I’ve always loved rubber stamps but I’m starting to prefer clear stamps these days. You often get a whole sheet of themed designs for the same price and since you use them with a separate clear stamping block, they take up a lot less storage space. Here’s some of my favourite brands and shops to help you start or add to your collection.
I love Doodlebug Designs’ stickers and washi tape but never noticed they make clear stamps too. Of course they’re adorable with plenty seasonal and holiday designs. Craftelier (EU) have a good range in stock and this Treat Yourself set with kawaii drinks would make sweet cards.
The BGM brand is well known for washi tape but they also make cute clear stamps that are great for journaling. Who doesn’t need a cat-themed check list? You can find a wide range at JetPens (US) and Miso Paper (UK).
The Sakuralala x Igloo Dining collection at Cute Things From Japan (JP) has a lot of fun options for journaling with tiny stamps for daily life plus borders, alphabets and more.
Mama Elephant (US) has some really sweet sets that can be used individually or placed together to make larger designs for cards. There’s something for every holiday and season but I especially love their creative sets with various hobbies that are perfect for homemade gifts.
Lawn Fawn (US) make clear stamps that are really customisable with lots of different elements to arrange yourself. Their holiday sets are making me want to get started on my Christmas cards and wrapping already.
