I think you can make the shape of the stamp frist. I think it's a good idea to make it with path or you can scan from the mail. And then transfer it to selection. Fill the selection with color, reduce the opacity to your liked. And you can make a little cut of in the edge of the stamp to make it more realistic.

or you can make your image or stamp. Then make a layer mask then make a grunge or dual brush with alot of randomness. Then spray it in the mask to create the inconsistancies usually found in a stamp. Play with the brush setting and blend modes to further the effect. let me knwo if you need a better explan.

make your stamp then make a color the very exact opposite of it (if it's white use black if it's black u se white) then take a small brush (3px depends on size of workpeice) then brush the black wherever yuo want the paper to show through then use your trusty magic wand select the opposite color then go to select> similar and then push delete and hopefully voila

Or just do work in mask mode.
