hero arts.

Hello!

I'm switching things up today and slinging out some 

g o l b   y d n a c
{read it backwards}

Why do I type it that way?  It might be me, but it seems goodies bring people out of the woodwork and I want to keep this to the peeps that come here to see my projects, not for the goodies.

New Hero Arts


answer this question and then link up:

Wood Mount or Clear

my answer:  I've definitely become the clear girl...easy to stamp and easy to store.

I have a ton of wood mount that I haven't touched in a long time...I should sell them but they are so pretty:)

  1. I agree wholeheartedly Amy... I have my wood mount stamps displayed but clear are so much easier to use :)

  2. I've become a clear girl too, Amy. I still use wood, but it isn't my first choice. Oh, and I definitely come here to see your projects and hear your news, not just for goodies. ;-)

  3. Clear are easier to use but I do love some wood stamp ones!

  7. Yummy!!! Beautiful stamps!!!!
    I really can't choose ... not if you by wood mount also mean ez mount red rubber. I love them both. So much. It's like choosing one baby over the other. Can. Not. Do. :):):)

  8. I have become a clear girl for sure! I do still have some wood but rarely reach for them! (Even though I love them). I'm thinking of destashing all of my SU sets from when I first started......I haven't used them in like 10 years!

  9. I love both, I use them both equally. Though for details clear stamps are much easier to use. Have a great Monday Amy!

  10. I have tons of wood mount stamps and do love the way they stamp. But....love the clear stamps for so many other reasons!

  11. I am new to your blog recently so I don't mind if I miss the ydnac glob, lol.... I prefer clear as well for they are awesome for making a pattern and being percise! Hugs

  12. This is a hard question for me to answer. I still like the feel of a wood mount stamp but it is hard to beat the versatility and ease of storage of the clear stamps.

  13. i agree with u too...... hmm... I am definitely a clear stamp girl now.... it's much easier for me to see where I'm stamping :)

  14. I am a clear fan too....I never actually used the wood, just got sold on stamps based on clear. I do not have a thing ma bob for my stamps, and those wood ones are expensive!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'll take cling or clear any day! I only have so much space...

  16. I have become a clear stamp girl because there is so much more control. I also have so many woodblock and I will say that they consistently give the best impression, but so hard to line up. I am always here for your inspiration Amy, because there is so much of it. :)

  17. I love my clear mount stamps, Amy, because they are so easy to store. More stamps fit in the same amount of space too. :-)

    Now off to catch up on your posts from the past week since I was on travel for work...

  18. I am too lazy to figure out a stamp-a-ma-jig, so I am definitely a bigger fan of clear these days. Wood is easier for kidlets, though, that's for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I would have to say clear - easier to store, and I don't have to bring out my stamp a ma jig.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I am definitely a clear stamp girl. I find they are much easier to clean and store away. And it's cool that you can see through the acrylic block so you know exactly where you're stamping :)

  21. I love clear stamp....!!! easy to maintain....hugs...xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love how rubber holds ink, and wood mounted stamps are easier to use with a stampamajig, but you can't beat clear for seeing through while stamping--and they are so much less bulky for storage. I like them both!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I am a clear girl. Stamping is difficult for me, so I need all of the help I can get!! HA!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Maybe it's becuase I'm still learning, but I think wood (or cling) stamp better than clear, at least certain brands of clear. I did had some good results with SSS clear ones, Thanks for the chance.

  25. With my recent foray to art journaling and less than perfect style, I gravitate to wood mounted!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have, and love, clear stamps. BUT I am old fashioned and have some awesome wood stamps---and like them as much, it seems! Just need to get more....'hint, hint'

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm with you~ I love the clear but have some woods that I can't part with. I love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  28. both, I am with you on the clear but there are so many things wood mount that aren't out there in clear and I have to have them! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I use them both - but definitely usually buy clear now unless it's some really cute stamp (!) - it's so hard to line up the wooden ones! even with one of those 'thing a ma jigs"!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Use them both but I definitely always buy alphas in clear because then I can see where I'm stamping! I will never get rid of my wood mounted stamps (and they seem to give a better image), but clear is also easier to store! So yeah...love them both!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hee hee...always have to laugh at your backwards "blog candy" posts!! I always consider the candy a bonus to the awesome inspiration here!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Both! Why pick a fav? I like clear stamps more though because of price, ease of use and storage. But there's something about a good wood stamp. It already has cushion, usually stamps perfectly and pretty! Thanks for the BC too :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love clear stamps for several reasons but there is nothing like the feel of those good old wood mounted stamps (of which I have so many).

    ReplyDelete
  34. Sweet blog candy! I always use wood mounted stamps. I really want to try clear though! It's on the list of things to do.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've turned into a clear girl, easy to sort through and I like that I can see where I'm stamping... but there is something about a nice wood mount stamp every now and again so i can't totally dis them! hehehe!

    ReplyDelete
  36. hi Amy, well I buy mostly clear stamps now as it's much easier to position them, although I do have all my collection of wooden stamps on shelves like ornaments ... LOL, so I can admire them .. LOL :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  37. clear for sure! so much easier to store and stamp. but i'll get wood stamps when they are pretty... =)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I like them both! I'm fairly new to stamping so I like the fact that wood stamps don't need an additional block. But I like the lower price of clear stamps and the ease of using them too!
