First five

Here are the first five lighthouse rubber stamp designs in what will become octoberpumpkin's annual series in this topic. What you see are the original designs, not stamped images.

By midweek these along with three additional lighthouse images will be shipped away to our manufacturer to make into first-quality cushioned rubber stamps ready for market.

The copyright info will not be incorporated into the stamps themselves, but appears only on the photo illustration here.

The remaining three images will be posted here before the end of this week. Sometime during the next few weeks I will post some cardmaking and other projects using the lighthouse designs.

The lighthouses shown, left to right, represent Cape Hatteras Light NC, Brant Point Light MA, Marblehead Light OH, Yaquina Head Light OR, and Annisquam Harbor light MA.

It was fun for me to study dozens upon dozens of lighthouses and choose the ones I wanted to present first! I hope you like my choices. Feel free to suggest yours in time for our next year's set! Who knows - your fave lighthouse might be among the ones selected to immortalise on rubber stamps!

The lighthouses will be available in sets and singles, available from (see link to the right) in 6 or 7 weeks.

Thanks for coming to our preview!


  1. I am soooooooooooo excited to finally see your gorgeous artwork in the form of lighthouse stamps. And you have my 2 favs, Cape Hatteras, and Marblehead I can't wait to buy a set from Octoberpumpkin!! Please let me know when they have arrived. I'll even come and pick one up on Caudwell St. I'm so excited. Looking forward to see your examples.

  2. Hi Susiestamper! Many thanks for your kind remarks, for sure! Marblehead is my fave too, and I must say we're lucky to have such a pretty lighthouse here in the state of Ohio on our beautiful Lake Erie. It was so fun to hear from you!
