I subscribe to all three kits from SC, so I get a lot of stamps from them. My first language isn't english, so I don't use english sentiment stamps that much. I design stamps in norwegian myself, so when there is something I'm missing, I asume someone else needs it to and just make one :-P

Other than that I have had loads of stamps from Unity, they are great quality :-)
Tim Holtz is a given
I love Kraftin Kimmie stamps, but they are for coloring and cards.
Kaiser Craft have some great background stamps that are really cheap. I don't know about long term quality, but the price makes them a great buy however long they last.
I also like Prima Marketing for stamps. They are good for backgrounds and such :-)

I love the look of Avry Elle and Mama Elephant, but because of the language they are not an option. i might buy some sets just for the icons, they are so cute!
I don't mind fuzzy cutting, but don't get me started on watching glue dry!

Most of my stamps are Lawn Fawn. 

I also have handfuls of Hero Arts, Simon Says Stamp, and Mama Elephant.

Like many of you, I started with Stampin Up and still love them! I have a little of everything and tons of others! I am a huge fan of Papertrey Ink. I love their style  :)

Almost exclusively Stampin' Up!, as I'm a demo. However...that's not the only reason! What's not to love about our stamps and now that we've ventured into photopolymer, it's even better.  my collection at home also includes many brands, but the only clear stamps i'll every buy must be photopolymer.....the cheap silicone ones and whatever else they make them from in china, or wherever won't see my studio! happily all photopolymer stamps (to my knowledge) are made in the U.S., which is something I love! :)


create a beautiful life!

I started off with Gina K, then moved on to Stampin up. Recently I've been on a lawn fawn and Taylored Expressions kick. There are some Hero Arts I like, but they are wood blocks and storage is an issue for me.

I have quite a bit of stamps.  My favorite are Ali Edwards sentiment/word stamps for PL and I buy from various manufactures (Avery Elle) sentiments for card making.

I have a lot of Studio Calico as I subscribe to their kits but I also like Mama Elephant, Technique Tuesday and Lawn Fawn.

For images, my favorite is The Greeting Farm.

Technique Tuesfay. I am bummed Alie E is no longer partnering with them. I also like lawn fawn but their look is a bit too specific sometimes. I don't have any mama elephant or simon days stamp but I like their style.

Stampers Anonymous - cling rubber (Tim Holtz mostly, but a few Wendy Vecchi)

CTMH - clear

Hero Arts (rubber or clear)

Heidi Swapp (clear)

 

Was not a 2peas purchaser very much (nor forums at all), but I did get a clear stamp set there that I love, designed by Shimelle.  Sentiments like: Seriously?

I like the Stamps of Life stamps from Stephanie Barnard. Most have interchangeable parts, so the saying that fits inside an object can be used with another set and will fit. She tries to coordinate her sets so they can easily be used with other sets and nothing is out of proportion.

Lawn Fawn hands down. I just love the critters and the puns and building scenes. I'd say 75% of my stamps are used for card making. I also like The Stamps of Life by Stephanie Bernard.

I love PaperTrey and Penny Black. I used to demo for both SU and CTMH (but not at the same time) so have a ton of those that I still love and use too. Right now, I'm on a stamp buying moratorium since I have so many though.

NEVER actually paid attention - I like the red rubber stamps you can get at the conventions & at the "garage sales" at stamp stores. I don't really care for clear stamps, especially Martha Stewart's. They're just awful.

Annie, yes,I agree! Martha's stamps are horrible. I think it's because they are acrylic and not photopolymer. Most inks bead up on acrylic so the image is awful. I got rid of any acrylic stamps, but when I had some chalk ink worked best. Almost every known stamp company user photopolymer now a days.
