Ring in the New Year with New Stamps!

I'd knew I could grab your attention with a headline like that! You heard me right. New stamps. For you. Yes, you!

What KIND of stamps, you ask? Jeepers, you guys are demanding! Ok, I'll spill. Right here, at Heartfelt Greetings, you have a chance to win a Verve Visual stamp set called Starlight Starbright Remixed!

As some of you might know, all of the stamps that Verve will produce from here on out will be repositionable photopolymer instead of unmounted red rubber. Since so many of the early Verve rubber stamps were such a hit, Julee decided to make a few of them into clear sets too! Woo-hoo!

I suppose you want to know HOW you can win this new Verve set, mmmm??? I've been thinking about that very thing for a while now, and I think I've finally settled on a way to do it. I'm really going to make you work hard to win this stamp set, girlfriends. You have to put on your thinkin' caps for this contest!

Ok here goes. Please leave me a comment, on this post ONLY, telling me what kind of stamps YOU'D like to see Verve Visual produce! I want to be able to give Julee a great big list of the kinds of stamps YOU GUYS (or GALS), the people who actually buy the stamps, would love to see created by someone. Leave me ideas for images, sets, and sentiments! If you've thought about this before, then now's the time to reveal your great idea! Now, I can't promise Julee will ever use any of the ideas (I'm kinda doing this whole deal without her prior knowledge or written consent...yikes), but you never know. Julee's a savvy businesswoman, and cares about her customers (might I add she's also a fabulous boss and cares immensly for her design team????). If she knows her customers really want something specific in a stamp set, she'll do what she can to bring it to you! Here's your chance to have a voice--I hope everyone that visits my blog will participate in this giveaway! Speak now or forever hold your peace!!!

I can't WAIT to read about all your fabulous ideas!!!!! I know they'll be amazing!

I will give you up until December 31st, midnight, to enter the contest. A winner will be drawn bright and early on January 1st, 2008! Only one entry per person, please.

Well, it's about time to hit the "publish" button so the ideas can start rollin' in! I can't wait!!! Oh, by the way, January 10th is the big day Verve releases 5 new clear sets! Beginning January 1, there will be daily sneak peaks on the Verve blog highlighting all of them! Woo-hoo!

Hugs,

Amy

  1. Hi Amy and Happy New Year!!
    I would love to see Verve Visual do a stamp set that combines phrases for both the outside of the card and then would work for the inside. I have heard them called "inys and outies"--not sure how to spell them. I love the verve stamps. Thanks for the chance.

  2. What a wonderful way to start the new year. Thanks for the opportunity to score some goodies. For me, I'd like to see more awesome layering flowers like the Fancy Floral or the Snowflakes that can be layered. Of course, more girly stuff won't hurt either. ;)

  3. What a great set! I would love to see some celtic knot designs!

  4. Like Lindy Stamper, I love to layer - some more circles, flowers, snowflakes that can be cut or punched and layered would be wonderful to see. I just love the Starlight Starbright Remix set! Thanks and kudos to both you and Julee!

  8. Happy New Year! :-) Thanks for the opportunity. I would like to see some stamps with some solid shapes and patterns that can be used to create patterned papers. I love the sayings too and the only thing is I feel like there could be more sayings for father's day.

    Amy, I would love to see a set that incorporated dancing, i.e. ballet, for the tons of kids who do, and also gymnastics, for the same reason. And stamps that incorporated "Congrats on your new home" or "Congrats on your new reno" for all the couples (and singles too!) who are doing that right now. Lynn

  26. I would like to see stamps related to running and working out-especially aimed at women, so yoga, weightlifting etc. I also need poems or such for inside cards. I find they are needed for sympathy cards especially. I need more than one or two words.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would love to see some sentiments that can be used inside as well...and I can never have enough of flourishes..some of those would be great too..

  36. Thanks for a chance to win a goodie! I would love to see more "boy" stuffs! I have the hardest time finding things for boys/men that aren't fishing/hunting related. I have SU's pirate set and it's adorable, but I'm sure my son will be tired of it before long :) I'd love to see just some sailboats/lighthouses/airplanes/vintage cars for men... and maybe some larger sized images of dinosaurs/space themes/monsters for young boys.

  40. I love doodling so I think some doodles would be fun; flowers, shapes, flourishes etc. I also would like phrases for insides of cards. OH! and something to do with fitness. (we have an ongoing fitness challenge at work to promote healthy lifestyles) Oh and something for Secret Pals...

    Is that enough for now?? Thanks!

  41. What a neat set...a gal can't ever have enough sayings which leads me to my wish for more stamp sets that have something for the inside of cards. Sometimes what to stamp inside the card is the hardest part.

  42. What FABULOUS stamps!! I've been looking all over for some Yoga stamps. I'd love some cute images of upside-down ladies, ladies in an "om" pose, etc. There could be some cute sentiments relating to relaxing too. Thanks!

  44. First of all, thanks for your great blog. It's really inspirational. What I'd like to see is always more stuff that be used for masculine cards. Sentiments are good, but I'd also love to see images that can be used this way. Thanks.

  45. I would like to see some border stamps. and some great gut stamps. Susan

    ReplyDelete
  46. I am in agreement with the need for more masculine stamps that aren't hunting and/or fishing.

    Birthday sentiments and thank you phrases are always something I need.

    Maybe a good basic baby set that isn't too cutesy.

    I really like the idea of having sentiments that celebrate relationships and sets that are for the outside AND the inside of a card.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hi Amy, thanks for the chance to win and for our opinions! I would really like to see some "real" looking stamps, I'm getting tired of the all the cartoonie stuff. I would also like to see some inside card verses. Good luck in compiling all of the great ideas I'm sure your going to get!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I make generic 'note' cards. So phrases along the musical theme would be great.

  49. I love Julee's phrases stamps and would like to see a set of heartfelt phrases. I always have a hard time finding the right simple, thoughtful phrase for sympathy cards, for instance. Thanks for the chance!

    always looking for these.

  55. I already have several of Julee's sets (not this one, though, fingers crossed!), but I would love to see some of her clever and trendy images and phrases worked into a larger size -- more so for use on scrapbook pages. Her current offerings are great for cards, but perhaps a little small for grand use in 12 x 12 format... Thanks so much, and Happy New Year! I so enjoy your blog! Mary (mashby@illinoisalumni.org)

  56. Oh my stars!!! I love these stamps. How great stars are because they can be used for so very many occassions ... and for boys and men too. Thats my wish for furture sets ... sets that work for masculine cards (teen guys and beyond). Stamps that inspire me to make wonderful cards for the guys in my life - it's easy to find things for all the woman and girls but not so much for the guys. Oh Amy - what a fun way to start the new year. I hope I win! *wink* (don't we all just shout and giggle and say pick me - pick me!!)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I believe I had never been to the Verve Site or seen these stamps. How could I ask for something more, when I don't even have the ones already made?? :) They are all so very nice. I suppose if I have to think of something ....maybe some more Birthday stamps.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'd like to see some scriptures, more masculine or teen style stamps. I love the Verve style so would love anything Julee comes up with I am sure!

  61. I would love to see more "Boy" sentiments like... COOL DUDE! SNAP! SWEET! COWABUNGA! PEACE OUT! Things that I can scrapbook boy pages with would be awesome!
    Also cool Birthday sentiments for boys would be great too because I have a hard time finding stamps cool enough for 10 and 12 year old boys!
    Thanks for sharing! Happy 2008.

  67. I lovethe idea of phrases for inside and outside of a card, but animal stamps, masculine stamps that are more everyday and not specific to a sport or a hobby!

    I would love to see more masculine and also vintage stamps. I love vintage and it really is timeless in a sense. Masculine stamps are really harder to come by and not just "BOY" stamps. I mean really masculine images for MEN. That would make my life so much easier when it comes to making cards for the men in my life: Hubby, Dad, Father-in-Law, Brother-in-Law, etc.
    Thanks for offering such a prize to your viewers. BTW, I actually bought your now famous bird stamps 2 days before I saw your first post of them! I was so excited to be inspired before I even knew it. LOL! Take care and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  73. great giveaway!!
    I think that with Christmas over, but still many months of snow, I would like to see some images of snow related activities.. skating, skiing, Hockey, sledding, but without the Christmas characters.

    Also would like some more inside the card sayings.

    Cheers,

  80. I would love to see a stamp/set of stamps that have a distressed ornate scroll to use for card corners. Example: Fancy Pants has a beautiful one, but is way too large for cards. I have been looking and can't seem to find what I want.

  84. It is so hard to say because Julee does such a wonderful job! Her sentiments are both beautiful and unique and that is a hard combo to find! I am a nature lover (everything to whimsical,quirky to elegant) so some birds or butterflies along with some of her awesome sentiments would be great! Thanks for this awesome opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  85. A couple of things that I'd like to see/find in stamps:

    1) a set or group that caters to co-workers and the boss...we know there are a lot of stampers who make things for 'the boss' or co-workers, so this would be fun and very useful!

    2) an international set...thinking of Russia, France, China, Japan, etc...not sure how, but I know alot of friends and people who are making big career moves - to France, to Japan, and to China...and a friend who just returned from Russia (she met her fiance over there). If there were a way to make stamps to fit these areas, I'd be very likely to buy them!!

  98. OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Must have this set. The sports teams at the school where I teach are called the Starz, this set would be perfect. A set that I am looking for is something that I could use to label my homemade jams that I make every year. The sets that I have found are all holiday related and I give my jam out all year. I need labels that are not just for the Christmas holidays. Thanks for the chance.

  99. This is a great set!! You know what I would love to see?? Some sets that fit the new Nestabilites!! I just ordered myself a swak of them and matching stampsets the would fit them would be awesome!! :0)

  100. Amy-

    I love your blog. You have such great ideas! (I just read the post about the monogram "G".) I don't really have type of stamp to request, only that you keep giving great ideas on how to use them.

  105. Wow, there are so many ideas running through my head about what kind of stamps Verve should make. I guess I am always looking for great verses for the inside of my cards. Sometimes I just don't have time to research for verses on the computer. I like having some nice birthday, get well, congrats and basic holiday sayings to use in a pinch for those insides. Thanks for the great blog candy contest.
    PS
    I love the sets that I already have from Verve!

  106. I tend to agree with a lot of girls on here that masculine stamps are needed. My hubby doesn't fish or do sports, so he's a tough one to make cards for. Anything that's masculine.
