Time for Candy!

I'm at over 3,900 views this morning! And that means time for my giveaway.

I have such a good time giving away blog candy that I have to control myself to not give out more... I'm hoping that today's giveaway will be of interest to many of you.

I'm giving away a free custom blog banner and watermark combo.

If your name is chosen from the comments submitted, I'll work with you to make something you'll really like. If you don't have a blog that needs a banner, I'd be happy to make you two watermarks for you to use.

Interested? By Saturday the 7th at noon (mountain standard time), leave a comment on this post (one per person, please) and tell me who makes your favorite line of stamps and why you like them the best.

I love knowing that you're out there and hearing from you! If there are over 115 comments to this post, I'll add another smaller prize that I'll draw a name for.

I have to say that Stampin' Up definitely has the best stamps out there!

Wow, what a giveaway!!
Glad you posted on my blog or I would've missed your cool blog.
I would say that Hero Arts is my fav because they have a clean beautiful design and I love the rubber!

Great blog candy. I'm glad I have google reader to help me find things like this. I'd have to say that Papertrey is quickly working it's way to my favorite, but I still favor SU! because they have more of a selection. I like to have variety.

I love Stampin' Up! stamps. They are great quality and I love the variety of styles they offer! (I really like the feel of wood mounts in my hands.) :D

Great blog candy offer!

Deanna Tam said...

That's a cool blog candy as I need a blog banner. Stampin'Up! is my favourite because I like that the stamps come in a set and all coordinated for you. I also love their designs.

Laura said...

Oh my goodness I started a blog last month and really need to make it mine. I must say that I like Stampin Up stamps however those bellas are 2nd runner.

I love all stamps but I mostly buy Stampin Up. I like the sets and the way the stamps all work together so nicely.

Peggy said...

I love Stampin' Up for the variety. But I do love the PaperTreyInk sets so far - such modern clean images!! Thanks for the chance!

BlogHore said...

Well, I am a Stampin' Up girl - but I LOVE me some Bellas too!

I was thinking about posting to my blog if there was anybody interested in helping me with a blog banner - I'm technically challenged and don't even know where to begin.

Here's hopin'

Kraftin' Kimmie said...

Oh gosh....that's a tough question! I'm a diehard Stampin' Up lover for the stamps and coordinating stuff!! But I have a little bit of everything and right now I love the Bellas too!! Gotta share the love, right??

Sarah D said...

well the only stamps I have and Have ever used are stampn up but I do look at a lot of stamps and think that I might like to step outside my SU box from time to time we'll see and I think this is really cool blog candy!

Anonymous said...

Stampin'Up all the way!!!

Dianne said...

What an awesome giveaway! I would love to win this!!! My favorite stamps are Stampin' Up, but I absolutely adore the Stampingbellas! Thank you for the opportunity!

Wife2TJ said...

What wonderfully creative blog candy!!! My favorite stamps right now are Stampin' up. LOVE them. Doesn't mean I don't love other stamp companies as well though. Tere are so many to choose from. Thanks for the amazing blog candy!

Toni said...

The coolest giveaway!! I'll have to jump on the bandwagon and say Stampin Up is my favorite stamp company. Followed by Curious by Design, but I wish they'd come out with more images!

Rachel Hope said...

great Candy!!!! I like Stampin' Up b/c I am a Demo and they are great, but I am also a fan of A Muse and noe Papertrey Ink

chelemom said...

This is a hard decision because I am not loyal to one company in particular, but I do own more Stampin Up! Stamps than any other...and I 'm not even a demonstrator!

Sandra L-M said...

I use SU the most because I'm a demonstrator. I have some from Club Scrap but I haven't used them yet although I like the images... Sandra

Melissa said...

Wow, my favorite line of stamps. I am so new to this all, but I guess since I just became a new SU demo, it better be SU, but I am loving Papertrey too! Great job with your blog!

-Another Melissa

Melanie aka Batgirl said...

I love the Bellas! I love the uniquness of them and that you can colour them in :)

Kristine said...

Mmmm...I am in love with Penny Black stamps, however, I have to go with SU! as my favorite because of the versatility and the fact they come in sets--and they're pretty cute! :0)

StampOwl said...

What is my favorite line of stamps - now that is a tough question because I like sooooo many. I guess though I would have to pick alota rubber stamps if I have to have a fav as they have images names especially after my family members.

Candisue said...

I am torn. I have fallen in love with Technique Tuesday. But the Papertrey Ink (being new) is becoming a very FAST favorite. All I know is that I have now gone thinner. I have demounted my wood rubber stamps to make everything cling mounted.

PS my birthday is Sat. April 7 LOL

Alex said...

ooooh blog banner for candy how fabulous my favourite stamp line would definitely have to be Stampin Up as I only found them six months ago and as you know these are not as readily available to us in the UK YET!!!

Judith said...

First, thanks so much for the birthday RAK Melissa, your card was as nice as the thought behind it. I've added you to my blogroll.
My favorite stamp manufacturer....?hmmmmm.... That is really a difficult question. I have many for different reasons. I was introduced to stamping through Stampin' Up! and have always been pleased with the wide variety and the overall pricing. Since, I've run across many small manufacturers that each have their own distinguishing looks. The Bellas.. need I say more!... Lockhart Stamps.. beautiful detailed and clean... PaperTrey (I'm high on these stamps at the moment as I just recieved my Butterfly Kisses and Green Thumb sets, WhipperSnapper Stamps, gosh, I could list more.

But, I think my favorite manufacturer at the moment is My Favorite Things Stamps. The reason I like these stamps above the others is the artwork is so creative and unusual. I've not seen anything like them before. They come in sets and the price is reasonable.

Keeping my fingers crossed.. I need a nice banner!

Krista Wolf said...

I will have to say I love Stampin' Up! products. I fell in love and became a demo at my first party. It's been hard to venture to another stamp company.

SaraFrawley said...

I guess I'm a little partial, but I absolutely LOVE Stampin' Up! There are so many varieties & options with SU! I also like the Bella stamps images too!

I'm a die hard Stampin' Up! girl. Have to tell you though, that there are some really cool new acrylic stamps that are calling my name. Love the Bella's and the sets from Paper Trey. I imagine that sometime soon they will find their way to my house.

Marie said...

Ohhh that's a tough one! I LOVE THEM ALL!

I would HAVE to say that SU! is my favourite (since I'm a Demo and own a TON of them) but then I'm really enjoying the acrylic ones too.

Oh I can't decide...I LOVE THEM ALL!!!

Angie Juda said...

A free watermark.....oh my gosh....I need one!!! My favorite is Stampin' Up!.....why? They match my personality!

Sorry for my mess up. I typed something that said I chose Stampin' Up! and said that I had no reason to "live"--I meant to say I have had no reason to "leave" since starting Stampin' Up! I had to delete because I didn't want people thinking the wrong things. I love the new stamp sets that come out and all the accessories from Stampin' Up! Very cool blog candy--thanks for offering that!!

Angel said...

Stampin UP has always been my fav. They have the stamps all coordinated for you in sets.

Jan Scholl said...

I have a lot of SU and CTMH but my favorite is Penny Black. I think if my gramma were alive, and she were a stamper, she would love the flowers and other flora that the Penny Black line contains.

KIMBERLY said...

WELL I JUST GOT HOOKED ON THE BELLA'S BUT I STILL LOVE S.U. WHY YOU ASK? WELL.....WHATS NOT TO LIKE.

Rebecca said...

Great giveway!

I would love to win!

I adore Stampin' Up, but there are alot of great companies that run a close second! I miss Paula Montgomery's Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers stamps.

Terri E. said...

Stampin up for sure, but 2 new favs are the bellas and papertreyink loving what they are coming out with.

It's a good life!
Terri

Joanna said...

That is a cool prize! Thanks for offering it. I have to say that after looking around I think that Stampin' Up! has the nicest stampest and the widest range of styles too.

Steph said...

I really like Stampin' Up! because I like that the stamps come in sets that are meant to be used together.

Ally Stamps said...

GREAT CANDY!!! I really need a banner and a SU watermark! Stampin up has to be my all time favorite but those cute little bellas are giving me a run for my money!!

Carol said...

Lisa Bohler said...

It's definitely Stampin Up for me. I am now a demo but was an SU fan since 1996...an addict really. I do love some of Paper Inspirations line, though.
