Weekly Giveaway: I Brake for Stamps!

 I love an elegant stamp set. The I Brake for Stamps Collage Elements #4 stamp set that is being given away today is one of my favorites. I think it is one of the best sets for collage; a touch of vintage, stamps in different sizes, and a great writing background. Even without collage, this is great for Romantic cards, too. I love the man and woman in the boat!

The card that goes with today's giveaway uses the Pulled Pastels Technique from the February 2010 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I thought the feather would be beautiful with the technique -- I love how you can see the detail of it when pulled from the pastels! Although the PP technique has been around for many years, we have never "covered" it -- and you know I love to put old and new techniques in the issues I publish. I just don't ever repeat any (well, I have twice with over 500 techniques, but that was because I had a brain burp). If you are not a TJ member, note that I have a two-year, online-only special for only $18.88 -- that is over 180 techniques for a very low price. Email me for details!

Here is the stamp set for today's giveaway:

I Brake for Stamps has been one of my most supportive partner companies over the years -- and their contribution of the stamp set above is no exception! Remember that TJ members receive 10% off purchases, too, with the code TJ10.  With 13 images on the stamp set, and the discount to boot -- it is a bargain! Della just came out with the most adorable Easter Sheet, too. You should check it out!

Okay, enough "chatter"! To enter this giveaway, simply leave a comment by Monday, March 1st at 9am EST.  The winner will be selected on Monday morning (03-01-10). 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!

Congratulations, Elaine Allen, the winner of this giveaway!
