Um...Help! (and blog candy)

This candy is now closed.

So! You MAY or may NOT have already seen the sneak peek of my new set coming out this Thursday from Gina K Designs! I am *loving* all these new images and have been coloring and cutting up a storm (can't wait to show you the full set), but my only problem for finishing my projects is that I have so many cute options to use from all my past Basket sets with this new set, I can't decide! LOL! It's a very good problem to have! (Yep, it coordinates with ALL my Basket sets, seven , count 'em, 7!! How's that for mix and match?) I have just been switching them around and loving them all (and, of course, snapping photos as I go!) but can't commit to gluing them down!

Want to help me out (and maybe win the new set)?
Tell me which are your favorite toppers from the different basket sets, or which set (sets) you want to see me using most with this new one (we do have some fall and winter holidays coming up!) Oh, yeah, I plan to sneak them all in to samples for the blog and StampTV gallery eventually, but since I only have couple more days til our party...! What do you think? Look at the sets below and leave a comment telling me some faves or requests where you are looking for inspiration! I will choose one winner from the comments below to receive the new Beyond Baskets set!


Winner announced tomorrow night (Wednesday) here on my blog so you have plenty of time to know whether or not you won or want to order your set on Thursday! :)

Thanks in advance! I'm excited to read your responses, it'll be like we're stamping together to get ready for this one! :)!

Hi Melanie, Can't wait to see the rest of your "basket" release. I have several but not all of our basket sets and the one on my wish list as my new fav is Basket Additions 2. Love your stamps, your work, your creative. Thanks for the chance to win.

Denise Bryant said...

I'd love to see the pumpkins from Basket Additions or the fun Halloween design from Basket Additions 3 set!

Julie said...

I like all the flowers and the Basket buddies (puppies & Kittens). Good luck in your decision.

Shawna said...

BASKET BUDDIES!!!!! The sunflowrs, of course. They are ALL perfect for your new wheel barrow, but, well... it's fall and I just think a wheelbarrow full of sunflowers would be gorgeous!

Donna said...

I have this thing for flowers and when I think of wheel barrels I think of gardens so I would have to say one of the flower sets would be my choice. I particularly like the Spring Basket. Can't wait to see the full set! Have a wonderful day!

Jessica said...

I would love to see the pumpkins or sunflowers in this fabulous wheelbarrow! Can't wait to see the new stamps! :)

Kris in Alaska said...

Oh you have to do the Holiday Basket or Spring Basket because those flowers are just BEGGING to be in that wheelbarrow! Can't wait to see ALL the new sets!

I can't believe that you have so many options available, I can understand why you are having a hard time deciding!!! I vote for the sunflowers from Basket Buddies or the pumpkins from Basket Additions. I think both of those would look fabulous in the wheel barrow.

sandyh said...

i think the pumpkins from the original basket additions would be very cool for this season and would look great in the wheelbarrow! or the sunflowers from the holiday basket.....or...or...

Paige Dolecki said...

What a fabulous assortment! I think Spring basket with Basket Additions is my favorite!

Sue D said...

For this time of year I would pick the pumpkins etc in the Basket Additions set and the sunflowers from Holiday Basket. Mums would be pretty for flowers.

Margaret said...

I love all the flower toppers. They can be used all the seasons and any occasion. I think they would look great in the wheelbarrow.

SusanMV said...

Melanie I personally am planning to ust basket additions 3, skeletons,ghosts,and witches, back to school supplies, grilling suplies for Dad just beg to be filling up a wheelbarrow and I think the kids would love cards with thier stuff in it at this time of year. If you didn't make so many awesome stamps NONE of us would have such hard choices :)
cannot wait to see the rest of the set!!!

Donna Phelan said...

Well for purely selfish reasons I would love to see anything using Baskets Additions, Additions 2, and Holiday Basket.....only because I own them! :) But anything fall would be awesome!

Kathy H said...

They would all be PERFECT in the wheelbarrow but my vote is flowers.

Nancy Seed said...

Wow. Love this cart and have the wheels in motion as to how it could be used. I love the Basket Additions2, the Holiday Basket and the Spring Basket. Can't wait to try these out.

Lorianna said...

WOW
Don't have any of them
But I would have to choose
Basket Additions 2
Spring Basket
in that order!
Thanks so much for the chance for SUPER candy
Hugs

Erin Smetak said...

I actually like the first Basket Additions. Esp. since Christmas is coming. The one w/ Santa would look so cute if you had garland to put on the middle part of the wheelbarrow, and add some snow! It would look so festive!
All of the basket options are so cute and perfect though! I can see your dilemma!
Good luck! ;D

alex said...

Hi Mel
I have all but one of your basket addition sets, but I would love to see you use something from basket additions three with your new set, I have just got to get the new one :-)

PatM said...

Melanie, I love ALL your goodies but I was wondering if you could combine pumpkins and sunflowers for the wheelbarrow? Now that would be a wonderful fall wheelbarrow.... you'd think you were entering it in the County Fair!

Verna Angerhofer said...

I think a cart full of fall garden produce would look great in that image. So I think the pumpkins and other mix of veggies from the Basket Additions. I love that set.

Laurie said...

It's any flower from Spring Basket or the sunflowers from Holiday Basket. (I'm such a flower person!) Can't wait to see the rest of your new set,

Joyce T. said...

love them all Melanie....yep I have them all. The hardest one to use for me (just can't get inspired) is the Basket Buddies. I'd love to see how you use them. Maybe that would be a jump start for me. Thanks!

Glennis said...

They are all wonderful, but the flower ones would be the most useful

Kay S said...

What a dilemma! I have all of your basket sets and I love them all! Such fun to play with and color and switch around. I'm really looking forward to seeing the new "containers" in this set. I'd say my favorites are the halloween, harvest and Christmas inserts since I'm looking ahead to the fall/winter holidays; however, I haven't seen a lot done with the Basket Additions 3, so I'd love more inspiration with those!

Gvendalen said...

I like all flowers and Baskets. I think, for autumn it will be good baskets of apples or vegetables and sunflower.

Rebecca said...

I think they're all great, I'd love to see more of anything flowers (especially fall themed) and Basket Buddies. >^..^<

joy said...

Because my husband is a veterinarian and I make cards for our clients, the Basket Buddies gets my vote!! Can wait to see what you have to inspire us tomorrow!

~ Connie said...

I'd like to try putting 2 baskets in the wheelbarrow - one with flowers and one with produce. Kinda like a big harvest that needs the wheelbarrow to carry it all!

Sherry said...

Oh man this is hard I love the crafting topper but the puppies and kitties Basket Buddies are soooo cute guess that would be my favorite they are all really neat!!

lisa808 said...

Well, I am anxious to see the new set. I would enjoy seeing samples made using the pumpkins, crafts, and doggies.

Patti P. said...

Hi Melanie, Love the wheelbarrow and would love to see the pumpkins, sunflowers and the kitties. Thanks for the chance to win and can't wait to see all of the release.
hugs...Patti

Darla Haverstock said...

Well, I have to say I'm excited to see it used with the Spring basket but since it IS September and not April I guess I'd like to see it used with the holiday basket set. :)

Sharon said...

I would love to see the Basket Addition with the pumpkins in the wheelbarrow. It would be so cute. Can't wait to see the entire set.

Cheryl W said...

I would really like to see you use the Spring Basket images and the Basket Buddies images. I think these would all look tremendous in that cute little wheelbarrow!

Patti J said...

Dear Santa, I want them all!!! Lol... Gosh, Melanie - if I really have to choose, I guess that my favorites would be the pumpkins in the very first set, the baby stuff in the next set, the skeleton is too much fun, eeks, gotta love those puppies, the poinsettias are lovely, the chicks have stolen my heart, tulips make me happy, and so do you! Thanks for the chance to win!

Mary Guikema said...

I love all the toppers, but my favorite is still the Basket Additions. I just seem to reach for that one for so many different reasons.

Sheri said...

I love to put the puppies and kittens in the basket for friends who have a new addition to their family. But the one I reach for the most is the original with those beautiful flowers. I have all of the basket additions now and love them. Made my halloween cards with them this year. I would love to see some birthday for men's things in the barrel or basket such as maybe fishing things. Otherwise I think you have it about covered with great ideas.

Anonymous said...

I continue to strive to perfect roses, so I vote for the roses in the Holiday Set.

Anonymous said...

My favourite is the Spring Basket. I am hoping one of your new sets focuses on Christmas.....Love all your work!
Pam Hartung

Andrene said...

Too many favorites to choose from!! So I narrowed it down to 4 :)
In light of the upcoming holiday season Santa from Basket Additions is a must. So are the Poinsettias from Holiday Basket. I would love to see what you do with the Tulips from the Spring set. And who doesnt love a cute baby card - so the Baby from Basket Additions 2. OK we cant leave the fall season out so (#5) Harvest from Basket Additions. (now I'm done!!!)

Judy I, St. Louis MO said...

Wow! what great choices. I think my favorite set is the holiday basket set. I can see the poinsettias in the wheelbarrow for Christmas. I love the sunflowers for fall themed cards and they would be perfect in the wheel barrow. I love the ruffle from Basket Blessings and the way it can be paper pieced with any DP. Wonder how it would work with the wheelbarrow.

Veronica Meischke said...

I love all of the designs but have my eyes on the puppies in the wheel barrow! Eagerly awaiting for you to choose! Just love your creations. God has certainly blessed you with talent.

Susan Sieracki said...

Melanie, you are really an inspiration to all of us. It is hard to pick a favorite. I am loving that wheel barrel and it's already on my list to buy without even seeing the rest of the stamps. My favorite topper is the bear/elephant/rabbit from Basket Blessings...would love to see that in the wheel barrel. Also, my new favorite is the skeleton/ghost/pumpkin from Basket Additions 3. I don't have it yet, but combined with the cauldron, it's the best Halloween card to send to my family this year! Good luck with the new release!

scrappinmommom said...

They are all special. I have several but I would love to see you using the fall with the pumpkin or the Christmas one. Can't wait for Thursday.

Brenda said...

My favorite toppers are the ones for all the different holidays and the flowers. I can't wait to see the rest of your new set and want to see what you create with it.

Marilyn said...

I love the toppers that are Fall related right now, and the Christmas ones as well. Such a great idea to use toppers! Can't wait for Thursday either

Cathy said...

My favorite toppers are the sunflowres and the kitties. So excited to see the rest. You do a wonderful job at coloring along with the creating of cards. Thanks for the chance to win.

Anonymous said...

I like a lot of them, but I especially like the pumpkins, sunflowers and any of the spring flowers. I think any of them would look great in that great wheelbarrow.

Sylvia said...

Melanie, I can see your dilemma. How to choose from all your lovely sets? But, like some that wheelbarrow is calling out to the sunflowers or the pumpkins. Maybe I'm partial right now to the fall. But in the spring time, I want to see those rabbits hop on to the wheelbarrow. Thanks for sharing your creativity and for the chance to win.

terriavidreader (IN-USA) said...

All those toppers are just great, my fav is the picnic one. Thanks for a chance to win!

Ravengirl said...

Oh Melanie! I think the gardening stuff from Basket Additions 2 is a very natural choice! I also think that puppies from basket buddies would be darling! Let's see that one!

Sherry said...

I really like the spring basket and the holiday basket.

Glitter Fantasies said...

Well I think basket additions is to cute...but spring basket is great!! However...basket buddies so adorable!!! Can you do a Shih Tzu?? they are so hard to find!!!

Hmm...basket additions 2 maybe???

I give up! Can't decide!
Thanks!
Jackie P

Olga said...

Of course all of your sets go perfectly to the new one!!!As I have only three of your sets - Holiday basket, Spring basket and Basket Blessings, I would love to see the projects using those sets. Besides I love flowers.
Then I'm thinking of getting Basket additions 2 which means projects with this set will be much appreciated ;)
Thank you for your wonderful work Melanie!

Carol said...

I would like to see how you use any of the animals...puppies, kittens, bunnies, or chicks. Love the wheelbarrow for more ways to use the additions .

Ok, I have to start over - do you mean which one would we like to see in the wheelbarrow? Any flowers or the pumpkins :)
If you mean which basket toppers we want to see you use over the next few months, well... I LOVE the baby ones - count me strange, but I love the bear/elephant/bunny one and any of the ones for little kids!

guilinger2 said...

right now, I would say it has to be the halloween guys from set 3. My 2nd choice would be sunflowers.

golightly said...

It is a tie between Spring Basket or Holiday Basket...I just love flowers :)

Anonymous said...

I would love to see either flowers or animals in it

Blessings,
Kat

Doris W. said...

I just recently bought your holiday basket and love it. How about a wheelbarrel of puppies.

Unknown said...

The puppies are my favorite, but fall is finally in the air so I vote for the Halloween trio (ghost, skeleton, and pumpkin). I love your your basket sets. I'm amazed what you continue to come up with.

Marcia said...

I love so many of your basket additions! When I saw the wheel barrow I immediately thought of the pumpkins and sunflowers. I also love the puppies! Can't wait to see rest of the set!

Betty Neville said...

I LOVE your flower toppers! So fabulous how versatile these sets are! Thank you for the chance to win!

Mary-Anne V said...

So many great toppers to choose from...i like the Basket Additions 2 (baby, beach and gardening images)and 3 (back to school and Dads images)the best. Thanks for the chance to win.

naneruth said...

Love them all so this is hard but I would love to see samples with the holiday basket. Of course who doesn't like a bunch of puppies so I'd like to see some puppies in the wheel borrow! Can't wait.

Deb said...

I think they are ALL great, but I especially like Basket Additions and Basket Additions 2 and OF COURSE I love flowers, so.... Holiday Basket and Spring Basket are a fav too

Susan said...

Love to see any of your flowers and love the stuffed animals

Sandy said...

Oh my...all those toppers...I must say BAsket Additions 2, although it was a toss up between that and the flowers. My heart melts for flowers:)

sandi said...

Basket Buddies with a child pushing the wheel barrow with the puppies inside or Basket Additions with the pumpkins and canning jars. Thanks for sharing all your creations with us.

Sherry said...

baskets and tables

Mary Guikema said...

I am hoping your container options include a cart of some sort or a shelf.

Rosie Espinoza said...

LOVE all you art Melanie!! i fell in love w/ the basket buddies & flowers(all of them!) i know everything u come up with...will be BEAUTIFUL! as every single design you create!! Blessings!

Joyce Evans Erb said...

My favorite is basket additions, a great topper would be electronics

Bunny said...

I love the Spring Baskets the best. They are all so nice. I was hoping for a baby carriage to put some of the items in................lol

Joyce said...

I just love Basket Buddies and Basket Blessings. They definitely have something for everyone and make me want to buy the basket set. LOL Ok, so I just went to the site and purchased them and Buds and Vases will probably be next.
