    Hooray! I was so happy to see some of the PB team over on Simon! PB is one of my very favorite stamp companies. My favorite thing about stamping is that no matter how many people own your very same stamps, the projects everyone creates with them are so different! It’s amazing what a little change of color can do for an image. 🙂

    Brilliant idea, I am sure it will work well. What’s not to like about stamping. You don’t need a computer or printer. You can stamp anywhere and you get to look at your stamps on display too:)

  5. September 21, 2012 12:26 am

    Oh – great peeks, and I have been and seen the great projects – I love that stamping is my therapy – and I get nearly instant results – well, at least one thing finished in an afternoon session!!

    Even if I can’t draw or sketch, stamps allow me to express my own creative ability. It is limitless what you can do with stamps. PB stamps offer so many fun possibilities.

    This is such a fabulous month at Simon Says Stamp and I have my cart filled waiting to be checked out. I guess with the PB coupon code I can finally hit the button 🙂

    I think stamps are the most versatile tools in the world of crafting. You can do so much with just a single stamp and that is what I love about it.

  8. September 21, 2012 1:31 am

    I love the versatility of stamping….I can use it in cardmaking,scrapbooking and altered art.

  9. September 21, 2012 1:37 am

    Stampings my creative outlet. I love creating a scene, colouring a character or stamping backgrounds 🙂

  10. September 21, 2012 2:12 am

    I’ll go & have a look at the Simon Says blog but in the meantime…….. I love the fact that stamping can allow for creativity whatever your style – if you like colouring, there’s a stamp for you & if you like dimensional glitz – there’s a stamp you can emboss. PB is particularly versatile with their range of images in that way for there are cute & classic designs.

    I’m on my way to Simon Says Blog but meantime….Stamping…it’s the perfect way to while away stress and loneliness and if it’s a PB stamp you’re sure of creative satisfaction and success. Stamping….Bliss! Thank you.

    I have just seen the gorgeous creations up close on the Simon says Stamp Blog ,, fabulous inspiration from Jill and Elizabeth !! 🙂
    I love everything about stamping,, I was hooked from the moment I saw a stamped card in a craft shop window, which as it happens was a Penny Black Snowy Christmas card ! It was also the first stamp I ever bought and is still one of my all time faves 🙂 I love the fact that there is always more techniques to learn and different looks to achieve ,, and no 2 are exactly the same 🙂 stamping isn’t ‘just’ a hobby ,,, it’s an addiction !! 🙂

    Stamping is so versatile. You can place images where you want, combine them, mask them colour them, layer them, chop and change them. If I don’t include stamping on a card, I feel like I’ve cheated or taken a shortcut.

    It’s really a wondrous thing to see two companies come together. This is why I love the crafting community! What I love about stamping is that since I cannot draw, I can stamp an image, color it, paper piece it, and make it my creation! Going to the blog now to see what crafty goodness is waiting for me!

  24. September 21, 2012 4:15 am

    I love that you can make any kind of design you want when stamping. I feel exactly like what one of the previous posters said – it feels like cheating when I don’t stamp on a card!

    I love what the ladies have created for this one. I enjoy stamping as it allows me to be creative without having to be able to draw an image. For me it is very relaxing. There are so many techniques that you can do with these that you cannot do with digital stamps too.

  27. September 21, 2012 4:38 am

    I love the creativity that stamping allows me to explore with so many options of different ways to use a stamp.

    I love everything about stamping. I love the tools, the paper, the ink and most of all the stamps. Two people can pick up the same stamp and do completely different things with it. To me, they’re almost like magic.

    September 21, 2012 4:49 am

    I love how stamping relaxes me….I seem to shut out everything going on around me, except sometimes my kitties who want to play with my supplies, and think of nothing else but creating. It’s also rewarding to see the recipients of my cards oooh and awww and they know the card took more effort than going into a card store and picking a mass produced card. I never make two cards exactly alike so there’s an element of uniqueness.

  32. September 21, 2012 4:51 am

    Stamping is fun and is almost like a therapy for me… if I’m feeling too stressed or unhappy I can sit down with a white sheet of paper and create anything I want… I am in complete control over my projects and every now then everyone needs that in their lives! Thanks so much!

    Stamping is my therapy … it clears the stress out of my life and fulfills the creative bug within me. I’m always amazed at what can be done with stamps and color. Can never get enough of it.

  35. September 21, 2012 5:18 am

    I love stamping, after a days hard work it is some relaxing time to stamp and colour and bring the stamp to life in your own personal way. And the finished work always brings some joy to another human being.

  36. September 21, 2012 5:20 am

    Stamps are just so versatile and you can do so many different things with them – they really are a must have piece of equipment!!

  37. September 21, 2012 5:21 am

    I love how you can be simple or detailed with stamping – it all looks great!

  38. September 21, 2012 5:23 am

    Went to the Simon Says b log to see the projects. Love them both and the creativity of using the stamps is inspiring. I love stamping because something new is always coming out on the market to make my stamps reusable and more fun and new designs are being drawn. . I am now into mixed media art and found that some stamps that have been sitting in my drawers are now coming alive on my pages. Woo Hoo.

    I love Penny Black stamps, they are so cute and versatile! I love stamping because it allows you to express your creative self. You can have several people use the same stamp and all come out with a different look because everyne is different creatively

  40. September 21, 2012 5:30 am

    I love rubber stamps in particular, and all the wonderful images that I have at my fingertips to use. I can stamp in so many ways, just stamp and colour, emboss, stamp into UTEE, there are so many more techniques I have yet to try and I love it! When I bought my first rubber stamp in 2006 I had no idea I would end up with so many of them, and that I would use them on most cards that I make. I love the Penny Black stamps and all the cute characters. I also use digi stamps now, never thought I would, but I prefer to use rubber every time!

    September 21, 2012 5:33 am

    I love to make cards and a stamp starts the whole process for me. I decide what stamp I want to use first and then the colours to go along with it. I have managed to buy a few Penny Black stamps as they are not readily available here. Often you can use the same stamp over and over and come up with a different look each time.

  42. September 21, 2012 5:40 am

    Beautiful designs from Jill and Elizabeth! I love stamping because I’ve found it to be the easiest way to exercise my creativity – I don’t seem to be happy unless I’m creating something, and stamping fulfills that niche. Coloring in an image that I’ve stamped is relaxing, and then pairing it up with beautiful papers and embellishments is just icing on the cake!

  43. September 21, 2012 5:40 am

    I love that each stamp is actually a piece of artwork that I get to play with and make into whatever coloration, using all types of mixed mediums! Like painting the Sistene Chapel in Neon, but different bc I can send mine to a friend to enjoy as well!! Just fun stuff to play with, actually!
    Love your project, and am in love with your Penny Black images!!

    I love stamping because you can make the images look however you want them to. Love PB stamps!!

    The thing that I love most about stamping is the endless possibilities. With the variety of stamps that are out there and the techniques that are shown… Being able to give someone a papercraft that is completely unique is a great feeling. And you don’t have to worry about someone giving out the same cards as you did ;).

    I have several penny black stamps in my stash. Thank you for the chance to add a few more.

  53. September 21, 2012 6:22 am

    what do I love about stamping – stamping brings so many possibilities to yur creativity – I am not an artist (can’t draw) but yet I can put elements together to make beautiful cards – and a stamped image is one of the elements that helps make a creation beautiful. Thanks for all your fun and beautiful stamps.

    When I started stamping, the reason was to make cards for cancer patients. That was several years ago. I love that I can make something that makes someone else feel good.

    I love stamping because it takes me back to my childhood where I could sit for hours coloring and making the image mine alone without a care in the world. Sometimes coloring ‘by the rules’ with standard colors for standard items. Then sometimes I would change the colors of the images to make some of them special or would shade them (yes, you can shade with regular bring more life to them. Stamping gives me that wonderful feeling of leaving stress behind and enjoying such a simple part of life by creating something that is unique because I made it. Just on a more grown up scale 🙂

  91. September 21, 2012 9:28 am

    What’s not to love about stamping? It’s been a wonderful creative outlet for me, especially since losing my mother in 2009. She was so creative and I feel that I have a little bit of her with me whenever I make cards or other items for family or friends. Not to mention the delight I get when someone comments on a handmade card they receive from me. It’s more special to take the time to create something from scratch for someone that is tailored to their whimsical or sentimental side when it comes to stamping and creating. I find it so much more fulfilling than buying a store-bought, mass produced card or gift. When you make it yourself, you put a little of yourself into it, and that’s the best gift anyone could ask for, in my opinion.

    Stamping helps me be creative!

  100. September 21, 2012 10:09 am

    I love SSS, they carry great stock and have great service too. I love stamped card making for the shareability. Unlike a scrapbook, which would go in a binder and get looked at when?, I know that every single thing I make, no matter how much I love it, is going to be given away and hopefully brighten someones day. That makes me very happy.

    Stamping is a great creative outlet which I also find relaxing.

  106. September 21, 2012 11:23 am

    Stamping is a way to release my stress and just find some inner peace while choosing the stamps and the right ink for my cards.
    I like the fact that stamping can be done if you’re in a hurry (simply stamp and add a sentiment) or if you have more time, you can color with your favorite medium and add it to an already stamped background and keep adding details.
    The best part is that Penny Black has stamps for both styles ! Thanks for inspiring us and for the chance to win!

    I am such a big fan…. and these new stamps do not disappoint. I love you club. keep up the good work. What I love about stamping is that you can make that background paper to match your project. I also find it very relaxing to stamp an image and then color it. Thanks for the chance.

  109. September 21, 2012 12:25 pm

    What I love about stamping is that I can make beautiful images every time… even though I don’t know how to draw or even color very well.

    Also, the transition of embossing powder to embossed stuff is like magic. Every time.

    I never knew I had a creative bone in my body until I retired from a very stressful job and picked up a rubber stamp. Now I can’t stamp often enough. I love, love, love it! And I love sharing the cards I make with others, especially with our Soldiers overseas through Operation Write Home!

    i love making cards, and stamping is a big part of throwing out a sentiment to meet the need. i make sympathy, birthday, wedding, graduation, and sooo many more. i always stamp either a sentiment inside or something on the front.

Not only is it a fun and therapeutic hobby, but we “pay it forward” by helping charities in our community – can’t get better than that!.

    After years of scrapbooking, decorative painting, and creating legal briefs, I have discovered a brand new way of self-expression. Stamping! This is a new project that brings about new relationships by others willing to share their own creations so that other stampers are inspired. I start out by seeing something I like and then strive to make it my own by putting my own spin on it. Stamping is a craft I can share with everyone, on any occasion, all of the time! I am fascinated by the hundreds of cards others create. When I sit back and look at the cards I have created, I get drawn into the passion of the statement that each individual card makes. Every card is a different story and adventure. Each card is fashioned with someone special in mind. What is there not to love about Stamping?

    Stamping in crafts is like acostic music – you use the tools in a pure unmodified way. The stamp is the instrument and the ink is the note. Nothing contrived. I love music and I love getting inky.

  132. September 22, 2012 1:02 am

    Love Penny Black stamps, my first stamp was a PB. Love the feel and process of inking and stamping, finding different ways to use stamps, different techniques, creating my own artwork, in my own way. Great team of Simon says and PB, well done.

    What’s NOT to like about stamping – I love to create cards, knowing they’ll be giving happiness and a smile to someone – be it the children’s charity or my personal friends – who doesn’t love a specially designed card for them and what could be cuter than the PennyBlack images (the hedgehogs are my personal favorite!)! And, the added bonus – it’s a stress reliever for me! Matters not if I’m designing, organizing or shopping for more “stuff”. I’m totally addicted for life . . .

  146. September 23, 2012 5:46 am

I have been stamping for years and just love getting out some of my very old stamps, most of which are pb, and creating new styles with them and knowing that it is highly unlikely that any card I create is going to be found anywhere else. I don’t like repeating the same card although I do, of course, reuse images but to be able to be so creative is brill, particularly as I can’t dr as for toffee!
