Blog Candy!!

In celebration of my 5000th hit (how did that happen?) I am giving away some yummy blog candy. Included is a 6x6 pad of BasicGrey LilyKate, Chipboard coasters (20), Jumbo paperclips, and a yard of each of the May Arts ribbon you see here.

My questions to you are, "Do you prefer floral cards, or cute ones ?" And, "Do you like cards, or 3-D type projects?" I will draw a name on Friday, from all comments to this post. Good luck, and thanks for your interest!

Woo hoo, I get to be first to comment. In answer to your questions. I love cute cards, but don't have a knack for them. I just can't seem to color them right, but I am hoping my recent purchase of prismacolor markers will change some of that. I love to do cards, so quick and easy most of the time and they are a big hit amongst my friends, but when giving a gift I almost always do a 3-D project to include with the cards.

Allison said...

Hmm...I love floral cards versus cute ones. Plus, I am definitely more into cards that altered objects right now but I think that mostly has to do with a lack of time and expertise!

Melanie aka Batgirl said...

great site! I love cute cards the best! and I love 3-D cards! lol. I love cards that are interactive :)

Alli said...

I prefer floral to cute, although there is always a place for cute and I definitely prefer cards to altered items. Love your blog BTW!

Heather Leech said...

Although I do love florals, I still have a place in my heart for cute cards - like the Inky Antics and Whippersnapper dogs and cats.

Cheryl K said...

Wow! I love cute cards with flowers! Does that count? I also prefer doing 3-D projects. So perfect for gifts!

Thanks.

lois lane said...

I would probably say I prefer floral cards although, I like cute cards too. I definetly like seeing cards more because that is what I do, but I also like to see the 3-D projects.

doverdi said...

I think given a choice between floral cards or cute cards, I'd have to chose floral. Although mine tend to be neither cute nor floral. Lately I've been doing more 3D projects than cards. I love making mini books and have just completed 5 mini coaster books.

Wendy said...

Great blog candy!! I love both floral and cute but if I had to choose, I'd probably go with floral, especially sparkly or watercolored ones! I prefer cards to 3D projects only because I am better at making cards. I love admiring 3D projects though!

Alex said...

Oh what a question, um think I have to say that I probably prefer cute but tend to do floral!!! he he

I definitely prefer cards to 3d but like Allison think this is due to the lack of time and experience.

chelemom said...

WOW! Love your blog! OK now to business....floral vs cute....I would have to say floral! I think the Basic Grey paper has influenced me that way! HOwever, cute cards are great too! I'm a little wishy washy on the subject I guess!!

Cheryl said...

I like floral cards the best and I find myself gravitating to 3D projects like post it holders, baskets, notebooks, pens, boxes, anything like that that I can give away. Thanks for asking and for the blog candy.

Hello. Great blog! I prefer floral to cute cards, although I am beginning to experiment with some cute cards, especially by using the Very Punny set from SU. Right now I'm doing more cards as time sometimes is a factor for me as well.

kansmom said...

Hi! I love both kinds of cards and love making 3D objects also. I just started in January and still want to do it all! lol
I have been trying to find LilyKate in 6 X 6 and lookie you found it! can't wait to see who wins!!!

Lynn said...

I prefer cute cards. I own mostly floral stamps, though, and need to get some "cute" ones. I also like cards more than 3-D projects.

CAKVD said...

Hello! I like floral cards the best. I also like 3-D objects, though I'm just getting in to it, so I haven't done too many altered things. I think they are beautiful, but sometimes I wonder what I would do with the item other than display it. Thanks for the chance at the candy!

I'd have to say I love cute cards but do like the floral ones also. Like to see the 3-D cards....wish I had more time to make them. I usually make the quick and easy cards!! TFS :o)

Carole M. said...

Hi Rose Ann; being a lover of all things 'botanical' I love floral cards. 3-D projects are fine but cards are still a favourite to create and receive too.

Ally Stamps said...

I like floral cards although latley, my flower styamps have been collecting dust! I have just been in a flower slump. I am really into cards right now or photo wallets!

Julie said...

Oooh great candy!!! I'm not a huge floral person, but not a big cutesy one either - maybe somewhere in the middle?? I do way more cards, although I like 3-d projects too!

Suzy said...

O0o let's hope 21 is lucky for me as I'm a Blackjack girl!

I love florals they are feminine, girly and so hot right now in the vintage style with swirls and lush embellies. I am a card girl, give me cards please and I will be happy! I do love 3d cards though and lots of dimension - is that cheating?

KIMBERLY said...

I LIKE THEM BOTH BUT PROBABLY CUTE ONES ALITTLE MORE AND I PREFER CARDS. CONGRATS ON THE HITS. THANKS FOR A CHANCE AT SOME CANDY.

Amber H said...

I like them both! If you look at my gallery on SCS (bambi64) you'll see a combination of both. Just depends on my mood for the day. I do prefer cards to 3-d projects.

gremhog said...

i love cute cards always...and honestly...only 3d or pop ups or some sort of animation that makes everyone surprised.

Jackie said...

I prefer floral cards over cute and 3D projects at the moment. Boxes, purses, notepad covers, baskets....fun stuff!

stampingbeth said...

I love flower cards and cute cards. I prefer cards to 3d items.

Susan said...

Actually, I love it all! If I must choose, I love florals and cards over cute and 3-D!

Debi said...

I really like floral but my style is more whimsical so I really like the "hand-drawn" look. I prefer cards but look forward to the challenge of a 3-D item from time to time. Thanks for sharing such a great blog.... Happy Stampin!

Patty said...

I like cards all kinds of cards. Mostly chic ~ bella type and floral type.

I love cards, but also enjoy projects. So, I'm split no that.

Melissa said...

Great candy! Yum Yum. I prefer cute cards. Like I love the bellas, very punny, etc. And most of the floral stamps I have are bold not "realistic" looking.
~Melissa

Kathy McD said...

Oh gosh...floral definitely! ...and I love cards!!! Any kind of card...one layer, multi layer, 3-d...you name it! Shabby Chic or Vintage are my favs! Thanks for the blog candy offer too!

Jan Harrington said...

I like floral cards much more than "cutesy", and am about equal between cards and projects. I like doing the projects more, but have much more need to make cards. Love your blog, and loooooove Basic Grey and May Arts⁄

Erica said...

I love floral cards, but have a hard time amking them. I am definately into altered projects right now, just because I love giving them as gifts:) TFS beautiful blog candy!!

Linda Yamakido said...

Floral cards,, so I think that answers both questions,, I have bought more cute stamps in the last year than ever but I can't seem to use them often or effectively. Thanks for the awesome offer,, I have been "NEEDING" that basic grey paper ;)

Kathi B said...

I just stumbled upon your site today and want to say congrats on 5,000 hits. I personally like seeing more floral type cards because that is mostly what I do.

Cindy Keery said...

mmmm candy. :-) I prefer floral over cute most of the time... but I think flowers go with pretty well everything LOL. Take Bellas for example, they are cute but they just scream for prima flowers or pretty patterned paper that's flowery. I would personally rather make cards than 3D items, but I love the look of 3D items when other people make them.

Cindy

jmniffer said...

I do prefer florals but like to see the occasional cute one too. I like 3-D projects that can hold treats to hand out to friends.

jodene said...

I like floral cards I find them more versitille. I,m in love with most 3-D items yet I would say I make more cards them anything.Thanks for the chance to win!

Karen said...

Congrats on the 5000 mark!! I like all cards, however, do seem to gravitate to floral cards. I also prefer cards - the 3D items are great too, but I usually don't have the patience to complete one. :)

April Hall said...

Congrats!! I prefer floral cards and love making them! I probably should broaden onto something other than flowers, but I love them too much!

olse0231 said...

Congrats on 5,000 hits - well deserved! :) I prefer floral cards, although I do enjoy cute cards as well. As for cards vs. 3-D projects, cards win every time.

Megan

Tammy said...

my mood, and the situation, dictates which i like better at the time....sometimes it's floral and others it's cutsey :) as for the other, while i love to make cards, i've moved into more the home dec area and doing way more scrapbooking....but really, any time i can cut, tear, glue, stamp and embellish paper in any way, i'm one happy camper!

congrats on the blog, i quite enjoy it :D

Jackie said...

Such fun questions! I really like floral cards most of the time they are always cute! I also like both 3D projects and cards, a good mix of them both work out nicely. Love your log by the way!

tyrymom29 said...

I love All but i prefer making cute ones Versus flower ones .!!!! But i love receiving ANY CARDS!!!!

Bettina said...

I love to make floral cards, but everyone loves receiving cute cards. I also love anything you can stamp - cards or altered items. Just the opportunity to get creative!

Jeanna said...

I think I'm a cute card kinda gal. I always want to see ideas for more 3d items....they seem to be the hardest for me to come up with.

Lilian said...

i LOVE floral cards... but they are harder to make, since it's so tricky coloring them in... so i tend to make more "cute" cards.

i like cards better than 3D items cuz they fit in an envelope, so it's easier to mail. ;)

Toni said...

I love floral cards! I dont do cute, but enjoy seeing them. I also don't do altered items, but love seeing them. You never know when something you see is going to be the perfect project for you!

dd2njoy said...

Great candy,thanks for the chance to win! I love any cards,but I would have to say CUTE CARDS are my favorite.Just got into making cards so i'm not near as good as all of you ladies,but one day I will be!!he he Thanks a bunch!!

ikkinlala said...

I generally prefer floral cards to cute ones (although I've really liked some cute ones, and some of my favourites have been neither). I like cards better than 3-D projects.

Peggy S said...

Those are hard questions because I love variety and I love seeing them all! BUT if I had to choose - I would love to see 3D projects and floral cards. I think 3D projects are so great for gift giving and have such a personal touch. Floral cards are so versatile!

Nancy said...

It's hard to say which I like better....I guess it depends on who I am making the card for. I tend to make more florals than cute cards. On your second question, I like card projects better than 3-D ones because I live in place where I can't get all supplies needed to make some of the 3-D projects.
Smiles,
Nancy Grant

StampingontheLakefront said...

just fund your blog thanks to Allison!! I like cute cards period LOL

Joyce T said...

I would have to say I lean toward flower cards. I don't seem to be able to pull off cute cards. I enjoy seeing what others do with 3-D projects but for now I'm learning with cards.

Shannon said...

I prefer floral cards to cute. I'm just starting to do some altered art and I like it but cards are my first thing.

Thanks for the blog candy offer.

Splashryan said...

No, thank you for your inspiration. I love your blog and all your designs! I love both floral and cute cards! I prefer the cute ones only because I have two little boys and seeing cute cards reminds me of them! I do prefer cards to 3D projects as there is more of an instant gratification for me. 3D progects tend to take a little longer. Congrats on your 5000th hit! Thanks for letting us play!

Heather said...

I like cutsie and floral. Put the two together and that's even funner. And, I like both cards and 3-D projects. It's all fun.

Heather S.

Patricia said...

I have surprised myself at how much I'm drawn to floral stamps..I jus tnever tire of them. As to whether 3D or cards...I love cards, but I also really enjoy complicated projects too...I have a hard time making anything too simple.

Judy S said...

When I first started making cards, I leaned towards the "cute" cards. Now I'm more to the floral. Love 3-D projects, especially anything made with coasters!

Jessica (jessrose21) said...

I love floral cards but I find that people most like to receive cute ones. So I guess both! I mostly make cards so I like to see them, but I also like the occasional 3D project. If it's something involved, I know that I'm probably never going to do it!

Denise Mennella said...

I definitely prefer floral cards tocute ones. And, if I had to choose, I prefer to make 3D projects over cards. But both have their place and I love to be able to give handmade cards. I guess I like the 3D because it's more involved.

Colleen said...

I really like the looks of flower cards, but to make them myself, I guess I am drawn to cutsie cards...(how does that qualify?) I like cards the best, but I do love to see new ideas for altered items...I have a stack of things to be altered...they just take longer to do, so I procrastinate.

stefanie said...

Hi! Love your blog! I'd have to say my preferences go through stages. I have just recently become obsessed with cards! :) My current preference is floral. Have a great day!

Kelly said...

I love floral cards the most. I can't get make any cutesy stamp work for me, but I love what others can do with them. I am also very into cards. The 3-D projects are nice but take up a little more time. Awesome stuff on your blog!

Susan said...

I like florals and I like cards - and I like floral cards!! Congrats on a great blog!

Amy said...

...it totally depends on who I am making things for. There are certain people for whom you just have to make something floral and others who would much prefer something cute.

When it comes down to it, I make more cards than 3D projects, so good card inspiration is invaluable, but seeing a new idea for a 3D project is SO cool!

Patzy said...

Love your blog...such great stuff you do. I love cute cards and I'm definitely into 3-D projects. I love the putzy stuff. The more details the better.

Leah said...

hard question cuz I like both! really it depends on the occasion & who the card is for. I think I am leaning more toward floral cards. I love cards the most but am trying to stretch myself into creating more 3D objects. TFS and great blog! :D

Tracy said...

Great stuff !! I stop by your blog regularly and enjoy seeing your stuff.
I am definitely drawn to florals above all else. I like 3-D projects but mostly do cards, I think I am too impatient for a lot of projects!
Tracy (Lodichick)

Linda Shaw said...

Hi! I'm into cute cards and definitely will choose a card over an altered item. 3-D's are pretty cute, just as long as they are clean & understated. I'm not into the gawdy look at all.
Linda SS

stampin_melissa said...

I definately prefer floral cards, I just don't have the knack for cutsie cards.

I prefer cards to 3-D projects, BUT I do enjoy seeing the 3-D projects I just very rarely try any out, although coasters are fun to work with, (now if only I could finish that coaster box I started ages ago!) ;)

Shannon said...

My personal preference is floral cards usually with some kind of patterned paper. I would much rather do cards, because I can make several of the same in a short amount of time.

Sonya said...

I love all types of cards but I do love the cute cards!

Kim said...

Flowers, flowers, and more flowers! Seems floral stamps are taking over my craft room and every time I say I'll buy no more my eyes will come to rest on a floral pattern and I'm adding to the collection again!

I love to make, send, and receive cards but I'm finding that I am more creative with 3-D projects. The ideas for those just seem to flow easier...

Thanks for the offer of blog candy - you've got a lovely assortment of goodies up for grabs!

Kim

Amy Kennedy said...

I like cute cards, but I do think a lot of floral cards are cute!! I prefer cards over 3D. I did just order some small tins that I need to decorate/figure out what I am doing with them before Card Camp next week!!! Eeek!!

I love your blog - check it daily!! Thanks for all of the great ideas!!

LeAnn said...

Oh...wow, such choices! I love, love, love every and all flowers. I prefer 3-d cards; however, they are getting so expensive to mail, I tend to just do layered cards....

Diane said...

A girl can't have too many flowers. I am a flower girl!

I am just started to do some 3D projects now...love them but I am still learning. I just made my first coaster box.


Love your blog...I visit daily!

Diane

Kraftin' Kimmie said...

Okay, if I HAVE to choose, I'll say I love to do cards mostly...but with a lot of depth and texture. And I love ALL cards floral but cutsie ones come a VERY close second!!

scfranson said...

I love florals, floral anything! But there are times when some other kind of card would be best. Love 3-D too.
Claudia F.

Bonnie Weiss said...

Wow, 5000 hits...now THAT'S a milestone! Congrats!
My preference would be floral and lately, it's been a nice change doing some 3D-type projects.

L8ybug2 said...

That's easy, I like them all

regina said...

I love floral and cute cards. Sometimes I like 3d cards to....oh heck I like them all..........regina

Tracy said...

My name is Tracy and I'm from Calgary, Alberta. I actually prefer the floral over cute cards, and although I love 3-D cards, I just never seem to have the time to work on them, so I stick to the basic. But, if I could just sit ALL day, EVERY day and stamp, I would make more fun 3-D cards!!!

Linda H. said...

Florals all the way...and i much prefer cards to 3-D objects.

Wendy L. said...

I prefer cute floral cards. Hahahaha I can't resist a floral stamp. I usually make cards.
Wendy

Dawn Mercedes said...

I do like cute cards...and I"ve been trying to improve my floral cards. I love to see projects! Cards are nice...but it's so fun to see a great project!

Anonymous said...

I guess I like whimsical, which can fall into the "cute" category, although I try to avoid using the "cute" word! I like cards, but like to do some different shapes or folds on them instead of the traditional rectangular shape.

Anonymous said...

It's funny that this question has come up as I am planning a stamp camp and everything I am looking to do is a 3-d project. I love these things but the last camp I had everyone requested cards so I have had to curtail my wants and go cards only. :( As far as florals or cutsie cards, I love them both, but I will go for florals since you asked.
Thanks,

I like cute cards the most be there definitely is a place and moment for floral... such as Mother's Day. I love making cards but have recently started the 3D stuff... I like the challenge.
Cheers and love your blog candy choices... very generous.

Kheila said...

I love making "cute" cards.....lots of fun. I love making cards, but I have made a few 3-D and altered projects and I think that is a real blast! You always need a change. Thanks for the chance to win some great blog candy!

Selina said...

I love floral cards most of the time. I have more flower stamps than any other. 3-D vs. card depends on the mood and the project. But I make more cards than 3-D.

KOstvig said...

Is all of the above an answer!
I love cards & flowers. I love making 3d gifts for friends and as gifts. I guess I could say I like flowers more than cute. If that helps tough question.

Jan Scholl said...

I just love cards that are well put together and I love layered ones.

kamstamper said...

Wow, Congrats on reaching 5000!! In answer to your question, I prefer floral over cute cards and prefer cards over 3D type projects.

Pam Downie said...

I love floral cards and ribbon. I think I have become a ribbon addict. Great blog!

Anonymous said...

I love floral and like cards most of the time but 3-D for a change of pace.

Loretta said...

I love floral cards (I seem to be drawn to floral stamps more), but I also like cutsey cards for my granddaughters who are 3 and soon to be 5 on 4/22. My eyes appeal to the 3-D effects on a card because they seem to pop more than a regular card and I get more favorable comments when I do those (not to say that I don't get comments on regular cards, because I do). I've been giving more altered items as gifts than I have in the past and enjoy making them.

By the way, I love your blog and become inspired whenever I viisit it.

Loretta said...

I definitely love floral cards as opposed to cute cards; however, I do cute cards for my 2 granddaughters who are 3 and soon to be 5 (on 4/22). I tend to appreciate 3-D cards and altered projects more because of the depth and intensity of the project and all of the love that goes into them.

By the way, I love your blogsite and get inspired each time I visit.

Thanks for sharing all you do.

Mary C. said...

I love floral cards and I love altered items that I can make for gifts. Thanks for theblog and the candy.

Ila said...

I prefer cute ones..but I love florals too. I like cards the most...probably cause I am always needing one for someone.

Whitney said...

Can I comment even though I just found your blog? I saw one of your cards on another blog and thought it was beautiful! I guess I prefer floral cards because I don't do "cute" as well. I love to make 3-d projects.

Lori-Ann Bartels said...

okay..I guess I am very new to this - I left my comments under the wrong post. So let's try this again: I loved the card you made for Beate's birthday, so I think that means I love flowers! As far as choosing between a card and 3-d, I'll choose card, even though I love making little books and boxes, but I do make more cards.

Regina D. said...

Boy, I hope you haven't drawn a winner yet. I love a pretty floral card, but am starting to find the cutesy ones fun, too.

Fran M said...

I love floral cards over cute ones, although I don't mind cute if they are done well. My first love is always cards, but I do alot of other paper arts. My stamp club has a different project every year for our round robins and I get into those, but always love doing cards best for birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

Bethany Paull said...

I enjoy both types of cards equally. But I do prefer cards to 3-D items.

Steph said...

I think that I prefer floral cards over cuts and as far as projects go I make mostly cards though I am starting to get more into 3D projects.

imteresa said...

I like cute cards more than floral, although it's a close call. I am also more into cards than I am 3-d projects, but that changes throughout the year.

Melissa Roth said...

I like cute because my inspiration comes from my 5 yr. old daughter. I only do cards although someday I hope to advance to scrapbooking.
Melissa R.

marcie said...

Your cards are awesome - my favorites are the florals. And right now I am mostly into cards (quicker). Thanks!

Paula said...

I love floral cards. I like making cards tha most but enjoy 3-D projects too. Great blog.

mjb coffee said...

I love floral cards, have to sit on my purse to prevent from buying another flower related stamp. I prefer to make cards rather than making 3-D projects.

mindy said...

Hi there. I prefer flower cards. Even though there is a place for cute cards too. I am just impressed by creative people and any card that they make. I like to give 3-gifts becasue my friends really appreciate the time and love that go into their presents. Great blog candy!!!!

Alli said...

Definitely floral...it just goes a long way...cutesy is only for certain occasions (my 2 cents!). And cards! I just love giving cards to people. I save 3-d projects as special gifts!
Happy stamping!!!
Alli

chrissyhooker said...

I love floral stamp sets and probably have more of them than anything else, but I make all kinds of things. Here lately I have been making invitations (kinda plain and boring actually)and am looking forward to doing more crafty stuff!!

happy4u said...

I hope I'm not too late to post. I've had trouble with my PC and could not respond earlier.
I like floral cards over the cute one anyday. I would rather make cards than a project. This is just me and my humble opinion!

mjb coffee said...

I love the floral stamps, I have more of them because I love beautiful flowers.
