Here is India's November 5, 2012 two-stamp set (Sc #s 2602-3) commemorating Deepavali Hindu Festival of Lights and Hanukkah Jewish Festival of Lights. This was a joint issue with Israel; that very similar set is Israel Scott #s 1956-7.

On November 6, 1972 Sweden issued a one-pane, ten-stamp Christmas booklet of two designs based on children's art. Both stamps are 45 ore values. One of stamps (Facit #793) shows then 11-year old Jenny Wikstrom's work featuring Christmas candles.

On June 6, 1969 Sweden commemorated the birth centenary of painter, author, Sufi and native son Ivan Agueli (1869-1917) by issuing a souvenir sheet with six stamps depicting some of his paintings. The largest of the stamps (Facit #658) from this souvenir sheet shows his 1895 work Stockholm View.

Heart warming stamp set made with full of love for postal service - thank you, bookbndrbob, I have another set from Berlin but not aware of this one.

And the vintage die-cut advert... beautiful ephemera! As an ephemerist (as well as a philatelist), I adore those. If you collect them too, this Ephemera Society might be of your interest..? Below linked article has a few die-cut commercial cards.

On June 20, 1952 Berlin issued a three-stamp set commemorating Pre-Olympic Festival Days. The three values are of identical design, but printed in colors commensurate with their intended postal usage. Here is the 20 (pf) value of this set.
