Blog Candy!

Well ladies…2,000 hits is upon us it seems and since no one claimed the Blog Candy for 1,000 hits…I think it should be done again with more goodies added! Here is the list of what will be included!

- 2 stamped images of every Bella I own (now up to 26 Bellas!)

- 1 yard of 6 different ribbons

- 3 different $1.00 stamp sets from Mike’s plus 2 acrylic blocks to match

-1 package of Prima Sprites, Green

So how do you win these this time around? Simple! Leave a comment to this post with answers to at least one of the following questions:

What do you do with the little pink baggies that the Bellas come in?

What is your favorite SU! In Color?

What sort of set would you like to see in the new SU! Catty?

Thanks for looking ladies! Tonight or tomorrow I will post a picture of what all these goodies look like! I will keep this Blog Candy open until June 20th, my sister’s graduation!

Great sounding candy. Congratulations on the hits!!

My answers:
*I keep my bellas in their baggies and have also put a mask of each Bella in her bag
*My favourite new In Color, with just looking at them (they arrived yesterday) is Purely Pomegranate
*I want to see more variety in embellishments in the new catalogue

Cindy Keery said...

What do you do with the little pink baggies that the Bellas come in?

*Throw them away *gasp*! I mount my bellas on wood blocks with foam, so I don't need the baggie.

What is your favorite SU! In Color?

I haven't seen the new In Colors in person yet to know which one is my favorite.

What sort of set would you like to see in the new SU! Catty?

Stamps with punches that go with them. So you can stamp the image and then punch it out perfectly. (A petal punch would be nice).

Manda Doorley said...

1- I keep my bellas in their baggie w/ picture.... and they have their own decorated tin I keep them in!!!!!
2- Hmmm....waiting for my new In Colors to arrive, so for now Cool Caribbean!
3- I would love to see a good Boy sporting set. This past catty a lot of girl sets, but I have boys... and we are huge sports fans... not a big fan of the only sport set in there

CAKVD said...

Hello! I don't own any Bellas, so I can't answer the first question. But I do like Groovy Guava color. And I really hope that the new catty has some vacation or tropical stamps in it! Thanks!

Erika said...

Congrats on the hits!!!

My answers:
My bellas stay in their pink little baggie home and get filed in a recipe box.
I haven't looked at the new In Colours so have no opinion.
In the new catty I would like to see more versatile non-floral sets.

doverdi said...

Congrats on your 2,000 hits. Awesome blog candy!

What do you do with the little pink baggies that the Bellas come in?

'Am I bad??? I leave my bella's in the baggies that they come in and then they all go into a clear plastic container labelled Stamping Bella'

What is your favorite SU! In Color?
Just from seeing pics on blogs, I would say Purely Pomegranate.

What sort of set would you like to see in the new SU! Catty?
I'd like to see more masculine type stamps and more floral stamps that can be cut out.

jodene said...

Since I don't have any bella's, I would love to win some. My new favorite color is the Pomegranate. I would like to see more embellishments. Am very excited about the chipboard flowers.

Sheri said...

I sadly don't own any bellas, but am loving all the examples I'm seeing lately!

My favorite new In Color color is Purely Palmegranite, but I just KNOW I'll use River Rock a tonne!

I can't wait to see what they're replacing "French Script" with; it's a staple in my collection, and I'm SO sad to see it go.

scrappintrish said...

I have no Bella's yet. :( Sadly. I LOVE them though and am hoping to get some soon. My friend keeps hers in the baggie and stamps the Image of the Bella on the pink paper and that way she can tell which Bella Image is in the baggie. I thought that was a clever thing to do.
*My favorite in color would have to be Purely Pomegranate
Also, I have BLOG CANDY up for grabs over at my Blog until June 15th. :)

Pat S. said...

Hi Jackie!
Congratulations on 2000!!!
And thank you for the chance to win your great candy :)

I don't have any Bellas :( so I don't know about the pink baggies.

My favorite new SU In Color is Groovy Guava.

And I second the motion for stamps with coordinating punches.

Pat S. said...

I just went back to look for the date you will be drawing.

Do you realize that June 20 is another monumental day for SU addicts...
it's the day they tell us which accessories will be retired!

Amie said...

I would like to see lots of arrows from stampin' up!

The Stampin' Soldier said...

Well, I would definitely love a new patriotic stamp set of some sort. I hope they bring a new one out every year. I can't stop making those cards for my battle buddies out there!

Heather said...

What do you do with the little pink baggies that the Bellas come in? For right now, I keep my Bellas in them since I do not have many (Only 3)

What is your favorite SU! In Color?
Well, my fav in-color of all times is Coll Caribbean, but since SU did not see fit to keep it around (yes, I am bitter!) I guess I like Wild Wasabi (not sure if I spelled it right) -- if for nothing else it sounds neat!

What sort of set would you like to see in the new SU! Catty? I am hoping for sets similar to the Bellas or My Favorite Things sets. I love that doodlist drawing and I am getting back into the coloring thing.

Thanks for the opportunity to win such wonderful candy and thank you to for the inspiration you provide inyour blog.

scfranson said...

Congratulations! My favorite color is the Wasabi and I sure would like to see some more floral images in the catalog.

lois lane said...

Great candy!!! Let's see, I would like to see some "hand stamped by" stamps to go with different stamps.

Peggy S said...

Congrats on your hit !!
I don't own any Bellas so ... :)
My favorite new color is Groovy Guava--can't wait to see it in real life! I hope to see lots of modern looking flowers sets!!

Andrea Hays said...

Congrats.

1. I don't have any bellas. :( I wish I did. Maybe someday, or maybe I can get some images from someone on day if I am not chosen.
2. I love Purely Pomegranate, but Wild Wasabi is a close 2nd.
3. I really like the sets that can be used for multiple events. So ones for many occasions. I like the versatility of them and feel I am getting more for my money.

JoAnn said...

I've never ordered any Bellas (gasp!), so I didn't even know they came in little pink baggies! My favorite In Color is the Purely Pomegranate -- I love its richness. I would like to see a bunch of new floral sets to replace all the ones I'm still mourning over!

Pattyjo said...

1. I don't own an bella yet.
2. My all time favorite is Buckaroo Blue, but I know that was just with the older catty.
3. I would love to see vintage stamps.

Tanis said...

:(
I don't have Bellas yet. So I have no pink baggies to deal with (ok, you can cry with me now).
So I'd really LOVE all those images!
Second question...
Love Wasabi Green. But it might just be because I love Wasabi.
In the new catalogue, I want more people. Like Bellas. Most of the Stampin Up people are rather unattractive. Except for the kids.
Thanks for the giveaway!

mommy_jem said...

I still keep my bellas in the little baggies they come in.

My fave new in color is Purely Pomegranate.

I also wouldn't mind seeing more patriotic sets.

Kristina said...

Congrats on your hits!

I don't own any bellas :( not yet anyways
My current favorite is Cool Caribbean and the Soft Sky is looking pretty neat for the next set of In Colors

I would like to see a less Cutesy cat set, more versatile sets that have masculine and feminine elements and more embellishments!

SusanH said...

Bummer, no bellas here, so no baggies. I love Purely Pomegranate. And I'm not picky about what SU adds - just so long as it's more stuff!!!

Nancy Grant said...

Hello! Don't hate me but I would love to have the option to have unmounted stamps with SU!
Smiles,
NG.

Jan Scholl said...

I dont have any Bella-I want to get some but must find a credit card that doesnt charge a fee for converting the Canadian money. Any ideas?

foodpartyfun said...

1. No Bella here yet...would be so great to win some stamped images of them.

2. Absolutely Purely Pomegranate.

3. More embellishments.

Thanks for sharing!

What is my fav SU! In color? Well out of the NEW, new In Colors...I would have to say the Soft Sky color!

What sort of set would I like to see in the New SU! catty?..I would like to see more school related stamps! We haven't had ANY for quite a while now!

wsdanielson said...

I only have 4 Bella's at this point, they are stored in the baggies, however, I leave a corner open so they can breathe! LOL

My favorite in color would have to be Cool Carribean (haven't seen the new ones yet)

I would like to see an exercise set by SU. Doodles are also very good. Some serious animals like giraffe, lion, elephant etc.

Denise said...

Donna B. said...

awesome candy! congrats on the hits! I'd love to see better dog & cat sets in the new catalog (similar to Whipper Snapper or something)

Debbie said...

I store my Bellas in their plastic bags with the pink pictures. It makes them easy to find. I would like to see more sets similiar to Bellas or My Favorite Things also.

Shannon Roberts said...

Hey there!! Congrats Sistah!!

Well, I have to say after waiting forever.........My first order or Bellas arrived & they are in their clear little baggies. Till I find something else to mount them too. What I usually do with baggies that size is but images to send to others, eyelets, etc.

The In colors (What a great idea!)
Haven't got the NEW ones so....my color is Buckaroo Blue!! <3 <3 <3

As for a set, I have 5 boys so something versatile to use for them especially since they are getting older (Ahoy Matey ain't cuttin it!) LOL!

Linda SS said...

Oh-Oh...I have to confess that I don't own a Bella stamp:( I think she's adorable too. I did win some darling Bella images as blog candy & am enjoying playing with those.
Wild Wasibi is my new fav & I'm hoping for some cute smaller sized stamps similar to the Very Punny set. Congrats on all the hits & also on your recent graduation.

Anonymous said...

My answers:
1. My Bellas stay in there little baggies in a plastic box.
2. I haven't seen the new In Colors in person so I will go with my current fav Cool Caribbean.
3. I would like to see sets that are a bit more masculine.

Sandye/sgc said...

Love checking your blog to see your bella cards! I keep my bellas in their little baggies and keep them all in a big baggie. My favorite In Color (right now) is Cool Caribbean, but I think I am going to love the new green one (I love green!) I would love to see more sets that I can use with my teenage granddaughter, who lives with me.

Stampin-MAMI said...

Ok cool questions, congrats on the hits....
1. i like the little baggies, i think its different, i keep them in there baggie and placed them in there New Home when they arrive. (Sample of it on my blog)

2. Favorite color would be just like nancy... the purely pomergranate.

3. I want to see all kinds of stuff.. embellishments, ideas, sparkly anything,...girly figures.... oh is that like the bellas, lol.. yea well cant blame me....

Ami Cook said...

I guess I just never thought about removing the bellas from the bags, they are perfect for storing them and transporting them. I am going to a stampin up punch class on the 21st and I'm so excited. We ordered the punches already in time to have them for the class so we don't have to share. I have not seen the new catalog yet. Gasp!

tammy Miller said...

How cool. I keep all my little bags they are great for swaping images, for sending little treats and everything! I use one SU box for my bellas and leave the um.

MY fav color is Groovy Guava from pics I have seen.

I would like to see more man stamps or at least something to use for men. Ready for new and unique punches.

Wife2TJ said...

What do you do with the little pink baggies that the Bellas come in? I don't own any bella's yet (I love them, just don't own any)

What is your favorite SU! In Color? I'm thinking its going to be groovey Guava.

What sort of set would you like to see in the new SU! Catty?

I would love to see a stitches set like CTMH's simple stitches. I love that set but don't use acrylic stamps. I would also like to see some new dog/cat stamps as well. But not ones so cartoonish.

Lilian said...

congratulations on 2k!

1. unfortunately, i haven't been able to purchase ANY bellas yet, but i have SOOOO been wanting some! so if i win, i would be SO SO happy.

2. my favorite SU in color is cool carribean

3. i would like to see some new cute animal stamps from stampin up.

Janet Allen said...

I love your Bella graduation cards. I don't have any Bella's so can't answer #1. I am thrilled about the Pomegranite color, it's the perfect red. I hope that SU comes out with a cute bird set, something to replace their discontinued Best of Cluck.

Heather Leech said...

Hi there!
Congrats on the hits!! As for your questions,
I think my favorite new color is either Pomegranate or Guava (although I really do like all of them). I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of florals are in the new catty (since almost every one I owned is retiring!!)
Thanks for a chance at the great blog candy!!
Heather L.

Allison said...

1) I pitch the baggie...it would just get in the way.

2) River rock (for now).

3) A cute little girl set.

TFS!

Allison said...

I keep my Bellas in their baggies but they are stored in a cute acrylic "Caboodles" box. It is clear with fun different colored circles all over it.

My new fave In-color is the Wasabi....something along those lines! I can't remember the name! The green one!!! :)

I also want to see more embellishments...really I'd love to see the Cowboy Kid come back! I just loved that set and was shocked it didn't make it into last year's catty! I didn't have a boy when it was out but now I do and soooo wish I had it!

Penny said...

Congrats on the hits and Wow, that's some candy!!

I've been keeping my bellas (the few that I have) in their little plastic apartments while working on a more upscale arrangement.

I love cool caribbean but will have to settle and learn to love soft sky.

I would love to see a set to go with the mega and giga scalloped punches. That would be awesome.

Thanks for the opportunity to win that tasty candy.

Angel said...

Great questions! First one...I don't own a Bella. Shocking I know! Maybe someday. I love the Purely Pomegranate color and am hoping for a set that knocks my socks off. :-)

Anonymous said...

Right now I only have about 12 different Bellas that I received as a swap gift and love everyone. (I did break down and split them with my wonderful sister). My fav in color is Wild Wasabi(green is my fav), and I would like to see more sets similar to the "Papertrey" acrylic sets(especially the word sets). Great blog! dorothy Freber

Pat S. said...

Congradulations on all those hits!

And...thank you so much for a chance to win spectacular blog candy!!!

What do you do with the little pink baggies that the Bellas come in? I don't own a single Bella. I have not found them here locally.

What is your favorite SU! In Color?
Groovy Guava

What sort of set would you like to see in the new SU! Catty?
I would like to see SU develop some sets that are similar to the Bellas...that would be so fun!

Anonymous said...

*I keep my 1 bella in the bag she came in.
*my fave new in color is purely pomegrante or maybe soft sky.
*I would like to see more embellies in the catty. Or maybe more ribbon- can you have too much? I think not!

Jen AKA pretty princess

melissa roth said...

One of these days I'll have to buy some Bella's I guess. Looks like I'm missing out! I LOVE Purely Pomegranate. Hope that the new SU catalog starts offering clear stamps.

cherella said...

If I had a bella, lol, I would take it out of its pink pakage and use it. Perhaps re-use the bag.
My favorite SU in color, Wild Wasabi, love it and the name.
I would like to see more stamps that benefit more causes, ie. cancer, luekemia, parkinsons, children and more deserving charitites.
Loce your site, thanks for sharing.

sunnie said...

I have no Bellas so no pink bags yet

My fave SU In Color is currently Cool Caribbean but of the ones going to be in the catalog is Purely Pomegranite.

More Designer Papers & Scrapping Kits

Sally said...

I just received my first Bellas...they are still safe and sound in their pink baggie home.

I think my new favorite "in" color is going to be Purely Pomeganate...but the jury is still out on that.

I would like a volleyball set!! My DD play competitive volleyball and I'd like to be able to make cards for the players and coaches...even emailed SU! about this!!

Stampinmomof2cuties said...

What do you do with the little pink baggies that the Bellas come in? I throw them in my bag drawer

What is your favorite SU! In Color? Cool Carribean

What sort of set would you like to see in the new SU! Catty? Some better floral sets, I'm not thrilled with what they have now.

jannica said...

I don't have any bellas yet.
My favorite new In Color is bayou blue.
I would like to see more designer papers, embellishments and greeting stamps in the new catalogue.

L8ybug2 said...

Congratulations on the hits! I keep my Bella (that's right I only have 1) in the baggie. My favorite in color is Cool Carribean. I would really like to see some nice Get Well sets.

Joan said...

Hi,
My favorite color is Cool Carribean. In the new SU catalog, I would love to see more stamps suitable for young boys and men . I have many, many, many stamps, but when I have to make a masculine bday card, I am always stumped unless I do a generic bday cake card in bright colors.
I love this web site and the blogs. I am very new to this and this is m6y first comment.
Bye for now!
Joan, Lacey Twp NJ

Pat S. said...

Congradulations on all those hits!

And...thank you so much for a chance to win spectacular blog candy!!! I can't imagine someone not claiming their prize!

I can't purchase Bellas locally, and I haven't ordered any, so I don't even know what the little pink baggie is :)

Pat S. said...

Oh my gosh! I would love to win your stamped Bellas!

What I would like to see in the new catty...Bellas (I wish)

Seriously, I know they are adding rhinestone brads. I would like to see some pearl brads.

Pat S. said...

Oh my gosh! I would love to win your stamped Bellas!

What I would like to see in the new catty is clear stamp sets. I really like being able to see what I'm doing :)

Denise... said...

I am keeping my fingers crossed on this blog candy...I have been stalking the bellas!!!
I would like to see even more flowers come out with SU...all kinds of styles. I can't get enough flowers!
Denise

Pat S. said...

You're way over 2000 hits now...great blog!

The kind of stamp set I would like to see in the new catty is something masculine that could be used for any occasion.

Pat S. said...

Hi Jackie!
Can you believe that list of retiring accessories that came out today?!

Between that, and the retiring stamp sets, we must be in for a BRAND NEW CATTY, in more ways than one!

lindsalita said...

Found you a bit late- love the blog candy! Just thought I would tell you a set that I am waiting to see in the new catty- a great masculine set- perhaps military or non-cutsey bbq!!! T
