Mint Motif Giveaway!

Hello, there!  Happy Friday…

We are getting ready to head to a lake for a week.  Will be meeting my in-laws there, along with my sister-in-law and her family.  They live in Africa, so we don't get to see them often.  Can't wait to see them in person instead of just in my prayers! We are all going, but Roxie has to stay here.  She will love life, as Grandpa will be staying at the house here with her.  Happy pup.

I will post from there, but I wanted to get a giveaway up before leaving. 🙂

So… a few weeks ago, I was shopping at iheartpapers and noticed a new line of stamps that I liked called Mint Motif.  I bought a set and loved them, especially since they are made in the US and therefore stamp great.

I then found out that they were designed by one of my favorite card artists,  Kimberly Crawford. And, being the kind person she is, she offered to send me sets to giveaway here.  What a doll.

First, I thought I would share a few cards I made with these stamps.  For the background on this one, I mounted all the square stamps on a big block and stamped them together.  Then stamped on red and punched out some hearts…

The orientation of these greetings is fabulous.

This one has a bit of Hero Arts love in the background.  The stars are stamped with the dotted square and then finished with Glossy Accent dots.

So… I have two sets to giveaway – one each to two lucky winners.  Just leave a comment here by Monday night at 11:59pmEST telling me your current favorite stamp line and I will pick winners.  Look at these lovely sets…



Have a great weekend and good luck!

  1. Hero Arts of course!!! LOL!!! I also love Magnolia, and Lizzie Anne Designs. I wait with bated breath for your videos – I wish that I could watch one daily!!! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I love the idea of putting all the stamps together to make the background, what a great idea! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Have a great vacation!

  3. I think all stamps are my favs, however, I am currently loving the stampendous line. I think they are great for kids and summer really makes you think about all the kids being out of school and having a great summer vacation.

  4. I don’t really have a favorite stamp line. I guess either stampin’ up or hero arts. I love those cards you made!

  5. What a great set of stamps and cards!! I have such a hard time finding a Sympathy stamp, it’s really nice that it is all in with others!!!

  6. Love the new stamps you are showing! Great cards with the new set!! My favorite stamps are Hero Arts! They seem to be the ones I go to the most! Have a great vacation and thanks for the chance to win!!!!

  7. Right now I am ‘re-discovering’ my older Hero Arts stamps…they were the first rubber stamps that I bought. I am in a travel, vintage mode, so I have been using the set, Style De Luxe, quite abit.

  8. I love clear stamps, wood mounts have not been kind to me. So my favourite is CTMH – I just love the way they package their stamps. My “go-to” set of the moment is called Boutique Borders. A close second are PTI and Hero Arts. I’m especially interested in the large background cling stamps by HA, particularly the polka dots.

  9. My favorite stamps are from Paper Parachute. It’s a small Oregon company and the owner designs beautiful stamps. I have been looking at these stamps on Kimberley Crawford’s blog and would love to win some.

  10. I have really enjoyed Papertrey Ink stamps. I love that they show many ideas that you can create with their stamps. But I also like the Hero Art stamps too.

  11. My current favorite stampline is Magnolia even though I don’t own any of them. I still love those darlings. Have fun with your relatives.

  12. Great Cards – and stamps! My favorite stamps are Magnolialicious and ODBD. There are many that run a close second, but those two take the tops I think lol. Thanks for the opportunity to win! Hope your family get together was wonderful!

  13. You are such an enabler that HA is one of my favorites. 🙂 Another one is A*muse. Enjoy the vacation and time with relatives!

  14. Great Cards and Stamps! I would definately say my favorite stamps are Magnolialicious and ODBD, there are many that come in as close seconds, but I think those two win out lol. Hope you had a wonderful time at the lake with your family and thanks for the opportunity to win 😉

  15. My favorites right now are Joanne Sharpe’s stamps that Art Gone Wild is producing. Love her lettering style and whimsical drawings! This is my first time entering a giveaway…wish me luck!!!

  16. What great stamps. Thanks for the opportunity to win. I don’t currently have a favorite line, although after seeing many of the projects on the Hero Arts blog, I’ve accumulated quite a stash. Also like Tim Holtz, and I think I’m going to love these!

  17. Wow it’s hard to pick one favorite as there is so much talent out there. One of my top choices would defnitely have to be PTI. Nicole and her group are just so creative and I like that their new sets can partner easily with previously released sets. That said, I love both sets you are giving away because they are very versatile. That’s what I look for in great design 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win.

  18. Narrowing down to one line is HARD!!! I think I would have to go with the Tim Holtz stamps. Thanks for one GREAT giveaway….have a great time at the lake.

  19. LOVE the new cards. I have been without my computer for about a week and have really gone through Jennifer McGuire withdrawals.
    Hope you have a wonderful time with your family.

  20. Oh, my gosh, I have to say that I love Hero Arts stamps, Stampin Up and Amuse, but the Mint Motif stamps…I can certainly see lots of uses for those Mint Motif squares!

  21. I love stamps and I agree that those made in the USA are of a superior quality. One of my fave brands is Waltzingmouse Stamps. Claire Brennan has a fantastic eye for detail and her vintage inspired stamps are a joy to use. I am always
    inspired when I see her designs!
    Enjoy your vacay!

  22. My current favourite stamp line is Papertrey Ink. I love that they have dies to match many of their stamp sets. Even if they didn’t have dies, I just love the quality of each and every stamp set I have purchased!

  23. I love how you used the mini square stamps to create the background on the first card.

    My current fave line is Hero Arts, especially the butterfly and sentiment sets.

  24. just wanted to let you know the cards you made with those great stamps are so lovely–the heart with kraft makes me happy 🙂 Enjoy your trip!

  25. Those cards are really cute. I like the various textures. My favorite line
    is probably Penny Black.
