    I love how versatile they are. I have been using a lot of my stamps for dates lately, and I especially love some of the “grungier” style stamping for my boy layouts, since I have a 3 year old son. It would be awesome to win some of those Amy Tangerine date stamps to add to my collection.

    i love stamping – i have quite a few and use them for the outside of envelopes to help dress up a store-bought card in a pinch, stamp a gift tag, add character to a quick note to someone, etc. i love that you can stamp just about anything to add to it as well as creating your own things from scratch.

    I love being able to layer stamps to create a unique feel. I frequently cut my stamp out and pop it up with some foam for an extra “pow” effect

    I love to use stamps on my cards. I never have to worry about where I want to position an image since they are not restricted like punches. I use them on the outside and inside of my cards then on the envelope. I would be so thrilled to win this awesome giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity!

    My favorite thing about stamps are their versatility in use. I can stamp any color I like, I can ink any region of the stamp I like or I can stamp just about anywhere I like. I can use them in cards, gift wrap, scrap book pages and a multitude of other crafts.

    Ohh, I love how you can use stamps over and over again across different projects. And if you’re like me, and tend to use one stamp for multiple layouts before moving on to the latest stamp, you’ll see which layouts were created at the same time. And if you create layouts in a non-chronological order, the stamp kind of acts like a mini-timestamp.

    I like that you can customize your colors and look. And now my favorite designers have their stamp sets that have the cute icons like their stickers. But once you use your cute sticker, it’s done and you have to buy more. Not with a stamp. It’s yours forever.

    Love that they can be used as a one dimensional element or that they can be used to add dimensional layers simply by stamping, “fussy” cutting and adding a pop dot. Also love that my two little daughters have so much fun playing with them and I don’t have to worry about them “using them up”! Ha, ha, selfish Mama!
