Blog Candy!

I have never personally won any blog candy, and I've never offered any - so this is a whole new experience for me! I LOVE giving door prizes at my workshops and Stamp Camps because it's so much fun to see how happy people get when they win something. So, hopefully this will bring someone a bit of stamping fun!

For my first ever blog candy I'm totally copying Kristine, from Ink Something! Thanks, Kristine!! She had the great idea of sharing some unused stamp sets with others - instead of trying to resell them, she's offering them as candy (go check out her stuff - it's fun!).

Doesn't this happen to everyone? You want something - MUST have it! You save, maybe you even manage to get it on sale. And then...you never even open it. Yikes!

My Blog Candy is 2 great retired SU! Stamp Sets - Little Layers (which I totally LOVED and then never used!) and Suitable for Framing (another cute one that I just never managed to use!). Both are cut, mounted, and unused. I'm also including a new pack of Stampin' Up! assorted card stock in the awesome new In Colors.

All you have to do is leave me a comment with your name, where you are from, and answer the question: What stamp set (SU! or other) or product did you buy with full intention of using it forever...and then it just sat all alone and forlorn! :)

I'll use a random number generator to draw the winner on Saturday, July 7th, at 7:00am CST.

Best of luck!!

I'm Kristine from Ontario, Canada. I've had the happy harmony set for at least 6 months now, I got it as a gift. I just cut and mounted it this weekend, but I still didn't use it!

Shannon K said...

Hello, I am Shannon from Houston area. I got Fun with Shapes, thinking there would be endless possibilities to do with it. When I got it, none of these possibilities were found. I feel like it is an orphan stamp set sitting in my cabinet!! I think the last time I actually touched it is when I mounted it.

Kathy W said...

Thanks for the great offer of blog candy! I'm Kathy W from Eugene, Oregon. I bought a SU set from the holiday mini...I think it was called Quick Cards...I've only used it once and I find it hard to incorporate the stamps onto bigger cards.

Tami said...

Great candy you are sharing...I'd love to play with the new colors! I'm Tami in Southern California and I have a set called Sweet & Simple that still hasn't been inked up.

scfranson said...

You have a wonderful blog! I'm Claudia from WI. I haven't bought many SU stamps and I love and use them all.

Jan Scholl said...

I am from FLushing MI and the set I just dont use is the one with the giant rose-I dont remember the name but so many were complaining it was discontinued this year, I just dont like it up close I guess.

CAKVD said...

Hello! I'm Cheryl from Madison, Wisconsin. Thanks so much for visiting my blog today! Good idea for me to get the dimensions of the pics in the layout!! Since my money is limited, I do some serious thinking before I buy a stamp set, to ensure that I will use it. However, I got Good Things Grow and have only used it once! If you have any ideas for this set, please let me know!! Thanks!

Tami said...

My name is Tami and I live in Knoxville, TN. I try to use all, if not most, of my stamps at least once a month but I'm having trouble using the big blossom from SAB and I bought a light table (not SU) and have yet to use it!

Monika said...

Hello, my name is Monika and I am from Ontario, Canada. So far I have used all my stamp sets, not too much lately cause it is hard to stamp with 2 little girls around.

Sara said...

Hi, Sara from Oregon here and I am just getting started in the stamping/card making realm and do not have anything that I haven't used yet, I am sure that there will be something soon...

Angel W said...

Oh, my...I have many sets that fill that bill. I have too many to appreciate them all. So, I'm trying not to buy any more. :-)

Lori said...

My name is Lori and I'm from Maryland. I bought Seeing Spots last summer on my first order from the new SU! catalog and have rarely, if ever, inked it up . . .

Melissia said...

Great blog candy!! My name is Melissia and I am in Alabama. I didn't think I could like without the SU set And Everything Nice. I used it once. It retired and I even had trouble parting with it when I sold it. Not sure what it was about that set.

SmilynStef said...

I'm Stephanie from Iowa. I had to have the Highways and Byways background stamp, but it seldom sees ink.

I'm Geraldine from California. I don't own any SU! stamps yet :( however, the product I've used only once was my Fiskars circle cutter.

Linda SS said...

Hi, I'm from Washington. I just had to have Very Punny and so far have not used it. I really do intend to use it because I really do love what others have done with that set.

doverdi said...

Hello from Diane in Ontario, Canada. I have bought a few stamps from other companies that I just had to have and have yet to use. As far as my SU sets, I don't own many SU sets so most of them have been used fairly often. My problem is, I'm bored with them now. lol

maiahs_momma said...

My name is Catherine, and I live in Nova Scotia :)! Great blog candy :D! I would have to say that I had full intentions of using the "Sizzix Sidekick", but it is def. has been put on the shelf. Tee hee actually trying to sell it :P, so I can get a "Cuttlebug".

Denise said...

Hi there from NYC, New York! Your creations are lovely, I saved quite a few to my favs! TFS!

foodpartyfun said...

Awesome blog candy! I am Pat and I live in Alabama. The set I "had to have" and have yet to ink up is, Sweet Shapes. I look at it often, but can't seem to get inspired to do anything with it.

Debby Winters said...

Hey there! Great idea for blog candy!
I found your blog today through "Stampin When I Can"
I just have one set that I haven't used yet but I have only had it for a month! It's Pocket Fun.

#1volunteer said...

Where do I start? I have so many sets that have been used only a few times then I have the ones I can't put down. (Baroque Motifs!!) I bought Word by Word BG and thought I could use it for scrapbooking and tons of cards. I have NEVER inked it! (I'm so ashamed.) However, thanks to you, I just went and dug it out and am deteremined to use it TODAY!

Elaine said...

Elaine Phillips from Seattle, WA.
I bought best of cluck with THE best of intentions....at least it got mounted! LOL I hope to still use it some day!

Allison said...

Hi there! Super-duper candy! I had to have Shades of Nature from last year's Spring Mini. And alas, there it sits all sad and lonely!

janet allen said...

I bought Art of Life a year ago and still haven't used it. It's a shame because I've seen others make beautiful cards with it, which is why I got it in the first place. You just inspired me to get it out, thank you.

michaela said...

That chipboard house is too awesome! I never use my alphabet stamps or punches. I even have a Cuttlebug alphabet set. They are all gathering dust bunnys.

melissa roth said...

Hi from the Pacific NW where we spend most of our free time camping. Therefore I don't have a lot of freetime to spend stamping. So probably half of the stamps I own haven't been used yet. My grandma goes to a Senior Center and they craft together. You have just inspired me to donate a few of them to her friends at the center.

Amy Cortez said...

Hi Leah, it's Amy C. from Houston. I am fairly new to the SU sets, I have not yet used my Christmas set, I am hoping the reason is because Christmas has not yet passed!

Cathy said...

Cathy saying hello from Cleveland, Missouri..that's right Missouri (not OHIO). I would say the SU Big Blossom, I kept telling myself that I will use it! Wow what AWESOME AWESOME sweet candy you are sharing with your readers. Count me in...who can resist all this SU goodies? Not me. My mind is going crazy thinking of all the stuff I can do with this candy. Thanks for a chance.

Desiree Rose said...
