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. My most favorite stamp is the Kitchen Sink Stamps – Trees Stamp Set. Thank you very much for sharing your favorite things.

  2. A favorite? Wow – that’s tough. I’m a big fan of background stamps, so I think I’ll choose the SSS Leaves and Berries. So pretty!
    I’m so thankful that you are doing this series once again. I found it so helpful a couple of years ago when I was just starting out with card making as I was able to see what kind of basics I should look for, as well as gauge what I might like and what companies to check out. You are awesome for doing this! Only drawback – as soon as you put something on your favorites list, it’s out of stock in a flash – lol!!

  3. That is a hard question to answer, so many great sets! I like the Altenew Dot Botanicals Stamp Set. Thanks for all the great suggestions!

  4. The Alphabet!! I love all alphabets. So Concord & 9th SIMPLE SERIF ALPHABET Clear Stamp for the win.
    I have a question about how to store Red Rubber sets that do not have cling since you can use the recommended Purple Onion Clear Mounting stamp. I just bought all of the Avery Elle packaging for 200 stamp sets to convert. Thank you.

  5. There are so many to choose from it is a hard choice. I guess I would have to say the Brutus Monroe Flower Doodle background stamp.

  6. Hello,
    as always not so easy. But I like Gina K Crazy Daisy Stamp & Die & Stencil set the most. It is so creative!

  7. Thanks so much for sharing, A few of my likes are the tree from Kitchen Sink, a company I have new heard of. Another one is the Anchor the soul. Do pray your MIL is doing well.

  8. I fell in love with the Altnew Leaf Clusters stamp set. A card maker can never have enough leaf patterns. Thank you for your videos, they are very inspiring. I watch them while I’m on the treadmill. Thanks to you I love walking on my treadmill!

  9. So many AMAZING products! and these are just your favorites?
    I love the fonts on the Ellen Hutson Totally Random Sayings- I think it adds personality to that “handmade” feel.
    The card making industry has come a long way. It shares a tremendous amount of imagination, ingenuity, creativity and generosity! I’m proud to say I am a card maker!
    Thank you for sharing your talents and time with us!

  10. I absolutely love when you post your favourite things! It’s such a great way to get my brain organized with all the different amazing products out there. To choose one favourite would be nearly impossible, but I’ve been getting more into the background stamps as they are so versatile and that lattice stamp from Whimsy Stamps looks amazing, definitely want to try it out!

  11. I am a sucker for coloring and I must say Lila has some great taste. I too think the Taylored expression pencil background is my favorite. It was a must have as soon as I seen it. I had a friend who was going to the stamp show in another state that week and I would see her a couple weeks later. I had her buy it for me with a bunch of other items from that release. I have colored so many of those pencils already. Rainbow of course. I just keep switching back and forth between my different coloring mediums.

  12. I just LOVE the Simple Strips Stamp Set and Dies from Taylored Expressions. They’ve made the fussiest part of finishing a card very simple and easy. I keep little boxes full of Birthday, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas sentiment strips in various colors and embossing finishes ready to go at any time. They are a wonderful product!!!!

  13. I love the Brutus Monroe Super Sentimental Stamp Set. The Fonts are so cheery. The Layered Foliage one you are making is stunning! I love that its not a conventional flower. I have the MFT Birth-Yay also and it is so fun to colour. Love making cards with their sweet characters. <3 Thanks for all your hard work on these lists Jen. I put some on my wishlist. xox

  14. Lovely recommendations – too many that are favourites!! Love the Concord & 9th Kindness Blossoms Turnabout Clear Stamp Set, and the Hello Bluebird Banner Buddies Stamp Set.

  15. My favorite stamps from this video series are the background stamps. I’m a BIG fan of Impression Obsession background stamps. I have at least 30 of theirs and have recently been collection Simon’s various backgrounds as well.

  16. I have watched many of your videos and the one with the anchor inspired me so much that I bought the Honey bee stamps Anchors the Soul stamp set. I love this set and there are so many things that can be done with it. Thank you for taking the time to share all your favorite things!

  17. I can’t thank you enough for another great video! Whenever I find myself in a creative slump I select a couple of your videos and find inspiration to create a project of my own from your techniques and ideas! My favorite stamp from this video is the Altenew leaf clusters stamp set. I think it would be a perfect background stamp for so many different card designs.

  18. I love these Favourite Things videos. It is quite difficult to pick just ONE. My choice is Gina K Kindness Stamp and die set. Thank you for doing these videos Jennifer.

  19. I love the Hero Arts Mix and Match stamp. I’m in the beginning stages of cardmaking so this is super versatile. I love your favorite things series, it really helps me figure out what is needed now and what will be a fun splurge later!

  20. I cant get enough of sentiment stamps. I got my eye on the Birch Press Design LINGO THANKS Clear Stamp Set cl8143. Thanks for all your tips Jennifer.

  21. The Kitchen Sink Stamps – trees are so lovely but out of stock already!! I love the Gina K stamps set – so might have to get that instead. Thank you for sharing your favorites – it is a lot to choose from!

  22. It’s hard to pick just one…I love the Kitchen Sink layered trees (I’ve started using layered stamps recently and these look amazing). 😃

  23. Fantastic list of stamps! I love all of them (well, nearly all…) sentiment sets are a must… I so want the Taylored Expressions Simple Strips stamp and die set… floral sets are my absolute favorites… love Altanew! Backgrounds stamps are nice too… easy to work with… now I want to do up in my craft room and stamp! LOL! Thank you Jennifer!

  24. I love the house builder die. You can use it Year round…has a gingerbread add on die…..i ❤️ Love it!
    There are so many wonderful dies I can’t get enough of them all….FUN FUN FUN!!!!

  25. Thanks for doing this series again this year. Hope I get a chance to watch them all.
    My favorite from these would be the Tim Holtz Pressed Foliage set. I have a “thing” about leaves and this one is beautiful.

  26. Love your choices! You really do have something for everyone. I really love the uniqueness of the Taylored Expressions Simple Strips. I never get my strips perfect when I hand cut them so this set would be perfect for me.

  27. So many great choices, many of which I missed. I think my favorite is the Neat and Tangled Mail Background stamp. That is such a versatile stamp. Thanks for doing these videos each year. They are very helpful!

  28. So many great stamps out this year! How is a girl supposed to budget with all these options? I love the smooth sailing set because I am a sailor, but am a sucker for anything that layers and/or I don’t have to fussy cut out

  29. Thank you so much for doing these videos, Jennifer – I look forward to them every year! My favorites this year are the Leaves and Berries background stamp, the Trees, and Simple Strips.

  30. Thank you so much Jennifer, for doing these videos for us, they are such a great reference point. This year I love the SSS Thanks and Encouragement stamps and dies. This is a fabulous product and so clever, being able to have so many sentiments, so easily is a game changer!
    Once again, my humble thanks.
    T x

  31. Taylored Expressions Simple Strips stamp and die set is but one favourite of mine. I appreciate the time and effort taken to put together this wonderful series and thank you Jennifer.

  32. So many things to add to my wish list…..did order the purple onion stamp mat to use with un-mounted rubber stamps…..already sold out so had to pre order – LOL! Now, off to check out the other items on my wish list! Thanks so much Jennifer…..great to see all in one place!!!!
    Paper Hugs,
