Thinking Of You

December Giveaway!

Hi friends! Thanks for stopping by… if you’ve followed the link from my Instagram page, you are in the right spot! I can’t believe it’s December again… and it happens to be my most favorite time of the year. Christmas is only a few weeks away now, so I think December 1st is a perfect day to start a giveaway!! I have put together 3 packages of some of my must-have items to give away. Lets talk about them first.

Instagram Giveaway Package #1: Pretty Pink Posh Penguin Pals & Decorative Ornaments stamp sets, My Sweet Petunia Mini MISTI, and a matching pink My Sweet Petunia Studio Bag.


Why did I pick these items? Pretty Pink Posh is a top Go-To stamp company for me. I love the stamps, dies, embelishments, jewels… And this past November release blew me away!  I am living a dream being on the PPP design team, and the owner Paulina is as supportive as she is genuine.  I told her I was doing this giveaway, and she graciously sent me my favorite Christmas stamps from the newest release. The MISTI and bag was picked because, well lets face it- 90% of my stamping involves a MISTI. So that is the most used tool in my crafty space. And the bag is another one of my must-haves since I like to travel to classes. I live in a rainy state, so to be able to have TONS of room to pack up my supplies, and be able to zip-up my bag (not to mention that it’s absolutely adorable), I’m in!!

Instagram Giveaway Package #2: Trinity Stamps Blendabilities Brush Set, release #5 Distress Oxide Ink set, Trinity Stamps embelishments, and Washi tape.


Lets talk about Trinity Stamp Blendabilities brushes for a second… They’re amazing. I’ve seen a few companies selling similar brushes, and I’ve drooled over them. But the price point was a bit high. But then Trinity Stamps released theirs, and at a fair price! I’ve been using mine almost daily ever since I received them. The bristles are so soft, and blend like a dream! So- these are another must-have for me. As are Distress Oxides!! Most of my cards have oxide inks somewhere on them. In fact, my ink pads are on my desk at arms reach! so these two items together make a perfect match. I also told Taniesa, the owner of Trinity Stamps, I was doing this giveaway, and she was excited for me! She sent me a set of brushes, and new embellishments and washi tape that she just added to her shop. Washi tape… something so small is so valuable to me. LOL I could not die cut with out it. I have a big bowl of tape on my desk. if they’re not holding down my dies, they’re decorating my envelopes!

Blog Giveaway Package #3: My Favorite Things Secret Santa stamp set, MFT ink cube set, Trintity Stamps embellishments and washi tape.


Christmas stamps… the more the merrier is my motto in my craft space. And this one is so cute! The MFT inks are hybrid, good for alcohol markers, or watercolor. I find myself reaching more and more for hybrid black inks now. I like that I can use different mediums without compromising my projects by ruining the ink lines.

How to win:

Package #3 is up for grabs on this blog.  A winner will be randomly picked in the comments below. Tell me what some of your crafty MUST-HAVES are. (and if you have any favorite Distress Oxide color combinations, I would love to hear about those too!!) All comments must be left by 11:59 pm PDT Friday, December 7, 2018 .

  23. I am just a beginner in the stamper world. Just found instagram and the awesome stamper/cardmaker community and I fell in love 😍 So far I did more scrapbooking, so fav tools are my doublesided tape, scoring board and the Cinch for binding. Have a lovely day!

    1. I just hit one yr anniversary on Instagram. I didn’t know about this wonderful world until almost 2 yrs ago. Good luck!

  24. Such an amazing giveaway Angelica 😍 Thanks for the opportunity to win! I actually love copics and Distress Oxide inks. Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean are my fav sky combo colors 💙 I am such a newbie at watercoloring but seeing people’s amazing work on IG inspires me to want to try that medium too.

    1. Watercolor still makes me nervous, but I bought a pan of colors and I practice here and there. Copics are amazing!!

  25. What a generous giveaway! I’ve been following you in IG forever and love your creations. Crafty must haves for me are a good paper trimmer, my Chameleon pens and distress inks. Amongst my favourite oxide combos are mustard seed, spiced marmalade and picked raspberry!

  29. Hi thank you for this very generous opportunity. My must have is my Tim Holtz stamp platform!! And as far as DO combos….it really depends on the look I am going for. Since the possibilities are almost endless!!

  30. Wow! What a generous opportunity! I go for coll color combos…wilted violet, salty ocean and Blueprint sketch! My favorite roll is the Misti. How did we ever stamp without it!

    1. I have no idea! I’ve only been stamping for a short while, and I wouldn’t have stuck around if acrylic blocks and wood stamps were all that was used. Lol

  31. Some of my crafty must-haves are: tape runners, black ink, markers or pencils, and stamps of course!! Oh oh oh and the Tim Holtz craft mat, I always have it underneath! I don’t have any combos of oxide inks because I don’t have any oxide inks to try with yet! But seeing them on IG posts and YouTube videos is so exciting, they look like they blend like a dream! 😍

  32. Hi Angelica. What a wonderful opportunity!!! I love my self healing mat and T ruler…I use them allot! I’m always on the search for the perfect adhesive and have acquired allot. Definitely a good stamp cleaner too! I really like having those wood cuticle sticks, they come in handy for a multitude of uses, this has been a staple in my supply arsenal. For oxide ink combos I really like antique linen with tattered rose another combo is squeezed lemonade with worn lipstick and carved pumpkin, for galaxy I like mermaid lagoon with blueprint sketch, wilted violet and black soot. I dont own allot of oxide inks but am hoping to add more over time.

    1. Oooh… thanks for the tips! My go-to Glue is Art Glitter Glue. It’s amazing. But it can’t be shipped in winter months. You should try it in spring. (Psst… get the coordinating metal fine point tip)

  33. I would say my Christmas craft must have is glittery paper, I always try to find a way to feature glitter in a Christmas card! Does are also a must, cutting around stamps by hand is always so fiddly and you need some pens to colour the does with, I love my spectrum noir pens. I have only started using distress oxides in the last month but I would say my current favourite colour combo is distressed denim and faded lilac!

  34. What fabulous giveaways! You are so sweet! My fave oxide ink combo for a background is wilted violet, picked raspberry and worn lipstick. My must-have supplies are my Misti and my Big Shot.

    1. Oohhh… I did a background with those colors in a blog last month! Also used spun sugar at the bottom and a little black soot on the top. Gorgeous!

  35. Cannot craft without my Misti. Love my oxides especially salty ocean, broken China and cracked pistachio. Awesome giveaways. You are so generous! Merry Christmas 🎄

  36. My crafty must-haves are Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Copics, MISTI, and Brother ScanNCut2. Ninety-eight percent of my cards use all of those. Thanks for the giveaway!

    1. Yes! Scan and cut was just brought into our family thanks to my hubby. He said it was a good investment for him. 😂😂😂

  37. You’re to kind with your giveaways. Super sweet. My must haves are double sided tape, which for the life right now I can’t remember the brand. My mom gets it in bulk for her and I lol. I also have to have my black momento ink, masking tape my copics lol the list could keep going lol. As far as blends I’m fairly new to learning. I just did a christmas tree with the blends for background. I used cracked pistachio, mermaid lagoon and salty ocean omgosh i was so impressed how it turned out. I also used water color paper which i think makes it ten times smoother and nicer. I need not to be so afraid to loose the white of my paper and just blend…lol.

  38. Hi Angelica!

    I am so new to stamping and crafting that I need most things lol. I am in such need of a Misti or any stamping tool that it’s not even funny. I just received the Mini Wreath builder stamp set yesterday and boy is it hard to make a wreath without a stamping tool haha. I have given it a few tries and one did look like a wreath so that was good. Lol. I love mixing the distress oxide colors Peacock Feathers, Pine Needles and Chipped Sapphire. So pretty! Right now the Distress Oxides are my favorite thing, but as soon as I have a stamping tool, I’m sure that will be my favorite thing 😃Thank you for the opportunity to try and win these wonderful items. You’re so so generous! Have a blessed day!

    1. I got my Wreath builder yesterday too! Those stamps are so tiny! Hopefully you will have a stamping platform soon. Good luck on your crafting journey Jen!

  39. Thanks for offering up such sweet prizes! My must-haves are my Copics, Mini Misti, Versafine Onyx Black Ink, Clear Embossing Powder, and of course Neenah Solar White #110 Cardstock. I only own a few of these but my favorite Distress Oxides are Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans, and Wilted Violet. May your holidays be filled with many blessings.

  40. My stamptool is a must have. I never get a good result doing it by hand. My favorite distress oxide combination is picked raspberry, wild honey and wilted violet ♥️ Merry Christmas from Finland 🎅

    1. Gorgeous colors!!! Sarah! I just recognized your name. I love your Instagram page! Merry Christmas from Washington State❤️❤️

  41. What generous prize packages. I think one of my favorite crafty items is my Neenah White Cardstock. Sadly, I haven’t worked with Oxides enough to have a favorite combination. Hoping that will change in 2019!

  42. Such a generous giveaway. My dear friend @iluv2scrap Teresa invited me to your Instagram, so pretty. My fave crafty supplies are my Mini Misti, stamps & inks. I am still such a beginner with stamping but have been scrapbooking & using project life for so many years. I love how adding stamped images just brings an added touch to a finished project. Thanks for the chance to win!

  43. Right now, my must have is my die cut machine! I just got one for the first time and am loving all of the options it gives me! I also love my embossing gun and copic markers 🙂

  44. What an awesome giveaway Angelica! Gosh, so many must-haves- is that bad? LOL OK, definitely a MISTI/stamping platform, copics, 1/8 inch double sided adhesive. I have all the oxides, but have not played with them nearly enough (sheepish look). Thank you again! Crafty hugs!

  45. Hello, I just found you on IG earlier this year and now I found your blog! Yipee! Thank you for such generous giveaways. I would also like to thank you for sharing your creativity. My must haves are my prismacolor pencils and my Big Kick. Thanks again. Have a Fabulous week!

  46. My go-to items in my craftroom are either my MISTI or Stamp Platform (I have both), my Big Shot and and my rather large ink collection (I have a lot, though I’ve been buting more minis and refills lately to save $). I have all 5 releases of the DO inks, but would love a second set as I’ve not bought the refills yet. I’d love to try those new brushes as I am dissatisfied with the mini ink blending tool as a whole. What a great giveaway, thank you!
