Blessed

Here's an awesome image from Bugaboo, she's called Love Angel. I thought this gorgeous angel image would be just perfect for my celebration as well as the current contest over at YSBP.  They are having an anything goes contest and you get an extra entry if you use a Bugaboo stamp.  I hope you will share a card with them this month. 

OK, so just a reminder for the new people, winners will get drawn from the posting yesterday (Feb 1st) all month long, and then winners will get drawn from each daily post....

I ask questions, like today, to help me learn about you, what you like (and perhaps don't like) so if I send you a package perhaps I have something special around here just for you!!  So it's definitely to your advantage to take a second and answer the question!!

Question of the day
What's your favorite stamp type?  wood mounted, clear mounted, red rubber, digi?
I used to say rubber, but at this stage, I am in between rubber and digi stamps.

How about you?

Hmm my favorite must be clear stamps, because you can actually see what you are stamping and you can stamp it exactly where you want them. But I use digis quite a lot too. :)
Again, great coloring and gorgeous card:)

Shelley said...

I use any form of actual stamps, red rubber, clear, unmounteds are favored but I do have them with wood blocks too. I still do not use digis, I like actual stamping and I guess the ink in my printer is wrong for them, they smear on me. Love the angel card, it is perfect for this time as you truly blessed.

Hi Holley gorgeous image and beautiful card.

To answer your question of to day. I love wooden and rubber stamps.......but as thy say it cost more than Clear and digi.
But I use all of these stamps, and with clear stamps you need not so much space also rubber stamps.
But as you know I love all kinds.

Such a pretty creation :-)
I am a great fan of clear clings as I am allergic to rubber. !! LoL I do have lots of rubber stamps but I have to wear gloves to use 'em hee hee xxxx

KarinsArtScrap said...

Holley I forgot to ask must we put a photo on our blog for your months candy?

vinita jain said...

Cute image and lovely creation Holley!
I always love to play with clear stamps only and we can see clearly while stamping and not so much costly too!

Melody S. said...

I don't have a preference between rubber and clear, but I really prefer unmounted. I have REALLY limited storage space now and wood mount just doesn't work well anymore. I have unmounted everything I have. Happy Feb 2nd BTW! Love the angel! Excellent fussy cutting!

Kaija said...

Really beautiful card and a charming image!
My favorite is a rubber stamp and digital.

Tracy Welham said...

Fabulous card, I love the image and it stands out beautifully on that background.
Tricky question, all depends on the design and what technique I feel like using but mostly I use clear and digi. Creative Blessings, Tracy x

Jean said...

This is just delightful! RIght now Penny Black has many of my favorite stamps. Love their flowers!

Linda Simpson said...

So pretty Holley, love this image. I use a variety of stamps from rubber to digi, it depends on what mood I am in I suppose.
Hugs

Virginia M. said...

Love the angel card and the stitching around the edge too.
I like rubber and clear mounted stamps, not so much wood mounted (due to cost and storage). I've done digi, but prefer stamps.

sammi said...

Gorgeous Angel card, Holley! The stitching is a great touch! Im still loving red rubber stamps, but I do like the good quality clear stamps as well

Jeanie Ellis said...

I have that same image and LOVE it! My favorite? Woe, that's hard for me. It would definitely be a toss up between the clear and digi. Either one is fine. Oh dear....I can't decide!

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

My favorite stamps are clean and rubber. I really don't use Digi images and mounded takes up too much space. But if I really love the image I will purchase mounted stamps.

Laine said...

This is beautiful Holley. I love both digi and rubber stamps.

DJ said...

I'm not fussy with stamps, cling, clear, red rubber, wood mounted. As long as I get clean images I'm happy.

Jennifer Bradley said...

Love this card Holley, the image is beautiful and I love how the card is CAS. I prefer clear unmounted stamps but do use digi stamps as well. Take care Hugs Jennifer xxx

Jan Ltc said...

Great card Holley. I like Cas and Shabby Chic. Love all stamps but especially clear. xx Jan

Cindy van Oorschot said...

What a sweet card Holley. I am like you and used to say rubber, but now more than ever into the digital, I like the that you can change the size of them to suit your needs.

Glennis said...

Probably my favourite would be clear stamps, I am not a big fan of digital

Em Louise Fairley said...

Beautiful card, Holley! I love the CAS style! My favorite stamps are either rubber or digi.
Hugs,

cebelica said...

I like this angel, very pretty. And so is your card.
I like clear and rubber stamps the most. I am not too keen of the wood mounted ones or digis.

stampingwithpeggie.blogspot.com said...

Love the image. Simple layout works so well for her. Great card.

Christine Telega said...

Not fussy. I am into oriental or piggy stamps or stickers. Two years ago I won a Piggy looking over a brick wall. I use it often.

Audrey R in Austin said...

Hi Holley - I haven't gotten into using digi stamps, yet, but I love rubber stamps - clear, polymer, wood mounted, unmounted - I love them all. I especially like the stamps with matching framelits, to cut them out so perfectly! The girl stamps with the matching dies look very intriguing.

Jackie Trinder said...

Hi Holley this is a stunning card that is a gorgeous image you have used. Take care. Hugs Jackie

Karenladd said...

What a sweet card! I love the gray background and beautiful coloring. My favorite stamp type is either rubber or clear mount. I never use digis because I don't have a printer right now.

Candy Meyers said...

Cute card. I rarely use gray so it is good to see something done with it. Made me think about using it.

ionabunny said...

Hi Holley that is a pretty image. I am old fashioned and like red rubber, although I tend to use unmounted or cushion mounted stamps on acrylic blocks. It's so much easier to store without the blocks. Not really into digi's. Hugz

ShersL84bed said...

Adorable card Holley. I love this image, I never would have guessed bugaboo for it. I love their pet images too. Digi is good for me. :)

Andree said...

A lovely CAS card Holley. The angel is so sweet.
I do love digi stamps as they can be resized to suit a card. For physical stamps I like to work with clear acrylic stamps as I can see through them for easy placement xx

bissecat said...

Lovely angel beatiful card i like colors.I love stamps rubber or digi.

Robin said...

Such a sweet card! We all need to remember we are blessed. I love clear mounted stamps. Have a blessed day! Hugs, Robin

SHartl said...

That card is the cutest and your coloring skills are amazing. My favorite type of stamp is clear ones, because I can actually tell where I'm stamping. I don't use digi stamps but you do a beautiful job with them.

KT Fit Kitty said...

Such a sweet image, Holley! I like your CAS style here! As for your question, my preference is clear stamps, especially those with coordinating dies. I missed your post yesterday so I'll go check it out now. Thanks so much, Holley!

barbara macaskill said...

Clear and red rubber are my favorite type of stamps!
I love this cute card! TFS!

Janny's Cards Creations said...

Oh wow, I love this little lady! She is absolutely adorable.
My favourite stamps are clear mounted as I find them easiest to position for masking. x

Marjeta said...

For me, rubber stamp is the best, but in this time I gladly work with digi stamps. I can adjust the size, orientation...

Cathy Clowes said...

Beautiful card Holley, the angel is lovely. I like to use digi stamps most of all and have lots of clear stamps too. Cathy x

Amy Martin said...

Such a cute card Holly. The Angel is so precious. I like rubber and clear stamps best. I tried to jump on the Digi band wagon and fell off. Not having a computer really has put me back the last few years.

Jean Chaney said...

Such a sweet card, Holley. Storage has become a problem for me, so I prefer clear stamps. I love having the ability to restamp them perfectly using a Misti. I also love digis for the ability to resize.

Rhonda Miller said...

What a sweet card. I love the cute image. I have really been liking clear stamps lately.

Kim Salito said...

I love stamps and dies. But I love winning more. Glad you are better.

She is so sweet and magical!!

Sandra van Blaricum said...

cute card Holley, she is indeed magical!!
My favorite stamp, hmmmmm at the moment rubber stamps, but I use most of the time digi's.clear stamps are easy too, but not the quality of rubber :D

StampNK said...

This is such a sweet card with a beautiful image. I am a beginner when it comes to coloring and usually like rubber or clear stamps that don't require too much of it. I haven't tried digital stamps because I love working with ink and paper.

stamping sue said...

I do like red rubber. my style is vintage to quirky just not real cute. I'm not a big fan of stickers but recently have tried out rub-ons...I like rubber stamps and stencils the best.

Lucie H said...

I like clear because they are so easy to use with the Misti. I have a lot of stamps. My favorite new technique is stamping through a stencil.

Mel C said...

Holley I love your card, and love angels stamps! I used all of the different stamps types, Am I addicted, maybe! I like red rubber best I guess.

Sindhu said...

Beautiful card Holley...I am new to stamping and I like clear stamps...

Nikki C said...

What a sweet image.I like both... own more digi seeing they take up no space

Suz H said...

Awesome card Holley, isn't it the truth!! (your saying says it all!!)

Cara Malmrose said...

I love this image and have used her myself! Great card with just her and the sentiment ... Thanks for sharing!

Larisa said...

Nice card!! My fave stamp is clear mounted...

Vickie Kertz said...

I still like rubber but the clear stamps take up less space and work on the positioning boards like the Misti

Kathy said...

Love this card and sentiment. I like stamps that are not wood mounted. Polymer takes a little treatment to stamp clear, but still works. I love digi stamps. They offer so much more flexibility in size. Depending on the artist's policy, they can offer other flexibility as well.

terriavidreader (IN-USA) said...

My FAV is digi, but second is clear polymer.

Jennifer Dillon said...

Love love love this image.
