First Ever Blog Candy



  • Look at all the goodies. In honor of being the Featured Stamper on SplitCoastStampers this past Sunday I am going to give away my first ever blog candy. I had 8,000 hits on my blog from Sunday through Tuesday. Wow!! I couldn't believe that many people checked out my blog in a 3 day period. Thank you everyone for the wonderful responses I have had about my cards and the beautiful CASEs you have posted. And a big thank you to SplitCoastStampers for choosing me. I have made some wonderful, precious friends through this stamping hobby that we all love.
  • Contents of the blog candy are as follows: 1) Jigsaw Alphabet Chipboard Letters by Making Memories, 2) Uptown Purple Ribbon by American Crafts in 6 patterns, 3) Pink Chipboard Flowers by Heidi Swapp, 4) much sought after alterable mailbox from the Target $1 spot, 5) SU Build-a-Flower Accents & Elements Tin, and 6) Card Candy.
  • All you have to do to win this scrumptous pile of goodies is to leave a comment on this post telling me which card on my blog is your favorite and why. I will draw the winner on Sunday afternoon using Random.org.
  • Remember to check back on Sunday to see if you are the winner. You will need to email your address to me so that I can get the goodies to you.

Thanks for playing!!!

Are you kidding me? We have to pick only one favorite? You cards are all awesome. Nice work TFS

angie britt said...

I'd have to agree with Anne. But, your valentine cards are what got me to your blog. The color combos are what I like the most!

Sheryl Sagucio said...

There is NO one card that is a favorite. There's just no way. I love the ALL!!! I do love pink & brown so with that said...the cards you did with the One of a Kind set were just beautiful. Love the colors & those hand cut flowers. But like i said, I can't just pick one....:0) TFS

jeannen2 said...

If I had to narrow down my favorite, it would be tough, but I do like the One of a Kind cards that are done with the berry bliss paper. My absolute favorite, the one which had me "oohing and ahhing" in your gallery is the "little birdie told me" most recent cards. I love the bright colors you use on your cards! It's so refreshing! Jeanne

Natalie said...

Beate's Weekend Sketch #17 is my favourite card of the many beautiful cards on your blog.

September 19th. That's the day I became addicted to your blog! That card just spoke to me. I loved the colors, the use of the scallop punch and the swirly background!! From that card on i have been in love with your style and blog! You are SO VERY TALENTED!!
Thank you for sharing all you do with us!

I have admired and "favorited" many of your cards on splitcoaststampers for some time, but just recently discovered your blog. Wow! I like many others find it nearly impossible to choose a favorite, but the One of a Kind cards in the browns and pinks are BEAUTIFUL!! Thank you so much for sharing your amazing talent with us!!

Regan said...

Love the "for You" card...I like that style- punchy colours but not too busy. You really do nice work!

Anonymous said...

I've just recently found your blog and I love it. Pick 1 card? Impossible ! I love them all. Your color combos are amazing(that's what I find the hardest myself). Keep it up I am so inspired by your talent.
Congrats on the hits and awesome candy:)

So ALL of them doesn't count??!

I love the Z Christmas card. It's clean, beautiful and makes great use of a photo thingie (forgotton the word!!).

I'm determined to try to make a card in this manner soon, I have been completely inspired. Love all your wok and that you're a really lovely person too makes visiting your blog all the nicer. Keep crafting!

Nancy Riley said...

So many reasons to celebrate, Pam! You deserve ALL of it ... stampers love your work, and they love YOU! You know it's about impossible to pick just one card as a favorite! .... but So Much Wonderful posted on 12/08/07 and Cutie Pie Vases In Vogue posted on 8/25/07 always stand out for me!

Lori Mueller said...

Oh, this is sooooo NOT fair....pick ONE she says! Muwahaha....that's just evil! I love them ALL, but as the 'rules' say, I like the "Fall Vases in Vogue". I just got this set and loved the whimsical appearance of this card. Now, since I don't always follow the rules strictly....I really LOVE the box that you made your MIL. So elegant! Great blog; congrats as the featured stamper; and thanks for a chance to win some great blog bling!

Jamie Tyson said...

If I have to choose just one it would be Bright Baroques from July 23rd. It has been my favorite club card we've made. I just love how the colors work together. It is a stunning card IRL. I love to make this one to give away. Thanks for your constant inspiration. Congrats Featured Stamper!!!

SmilynStef said...

I like the gift cards you made for your mom & MIL for the holidays.

CutItOutCreations said...

I have to say that my fav is your Boho Fun card. I absolutely love, love, love the color combo's, your use of stamps on the scalloped edge, and that beautiful wide ribbon! I aspire to be even a quarter as talented as you.

stampin_melissa said...

You are SOOOOO not fair! I have to pick ONE? Well, I definitely like the lighthouse one that I commented on the other day. Hmmmm, ohhh, I also like the Embrace Life in blue you posted on 26 December. You have some great artwork! Thanks for the opportunity for some blog candy!

Anonymous said...

Can I pick two? If I can, my first pick is your three-paneled tag card. The colors were awesome. Ok, the second one is the color comob challenge card with old olive, more mustard and bashful blue. I loved the way it came out and was shocked those colors went so well together thanks to your design. Both of these cards were immediately cased!

--Melissa (melissalance @ SCS)

Elsie said...

since i could only pick one i love the happy hearts day 2 card. but i love all your cards. TFS!

Pam W said...

WOW!! I am starstruck! I just found your blog and see that I have lots to study while I'm here. Your style is so beautiful and picking one favorite card is challenging. BUT, your Whimsy Tag Card really caught my eye. The colors blend so well and I love the layout.

Tara said...

what fun, fun blog candy!! I love your boho fun card....why?...because I LOVE the "fat" ribbon and I love the chocolate paper! It's a gorgeous card!! :)

Jules said...

Congratulations on being FS!! I love the "Good Luck Kathy" card. Reason why - I JUST ordered all the supplies for that card and they just came in. Thanks for sharing such great ideas! :) Julie

Kari said...

I love all of your cards! I have only been checking in on your blog for a few weeks! You are a great inspiration! I think my favorite card would have to be the one under Woo Hoo New Stamps. The one where you used One of a Kind, Berry Bliss DP and the fantastic Chocolate Chip ribbon! Thanks for the great blog and the candy too! :O)

Anonymous said...

I am new to your stamping blog. So happy to have come upon it. My favorite card is "Simple Elegance". Actually, all your cards rock. But I like this card because I like the color combo, and it is very doable to re-create.Thanks for sharing.

Silke said...

First of all - I like all of your cards!!!

But my favorite is the card you posted on October 24th. It is your "Happy Wedding Day" card!!!

I love everything about it!!! Great colors and super elegant!!!

Thanks for treating us.....

Dawn Easton said...

Hey Pam! Are you serious? You want me to choose just ONE card...sorry can't do it...lol...LOVE way too many! haha! I am drooling over your Boho Cards from last Friday! I don't have those stamps or paper yet :( After holidays I'll be ordering! YAH! congrats on all the hits but goodness girl...you deserve it! Your work is FAB!

Giovana said...

it is very hard to pick only one card because ALL your cards are AWESOME!!!!!
But after looking and looking I would say that I love the Boho Fun you made on January 18th, the colors are perfect, the layout, I mean everything.
You are so creative. Thanks for the chance to get some goodies. I love blog candy!!!!

God bless you
Giovana

Kristi said...

Hi Pam, I have to agree with many others, that ALL of your cards are great. My favorite however are the ones using berry bliss DP. Your work is very inspiring! Thanks! Kristi

Anonymous said...

It is very hard to pick just one of your cards, but I really like the "One of A Kind" with the berry bliss paper. It is beautiful.

Kathi G. said...

I recently discovered your blog through a fellow stamper. I just love all your cards. There is one that seems to jump out at me, though. It was one of the cards posted on Dec. 26th. The one I like is the one that uses the Embrace Life set with the words "thanks SO much" on the front. I loved how you stamped the flower on the Ginger Blossoms DS paper and cut it out. I had never thought of doing that. I love it!

kdriesen said...

I have to agree with everyone- it is so hard to choose because your cards rock! Every single one. If I had to choose, though, I would either go with the Happy Heart Day cards (any of them- I love the set and you do amazing work with it! I like how you use colors other than red and pink- it's refreshing) -or- the Whimsy Tag Card. I've never seen a tag card before, and I love it! I like how it is small and you can use it for practically anything! The DSP paper looks so cute together (I never would have though 3 separate patterns would like so coordinated!), and I love the stamps! Way, way, way cute! Awesome work, Pam!

Marsha said...

Oh, like we are supposed to pick one from all your beautiful cards? Well, probably Time Well Spent 3 might be it because I love valentines, hearts, and red. But the one you posted today is as cute as can be and I love the way the embossing and the cut outs match.

Roxanne M said...

There are so many that I have drooled over, but I am especially fond of the bird with polka dots. Very memorable. Such creative work and great color combinations and just the right amount of touches. Thanks Roxanne

diane mcvey said...

Wow, very hard choice! If forced to, I would have to say Time Well Spent 2, the colors are really rich, and I love the layout of the card. But ALL your cards are gorgeous!!! You are VERY talented!
Thanks for the chance at the blog candy, it is YUMMY! :D

mperezlope said...

Impossible to pick just one. In the slide show there is one using Embrace Life that as soon as I get my set, I'm going to try. Love, love your blog. An inspiration.

Lori said...

So hard to pick just one, but of your recent ones the "Enjoy" card using the Bali Breeze paper is my favorite. I love the layout and how you used the DSP and the colors. Really I love everything about it!

Mercy said...

this one is my fave....

I love the pink and brown card made with one of a kind. It is stunning with the berry bliss paper and chocolate silk ribbon. I do have to say it was very difficult picking a favorite since all of your cards are so beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration!! Ronda

Vicky said...

Season of Woodsy Joy, if I have to just pick one...! Everytime you post a new card I think it's my new favorite!! You are a very talented lady! TFS all you do!

Pam, you make such great cards that it's so hard for anyone to choose just one! ;) I am loving what you have been doing lately with the little birdie told me set. You're color combos are awesome too! Congrats on being the FS...I have not yet gotten the chance to play :( but I will!

Carrie said...

I found your site because of the elephant card(s) so I must choose that card. You are very talented and I like all your cards. Also, I got to get that stamp!

StampDancer said...

Wow - great candy! The one I absolutely love best is a card you posted Dec. 26. It uses Bali Breeze, the scallop punch, the ENJOY word stamp. I just love the layout, the colors and it's eye-catching, clean presentation.

reeree62 said...

Did someone say "blog candy"? LOL! Well, you can't be serious, to pick just ONE card? I don't think so! Thanks for all your gorgeous projects. Truly inspiring!

Anonymous said...

There is no way I can pick one-- Your cards are all winners- You are so talented and creative. Thanks for a chance to win your blog candy--Congrats on so many hits--Karen Naber(hpnaber@msn.com)

Stampaholic said...

I really like your Birdie card. Your use of the textured base, the bling, the paper piercing. I love it all. Lots of wonderful elements without loosing a great clean look. I just started receiving you updates. You are so talented! Lisa

Dawn said...

Wowsa! Would love to win your awesome blog candy. I narrowed my favorites to 2 - your Card Box 1 and the True Friend that says thanks. I love that 3 part flower and the card box is just so cute and practical. Thanks!

GAZ said...

Hard to pick just one ... but I love the Pink & Brown card using your new stamps with "You are One of a kind" - Berry Bliss Paper.
The White get dots are great and I want to try that technique. New to stamping and I look forward to your Blog and love all your creations.

The Pamperin's said...

I'm going to say the "fishing you were well" card because of its nice clean lines. I love the boxy layering of squares, love the bright colors, and love the little different tie at the right hand side.

Rae said...

Okay, so I'm new at this leaving comments thing and left one that I don't know where it went! I agree with so many others about having to choose just one card! They are terrific. I do love the Boho cards, and one other favorite is the "Enjoy 2" card. What a fun sentiment to send, especially if it looks beautiful!

Leesa B said...

Love all your beautiful cards! Some of my very favorite are the birdies and your Boho cards!Thank you for all the daily inspiration; it is such a blessing. I hope I win!!!

tionya said...

It's almost impossible to pick just one! They are all gorgeous! But I definitely love the polka dot elephants! They just make me smile!

Cori Smith said...

You so deserved being picked as the featured stamper! It's so funny b/c I have so many of your cards already saved to my favorites. I couldn't decide between these two cards of yours "Enjoy" and "Stamplajolia". I was really drawn to the colors and w/ the 2nd one, I loved the layout and the way you made those tabs. Thanks so much for sharing!

Tanja said...

I love your "mommy and baby bugs" card, but really, it's tough to pick! You do a great job with colors and layout. Thanks for the inspiration!

Grace said...

Just recently joined your blog. I love the simplicity of your cards and have been discovering them ever since. Can't pick a favorite yet because they are all GREAT!

Brenda said...

" Mission Impossible" ...that is what this is. I have reviewed all of them twice, which is really the third time since I subscribe to your blog, I still cannot decide. Any card I pick would be unfair to the others, so I am not going to choose one.
You are one very talented individual, your attention to detail & creative flair amaze me. I do not know what you do as a profession, but you should be a designer for SU or heck just design your own line. I know I would be a customer !
Happy Days !

Jodi said...

Your cards are way too cute to have to pick just one! I love the "I'm Bright Again" card because I love the Double Lines and Doodles set!

Therastampist said...

Pam - You have such beautiful cards, it is so hard to pick! I have to say, though, that I love the Baby Jesus is Born card. I am impressed with what you did with a set that has been a challenge for me. Great use of color, etc. Thanks for being an inspiration! Sue

charlene.herter said...

I love black & white cards so the wedding card on Nov 11 is my favorite. I think you called it Bridal Bouquet. It is beautiful.

Melissa Caufield said...

My favorite card of yours is your Bella Baby card posted on Nov. 2nd. I have it (and your blog) saved under my favs! I think I was drawn to it because of your use of color, layout, and because I have yet to buy any Bella stamps, but I love them all. I think maybe that's a sign I need to get at least one huh? Thanks for sharing all of your talent with us!

AnneMarie said...

my favorite is your zfold card
http://stampingpam.blogspot.com/2007/10/z-fold-club-card.html
I like it because it actually uses the metal embellishment for the purpose it was given! great job!

LettyLian said...

It's hard to pick just one, I really love all of your cards. One of my favorites is the card you posted on November 7, "Starving Artistamps Wedding Card".

Denise (denidill) said...

I love your blog and read it whenever you post....it would be hard to pick just one card....I guess Boho Blossoms if I have to pick one.....GORGEOUS.

Congrats on being chosen Featured Stampers on SplitCoast. You deserve it!

jaybirdhaws said...

I love all of your cards but I love what you've done with the birdie cards. I didn't really know quite how to use the build-a-brad and your birdie cards inspired me. Thanks for sharing your great talent!
