You might be a Stampy Stamper if . . . . .

1)      You buy alcohol-free baby wipes in bulk and you don’t even have a baby.

2)      You steal your son’s/husband’s/brother’s plastic baseball card organizers to organize your many stamps.

3)      Kissing and “Smooches” mean something entirely different to you.

4)      You spend your Friday evenings watching embossing powder turn from a powder to a solid and get giddy over it.

5)       You know the difference between dye ink, pigment ink, and solvent ink and which works best on felt, wood, paper, glass, plastic, burlap, etc.

6)      You look at your food and decide it would make a great handmade stamp.

7)      You know how to properly pronounce Tsukineko.

8)      You are often caught browsing the $1 stamp bins at your local Michael’s.

9)      You don’t mind getting a little dirty when you paper craft.

10)   You describe colors as Onyx Black, Latte, and Baja Breeze.

11)   The first column you read when your Paper Crafts magazine arrives is Stamping Techniques.

If you can relate to the above, then you are indeed a Stampy Stamper and you should pay extra special attention to the following announcement.

The 2013 Stamping Royalty Contest is right around the corner! We’ve gathered up a fabulous prize package of product worth over $750 from some of your favorite stamp and ink manufacturers to award to 15 winners.

  2. Isabel King says:

    You know you’re a stampy stamper while trying to sit idle and look to be relaxing, and all the time you are going over in your mind of a new sketch you want to apply to the next card you send to a friend or family member! And…gotta stop at my local hobby store and see if there is any stamp or accessory that I don’t have yet!

  3. Helen F. says:

    You know you’re a stampy stamper when you google “craft stores” instead of Tourist Highlights in new towns or states you are traveling to :o )

  4. Colleen says:

    You know your a stampy stamper when your husband asks what you would like have for Christmas and your list consists of only stamps, ink pads and paper.

  5. Deirdre says:

    You regularly do the school run with glitter on your face and it’s not from your eyeshadow! People look at your funny, never say anything and you discover it when you return home!

  6. Mary Bee says:

    You know you are a stampy stamper when you are trying to do your duty saving the earth by looking at every “piece” of something that cannot be recycled– and trying to figure out how you can stamp on it or use it in some way on a card.

  7. awesome!! thanks for sharing and for the chance to win!! =)

  11. Suzze Tiernan says:

    You know you’re a stampy stamper when you spend hours looking at the stamps for sale even though you couldn’t squeeze another one in your drawers. And think all you need is a new set of drawers!

  12. Hanne says:

    When you go to work with very red fingertips because you were stamping your own washi tape the night before. With distress ink… Which you cannot remove from your skin lol

  13. Peggy B says:

    You might be a Stampy Stamper if, for any occasion that comes along, you think “I can make a card for that!”

  14. Brenda Lubrant says:

    I think you are a stamping royalty when you would take a dresser drawer away from your husband to store more stamps.

  15. Laura K says:

    When your finger tips look like you’ve just been taken to the station and been fingerprnted!

  18. Sesil says:

    WAY COOL!!!! How exciting

  19. Els says:

    When you need to have a notepad at your bedside to jot down all the fabulous cardideas you come up with at night ;)
    This is a wonderful opportunity. Thank you very much for organizing!

  20. When you rather spend your money on new stamps then new clothes. My wardrobe is rather pitiful right now! :)
    xoxo, Christine

  21. Flo says:

    … if vacation to you is finding stamp stores everywhere you go and taking an almost empty suitcase to bring home all your goodies.

  22. Kate says:

    You know you are a stampy stamper when everything you see gets sifted to see if it can provide inspiration for a card. I was watching the BBC weather forecast the other day and then made some fab cards based on what the meteorologist was wearing!

  23. This one is more related to scrapbooking – (but hey, you can stamp on scrapbook pages, right?!) – I’ve always loved how people will decorate their rooms and or clothe their children in colors they love to scrapbook with!!! This is a beautiful prize and yes, I will definitely be entering this year! It’s part of my New Year’s resolution :)

  24. Lori Lenton says:

    You know you’re a stampy stamper when the rest of the house can be a complete disaster but you know exactly where everything is in your craft room which is completely organized by color, stamps, paper, etc!

  25. You know you are a stampy stamper when…
    you are the “go-to gal” in your office whenever a card is needed for a co-worker’s birthday, get well, retirement, etc! I’m always hearing “Rachel can make a card!” at work (and I love it)!

  26. Margaret says:

    How fun! Everyone has made great additions to list. I have to go with Helen F, the Googling of craft stores as part of the vacation planning!

  27. Tina Cee says:

    A Stampy Stamper carries her stamps to work with her knowing she cannot use them; but will have them near me….um her!!

  30. 12. Finding out that a stamp is ‘unmounted’ doesn’t phase you no matter what form it might take. In fact, it even excites you because it means it takes up less space so you can have room to buy more stamps!

  31. Teresa Igo says:

    seeing a design or picture of some kind and thinking that would make a great stamp

  32. Tanja S. says:

    A Stampy stamper gets inspired for card designs by everything and anything around her – peoples clothes, photos in books/mags, curtains, kids pencil cases you name it. She also has ink under her nails and on her finger tips. She saves all the bits of ribbon and gift wrapping (and even florists things out of flower arrangements) and foil from inside the lids of coffee jars to reuse on cards.

  33. Mary Lou H says:

    A stampy stamper will come out in any weather to attend Stampin’ Night at my house. Since it starts at 6 p.m., you know it will be late before we are finished. Rain, snow, cold, they still come out and have a good time. And I’m thrilled because I don’t have to get out in it (though I would if it was at somebody else’s house.)

  34. Carmen says:

    I love the “You don’t mind getting a little dirty when you paper craft.” That goes for your two year old too :)

  35. Jazy Girl says:

    You know you’re a stampy stamper when you analyze what others are wearing to come up with cool color/pattern combos.

  36. N@ Ali says:

    when you can’t help yourself to look at every little thing as a tool/supply to making cards (oh if I wrap that ribbon around that chocolate box I might get a cool background stamp!)

  37. Samantha N. says:

    You know your a stampy stamper when your inspired all the time and you have a million sticky notes in your purse to remember “I have to try that when I get home” !

  38. Mandi says:

    If it is not moving it can be a stamping surface.

  39. Bonnie aka raduse says:

    Guilty as charged! LOL If it doesn’t move, stamp it for sure!

  40. Natasha Poteraj says:

    Ink under the fingernails. Will ink ever wear off a real crafter’s fingernail beds?

  41. Sharon Gullikson says:

    Glitter. Always glitter. We always have glitter on our faces, arms, hands, clothes…

  42. Geri G says:

    You know that you are a stampy stamper when your hubby knows just as many stamping related words as you do….like…..embossing, baker’s twine, cutter, scoring tool, Big Shot (especially because he has had to fix mine), Michaels $1 bin (while he waits in the vehicle) ….. need I say more?

  43. Beth M says:

    Leaving the house with ink stained hands. And thanks for the chance to win. :)

  44. Jodi V says:

    Checking out every craft store in the area when on vacation!

  45. …when you save store catalogs for the color combos you can use on cards instead of wanting to buy what’s in the catalogs!

  46. Debstamps says:

    You might be a stamper if you’ve used googly eyes to fix your vacuum cleaner attachment hose! [It worked great!]
