Blog Candy

I am so excited to offer up some blog candy today from my stamp line called Urban Design.  It's a small token of appreciation to share as I am very grateful that you stop by my blog.  It's always nice to see who stops by and I always love reading your comments.

The blog candy will be up until Friday.  All you need to do is share your favourite stamping/scrapping product with me (new or old, any manufacturer)

I will use the random generator to pick a winner Friday evening and will announce the person on my blog on Saturday.  So what's up for grabs?

Take Three: Spring and Take Three: Summer

I look forward to hearing from you.

My favorite... Hmmmm That's tough.
I guess what I would not want to live
without would be my ATGun. It's
wonderful. I have a lot of toys but I
guess I could live without them. But
ya gotta have that adhesive.

Noor Nahdi said...

Thanks for the chance to win...
I love Hero Arts stamps and have never tried any of PTI products :(

melissa said...

Hmm, I guess right now I am using spellbinders nestabilities dies on everything. I have several shapes/sets so I always have the "perfect" one for whatever image I'm working with. I'm addicted!
Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy and congrats on your new set!

Wendy said...

I would have to say my scor-pal. I use it on so many things that I wouldn't want to live without it. Thanks for the chance to win :).

Hanne said...

That would be my stamps and ink. I really cant create anything without stamping. 90% of my stamps are PTI and I love the stamps from your line!

Thanks for the chance to win!

kim-paperbabe said...

Well I totaly love PTI stamps, but don't have as many as I would love due to them getting posted to UK and I can't be without my big Shot so PTI dies are perfect too!
Thanks for the chance to win, HuGs Kim :)

gertinefromholland said...

It´s hard to chose one favorite..... I think it´s my cuttlebug, because I really like to use dies and embossingplates. But I really cannot craft without my stamps and ink!

Thanks.

Glennis said...

I would definitely say that I couldn't be without my cuttlebug. It is my most used 'crafty' thing
Thanks for the chance to win these stamps - I think the summer one would be a favourite as I just love birds

Carol said...

Its hard to choose just one, but I would have to say my stamps and ink, since I couldn't create without them.

Lynn said...

Wow - I would have to say the one tool that I use the most besides adhesive, my cutter and bone folder :) is my corner chomper...love, love, love it! Thanks so much for the chance to win! I appreciate it!

Kathleen said...

My current favorite right now is my PTI stamps with the coordinating dies. Makes it so easy! I love all of the labels shapes.

I am also really using my border punches - so easy to add a touch of whimsy to the cards with them.

Lindsay said...

Love your stamps Alli! Thanks for the chance to win some! I love Papertrey Ink stamps but will try others to shake it up a little bit every once in awhile!

Anonymous said...

Choosing one favorite is extremely difficult, but I would have to say it would be my ink because I use it on every project-cards or scrapbooking, crafting or home decor. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Erin said...

Wow, this is a tough question! After my PTI stamps, I would have to say my newest love is the Cuttlebug. I love that you can make die cuts as well as impressions in ONE machine! I have limited space, so its a win-win for me!

Laura said...

I don't make a card without my scor-pal, and I LOVE how it makes a great work surface when you use the scor-mat with it. It is also essential for making 3-D items, and using templates.

sarahw said...

I am a huge hoarder of card stock. I don't think you can ever have enough. I also love buttons. I hope all is well with your eyes, you are in my thoughts. Hugs, Sarah

Handmade Creations by Stephanie said...

Besides PTI of course I am Loving the border punches. Thanks so much for the chance to win!!!Love your work!!

Laurel said...

My favorite supply has got to be my PTI stamps, Kraft and lots of kinds of Pattern paper!

Chrissy said...

My favorite right now is my SCAL software...you can do anything with it and the sweet Cricut together! They are a perfect team!

Natalie said...

I <3 October Afternoon paper! They always seem to come out with the best patterns and embellies! :)

GabrielaD said...

Picking a favourite product is not easy.... I love acrylic stamps and Papertrey ink makes great stamps... the images are wonderful and you get a perfect impression every time.

Other than stamps I am completely in love with the Gypsy by Provocraft... a handheld device that allows you to link all your carts to it, you can also design your projects in the gypsy for easy crafting.

I love my Cuttlebug with all those wonderful embossing folders. They are so awesome; especially now that PTI has their own embossing folders too. PLUS you can use your nesties and impression plates, etc.

Yep... my Cuttlebug gives me endless possibilities to go with my PTI stamps.

I would love the Summer set... I just love these cute little images.

Thank you for a chance to win. Marilyn in Texas

Anonymous said...

Hmmm hard to come up with only 1 thing. I'd have to say my score pal as I use it all the time. Thanks for the chance to win.

Dawn G said...

My current fave product would be my copics but I love my cuttlebug and dies too...oh and didn't I say I love all of pti's products? I can't commit to just one thing :) buttons are fun too!!!

barbie_love said...

Love my Scor-Pal it is the best thing since sliced bread! LOL

melissa.flieg said...

I have to say may favorite crafting product is my stamps and ink. I love all my stuff from PTI especially the new matching dies. Thanks for a chance to win.

Cat said...

i just love my nesties and think they're the greatest! and, can't wait to get a few of the flat dies from PTI.

i love the two sets you're giving away, and the newest one is on my current wish list :)

Regan said...

wow Ali...thanks for the chance to win...
oooooh to pick a favorite...
I always each for my PTI stamps fist!

kat said...

Your Take Three stamp sets are yummy and I'd love to win them! My fav is a tool, my ELECTRIC Sizzix; it's so easy on the wrists!! Just push a button and it's done, whether it's my Nesties, embossing folders or a variety of dies. Love it!

Janice {Nysse} said...

I am so new to the stamping world and have so little supplies, ink, stamps and paper, however I did treat myself to a new border punch and love the sophistication it adds to my projects! Love your Take 3 stamps and hope that I win them to help my wish list shrink a little! Your ballerina is adorable, I have two ballerinas in my house that just finished their recitals..it was so wonderful!

Laurie Schmidlin said...

Oooh, Ali what wonderful sets you are offering...that very generous of you!!

I think my favorite paper crafting item would be (after stamps of course) embossing powder! I think I emboss on on almost every card! I just love how opaque and finished it looks!

Anonymous said...

My answer has to be my PTI Stamps. After I received my first PTI stamp set and put some ink on it, I was hooked. They are so clean and crisp to stamp with. What a treat it would be to win some blog candy, especially when I don't have either one of these sets yet! BARB W

linda patti tpatti@windstream.net said...

right now my favorite product is all the cuttlebug folders. so many ideas, so little time!

Amy said...

I'm lovin' all the fun, new border punches!

veronica said...

i love my aquapen. i use it all the time, because i love the look of watercoloring.
altho, after reading everyone's comments, i realize i couldn't bear to live without my scorpal either.

Mary said...

Oooh - great giveaway! My favorite products are probably my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities. Love them! But you know what? A fantastically sharp and straight paper cutter might even trump those two. :) Thanks for the chance to win!

oakleafdesign said...

I'd have to say distress inks are a must...I seem to be using them on everything I create these days.

Charmaine

Christina said...

I am so very glad I finally bought a Sizzix Big Shot a few months ago. I waffled about it for so long, and now I can't imagine crafting without it! I love using it with my Spellbinders Nestabilities and embossing folders/impression plates.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Amanda Winkelman said...

Wow! That is a tough one. If you looked in my stamp cuboards, you would say that Patterned paper would be it.....but if I had to choose, I would say it is my die cutting maching....love using my nesties and embossing folders! Thanks for the chance to win!!!

Glenda said...

Hard to pick one thing but after my stamps I would say my new border punches. Then there is always ribbon and hardware.

Thanks for the opportunity! Hugs - hope you are feeling better.

akagreenhouse said...

I do believe my most used tool is the stamp-a-ma-jig. I use it constantly. Placing words that are straight is the main use.

Laura said...

Hmmmmm. I'm pretty enamored of my new Cuttlebug, but I don't have many folders or dies yet. I'd have to say patterned paper and the Everyday Button Bits PTI stamp set are my current go-to items. :-)

Rhonda Miller said...

Hmmm, it's hard to choose a favorite, but I guess the one I use most right now is my Big Shot with my Cuttlebug folders.

Tamara said...

There are things I couldn't live without like my adhesive or my cutter, but I think my favourite right now is either my big shot or my scor pal.

Belinda said...

Love all your stamps Alli and all the great inspiration you share! :) I love my Nesties and my Waltzingmouse Stamps that match with them! :) Thanks for the chance!

Janet said...

Wow--thanks for the great giveaway., My fav tools are my nestabilities. Gotta love 'em.

Diane Jaquay said...

I'd have to say clear stamps (and I love many different companies). I wouldn't want to craft without them! Thanks for a change to win Take Three, I don't have either set yet and would be in 7th heaven if I were lucky enough to win :)

Stacy said...

Geez, how do I pick just one favorite?!?!? Let's see, I guess I would have to say my favorite stamping product these days are the really big Marvy punches (circle and scallop circle). These are my go-to's to make tags, which I seem to be doing a ton nowadays!!! I just find them easier than getting out the Big Shot and Nestabilities.

Jill W. said...

Oh my! I would have to say my Cuddlebug. I love the embossing folders and that it is compatable with all dies. It is something I use for practically every card I make.

Lori H (loricabo) said...

Nesties are my most-used, most-loved crafting item. I seem to pull them out for every project. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Lynne Phelps said...

Nesties and embossing folders. I love the folders - they add so much with texture that I hardly buy patterned paper any more! Ok, I buy LESS patterned paper than before!!! The embossing is like getting something for nothing, as you were putting that layer on the card anyway!

Maeghan Magante said...

I think right now my favorite craft supply is pop dots. So silly, I know, but I ran out recently and couldn't make cards without them!

smahrty said...

That is a super tough question! I love so many different products and mfg's. I will say I use buttons over and over on most of my cards and layouts. Thank you for the awesome give away chance.

Penny said...

I would have to say my martha stewart scoring board. I love 3D items and couldn't make them without it!

Sandra said...

I think the item I use the most is my distress inks ... that is other then the ranger craft mat, and my scoreboard and my Fiskars rotary trimmer .....
oh .... so many things!
thanks for the fun - lovely stamps and sentiments.
Sandra

Nancy L. said...

I'm loving PTI right now. As my spending is very limited. I love that all the stamps are easy to use together!!
Thanks for the chance to win your awesome stamp designs!!

Shelly Watson said...

I like my cricut, but LOVE my SCAL program to use on my cricut machine - it gives me so much freedom to design my own die cuts!!

mitz said...

...oh, you would havta make us choose, huh? lol.. up there in the top 10 is my cuttlebug and nesties.. thanks for the opportunity..(mitz_zee@yahoodotcom)

Carolyn Yat said...

Its hard to pick my favorite but I would have to say my pink dreamkuts. No measuring just to cut my paper into card size.

Lilian said...

my favorite stamping company is PTI! i love their clean, chique, versatile style. and i love all the coordinating goodies... ink, paper, ribbons, buttons, etc! =)

thanks for the chance to win your wonderful stamp designs.

Janelle said...

Tough question! I love everything PTI so anything from them is my favorite product. As far as tools go -- if I weren't to choose my arm-style papercutter it would have to be my Cuttlebug. We're having a serious love affair lately. :) Thanks for the chance to win!

stamp500 said...

I love my Spellbinders!

buzzy said...

My tonic paper cutter makes it all possible! My other products come and go but I have yet a need to replace this awesome tool!

annesatx said...

Besides PTI stamps, I really love my Cuttlebug (embossing folders and nestabilities) AND Stickles! Thanks!

IamDerby said...

Other than my stamps, I love my copic markers. They were expensive but soooo worth it! Thanks for a chance to win!

Jennifer Carter said...

Goodness! How can I choose just one? Well besides my stamps, I'd have to say ribbon. I seem to use it on almost every card. I sure hope it stays "in" for a long time!

Purrfect Paper Creations said...

After my stamps, I would have to say my favorite tool is my cricut. Aside from being a great tool for stamping and scrapping, it has been invaluable in helping my kids with all their school projects! Thanks for the opportunity to win, I love your work!

mika said...

Thank you for the chance to win. I am fairly new to stamping. I have a few PTI stamps and just love them!

Maureen Merritt said...

oh fun, who doesn't love blog candy? LOL! Favorite, buttons & all things PTI :)

Eisbärin said...

Wow, Alli, very generous of you to share those sets! I love both of them but haven't had a chance to get them yet as I am in the UK and p&p is very steep indeed. But I love PTi stuff... my favourite stamping related thing is detail embossing powder. I don't use it often enough but I love the look!
Thanks again and here's hoping...
Love, Alex

Peggy said...

My favorite product is Spellbinder dies but there are many others that aren't far behind. Thank you for sharing.
God bless,
Peggy Allen

StampinCathy said...

This is some sweet candy. I just love the adorable images and sentiments. I would have to say my Big Shot. Thanks for a chance.

Kara said...

I love my copics! They are so versatile and they sort of make me feel like a kid again!
Kara

Lisa said...

I just have to say that I love all of your stamps set. One product that I could not create without would have to be my Scor Pal and I also love all of my PTI stuff.

Marge said...

I'd have to say my DIES, as I rarely make anything without a die of some sort. They are just a necessary staple to building any kind of project these days and work perfectly with your awesome stamp sets!!!

Lee Anne said...

This is a hard one. I have so many options from dies to buttons. But I guess I have to say that my stamps are my favorite. I love them all and love to find new ways to use them so that they are always "new" to me. Thanks for the great chance to win!

Barbra said...

This is a hard one. I would have to say punches and dies! To me it is like magic putting a fresh piece of plain paper in and getting something so special and perfect out!

Diane (fionna51) said...

Favorite...does that mean the one that I love the most, the one I use the most, the one that gives me the most special results even if I use it infrequently?

I would have to say that the product that gives me the most pleasure is my watercolors...both pencils and artists tube colors. I love how I can just make a simple image POP!

Thanks for the chance for these two sets...that are on my wish list...! Now if I could just win... :)

Holly Saveur said...

Just love all the PTI goods stamps, ink, felt,ribbon, buttons and paper!
And my cuttlebug and nesties.

Vera W. Yates (Ling) said...

I just discovered Perfect Pearl and I loved it! It added just the perfect touch to finish off my projects. :)

Lupe Rocamora said...

I would have to say my favorite products right now are my dies and impression plates. I have several dies from Spellbinders and have a good start on my PTI collection of dies and impression plates. Of course I wouldn't be able to use any of these without my wonderful Cuttlebug.

Thanks for the chance to win some great stamp sets.

cedargirl said...

I am very good friends with my Big Shot. We hang out alot. It helps me out of a crafting rut, it saves me time in making adorable favours, it gives me texture when I feel flat, it gives me shapes and shows it friendliness to all my die buddies no matter where they come from, it makes creating relaxing and customized. I {heart} it. Thanks Alli for the blog candy chance!

Toni said...

I love these stamps! My favorite product as got to be Nestablities! I use them on almost every card I make.

Sharron said...

Outside of clear stamps I would have to say my Cuttlebug. There are so many fabulous dies and I love embossing folders.

Barbara DeBose said...

I would have to say anything PTI!!! I'm an avid fan/collector. Thanks for the chance to win!!

Maureen W maureen@ukeecable.net said...

Hi As a new stamper, every week I have a new favourite! To pick one would be my cuttlebug love all the embossing plates. Just about to order some of the PTI ones.

Chally said...

My favorite would probably have to be ink...I use it on everything!
Thanks for the chance to win!

Deb Neerman said...

I love stamps ... and ink ... and stamps! As far as stamps go, I buy a lot of PTI ... and, of course, Stampin' Up. I prefer dye inks and I love Distress Inks!

Thanks a bunch for the chance to win your fab sets!

Cheryl said...

My favorites are sponges. I find that if a card needs just a little something, sponging is just that thing. It is simple and cheap and really makes a card look good. Thanks for the chance to win.
Cheryl Sims

Cheryl said...

Definitely my ATG gun. So stuff stays where I want it. Or...maybe my printer for all my digis I love so....

Kathleen said...

Hmmm-if I had to pick one item it would be my PTI stamps---there are any number of things I use, but I ALWAYS use my stamps!

Jamie K said...

Oh wow. What awesome candy.

I think my favoritest product (currently) is my cuttlebug. Because then I can use my spellbinders to make pretty shapes and die cut felt flowers (which is my newest and latest obsession).

Tara said...

Favourite product... hmm... that's a toughie. I'd probably have to say my Nesties... I've probably used them the most since I bought them (and I buy ALL of them!). Thanks for the lovely blog candy!

Donelda said...

I am totally addicted to BasicGrey papers ... it's kinda like a collection LOL!! I also love PTI of course - couldn't live without them!! Crossing my fingers!!

katrynka said...

Thanks for the chance to win:)
It is difficult to decide what are my favorites! I am very fond of stamps that coordinate with punches or dies because I like to "mass produce" cards so they help me make better cards more quickly. But buttons and rhinestones are great too!!

Lindzie said...

Right now...it's house of 3. They have some amazing stuff and it has been so inspiring!

Emily said...

Oh, I very much love my swarovski crystals. They come in so many colors-- I use them all the time!

Sylvia from Minnesota said...

I use nestibilities on almost everycard right now and I'm practicing with my Copic markers.

gladyschia2010 said...

I loving PTI! Thanks for the chance :)

Ana T. said...

I would have to say Scor-Pal and in second place are my stamp sets. BTW, I am still enjoying your Wise Owl that I bought when it first came out. I just LOVE everything about it! Love your work Alli!

Stacy said...

I like so many things! At the moment I have been using (and loving) my Big Kick a lot! With all of the PTI dies and Nesties out there, it has seen a LOT of action. BTW, I love Daily Designs and sentiments - such versatile stamp sets!

miriam daniels said...

I am addicted to embossing folders! :) Thanks for sharing.

ilovelucydog said...

I love your designs! Thanks for sharing them with us.

mamajulie said...

The one thing I can't live without is my papercutter--it's basic, but I can't cut a straight line for anything.

Jocelyn said...

I'm lovin' my cricut expression right now and my ATG gun!

maggiemeow said...

This was a tough one. I guess I have to say my Scor Pal, but my Cuttlebug comes in right behind it.

Anette Eakins said...

I would have to say my cuddlebug and nesties. I use them on just about every card I make. Love your stamp sets, especially the Take Three sets! I don't have them yet, but would love them!

Gwen said...

Hi Alli!
My stamping obsession is almost anything from Papertrey Ink! I love the ink colors, paper and STAMPS! I really enjoy seeing cards made by Papertrey designers on the different blogs. Thank you for all the time you give to sharing with us on your blog and CONGRATULATIONS your Highness-well deserved!
Gwen

Colleen said...

Oooh!!! Such great blog candy!
My favorite tool is my Tonic guillotine style trimmer. I use it on everything I create.
Hugs,
Colleen

misstuna said...

My favourite stamping/scrapbooking product has got to be Everyday Buttons Bits from Papertrey Ink.

Anonymous said...

COuld not live without my fingertip craft knife!

luv2talk

nina said...

Hmm... it WOULD be the Genesis if I had one! My fave tool is probably the ATG gun I purchased last year, with the CBug running a close second...

Kristie H said...

Thanks Alli for all the great inspiration. My favorite stamping product lately absorber. I know it sounds crazy but I love how clean it gets my stamps. But it's PTI's design team and stamp designers that have me constantly excited about what I can create the next time I sit down with paper, ink, and stamps.

Liliana said...

I would say anything PTI. I love all their stamps, ink, cardstock and ribbon! Thanks for the blog candy.

Heather from Maine said...

I would not want to be without paper which for me is where so much of my creative process begins

Sandy Kay said...

There are so many, but I'll have to say my most favorite is my Scor Pal! Thanks for the chance to win!

milkshake007 said...

Wow....favorite stamping product....that is hard to choose but for now I would have to say the dies from PTI. I only have two but I really like them so far. Can't wait to purchase their impression plates!

Cardivore-n-more said...

I love the new PTI stamps and their matching die sets! So, it's a tie.. Don't have any yet, but they are on the list...

Erika's Cupboard said...

Wow..this is a difficult question to answer but hummm let me think. I believe it's probably PTI's stamps. The DT over there are soo darned talented they could make a rock seem like the most important item you would ever need in scrapping!!! But yes, love their stamps!!Pop dots are pretty amazing too!! LOL Erika

Suzanne said...

Wow!!! Hard question. But the thing I can't live without is Stampin' Dimensionals. I go through those things like crazy!!!

Alyssa B said...

i'm just thankful for my handy old paper trimmer. It never lets me down!
