My Favorite Crafty Things 2019: STAMPS

Welcome to My Favorite Crafty Things 2019! It’s here!!!

Over the next several weeks, I will be sharing my favorite crafty products of 2019. Each post will have a different topic with a video. If you haven’t checked out THIS video, please do so – it explains how the series works.

I have lots to share, including big giveaways (see below) and even store discounts (some are exclusive!) from several of my favorite stores. I will be updating this list if more offers come in…

Let’s dive in! Today I am focusing on stamps.

[Warning: This video is LONG. You can instead just check out the stamps below. All products are linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails. Affiliate links may be used at no cost to you. Please note that I purchased most of the products in this post personally, but not all. Regardless, the decision to include them in this list was my own. I truly like these products and companies.

  1. fantastic video – love them all and WANT them all – lol!!!
    My favorite would have to be the gina k crazy daisy set with the dies and stencil combo – would be awesome to get this one!

  2. So many great stamp options! Thank you for reminding me about some of the items I already own and I look forward to purchasing some of the other stamp sets you featured.

  3. I find that I love anything that Altenew comes up with. I’ve added their leafy cluster stamp and die to my wish list. I also liked the Impression Obsession Sketched Palm Leaves cling stamp.
    Many thanks to you for showcasing so many products from so many companies.

  4. The Kitchen Sink Tree Stamps are amazing! It is by far the most realistic stamp that I have seen! But of the available stamps, my favorite is the Unity Stamps sentiments. I like the boldness and size– a simple choice for a creative background!

  5. Wow! I’m just getting into card making, and I love your videos! They are so very helpful. Thank you for the time and effort you put into helping all of us!

  6. I love so many of these, but I just ordered MFT’s Birth-YAY stamp set today on sale cause I *had* to have it and I’ve waited for it to be on sale and still in stock! So excited, can’t wait to color it up!!!

  7. I think the Hero Arts Gina K Friendship Bloom stamp is my favorite. I live the flower on the stamps. I love most of her items and they seems to be of good quality. Thanks for sharing all of your favorite things. I have already sent my cards to Ricky.

  8. I love the way you use background stamps in your videos. The stamp I find most appealing is the Simon Says Stamp Leaves and Berries. It’s so beautiful and would be such fun to color.

  9. My favorite is the Simon Says Stamp All the Thanks stamp set. I always need thank you cards and I think it’s really important to let people know how much they are appreciated.

  10. Love, Love the Gina K. Friendship Blooms. I couldn’t wait just bought it! Tailored Espressions Simple Stripes stamps and die are so convenient and what a selection of sentiments – every set is so useful!

  11. Oh! You are funny! Giving so many lovely choices then saying, “Pick just one!” Lol!! My newest favorite company is Altenew, so I suppose I’d be thrilled with any of their options. Thank you for sharing your talents with us!!

  12. So many cool stamps, it I have to give my favorite to the Taylor’s expressions simple strip stamps and dies. So handy! Lately it seems there are more time saving stamps which is great. Happy holidays!

  13. My favourite stamp set has to be the GKD Crazy Daisy florals. I have this set and have made many cards with it. I especially love pairing it up with the coordinating stencil to add nuvo glimmer paste.

  14. My favorite stamp from this list, that I own and use all of the time, is Simon Says Stamp word mix stamps and die! They are so useful, and have been finding their way onto tons of my cards lately. My favorite stamp that I don’t own yet, but is definately on my wishlist, is Concord & 9th Kindness Blooms turnabout.

  15. Hooray, hooray, hooray! I love this series! Lots and lots to love. I don’t know if I can choose a favorite, but one that stood out to me is Flora & Fauna’s Everyday Word Party Part 2….just love the type…LOVE it!

  16. Hi Jennifer, It’s so difficult to choose one of anything as my favorite. I would have to choose the Mama Elephant Mii Everyday Messages as my favorite. The size is perfect to tuck away anywhere on my card. Thanks for your videos. You do such beautiful work!

  17. I love stamps and am happy to see a few unique designs that just speak to me. Concord and 9th’s Mail Drop set is one that would be fun to use on my envelopes.

  18. Hard to pick one because they were all so great. If i had to pick one it would have to be Simon Says Stamp All the Thanks set – many uses with that one.

  19. There are so many beautiful stamp sets that it’s hard to choose but the palm leaves background by Impression Obsession would be a very versatile one for so many occasions.

  20. I fell in love with the Honey Bee Stamps Anchors The Soul set the first time I saw it, it was definitely a “must have” for me.

  21. What fun! Thank you for putting this together! Favorite absolutely is Unity Stamp Co. SAY IT BIG! I own it and love it!

  22. Thank you so much for doing these videos. I truly appreciate the time you took to put these together for us. I saw some stamps and companies I hadn’t seen before, which is awesome. I loved the background stamps, those little envelopes were adorable and the splatter stamp is a great idea. But I also absolutely love the Altenew layering stamps, they make creating beautifully colored flowers so easy.

  23. How do I pick just one??? LOL First, I absolutely LOVE your crafty favorite series every year…you are such a blessing and I am so very grateful for YOU!! Ok…I will have to let you know that I adore several of the sets that you shared…I have been eyeing the Altenew Dotted Foliage Bundle since you introduced us to it and , also, the Leaf Clusters Bundle. I LOVE the collaboration that you did with Gina K with the Love and Kindness stamp set to benefit our friends in the Bahamas. You both have such big hearts …ok, one more LOL Gina’s set for Hero Arts 45th Anniversary, Friendship Blooms…Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, dear one!!

  24. So many great stamps featured, but I confess that I have a special fondness for everything from Purple Onion Design! 🙂 I really want to try their new mounting stamp. The sentiment blurbs set is super cute!

  25. I like the Ink Blot Stripes background stamp best. I also like the Tim Holtz Foliage stamp and have this one in my stash. I agree with you that it is a great find!

  26. Jennifer, you are such a blessing to the stamp community -thank you so much for doing this every year! I’m really loving the Taylored Expressions Simple Strips sentiments. Very clever!

  27. I LOVE layering stamps so my favorite is definitely the Grateful Heart stamp set! Thank you for sharing these! I look forward every week to seeing your new card videos!

  28. I have 2 favorites
    MFT Birth-YAY – I just ordered it & can’t wait to make a shaker card like you did!
    Pinkfresh Make a Wish – I will order it in the next few days!
    Thanks so much for all of the ideas that you share! You are the best!

  29. Wow Jennifer, I always look forward to this awesome series and it’s started with one of my favorite things, stamps!
    You ask which is my favorite and that is so difficult, if it must be a stamp than I chooce for the Tim Holtz Pressed Foliage, that such a awesome set and so versatile besides that I love TH products.
    If I can choose something you showed that’s stamp related than it’s definitely the Purple Onion Clear Mounting Stamps, this is such a great invention, they come in two sizes and are easy to use. Unfortunately I can’t find them in the Netherlands so I have to wait to buy them.

    Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put in this great series, I love it!!

  30. The sheer amount and variety of stamp sets available is amazing! How you review and choose ones to use on cards and share in videos is wonderful, but I’m so glad you do!

  31. It’s too hard to pick just one! I love them all😍. Really enjoy these videos. Thanks for doing them Jennifer. 💕

  32. I always look forward to watching this series! Thank you for putting all of this information together. 🙂 One of my favorite stamps you listed is the Hero Arts Gina K Friendship Blooms Stamp Set, so pretty!
