Capivate Self

Here's a lovely image from Digistamps4Joy called Here's my Heart.  I made this card for the current Monday Greetings Challenge at Outlawz.  Every week they have a new sponsored contest with great prizes and they challenge requires that you use a sentiment on your card.  This week's challenge is called "Have a heart please...."  Please put a heart somewhere on your card.

Question of the day:  who's your favorite stamp maker?  digi stamp maker?

for me, hmmm in rubber stamps, I love Unity, stampotique, whipper snapper, oh and I LOVE Grumplings from Taylored Expressions

in Digi stamps, eeek, too many to list, lol, Sandra Caldwell, Lizzy Love, Bloobel, Ike's Art,  East Wind, loving the new companies that I am sharing this month Enchanted School, Noctturnoc, Scribbles (oh those cute penguins!!), Paper Nest Dolls, can you tell I use a lot of digi stamps lately?

NOTE:  If you didn't leave comment on Feb 1st,  please go back and do so as winners will get picked from there everyday! CLICK HERE.  Also winners have not been picked from the 1st through the 4th yet if you haven't commented on those days.  Check the winner list HERE.

Your coloring always amazes me! Favorite rubber stamp company is hard, I love them all and favorites change depending on my projects. Currently Viva Las Vegas Stamps and, of course, Wild Frog Creations Stamps are on my worktable. I really have never used digi's but I do admire some of them that I look at due to your prompting in our celebrations. I love window shopping the different companies you mention.

What a beautiful card! You have mastered the art of coloring, especially skin tones. I like all stamps, but tend to have quite a bit of Hero Arts and Paper raft Studios. I’ve never used a digi stamp.

I have used a lot of Stampin' Up images but lately I have been looking for more "people" images and have bought a few of the Art Impressions stamps. I can't use digi-stamps. Barbara

Darcy Schroeder said...

For rubber stamps, my fav company is Penny Black. I love the big cling stamps from PB. For digi companies, wow, hard to pick one favorite. Those that come to mind are Digistamps4Joy, Sheepski Designs, Sandra Caldwell and for Digital Paper, I love We are 3! Probably a lot more than I'm not thinking of at the moment!!

Darcy Schroeder said...

I forgot to say how much I love your card, Holley!! Beautiful!

Kym's Crafty Cards said...

Another gorgeous card Holley. Love the image, colouring and especially the sentiment. For rubber stamps it would have to be a company that is sadly no more, Sweet Pea Stamps. My favourite digital stamps are by Ching-Chou Kuik, Lemon Shortbread and Bugaboo. Take care, Kym

Candy Meyers said...

Love this image! I have not done digi stamps yet. My favorite stamp companies are Heartfelt Creations, Our Daily Bread and SU. The old PSX were awesome. Too bad someone didn't take over their line when they quit. Their images are timeless.

Mel C said...

Lovely card Holley! I love Scenic stamps from Northwoods Stamps, Any TX Cowgirl stamps, Power Poppy & Stampendous. Digi's Ching-Chou Kuik, Aurora Wings, Mo Manning, Paper Shelter.

I don't use digital. I have no printer. For rubber I like Stampootique, Lost Coast designs, Paper Artsy, Tim Holtz, Stampstracts, Stampington & Co, Stampers Anonymous, just about anything funky and a bit off beat.

jordanbev5@yahoo.com said...

Gosh, your card is so inspiring since I haven't made my Valentines yet!!
For rubber or clear stamps: Julie Nutting, Paper Smooches (and dies), Have 4 rubber Paper Nest Dolls, Pretty Pink Posh, but basically those that are cute and cuddly. I haven't used digi successfully. Sorry none.

You colored this image just perfectly and I love the sparkly hearts and lace! I have a lot of favorite stamp companies, but some that I am crushing on right now are My Favorite Things, Darkroom Door, Lawn Fawn, Newtons Nook, and anything with a vintage design. I love both cute and artsy stamp designs and usually only use rubber or clear stamps.

Christine Telega said...

The card is perfect as always. I do not do Valentines Day.

Cathy Clowes said...

I love this card Holley, such a great design. I love good sentiment stamps as I don't colour much these days. I tend to look at the stamp rather than the brand. There is a company in the UK called Clearly Besotted who make amazing stamp and die sets which I love. Cathy x

Kajcyika said...

I would have to go with companies that have a lot of cute animals :D So MFT, Lawn fawn, Studio Katia and so on.. :) For digis it's hard to choose since I don't use them much, but I would go with Bugaboo :)
Love the card! ♥

jeanchaneyaz said...

Pretty card, Holley. I love that heart lace!
For digi stamps, I love Bugaboo and Little Miss Muffet. For "real" stamps, I'm fond of Stampendous and Altenew.

Shell B. said...

Stamps....LOTV, Tim Holtz, Stampendous but just finally took a look see at Unity and love em!

Kathy said...

I can't pick favorites! Lately I've used a lot of Fun Stampers Journey stamps. I get the Bloom Box and have been making up my stockpiled old boxes. Digital stamps are even harder--I love them all. One that I didn't see mention is Rick St Dennis, plus all of the above.

Cindy van Oorschot said...

My favorite stamps are from Stupendous or from Stampin up. my favorite digis are My Besties, and I also like ChingChouKuik, Conie Fong and Paper Nest Dolls

Anonymous said...

I like Scribbles too. Virginia M

Lucie H said...

I love Lawn Fawn stamps. I have a lot of Stampin Up stamps. I am having probems with my hands, so now I look for more bold images that I can emboss rather than color.

Fikreta said...

gorgeous card!
my favorite stamp maker is Christy from Tiddly Inks.

Nikki C said...

Stunning Card Holley and Fave stamps that's a toughie I like so many and it's geared to what ever catches my eye (sometimes what's on sale is a easy no brainer too)
hugs Nikki

StampNK said...

I don't really have a favorite digi stamp maker, since I don't use them, but I like stamps by My Favorite Things, hero Arts, Stampendous, Lawn Fawn, and Stampin Up. I don't do a lot of coloring so I tend to like simpler designs.

sammi said...
