Heartbreaker

Here's a super tall card from Doodlebug using a fun Digi-stamp from Bombshell Stamps called Muertos Doll.  The Background stamps and the sentiment are also from Bombshell in the rubber stamp set  Man's Ruin.  As some of you know I am from San Antonio TX originally, so I am very familiar with Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), which is a day of huge celebration and prayers in memory of those who have deceased, typically Nov 1/2.

So, here's today's question, we have kinda been talking about it over the month, but what company makes your favorite stamps, what are your favorite stamp topics? 

My Fav Topics--I do like skulls (maybe that goes back to that BRAIN surgery), I like Halloween, I love cute/sweet girls and sexy ladies. I also love quirky images and funny (i.e. punny) sayings.
My Fav Companies--Sweet Pea stamps, BabyCakes, Sherri Baldy's Besties, Kraftin' Kimmies, Squigglefly

How about you?  any fave companies?  fave topics? 
7 Gypsies? Hero Arts? Inkadinkado? CC Designs? Crafter's Companion? Sweet Pea? Besties?

Cheers, Holley

My favorite stamp companies are Stampin' Up!, Tim Holtz and 7 Gypsies. My personal favorite style is vintage/grunge but I also like sweet and simple that I can watercolor or fussy cut and layer.

Betsy said...

I LOVE Magnolia stamps! And then there's Close To My Heart, Stampin' Up!, Paper Smooches, CC Designs, etc., etc., etc. Oh my - so many great stamp companies to choose from!

What a great card. I love magenta, saturated canary, unity and so many others. I am very new to cardmaking so I am just getting into it. I have been a scrapbooker for 20 years though.

Melody Strahan said...

You asked something like this earlier in the month...lol.

I have a small collection. I have a smattering of companies though. I have a small 7 gypsies set with keys and crowns that I LOVE! I have a little Prima set with 2 birds that I use a lot. I have a Travel set from TPC Studios that I am addicted to. I have a little Tim Holtz, a little Hero arts, a little cloud 9 and a little Colorbok too. I have an old set from Inkadinkdoo with gorgeous flowers. My tastes run more to image types than brand loyalty I guess. I like stamps that I can mix and match to create beautiful collages mostly. :)

Sparkly Engineer said...

Name a fav company, I couldn't even begin to narrow it down. I always have and always will love my house mouse stamps by whoever is producing them at the moment, I like so many different types of images it's hard to say, I really am liking chocolate baroque, although I do not have any of theirs YET, crafty Individual, Deep Red Stamps, Red Rubber Designs, Love ODB and Justrite, just way too many; oh yes, any ANYTHING Japanese.

Susan Salyer said...

I am a stampers anonymous girl from the beginning..skulls? I have made hundreds of them many when I was a DT for smeared ink..I still am just in journals now so will probably still be making skulls.

Glennis said...

I like the English designs - Paper Artsy, Crafty Inspirations, Indigo Blu, Darkroom Door (Australian) and will throw Tim Holt into the mix as well

Kate M said...

Great card Holley. My favourite has to be Stampin' Up! for the sheer variety of stamps available and super quality!

Stephanie said...

This is so cute! I think that Doodle Pantry is my fav for digital stamps. I don't use many because of a space issue! I have been buying from SVG cutting files way too much!

Anonymous said...

Cute card. Some of my favorite stamps are from Stampin up and Close to my Heart.

Kathy said...

Cute card! There's no way I could name a single company or artist as a favorite! I look for stamps for the occasion. Because I'm a classic procrastinator, that means I'm often looking for a digital stamp. Luckily, artists seem to make stamps for every possible theme.

Cathy Parlitsis said...

You're soooo talented, Holley! This is ADORABLE!
As for my faves, I love all things Tim Holtz including his stamp Line...I like Stampin' Up! and Verve and all Vintage looking stamps.

Laine said...

Its always fun to visit Holley and this is a great image. So many stamps and images, so little me. We have so much choice and my favourite changes from minute to minute.

Love this card, and the image! DH and I go to San Antonio every year for a long weekend getaway - we love the city! My stamp likes are pretty much all over the map - collage, Asian, cute (like Penny Black critter-cute), funky ...

Andree said...

This is a fabulous card Hollie. The image is brilliant.
I'd have to say that I love colouring flowers and pretty ladies.

Cute card. He'd be great for Halloween too!

ShersL84bed said...

While I normally wouldnt not like this kind of stamp, you made it nice and cheery. I love the bright colors. Made me smile to see it, so you are doing something right. hahaha

My fave stamp company is Sherri Baldy stamps, second fave would be LOTV but I havent tried one yet. I just saw some of the beautiful cards people are making with them.

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

you have opened my world to a whole lot of new and fun stamp companies....One of my favorites is Unity.

Melody Dings said...

Hi Holley,
No favorite stamp company for me. I like your skeleton creations and most of your ladies but not all. LOL!
My favorite look for some unknown reason tends towards the oriental look.
I'm a bug lover and cute stamp collector on the small size mostly.
Take care,
Melody D.

Linda Wickwire said...

Yes the skully has a broken heart but he is waving and "smiling"!! I don't stamp......but I love getting cards. I make cards just never got into stamping. I have enough supplies to float a ship and if I stamped would have to have even more!

Hugs,
Linda

cebelica said...

This skeleton is actually quite funny. it made me giggle even though I don't really like skeletons, skuls and other things like this.

My favourite stamps come from these companies: Stempelglede (I love the vintage look of their stamps), Magnolia, LLLC and Wild rose studio - I think the stamps from these 3 companies are VERY cute. Oh yes, and CC Designs too. :)

My favourite topic is Christmas. Or cute animals. :)

Hugs! xx

ionabunny said...

Hi Holley, your card made me smile. What a fun image. I think my most favourite stamp company is PaperArtsy. They make a huge range of very unique stamps from some very talented designers. Also use Crafty Individuals a lot. Such wonderful detail

Shelley said...

Very cool card! I love to stamp with summery ocean related themes, unusual images, zentangled images, frogs, cows, mermaids (my personal favorite) etc. My fave company would have to be my own little stamp company Wild Frog Creations, then maybe Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers, Creative Images, Lost Coast, VLVS, Uptown, oh I see me going on a lot farther than I have room for here, lol. BTW, it's time for someone to send YOU a prize. So send me your addy and I'll get a goodie off to you in the mail!

cathy said...

Somehow a bright cheery card with a skeleton! I like it.

Natalie said...

cool card, Holley :)

I don´t have a favorite company. There are so many awesome products out there and I always like to mix and match. :)

thinkscrap said...

I like mostly fun baby or little kid images. My favorite places to purchase from are Mo Manning, a day for Daisies, saturated canary, Cheryl Alger. As for companies, I am drawn to stampendous for sentiment stamps. They seem to stamp very clearly.

Ardilla said...

WOW... at least, he is smiling :)

Stempelientje Stempy said...

Woohoooo great Bombshell stamps card!! I have a few favorite topics...Grimm fairytales.....forestanimals and forest....animals...not so much the cute stuff,Artsy stuff I like too, but all this depends on my state of mind,it varies what i like.

Trish said...

Hi Holley,
Fab card, its so you! I am more a cutesy image kinda person. I love Sweet Pea stamps as you well know, and also Sherri Baldi images are fantastic. I also use a lot of Sylvia Zetts cute 'wee' stamps.

Love the skeleton. The images I like changes all the time, but I guess my favs are flowers - I love using twinkling H2Os to paint them.

Anonymous said...

Holley (or readers), do you have any hints for me? I have painful arthritis in my hands, so coloring is difficult. I've been browsing your blog off and on, and love the stamps. How can I make cards that look good? paulaj at albumania@citlink.net

SHartl said...

Karenladd said...

Hmmm, I have too many favorite stamp companies to list but I do really love Unity Stamps, My Minds Eye, Stampers Anonymous and most vintage designs. I also love my share of cute stamp images if I'm in the mood such as Mama Elephant, Lawn Fawn. I really like bold sentiments as well and subway art text designs!
