get CRAFTY. Riveting Giveaway Winner! (psst - and a new giveaway!)

~~ THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED ~~
~~ Please see this post to see who won ~~


Thank you to all who participated in our RIVETING giveaway. With all of the comments on the blog and Facebook shares, we had 285 entries. The lucky winner is:
Congratulations, Sylvia! Email us with your mailing address and we will get your riveting prize pack in the mail to you.

For those of you who did not win, we are keeping our selection of riveting tools and supplies at 20% off for another week. Go ahead and buy the basics to give this cold connection technique a try!

The fun is just beginning. It's only March 7, after all! We have another giveaway that will kick your stamping up a notch. Check out all these frames and blanks!


One lucky winner is going to get all of 'em -- that's 20 blanks and 20 frames -- as well as our DVD with a collection of four Stamping on Metal classes. This prize pack is worth over $130!

Everybody can always use more blanks, but what about these frames? We don't think people realize how neat these blank frames are. Here's why we love them so much:

  • Turn your blank into a pendant instantly. No hole punching. No jump rings!
  • No need to spend time finishing the edges. Just pop one of these frames on and you're good to go. They are held onto the blank with tabs. 
  • A frame gives an otherwise boring blank an elegant finished look, especially the ornate ones.
  • You're able to easily create a mixed metal pendant with a cold connection. 
  • People love our Soldered Rim Pendant class, and our smooth frames give the exact same look without having to fire up your torch. Now available in heart shapes, too! 
  • If you are allergic to brass or copper (which are less expensive metals), you can simply use a sterling silver frame and the blank will never touch your skin. 
You know you want to try them now, right?? Here's how to enter -- leave a comment on this blog letting us know what blank SHAPES are your favorites. Are there any we don't carry that you'd like to see? 

Since it's the second week, share the post on Facebook and we'll give you two extra entries! (Let us know here that you shared it and we'll add two additional entries to the spreadsheet.) 

Good luck, and keep on crafting!

My favorite blank so far is the heart washer. I just started stamping and love learning all the techniques.

Cassandra McRae said...

My favorite shape is the oval as it gives you just that bit more room than circles. I would love to see baby feet (both left & right joined at toes any heel) blanks. Shared on Facebook too xxx

Unknown said...

I really like the swirl because it's different and always a challenge. After that, I like the circle.

IT'S STAMP CITY AND I'M THE MAYOR!!

Annelle Fine said...

I love the round blanks but I also love square ones - they are so versatile and work especially well for just plain stamping, or even for embossing and etching designs. It is amazing how many things you can do with a simple piece of metal! (I shared your post on my Facebook, btw)

Angelsbythesea1127 said...

I love your jewelry making supplies. Love the blanks and it is something that I've been wanting to buy for the longest time and I'd love to start stamping the blanks. Please enter me in your contest. I am posting this to my facebook. Thanks for the chance to win some really cool stuff.....best I seen so far online. Adrienne

Alyson said...

I like the rectangles

Denise Martin said...

I really love the round blanks as they are so versatile, some designs don't work for an oval with portrait orientation, likewise landscape, but the circle ones are always fine.

Denise from Beaded Embellishments said...

I like both hearts and circles. Thanks for another giveaway!

Ellen1 said...

The heart blank with frame is so nice!! I remember when I placed my last order, you didn't have triangles (perhaps you were out of stock) but I love layering triangles over circles in different metals.

Amy Lynn said...

looove these, what a great way to make two tone pieces!

Sheri said...

Love love love the key shaped blank and the rectangle w the tube on top!!!

Linda Funk said...

I can't live without my circle layers. I love all the circles and making those beautiful layers with kids names. Love it all!

Ivy said...

Love these frames I have been looking at them for sometime. I shared this will all my Facebook friends.

Prudence said...

Love the circles and the dog bone shapes!

deenak said...

I like the simple circles the best I think. I love when two different metals are used together, like the copper and silver. I would love to see some funky stars or crosses and maybe squares.

Unknown said...

Round blanks are classic, but from all that you carry, I love the rounded squares the best.

Sam Davies said...

All are great, I really have found that they are hard to get where I live and would love to win have loads of ideas .

Unknown said...

I love the traditional round but I would love to see a square blank.

Pamela :)

Catisha Christy said...

I just got into stamping jewelry. Love Beaducation for blanks, they have the best prices around! I would like to see more options in square shapes :) This would be an awesome give-a-way to win! I shared on FB too!
(I thought I posted this yesterday, but I didn't see it today, so I hope I am not posting twice)

Marisa said...

Use a lot of different round blanks for many designs!

babykaycee said...

Heart shaped & the rectangular ones are always my fave! (:

danser said...

Love the frames! Great way to add another color and to jazz up a design easily!

LindaK said...

I love the hearts but use the rounds most of the time. In shared on Facebook also.

Belia1350 said...

I love the idea of placing a copper blank inside a silver frame for those that have trouble with copper.

Mica said...

My favorites are the traditional, but oh so versatile round blanks as well as the heart-shaped blanks. Crossing my fingers that I win, it would definitely give me a good excuse to invest in some soldering supplies.

Becco said...

Some of each style please....round, heart and would love some rectangles and squares as well!!! Muse a bit and the possibilities extrapolate...I am thinking family tree creation!!!

Olivia Ayala said...

I'm very new to hand stamping, but so far my favorite blanks are the round washers.

Jacki said...

I have always wanted to try these! I love Beaducation!!

I love the simple circles!! They are classic and elegant! This would be wonderful to win!! I shared this on Facebook as well ;)

Kristie Boman said...

OOooh... the edges on the round frames are just beautiful. I would have to say I like the heart frames the best, though. They are the perfect finishing touch. And BTW, I agree with Christine, who posted earlier about wishing for 1/2" copper cuff blanks. I think those would be wonderful!

Kristie Boman said...

Bonnie said...

I like the circles as there are endless possibilities for their use!

Ashley Hulme said...

Missing Ian said...

I'm just getting ready to launch my shop, so this would be a perfect thing to help get me started!!!!

Roberta said...

I love the new soldered pendants--they make my pieces more professional looking.

blakrie said...

I LOVE the frames. They add that finished look to any stamped blank. My favorite is the heart, wait....maybe the round ones. Honestly they are all my favorites! Hope I win!

I like the round blanks the best but also enjoy using the bird shaped ones.

Julie collins said...

Any unusual shape is great for me. I like to push the envelope with something whimsical.

I really like the frames. I haven't used them before, but have many ideas!

One Creative Queen said...

I'm torn. I love round and square. Ok, so I really love them all...but if I had to choose, round or square it would be. I love doing bold swirl designs on squares - I love the visual challenge it creates. I also like doing things with "corners" on round blanks. Not that I'm opposed to just stamping names on ANY shape! I'm so in love with cold connections and stamping (which I *just* started!), I can hardly contain myself. I think these are an awesome idea - having the frame as a separate piece removes the issue of the ridge of the frame cause problems because the blank won't lie flat. I want to go home in the pocket of whomever wins these...I would love to see what they create! Thank you for yet another great giveaway...Yay Beaducation!!

One Creative Queen said...

Oh - and this is SO on FB! :)

Mary Decker said...

I have never used anything like this. I did purchase a set of upper case alphabet tampers (don't know what to call them!)
And would love to begin designing them. Thank you very much. I'm posting on FB right now, I'm so excited!

Thank you.

Christie K said...

I didn't realize that is what the frames were for, but it makes sense and I LOVE THEM!!! Circles are my fav:)

Missing Ian said...

Great site!
I know that you said to comment on a shape but I just love the copper blanks. If i must pick a shape, I think it would be the copper "ribbon"!
Cool giveaway.

Teresa Mode said...

I like the circles. I would love to incorporate these into my jewelry designs.

I really love hearts and washers. Wishing for some heavier gauge blanks, as I love to stamp front and back. :)

I like circles best overall, but it totally depends on the project!

I just made a little pendant with a small rounded square and I love the look of it! I have it set as a diamond, and it looks great! :-)

Maneki said...

Great giveaway!

My favourite shapes are long and narrow oblongs and stretched out ovals, which are perfect to rivet or stitch onto cuffs (of leather, but also metal, fabric etc)or use as bracelet links. Smaller ones a perfect to fold into bails and large ones can be turned into finger rings.

Maneki said...

Don't have FB. Could a share on Pinterest count? http://pinterest.com/pin/109634572151172403/

The heart shapes are so cute - great for jewelry or embellishments in papercrafting

Whispering Metalworks said...

If we had an unlimited budget we would use every shape out there! Love them all! Our most used shape is the circle in assorted sizes and metals. My preference would have to the flower :) Shared on facebook too!!!! Now its time for me to place an order :)

christinaB said...
