Default Stamp fill-ins

I know that some stamp sets come with lined stamps, then in case you don't want to color, they include stamps that color for you.
Does anyone know of a set of generic stamps of different sizes that you could use for this purpose when your lined stamp didn't come with this option?
I hope that makes sense

You're talking about an outline stamp and then a similar shape only solid, what Stampin' Up! calls two-step stamping, I think. I'm not sure about generic stamps, because generally the solid stamp is a pretty close match in size and shape to the outline image. You could always make your own solid ones by stamping the outline on fun foam with an ink like Ranger's Archival or StazOn, then trimming it down. Then you can use double-sided tape or temporary adhesive to stick it to your block. Remember to make sure not to stick the wrong side to your block or you'll end up with a mirror image which won't match.
An alternative is to use something small, like a small circle stamp, and use it to add colour to your outline image, but this gives a more impressionist, pointillism look because it's never going to match the outline exactly and there will be areas of overlap.

Thank you Sabrina. I was not looking for an exact sized stamp as I sometimes like the watercolor, outside the lines kind of fill. I like the idea of making your own. I guess I thought there might be sets of pre-made imperfect rounds of various sizes. Kind of like splotches?

I don't recall having ever seen a generic set such as you're describing.
Sabrina's idea of creating them with fun foam is a great plan.
If you're hoping for 'circles' to dot around & fill in color, you could try punching fun foam circles with your punches and/or circle dies, or even trace around small bottles of embellishments, glues, etc.

If not in the mood for marker coloring, you might consider colored pencils as a quicker option as well.

Thanks! I'm going to give both these ideas a try.

Altenew has a number of circle sets that include outlines and/or fillers. I just searched for "circles" on altenew.com and scrolled through the results. Hope that helps!

If you just need to make smallish circles, try stamping with a pencil eraser.

If you are using symmetrical polymer stamps, stick it upside down on your block and mist the blank side. It gives a water coloured effect that is just a little larger than the image.

If you are just trying to gently fill in the space, peg stamps like those from Rubber Stamp Tapestry would also be fun! Just make a reverse mask, leaving the outline open, pick a peg stamp or two or three and fill the space.

You could try stamping your primary image on a Post-It or similar and cutting it out to create a negative mask. Then, lay the negative mask over the stamped image on your card. You can then use any stamp in your collection - solid or textured - to fill in the image on your card.

Another possibility is a cotton swab or the foam swabs for applying makeup. Those come in round, oval and pointed and can be dabbed on with more than one color.

You could always overlay a stencil to fill in the space.....

What a good idea! It reminds me of what can be done with designer paper....stamping the image on the paper, cutting it out just within the inside of the outer lines. and pasting it into the interior of the primary image. It's really quite striking!

Here is a set from Altenew that might work, with both solid and outline shapes. You could trim the outline shapes, use them backwards for even more options.

Or here is a mirror image stamp (clear) that might work from MFT stamps:
