I really loved Donna Baker's halloween card using Celebrate the Season. Love her sponged clouds, and the double-stamping shadow on her sentiments. Lovely!

Here's the link over on Stamp TV's gallery: http://stamptv.ning.com/photo/celebrate-the-season-by-dbaker?context=featured

I love this stamp set that you're giving up as bog candy! So versatile. I recently bought Whimsical Wishes by Theresa Momber and I just can't get enough of those silhouette circles. See here what Melanie did with them. Still amazes me.

Gosh, there are two that I can't decide between. The first is the Inking Cuttlebug Folder video project by Gina K using the Signs of Autumn stamp set. I just love this technique and I learned of it first on Stamp T.V. Always will be a favorite. The other is one that I just came across today by Melanie using A Year of Leaves stamp set. I just love the way the leaves look embossed and then colored in. So pretty and elegant.

Janet said...

L really love the Celebrate the season stamp set and Donna Bakers card I love owls ao am naturally drawn to thwm also her sky on that card is amazing!

Teresa Jaye said...

oh, I love this idea center! My favorite today is the Signs Of Autumn leaf stamp using the Joseph's Coat technique. I popped over and watched the video - amazing! Thanks so much for all of your great ideas and technique videos - and for the opportunity to win this lovely stamp set!

--Marcy said...

Melanie's Stamps sets are always a prize! Win or not! Love the family card for your daughter!

Wide Eyed Stamper said...

Autumn is my favorite time of year, and I always love all of the DT projects. However, at this moment :)I am loving one of Gina K's techniques called Bleached Leaves. seen here; http://stamptv.ning.com/video/bleached-leaves

The stamp used is from the Autumn Splendor Stamp TV kit, one of my very favorites, every stamp in it is versatile and gorgeous!

debbie said...

I would just love to win this stamp set. I've never tried her stamps before.......
thanks for sharing and the chance to win.
hugs

Robyn said...

I like the card by Deb in the Garden Silhouettes stamp series-lovely water color look.
I also really like the basket set.

Teresa H. said...

I love Theresa Momber's card using the Heartfelt set - the pumpkins sitting in front of the fence. I love the 3-d feel to it and the richness of the colors - seems to capture the essence of falls.

Mari said...

I love going through your site. I love getting the emails and watching the video tutorials to get ideas to make cards. I'd be honored to win the stamp set you are giving for your blog candy. Thank you.

Joan said...

I think my favorite (although it is really hard to pick just one!) is the set called Whimsical Autumn, by Carolyn King. My dad is suffering with Alzheimers now, and I know what she went through watching her Grandma. My mom just passed away, and that has really taken a toll on my dad. They were married for 58 years! This stamps set bring so many memories of my parents. They loved fall, making applesauce. Seems like they were always battling the squirrles, and pussy willows were one of my mom's favorite. This is one of my favorite cards made from this set. http://stamptv.ning.com/photo/ck-squirrel-wonderful-surprise

I love Melanie's colouring tutorial and card for the Colored Basket Copic Tutorial.
http://stamptvstamps.blogspot.com/2011/09/colored-basket-copic-tutorial.html?
She used the Holiday Basket Stamps Set

Sandra J. Strickler said...

Sunflower basket by dbaker is my favorite, from the Holiday Basket stamp. I am a sunflower fanatic!!!

Bev said...

I LOVE the card Donna Baker has made with the "Celebrate the Season" set. I love the whole range of sets in the Release but I do seem to have a thing about Branches. My other Favorite set is Melanie's Basket set. I can't believe this will be the prize. How Exciting. Of Course now I just have to hope Mr. Random Stops at my number lol. But Seriously All the work is AWESOME and the Stamp Sets GORGEOUS, AS EVER............

Karen (TLgirl353) said...

I loved Gina's video with the trees from the new StampTV kit.

Donna Phelan said...

I would say my most favorite project to date is the Snowy Basket, from Melanie, using this very same stamp set,Holiday Basket. The shading/coloring of the basket is phenomenal. Adding the flower soft as snow, to the base of the image and on the poinsettias was brilliant. The added dimension she created for the flowers herself really makes them *pop*. The pine cones and pine needles just complete the entire scene! It Is GORGEOUS! After viewing this I almost feel "as if".....as if I could almost create this gorgeous project myself. And if I win, I would surely give it a good try! :)

Sherry said...

I would love to win this new basket set....I have seen it used on another blog hop and was sad I didn't have it so hope I win!!

marie41837 said...

I love Bakers Sunflower basket. I love sunflowers, my kitchen is sunflowers I would have whole house in sunflowers if it wouldn't drive my husband crazy,
I think the Holiday basket is my favorite stamp, would so love to win it.

Eleanor said...

I especially liked the "Basket color Tutorial #1" by Melanie Muenchinger using her new stamp set "Holiday Basket". She creates beautiful stamp sets and is thorough in the tutorials. On her blog, it is the project on Saturday, September 17, 2011.

I really liked Carolyn King's 'Whimsical Autumn' card. Here is the link:
http://stamptvstamps.blogspot.com/2010/11/whimsical-autumn.html
I think it is cute the way she had the squirrel on top of the apple basket - we are having the most difficult time keeping a squirrel away from our new birdfeeder right now so it really touched me. Thanks for the chance to win!

Kathy said...

I have been making cards with pictures for quite some time: it is a challenge to find the right picture (usually from Facebook) and then stamps or other graphics that really set if off. I get more compliments from those who receive them as the card is often the only personal one they have received.

judybob3 said...

Well, my all time favorite set is Autumn Splendor (though it's spelled Spendor on the site) so I must pick from those.........I love the Gatefold Card with a twist by Gina K.............it's so cool and I love the basket of apples best of all! :)

Just purchase two stamp sets. Botanical and By your side. But the Hoilday Basket was hard to leave for later. Would be great to win! Love all the idea's and inspiration I get from Stamp TV. Thanks.

Debbi said...

I love the Autumn Leaves 'Hello' card by Carolyn King. I love how she used white leaves on the colored background--so creative!

Donna said...

Such a hard decision to make, love so many, but one of my favorites is a card made with this very stamp set, that I was really thinking and wanting to get!! It is a card made by Deb Felts, "Thankful for You", and here is the link to the card, http://stamptv.ning.com/photo/thankful-for-you-9?context=featured.

Thanks for the chance to win this set, oh How I would love it and use it with the other basket sets I have.

Hugs to all!!
Donna

Oh, I would so love to win this set! Please choose me! I love all the ideas I get from Gina K - be it stamp tv or her blog or whatever.

Carrie said...

So many fabulous designs...it was very difficult to choose a favorite. I was consistently drawn to Theresa Momober's creations. Her "Thanksgiving Card" and her "stair-step" were stunning. They were done using the Autumn Leaves set.

kat said...

I absolutely LOVE Gnome One Like You; how clever!!! It can be used for so many occasions or for no occasion at all! What could be better? I think the cutie card by Cathy Tidwell is my fav!

Sharon said...

So hard to pick a favorite from so many great cards and stamp sets!
And the set you are giving away is definitely a winner! Would LOVE to have it!
Theresa Momber made a beautiful card using the Owl Always Love You set. The colors are just gorgeous and a neat design.

gobarb26 said...

I have 2 favorites. I like Lee's Glimpses of Autumn from the Autumn Splendor set and Gina's Sunflower Resist, also from the Autumn Splendor set.

I love that stamp set..so many uses. All of the cards are very pretty, but I think my favorite is Theresa Momber's cornucopia..I just have a thing about cornucopias and I love all of Theresa's cards, so this one just had to be my favorite. :) http://stamptvstamps.blogspot.com/2010/12/happy-thanksgiving.html

Patricia said...

Sandra said...

I loved one of Gina K.'s projects using this very basket stamp. It is by Melanie Muenchinger. It's the "Spring Basket & Basket Buddies Stamp Set." The title of the project is,"Using up your paper and silk flowers." I saw how to stamp the basket and then color it and then Gina showed how to make the basket looked worn. I love that technique. Thanks Gina. I am the gal that has been posting on your facebook site about why I "Stink at Stamping." Yep,that's me!!! I am looking forward to your demo on stamping so I can quit being, "STINKY about STAMPING". LOL!!!!!!! Sandra Hess

I really enjoyed the Hugs card with the grapes by Asela Hopkins from the Fruitful Harvest set. I don't normally think of grapes for fall, but the card is great.

My choice of sets for Fall is Carolyn King's Whimsical Autumn. My DMIL continues in the final stages of Alzheimer's after 18-years...my youngest child knows Grandma no other way but we talk about how Grandma is on the inside because DMIL does open her eyes when we sing to her 2 of her favorite hymns...and she opens her eyes when we say my husband's name. We talk about life from how she enjoyed it before she begain this life of otherwise being in her own world for many years.

Gayle said...

It's way too hard to choose only one card; but I was really drawn to Theresa's "Spooky" using Alicia's Feel The Magic stamp set. I guess I'm in the Halloween mood and wishing I purchased that set. Thanks for the chance to win Melanie's newest masterpiece.

Kittystamp said...

I love this stamp st, perfect for so many fall cards. Hope I win!

nana_4x said...

I really enjoyed "A Basket Full of Sunshine" by Tina Gilliland using Melanie Muenchinger's "Holiday Basket" Stamp Set. I love sunflowers...

Sylvia said...

It's difficult to choose a favorite from so many great choices. That being said, I found three card projects I would love to CASE: Theresa's Pumpkins2 using Autumn Leaves stampset; Lee's Glimpses of Autumn using Autumn Splendor stamp set; and Deb's Fall Shaker card using various stamp sets.

Sue D said...

I love this holiday basket card by Theresa (http://stamptv.ning.com/photo/holiday-basket-2) - the way she used the sunflowers as a main image and more flowers as the background is gorgeous, and the coloring is so gorgeous.

Julie said...

I have a couple that stood out to me but they are all fabulous....
I liked the gift tags from Asela using the Nesting stamp set and The Giving Tree stamp set from Theresa Momber.
I have really been into distressed looks lately so these two stood out to me. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win this great stamp set.

Autumn is my favorite season - I love so many of the Fall sets and cards the designers have made but one of my favorites is Theresa's "Autumn Pumpkins" card done with the Signs of Autumn set.

pamselinski said...

my favorite technique is creating texture with copic colorless markers. I love the copic markers and the colorless one is awesome. Gina demoed this technique recently with the release of the "Under the Weather" stamp set.

You are awesome giving away this stamp set designed by Melanie. Please let it be me.

Karen Lange said...

I LOVE Donna Baker's card with the little owl in the tree, fence and pumpkin made with Celebrate the Season set! I also love her quilting news!! It all inspires me!
