Which is Your Fave Stamp?


Hi there! If I asked you which stamp your favourite is, would you be able to answer? Perhaps some of you have one particular stamp you use more than any other stamps in your collection, but my answer to that question would be: Depends!

I have some fave stamps I frequently use when making greetings cards - which stamps depends on the occasion and person, and some faves that I actually don't use that much - they're just faves because I've had them since forever and just looking at them brings back fond memories of my early days as a stamp addict. New stamps are also often a fave - for a while ...

However! I had to pick ONE fave because my stamp company is sponsoring Stamping Sensation's August Challenge, where fave stamp is the theme. So after twisting my brain and apologising to all my other faves for leaving them out like that, this house from Textured Houses (Rubber Dance), came out to play - as it has so many times before. I find it very versatile as it can be used for many occasions, and it's super easy to cut out (me likes that!) and layer on top of one another like this:


I'm going to send the card above to a friend of mine for her birthday later this month. She lives in the US - pretty much on the other side of the globe from me - and I know she has a LOT of stash ...  I think she'll get a kick out of this, especially the sentiment (a stamp from 'You Rock!', Rubber Dance). The flowers are from Floral Wreath and the sun is from a set that was just released at Rubber Dance (free shipping till the 11th of August!), called Tropical Summer. I'll stamp a birthday greeting inside the card and leave room for a personal message.


Another friend of mine moved recently, to new beginnings and adventure - sentiment is a Tim Holtz sticker.  House stamp from Textured Houses, wings from Butterfly Trio and hill from Whimsical Summer (all from Rubber Dance).



The challenge at Stamping Sensations runs from 5th to 29th of August.
Come show us YOUR fave stamp!

Here are some things I've made with the house stamp before,
in combo with more houses from Rubber Dance: 



These were published in the Craft Stamper magazine, February 2017
- even made it to the cover! 




Some more houses .....











Told you it was versatile! :-) 


The house stamp can be found on this 5 x 7 inches sheet


but if you just want the bottom row it's available here.




Thanks so much for looking!

I guess it's not common that people go back to see if they were thanked for their comments, so I will say it now: THANK YOU so much for taking the time to leave a comment! ♥
