Sizzix & Spellbinder Nestabilities Blog Candy Giveaway!

Hello my faithful blog readers! And hopefully this is being read by some new readers, as well!

In an effort to thank you all for visiting, I have decided it's time to give out some more blog candy!

As most of you likely know by now, I LOVE Sizzix products! Well, I am getting to love Spellbinders more and more too. So, I'll be giving away dies from both companies, along with some specially sized papers from Sizzix.


Here's what I am giving away:


The dies are: Spellbinders Nestabilities "Labels Two" set; Sizzix decorative strip Branch, Cherry Blossom die; Sizzix medium Flower, Pansy; and Sizzlits Dragonfly #3 die. Aren't they great?


And here are the papers. There are 3 paper pads each with 80 sheets of 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" papers in solids and prints. There are pastels, earth tones and rainbow colors.


And here's the best part- well, maybe not the BEST part, as the best is the prize, lol. But anyway, it's super easy to enter this giveaway. All you have to do is become a follower of my blog, and leave a comment telling me you are a new follower. And, if you already are a follower, then just comment telling me so. Want multiple entries? Every day you leave a comment you will get another entry (one per day) until the drawing. But you can start now, and if you come back and comment every day, you can get up to 5 entries total. You have until 11:59 pm (pst) on Tuesday Sept. 27th, and I will announce the randomly picked winner on Wednesday Sept. 28th.

My only requirement for entry is that you have a mailing address within the United States or Canada, as the cost of postage outside of these Countries is just way too costly. I hope you understand ;-)

Thanks for stopping by and GOOD LUCK!

And now, to share a card I made:



I love this stamp. It is made by Stampendous and if I recall correctly I believe I found it on eBay. In any event, it's among my favorite sentiment stamps.


I used the Sizzix/ Stampin' Up! Vintage Wallpaper impressions die on SU! Marina Mist card stock, and then sponged Early Espresso ink over it. I also distressed the edges and sponged more ink on it. The ribbon is Chocolate Chip satin, and I added some Silver Bells Robins Nest dew drops in the corner. The base of the card and the layer behind the sentiment is Early Espresso card stock.


In the corner is a Sizzix die cut cross made with SU! Brushed Silver card stock.

Thanks again for stopping by. I hope you'll leave a comment, become a follower (if you aren't already) and enter my drawing!
See you soon!
