My Pal (Blog Candy)

Here's another adorable stamp that my husband bought me from Simply Betty Stamps for Christmas. I used a wonderful Spellbinders die to cut this out in a fun shape. Isn't she adorable? This would make a great banner if I cut out several of them and decorated it across a room.
If it is still tuesday, then you have time to sign up for the blog candy on saturday and sunday!! Quick before I announce the winners. Now for today's question, what's your favorite die cut/cutting system? WINNER Announced, SEE THE FEB 1ST POSTING!!

Project Materials: Cardstock (Bazzill); Rubber Stamp (Simply Betty Stamps); Ink (Memento, Colorbox Chalk); DieCut (Spellbinders Nestabilities); Bling (Prima); Ribbon (Prima); Brads (Making Memories); Adhesives (Glue Dots); Color (Copic Markers);

Oh my so pretty and just adore the colours just perfect for this beautiful Simply Betty Stamps image!

Rosalee said...

That stamp is totally adorable. I love the Spellbinder shape, so cute. My favorite die cutting machine (if it counts) is the Cricut...just recently discovered. All you do is punch in your work and sit back and let the machine do the cutting. Other then that I would go with Cuttlebug cause its the only one I know.
Hugs, Rosalee

She's adorable and fave cutting system I think would be Tim Holtz vagabond cutting system - it's on my wish list and die would be a magnolia doo-hickey her tree :)
thanks for the chance

Lovely image Holley. I love spellbinders, but I have bigshot, so use shims to cut with them. I am saving for a grand calibur :)

Such a cute image! Did you make this a cone to hold small gifts? I think your husband knows your taste pretty well to have picked this out for you. My favorite dies are spellbinders, but I'm quickly becoming a fan of Cherry Lynn Designs. My cutting system is a cuttlebug - had it forever and it works like a charm!

Penni said...

Wow this is gorgeous.

Your husband did an excellent job for Chirstmas! I love all of these stamps and what you've done with them! My favorite cutting system recently has been Spellbinders!

Betty Boo! said...

She looks so amazing! I love your coloring. She reminds me of Dorothy from Oz! Thank you so much for sharing your stuff with us on FB!!!

You ROCK!

Glennis said...

This is a wonderful shape - I have not seen it before - great possibilities.
I have a cuttlebug, so that has to be my fav, but would love to get a cricut one day

Flamenco92627/ Julieta said...

Super cute Holley! I love the shape too. The only system I have is the Cricut, made soo awesome with Make the Cut software.

She is lovely Holley! My favorite die cutting system is a scissor and my hands! I don't know any other as I am new to crafting and didn't even know what a die cut was until recently lol!
Love Pearl x

alethea said...

What a fabulous image!! YOu have the most amazing husband buying you stamps!! LOL :) I don't have a die cutting machine so i don't have a favourite, I just use punches and a good old pair of scissors. But I recently used a Big Shot and think I might have to save up for one of those!!! Hugsxx

Charlene Mitchell said...

Very cute Holley! The only cutting system I know is the Cuttlebug and I usually love it! My fav dies are Marianne's Creatables! Have a great nite Holley!

I must say your Husband has a good taste. Because this little girl are real sweetie pie. This can be awesome to put on the girls door with a sentiment on the other side "STAY OUT!!!" lol
Hugs Nataliya
PS. Not sure if Big Kick is my favorite, but this is only what i have. Love to have one day something more girly looking system.

cathy said...

She's very cute and I like the unusual shape. I use the Grand Calibur and have so many dies I like it's hard to pick a favorite, but I'll go with Labels 4. I use that one a lot.

THERESA said...

You are so right, she is cute!! The die cut is stunning and a banner would look so good. When the coloring is done perfect, one does not need a lot of embellies and this is just one of those, the image is centre stage, love it!!
RE: don't have any machines, lol, sorry about that one, have to hand cut.....hehehe
lotsa luv

Teresa said...

You are one lucky gal to have such a thoughtful hubby! Cute cute stamp and i love that banner. Nesties are my fave...wish i had them all!! And as far as cutters go, i use my cuttlebug more than anything else...simply because its so universal.
Hugs,

Sue in CT said...

Very cute! My favorite is the Big Shot simply because it is the one I have. However I have that Vagabond on my wish list (for many years now) and it is the one I would love to try. Now if it will become my favorite, I am not sure but right now it is Big Shot.
I am not sure if you are including cutting systems that do not use dies. If you are then I would say my Cricut. I have a few cartridges and love that it cuts it all out for me and no cranking or anything. Just a touch of a button.

Wifey Cookie said...

I am a big Provocraft fan. I have the Cricut Expression and the Cuttlebug. Both are presents from the dearest hubby. :)

Cheers,

Malinda said...

I love my big shot - especially when I can match my big shot to my Stampin' Up! stamps!

And the fact that I can also use cuttlebug dies in it!
