As with pretty much everything, this depends on so many things - are you scrapping or making cards or both? Do you scrap children or pets or recipes or travel or something else? Do you have a specific style? Do you journal a lot?

Personally, I like stamps with lines for journaling, and stamps with word definitions on them, and stamps with non-cartoony rabbits on them. Obviously that's not for everybody - not everybody journals as much as I do; if they do, maybe they can keep straight lines better than I can; not everybody loves words and definitions as much as I do; not everybody is scrapbooking about a pet rabbit. I also typically prefer stamps with a more realistic style, but lots of people prefer a more whimsical or playful style. What I like best isn't necessarily what will work best for you.

Thank You ladies I was looking for a journal stamp and I love to work with flowers. I have never really used stamps so I'm not sure what type I would want to use, I am going to have to go look around at the craft store. Thank you again have a great day.

My best advice would be to buy stamps that have reuse value! Right now all of my stamps are alphabet/flourishes/butte rflies/calendar dates. I'd like to get some journaling stamps with the lines, just a matter of finding them at a good price. (Okay, just a matter of me being lazy) If you see a stamp that costs $15 but you can only ever see using it on one layout or card or whatever you're making, maybe it's not worth the money! I love the clear stamps because they don't create a clutter and are really customizable and easy to clean!

Journaling and letter stamps are a must. Also, I prefer to use pigment ink. When I first started using stamps, I bought dye-based ink. The color of the ink looked off on colored and patterned paper.
