Quick! I'm on a deadline!

This will be a quick post because I have a midnight deadline and no glass slippers! I'm rushing over to the Tiffany Doodles website to turn in my card for this month's sketch challenge. She's got a bunch of free sample digi stamps, something I seem to suddenly have a rampant addiction to since I bought a few off of etsy. Then, I found the Free Digi Stamps Website, which then led me to Paper Craft Planet and finally to Tiffany Doodles, where I then found this challenge. It's all very Rube Goldberg, I know.She has a nice selection of sample digis, but this old-timey duck toy was my favorite by far. I love the sort of dingy nostalgia it has.

What are all these other pictures about? Well, I just finished a slew of swaps before today's deadline, including a mail art postcard swap via Club Scrap. Have I ever mentioned how much I adore mail art? If not, I really should have. Anyway, this is my contribution. My main concern is will they hold up in the mail or shred when they hit the mail sorter outer machine.


And finally, here is my contribution to the Fiskateers Ribbon/Cupcake ATC swap. And what do you know? It has one of those first few digi stamps I purchased featured. Funny how things come full circle.
Now it's your turn! Leave me your favorite stamp or digi stamp company's name in your comment and you will be entered to win a Martha Stewart mouse-edge punch! I love mine, and I hope the winner will love this one!

Veronica, My favorite stamp is one of Ian from The Greetings Farm. I haven't ever ordered another one of thier stamps. I am torn about whether I want the "real thing" or a digi stamp. I like the potential that digital stamps have. For one, I would never smear the image, make it darker/lighter in different places and having the option of making it different sizes makes it much more versitile.

Thank you for the chance to win the cute little mousies!

And, I am so sorry you missed the deadline! Your card is so cute! She mentions July 7, maybe you can enter it then. If they have a certain theme, I hope it fits!

Hey Veronica! I couldn't help but want to stop by and tell you about an on line company I've been purchasing from this year. It's called "I brake for stamps". Easy to find just type ibrakeforstamps.com

The artists are great, the selection is fun and plentiful. I'm saving up right now for a stamp called "Garbage can cats". I know I can have fun with it.

I would have had to say Stampin' Up! stamps first but then an AMAZING thing happened, I bought some sets from PAPERTREY INK and I am sooo hooked. I got the best images from their stamps. The other company I love soooo much is TAYLORED EXPRESSIONS. They have the most adorable CUPCAKE stamp sets. I want them all!!

OOPS!!! I left my comment under the WRONG account!! OOPS, My comments about STAMPIN UP! PAPERTREY INK and TAYLORED EXPRESSIONS should have been from my POLKA CABANA account, SORRY!!! Oh, and I am JEANNIE FISKATEER #7214

my favorite brand of stamp is probably stampin up since I'm in a club every month that uses those stamps but I'm also diggin' a lot of Fiskars Stamps at the moment as well.

I have so many stamps from different companies, but my favorites are from Stampin' Up!!!

Jachelle said...

My stamps all range from different companies, but most of my favorites are from a company called 'blue ridge impressions', which is a faith based company. My next favorite company would be heart and soul rubber stamps.

Cheers from a fellow fiskateer!

Oh, sorry, my favorite stamps are from www.thestampsoflife.com. That is Stephanie Barnard, who used to work for BHG Scrapbooks Etc. magazine and now has her own stamps. I hope you like them. They stamp really clean! Kelly R. Fiskateer #6849

I love the Stamps of Life - stamp sets. It is a monthly kit club that you pay only $11.95 for an AWESOME stamp set each month. I LOVE them!!

Kelly Sas said...

Your card is cute. Thanks for the chance to win the punch. I enjoy the Fiskars stamps. I find I am just buying acrylic stamps now as they don't compare to the rubber stamps for storage and sometimes quality.

Kelly Massman said...

I would have to say Hero Arts! I hope I'm not too late!
Thanks!
