So whats your favorite brand of clear stamps? There definitely IS a difference (I always thought it was user error). I'm looking for good quality polymer stamps. Papertrey Ink is one of my favorites but I'm looking for more "cutesey" images. Thanks!

I like the Fiskars, G-Studios, and CTMH brands. I may have some other brands around here somewhere, but I've yet to find one that I do not like.

Most of mine are Autumn Leaves and Technique Tuesday---but I do have a gorgeous set of flourishes by Anna Griffin.

Sassafras Lass and October Afternoon often have clear stamps that go with their lines, and they're on the "cute" end of the spectrum.

I've gone back to rubber stamps lately, buying unmounted ones that don't take up as much room as wood-mounted ones.

I have a TON of Technique Tuesday, Daisy Bucket Designs and Autumn Leaves. But, I tend to go for the Technique Tuesday ones first.

jennifer, i can tell you the brand when I am home later but the ones I don't like
fall off the acrylic block (it's soooo frustrating)!
and I have 4 packages of them. I should have guess there was a problem when Michaels closed out the brand dirt cheap.

Some of the early Inkadinkado clear stamps were so thin that you couldn't separate them from each other - they just tore apart. They seem to have improved in the last year or so.

I really like my CTMH clear stamps. They seem to be good quality, stamp clear images and they are consistant about sticking to the block. When I went to my first CTMH party I was skeptical because I had never seen clear stamps before! I have an alpha set that I got at HL (don't remember the brand) but it STINKS! It was so hard to pull the stamp off of the clear sheet and once I did it wouldn't stick to anything...not back to the sheet or to the block.

Since we are talking stamps, are there any stamps out there of just faces (i.e. happy, sad). For example, if I make a paper doll, is there a stamp I could use to make the doll a smiley face?

I think Peachy Keen makes face stamps. I was looking at them the other day to go with the Paper Doll Cricut cartridges that I ordered.

CTMH is my favourite, followed by Hero Arts. I tried Paper Studio because I loved the images, but the stamps were so squishy that I couldn't get a crisp image.

I have lots of CTMH, too. I also really like Technique Tuesday and Prima. I love the vintage sets from Crafty Secrets.
I've actually started acquiring more cling mounted rubber stamps. They give such sharp images. I love Unity and Tim Holtz.
Yeah, I just love stamps.

I have never really used stamps. I'm just now getting into them. Are the ones that are at Michaels bad stamps or am I okay buying those?

I personally love Stampendous. But that's only because they have the Changito monkey and he is just absolutely adorable for my little boys.
I like the designs for Studio G but their images aren't very crisp. But for a dollar, they work quite nicely.
I really like Hero Arts but I agree with Momany. I am in love with cling rubber stamps. They are the best of both worlds!

Papertrey Ink is my favourite brand but be forewarned they are expensive and addictive. I also love Tim Holtz cling rubber stamps and 7 Gypsies as well.
