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.

    What an awesome person you are to take the time to do this. I sincerely appreciate it. It’s hard to chose but I’d say that I really like the Tree Stamp Set by Kitchen Sink Stamps. They are beautiful. Thanks again. Can’t wait to see your other videos.

    1. Thanks for putting all these stamps together! I’m sure it takes time to do! I love so many of these stamp,it would be so hard to choose. I do have the kitchen sink stamp trees on my wish list for a while and I love all Altenew layered flowers! 💕💕

  3. So very hard to choose just one but my pick is Taylored Expressions Simple Strips. I purchased the general Background one and the birthday one. Very ingenious when combined with the accompanying die. Having fun with these!

  9. I love the Altenew Ornate Foliage stamp set. I love that you are not confined to the colors of a real flower and I can go WILD with different colors.

  20. So enjoy eyeing all the “new” items each year. This really helps when I’m looking for a specific look. Thank you for posting,

  21. I am still trying to get the Mama Elephant, Paola’s Wishes set, but it is always sold out from the online shops I use. My other favorites are the Hello Bluebird Banner Buddies sets, (I was able to order all of them & the dies , YAY!)

  22. It is tough to choose which is my favorite stamp in your favorite things. For now, I have my eyes on that Ink Blot Bubble Word stamp set (I would love to color this, too!), and the Neat and Tangled Mail Background stamp. Too bad, this one is out of stock/sold out. This is a nice stamp to use to spread the word to a lot of people that snail mail is here to stay. Thank you for sharing your favorites!

  23. Hi Jennifer;
    My favorite stamp set is the Mail Drop Stamp and Die Set, by Concord & 9th. I enjoy making interactive cards – they may take a little longer but the recipients sure seem to enjoy them, and isn’t that what it is all about….sharing smiles, sharing kindness, sharing support.
    Thank you Jennifer for teaching me to love crafting!

  24. Thank you for the great video..I appreciate all of your hard work and love seeing all your favorites and getting lots of great ideas….

  25. Lots of great sets.. hard to choose a favorite, but Make a Wish is at the top.. I make lots of birthday cards and this is such a creative set.. you could also use it for anniversary, retirement, new home, lots of possibilities…

  26. Thank you for all that you do! You have such wonderful crafting skills – I watch all of your videos. My favorite stamp set is the Wplus9 NEIGHBORS set. I have used this set many times as I live in a new neighborhood, as well as made cards for friends that have moved to new areas. Happy holidays to you and your family.

  27. Too many that I like, but if I had to pick one it would have to be the Tim Holtz Pressed Foliage. Perfect for masculine cards, which I run out of ideas for creating. And Thank You Jennifer for these end-of-the-year Favorite Crafty Things. Really appreciate all the effort you put into pulling it all together for us.

  28. So many favourites! For today, I’m quite smitten with Pretty Pink Posh’s Animal Signs! Adorable!
    Thank you for yet another fabulous, informative, engaging video!

  29. Thank you for sharing these! So much fun! So hard to pick a favorite . . . . at the moment Crazy Daisy from Gina K

  30. Hi Jennifer! My favorite stamp set is the WPlus9 Neighbor set – I don’t have this set, I’ve been trying to order it for months and it’s been on backorder. I’m hoping I get it for Christmas – I’ve talked about it so much my husband knows all about it and here’s to hoping he’s going to be a good “Santa” LOL! 🙂 Thank you for sharing your favorites with us! -Denise

  31. Thank you Jennifer for the great videos introducing so many creative products. Because I have a very limited budget to work with, I think the CZ Design Clear Stamps CLEAN LINE EVERYDAY set and the Concord & 9th SIMPLE SERIF ALPHABET Clear Stamp set are my favorite. They would be great for extending my sentiment stamping. A bonus if the coordinating dies for each set!

  32. I love the depth of detail you explain behind all of your products and techniques. I have problems going back and finding some answers to questions I have since I can’t always find the blog posting, so here I my question today:
    I see you have several layers of Gemini plates taped together to use in die cutting. I know you have to alter the sandwich by adding addition ones, but which plates do you have taped together as a “base” to grab first? Thank you

  33. The TE Simple Sentiments stamps and dies are awesome! I have added all of them to my wish list! How nice it would be to have a stash of “ready to go” sentiments strips at your fingertips!

  34. I dealt like the Gina K love and kindness stamp set. I really enjoyed watching your video and seeing some new to me stamp sets!

  35. The Mama Elephant Mini Everyday Messages would be great, as it has all the essentials and some nice extras, as well. Thanks for the video!

  36. Oh so many wonderful stamps! It is difficult yo pick one but I especially love the background stamps. I’ve watched how you have used backgrounds and the possibilities seem endless.

  37. Love this series! Thank you for all the work and time you put in it.

    Kitchen Sink’s Trees stamps – so realistic!

  38. I only have one background stamp & that is new. So I’m focusing on them. Ithink the Simon Leaves & Berries will my next purchase. It looks so versatile-you could use it all year long.

  39. I have to say the one thing I’ve been trying to add more of to my supply list is the background stamps . I’ve been watching your videos and all the options these stamps give and o knew I was gonna have to add these for sure. My favorites would have to be the Thin striped lines and the rainbow scoops. I have also been wanting the W plus 9 Neighbors stamp set ever since I saw the video. I’m patiently waiting for it to come back I’m stock. Lol
