Hi! My current most inked stamp set is from Saltbox Studio, Home Tweet Home! The stamps are birdhouses that you can hang on branches or trees, etc. Now wouldn't that monkey look darling hanging next to the stamp of the church birdhouse? heee heee

I have recently become addicted to Pink Cat Studio stamps. I just love Lily and Billy. I've got three kids (2 boys and 1 girl), so I use them alot!!

I love reading your blog. It's a nice treat during an otherwise dreary day!

jimlynn said...

I really like ALL my stamps.....and I seem to change "favorites" daily! Right now, I'm liking the Tart and Tangy from SU....also have CTMH stamps that I enjoy, and like all the "Bella" stamps as you can do so many fun things with them.
Art Impressions also has cute stamps....everyone in my family likes getting the "funny" cards.
Thanks, Lynn

I am sooo loving the Bella stamps! oH but I have been using my Queenie stamp that says "cleaning sucks"
LOVE IT!
thanks...

Lori said...

Cuuuute! I don't have any monkey stamps. My brother and sister-in-law did their newborn son's room in a jungle theme and they're crazy about monkeys.
My favorite stamp set is probably Baroque Motifs.

Sally (Oregon) said...

Great husband story! My kids call the people from the blogs I visit my "pretend stamping friends"! I am loving any cupcake stamp right now. They always turn out so stinkin' cute!

cricketpe said...

Aww, I love the monkey

I am new into stamping, so I haven't used enough to have a favorite yet. However, though I don't own any, I love all the papertrey stamps; they look so cute! I have some coming in the mail right now; I can't wait to try them out :)

Tamara Follett said...

Ooooooo....I want Changito the monkey! I think my favorites right now are SU's short & sweet and Stampendous's Bees. So cute!

Denise... said...

I don't think I can pick a very favorite...I love MFT, Stampendous, AMuse...and I LOVE some flowers I got from Purple Onion. And I REALLY want that monkey!!!

scfranson said...

My favorite stamp set is a set I don't even own yet...Lovely As A Tree by Stampin Up, but since I don't have it yet the one I use the most is my Thinking of you stamp from Inkadinkado because I make hundreds of cards for cardsforheroes.org

I am totally biased towards Stampin' Up stamps! My favorite sets are Wild About You, Priceless, Garden Whimsy, Pun Fun, Sweet Shapes, and Fun & Fast Notes. :)

Suzanne J Dean said...

I really love Stamping Bella "bellas" & all of Pink Cat Studio stamps. Fun to look at & fun to color!

Rather than a particular "brand" of stamps, I like really cute ones. Like long legged chicks, Santas or Snowmen. Or funky animals with really cute faces. And I like simple flowers that are easy to cut out.
Thanks for your ideas.

Time To Myself said...

Although clear stamps are my favorite to use, I haven't found a company that beats SU so I use those unmounted. My fave SU set right now is Time Well Spent, although I don't own it. I think it's a gorgeous set and I love every card I've seen.

Anonymous said...

My favourite (okay it's the Canadian way to spell it, eh) stamp set is Seaside Sketches from Stampin' Up. I also love my Bellas....although I only have a few of them, they are fun to work with.

Cheers!

Beth Redding said...

These are so cute! I don't know if I could possibly pick a favorite stamp or set. I love my SU stamps (don't own many that are not SU). I think the Zoofari set is tops on my cute list right now.
Blessings,
Beth

Krista said...

Monkeys! How cute, I have a couple of crazy monkeys at my house in the form of two girls.
My favorite stamp set would have to be Embrace Life, I saw it at just the right time and knew I had to have it. (My brother-in-law recently passed away from brain cancer, and I used that set for thank you notes.)

Betty in MI said...

This is a retired SU! set but I just love Wonderful Wings. The butterflies are so beautifully detailed. Works great for girly or guy cards.

Tina said...

I feel like it depends on the season, right now I like anything with flowers, but during the winter I love my "I like it a latte" and my Christmas stamps from SU, I also love to browse the $1 stamps at Michaels, everyone loves a bargain! Have a GREAT day!
Tina

Harriet Skelly (SCS hskelly) said...

Wow having to decide on favorite stamps is really hard - it used to be Fluffles from Stampendous but latly I have been getting only acryolic stamps so I'd have to say PaperTrey and Verve Visual and Inkadinkado are my favorites.

grrr said...

My favorites SU set is Best Blossoms.
You can make any type of card with it. But that monkey is so cute. I'd love to use it with Wild about You. That's my only baby/kids set.
Gayle

Miriam said...

There are so many wonderful stamps, it is hard to choose a favorite. Right now, I would say that The Clear Art Stamps from Crafty Secrets are among my favorite. I love anything vintage, feminine, or detailed. I am very partial to monkeys too. When my daughter was 3 or 4, she had a toy monkey that she truly loved. She decided to marry the monkey so we held a wedding for them, complete with a decorated tiered banana wedding cake with toasted coconut accents. Her grandmother and great grandmother were also involved with the preparations. It was only fitting, as I "married" a rabbit when I was that age. The monkey brings back good memories.

Thanks for the chance to win the cute monkey stamp!!!

Dawn Mercedes said...

Oooh...what a great monkey. I'd love to have that to use for my youngest "monkey." haha.

My favorite SU set is Natural Beauty b/c I have probably make the most lovely cards with it, personally. I seem to like some set, then if I get it...it doesn't click with me. Or I don't get it...and then I am kicking myself for NOT getting it. Though, truth be told, I have been able to get a few of those retired "of course NOW I really know I want it" sets!

Stephanie Fitch said...

My favorite favorite favorite stamp set is Garden Whimsy by SU!

I ABSOLUTELY love it!

Have great day and I'll be checking in tomorrow to see the GRAND PRIZE!

You are so awesome to do this! I read your blog everyday even when you aren't giving away FREE COOL stuff!

HAVE A STAMPENDOUS DAY!

Nancy said...

Such a cute monkey!
My favorite stamps right now are my Elzybells. Those little girls are just too adorable. Since I come from a family of eight girls...they get inked up quite often.

De said...

Wow, its hard to narrow down but I am drawn to alot of sets with flowers... I love acrylix. I love Paper Trey’s Out on a Limb… that has to be one of my all time favorites. And I love stamps with greetings and sayings…

JoAnna Goodman said...

I've always enjoyed Papertrey's stamps, but right now, I would have to say that I love Riley the Moose!

Thanks for the chance at your candy!

Cheryl said...

Oh my goodness, I have too many favorites. I love TAC stamps, SU stamps, and have you seen Inque Boutique stamps? Love them all. These little Stampendous monkeys are adorable too. Thanks. What a wonderful week!!
Cheryl Sims

Tammy said...

Wow!!! That's alot of hits!! I think I'm half of those--I come here so often to CASE your projects!! You are soooooo talented! Thanks for sharing that talent with us!!

Sarah said...

MONKEYS!!! Oh how I love thee! Such a lil cutie.. or atleast I like to think so because my mom always calls me her monkey since I use to love to climb tree when I was little.

My favorite stamps are from Hambo.. they are so cute and hand drawn by the owner himself and his wife creates the sayings. Gotta love that!

-Sarah Bolt

Valarie said...

Love the monkey! I haven't stamped in awhile, but the set that I always seem to go back to is SU! All in the family. I do most things for the kids or something to do with my kids so that is why I use it alot.

Laura (tweetyb) said...

This is a wierd one for me because it is a sentiment stamp set but I even leave on my table because I use it SO much.....SU Tiny Talk!

I am just branching out to other companies and like GinaK and PaperTrey!!

thanks for the chance to win a changito! he's too cute. :)

Pam Clay said...

I think my fav stamps are SU's two step stamps. There is just something about the depth of their design. But I would definately NOT turn down this little monkey! Thanks for the chance of winning!

I don't have a fav. I like any with a doll on them

I'm a big Stampendous fan as well, I love their stuff.

I also have found a new stamp co. and am loving their images www.stampotique.com You can check out some of their images that I've gotten on my blog if you like.

Priscilla said...

Hi! Let's see my favorite retired set is Dreams and Dragons from Stampin' Up! but my favorite current set is One of a Kind also from Stampin' Up! Thanks for the great giveaways and inspiring creations!

~*Priscilla*~

Yvonne said...

My favorite stamp set current is Priceless from SU!. My favorite retired sets are Looks Like Spring and Crayon Kids!!

Karin said...

Right now I'm addicted to my JustRite Monogram Stamper so I guess that is my favorite :)

In general though my favorites are simple stamps that pop but require little work to get them to do so!

Amy said...

I just got blossoms about my SU yesterday and inked it already and LOVE it! Lilacs are my favorite and I think they are supposed to be lilacs. I am a demo for SU and love their stamps but I love clear stamps too. I have been really impressed with Verve Visual and like the sets I've purchased. I have also fallen in love with the monkies from Clear Dollar Stamps and they make great quality stamps and a GREAT price. (I sound like an ad!) One of my favorite stamps of all time though is one of the first I bought from Magenta. It is a tree but instead of leaves blowing off, little hearts are. I love it.

Anyway, you are giving away some awesome stuff! Hope to win something.

I have Blog Candy too until Monday. Come check it out!!

AlexsMom said...

My favorite stamp is from Amuse - it is the rock star. I have a little boy 7 years old who loves music and plays guitar and rock band. It reminds me of him. However I really love the Stampin Up stamps and the Hero Arts stamps as well. I would love to win the monkey stamp! I have called my little boy a monkey since he was little. He was always climbing on something mostly on my back!from Stampin Up favorite stamps.

Pam from Newfoundland

Brenda said...

My favorite stamp set right now is Embrace life from Stampin' Up. I have to admit that there are so many stamps that I love it is so hard to pick just one. I love the monkeys as well and just got my first one thanks to my Mom. Thank you for the chance to win.

Hands down my Riley moose....my sister lives in Alaska and I love making moose cards for her :)

Teolinda said...

My all-time favorite stamp is the porcupine by Stamps by Judith. He is just so darn cute! I like him because I can stamp and emboss him on kraft paper and I'm DONE. Or I can go all out and stamp on white card stock and then color him in. I've used a variety of other stamps with him such as bunny ears for Easter, a small present for a birthday card, a flower for a "just because" card, etc. I even used a popcorn box clipart image that he held for a card that was sent with a package of microwave popcorn.

Margaret S said...

What a CUTE blog candy set. Who would ever think, Monkeys can be - CUTE?!?!?!

Your question is a tough one, today. (How much space do I have, to post my answer???) Honestly - I have no idea. Yesterday, my favorite was, Live Your Dreams (SU! Occasions - mini). On Monday is was, Embrace Life (SU!). Last week is was, Women of Life (Papertrey Ink). Today - it's ALL of the sets I mentioned. If, I had to narrow that all down, I'd have to say - I love CUTE. I love, any and all CUTE sets.

Tara Macfarlane said...

Hi again Rochelle, I have to say I love Stampin' Up! stamps, and not just because I'm a demo. I find they are really sturdy, they stand up to little hands. Depending on what I'm stamping would depend on my favorite stamps. One of my all time favorites is In Full Bloom. There are no girls in this family so if I get a chance to stamp something girly, I always go for that set! Thanks again for offering such great blog candy!

Brenda said...

Oh, what sweet candy...I could SO use some new rubbah!! And I could really use some fun stamps!! 'Not sure it's my favorite, but my most used stamp set right now is "Bundle of Joy"...everyone just keeps having babies!!
~Brenda H.

otagogirl said...

Mostly, I'm an SU girl, but I really like art line stamps, because I love to colour. I adore the Thomas Kinkade stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms, they are colouring to the max! CHF also have some really nice vintage look stams in their Signature series.
I'd love this little monkey, though- my 9 yo DD is a monkey and ladybug fanatic, and I don't have a monkey stamp yet (got a few ladybugs, though!). AND I can colour in this stamp, too! Perfect!

Karen.

Anonymous said...

Hi Rochelle, I to love these cute stamps, but must say me favorite and most used stamp set I own has to be Stampin Up's Lovely As a Tree. Thanks again,

Niki said...

This is a hard question because my favorite seems to depend on my mood on a particular day. I really like the acrylic birthday set by Doodlebug, Inc. I can emboss the images on colored cardstock or jazz it up with Art Glitter. Thanks again for all of the fun blog candy!

Niki in IL

Deb Neerman said...

Omigosh, it's practically impossible to pick just one company!

I love different stamp companies for different reasons, lol; clear as mud, huh?!?

But, if I must choose just one, I'll pick Cornish Heritage Farms. They have everything you could want in one place ... including supplies. Their backgrounder's are incredible and I adore Kim Hughes' collections!

So, I guess I could pick just one, LOL!

Thanks for the chance!

Holly Harris said...

I love A Muse stamps... any and all... I just got one that says "[got margaritas]" and I love it! so fun to make cards with it to send to friends!

OH that monkey is too cute!
Like many of your stalkers, my favorite's change frequently, but right now I would say I am in love with my 'bella's' but any SU is always a favorite also!!
thanks for the chance to win big!!

Kirsten said...

So cute, I have been looking at those monkeys from stampendous for quite some time I just have somehow not been able to actually purchase them.

It is so hard to label something as my favortie stamp as I seem to like them all (which really gets me into trouble). If I go by used the most often recently it is the just celebrate stamp set from the current SU mini catty.

Thanks again for the awesome blog full of inspiration.

chinamomxtwo said...

wow , like others sort of hard to answer--I have too many fave's--but I guess right now, I've put most of them aside, and have been stamping with my bellas.........too much damn fun!
Thanks for the chance to win!

aahahah I'm SUCH a knuckle-head......I have been blurfing SO much lately (blog-surfing...get it), that I got you mixed up w/ someone else who is also giving away blog candy for her birthday, and that is why I said Happy Birthday......well, your b-day isn't THAT far off.....so I'll say it anyway!!!

How fun! I still have a lot of Stampin Up sets, my most recent was Loads of Love. Now I need to buy the accessories. I just bought my first Close to My Heart set, I think if was called Floral Kids. Thanks for the chance to win.

Katherine Walcott said...

I confess that I'm not a monogomous stamper. I can't help it, I love whatever stamp set I'm using at the time. Currently, I'm having a love affair with Tart and Tangy. But, soon I'll grow board and have to move on for a more exciting affair. I'm afraid I will never be able to settle down with just one set. I'm doomed to an unfaithful stamping existence. Thanks for the chance to win this great blog candy! Uh oh, I just got a glimpse of a Bee Buddy on my shelf.

wanda said...

Love the monkey stamps. Thanks for a week of fun and again, chance to win such great blog candy. My favorite stamp is SU Petal Prints.

Regina Cornelius said...

well....i would have to say that i don't have a favorite, per say...but i love stampendous bees...so this chantigo the monkey would be a great addition to my stampendous collection of three stamps :)

The B8S said...

I have to say I have always loved Wild About You! Aren't those animals cute and you can do so much with them.

I love checking out your blog and seeing what's new. You have so many great ideas! Thanks for sharing.

wendy peatross said...

Right now my favorite stamps are anything I can color with my copic markers. These are the cutest stamps. My DD would love them!!

Cindy said...

I can't name a favorite right now. I have too many that haven't seen ink yet. I tend to reach for my Gina K stamps more than any. I am starting to gather Dog stamps, as my son has a new puppy, Great Dane, and I've seen lots of cute dog stamps.

Allison Lee said...

What a CUTE monkey!!!
My fave stamp company next to SU is PAPERTREY INK. I really like all the mini sayings... they are so versatile and work for SOOOOO many occasions.
I have also been using a lot of sets that feature 2 step stampin'.

Thanks for the chance!

I "think" I know what the blog candy for tomorrow, at least I hope it's the big thing that starts with "C", the one I have been dreamed to get....wait, not the question you asked for this blog candy? Oops! : )
I can't pick up just one favorite stamp set, it's just too hard....I do like "Priceless", "Carte Postale" & "In the Stars" (all from SU!), do you have them? Show us your creative work!

Sandra Smart said...

Well, I have lots of SU and Angel comp stamps, some new acrylics from Hero arts and fiskars, but I must say, I just received some stamps in the mail from Rubbernecker Stamps and I loved the way they came already trimmed. I am also a fan of papertrey ink...have a few of those sets and love them.
Sorry, nothing funny here, too quiet and shy! :)

Anonymous said...

I am a SU girl all the way! Although, I think this monkey is too cute. I am not sure what my favorite SU set is, maybe Wild About You.

I like all of my stamps and my friends' stamps, too! My family and non-stamping friends think I'm a little crazy, but it's funny how they love it when I make them cute stuff. Hmmm...one of my favorite companies is savvy stamps. Their stamps are cute because they're small AND they're funny...like the one that says "wish BIG" with an image of a bra. :) Thanks for having great giveaways!

jonbonjovious said...

Wow! This is just so much fun! You're awesome to share your passion for scrappin' in such a stellar and unique way! THANK YOU!

I am relatively new to the stamp scene. Oh, y'know years ago I went to a couple stampin' up parties and it was cool, but I didn't do much with them...then I discovered My Favorite Things! They have a stamp called "can ya dig it?" and within me, a stamper was born!

"Can ya dig it?" features a woman in a floppy hat on her knees gardening. It has a wheel barrow, a watering can, a rabbit, a pot, carrots, seed packets and cute sayings like, "Let's Dish the Dirt" (perfect for that handwritten note that tells your friend far away how much you miss them and what's happening). "Can Ya Dig It?", "It's Fun to Get Dirty" (okay, what Mom can't use this? Seriously.) and "You are My Sunshine" cliched and cheesy...agreed, but useful. And my all time favorite "Life is in Full Bloom"...perfect for a card or tag for a new baby, a new home, a straight A report card...all those things that make Life grand.

Ooops, I guess I got a little carried away! I just really, really love this stamp set!!!

Allison said...

Gosh...I used to worry that I was always finding blog candy first...now I worry that I always find it last...ha ha! Cheers Rochelle...you have great taste!

Sara Harris, TN said...

Oh, it is a jungle out there! Today was the last day of school, and for the first time in thirteen years of teaching, I actually had to send a student to the office...on the last day!!! But that has nothing to do with stamps...my fav today is the set "Embrace Life" from Stampin' Up! But who am I kidding??? I love them all!

My favorite stamp set currently is Stampin Up's Stiched Exotics. It is so fun for summer.

jmniffer said...

My favorite seems to be the one I just ordered and haven't recieved yet! LOL, really it seems to change by the day. Right now I really like solid stamps but that can change in the blink of an eye. Thanks for the chance to win the very cute monkey and saying! jmniffer

I really love all of Penny Black Stamps. Especially her little creatures. House of Mouse runs a very close second.
Thanks for all of the chances for your great blog candy and your great ideas.

Chrissy D said...

Do we have to pick only ONE!? Eek - let's see - I LOVE Scripture Stamps and probably use The Encouragement stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy stamps right now - but I also have been enjoying some of those moose Riley stamps, although I do not have any. LOL I looked at these stamps last week at the LSS - think they are too cute.

Anonymous said...

I haven't been stamping long and don't have many stamps but really like birds, floral and nature stamps.

Been working out in my flower beds the last two weeks and having been stamping much-that will change after I get rid of the weeds!!

Theresa said...

Your excitement is so infectious. I love it. Most of my stamps are from Stampin' Up. I have a few from Stampendous and one from Hero Arts. I really like all three companies, but right now Embrace Life (SU) is my fave. I don't actually have that set, but my mom and sister both have it, so I can use it from time to time.

Jenn2110 said...

Trying to narrow down favorite stamps is really tough...but I'll try. Most of my stamps are from Stampin Up. I do a stamp club with Amy (Zoe's Creation)and I've been slowly adding to my collection. I like Garden Whimsey and Time Well Spent. But, like I said, it's so hard to pick a favorite. Thanks again.

NancyJo (turkey1969) said...

My favorite stamp set has to be Watercolor Garden II from SU. Or at least that's what I think it's called... I'm afraid to go to my stamp room to verify that for fear I'll be pulled in to make something and I really need to sleep instead.
Thanks for the chance on the monkey! What a cute stamp!

Anonymous said...

HI Rochelle, Doris from Onsted, MI. I have recently become addicted to Penny Blacks critters they are too cute. But my favorite set at the moment is SU's Priceless. Have a great day!

I really like the polymer stamps by Autumn Leaves...I have several flower sets that I use a lot.

Elsa Limas said...

I LOVE all my Bellas.
From SU I have being making cards with my Embrace Life stamp set.

Elaine said...

There are so many favorites these days! I would love to see something made with the Clear dollar stamps from Michael's!! Not many of those being shown in blogs, yet when I do see one it is almost always a gem!

Thank you for offering fun blog candy!

Have a great weekend!
hugs,

Michelle said...

To choose just ONE that I love?? WOW, that's kinda tough Rochelle! Narrowing it down, the one I would reach for the very most at the moment would have to be the So Swirly Wheel (guess it's ok to be a wheel??) from SU. LOVE LOVE LOVE this wheel.
Thanks, and what a great idea.
Take care.

You can tell by looking at my blog that I favor Flourishes Stamps...I just love them all! Your ideas are always great Rochelle! You are probably the "best" at the altered items that you make!

Dawn Thomas said...

I could never pick just one fav!! That's like saying I could only have one flavor of ice cream!! My most "inked" stamps would be all Stampin' Up! - True Friend, Noble Deer and Baroque Motifs!!! Those are my trusty "go-to" stamps if I'm ever in a pinch!

I have been purchasing some Amuse stamps lately. I always like Fluffles or anything cats because my daughter is obsessed with them :)

Rochelle: Thanks again for the blog candy this week, it's been fun! My favorite set is Abundant Joy, even though it's retired. LOVE IT! My favorite current set is Pun Fun, cause it's too cute! Have a wonderful day!

Lets see. I am new to all this so, out of the ones I have. I would have to say my Merci set from SU. I really love this set.

Hello again Rochelle. My favorite stamps right now are cupcake stamps. A client of mine is having a cupcake promotion in her store and recently ordered a dozen cards with this theme - boy was I excited! I have a set from Hero Arts, Stampendous and Inkadoo. I wish Stampin' Up would come out with some acrylic sets - I know they say the image isn't as good, but I haven't been able to tell the difference yet...Have a good weekend! - Kristin, IL

My favorite stamp set? That's a hard one. I just got back into stamping after a 7 month creative block and am seeing the stamps I have in a whole new light--even wondering why I even bought some of them because I don't like them!

The latest stamp set that I have been using a lot is SU!'s Watercolor Garden. I just made 5 sets of cards using that stamp set to give to my youngest DD's communication class teachers and her preschool teachers.

I really like the Baroque Motifs lately. I love your blog and have gotten many great ideas from it. Thanks for sharing your work.

Favorite set or company, hmmm. Let's see - I would have to say that I am really taken with the sets that have been recently released from Gina K Designs. My fav SU! set is Favorite Teddy Bear - I use him for every birthday card I make.

I used to stamp all the time before #2 that was 8years ago. I have recently got back into stampin, scrappin. I really like stampin up. That being said I have this cool stamp from 10years ago with no company name on it. It is of a woman hugging the sun. with stars around her. If I ever get another tattoo she will be it. (is that copyright infringment LOL) Great blog I'll be by to STALK you tomorrow!!!!!!!haha

cyndi said...

hmmm i love the boho stuff from SU! it is hard to pick a favorite but most of my stamps are SU! I love the hanna stamps and the bellas too! but i dont have any!

Jennifer Orbaker said...

Since I am a SU Demo, most of my favorites are SU. But I have recently fell in love with My Favorite Things, I have a few of their sets. And of course I fell in love with Bella, so I have a few of her too. Mini-Van Bella is my most used one at the moment. Been making some cards to just say hello to some of my mommy friends that I've lost touch with lately.

K Kreations said...

Hello! I'm new to all of this. I love getting my updates everyday. I'm so excited in the morning, I get to check the e-mail an then I'm awed again! I've been so inspired by a lot of your work. You are so talented and kind to share with everyone!
Thanks so much! I'm a 39 year old mom of two great kids, a daugter 12 and a son 4. Like I said, I'm new to this so when the kids are off to school, that is my playtime! I am a new hobby SU demonstrator, I think all SU stamps are fun, it is hard to choose -- I love the kids' sets a lot and I think one of my favorite flower sets is Embrace Life! I guess those words are so inspirational for me reminding me everyday through good and bad to (love, laugh, and live) and "this too shall pass".
Well, thanks again for sharing!

Shelly OH said...

I love the baroque motifs stamp set the best. It seems to be the one I pick up to use all the time when making cards.
I would say lately I have started using the boho backgrounds stamp set more. Oh.....I love them all how can you pick just one when you have an addition -right?

Tiffany said...

I love Stampendous and SU!

Thanks for the chance to win these. They are so cute!!!

Shauna said...

Before I started "collecting" Stampin' Up! sets, my favorites were Penny Black stamps--mostly the hedgehogs, but all the animals are cute! I can't choose a favorite from SU!, though I like flowers, anything patriotic, and baby and kids themed ones! I also love those Stampendous Bees and these monkeys!! Thank you for such fun blog candy!! .....and for sharing your creativity!!

PatsyB said...

This is so much fun! It's like a birthday but you don't have to tell your age!!
Thanks for all this fun! It's been great!

Hi Rochelle, Christa from AR again, I got on earlier today, didn't want to be as late as I was yesterday, but my husband got on the computer yesterday and stayed and stayed and stayed.... like he didn't know how important this is to me. He is another one who just don't get it. My favorite stamp or stamp set is always the one I just bought, until I buy another one. I love all my flowers, don't have too many animals, but I love my hedge hogs. Thanks for everything you are doing for your friends out here, have a good day,
Christa

Leah said...

But I love ALL of my stamps! (I know, everyone says that) I really love A Muse stamps...I think their expressions are clever with images to match. I've also seen these adorable monkey stamps & have to agree that they are awesome too!

Wanda said...

Hi girl, this is Wanda from NC. One of my favorite stamps right now is the new one that Gina K put off (Melanie designed) - can't remember the name but it is with the giraffee and hippo. Course I've seen others they have now that I love - especially the beautiful cards others are making with them. I love that you can give animal stamps names and I love "animal stamps". Love this little give away you have with the monkey and the saying. So, here's to hoping I win. Have a great day!

I love the monkeys and so does my granddaughter. This is one I don't have. Sherry Yeager

Dawn said...

I love so many SU! stamps but have been admiring those Bellas and Changito!!! The more I see him, the more I want him. Thanks!

Traci said...

I had no clue how many stamp companies there is, I guess I'm the girl we should call lost in the Wasington Rain.......I love the monkey stamps, My sister teaches pre-school and her class is called the monkeys. Thank you again for the joy you bring to my day each day when I log on and find the gift of the day...

Shona said...

How did I miss doing this yesterday! I love these little monkeys too!

Diane said...

I guess my favorite stamps are flower stamps since about 3/4 of my stamps have flowers on them. My most favorite of all is Art of Life by SU. I reach for that one over and over again and I am never disappointed in the way it turns out.

Kim said...

I have so many favorite stamps, but if I had to pick, I would say Bella stamps. I seem to use them the most. Kim

Michelle said...

My favorite stamp...hmmm...that's a hard one! I have a lot of favorites that I don't actually *own* cause I'd go broke buying everything I wanted!! But my 2 favorites lately are Tart & Tangy from SU! and Limitless Labels from Papertrey Ink. And tomorrow it might be something new :)

Amber said...

Can't say that I have a particular favourite, but I do love and can't resist Christmas themed stamps, especially snowmen. This monkey set is awfully cute though ;)

Jennifer said...

I do love SU stamps but I don't have a favorite. There are too many to choose from. I love background stamps and sayings, you never have too many of those!
Thanks for your great blog.

Heather said...

My favorite stamps right now are anything Inkadinkado, but I pretty much love all!

Right now my favorite stamp is Baroque Motifs from Stampin' Up. I have used it to make so many teacher gifts that are really coming in handy right now. I do love your little monkey stamp and how fun that would be to create some cards with him. Maybe it will be my lucky day:)

Kathi said...

I love Penny Black stamps...so fun to color. I just purchased my first Papertrey stamp set---Mailbox Greetings. Love Love Love all of Nichole's stamps. I WILL have more!!

Margaret said...

I have several stamps I like, but lately, it seems I'm always reaching for a clear acrylic paisley set from Stampabilities sold at Hobby Lobby. I've used it lately with a Versamark watermark stamp pad to make background paper to use on several greeting cards I've made. I love the tone-on-tone look I get using the watermark pad. The set has several different paisley designs in different sizes. I think it is a very versatile set and one you might like too! Love your blog and your creations. Keep up the good work!

I'm loving the Stampendous monkeys and was so excited to see this as blog candy. I LOVE the one with the monkeys making faces at each other. :)

Latisha said...

My favorite stamp set is probably Green Thumb from Papertrey ink. I love the swirl flourish from Baroque Motifs by SU. I know you said one, but I had to give my favorite clear & red rubber equal time >"<

K Kreations said...

Wow! This sure beats taking your bone folder and a cutter and lining it up yourself and hoping that the paper stays on the measurement! I've never seen one of these! How fantastic!
See, I learn things all the time, sure am glad to get the updates from your blog!
Thanks again for sharing!

kearneykrafter said...

Hello and loving this monkey! I currently do not own any monkey stamps, but they look like so much fun! I'd have to say that My fav stamp right now is the Pun Fun set. So versitle and can be unisex, which is hard to find sometimes! Thanks for the chance at great schtuff and way to go for your blogaversary!

Shannon Roberts said...

I am really in luv those monkey's right now!! The tire swing one is soooo cute!!! But, I had to pick a company well, SU! of course. With www.stampingbella.com ;as my second choice. And lastly I just learned of this new company & I believe thier stamps are the BOMB!!
http://www.denamidesign.com/new.html

Thanks again for these opportunities!

A said...

It is difficult to name a favorite. It is usually whichever one I am working with at the time. I don't have any that I don't like cause if I didn't like it I wouldn't have bought it. I can give you companies...SU, Bellas, elzybells, GinaK and the list goes on...

Nancy said...

Congrats on your 200,000 mark Rochelle..I subscribe to your blog so its fun to see what new and exciting projects you come up with. I have a box of pink tic tacs that I picked up from the .99cent store for .33 each and still haven't done a darn thing to them.

My favorite sets are mostly the animals... zoofari, crab and co., fishy friends and unfrogettable. They all have personalities, like my stampin' friends.

Anna said...

My grandson is in the Monkey room at preschool, so I have to love the Stampendous monkey stamps, but the SU! stamps are on the top of my favorite list.
Congrats from the great state of Minnesota.

Michelle said...

My favorite set right now, would be the Carte Postale from Stampin up. But, i also reach for the Loads of Love a lot too.

Kathy said...

OMG! I cannot believe that you are giving away some of the Changito stamps! I am so in LOVE with these little monkeys! I have become obsessed with them! LOL They are just too stinkin' cute!

Doris said...

One of my favorite stamp sets is the Hero Arts "Cat Portraits" (set of 4.) Next week, it could be something else though!

Amy said...

I love the Stampendous critters -- Changito and Fluffles. A Muse, Penny Black, and Stampin' Up are also favorites...

Thanks for sharing such fun stamps!

Paula said...

Rochelle, my current favorite that I have been using quite a bit lately is Mixed Messages by Papertey Ink because I love making little sentiment tags. Thanks for the chance to win this darling monkey!

Anonymous said...

Since I have just begun stamping, the first set I purchased is a 5 pack sentiment set... it is both functional and doable for this beginner! Without a doubt your monkey stamp is a winner! Again, thank you for the wonderful opportunities~ Me2

Favorite stamp? Ummmmm - maybe one of my very first ones. I saw this pig's face with a wreath around it. I had moved to Houston and one of the doctors I worked for decided I liked pigs since I was from Iowa. I saw that and thought that would make fun little To/From tags to go on all the little Christmas goodies I made.

Thanks for all your fun inspiration. Chris R.- Iowa

Sheila D said...

I'm in love with Crafty Secret stamps. They are so vintage but you can still stamp contemporary with them. They are fun & beautiful at the same time. I'm also having fun with Papertrey Inc. stamps. They are just so functional. I've been seing these changito monkeys around and I am so in LOVE with these little monkeys! Thanks for the chance at owning one.

ltrow36 said...

I haven't been stamping very long and if I had to pick one, it would be my only house mouse--graduation.

Pick one? That's really hard, but I think it would have to be House Mouse. I've been a fan of their's since before they came out with rubber stamps. Just love those cute little expressions. This little monkey would be such a cute addition to my collection.

Ret said...

You offer such fantastic blog candy! It's hard to narrow down a favorite cuz I luv them all. Guess I'll go with my newest stamp purchase, which is a Fluffles acrylic set for all seasons. I used it for the first time last night for my granddaughter's 2nd b-day...it was FUN, FUN, FUN:)
