We've got one last lovely book to give away!

Anyone who knows me, knows I am a big fan of all things silly.  So, here is what we are lookin' for....what is the silliest or most random thing that you have ever stamped?  For me, that would be my bracelet that I wear every single day that says "don't stop 'till you get enough", my homage to Michael Jackson.

So what's yours?  Leave a comment below and on Monday, we will pull up the random number generator and pick a lucky winner. 

Have a fabulous weekend!!!

I haven't had much experience stamping on metal - JUST YET - but I think the most random think I would consider putting on jewelery is a "Zoie-ism". My daughter comes up with the most random, out-there statements. My favorite: "It's harassing my tongue!" Said because her loose tooth kept rubbing her tongue... A wonderful keepsake for a memory that can be passed down to her...and her children!

Istamped my own name over and over on hardware store washers when practicing. and threw them away- should have at least used them on luggage :)

I stamped my cheek to get back into the state fair? lol Not that kind of stamp huh?

Wireworked said...

Mine is a necklace I wear just about everyday. It's a brass square that has three circles and a blue flower revited to it. Each circle has a word I stamped on them, "Be Your Self".

Haven't done it yet, but I like the idea of "you're the one that I want" (from Grease) on pendants when stamping wedding dates and couples' names. The book looks great, btw.

I have a necklace that I wear quite often to remind myself and others to "B Cre 8 ive"

Be well!!!!

"Don't dream it. Be it." A quote from Rocky Horror Picture Show which is actually quite nice for every day.

Heidi Hiller said...

what if I am just starting and need to the book to know how to stamp before I get something silly created!!??? I've seriously just started and have only practiced stamping single letters on practive metal! I would love to win the book to know how to really do this right - it is such an awesome technique!

I love Beaducation. You all are great from ordering to lots of ideas and even helpful on the phone. We stamp alot of things from washers to baby silverware. One of my favorites was for a mother whose child was getting treatment for cancer and she wanted "Kisses 4 Kort". Just recently my daughter had a good line when her arms were to busy she said "I am hugging you in my mind". Thanks for all you do

I'm new at all this, but I did make a little pendent where I cut out a Scottie dog & stamped Mother/Fiona on the copper plate I riveted everything to. Fiona is my oldest dog who had puppies & has her one boy living here. She's sick right now, so I'm going to wear it until she is getting better.

You can stamp in a candle you know (at least here in this heat we can, lol).

Nickie said...

The most random thing I've stamped would have to be a quote from Shakespeare's 'King Lear': "Come not between the dragon and his wrath."

carrie said...

My copper cuff bracelet...it says "want fries with that?"

I manage a restaurant.

Well, I've never stamped anything, except putting postage on an envelope. Does that count? I'd sure love to win!

I'm just starting out as well and became a fan of your facebook page. I practiced a few favorite quotes on copper - "don't waste a minute not being happy" - "the best things in life are not things" - congrats & good luck with your book - hope I'm lucky!!

Lisa here, commenting for Susan. She submitted hers with a bad word that might get my mouth washed out with soap. We actually swear a lot here at Beaducation, but we will clean it up for you :)
Susan writes "ok, mine was a necklace that said "F_ _ K off I am knitting" or was it "Yarn Whore". Both pretty funny and I sold both of them right way!

Bob and Chris Elser said...

Most random stamping -- "Ow"

Allyson said...

Have only been stamping for about a year and not too many strange request have come across my bench block yet!! I absolutely love stamping, it is such therapy to me! One request was, however; one to live by..."be joyful always"

DebbieA said...

Okay--it's still around here somewhere...while Martha Stewart was in prison, I made and wore a silver bracelet with her prison number--55170-054. It was the least I could do in support AND in the form of a fashionable accessory! Ha!

redhedjny said...

Having just started stamping, I haven't stamped anything silly quite yet, although I suppose you could consider some of my practice pieces pretty silly-looking... *cough* I did, however, solder a smiley face together a few weeks ago, just to see if I could! I started with a one-inch round blank, made a wire smile, and then used a few melted blobs of silver (from projects that didn't quite make it, if you know what I mean!) for eyes and a nose. I even used a coil of wire for some goofy hair! He turned out to be pretty cute, in a whimsical sort of way. I smile every time I look at him!

I wore a ss ID bracelet with my name "Susan" everyday until, unbeknownst to me, it fell off & it was lost forever. That was 45 yrs ago & I still miss it to this day!

My favorite serious saying is "These are the Days" to remind me that I'm living the time I'll be reminiscing about in the future. I WISH I had thought of something our jeweler told us when we were buying my husband's wedding ring-- she had a customer have these words engraved in her husband-to-be's ring..."Put your ring back on."

Gail said...

Well, I haven't actually done anything yet because I'm just starting to get all the stuff I need. I would LOVE a book full of ideas and guidance! I'm a runner and my daughter is a dancer, so I'm hoping to do some sport-themed stuff.

Diana said...

Thanks for the opportunity to win your book! I've not done a whole lot of stamping in metal yet, but did one piece with just the word "Live" on it and lots of textures. It turned out pretty nicely. I think my next project will say "Art Slut"!

Just yesterday in fact, a dude from Massachusetts ordered a disk necklace from me. On the disk necklace was 3 disks.The first 2 disks had their existing kids names on them.. Grace and Leah. The third he wanted me to leave blank. He told me the night before, they got into a terrible argument, as she has been wanting to have a 3rd baby, and well, he doesn't. But after having a "come to Jesus" moment, he decided he wanted a 3rd child, and came up with the idea of giving her a disk necklace with that 3rd disk blank to tell her that he was onboard with the whole 3rd kid thing. I really almost shat my pants, because what dude thinks of this sort of thing??? I give him props... big kudos.... and gave him free shipping because of his awesomesauce-ness!! I've stamped so many random things tho'... A cuff that says "Bad Ass Bitch"... all the way to keychains that deceased people have been buried with that say "we will miss you grand dad".... I heart Beaducation!!

I think my silliest one was a pair of earrings for my friend. She's got twin boys, and I put A's initial on one earring, and K's on the other.

Anonymous said...

Well I stamped "Bite Me" on a circle. Some days you just feel like this!
Hope I win your book.

'Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble'.For anyone looking for trouble (of course stolen from one of the greatest writers).

angie said...

I haven't stamp anything more than 'Friends', 'Dream', and the like...because frankly I suck at stamping words! I'm more of a texturizing stamper. :)

Linda said...

My very favorite is "Creative and cute" but I haven't stamped all that much.

I'd love to win this book since I'm about to start stamping on other material than just nickel-free plates in a moth or so, it'd be a great help to me.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Heather M said...

I haven't stamped ANYTHING yet and I could really use this so I can get started. I've been wanting to start.

I think my first piece would be a necklace that said "Live Laugh Love" I love that saying and live by it!

I did a quilt show and did special quilt sayings and the most popular was( not sure if you need to edit this, go ahead if you need to! ) 'fabric whore.' Also popular was material girl.
Thanks for the chance!

I recently stamped 2 lockets with "Team Edward because...I like my men Cold, Hard and Sparkly -and- Team Jacob because... I like my men Big, Hot and Hairy.

sandi m said...

I've been boring so far - stamping tags with my initials to add to my designs. But I've got plans for doing more 'word' pieces. And your book will help me move forward!!

Little of This, Little of That said...

I haven't stamped metal, but I've stamped plenty of paper. Oh, and my kids for various reasons. Would LOVE to have this book!!

Sue said...

My stamping experience is limited, but dog tags are the most random. I'd love to win the book and get better ideas.

Karen said...

a dog tag that said "Silent One" for my son, a DJ.

Christy said...

Most random tag was "lost" I don't know if she was ever found!
