Question Question of the Week: What type of stamp can't you get enough of?

Okay! You knew it was coming.... This release is the second one we've had this year and I'm starting, in my head, to put together the next.

Once, at my LSS, a friend of mine commented that a WHOLE wall was covered in flower stamps. When asked why, the owner said "Because flowers are so popular" So the whole wall of flowers made sense.

For me, I can never seem to get enough "Happy Birthday" stamps. I literally must have a couple of dozen. I figure, everyone has a birthday, I can't use the same stamp to them twice. I mean, really.

So, what type of stamp can't you get enough of? What is the one type of stamp that you just seem to keep buying?

Beach/nautical stamps. and I'm ALWAYS looking for sentiments for the inside of cards (heads up, stamp companies!). I have lots of "Happy (whatever occasion)", stamp companies, so PLEASE make insides sentiments to match/as additions to your outside stamps!!!!!!!!! I want something different! And humorous is always appreciated, too!

Steampunk and Victorian, especially if the two crossover. And florals!

Southwestern! I have many already, but the next time I see one, I'll probably "have" to have it!!! I have lots and lots that I haven't used yet; this year I tagged all the stamps...and other stuff...that I haven't used yet and I'm trying to use them all at least once!

When I first started doing this stamping thing (over 10 years now) I told my husband that I would make some cards with each stamp set and then sell it and use that money to buy more, therefore limiting my expenses. I didn't intentionally lie to him, but I just couldn't make myself give up my Halloween stamps. I still have them!

French sentiments! Those are hard to come by (aside from the very popular "merci"), so I stock up on all the good ones I find.

For images, Christmas is what I have the most of, but it is also the occasion I send out and sell the most cards. And I have a soft spot for Christmas stuff as well.

I also tend to gravitate towards train images. My dad worked for a train company all his life and we used to travel by train all the time. This might explain the obsession.

Alma, wouldn't an image of the Bunny sitting in a train and wearing a conductor's hat and striped overalls be the cutest thing ever? (hint hint...)

I'm a sucker for anything with Snowflakes and Snowmen. I also love purchasing stamps for holiday occasions (I.e. Christmas, Easter, Halloween, July 4th, etc).

Hmm, I have a couple of downfalls. Biggest one would be anything asian/Japanese.
Various kanji greetings, sakura blossoms, bamboo etc. Can't seem to get enough of those.

Cute animals, like those from Lawn Fawn and Paper Smooches. Christmas critters, like Hero Arts' reindeer in sweaters from the last 2 years. Love them!

Although I'm not a teacher, I like anything teacher-y, or office supply looking. Oh and right now, I'm on the trend bandwagon with vintage cameras and polaroids!

Graphic type images to add to card backgrounds (think borders that could be repeated for large backgrounds or just as borders), nautical images not necessarily character drive, chevrons, drinks (especially coffee), anything nature related - especially trees (something along the line of Nesting or The Tweetest Things sets), tags and sentiments to stamp onto them. And like Susan, I also like cameras and office supplies although not necessarily vintage - more funky and fun.
