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. For more info, visit HERE. If you have questions, please email me.]

  1. I am loving all of the CZ Designs Clean Lines stamps and the coordinating dies! Clean Line Everyday and Clean Line Christmas are “must-haves”!

  2. Recently I’ve become really intrigued with background stamps, so I’d have to say the Simon Says LEAVES AND BERRIES BACKGROUND is my favorite. I can see so many different possibilities using it.

  3. I look forward to this series every year! Each year just gets better! Thank you for using your time in this way!

  4. So many great sets. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I really love the C9 Mail Drop stamps/dies as well as Altenew’s Leaf Clusters.

  5. Thanks for the stamps video. All the stamps are beautiful but the Kitchen Sink tree stamp has got to be my favorite.

  6. Waffle Flower Here For You sentiments. N3ed something like this for my stash. Also Mama Elephant Handcrafted Happiness!

  7. Altenew Leaf Clusters. I enjoy your videos, but I do end up spending more money than I probably ought to because of them.

  8. Talk about a whole season’s-worth of video ideas! This series is great, thank you. If I had to choose just one, it would be SSS Leaves and Berries, that theme is always so gorgeous.

  9. After I watched your video, I ordered the SSS Stamps and Berries. I already loved it very much … but I couldn’t resist any more 😉

  10. First off I appreciate so much all the time and effort you put into your videos. But dadgummit I want wayyyy more than I can afford. lol. Your generosity it’s so heartwarming also. I want to watch the video about inks and commented, I didn’t realize that these prizes were being personally donated. For so many reasons you are such a treasured gem for the stamping community. Hugs and God bless

  11. Wow, so many to choose from! My top pick from your list is the Altenew Sentiment Strips Clear Stamps. I like all the occasions covered and will definitely be putting this set on my wishlist!

  12. Absolutely the best, Taylored Expressions strip stamps and die sets!!! Easy to stamp and cut out and to mass produce and have on hand!!

  13. I really like Honey Bee Anchors The Soul. It’s a great reminder and a little different then the other support/encouragement options.

  14. So excited to see Unity stamps in your list this year. I have a growing collection of these and am never disappointed in the quality. I have been wanting the Taylored Expression strips and love the smaller sets.

  15. I am really glad xcited about the Taylored Expressions Simple Strips stamp and dies! What a fantastic idea to be able to stamp and cut them all!
    Thanks so much for all the inspiration!

  16. I love all types of stamps and so many brands. But I definitely need to check out Taylored Expressions. Those sentiment strips look amazing.

  17. My favorite is Gina’s Love & Kindness. They inspire me to put more kindness out into the world, one card at a time!

  18. I really love the PinkFresh Studio Make a Wish Stamp Set. I don’t have any birthday stamps and this is so versatile especially with all of my little grandchildren. This stamp set could be used over and over again as the kids grow up.

  19. Thank you so much, Jennifer, for the chance to win.
    My favorite stamp ( it was hard to pick just one), is the Taylored Expressions Create in Color Background Stamp. It is a picture of a group of pencils and I have so many ideas on how to use it. Thanks for your suggestions and inspiration.

  20. Such a hard decision! So many great products here to choose from. I’d say my favorite is probably the Taylored Expressions Simple Strips stamps. Many many wonderful sentiments–and the super bonus of the dies to cut them all out!! I have a hard time cutting out small sentiments straight and evenly. A great tool. Thank you so much for sharing with us your favorite things so we can learn what’s available and recommended. I value your opinions and the wonderful things you do with the different products.

  21. I love so many of these stamps!! GinaK’s Crazy Daisy is adorable and looks like lots of ways to have fun playing with it – and the dies & stencils too! Thanks, Jennifer!

  22. I just got Gina K’s Have Faith stamp set yesterday. I love the large size and the meaningful sentiments. I will be using these a lot! Thanks Jennifer!

  23. It’s really hard to pick a favorite out of all of these! I would have to choose the Kitchen Sink Trees stamp set…they are so realistic looking!

  24. I am loving background stamps especially the layering ones. I love the Altenew floral stamps also. One thing I never seem to purchase is the smaller cutsie types. I never thought of using them to build scenes or to layer. You opened a whole new world to me. I always thought of stamping is to flat I like layering them or never thought about cutting them out seemed to much of a hassle. Well with matching dies everything is possible

  25. Pink Fresh Studio Make a Wish on one favourite stamps set ….burt there are many great stamps mentioned here, thanks Jennifer for this wonderful series.
