Weekly Giveaway: ISC Autumn Leaves

I am such a sucker for fall. I love the brilliant colors of autumn -- the glorious blaze of the trees really makes my heart full of joy. I consider myself lucky to live in New England! This weekend is "prime time" for the leaf peepers, too...

To celebrate nature's most beautiful painting, this week we are giving away these awesome stamps from Innovative Stamp Creations. They are some of the loveliest leaves in my collection -- and are fabulous to color with Copic Markers, Watercolors, Chalks, Watercolor Crayons, Colored name it!

The example I made with the stamps that will be given away with the stamp set below uses a variation of the Crinkle Technique (October 2009 Technique Junkie Newsletter). I layered a Shape Spotlight (December 2005 issue) of the Copic-colored oak leaf and then cut it out so that it has an Out-of-the Box feel (October 2004 issue). I guess after 7 years and 550 unique techniques, it gets easier to use alot of them on one card!!

Okay, here is the set:
Don't forget that Innovative Stamp Creations is a Featured Vendor -- Technique Junkies receive 10% everything with the code dec09tj. Have you seen the new Christmas sets from Betsy? They are wonderful! Can't you just see that ornament in the middle of the Joyful Christmas set done with Paper Piecing?

In any case, I will stop my rambling now and tell you how you can win the card and stamps...
So how do you become the lucky winner of this giveaway? To win this card and the stamps, simply leave a comment by Monday, October 19th at 9am est. If you are so inclined, tell me how you would use these stamps or the Christmas stamps on the ISC site.

The winner will be selected on Monday morning. Make sure that you leave enough information so that I can contact you to let you know you won. Just a reminder that Blogger does NOT leave me your email address. A great way to do this is to leave your email address in a spelled-out way, such as "p huntoon at optonline dot net." I will use my handy random number generator to pick the winning entry. You do NOT need to be a TJ subscriber to win. Good Luck!

The winner of this set of stamps is Candy Meyers - Congrats, Candy!
