I have personally shopped at each retailer listed below and can certainly recommend them.

Hero Arts offer a My Monthly Hero Kit – these kits are released each month, and are only available while stocks last. The main component of the kit, the stamps and dies are not released as sets to purchase, and if you miss out, you miss out. They are hugely popular, stuffed full of amazing product, and priced at $35US whilst containing at least DOUBLE that value every month. Hero Arts release add on stamps and dies at the same time, and these remain available for purchase as part of their main catalogue.

Australian based stamp and die company. Every month they have new fantastic card making kits, complete with stamps, dies, papers, chipboard and sentiments. Shipping to NZ is around $8AU
This is another one stop shop. I particularly love their in-house range of stamps and dies, and they release card making kits each month. Look out in September (which they have renamed Stamptember!) – exclusive collaborations with other big names in the industry. This is a great place to look for smaller company’s products, tools, innovation. International shipping starts at $24.99US – Youshop is a great option to get just $7.99US shipping.
I shop here because I particularly love the Ellen Hutson range of stamps and dies – designed by Julie Ebersole and Brandi Kincaid. They stock other brands too, such as MFT, Hero Arts, Lawn Fawn, Avery Elle. I also purchase their stamp pockets simply because of their quality. International shipping is very expensive from here however – I use Youshop to get my goodies to New Zealand.
Hello Bluebird are a reasonably new company and they have the cutest stamps and dies. I have shopped directly with them, and was super impressed at the prices of their die sets, and also their international shipping rates – just $8US! And usually arrive within 2-3 weeks.
I love the fun artwork and interesting dies that Reverse Confetti have in their store – they are different to any other company I have seen. Their international shipping rate is also very competitive at around $11US, and arrives in the usual 2-3 week timeframe.
I love Mama Elephant products! They have adorable stamps and dies, plus great frames and sets to give your finished project an elegant look. They also have interactive die sets and great word dies as well. I have noted their prices are sometimes significantly cheaper to purchase directly (especially die sets) rather than from their accredited retailers, so it pays to have a look.
International shipping rates start at around $12US, and take take 2-4 weeks to arrive in New Zealand.
This US online store has an incredibly large range of craft goodies from various brands and companies. I also look here for the harder to find items – such as retired or discontinued/older stamp sets, often I’m in luck! Frantic Stamper also has their own range of stamps and dies, so definitely worth a look. Shipping is around $25US for international.
