Cardmaking Contest

Card Making Contest and Celebration!!

In addition to handing out goodies everyday, it's Time to have a contest using some great stamps from my dearest friend, Sandra Caldwell! This is the only contest of the month.  (Note, there's also blog candy for today just for leaving a comment, that's separate from the contest)

We are having a wonderful contest with LOTS of prizes. There are there stamps on sale, you can get them and create a card.  The winners will be chosen in many different categories including, Sandra Caldwell's Favorite, Holley's favorite in each of the three stamps, Top three, John's Favorite, and MORE!! some prizes are DIGI stamps from Sandra Caldwell's store, many and most prizes are items that will get mailed to you.  So play along.  You can enter one card for each of the three images for a total of THREE cards per person

The contest will run until the 25th and the winners will be announced on the 26th.  There are three wonderful stamps that you can get in Sandra Caldwell's Etsy store, Babycakes DND they are:


During the month I will show my cards with each image as reminders. You can click the name under each image to go to the store and get the stamp.  All of the stamps have been put on sale from Sandra!  WOO HOO!  I'd love for you to join.  You can make any handmade item with the stamp. I can't wait to see what you make.  

If you don't have a blog or have ANY trouble uploading your cards or need a place to post your cards, you can simply email me--htondre@aol.com and I will be happy to make sure your cards are entered into all the contests!





Question of the day, do you use digi stamps?  I can send both digi stamp prizes as well as mailed prizes to the same winner.    Note: a winner will be drawn from the Question of the day answers, separate from the contest prizes

Did you sign up on the previous days?  Be sure to leave a comment on the Feb 1st, winners are chosen from that day each day of the month.  No winners have been chosen from Feb 2nd-3rd yet, so you can also go comment there if you haven't yet.

I do like Digi stamps but find myself not using them as much as I have in the past. The digis are cute but really not my style this round. Your card is lovely though.

I love the hippo card. I have never used digi's. I always see so many cute digi images. I love holding the rubber stamp and stamping it!

Karenladd said...

I don't have a printer right now so I can't use digi stamps myself, but I love how you use them in your cards . I like the feel of using a physical stamp, and like the option of just stamping in a bold color without having to color it in if I'm short on time.

What a cute card. I do use digis.

Lucie Horowitz said...

Yes I use digital stamps. I have issues with tremors in my hands, so I have to be particular with the designs I chose. I love the hippos line dancing like the Rockettes.

Jackiep said...

Audrey R said...

Shabneez said...

Great card Holley! I do use digis but prefer normal stamps if I had the option. I think it depends if the stamp suits my style. Shabneez x

Another adorable card from you Holley! I don't use digi stamps because I am terrible when it comes to coloring, eek!

DJ said...

Love these images. Hope to enter the contest. Yes! I do use digi stamps. They are easy to resize and they take up no space for storage. Lol. I have lots of digits in my library. Hugs

Sandra said...

I use digi's, but i tend more to rubber lately.

Another simply awesome card Holley!

Gail Hutchinson said...

Love Sandra’s stamps, I will try and enter

Gaye Valle said...

I am not a digi stamper. I like to make cards and scrapbooks with paper, inks, and stamps. I like to get messy! I also don't have a printer.

Christine Telega said...

Cute card==I use digi cards as well as rubber stamps.

Virginia Montagna said...

Love Sandra Caldwell work. The Chorus line hippos are adorable. I do use digital images as well as actual stamps. Both are fun.

I love Sandra Caldwell's stamps. They always make me smile.

I do not use digistamps at all. I like playing with ink too much! :)

Twylia Bell said...

I have never used digi stamps before. I would have to learn more about it and see if my printer would work to print them out.

vinita jain said...

Love the sweet chorus hippos in your fab style! Unfortunately, I never used Digi stamps, I love to play with clear or rubber stamps!

Gwyneth said...

Your card is great, just brings a smile to anybody's face. I do use digi-stamps, probably more than rubber or clear stamps, although I do have a collection of them as well.

Denise Pustelniak said...

Holley, such a good celebration! This was FUN!

Denise Bryant said...

I'm pretty new to using digis, but I love what I've seen people do with them! Great that you can resize them as you want! I need to get more practice using them!

Linda Dampier said...

Digi stamps, no I'm not very fond of them. I like to see, feel and hold the real thing! BTW. Lot that trip on your card

Blue Kube said...

I used to use digis when I was spoiled with access to a laser printer but now with my inkjet, I've not done any. Super cute stamps, tho, especially the hippos.

StampNK said...

I do not use digital stamps, even though I've seen some beautiful projects with them. My coloring skills are not very good so I try to stick to regular stamping and die cutting.

Ricka Parkhurst said...

I do not use digis except for coloring classes as Kit and Clowder. Her classes are strickly online so images have to be sent digi.

Pat said...

I only use digi stamps now. Even my sentiments are made on the computer and printed out. I love Sandra's images, so I'm off to her shop now! Whee!

Claudia Martins said...

I love working with digis stamps. For me, it gives me more options, since if it depended only on the rubber seals it could not have so much diversity

Kathy said...

I love the flexibility of digital stamps. I use them more often than rubber/poly stamps.
I love your card. Such a cute image, too.

ike said...

Oh, I just LUV those Hippos. :-) xx

ionabunny said...

I don't use digi's. Cute images though. Love real stamps and dies. Hugz
