.  You might get inspired to make over your pantry cabinet, or hand write your name in your library book collection.  There are endless ideas that you can use with beautiful stamps.  Make your own holiday cards, stationary, or note pads around the house.  Here are 70 of the very best stamps and accessories that can work with the Gustavian Rococo theme.

1. Scrap-booking is exploded in recent years.  While there is millions of ways to dress up your family photo albums, some of the simplest designs are the most classy.  Martha Stewart uses old fashioned black and white pictures with silver labels.  Get this same look for less on the pages of your photo albums with stamps and photo corners.  If your album is on cream paper, consider cutting out labels with the same cream paper, and using decorative stamps to add captions.

2.Rose Motif – 3/4″ x 1 5/8″ x 3″ $5.96

2.Add beautiful labels to your flower pots.  Why not?  I have added lion ring pulls to my planter pots which I can hang tags, or ribbon from.  Paint your planting containers and use tags and matching stamp ink in a coordinating color. Consider adding tags with written names of the flower, and details of when to plant it, how long it takes to germinate. Be sure to use clear tape over the tags, which you can then cut to simulate the look of formal lamination.  Make every detail of your home personalized and pretty

Home Storage Identification

4. Dress up your storage boxes and pantry baskets with custom tags.  Who says you cannot paint cardboard storage boxes with flat latex paint?  I do!  Find coordinating card-stock that matches your boxes and tag your storage.

In this post “26 Ways To Organize Your Organize Your Kids Room With Shoe Boxes” we show you how easy it is to organize with banker boxes and shoe boxes for a neat and tidy storage room and garage.

5.  Use round plain sticker labels such as those from Kraft to custom stamp your own labels that you can add your beautiful handwriting to.

Small Business Use

5.  There are more small businesses that ever.  There has been an explosion of small niche businesses at antique flea markets, and antiques nationwide.  Instead of tagging your merchandise with plain tags, use it as an opportunity to brand yourself.  While people may not be able to see the face behind the product, your specialty items look ten times more expensive with beautiful packaging.
