    Gosh this was like Sophie’s choice for me. . . I would have to say “Meet the Man” and Lady MacBeth tied for me. I don’t have any stamps with men on them, and this one appealed, but of course being the Shakespeare freak I am I was drawn to Lady M as well! Pam is so talented, just the chance to win one of these is amazing, thank you Stampington for giving us the opportunity. Now off the read the article! :-)

  103. OMah says:

    I love Beatrice because of the way Italians pronounce her name and because she was Dante’s beloved.

  104. Debby says:

    beautifully created stamps. very emotional and thought provoking. Great job Pam. Several of the stamps stand out to me but I think the fav is Desdemona…Lady Macbeth is a close second.

  105. Iris Perez says:

    If I had my pick, it would be “Beatrice”. She would enhance any project I do. Perhaps it’s because I’m a doll maker and always end up drawing women’s protraits. Thank you for the opportunity. It is always exciting waiting to see if one wins.

    Lovely stamps!! It’s tough to narrow down to one, but I like Beatrice the best for what I do!!

  109. Lena S says:

    It is so hard to choose just one when they are all so wonderful! Desdemona has her home nesting in her hands which I love and great hair accents. Icould see using pieces of this one in many different ways, so going w/her for now, but Lady Macbeth is speaking to me…she definitely has something to say so she’s my fave too.

  113. planetjenn says:

  114. Pat Langley says:

    My favorite stamp is Beatrice, although they are all nice.

  128. Melissa Norman says:

    My favorite image is Meet the Man

  129. crystal says:

    I really identify with Beatrice because alot of my art work has had circles and dots in it lately as a symbol of something in my life right now and I think it may be the topic on “time”

  130. Carol Ann says:

    All of the stamps are wonderful, but my two favorites have to be Ophelia and Lady Macbeth. Thank you for the article and the opportunity to win a stamp!

  131. Louella Turvey says:

    It was a tough choice, but my favorite is “Heart on a String.” There is an edgy look to her that I LOVE!

  145. Pamela Beliveau says:

    I love them all. but if I had to pick one, Lady Macbeth, very versatile. Thanks.

  146. Tisa at Seattle Retro says:

    Meet the Man! He’s a cross between a snake oil salesman & a businessman with a halo…semi-sinister…or then, is he?! I think he speaks to a quiet corner of my soul ;)

  147. Carla says:

    Lady Macbeth

    All of Pam’s art is impressive and I’m looking forward to her new book. The new stamps are terrific and it’s hard to choose a favorite, however, I’d have to say my favorite would be ‘meet the man’.

  177. Jan says:

    HEART ON A STRING! The look on her face is priceless! I can see tons of uses for this stamp!

    Thanks for the opportunity to play!

  178. Susie Cross says:

    My favorite stamp is Cordelia but I would be happy to have any of them.

  179. Val says:

    I really like Cordelia with the three little birds but they all are really great.

  180. Cindy Sikes says:

    I love Lady McBeth! She has such a beautiful face. Would love to get any of her stamps though.

  181. tina says:

    They are all so amazing!! Hard to choose a favorite but I finally settled on Desdemona. Othello is one of my favorite plays. The detail on these stamps is fantastic, especially the range of bold and subtle.

  182. Mary Nibert says:

    I like Lady Macbeth. She appears to be looking at me; questioning me. This makes me pensive, and requires that I look inside myself. This image would be very versatile in artwork.

  183. Karen says:

    Beatrice – and I’m glad you feature Pam’s work in your magazine.

  184. Alina says:

    I am a stamp carver myself and Meet The Man catches my eye.

  185. Apart from LOVING them ALL, my favourite is Lady Macbeth – I love her facial expression!
