Stamp cleaner is a useful addition to a stamper's workbox. While many inks wash off quite easily with soap and water, other inks require a cleaner to remove them. A build up of inks can clog up small recesses in intricate rubber stamps. This is particularly useful when using permanent inks.

A small pot of gold pigment powder will bring the midas touch to many stamping projects. Gold pigment powder can be painted onto projects using water or mixed with other media. Gold is a versatile color and while there are many other colors available, most stampers love to add a touch of golden glamor to a project or two!

Glitter glue is one of those very simple, yet oh so effective innovations. Rather than have glitter and glue separately which - as many crafters will know, would results in flecks of glitter getting spread around the work area with alarming speed - glitter glue combines the two in one tube. This gives greater control over the application of the glitter, while also being extremely convenient to use. The Stickles glue that is shown in the photo is available in a wide range of colors and makes a great stocking filler.
