Hero Arts Birds and Branch Rubber Stamp


Ok, My husband and I had a wonderful dinner conversation tonight over Sushi. Our one and a half year old son was singing away happily to the restaurant's background music, so it was an ideal opportunity to chat adult business.

He asked me a very simple question, but one that was very, very hard to answer. He asked "So Heidi, .....what is your favorite stamp of all time?"

WOW! That is such a loaded question! Do you know what I mean? I couldn't even answer at first. There are so many stamps that we have in our store that I just LOVE LOVE LOVE...I mean, that is why we sell most of our rubber stamps - because we LOVE them! It's like choosing a favorite between children or pets..."IMPOSSIBLE TO CHOOSE!" I told him

So, today I am going to tell you what my favorite stamp of TODAY is. It may change tomorrow, it may change even before I go to sleep tonight.

Today's favorite stamp is BIRDS AND BRANCH by Hero Arts.


Jennifer McGuire used the stamp to make this wonderful card above. The stamp is so versatile and interesting. It's rare that one can stamp with ONE stamp and get such a party of images! Sheri Reguli made these cards below using the same stamp!


Now I pose the question to you my dear friend, "what is your favorite stamp?" You don't need to tell me your favorite stamp of all time, just your favorite stamp (or SET of stamps) of today will do! *BLOG CANDY ALERT!* Please comment below to tell us what is your favorite of today or of all time. We will have a random drawing later in the week to announce a winner for $25 in your choice of products from www.SimonSaysStamp.com.

In the meantime, happy stamping! and shhhhh....don't tell my other babies that tonight for one brief moment ....I had a favorite...... ;)

  10. You are funny. And I couldn't agree more with your comment. My "favorite stamp of the day", and you should know, that it absolutely, unequivocally, changes every day...is The tier of cupcakes from H & M Stamps...especially with my glitter pen.

    thanks for a chance!

If I am in a slump I pull that baby out and everything is ok again. My current favorite stamp though is the changito monkey with the banana on his head.

  41. GRUFFIES! Any of them are my favorites right now since I love bears. I just got two new ones this week (Bedtime Story & Lavender Bouquet) and can't wait to play!

  42. Picking a favorite is so hard. I would probably say the set Frosty from SU. I pick that for two reasons: it was the first set I bought from SU and I have used the snowflake & happy holidays from it for so many different cards through the years.
