I want to spend some money and buy stamps! Nothing in particular, just designs that can be used repeatedly. Mainly for scrapbooking, but the odd card too.
Share your fav stamps with me!
Thanks!

I love love love outline stamps. They sell them at my LSS, but you can also get them online.

I have a vast collection of snag 'em stamps and stamp packages by Inkadinkado (from JoAnn's). Most of my stamps are clear acrylic. I used the polar bear below to make some of my Christmas cards last year.

I'm a big fan of Elisabeth Bell stamps (Whiff of Joy, Belles and Whistles), as well as Magnolia, House Mouse, Sugar Nellie, and Art Impressions.

I mostly stamp for cards, and my favorites are C.C. Designs, Kraftin' Kimmie, The Greeting Farm, and Pink Cat Studio. I just got a couple Love Lolitas, which I think are English, but All That Scraps started carrying them. They look like manga characters, and I'm so excited to have them.

Well, mine are all people or animals, so that's why I use them for cards (they're all in my gallery if you want a closer look); I can't see how to use them on a layout without it being too contrived. Although I did see a really cute page with a "card stamp" on it the other day:

Here are the stamps I use the most:

background - polka dot, crackle, filigree, harlequin

flourishes, butterfly outline, journaling blocks with lines, generic sentiments for cards

It kind of depends on your style so I looked at your gallery. (lovely, BTW!) You would probably use flowers and swirls/flourishes on your layouts.
Here are a few ideas.
I prefer unmounted rubber stamps for clear images but acrylics are easier to use because you can see where you are stamping.

yes, flourishes will definately go down well. but I am hoping to start card making too now cause my MIL has just skyped to say that she has bought me a selection of COPICS while on holiday in Canada!!!

I have only basic stamps because I don't stamp that often so I need stuff I can use everywhere! I would encourage you to get alpha stamps, flourishes, journaling stamps, and some sort of script or other patterned stamp. I have linked to a couple I like best.

I'm going to try to get some sayings for the inside of cards and some small words for the fronts of cards.

Hi Cica,

I just received my first order of stamps from Heartfelt creations. They have the most incredible selection of stamps and they only charge $8 shipping to South Africa.

Here's the link, I promise you're going to fall inlove with these. The precut sets are GORGEOUS. I ordered the swirly leaves (StarSailorScrapper uses them often of her LO's).
