    My favorite is the hexagon punch with matching stamp set. I have seen so many creative uses for it, it seems to fuel creativity. Even using it to shape a 3-D box to simulate a box of tissues for a get well card. What fun.

  2. Donna Amos July 25, 2013 at 4:39 pm #

    My favorite stamp set os thoughts and prayers. I just wish it wasn’t double sided. It makes wonderful sympathy and get well cards. I enjoy your videos!

    Hi Brandy. I am so impressed at you taking the time to share your convention experiences with us. It sounds absolutely awsome and so exciting – you deserve to win loads and loads!My favourite stamp set from the catalogue is Wacky Wishes. The “Happy Birthday” and “Thank You” are the ones getting the most use at the moment, but I will be starting Christmas card making soon so the “Merry Christmas” greeting will start to get a hammering (no chance of it wearing out tho’ SU! products are such high quality!) The style is suitable for men, women, children, in fact everyone! They are also great both on the outside and the inside of a card.

    Oops! I was mistaken… I was thinking so mucho about the owl punch that I thought of it as a stamp. Sorry about that. My favorite stamp that I wish I have is the Delicate Doily. I hope to see more photos of your Convention and have a safe trip back. hugs!

  118. Lady Fair July 21, 2013 at 10:04 am #

    Congratulations Brandy! I’m so happy for you. My favorite stamp is the Owl stamp. I wish I can order that right now, but I’m working on increasing my supply. ๐Ÿ™ still. It’s hard to get everything as you know since I just joined. Sigh! But I’m looking forward to do projects when I get home and start my Stampin Up creations. ????

    Congrats on being at convention! It looks fantastic. I have a “group” of stamp sets that I use almost all the time — They are the bingo bits sets for Halloween, Christmas and Spring. They make the best accents for cards, interior accents and fit in everywhere for a little bit of fun!

  127. Jennifer Warman July 21, 2013 at 9:45 am #

    I am very new to your blog, and I LOVE IT!! You are amazingly talented and so willing to share to help others become just as good. Thank you!!! I just started stamping again after a 10 year break, and it’s so exciting to see how much has changed! It’s hard to pick just one favorite set, but if I must I think it is Giggle Greetings because I love adding humor to cards to make friends smile. Thank you for inspiring me to be a better stamper!!

  128. Vanessa farkas July 21, 2013 at 9:43 am #

    Hmmm my favorite set…Stippled Blossoms

Can’t wait to see pics of the convention!

    Hi Brandy! How fun to win a prize during Convention! Thanks for sharing a chance to win. Right now since it’s summer my favorite set is By the Tide, soon to be replaced by the holiday catalog set Toil and Trouble!

    • Traci Davis July 21, 2013 at 10:17 am #

      Yay, how fun for you! Wow, it’s impossible to name my favorite stamp set…there are just so many wonderful stamps…but I reach for Papillon Potpourri most often, so I’ll choose that one. It is so versatile, it can be used alone or what I mostly do is use one of the butterflies as accents. The coordinating punch makes it a snap to make an embellishment. Congrats for such an exciting experience at Convention.

    • Eunice July 21, 2013 at 9:40 pm #

      Hi Brandy Thank you for sharing, you are very generous. My favorite stamp set is Teeny Tiny Wishes. Its a great start up stamp.
