Monday's Fun Day!

I posted a poll a month ago and it looks like "Try This, Tuesday" and "Color Challenge Wednesday" were the most popular, followed by "Manic Monday" and "3-D Friday". Last, but not least, is "Scrapbook Thursday". Personally, I think it was the name. lol!

I have decided to kick things off on the last day of March. Instead of "Manic Monday", I am calling my blog giveaway day "Monday's Fun Day".

So here we go!

The first Whoopsie Daisy blog candy is:


What you have to do is take a look at how many comments have been posted so far because you will (theoretically) be the next number. Be sure to type that number in first before typing in anything else in the comment box so that you don't forget! Then post what your favorite technique is or one that you just learned this past weekend that you would like to share. I love to rock-n-roll!

I will use a number generator or a number picker (one of my boys) and post a winner on Thursday morning along with a new name to replace "Scrapbook Thursday".

What?! Just one stamp set as a giveaway? I wouldn't do that to you. lol! My blog candy has a special twist. You get little extra treats with the stamp set. You just have to wait and see what else you get! lol!

Have a fun day!

I am #2...ha!

Hmm...I quite liked working on an altered tin (my first) yesterday. I still have to learn more but it is nice to make something "functional". Cheers to you!

#3 - Hi there. Love your blog. I always loved what you created when we were both on PCMB. I am now a resident of the Stamp-Shack. I'm not sure if you would call it a technique but I love using punches on my cards. I just created a card with the SU ticket corners and the photo corners punches and I really like how it turned out. Thanks for offering the blog candy.

#4 Hi Jane!

I just learned about misting your stamp before you stamp it. Don't know what the actual name for this is...but that's what I got!! LOL :)

Hi Jane, I just learned how to use the cropodile. I smash a few small eyelets until I learned to turn the little black things to different sizes! LOL

Monday's Fun Day...Yipee. Great name and great candy. I am now into distressing everything. The edges of the paper, sponging, etc. That's this week. Next week it will be something different I'm sure of it. Thanks so much for sharing.

11 - My favorite technique is embossing. It is so beautiful. I just recently tried it with a Versamark pad so the colour just changes slightly from that of the cardstock

I love all the techniques! My favorite right now is my watercolor crayons that I got for Christmas.

#19 my fav is definately embossing, but I am really anxious to learn how to use my brayer

I am really into emboss resist right now. Love to put ink down first then emboss, ink the entire surface and then wipe of the embossed part. really love how the original colors show through

My favorite technique is to distress by inking the edges.

Hi, the scratch-n-sniff is my new favorite...I will be trying that later today. Thanks for all the great ideas!

#30 -

My favorite is stamp kissing! I love how you can take two great stamps and make something totally unexpected by just using them in a different way.

Linda SS said...

#31 I have always enjoyed dry embossing. I'm so happy to see the tutorial on scratch & sniff because I've been wondering how it's done. Thank you for offering a chance to win this fun SU set.

Carolina said...


Favorite technique right now is reverse cuttlebug embossing...I swear if it can go through the cuttlebug it's getting the technique done to it - LOL!

Cheryl KVD said...

33- WOW!!! I really wanted that stamp set but wasn't able to get it! You are very generous!! My favorite technique now is paste embossing. It gives me new reasons to use my old brass templates and I love the finished look!
