A Scrappy Bloggy Giveaway

Edited to add: We, (referring of course to the royal we...) have a winner! Click here to read more about her!
This is my first ever participation in a Bloggy Giveaway Carnival! I'm very excited. I'm not exactly sure why, but I'm finding it exciting. Hey - I'm a SAHM... I got excited when a door-to-door salesman rang the bell Friday afternoon and offered promises of a clean house and increased property values if I bought a $70 bottle of his cleaning potion... So far the bottle hasn't moved, but I'm watching it closely for the first signs of life... Am I wrong to think that for $70 the bottle should actually do the cleaning itself???

Anywho - I do want to say, "Thanks for stopping by". I love the convenience of having guests when I'm in my PJ's and it's "OK". But - you didn't come here for that... you came for the goods! So on to it.

This giveaway is supposed to "reflect me" so I figured the easiest way to do that right now was to give away something "scrappy". Who knows... maybe I'll give away something "weight loss" oriented next time... or maybe one of the kids... But for this time it's going to be something scrappy.

I'm giving a brand new set of rubber stamps called Chanteuse, by Inque Boutique. This is a limited edition set - there are only 1,000 out there - and Chanteuse is the mirror image of the Nightingale set that is available for sale at the Inque site. The style (swirly & birdy) is very popular with scrapbookers and paper crafters right now. So even if you're not one of those yourself - this would make a nice gift... But be warned - it does say "Promo Only" and "Savoir Free!" on the package... So the recipient might think you a cheap skate... But on the flip side - it also says, "a $10 value!" So that's something, huh?
If you haven't guessed yet, yes... I won these in a contest/drawing - but I've got so many swirly stamps... and believe in sharing the "wealth". These have never been used, but from what I know, they work just like the popular clear acrylic stamps, in that you can see where your design will be stamped due to the close cut of the rubber to the design and the design placement markings on the back of the stamps. They store nicely too - this set fits nicely in it's CD case and even comes with customizable labeling for the side or the end, so you can easily find it later.

The "RULES"


  • This contest is open to United States and Canadian mailing addresses.
  • The contest will end Sunday, April 27th, at midnight CDT. One winner will be chosen from the comments by Random.org and notified by e-mail on Monday, April 28th.
  • If the winner does not respond within 3 (three) business days another winner will be drawn.
  • Leave me a comment (link at the end of this post) before midnight on Sunday, April 27th, and tell me what you'll do with these stamps when you win them.
  • You don't have to be a "blogger", but be sure to leave me your email address in your comment or in your blog profile so that I can contact you.

  3. Great stamp set! I'd create some wonderful scrappy pages of C&C's pictures. I think the swirls would make first grunt images a little prettier than how they actually sound....Chloe's making some great grunts right now, too......

    No matter how many swirls you have, you never have enough.I would use in a class project, send you a card and you would want the set back.

  18. Ohhh...This is where you leave a comment. I didn't read all the small stuff under your blog entries.
    Anyway, I always enjoy reading your blogs. You are an inspiration with the weight loss. Even tho I have only lost 8lbs.
    Your kids are so talented! I just love the penquin sculpture. What detail for a boy his age.
    I see why you just had to have that outfit for your daughter...she looks so adorable in it.
    Love the 911 story. I'm glad I'm not the only one that has happened to. Only I was awaken at 1:30 in the morning with them at the door. Apparently, my stepdaughter didn't believe that they showed up either.
    Good luck at giving the kids away, I've never had any success giving mine away. And as much as I love children, I must be honest and say...I'd rather have the stamps...LOL
    I will end this book now and since you only asked for a comment...

    GREAT BLOG SARA!

    Happy Scrappin'

  29. I think that the swirlies would make excellent background stamps. I have recently started using more stamps and I would like to play with these bad boys. I would also share them with my momma who is becoming a simply FABOO card maker!

  31. Those are really cool... when I doodle, it tends to be swirls like those, but sometimes I'm really hesitant to just draw on something if I actually want it to be a thing, because sometimes I mess up. I love stamps though!

    ReplyDelete
  32. If I won those I think I'd use them in my daughter's scrapbook - which is only to age 6 months and she's 3 1/2!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Cool! If I win, I would share with my daughter.

  37. Love your sense of humor! Yes, I too think that bottle should stop being so lazy, get off it's keister and start cleaning!

    I'm sort of stamp challenged lately & have a ton of swirl stamps, so take me out of the drawing...just wanted to pipe up & say if you're giving away your children or weight loss supplies next...I'll take a child BUT you get a 17 yo teenage girl in exchange. I believe you should always have something to give in return. : )

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would love to win the stamps. I am a sucker for swirls. I have not stamped in nearly 3 years but I am itching to get back to it. So if I won those, who knows, they could be the star of the first card I make in 3 years! :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Cute, cute, cute! I would use them frequently on my scrapbook pages! Oh how my friends would be jealous...it's ok though, I would share!!! Thanks!

  41. Well, we have a vast array of stamps but none like the ones you're giving away. They would make great card designs. My oldest daughter loves to make her own cards and is quite good at it. She's 17, so I'd probably give it to her and let her create away.
