Clearly the Best, and a Friday Freebie!

Friday, September 7, 2012

My favorite thing about clear stamps, and the reason I began stamping in the first place, is that I can see where I am stamping through the block. With wooden stamps, I could never line up images properly. CTMH has the best clear stamps on the market. I love that they are flexible, too. Thanks for the chance to win. :)

I love that the clear stamps make it easy for repositioning for double stamping. You can't do that with the wooden block stamps can you?

Thanks for the chance to win.

I love how CTMH stamps hold the ink on them until you are ready to stamp. I have gone back to my rubber ones occasionally and have tried other brands of clear stamps - they just don't have that nice crisp inky look that CTMH stamps give you! thanks for the giveaway! Love me some stamps!!

I like the fact that I can be more deliberate in my stamping because they are flexible and transparent.

What’s your favorite thing about clear stamps?

I cannot say I have a favorite thing yet because I am new to stamping. I have ordered some stamps from CTMH and am anxiously awaiting their arrival. I can see from videos etc. that they make stamping so much more fun because you can actually see where you are stamping. I so can't wait to get my order.

And I really hope I win this so I can add to my new obsession, haha.

I just don't understand how you can stamp without seeing where the image is going. I've tried many times (before discovering CTMH), and it always is sorta like a bad case of "Pin the Tail on the Donkey"...the darn thing never ends up where you think it should be!

My favorite thing about CTMH stamps is that they are CLEAR and you can clearly see where you are stamping!

My favourite thing about clear stamps is that you can see where your image will end up and NOT be crooked. I also love that they can be tweaked to alter their shape a bit- esp. good with outline borders and frames- circles become ovals and straight lines can be curvy.

My favorite thing about clear stamps is the minimal storage space they take up. I can take ALL my stamps with me when I go away because they take up so little room. (My email is taereitz@yahoo.com)

Uta said...

I love clear stamps because they need not many space and I can see the image while I stamp them.
Hugs, Uta

I love clear stamps, especially CTMH ones. I love the versitility of the stamps like using a masculine stamp and just changing the color of the ink. I love that they're easy to clean. That you can see right through them for perfect placement and I love that they're flexible. That you can curve straight borders or make a circle shaped stamp into a oval or something else. Clear stamps allow alot of creativity!!!! IM HOOKED!!!

I like that they do not take up much room!

What I love about clear stamps (and is what drew me in in the first place) is the small amount of storage space they take up compared to wood stamps! I also love that I can see what and where I am stamping too. :)

I love the clear stamps because they are so versatile. You can use several stamps on the same design because you can see where they are being placed.

i love clear stamps for so many reasons: you can see where you are placing them, you can shape them for your custom design, and most of all they are so much better to store!!!! i have so much more room in my cabinets for more close to my heart products becuase my clear stamps are flat and in convient envelopes that fit in wonderful close to my heart storage boxes. i just love them all around!

Kimberly said...

i love seeing where i am stamping!!! so easy with CTMH stamps!!!

Marie said...

Why I love clear stamps....
being able to see my creations come to life as I stamp my image on my project. The clear stamps let me position my stamp in the right spot and I'm able to angle/reshape the stamp to fit my space. And the best part is the space it saves in my craft room..... which allows me collect more clear stamps in the same space it takes up for my block stamps.

I love that if I gently swirl a sentiment, then I don't have to stress about stamping it perfectly straight:)gretzybaby@hotmail.com

I can see EXACTLY where I want to place my image!! No more accepting that the "messiness adds character" to my "homemade" project..lol.

I love the fact that alignment is easy. So many images of my wooden stamps had not been glued on straight in the first place making it hard to get a good image. I also like the fact that they can be stored much more easily in less space.

Sandi said...

The alignment and the fact that I can actually see whether or not my stamp is inked properly before it goes down on my project. I have stories of "guessing" where to stamp an image and being incredibly unsuccessful with wood stamps, or having half-inked images because I didn't realize that my stamp wasn't inked properly!

My Favorite thing about clear stamps is being able to see exactly where you are stamping and the fact that you can manipulate the shape! CTMH stamps are the best! surfnfroggie at aol dot com

Kashana Willis said...

I love that I can see where I am stamping and the creativity/flexibility that you have with these stamps. I loved the video on you tube about the roses and the water color. I can't wait to try it.

Um...can you say coordination with Cricut cartridges? Without clear stamps and the ability to see EXACTLY where you are stamping, you would have to use punches. Lots of punches. Which are more expensive and take a ton of space. Yeah...clear stamps and Cricut cartridges. What's not to love???

Stephanie said...

I like that they are easy to line up, are as good quality as the rubber stamps, and they use up a lot less storage space!

Debbie (from Sugar Land) said...

Being able to see the image clearly is my favorite reason - but I'll have to agree that storage is a strong consideration also. And - have to have Art Philosophy and Artiste to go along with them - what a great idea CTMH had!

mammy2one said...

I love how you can see where you are stamping, for me it's hit and miss at best with rubber stamps, especially alphas. CTMH stamps are the best way to go!

What a great set! My fav thing about clear stamps is being able to see where I'm stamping...comes in handy if I stamp over something with a different stamp! You can contact me at staciesgiftgallery at gmail dot com.

Thanks!

Michelle said...

The best thing about clear stamps is that they are CLEAR!! I love that if I mess up, I can always line the stamp up with the image and fix it without doing the project again! Thanks for the opportunity to win a fabulous stamp! Jmswift5@yahoo.com or stampindipity@gmail.com......want to make sure you can reach me for the prize! Lol
