Let’s take a look at a few projects first.


We’ve all been super excited about our latest release which is our Coffee or Tea? stamp and die set.

We showcased it earlier in the month and here’s a few collages I made of some of our favorite projects:

CoffeeCollage4 640x640

These are two projects that I made. I just can’t express how much FUN it is to create your own cups with this fun die set! The cup comes in two sizes with options for handles, steam, a tea tag and the words Coffee and Tea.

The companion stamp set offers loads of beautifully scripted sentiments.

CoffeeCollage2 640x640

Here are more fun cards created by our super talented design team members.

I am loving the stacked cups in the top two photos. I haven’t created a stacked set of cups yet myself, but it is most definitely the next project on my list!

CoffeeCollage3 640x640

And these are fun gifty type projects created by our design team.

The various projects hold coffee pods, tea bags and a yummy coffee drink mix.

CoffeeTeaDUO 584x500

All of the above projects were created with our NEW Coffee or Tea? stamp and die set

The stamp set and die set are available for purchase separately or together

Purchase the Combo Offer for the greatest savings!

  1. Jeanine Fulton says:

    Love the tea stamp sets. Our church does a ladies tea every year and this would be great for table decorations and goody supplies. What I look for in a stamp set is versatility. I like sets I can use on many occasions. I also love sets that have stamps for both the outside and the sayings.

  2. storymusicgirl says:

    Such a great way to celebrate the start of a new year! I love those teacups!
    I generally look for stamps that come with dies and are a good size for cards (not too small). For sentiments, I love actual sayings for the card insides not always the generic greetings.

  3. Pam says:

    I always look for quality made stamps. Crisp and clear images.

  4. Heidi Johnson says:

    The thing I look for in a stamp set is versatility. If it’s going to take up valuable real estate in my room, then it’s got to have multiple uses! Happy New Year! 2018 is going to be a great year.

  5. Amanda W says:

    Thanks for sharing your creativity! I always look for lots of sentiments I can use in my stamp sets before purchasing.

  6. Barbmac says:

    Hen looking for stamp sets I like witty sentiments or quotes that make me smile or even laugh! I have become addicted to layering Stamps and wildlife (realistic) or floral & fauna Stamps are all tops on my list! TFS!

  7. Carla Hundley says:

    Beautiful creations using
    this set. I like stamps that
    are useful for several
    different occasions.
    Happy New Year!
    Carla from Utah

  8. Neva Cole says:

    I look for stamp and die sets that include sentiments that match the theme of the stamp. I also look for Bible journaling stamps that can also be used on cards or even scrapbook pages.

  9. AutismMommy says:

    Hi there. Happy New Year! When I’m shopping for a stamp set I look for images that I can use for all/any occasions. I also love when there is a few cute sentiments on the set as well

  10. Cindy Brooks says:

    I look for stamp sets that can be used in lots of different ways.

  11. Dana Marsolek says:

    Fantastic inspiration projects. I try to find stamp sets where I enjoy the images or sentiments and consider multiple ways to use them. I also look for specific images or sentiments to use for specific loved ones (guitar images, sports, etc).

  12. Beverley Hollis says:

    I like sets that can be used in multiple ways, but I’m partial to cute characters too!

  13. Mary R. says:

    I only purchase clear stamps and I love sentiment stamps that have a Christian theme.

  14. Carla vdM says:

    Happy New Year from me too.
    I like Coffee, Tea, Panda/Bear and Oriental stamps a lot and the sentiments that go along.

  15. Kim Ross says:

    Happy New Year & thanks so much for the chance to win! I have a friend that’s very into tea, so I’ll have to show her your new release!

    I look for many things when I consider purchasing a stamp set, including:
    – Do I like the design?
    – Is it unique?
    – Are there dies that match?
    – Is it versatile?
    – Is it thoughtfully designed with a stamper in mind?

  16. JennyH says:

    Happy New Year ! ! !
    Thanks for the chance to win : )
    I like sentiment stamps of all kinds, greetings for cards and little sayings for journals : )

  17. Happy New Year! 🎉 Such a generous blog hop, thank you! Gorgeous start of this crafty year! 💖
    When I buy a stamp set it must be inspirational, I have the feeling that I would create dozens cards with that.

  18. Luci Manos says:

    I look for something different and out of the ordinary in a stamp set. Happy New Year! I hope everyone has a happy and prosperous new year!

  19. Donna Abbott says:

    I like all types of stamps – from quirky to serious. But, the ones I tend to buy are the ones that can be usrd for different occasions.

  20. Lieve S says:

    I check if stamps can be used for different occasions. Can I use them in combination with stamps I have ? Is the font of the sentiment beautiful ? For some words (colour; neighbour, …) I check the spelling — here in Belgium, we write english like in England.
    Thank you for the generous give-away; good luck to all of us.
    Happy, healthy, crafty 2018 !

  21. Thank you for all of the inspiration and Happy New Year!

  22. Theresa McKinney says:

    Happy New Year & Thanks for such a wonderful giveaway! What I look for in a stamp is quality made of course, but I like CUTE images and lots of different sentiments that I can use for my cards – I can never have enough sentiments –

    Theresa McKinney

  23. Christine says:

    I look for stamps I can use in many different cards.

  24. Kari Villebrun says:

    I absolutely love the tea or coffee set. Ive been looking for one for a while and yours is absolutely perfect. I have subscribed to your blog and news letter I am in awh! of the talent of your projects. I am excited to get to know your company in the New Year. Really I only have a couple of things when I am looking for a new stamp set. One that the images are not to small, that you are able to colour them if you want with either your alcohol markers or pencils or whatever medium you want to use. Second thing I look at is the quality of stamp, meaning could I have drawn the image or is there some depth or am I able to add some depth to the stamp. Third is hard because it just has to speak to me in some way in my life, or someone I love. The reason why is because I love to make cards for my love ones. Thanks for the opportunity, it is very generous of you. I liked to wish you a Happy New Year, take care

  25. Oliev says:

    Lovely projects, great stamp set.
    I’m always looking for stamps which can be used for different occasions.

  26. Wow!! Thats a great way to share kindness!! Thank you so much everyone for coming together! 🙂 Happy New Year 🙂
    The first thing I look for in a stamp is if that is not already in my stash, and how creatively I can put it to use.. I do not go much for coloring ones as I’m not very good at it.. Sentiment ones are the next 🙂
    I’m a follower of your blog, liked and following on FB, Instagram and subscribed to the newsletter 🙂 Thank you again!

  27. JEWELZB says:

    I’m brand new to stamping so as of now I’m looking for cute but versatile stamp and die packs. Unfortunately, I have so much to purchase I can’t buy everything I want. Winning anything would be like a dream come true.
    Thank you for being so generous in the Blog Hop! Best of luck to everyone

  28. Fabulous creations, and a wonderful prize! When I’m trying to decide on stamps to purchase I look for images that I love and great sentiments. I try to go for sets that have good reusability – if I can look at a set and already come up with 2-3 (the more the better!) ideas of what to do with it, then there’s a good chance I’ll decide to get it! Thanks for the chance to win, and Happy New Year 🙂

  29. Happy New Year 2018,
    I like Coffee, Tea stamps.

  30. Ms Scrapmess says:

    Happy new year from Sweden! I look for versatility in a stamp, I wish to be able to use it in both card making and scrapbook layouts. I also do PL and wish for my stamps to be able to use in different occations etc 🙂

  31. Lorraine Turner says:


    Firstly can I say what fantastic card designs I was able to see on your Blog and how generous are you in this Blog Hop too. I am a fairly new crafter so when I am choosing a stamp set I look for its versatility in different projects. It has to have both images and sentiments, but just lately I have fallen in love with large sentiments either in dies or stamps. Thank you for being part of this Blog Hop. :O)

  32. I love sentiment stamps. I’m not a colorer, but I love adding beautiful sentiments to my cards, so I’m always on the lookout for beautiful script sentiment. I just purchased your coffee/tea stamp and die set, and I just love it. The sentiments are fabulous1 Thanks for the chance to win, and Happy New Year!

  33. Bette says:

    Love your stamps…. new to me, refreshing as a cup of tea!

  34. Dina Kowal says:

    I’m all for versatility in a stamp set – I like sentiments that can be used for multiple occasions. I really value correct spelling and good fonts, proper spacing and design… I love deep, meaningful quotes and sentiments that are heartfelt. I love your tea set, by the way! That would be my top pick. 🙂 Hugs to you, and happy new year!

  35. Sharlee says:

    I look for sets that will be versital,that can be used for various occasions. I also look for affordable prices

  36. Holly says:

    I gravitate towards stamp sets that are versatile with beautiful fonts and sentiments. Going to go take a peek at yours right now!

  37. Gab says:

    OMG those cards and projects are fantastic!! I love that stamp and die set too. When I’m shopping for stamps, I have a few themes that I really like (like tea and christmas for example). I also like to have sentiments and images on one set. And I like to think I could use the stamps in scrapbooking and card making!

  38. Elaine Sever says:

    I look for stamps that give a good crisp image and that can be used for many occasions. Happy New Year!

  39. Becca Yahrling says:

    The cards/projects using the coffee or tea? set are just beautiful!
    The font of the sentiment is really pretty. When looking for new stamp sets, I look for sets that I think I will get a lot of use out of (& that I just simply love!). Happy New Year!!

  40. Isabel Z says:

    Happy New Year! Thank you for inspiring me to create throughout 2017 and here’s to more fun in 2018. This year I hope to find more time to create! In stamps, I look for ones that are unique and versatile.

  41. Brenda SpaGal says:

    I just love that tea stamp set!
    thanks for the opportunity to win! Happy new year!

  42. Cynthia D says:

    Thank you for the blog hop, what fun!
    What I look for in a stamp is; will it encourage someone else.
    Happy New Year Stamp Simply!

  43. Happy New Year! I have not heard of your products before, so I am really glad I found you. What I look for in a stamp set is versatility – I like to have a mix of images and fitting sentiments that one can use for more than one occasion – that’s my ideal stamp set, although it’s not always possible, of course, as some stamp sets need to be more “themed”. I like it when a set is unique, and in terms of sentiments – I look at the sentiments themselves, and the fonts! 🙂 Hope this helps.

  44. Barb Bacsa says:

    When I purchase a stamp set, I look for stamps I can use for more than one occasion. I also love it when you can purchase a die set to go with it. It makes it so much easier to be creative. I tend to stay away from the wood stamps now – I may love them, but they take up too much room, and real estate is at a premium in my craft area!

  45. Rachel T says:

    In 2018 I will be looking mostly for sentiments to stamp with the multitude of stamp sets I have already purchased.Thanks for a year of inspiration, and the opportunity to win a fabulous gift! Wishing you a happier and healthier 2018! Happy New Year!

  46. Rhonda says:

    Oh my, those cards are gorgeous! Thanks for the chance to win.
    I choose a stamp set by my ability to do it justice and what appeals to me.
    I need to learn to look at the stamp sets and see them for multiple uses.

  47. Denise says:

    I look for inspiration and versatility. Thanks for your generosity! Happy New Year!

  48. Your store is new to me and I like what I see! I’m going to be checking your product out right after I leave this comment. When I’m looking at sentiment stamp sets, I have to like at least 3 or more of the sentiments before I’ll buy it. For image sets, I like clear line drawn images the best. Thanks so much for your generous give away! I’m off to check out your shop now!

  49. Beverly Perdue says:

    Love the tea/coffee stamp set and dies! The shape of the cup is great! When I purchase a stamp set, one of the first things I consider is if it has matching dies. I also like stamp sets that include sentiments along with the stamped images. Happy New Year! Hope you have a blessed new year.

  50. Debbie Rumpza says:

    I look for stamp sets that are unique, that have great sentiments and that are versatile so I get lots of opportunity to use them!

  51. Natalie Winterstein says:

    Wow, these cards are BEAUTIFUL! I usually try to weigh if I am buying stamps and dies, will I be able to use them for multiple projects? Are they versatile? I have been guilty of impulse buying in the past! 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win and happy 2018!

  52. Maria B says:

    I look for sets that are versatile. Nothing too cute.

  53. Dana W says:

    Happy New Year! Thanks for the giveaway!! I love the new tea/coffee set! As for other stamps it really depends, I have so many stamps so if its unique and something I don’t have that’s a bonus, and otherwise it just depends if I like it!

  54. amy says:

    Sharon, I ADORE you new Coffee or Tea collection!
    I (obviously) gravitate to coffee, tea and cocoa sets. LOVE big images and bold sentiments….but also love calligraphy sentiment, mixed font sentiments…

    Happy New Year!!!

  55. Judy Hodgerson says:

    I love clear stamps with fine, crisp lines. And these sentiments, sooo cute.

  56. Tracie C. says:

    I love a good quality stamp and seem to purchase ones with fun sentiments or animals.

  57. What do I love for? Quality and crispness of stamp itself. Also versatility. Can the stamp be used for multiple events and can I stretch it to use in many ways. I love this tea set bundle because I think it fits all the criteria. TFS! My goal this year is to build up my followers and create with images that make everyone smile like yours make me smile! kReN @ http://afourthlife.blogspot.com

  58. Jennie says:

    Fun blog hop! I always look for a stamp set that can be used for a variety of cards. Thanks for the chance at the fun giveaway!

  59. Linda H says:

    I love cute stamps with matching dies. I also look at the versatility of them. But sometimes one just jumps into your cart “just because” 🙂

  60. tamera newger says:

    I love stamp sets that have coordinating dies, I also love a variety of sentiments.

  61. Fikreta says:

    oh wow!
    those are gorgeous projects!
    love them all!
    and those wonderful stamps and dies! love them!
    thank you for the chance!
    I like stamps that are big size but not to big.
    Happy New Year!

  62. Sharon O says:

    Love this cup stamp/die set! It really caught my eye as I always look for stamp/die sets and for things that remind me of a special person or time in my life.

  63. Elizabeth Simpson says:

    I look for stamps that can hold ink well and that are reasonable priced. Thanks for the chance to win.

  64. Holly Flores says:

    Happy New Year!!! What do I look for in a stamp set? Ideas or creative juices, if I can visualize what I will do with a stamp set, I will buy it. If it is too expensive, I will put it on my wish list hoping for sale, but inevitably, I will go back and purchase it if I can still see that project in my minds eye….not to say I will actually do the project, lol, but at the time, i think I will

  65. NatQuebec says:

    I looked at set I can use in different occasions. As I am a French Canadian, love to have nice images too.

  66. Colette Cempura says:

    My decision to buy a stamp set is generally based on what holes I have in my stash that need to be filled.

  67. Barbara says:

    I look for stamps that I can use in any card I make. However, there are those that are needed for specific occasions such as word stamps.

  68. JoAnn Burnham says:

    Love the card and projects by your designers. I look for quality stamps that I can use for different occasions and I love flower stamps. Thanks for the chance to win.

  69. Angie says:

    Such pretty creations! I usually look for stamps in 2 ways – 1) stamps of things I don’t already have and 2) ones that when I first see them, I really, really like them! thanks for the chance to win!

  70. Bunny says:

    It has to stand out for me. Like the tea cups you’re showing. Those are lovely and are a WANT item. Thank you for the chance to win.

  71. Pat Jandacek says:

    For expression stamps I look for phrases that sound like ‘me’ – not gushy but maybe with some humor, and I need to like the font. And most anything with a bird on it.

  72. Rannah Romps says:

    Blog hops can be so much fun when the products you like are up for winners!!

  73. Lori says:

    Beautiful cards! Fantastic design team. I look for a couple of eye catching images then for some great expressions with it. Lately Ive been purchasing more of the things that I enjoy to work with rather than practical things needed to send. I guess Ive switched to having fun creating versus giving away cards LOL !

  74. Sabrina Radican says:

    What beautiful cards and projects!!
    I look for how many ways I can use it and if I an use it all year round or just during certain times of the year.

  75. Laurie says:

    I love stamp sets that come with coordinating dies to make things easy! (I don’t like to “fussy cut” things out.). I also like stamps with religious sentiments on them, and I noticed that you carry those types of stamps. I’m glad I found your website! Thank you for offering up stamp sets as blog candy!

  76. Aimee Phillips says:

    I look for a set first of all that I like such as your Sunflower. I then look for versatility…which it has…lots of sentiments. By simply changing the sentiment it can become a card for any occasion. Thanks for chance to win your awesome products!.

  77. Deb Selby says:

    I am always on the look out for coffee and tea sets, especially clever sentiments. I also look for unique images as I have a large stash of the more common images.

  78. Rox-Ann says:

    Thanks so much for the chance to win such a great prize! Happy New Year! Love clear stamps that have crisp images and easy to clean. Your Tea set stamps look perfect would love to win

  79. Lori G in PA says:

    I wish I had criteria when I buy a stamp set. I’m drawn to items that relate to my family and friends. Things that I know I can use a couple of times and appears quick to produce.

  80. Hannah Cleveland says:

    I look for stamp sets that I can use in a lot of different ways.

  81. I love cat stamps & coffee stamps!! Thanks for being part of the hop!

  82. Sharon, thank you for the beautiful stamps and dies, and I love the timelessness of them, the beautiful fonts, wonderful Scripture verses, and beautiful images like the tea cups and others. I love them and wish you and the entire team a beautiful, happy, healthy, and blessed new year!! Warm hugs! xoxo

  83. Cynthia Cole says:

    I look for stamps that can be used for many occasions. Love your Coffee or Tea stamps.

  84. Catherine Smith says:

    What I look most for in a stamp set are the sentiments, I love that you can use sentiments with other stamp sets. Love the Card Samples, Love that Stamp and die set, thanks for the chance to win and Happy New Year!!

  85. Andrea Hastilow says:

    Happy New Year !
    Wowzers what a huge prize you’re offering, thank you. As a new comer when I see stamps apart from wanting the world , I try to see how versatile they could be, so I get as much as I can from them, although I find it hard not to buy them as I love colouring them x

  86. Patti J. says:

    I love your products, Sharon! I can’t believe that I’ve never seen these before. When I look for stamps, I look for beautiful fonts, and Scriptures, as I do a lot of cards for my church. I’m looking for a way to subscribe to your blog, but can’t get there. Can’t wait to shop your store!

  87. Christine Miller says:

    I look for stamp sets that are versatile. I like sentiments and images that can be combined across sets, and I always try to make sure my collection is not “overloaded” on any one occasion or type. I am so glad to have found your beautiful stamps…I am swooning over the cup die used to cut such beautiful papers!

  88. malwinku says:

    amazing:)! happy new year:)!

  89. Dottie says:

    What attracts me to stamp sets are flowers etc but I am always looking for sentiments that give encouragement not necessarily saying how awesome someone is but truly things to ponder. Hard to find though some sentiments get close. I mostly look for scripture that focuses on God not gooey self comments. I appreciate your site for scripture stamps and putting paper, ribbons, and such together! Thumbs up to you as Sharon and your staff.

  90. I love stamp sets with both images and sentiments. Extra bonus points for coordinating die sets! These tea and coffee samples are making me thirsty on this chilly New Year’s Day, just beautiful! Thanks for the chance to win!

  91. Julie S says:

    Oh my! I am such a sucker for coffee themed stamps! Love yours. I really look for versatility in stamp purchases.

  92. Lynn says:

    Have a Blessed 2018. I prefer stamps that aren’t too tiny or flimsy as I am not a very good color artist. I also look for themes that are “out of the ordinary” as I make themed cards every month for grandchildren and great-grandchildren and am always looking for new ideas.

  93. Margaret B says:

    I love the stacking teacups…so cute. I look for stamps that can used in multiple designs as well as sentiments for both the inside and outside of a card. I also like to have matching dies.

  94. Gina Thornton says:

    I am so glad that I am following this hop! There are so many companies on it that I had never heard of! I can’t believe what I was missing!!!

    When looking for a new set, I tend to look for sentiments that will go with it. And how diverse those sentiments are. For instance, a mouse. What occasions can I use it for? Is it only an everyday stamp, or is there sentiments for Birthday, thinking of you, Christmas that will go with it?
    Happy New year!!

  95. Cary Ann says:

    Right now I’m looking mostly at sentiment stamp sets because I realized that’s what I’m lacking most in my collection. I was looking the other day I didn’t even have a simple Happy Birthday! I also want versatile sets that can be used for more then one occasion.

  96. Carol Reed Sanquenetti says:

    Cute teacup ideas. I usually go for scripture stamps, as I make cards for nursing homes and church family. Thanks for sharing.

  97. Anne Wylie says:

    When I look for a stamp set I consider the size of the stamps, the font used and if the sentiments express my feelings. If they come with coordinating dies, that’s a plus.

  98. What I look for in a stamp set, is something that I don’t already have… something quirky or clever… and something that I’ll actually use. Thank you so much for your generous giveaway opportunity! Happy New Year!

  99. JuLie L says:

    I am a coffee girl so I LOVE the cards you created!!! What I am looking for in stamp sets are uniqueness and versatility! I like making cards that are “different.” 🙂 Happy New Year!

  100. Kellianne says:

    This is why I love blog hops! I’ve never heard of this company but I’m so glad to!! I look for images that are different because I don’t like to have lots of the same type of image. I also really like to buy coordinating die sets with the stamps I buy so it’s a big plus when one is available!

  101. Kelley says:

    This is such a wonderful way to celebrate the New Year – Thank you!
    There is not one thing that I look for when selecting stamps for my extensive selection.
    Generally it is the versatility that would be my first choice. However, sometimes it is ‘subject’ or the sentiment that catches my attention. I teach a monthly ‘Build Your Stash’ class, where I teach card making for all the events in our lives and we have all created a beautiful ‘box’ where we store our ‘Stash’ cards so that they are easy to find when an event comes up. Your stamp will become a new and exciting part of these classes!

  102. Annette Gordon says:

    I mainly buy sentiment stamp sets. I look for unique sayings and fonts. The stamps I generally buy are Scripture stamp sets that go well with themes such as birthdays, births, encouragement, thanks. Thanks so much for the chance to win! May God Bless you in the new year.

  103. Marjorie Dumontier says:

    Before buying a stamp set, Im asking myself how many uses/cards could I make with it and to which applications. Thanks for your generosity and have a great year ! Love from France !

  105. Shelly P says:

    I look for a stamp that can do used many different ways and for different occasions or one that puts smile on my face.

  106. Those tea cups are fabulous!!! Oh, my goodness, some of them look just like fine china! I usually look for stamp sets that have a lot of sentiments. I have so many images already, but am always looking for encouraging sentiments to go along with them. I specially love longer sentiments that can also be used inside cards. And sets that have Scripture verses in them are added bonuses! Thanks for the chance to win!

  107. Cindee says:

    What I look for in a sentiments stamp set is the ability to create multiple sayings using the words and sentiments included. Also, this gives me the flexibility of splitting up the saying if I need to fit it in between the card design.

  108. Debbie Bonczek says:

    Holy moly – those are beautiful creations. The great thing about a hop this size is that you are introduced to new companies and creative folks that you didn’t know about before. I’ amazed by the beautiful creations and must check out the full line. Wow. Happy New Year!

  109. Karen says:

    My decision about what stamp sets to order is almost always based on the versatility of the set (can I use it in more than one way and/or “holiday”) and if it has a coordinating die set. My fussy cutting days are dwindling down (I figured God only gave me a set number of these days…..great eyesight & nimble fingers).
    Happy New Year and that you for your generous gift!

  110. Patty Eifert says:

  112. Maggie Miller says:

    What I like in a stamp set mist is versatility. I want to be able to use it all the time. The coffee and tea set is that kind of stamp set. Lots and lots of possibilities from New Years to Christmas! Great set

  113. when I have funds to purchase stamps, I look for ones that will stand the test of time, meaning they can be used for such a HUGE variety of things. My stamping budget is extremely small and although I do have a large amount of stamps and supplies, it’s not because I purchased them. For a long time I never purchased any sentiment stamps because I figured I had so many fonts and a computer so I’d do my own. Now I do buy a limited amount because I know sometimes it’s just necessary for a stamp to be used!!
    Thanks for a chance to win some goodies!!

  114. Amy Martin says:

    Civic Club High Tea and I could use this set.
    I’m starting to run out of ideas for favors.
    I usually buy stamps that pertain to the
    types of things I like or want (for instance,
    the tea set for the favors). I have never
    ordered any stamps that haven’t been
    good quality (guess I’m lucky) Stick with

    I like sentiment stamps to have an original message that I can use multiple times and usually prefer images to be able to color and embellish with comics or other coloring mediums.

    Such beautiful stamps and projects! When I shop for stamp sets I try to think about how versatile they will be and how much use I will get out of them. With a limited craft budget, I try to be careful about what I purchase. Looks like I could get a lot of use out of your scripture sets. My oldest son will be confirmed at church this spring, and each confirmand chooses a scripture verse that “speaks” to them as their verse. I would like to make each of his friends a set of notecards featuring their verse. Your stamps would be perfect! Thanks for the chance to win! Happy New Year!

  217. Krystal Showalter says:

    Love the coffee/tea sets so much! I usually look for sets that I think I will actually use since I have bought far too many that I haven’t used at all.

What I look for in a stamp set is something fun to color (not overly large) and sentiments that are meaningful or funny. THanks so much for offering such a great prize package. I am off to check out your sale bin!

  222. Lc Lamothe says:

  223. Michelle says:

    Such gorgeous tea cup cards. For Christmas I set up a tea station and absolutely love it (weird random sidebit of info for your back pocket). When selecting a stamp set I tend to pick ones that I can see multiple use out of. I also tend to lean towards ones that are super cute (I make a lot of birthday cards for little people – I have 3 toddlers). What a wonderful blog hop it’s introducing me to so many blogs I haven’t stumped upon yet. Happy New Year!

I like your Tea/Coffee set a lot and the cards and other projects that have been made using this set.
    Happy New Year!

  239. Alyse D says:

    First thank you for the chance to win! I look for stamp sets that are versatile enough for different holidays or events and have both images and text large enough to color easy but still fit on the card base.

  240. Really love the tea cups and sentiments that go along with them!! Those are just beautiful cards.
    I really dont have a specific thing I look for in a stamp set, just need to like the font and the sayings.

  241. Jackie S says:

    When I’m looking for new stamps I look for versatility, quality, and price

    great tea stamps. I look for quality stamps and sets not only with pretty images, but great sentiments as well.

  244. cyndi morris says:

    This hop is my first visit to Stamp Simply. Very impressed — beautiful projects shown. I tend to go for floral sets, but I’m trying to steer myself to more versatile stamps with sentiments.

  245. Heidi Rees says:

    Im so excited for this new year and all the inspiration to get my crafting on!

  246. Amanda says:

    When deciding on stamp sets to purchase I try to determine how often I would reach for each of the stamps in the set. If a set has one or two I wouldn’t reach for but others that I would over use I will buy it, but if it’s the other way around I won’t. Have to keep finances and storage space in mind at all times.

  247. Love the coffee and tea stamps and dies. Gorgeous cards! In stamps I look for icons and sentiments that work for many occasions, but I have bought a set because it was perfect for just one. I look for clear, readable fonts.Nothing worse than creating a lovely card that can’t be read.

  248. Stacey Kowbel says:

    Fantastic projects. When I’m buying stamps, if I don’t have a project in mind, I try to buy sets that have some great sentiments that can be used with multiple stamp sets. Thanks for the giveaway!

  249. Terri Fain says:

    When looking for a stamp set I look for versatility. Most good stamps are expensive and I would like to be able to use them for more than one occasion. I love the options you have shown with the coffee and tea stamps…Very adorable!

  250. CHRISTINE J says:

    I look for versatility. A stamp set that I can use for many different occasions.

  251. Leslie L. says:

  253. Sandy S says:

    I look for sets that can be used for a variety of different cards. You have so many great sets and the cards are beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  254. Tiffany Johnson says:

    I look for sentiments I may not have with a timeless font!

  255. barbara lassiter says:

    I love a stamp set that gives me lots of options for using it, such as your tea/coffee set and i love great sentiment stamps!

  256. Susan O'Halloran says:

  259. Anne S says:

    Happy New Year. Love your coffee and tea stamps (so on trend right now). I look for matching dies that accompany stamp sets however I am in debate right now as to whether to purchase a Brother Scan n Cut (I would no longer need the dies and would allow me to purchase more stamps).

  260. jenny stratton says:

    I usually choose my stamps with the craft I’m doing in mind. It is also really nice if they have multiple uses.

  261. Happy New Year! I love stamping and die cutting. I look for MANY things while shopping like, Sales, My favorite themes, things Ive had my eye on for a while, Holidays, Guy, Gal, kids, nautical, hunting, racing, floral-gardening, love, get well, plus all of the Holidays. St. Patricks Day is a sparse one. Do you know that the majority of family themed stamps sets are missing people? Hard to find one that has everyone in it. Thanks!
    Thanks, Paulette Still

  262. Pamela Palm says:

    When purchasing a stamp set I try to make sure that there are at least several stamps in the set that I like and will use. Very often sets have many stamps similar to what I already own and there is really only one stamp in the set that I want. I have to mention that I like the various fonts used in your stamps so I’m really interested.

  263. Isabelle says:

    Beautiful cards ! Thank you to offer such a great giveaway.

  264. FD91354 says:

    What a wonderful give away. What do I look for – I like versatility. I have to be able to use them over and over, and I dont go for funky sentiments.. those I really have to, really have to, like, to buy them. Thank you and happy 2018

  265. L Smoke says:

    I look for stamp and die sets that are versatile and have sentiments and I can also color. I would like to wish you a Happy Healthy New Year. Thank you for the generous gifts for whoever wins.

  266. Chelle Pokorney says:

    Love the coffee stamp I look for use for my friends and family to create personal projects and is it versatile for other projects for work or school…simple is better for me…

  267. ratgirl says:

    I look for stamp designs I just can’t live without (figuratively speaking, of course!) Usually they are animal designs. I prefer wood mounted stamps, but I also purchase clear stamps and foam mounted stamps. I’m afraid I find I don’t use those quite as often, though, because of the inconvenience of having to find a block, get ink all over my hands changing stamps, etc. That probably sounds like I feel more harshly against non-wood-mounted stamps than I do. I probably own more clear and foam mounted stamps than wood stamps, in reality, and I have a ton of digital stamps, too.
    I like stamps with a design that is fun to color. I love pet themes, wildlife, and fictional animals like dragons and unicorns/pegususes (is that a word?). Good sentiments are a selling point, but I need some images to come with them.
    Oh and I nearly forgot! I am always looking for cool envelope/mail theme stamps because I am a total mail nerd. 🙂 I also keep an eye out for planner stamps since I’m totally into plannering.
    I hope this helps!

  268. Kilcha Goos says:

    I am most drawn to sentiment stamps, floral designs, and clean and graphic images. As I have a large stash of the basic general sentiments, I’m always looking for quirky quotes, larger scale sentiments (that can be the focal point of my cards), or sentiments for the inside of the card.

  269. Lori Kobular says:

    Happy New Year! Thanks for the chance to be one of the lucky winners to win your awesome stamp sets! I am absolutely in love with your new teacup stamp set. I had the stamps and the matching dies in my cart, but I felt guilty ordering my own Christmas present and I didn’t want my husband to get mad, so I didn’t place the order yet, but it is surely on my Wish List! I just love that delicate teacup!

  270. Jaycee says:

    I look for stamps that are versatile or perhaps could go with other sets I already have. Sometimes I just buy because it tickles my fancy. Thanks for the opportunity to win. I have never heard of you before but I’m sure I’ll be back to look at your stock. These cards are lovely.

  271. Tasha Dawson says:

    First off those are gorgeous cards! Second, I always try to look at a stamp set and decide will I REALLY use the images and I always have to read the sentiments to figure out if they will be useful.

  272. Karen Hale says:

    Adore the coffee and tea stamps and coordinating dies. I look for stamps I can use for a variety of occasions and include some sentiments. Thanks for participating in the hop and for the generous gift. Happy New Year!

  273. Lindarub says:

    I look for stamps that I can use for birthday,thinking of you and sayings to go with the stamps.

  274. Judy Workman says:

    I look for a set that I can use a multitude of times. I want something that will be go to set time and again. I despise stamps that have one purpose. I especially love stamps with quotes.

  275. Laurie Black says:

    Those teacups are darling! I look for sentiment stamp sets with pretty fonts, and versatility is nice too.

  276. Wanda Radler says:

    I have to admit – most of my stamps include some sort of flowers and/or butterflies. I am really looking for great sentiment stamps now for the inside of my cards. Thanks for the prize opportunity!

  277. Beverly North says:

    I like stamp sets that have the related Dies. I usually like ones that have elements as well as sentiments. I tend to like flower stamps the best.
    Love the cards on your blog-so beautiful!

  278. I love unique stamp sets that have stamps that I don;t already have. Another very important thing I look for are sentiments. They need to be fun and playful or punny. I love punny. But I also send serious cards too. Sentiments are a must! Wishing you a Happy New Year. Thanks for the chance!

  280. GrammyP says:

    What do I look for in a stamp set? I’m sorry to say that it’s so subjective that I can’t really tell you–it’s what appeals to me at the time However, I will tell you that alot of it depends on the inspiration from the company selling the stamps. The more samples–the more likely I am to buy. I also like having the matching dies. I have nerve damage in my hands and it’s hard to “fussy cut” stamps. The other thing I look for in stamps are good sentiments–especially ones that can be used for masculine cards. I hope this helps you some and that you have a blessed and prosperous New Year!

  281. Annalisa Young says:

    I only really just got into stamping, so I haven’t quite figured out my style yet. But I do send weekly cards to my young nieces, so I’ll tend towards cute critters for them and then, for me, detailed flowers to color.

    Thank you for your generosity in this hop! I hope you all have a lovely 2018!

  282. Kathy Thisted says:

    I look for stamps with sentiments and images that touch my heart and go with or fill in my collection.

  284. Brandy Duncan says:

    I look for unique stamp sets for all the unique people in my life. I’m always on the look out for b’day stamps, and encouragement stamps.

  285. Jessica Kerr says:

    Happy New year! Hmm, what do i look for in stamps? Reusability is probably the biggest thing – how often will I use it, especially for images (vs sentiments).

  286. Cathy Swafford says:

    I love a versatile stamp set. I like to be able to be creative and use a stamp set for all kinds of occasions. Have to admit I’ve never seen your stuff, but I definitely subscribed to everything you got! Look forward to seeing more in 2018!

  287. christi says:

    I look for sentiments and dogs, if I can get both it’s great!

  288. CJ says:

    Thank you for the opportunity to win a couple of your lovely stamps. So generous! What do I look for in a stamp? Oh dear I’m in trouble here. I’m afraid I’m not very discerning, which is why I have so many stamps! I’m a sucker for just about any stamp that has great card samples.

  289. FeM says:

    I like sentiment stamps

  290. Darlene Fellows says:

    I look for fun stamps, and for stamps with sentiments that can do double or triple duty. I love sentiments that you can mix and match with other stamps.

  291. TracyM #6773 says:

    Wishing you all a HAPPY and Creative New Year 🙂
    Feeling INSPIRED from all these Coffee or Tea projects – WOW – the cups are delightful!
    What do I look for? Well, I have to confess that look for designs that I can use all year long, mixing with other sets. I LOVE having a combination of fonts for both traditional, beautiful, fun and quirky sentiments. Also, another biggie for me is having the option for “we”, “both” or “us” instead of “I” or “me” etc.
    THANK YOU for the chance to win some CRAFTY AWESOMENESS!

That is VERY important to me since I am TERRIBLE at fussy cutting. lol Second , I want it to have versatility, to be able to use for more than just one occasion so I can get my money worth out of the set. I am disabled and live on a fixed income so the versatility of a set is SOOOOOOO important to me to be able to save money. Thank you for asking. <3

    I usually prefer to buy a set of stamps that are good for more than one purpose. Sometimes that can’t be helped when its for a certain season or occasion but if I can use it in different ways and for more than just one project I feel like I can justify the cost of the set.

    Happy 2019! Cheers 🙂

  340. barbara lassiter says:

    I’ve been stamping and creating cards for quite awhile and thus I have lots of stamps, even though I’ve given many away. When I look for a stamp now, I want one that is versatile and not too similar to some I have in my stash. ( I’m still using some of my favorite timeless stamps) I’m not familiar with your stamps and can’t wait to look at what you offer. Thanks for being part of this hop and sharing some beautiful ideas.
