NEW $1.00 Clear Stamp Sets at Michael's
 
OMG....I had to buy each different set...they had about 14+ different sets...they are tiny ones and they also had little clear blocks to go with them, each for only $1.00. Each clear stamp set has 4+ different stamps...for instance:
It's Your Day, For You, two little flowers and a tall 3 layer cake.
Just Because, Friends, a bigger flower and (fun)
Thanks so much, Oh Happy Day tag, daisy, and Have a Great Day
Thanks, You're sweet, Thanks a Lot, a butterfly and flower
Bundle of Joy, BABY, onsie hanging on a line
Sweetheart, LOVE, I Love You, a sm. rose, two hearts
Boy, two stars, a baseball, sm. frog, and round circular boy
Hello, laugh, Thinking of You, and 4 different flowers
Make a wish, cupcake, party hat, and Let's Party
Enjoy, thanks, in my thoughts, and a flower
I adore you, Love, XOXOXOXO, and two hearts
Party, You're invited, for, date, time, place, given by, RSVP
Girl, butterfly, ladybug, flower, party girl, and circular girl
5 different swirly embellishment stamps.....

Call me enabler...call me crazy...but I had to buy them all and I had to tell about it!!! LOL

thanks for the news, I am going to go tommorrow night!! I hope ours got them!

Blestmomof6 03-08-2007 05:29 AM

I went back again last night after church and picked up another set for a friend. There was a woman behind me that was grabbing all the rest...so they are going fast!
Also, just wanted to say I tried them out...and they work great! You do not have to apply as much pressure with these as with the rubber stamps on wood blocks! Just a lighter touch! I always stamp on a scrap paper before I stamp on my project just to get the "feel" of each stamp anyways.....
I think there were a total of 16 different little sets in these clear stamp sets. There were also two petite acrylic blocks, each for $1.00 to go with them. You cannot beat that for price. I had mentioned earlier that each set came with 4 stamps, but I was wrong. There are anywhere from 4-6 little stamps in each set.
Happy shopping, and happy stamping!!!

jennjohnson 03-08-2007 05:44 AM

OH my! I am going to have to go check them out.

buggainok 03-08-2007 06:06 AM

I got all 16 sets, too. They are great little stamps. They work every bit as well as some expensive clear sets I have. And wow, what a bargain!

If your Michaels doesn't have them yet, keep checking back. Some of the smaller stores didn't seem to get them in.

I had to drive a ways to a larger Michaels store to find mine, but it was worth it!

qvande 03-08-2007 07:01 AM

You are definietly an enabler!! I live quite a ways (2 hours) from Michael's. I didn't want to drive that far and find they didn't have any, so I called 2 different stores and found one that had them. They are going to hold one of each set and 2 blocks for me until I can get there on Saturday. Thanks for listing all of them.

California gal 03-08-2007 09:27 PM

:( My Michaels still doesn't have the clear $1 stamps.

scrappinkar 03-09-2007 09:53 PM

Thanks--I've got to check it out this weekend! I did get a couple of cute clear flower stamps at JoAnn's last week for a dollar, also!!!

jkincolorado 03-09-2007 10:27 PM

I just found these tonight too -- they are CUTE!!! :D

heather30 03-10-2007 07:16 PM

I had to go out and get them! I loved them and bought quite a few sets. I think they are a great value!!

bradley's_mom 03-11-2007 02:09 PM

ours never has the cool stuff!

busymom92 03-11-2007 02:25 PM

I looked for them today and could not find them at ours.:(

grammieT 03-11-2007 02:38 PM

I bought two sets last week and went back this week and wouldn't you know it they were all gone except a few blocks....I wonder if they will be getting more in......???.....if you know let me in on it too please....

I only found 12 sets I bought 11. I think I am going to have to look again and see if they have more that I might have missed. Does anyone have a picture of all the sets.

Aimee30 03-12-2007 04:51 AM

I went to two micheals this weekend and they don't have them yet.

Same here, but I'm in Canada and ours always take longer to get stuff. Hmph!!

Lisa62 03-12-2007 06:28 AM

our MICHAEL'S IS COMPLETELY OUT OF THEM NOW. THEY DIDN'T HAVE A LOT BUT NOW THERE ALL GONE. NOT SURE IF WE'RE GETTING MORE OR NOT.

stampsinblue 03-12-2007 06:30 AM

You might want to call ahead to your Michaels to see if they have them. I went to ours last Tues. & they only had 4 packages left (but only two different images sets). They have not received another shipment yet. I tried two other Michaels while I was out last week & the same story, sold out fast! I am keeping my fingers crossed that ours will get more in soon!

deedah 03-12-2007 09:49 AM

Michaels in Canada will not have them......we always get left out!!:confused:

Micheals Canada did have them, but mine is now sold out.

lovenewhobby 03-12-2007 04:22 PM

I went to my local Michaels and no such luck! Of course, I still left the store with several other items (can never leave empty handed;) ). I will continue to check. thanks for the tip.

mochamap 03-12-2007 04:43 PM

are these stamps in the bins or in the stamp section? I want to pass by tonight to see if they are around.

I found mine in the dollar bins. I was so happy to find what everyone on here was talking about :D

Stamplady 03-13-2007 04:06 PM

would someone be willing to send me all the clear stamps from mmichaels and i could send you the total amount via paypal? i can't get to my michaels and i'm afraid that by the time i do get there they will be gone! so if you are willing to, i would ever so appreciate it! i would love to have all the sets if that is possible....i have a great feedback rating on ebay, my ID is lorettamike so you can check that out if you'd like.

thanks for any help!

ladyofgrammar 03-13-2007 04:14 PM

OOOOHHHH.....I wish I had a Michaels near me...but then again, I just hosted a Stampin' Up party and landed a lot of free stamps and supplies, so I probably ought to use them first before I go and get more!!

bjtstamper 03-13-2007 06:59 PM

I picked up 6 different sets tonight, and they work great. I do want to get some bigger acrylic blocks, especially for the invitation stamps so I can put them on one block and stamp the whole invitation at once. They are so cool!

If anybody wants to see at least MOST of the sets (there are 16 total), you can go to this eBay store and see them: http://cgi.ebay.com/Studio-G-Acrylic...QQcmdZViewItem

I was bummed because my Michael's only had one set, which I didn't really care for. After having found them on eBay, I don't feel so badly anymore. Yes they are cute, but they are not for everybody. So go have a look before you run all over trying to find them. One person on eBay is even selling all 16 sets, but the picture is not very clear.

I found them on Friday. They were in the wire rack that holds the wooden stamps. I bought a few; I didn't like them all.

AOvermiller 03-14-2007 09:29 AM

Has anyone in the Fort Worth area found these $1 stamps that everyone is talking about?! I've been in the Mikes there a number of times and no luck so far. I even asked about them this last time and they just looked at me like I was crazy. And then tried to show me the clearance stamps and the wooden $1--which are almost all Christmas stamps!! AHH! I've seen your cute cards and I want to find them!! ;) HELP!

kikikaren 03-14-2007 01:26 PM

I saw on another thread that someone found them in Dallas, however, I can tell you from experience that the Plano store I went to (on 15th and Alma) and the Dallas store (on Lovers') didn't have them on Monday evening. The Lovers' store knew what they were but said they didn't have them yet. The Plano store looked at me like I was crazy and said they're expecting a restock shipment in ONE MONTH! The Plano store's dollar bins also looked completely picked over and most were empty.

I wish someone could tell me why we live 10 miles or less from HQ and can't get the stamps! Argh! So, I feel your pain!

Here is a picture I found on the SCS site (compliments of Andria Werner) of all but one of the sets. There are 16 in all (plus the two acrylic blocks). I was unable to take a picture of my complete set (batteries are dead) so I hope this helps in the meantime for everyone. I'll update with a new pic as soon as I can.

jkincolorado 03-14-2007 09:15 PM

dkfla, thanks for posting that picture. My store only had a few of the sets.

steffsscraps 03-15-2007 09:53 AM

I was able to get each set the morning they put them out at my Mike's. I went back later that afternoon to get the blocks and the bin was completely empty!

Stamplady 03-15-2007 11:16 AM

i found them ! yay! how how's everyone storing them? they are so little.

stampinwithjamie 03-15-2007 11:23 AM

Are the blocks in the dollar bins as well? I have some bella stamps that I need blocks for but don't want to pay a lot for them. Any suggestions?
Thanks!!!

I went to Office Depot and got a pack of page protectors for trading cards. Each sheet has 9 pockets. You may have to trim the sides of the plastic backing on the stamp sets a little bit, but they fit into the pockets really well.

Then I have them in a 3-ring binder. I store quite a few of my smaller clear stamps this way. It is easy to flip through and find just what I need.

Ohhh, that's a reallly good idea! Thanks!

busymamma 03-16-2007 05:18 PM

I went to M's today and all that was left was two small, narrow blocks - I have been to different locations and have not been lucky to find any. They sure are cute.
