Valita,

I have just started to follow your blog and have enjoyed reading backwards. I will have to check our your videos.

I watched you use these embossing tools on the punched flowers just recently. I have never seen any embossing tools quite like these and would love a chance to win.

Thank you.

How to pick a 'favorite'??? oye! *grin* You've done SOO many gorgeous things. hmmm *ponder*ponder* I think either the Daffodils or the Calla Lilies.

You are sooo inspiring, and your work never ceases to amaze me! I love all your flowers, and have tried to make several like yours.:) I follow your blog. Thanks for this chance. :)

Just Jenna said...

I'm not sure but, I think I might have screwed up my comment! Anyway, Valita I think you're an inspiration to us all. I'm a follower of your You Tube channel and your blog. My favorite project.. it's almost impossible to pick just one but, for the purpose of this Give-Away, I'll say the Calla Lilies! *grin* btw.. I made some Easter cards using your 'Simple Punch Art Tulips' and got totally rave reviews! Thank you so much.

Lisa said...

Since I check your Blog every time you post, I have seen you use these tools on all projects. The most recent being the Tulip which I just loved.

Raine said...

i've already left a comment on youtube but had to say how wonderful the necklaces and rings were.

Virginia Wingo said...

I enjoyed watching you use this tool on the Simple Punch Flower video. I even went in to Ebay however I didn't have much luck finding it there. I have been using a small spoon to curl the paper and while it works it sure would be easier with this tool. Thanks for your very well done videos and patterns. I have made some lovely cards because of them.

Virginia Wingo said...

I first saw you use this tool on your Simple Punch Flower Video and I tried to purchase it on Ebay, however was not able to find it. I have been using a small spoon which works, however it sure would be easier with this tool :). Thanks so much for all your very well informed videos and patterns.

Very glad to hear you are feeling, and sounding, much better. I am a subscriber to both your blog and your YouTube station. It is difficult to choose a favorite video, but I did enjoy the simple punch flower- because it is just that - simple!
Keep doing what you are doing - thanks.

Colleen said...

Thank you Valita. Boy, could I ever use those tools as I don't have any but 1 which is very tiny. I'm just starting in making my own flowers,so these would be a great help in my flower making.
I'm a follower as well a long time subscriber.
I do like the simple punch flower that you had done. Easy enough to make even for me.

Becky Cummins said...

Hi Valita,
Just wanted to let you know that I have been checking out your blog and have really been impressed with your work. After I saw the whimsical Easter card with the egg flowers, I went out to look for the tool. Could not find it around here. Also I have been trying to find the Fancy that dies. Is that an Aussie company or do you think they are sold in the U.S.A.? I am also going to try my hand at the punch art tulips. Loved that video as well. Thanks so much for sharing the video!

Hi Valita...I'm so excited to have the opportunity to win this set of embossing tools. I live in Kelowna, BC, Canada and there isn't a craft store anywhere here that sells them. I am a blog subscriber and I would have to say that the peony flower was my favorite flower you made using this embossing tool. My other favorite kind of card you've shared is the lattice card. Every time I made one of these cards, the person receiving the card is amazed. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with all of us cardmakers. Sue

Hi Valita!!!!!! ( Everyone MUST be waiting & not want to be #1 in leaving a comment! :)) I am a NEW subscriber to your blog! I think the first posting I saw of yours was the March 27, 2012 posting with "A Simple Punch Flower!" I've looked back through your blog but that one flower was SO SIMPLE & SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!! It's my FAVORITE & the one that sticks out in my mind! I HAVE TO tell you Valita, I enjoy listening to you talk too!!!!!!! LOVE YOUR ACCENT!!!!!! :)You have inspired me to start making my own flowers for my cards! I've NEVER liked the cost of those pretties in the store anyway! :) THANKS Valita!

Viv said...

Hi Valita. Thanks for the chance to win this great set of tools! It costs the earth 'over here'!
I've been a subscriber to both your Youtube channel (AuntyViv) and also been a subscriber to your blog for AGES. (Just became a follower too to make sure all my bases were covered)! One of my favourite projects of yours using the ball tool, is the latest one, The Simple Flower. Love that flower and loved that embossing folder, which I managed to find eventually btw! Well, I'd better stop ramblong now and make room for someone else. lol xxx

mmup57 said...

I am a subscriber of your blog. I love watching all the flowers you make and it would be so awesome to win the tools you use to make these wonderful creations!

Suzi said...

What a generous gift! But, I want you to know that should I win and it's too expensive to mail to the US, that's okay. Following your blog, which is what I do, has been a gift in itself. You have taught me a lot. I've purchased some of your fold patterns and have enjoyed them so much. I love that I can make them different sizes on the computer. Great fun. As for using the tool, I think I first noticed it when you got your new one and made the peonies (May 2011). I love the depth it gives to your flowers. Thanks for letting me tag a lot and learn from you. You've been a crafting and a spiritual inspiration.

ednamburgess said...

I subscribe to your blog but once in a while watch your u-tube also. Would love to win your embossing tool set. I love all the flowers you've made using them. Can't pick a favorite as all are so beautiful. Have tried some. In fact just finished the simple punch art tulip card for Easter cards. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and art. Edna B.

I loove your blog and am always amazed at the 'lifelike' flowers you create...One day I read your blog and you were so upset at what 'one' person said how u should be 'giving' your ideas away...."God is great, beer is good and people are crazy!(lol) As the song goes...you're a sweetie and a smart one at that! hugs from Kingston, Canada.

One of my favorite posts using the embossing tool is the 'Pinecone Ornament Christmas card'.
Congratulations on achieving such a devoted following!

britgirl58 said...

I am registered for both your blog and your YouTube channel. I enjoy both very much, but especially your tutorial videos. You have the teaching knack, and your creations are inspiring.
My favorite (how can I pick a favorite?) I think maybe the simple punch flower. I like the way it sits on the card. It reminds me of my Mum's decoupage, and she took hours and hours to make her pictures the old fashioned way.
Good luck to you, and all your "listeners". Thank you for the chance to win.

Teri said...

I am a blog follower and I love your blog and projects. My favorite project with the tool is the simple flower that you did on March 27. Thank you so much for the chance to win this cool tool set.

Deb B (Debadoo) said...

Oh Valita, what a great giveaway! I've been wanting some of these tools for awhile now. I've got a small roller ball, but in many videos I can see where the large ones really do a better job on so many things. I couldn't remember just one project off the top of my head, so I thought I'd check out some videos, and I saw the one for the gum nut tree blossom. Wow!! That is so gorgeous, and such an interesting plant. I've always wanted to visit Australia for so many reasons, and this just added another one! Congrats on so many followers. I've subbed to your blog for quite awhile. Thanks so much for all the inspiration you give!

Velda said...

I just love watching you make flowers! I believe the first I watched was the roses, but have watched so many since and your work fascinates me. I just love the sound of your voice as you teach. Your creativity is so amazing.

I am so glad that you share your talent.

Sue said...

Valita you are such a generous and caring woman. I've been following you for a couple of years now, I started when I saw your video on the Dr. Who birthday card for your son. My favorite videos were on your lattice card fronts - I just loved the one your sent to your daughter in India! I even tried making my own from your vidoes (http://suescraftymess.blogspot.com/search/label/Lattice).My favorite video with these tools, at least similar ones, were your peonies! They are my favorite early summer (winter where you are) flower. I just want to say thank you for so much inspiration and so many, many beautiful ideas you turn into works of art. I wish you happiness and love. Sue

Hi Valita, I have followed your blog for the last year or so...especially love learning about Australia. It's hard to say which project I liked the best. I love them all and have tried many. I, too, noticed the large ball embossing tool and wondered when I can find it. Can you post a link to purchase it? Thank you for all of the hard work you put into making this blog so special. love...

Dianal said...

Hi Valita. I have been following your blog for a while now. You are puting pressure on me to decide which of your progjects I liked the best when using these embossing tools, that would be like asking a mother who her favourite child is ... my answer to you would be that I have liked everything you created so far ... I am never disappointed and always learn something. However, if I must pick one, then it would be the card you did with the pine cone. Thank you for this opportunity to win a great giveaway as I have been looking for these tools and have been unsucessful. Looking forward to your next project.

Nancy Seed said...

Congrats of your "following" achievements! I know every time I get and email from you there will be another great flower or creation that I think, why didn't I think of that idea. I have to say I have seen you use these tools on several projects, just can't pin point one particular one that I like best. I do love the Calla Lily that you create though. Fingers crossed, as I would love to win a set of these great tools. If not I will certainly be looking out for them in the cake decorating section of my local craft store.

Hi Valita. I've been following your blog for a couple of years now, and am constantly amazed by your creativity. You are an inspiration, and it has been a privilege to share your journey. I clearly remember the first time I saw you use these tools on the Paeonie roses, and could see that they made a much better job than the plastic stylus. I have been looking out for them, but haven't found any anywhere. Thanks for offering them as a giveaway.

I subscribe to your blog. I love all your punch flowers and the innovation you bring to each project. I actually looked on line for the tools you are giving away and couldn't find them but I wasn't looking in the baking area!

Jeannine said...

I just discovered your blog and your videos. I follow both and would love to win the embossing tools. I liked the way you used it on the flower punch on your blog. I look forward to placing an order for your patterns. I made the egg card for my mother for Easter and it took me at least two hours. I had to create a pattern on Cricut first, tweak it, and then cut it. After two or so hours, trust me, your patterns are well worth the price! i finished the card. Everyone thought it was wonderful, but they hadn't seen yours. You are one talented lady. Keep the patterns and videos coming.

Jeannine said...

I have just discovered your blog and videos. Fabulous! I follow both. I can't wait to place an order for some patterns. I made the egg Easter card for my mother. It took me a couple of hours after cutting out a pattern from my Cricut and then tweaking it before I cut it out with the papers I wanted to use. Everyone thought it was wonderful; but they had not seen your version. What you charge for your patterns is certainly not enough. Some people don't understand the time involved. Well anyway, I hope I win this set of embossing tools. I liked how you used it on the flower punch. Really great idea. Glad you had a happy Easter. Keep the patterns and videos coming!

Vickie Kertz said...

Thanks for the all the tips and your great site!! ~Steph

While surfing YT videos, I've caught myself watching your videos more and more. I've subscribed to your site because I enjoy trying to duplicate what you create. Your extremely talented. Sometimes, I've watch one video several times to make sure that I create them just the way you have. I love the calla lilies, pansies, & peonies (done with that wonderful tool that is so hard to find.)
I love all the paper flowers. BTW, where did you get that tool?

Kay said...

I subscribe to both your You Tube updates and your blog. Love all the inspiration you give with every project you post. You are so very talented.

Hello, Miss Valita, I discovered you on Youtube when looking for a way to use the heart punch I mistakenly ordered. There were the lovely flowers you made, and I love the dimension the tools give the petals. I've become a follower of your blog since and have learned so much -- thank you for your generosity of your knowledge and skills. You are also a talented teacher. That heart punch was the best mistake ever (like I've heard you say, an opportunity to learn something new.) Thank you for the opportunity to win these fabulous tools. My flowers would look even better using them!

Charlemagne G. Gargalicano said...

Hi! Valita i really love your blog and the videos your making .I like the paper flowers you made with your owl punch its really unique then when i see the result i shocked because your work is like a real card selling on a bookstore really . so I saw this blog of subscriber giveaway and i would ask if the embosser are available right now i thought i want to have it to my next project about making an easy step paper flowers without using any scrapbook expensive gadgets because here in our place there are only limited material in scrap booking, i wait for years for the availability of embosser tools but the wait is not worth it, and i found out this tools are very expensive. i know tools in scrap-booking are for scrap booking but for me i use only improvising materials for scrap booking for my project at school so that i have big grades but i couldn't afford buying expensive materials , but that okay if there is no available of the embosser that's okay . i would just thank you , for teaching us what you have learn for scrap booking thanks for sharing your creative thoughts and ideas hope more blessing to come . and more videos you will show for us really really thanks

love your fan Charlemagne G. Gargalicano also known as Bordy
