The Joy of a Wood Mounted Stamp + Giveaway!

I still think nothing beats a good old fashioned wood mounted stamp. Nothing stamps as good. Nothing lasts as long. Nothing looks as cute on a shelf. Nothing compares.

So when I saw the newest stamps from Elise Blaha Cripe, I was giddy. Wood mounted stamps with clever, fabulous messages? Sold!

You are so loved.” That is one stamp I will use very often…

The wood frame is from Freckled Fawn, along with tiny wood hearts that I colored with a red Copic Marker. The background? That is the new Sunburst stamp from Impression Obsession.

Another of my favorite of Elise’s is the “P.S. I love you” stamp. Since getting it, I have stamped it on the envelope of every card I have sent. Every single one.

(Imagine it: You get a card in the mail. You are elated. You flip it over to open it. It says “P.S. I love you.” The feeling just got 5,000 times better…)

Ahhhhh… the joy of a good old fashioned wood mounted stamp. Love. Take a look at some of the other stamps Elise offers. (My other must-haves… “you’re my favorite” and “xoxo.”)

Off to put this card in the mail… from a little boy to his big sister away at college. Take care!


Giveaway time! Elise said that I could pick TWO winners… and each could win a stamp of their choice! For your chance, leave a comment here by 11:59pmEST on 10/20/13. Good luck!

(Note: Elise did not ask me to do this post. I contacted her after seeing her stamps. Turns out she is a generous gal and said I could share with you. And she is a new mom working from home… sounded familiar to me. You can read about her adventures here.)

    What a beautiful card! I love cling and clear stamps for their easy placement, but I have to agree with you that NOTHING stamps as clear and crisp as a wood mounted stamp! These are AWESOME!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  6. I am a wood stamp junkie as well, which probably isn’t smart since I live in a small space, but I LOVE them! Thanks for the chance to win one of these beauties.

    Although I love the many clear stamps available, I agree that stamping seems more consistent with my wood stamps. Love the messages on these new wood stamps.
