    I look for sentiment stamps that are different from what i already have. I love when stamp sets can be used in multiple ways.

  3. Susie G. says:

    What I look for in a stamp set pretty much changes day to day. One day Ill be in a flower mood, but the next day I want a stamp that has pretty hair. It depends on what Im working on or what I feel like coloring. Happy New Year!! 🥳

  4. Heather B says:

    Thank you for participating! What do I look for in stamps? Easy storage (clear sets), adorable images. I love it when sets go with good sentiments, as I feel I can never have too many sentiments! Thanks.

  5. Cathy Lillie says:

    Lovely cards and papers! I put a lot of thought into a stamp set before I purchase it. I’m always looking for something different from what I already have and something that I will get a lot of use from. Trendy isn’t really my thing. I like classic sentiments that speak to me, beautiful floral images, and cute critters that warm my heart.

  6. Michele W says:

    I love that this blog hop is introducing me to companies that are new to me – like yours. When purchasing a new stamp set I look for versatility and for something that’s not to trendy. I want to be able to use it over time and not just for now. I love to find new sentiments and images I can use for masculine cards.

  7. Barbara J Bacsa says:

    Loved these cards. Simple, yet so pretty. I look for stamps sets that I can use and reuse in different ways. For example, I like sets that I can use for both masculine cards and sympathy. And I am always looking for verses for inside the card.

  8. GrandmaUpNorth says:

    Happy New Year. Great cards. In a stamp set I look for different ways I can use it .

  10. Paula G says:

    I look for versatility or longevity. I either need to be able to use it in many ways or it needs to stand the test of time.

  11. Georgiana says:

    I look for a variety of things in a stamp set but clarity is key. I like a nice crisp stamped sentiment and/or image. Sometimes I like oversized sentiments, but other times I need a small one for spacing. It just depends on the project. I do consider the company’s reputation, price, and shipping policy too. Thank you for the opportunity and Happy New Year!

  12. Cynthia D says:

    Most of my cards are made to encourage the elderly so I look for sentiments and imagery that appeals mostly to their generation.

    I like that a sentiment stamp can be used different ways. Your sentiments look awesome!

  16. Lisa Byers says:

    I look for stamps that I know I will use more than once or twice. I always look for quality. It’s always frustrating when you stamp an image that is not crisp.

  17. Love these elegant cards. Very clean and beautiful. I normally pick up stamps that I can use for multiple techniques and occasions. I love background and layering stamp sets. I also like sentiment sets that have a good mix of fonts.

  18. Karen Prewitt says:

    I look for stamp sets that have sentiments along with the pictures.

    I look for stamp sets that offer images WITH verses.

  24. Siobhan Burtlow says:

  29. Corrine Ann says:

    Great cards! I like sentiments that are timeless and work for the people I make cards for. I like stamp sets that have sentiments and also dies that coordinate. I cannot do intricate coloring any more so dies are a blessing for me.

    Happy New Year!

  30. Heather Bridson says:

    I look for something fresh, something I think I would use more than once. I also look for classic shapes that can be used in many ways.

  42. Sara says:

    I like a stamp set that uses up the space provided. I like something versatile that has many uses, and mostly I like stamp sets that have an inside and matching outside sentiments. There are a few out there but there should be so many more… I dont feel a card is complete without something inside it. I’m not good with making everything a basic note card.

  43. Carolyn says:

    I used to just purchase stamps that appealed to me, but now I purchase stamps that offer the greatest versatility as I no longer have a lot of room for storage. Thanks for the chance to win and Happy Crafty New Year.

  66. D.Ann C says:

    These are such pretty cards! I look for pretty fonts, not run-of-the-mill Times/Courier that you could easily type out on the computer or typewriter. And unusual sentiments, not the over-used Bloom Where You Are Planted, variety. I also keep my eye out for Portuguese sentiments as I have a ton of friends from Brazil I need to send cards to regularly, but finding them is rare. Thanks for sponsoring this fun hop!

  67. Barb S says:

    I often look for images that I can color, because I love to do that. And extra points if there are matching dies. Beyond that, Im always on the lookout for occasion sentiments with unusual or beautiful fonts. Happy 2019!

  68. Simple and beautiful cards!! 🙂
    I usually get stamps when I think I really need that set, and I usually really needs that most of the time, LOL!

  69. Bonnie Eng says:

    I love those paper patterns, and the cards. As for what I look for in a stamp, I guess first would be versatility – can it be used for more than one project type. Can I use it to deboss on texture paste, or as a background on a jewelry project too? Is there interesting texture also. Also, a sense of humour is nice too.

  70. Rachelle A. says:

    Such beautiful and inspirational designs! I look for something that makes me smile in a stamp set, then I look at price. If I can afford it, I get it.
    Happy New Year and God Bless! Thanks.

  76. Kathy Barrett says:

    I love clear stamps with cute whimsical designs such as adorable animals but especially cat stamps! When it comes to sentiments, I like sets with versatility and a cute font.

  77. Donna Wyant says:

    When I look for a stamp set – It has to be versatile and can be used in multiple ways. Ones that I can color, watercolor etc. has to have good sentiments with it. Sentiments have to be out of the box. Most sentiments say the same thing in a variety of ways. I want sentiments that say” You make the world a better place” or “The world is better because you are in it”.

  78. Lynne Ingram says:

    I look for sentiments that are different from the usual plain happy birthday, thank you, etc. I like stamps that can be used all thru the year.

  79. Phoebe says:

    I look for the design & versatility in stamps.

    I look either for something that I know I can use many times, or something so unusual that I cannot live without it, even if I only use it once.

    I select my stamps based on how much use
    I think I will get out of them. I need to be
    able to incorporate them into different
    cards for different people so each is unique.
    I love the designs in your samples and the
    way they are off-center. Elegant idea.
    thanks for sharing. txmlhl(at)yahoo(dot)com
    Happy New Year

  85. Lieve S says:

    Your cards are beautiful !
    I like sentiment-stamp-sets; but I select on how “difficult” they are for everyone to understand (since we speak Dutch were I live).
    I like to choose some stamps which are different of what I have already, and that they can be used for different occasions. Beautiful background stamps are great too.
    Thank you for your giveaway !

  129. Pretty cards….I like how you used the patterned papers. 🙂 I have certain themes in stamps I look for like coffee, cats, pretty floral, etc. But I also like to purchase images I haven’t seen before or are unusual. Happy New Year!!!!

  130. Marisa Ritzen says:

  134. Debi Walton says:

    When buying a stamp I’m usually looking at the style of artwork and the sentiments if included. Also looking at the potential of how to use the stamp.

  142. Cheriese says:

    I like stamp sets that have multiple sentiments that are super versatile! And they need to have the correct (British) spelling – ie. MUM instead of MOM! hehe

  143. Cy says:

    I am a moody person… not really, but I do look for whatever my mood or mindset is driving me towards. Some days it is whimsical, others sentimental, sometimes fun, others serious. I like nature all the time, but an elephant, fairy, mouse or frog will catch my attention every time and a naked tree always beckons. (Tree without leaves)

    Happy New Year everyone!

  149. Deb Selby says:

    I look for unusual objects in the stamp image so that I am adding something new to my stash.

  150. ANGE LEE says:

    Happy 2019
    I look for realism. Love flowers that are true to form, imperfection embraced.
    Love individuality and uniqueness, not what’s the ‘in” “on trend” designs.

  151. Denise Bryant says:

    Pretty cards! Love the paper pad!

  155. Melissa Smith says:

    Happy New Year! This is the first time I’ve been on your site. I love that blog hops introduce me to new folks and creative cards! When I’m looking for a stamp set, I’m looking for something that reminds me of my friends and family, I think realism is a plus, I also look for larger sentiments(My friends and I are in our fifty’s and it’s not worth straining to see items.), and I look for extra details in each stamp. I’m amazed at the talented people out there!

  156. Traci Major says:

  159. awesome creations… i am always on the hunt for teenager sentiments… not enough of them

  160. Audre G says:

    I like the cards you made. They look complex but there are only a few pieces. When I am purchasing a stamp set these days I am looking for good sentiments that I would actually say myself. I also like larger sentiment in an attractive font and a carry over sentiment for the inside of the card.

  161. Susan King says:

    I like sets that are versatile . Like having a bell that I can turn upside down and it can be a cloche! My first project this year will be Thank you cards for my daughter who is having a baby next month!

Most of the cards I make are donated to the troops and I like to give them a variety of different things. I just visited the store and omg you have some amazing products! Your cards are absolutely beautiful! The papers are gorgeous and I adore the fishtail banner die for sentiments. Thanks for sharing your creativity and keeping us inspired!!

  164. Beverly Perdue says:

  171. Subhashini says:

    I LOOK OUT FOR THE DESIGN AND VERSATILITY OF THE STAMP WHEN PURCHASING ONE

  172. Dina Kowal says:

  173. Sheryl L says:

    I look for stamp sets that have different sentiments and images that I dont already own. I love snarky sentiments.

  174. Michel Espey says:

  180. jean maxwell says:

    I am always on the look out for a unique sentiment.

  181. Jo Anne Malicoat says:

    When I’m considering a stamp set, I look to see how versatile it is. I don’t like buying a stamp set that can only be used for one or two cards. My favorite sets have several images, and at least 3 or 4 included sentiments. I also like stamp sets that are a bit on the playful side. Thank you.

  182. NWFlamingo says:

    There isnt really a formula I have for picking a stamp set. My taste is quite eclectic. I do make a lot of cards so funny inside-out sentiments with matching images are great.

  183. Breina Burgin says:

    When I look at a stamp set to add to my collection, I want the sentiments to be useful, not necessarily a repeat from my collection, and I prefer the set to have an inside sentiment. Also, if the stamp set has critters or objects, that it has coordinating die sets.

  184. Jan says:

    I look for a set of images and an extra bonus to get sentiments that go with the images. Happy New Year! What an awesome prize!

  185. Cheryl Inman says:

    I look for stamps that have a variety of items (images and sentiments), as well as uses. If the stamps have coordinating dies, that also is a plus! Unique sentiments are also fun!

  186. andrea murdock says:

    great question! I mostly look for versatility. I look for images and sentiments that can be used for more than one occasion. Likely why I own so many flower stamps lol. Love sets that come with sentiments for different things, like birthday thinking of you etc.

  187. Super Stick Chick says:

    Beautiful cards. I like stamps that have a quality design and seem to have a personality.

It always helps to see an example of how the set is used – 9 times out of 10 a sample card will spark me to buy a set. Thanks for the chance to win and choose some of your great stamps.

  195. Cheryl Phillips says:

    When I am looking for stamps, I look for versatility. Stamps that can be used for many occasions. For sentiments, I look for classic or funny sayings.

  196. Sharon Edwards says:

    I look for stamp sts that I think I will be able to use often. I am just starting out and I don’t have a lot of stamp sets yet–so I want to get stamps I can use for different cards. I need more sentiment cards, for sure!

  197. Daniela May says:

    Happy New Year! What I look in a stamp or die is versatility and design that is modern which suits my style. The DT work that is published with a release does help to visualize how a stamp or die can be used as well.

  198. Sara mckinlay says:

    The thing I look for is versatility. Can I you this set for multiple cards? Especially if I can use it for different themes, like 5habk you and birthday. Pluse anything cute

  199. Amy Marshall says:

    Happy New Year. Thanks for the chance to win. When I look for a stamp I look for sentiments that have a fun fonts and are versatile. For images, I look for something that I don’t already have something like it and would be fun to color.

  200. Cindyellen Robinson says:

    what an interesting shop you have. i look for versatility – can i use the image in a number of different ways/seasons? i look for quality – is this going to stand up over the test of time and use? will it take pigment and dye ink and still come clean? will it start to dissolve if i leave it too long between cleanings? is it thick enough for me to get a clean image with an acrylic block as well as a stamping tool? In sentiments, i look for ease of readability, something i don’t already have, an odd expression that expresses me and not just a general blah.

  201. Becca Neeley says:

    When shopping for stamps I looks for something that inspired me to create! I love when I see a stamp and ideas for cards start coming. I also look for versatility, like many others have said. I want to get use out of the investment and be able to use it over and over!

  202. Helen says:

    Thanks for being part of this blog hop! The cards you’ve shared are “simply” lovely. I already love kaisercraft paper — and these stamps are so elegant. What I look for in a stamp set are classically elegant images (not cutesy or cartoon-like) and simple sentiments. These requirements allow me to use them for all sorts of card occasions as well as scrapbooking. Thanks for asking.

  203. Sue D says:

    Wonderful cards–I like this design.
    I look for something that I don’t have already and products that would be good for our church card ministry.

  204. Germayne Turner Nash says:

    I tend to gravitate toward sentiment stamps or larger stamps on which I can practice my coloring. I love the cards I’ve seen so far and have subscribed to your blog. Ryan!

  205. Jacqueline says:

    I love sentiments stamps and look for versatility to use for card making and scrapbooking. The cards are all beautiful!

  206. Mindy Drummond says:

    When I consider buying a stamp set I try to think of all the different uses I can get out of it (occasions, styles, combining it with other sets, etc) so that I know I am spending wisely. There are so many that I really love but like most I can’t buy everything I want lol. It all comes down to “need to have” and “want to have” however sometimes “want to have” wins out 🙂

  207. Teri Ives says:

    Just wow. Love the colors, the paper, ideas

  208. Penny Laschanzky says:

    Lovely, stunning cards! really love them. What do I look for in a stamp set? love one that has affordable coordinating dies, with lovely interesting font mixes, love some good sentiments that will get a lot of use….not a sentiment that will sit in the pack & never see ink, and I sometimes like beauty but other times like whimsical.

  209. KELLY HUNSAKER says:

    Thank you for the chances to win such great prizes!

  210. Wonderful cards. Great color combos and I love the simplicity – Makes for such an elegant effect.The top thing I look for when selecting a stamp is quality – followed closely by versatility. I love stamp sets that can be used in multiple ways. Thank you for your amazing sponsorship of this hop and for sharing your creativity with us!

  211. Annalisa says:

    Boy, that’s tough. I look for reusability and things that I can use with the supplies I have. So, for instance, I recently received several Altenew ink packs, so I’ve been looking at layering stamps, because I have the gradients of ink to use them easily. I’m also getting into sentiment stamps now, because I feel like I’ve built up a lot of images, and I want to be able to use them for lots of different occasions. In sentiments I look for novelty, whether that’s in the wording or in sizing, font, etc. I feel like this was a less than helpful comment, but that’s what I look for! Thanks for the chance to win, and cheers for 2019.

  212. Laura L says:

  214. Ciara taylor says:

    I tend to look for something I can colour. With copies or watercolours so I love details. Im a huge fan of flower stamp sets

  215. Janice KC says:

    I don’t have a particular style. I look for unique stamp and die sets and they must be able to coordinate with what I already have. The sentiment stamps should be crisp when stamped as well as embossed.

  216. TracyM #6773 says:

    HAPPY New Year 🙂
    LOVE your cards, the designs are SO ELEGANT!
    I look for sentiments with pretty font combinations, often with words that can mix ‘n match, I also have to confess that I am addicted to flower stamps too, from single elegant flowers to clusters and detailed blooms.
    Thank you for being part of this Blog Hop and for the chance to win!

    I look for stamps that are easy to use (love clear cling sets) and versatile (can get a lot of different kinds of cards from it). Thanks!

  221. Julia L says:

    The main thing I look for is does the set speak to me. The other is a bunch of samples with the set. Sometimes it is hard to picture projects with certain stamps and I’m definitely influenced if I see really good samples!

  222. Michelle S says:

    I live your cards! What I look for when buying products are ones that I can use in different ways and with different sets. Your flower ones are great! And matching dies are so important . Thanks for such amazing products😀

  224. Boryana Yankova says:

    Lovely cards! Usually I look for a stamp set that will use for different occasions.

  225. Ruth Tacoma says:

    My decision is usually based on whether I will use it right away for a card or not. If it’s just cute but I am not going to use it for a specific card I generally will wait.

  226. Kerry in PA says:

    I like a multitude of styles from cute critters to elegant florals. When I am looking at a stamp set I ask myself whether it is unique, something different that I don’t have and something that I couldn’t create on my own and that could be for more than one occasion. For greetings or verses, I’m not quite sure how to describe what I mean but I look for something that isn’t just a straight plain font. If I could print out the greeting or verse on my computer, I’m less inclined to buy a stamp set. But if some/part of the greeting or verse is typeset differently – embellished first letter or different lines are different fonts, then I’m more likely to buy it.

  227. Peggy Pighetti says:

    Beautiful cards. I’m always looking for new sentiments. Love the beautiful paper.

  228. When picking out stamps I first think of how versatile the stamp is and how many different ways I can use it over and over again. Great card samples. And wonderful products. Thanks for the inspiration! Happy New Year!

  233. Karla P says:

    I look for clear stamp sets that include floral or design with coordinating dies and sentiments to make a complete card. I prefer inspirational sentiments and those with scripture verses. Sometimes I look for sets that coordinate with ones that I already have. Sometimes I prefer something unique that catches my eye.

  234. I look for stamp sets that are cute and can be used for many different kinds of cards. 🙂

  235. Stacey Kowbel says:

    When shopping for stamps, I love cute animals that are somewhat realistic, but cartoonlike at the same time. And sentiments. I love fun sentiments and handwritten sentiments.

  256. Annette Reed says:

    I look at different things when deciding which stamps to buy. I look for ease and versatility: do they have coordinating dies? Can I use them for different types of cards?
