Quick Freebie!

After reading the posts again for the blog candy I wanted to do something special. You may not realize it but I like to do things in 3s (you'll often see it on my cards)...that being said I change it up to go against the flow like on today's card!!
Soooooooooo....here it is...

If you do not have ANY Marvy punches, are not expecting any to arrive in the next little while, and would like some then reply to this post stating:
1) Why you must have some punchies--the punch outs (you can get really creative here) AND
2) Your 3 favourite Stampin' Up! colours (I don't have any of the new ones yet...my fall-preview order has yet to arrive)

I will randomly draw 3 names from the list tomorrow night around 8PST and get them in Tuesday's mail. Yup, it's that simple.

Thanks for checking back. I was hoping to post about 4 hours ago so I apologize for the delay. It was a housework day today *lol*

Because I love to stamp and you do too!

I just love the look of all the marvy scallop punches! I *need* the new scalloped heart because I LOVE hearts!! I have a heart theme in my bathroom, that is how much I like them! I love all the scallops, so many neat ideas that I have seen!!! I really like what Nicole did on her blog with the corners! So many valentines, anniversary cards and wedding cards oh my!
My fav su colors are, barely banana, pretty in pink and elegant eggplant.
Thanks for a chance to win!

Jessica said...

I don't have any of the marvy punches and would love a scalloped punch because I absolutely cannot get a scallop curved edge with my scissors or corner punch. My favorite colors are Rose Red, Certainly Celery and So Saffron. Great website, thanks!

Fran M said...

I love all the scalloped punches, but would especially like to have the rectangle - it is so unusual and would be perfect to use as a mat behind a piece of paper with a greeting, etc.

I like all the paper colors, but maybe pretty in pink, certainly celery and close to cocoa would top my list.

I don't have any of the marvy punches either. :( Poor me!!! I would LOVE to have some "punchies". My favorite 3 colors (right now) are certainly celery, pretty in pink and so saffron. Subject to change at any given moment.

I love all the new scalloped punches and "need" to try all the fun projects you all keep creating with them. I don't have all the patience to use my corner rounder or slit punch all the time. And the scalloped scissors and I just don't get along!

Currently my three favorites are cool caribbean, pretty in pink, and bashful blue.

Thanks for the chance to win!

I would love the punchies so I can case some amazing cards I see everywhere. Try as I might I cannot get a decent scallop using my scissors!! I would love to order some punches but can't seem to find them in stock and then if I do the cost of shipping to Canada and the duty scares me off! LOL! My favorite colors are Cool Caribbean, Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink (and WW in the plain punchies so I can layer those awesome little scallop punchies...hahaha).

I just got some scallop punches on Friday. I was hoping the Giga rectangle would be bigger tho. But I found something really cool today at the stamp store near the airport in Detroit. Amuse makes some scallop oval clear stickers!!!!10 to a package for aroudn 4.00. they look to fit the smallest scallop oval punch. they are not at the Amuse site for some reason.

Steffani P. said...

Well, I love all punches and all things new to me...I only have a few SU! ones. I have enjoyed the blog and try to make it part of my daily read. My fav colors are real red(makes me think of love everytime I use it)night of navy, and regal rose. Thanks for sharing your cards.

rebecca said...

I've been quietly lusting after all the new Marvy scallop punches, of which I have none. Therefore, I have no punchies either. I like to use such things for tags and frames for other stamped images. Wouldn't the scalloped punchies make beautiful tags and frames?

My long-time favorite (or, as you say, "favourite"--tee hee) colors are Certainly Celery, Cranberry Crisp and Night of Navy.

Cathy said...

Wow what a sweet thing to. I don't even have 1 yet. :( I love all the shapes, but right now they are to high for my budget. I'm losing my job next month, due to down sizing, so have to watch the dollars, until that special job that is waiting for me somewhere. All the shapes just add that special touch to the card. My 3 SU colors right now are:
Certainly Celery
Any shade of Purple (Purple lover here)
Shimmery White
Thanks for a chance

Charlene Weaver said...

I just bought the scalloped square punch (Giga) which appears to be the only one sold anywhere around. I desperately want the circle punches as I have seen so many beautiful cards made with these. So many ideas, so little time. It truly is impossible to make a good scalloped circle using scissors. My favorite SU colors at the moment are: certainly celery, close to cocoa and elegant eggplant. Thanks for all the inspiration and the chance to win some goodies.

Cheryl said...

How sweet of you!!! I need the new scalloped rectangle punch. My favorite SU colors are apricot appeal, certainly celery, and cameo coral. Of course I love all colors so it wouldn't really matter. Thanks so much.

Eileen M said...

I love the classic look of the large scalloped circle. It just makes any card look sweet.
My favorite colors are true thyme, cranberry crisp, and night of navy.
Thanks!

scrappintrish said...

ooooh. I really want one of these! I think they look SO beautiful with the Bella Images. Thanks for the chance to win. I also have Blog candy up for grabs on my Blog until June 15th.

foodpartyfun said...

I love the marvy scalloped circle punches...they make a card standout. My favorite su colors are: certainly celery, pretty in pink and so saffron.
Thanks for a chance to win some awesome candy!

Andrea Hays said...

I love the circle scallop punch. I have myself on a craft budget because I am craftaholic and buy everything I find. But I can't seem to bring myself to buy the punches. They seem to expensive or something.

I love cranberry crisp, certainly celery, and so saffron!

Emily Anderson said...

i want some punchies, because i have none! and so i'm forced to cut around all my images with scallop scissors...very time consuming!!! now if i had a punch...life would be so much easier :)
my favorite colors are taken with teal, certainly celery and sahara sand! thanks!

I have a couple of the Marvy punches, only one new one the circle, I have the older scallop squares, have had them forever, they are fun to use as stamp backgrounds, As for SU colors, I don't use SU paper that often but if I had to go with 3, it would be elegant eggplant, so saffron and certainly celery.

christina (cmf1216) said...

I love using punches because they add an element to my cards that I can't achieve on my own! Whether it's a scallop around a large image or the perfect mat for a small image or sentiment, there's a punch out there that can do the job! :) My three favorite *go-to* colors right now are Certainly Celery, So Saffron, and Caribbean blue! Thanks for the chance to win -- your blog is terrific!

CAKVD said...

Hello! I would love some punchies! They are all the rave it seems on cards nowdays. I haven't seen any in scrapbooking, so I'd like to be the first to try. I don't have any of them and they are just too expensive for me to buy any. (because I'd have to get several of them) My fav. SU colors are chocolate chip, certainly celery, and cameo coral. Thanks!

T. Whitesell said...

I have never used any of the punches but they look so cool on cards and page layouts. I can't wait to try them one day. I love SU greens and pinks, not picky on the shades. Have a great day!

Janice McElwee said...

I absolutely must have a marvy scallop punch. Punches are an addiction for me. I have almost every SU punch available right now. I use them at every class I have and constantly showcase different ways to use them. They would be one of my top selling product items. My favourite SU colors (right now) are certainly celery, barely banana and almost amethyst. I used them in my last class on a project and I sold 5 sets of the 3 reinkers to customers!

Joan said...

I have a few punches and I am working on getting more. I really like all that you do and share with us. I look forward to all of your emails. I learn a lot from you. I do things in sets of three, too. My favorite colors are real red, mellow moss, so safron. Joan

Regina said...

Hi Alli,
Since I am scissor-challenged, I love the Marvy punches because they always look good, and layer so well. And I the scalloped edges look so "dressed-up". One ideas I'd like to try is to fold the punches to make little purses or envelopes.
Three favorite SU colors (at the moment): bashful blue, rose red and certainly celery.
Thanks for the sweet offer, and your beautiful blog!

Jenifer said...

I dont have any of the punches, but I would love them for Journaling spots, scalloped ones would be wonderful. I am embarrassed to say that I dont know what the su colors are but I can work any color into anything. Thank You so much for sharing.

Darlene said...

I love the look of the scalloped edges. I think it add an extra wow to any card. I am "heart crazy" but have not even seen the scalloped heart punch - I know - I can't believe it either!!!
My favourite SU colours right now would have to be Rose Red, Cool Caribbean and So Saffron.
Thanks for your inspiration and generosity.

Alison Molumby said...

I'm obsessed with those scalloped punches, but I'm broke as well, so I haven't been able to buy any. As a SU demo, I'm saving all my stamp cash for SU merchandise! My favorite SU colors at the moment are Certainly Celery, Rose Red, and Cool Caribbean. I'm liking the looks of Wild Wasabi and Pomegranate, tho!

carrie said...

I currently don't have any Marvy punches cause I'm cheap. "nuff said. I try to make my own scalloped pieces and they work but, in my opinion, look horrible. HELP ME MAKE BEAUTIFUL SCALLOPS!

My fave colours and chocolate chip, pumpkin pie and old olive.

Great questions Alli, thanks!

jodene said...

I love these punches. My family doesn't beleive in credit cards so I can't order one. I would love the scalloped ovals. They are so very pretty. My favorite colors are Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turqouise and Pink Passion. Thanks for sharing!!

Wendy M said...

I love the scallop punches, I have a square and he's so lonely! He really needs the oval and the circle to keep him company and to help me make pretty scallops! My favorite SU colors are Always Artichoke, So Saffron and Cool Caribbean.

Penny said...

What a great thing to do. I need the punchies because I don't have any and I look at several blogs (including yours, of course) and drool all over my desk. What a mess!!
My favorite colors are: real red, tempting turquoise, and so saffron.
Love your blog, thanks for a chance to win!

Bettina said...

I love all the scallop punches and have only gotten my hands on the square scallop punch. I'm dying for the giga circle scallop punch but everywhere I go they are sold out!! My favorite colors are Old Olive, Regal Rose and So Saffron (love this combo right now!).

Anonymous said...

Allison,
I must have some punched scalloped circles because I have no way to compete with Beate and you and all the other talented bloggers out there who seem to have these punches growing on trees in their back yards! I'm starting to feel like the loser kid in school who isn't part of the 'cool' group but is tormented, having to watch them play. I'd be happy with just some pre-punched scalloped circles. I'll pay postage!
As for my favourite SU colours...well once again it's a Sophie's Choice question...love the rose red with almost anything, certainly celery and I love eggplany envy though I never seem to use it much.
Rachael :D

Well Said Cards said...

Well I love those scalloped punches. I'm lucky enough to live near the A Muse store, so I do have the three purple ones (circle, square & oval) I'd love that heart one after seeing Nicole Heady's tutorial on her site.

My fav SU colors are Certainly Celery, Rose Red and Pretty in Pink.

BTW - I love your blog!

Kirsi said...

I think I need to have some punchies because I like them a lot and want desperately try some on my cards. Favourite colors are Cranberry Crisp, Very Vanilla and chocolate Chip.

scfranson said...

The square scallop needs me! Seriously, it's calling my name over and over. My favorite colors are celery, pretty in pin and cocoa.

Melanie aka Batgirl said...

I love all the punches and would love to get the scalop circles and ovals but I can't get myslef to spend that much money! so I use my caluzzle :) and scalop scissors! it works :)

My fav colours are Cool Caribbean, and Im looking forward to Wild Wasabi and Groovy Guava!

Tana said...

I have the square scallop punch, but do not have any of the circles or the ovals. I need some punchies because I see all of the AWESOME creations using the circles and I would LOVE to be able to make some too!
Right now some of my favorite SU! colors are So Saffron, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive. I got my preview order today, let me tell ya, the new in-colors are to DIE for.....you will LOVE them, I know I do!

Donna said...

WELL, I don't have any punches and the reason I need some is because I am a perfectionist and need to have perfect lines, perfect circles, perfect squares, etc etc...I love the way they look on a card and you can't create the same "clean" look without a punch.
My 3 fav colors are Choc Chip, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery.

Desiree said...

I need the punchies because...

1. I can't get them here....
2. I see all of these beautiful cards and want to re-create
3. I tried the scissors.... I need to go back to kindergarten...how did I pass with my cutting I will never know..

My three fave colours right now are...
1. Old Olive
2. Chocolate Chip
3. Celery

Great website...
thanks
Desiree

Denise said...

I need more punchies to fill up the few remaining pockets where I store all my punches. I just organized them all in a over the door shoe organizer. It's perfect and can hold some more!!
My 3 favs for SU color are:
brocade blue, so celery and so saffron, but I have been playing with new in colors wild wasabi & purely pomogrante and I'm loving that combo. Thanks for the great blog

Gailanne said...

The punches provide such a great focal point for a card...I've been dying to get some but haven't yet. I admire the punch-outs on SO many cards in the Gallery. They're right at the top of my MUST-GET list!

Fav colours? That would be the papers that keep running out in my stock--- Certainly Celery, Brocade Blue and Pale Plum.
Love your website---keep up the great work!

Lori W. at slwils@insightbb.com said...

I love the scalloped edge punches! I think the scalloped circle is my fave, but I really like those lil purses I've seen made with the oval scallop....
My 3 fave SU colors are: tempting turquoise, pink passion and green galore !

Regina D. said...

Hello, my name is Regina D. and I'm a scalloped punch addict! I need 'em. I crave 'em! Please, oh please pick me!

My three favorite SU colors are Basic Black, Real Red and Chocolate Chip. I'm seriously addicted to those, too!

Creative Expressions by Stephanie said...

I too LOVE the scallop punches and don't have any! I think my fav is the circle but I would be estatic with any at this point! I have 3 crafty daughters I could share with (one that needs some cheering up, she is an elite athlete and tore the ligaments in her knee just yesturday...unfortunately that means surgery). My 3 fav colors are choc chip, always artichoke and so saffron.

thanks for a chance!

Paula McLeland said...

I love the scalloped punches but can't bring myself to buy any (yet!). I love the heart and the rectangle ones best -- the heart because it is a heart and the rectangle one would make a perfect picture-type frame.

My favorite colors are Cool Caribbean, Pretty in Pink, and Barely Banana.

Thanks for the chance to win! :)

doverdi said...

I so want the marvy scallop punches. I don't see it happening in the near future as I just can't stretch the budget that far. Plus I've heard that metal isn't good for the teeth and it is hard to digest. I love the new heart punch especially after seeing a tutorial on how to use it for corners. My favorite SU colors are barely banana, pretty in pink and elegant eggplant.

Pat S. said...

1) I have a few of the old Marvy punches, that you have to sit on. I would love to have one of the new scalloped punches that I can use right on the table!

2) My 3 favourite Stampin' Up! colours are So Saffron, Groovy Guava, and Lavender Lace.

I really like your blog!
Thanks for a chance to win!

Tracy said...

I don't know if I'm too late....I don't have any of the punches...but I am absolutely dying for the scallop circle. Just like any of the equipment I use I feel like I NEED this! Punchies would definitely keep me satisfied for awhile!
My three favourite colours are certainly celery, chocolate chip & pretty in pink
If I am too late well...better luck next time!

Connie said...

Oh! Oh! I would love to have a scallop punch have seen so many cool cards made with it. I have so many favorite colors but I do love So Saffron, Elegant Eggplant,Pretty in Pink. Thanks for sharing your blog with all of us.
