I love using silver and the brass as they two metals I'm familiar with 'antiquing' or giving a patina to. I'd love to win these blanks as I have many friends and family members who'd benefit from Gifties with this prize. Thank you for considering my post.

Laurie Barnes said...

Since I am still a beginner I enjoy working with the aluminum circles. :)

Jamie said...

Copper is my favorite! Using it to learn enameling right now but I love to stamp on it! Would love, love, LOVE to have this prize!!

Mrs. Biggs said...

Love working with silver filled since I'm a newbie and a little nervous about sterling! Can't wait to try out some copper!

Autumn Hembree said...

I use brass and copper rectangles the most because they are so versatile, simple and can be used for everything:)))

Blake, Carrie and Taylor said...

I love using copper blanks to try an idea out on & then do the final piece in silver. I am a blank addict because I love to buy them just to look at them!!

raina_franco said...

I love using the aluminum blanks since I'm still new at this :)

Mandy Capraun said...

I love using any and all blanks! They are so much fun!!!! ♥

Catherine said...

As far as metal, I love silver and gold. My favorite shape would be anything with a rim because they are simple, but the edge adds a unique touch.

Polly Spencer said...

I just got great enamel colors and am excited about creating new jewelry. I love working with copper and these blanks would give me the opportunity to try out my new skill!

Doris Wong said...

I like working with sterling silver blanks. They're harder to make deep impressions, but there's no fear of accidentally misshaping them. But I also love the color of copper.

Vicky Siegel said...

I lOvE the long silver rectangles for necklaces and bracelets.

Cindy Martin-Shaw said...

I am partial to copper and brass right now because they look so beautiful antiqued. All of these shapes are so cool. I am drooling thinking of this giveaway. :)

Deborah said...

I work with a variety of metals - precious and base, as well as found "what is this?" and love them all.

It is hard to beat the versatility and "forgiveness" of copper, though - from simple shaping and coloring to forging and enameling, it will reinvent itself as many times as you ask/need it to!

So, I'd be THRILLED to win this terrific bonanza of mixed metals (and of course, with the price of silver these days, I'd be ECSTATIC to have some included) - thank you SO much for this giveaway!

KrazyPatch said...

I am really excited about this giveaway. Your blanks are so beautiful and such high quality.

MommaM said...

I love the aluminum blanks! They are inexpensive, and easy to stamp and look so pretty. I also love that they don't tarnish!

A sterling ring

I enjoy working with all blanks. I will be ordering more soon. Would love to win these!

Kelli said...

I love copper and sterling silver! And brass and aluminum and everything possible and pretty much any shape I can find:)

Teresa Smith said...

I usually use the nickel silver circles. I love to stamp along the bottom (words, names, etc) and then add a charm at the top for a pretty, affordable necklace :)

leslie benton said...

I have two I love copper and brass. I have no rhyme or reason why I like them best. They just look so nice together.

April Bagwell said...

I love all the metals but I think the flower shapes are the cutest.

Julie Jenkins said...

I really use a lot of aluminum stamps. They are easy to stamp and the price is great. I'm a beginner and I don't freak out about messing up on a .75 blank.

Saturdays-child said...

I like the silver filled and pewter blanks best, but the others have their uses, too!

JaustalikePasta said...

I love working with mainly sterling silver blanks! They are beautiful and great Quality! So excited for the opportunity to win! Thank you.

Jennifer Colgan said...

I love sterling silver, and the circles give me the most options for different creations.

Leah said...

I'm new at working with blanks. Can't wait to do more!!!

Bogie said...

I like copper blanks and seeing the designs pop after oxidizing and polishing is so rewarding. I'd like to have more experience with sterling silver & aluminum.

Amanda Sliwoski said...

I love working with sterling and aluminum, but I'd love to try out some other metals!

Delena Ciastko Designs said...

I love working with sterling. My favorites are the washers.

crystal_phoenix said...

I haven't gotten into stamping and blanks, but I think I would start with the Aluminum Circle blanks. They seem easy to work with.

Dale said...

I haven't used any real blanks yet as I'm very new to stamping. I've only practiced on tin can covers. Winning this giveaway would help me decide which blanks I like best!

Fallen said...

i'm still new, but I like the silver and brass

Alexlovestoshoot said...

I love your sterling silver and aluminum blanks-- they are the best!! I also like working with copper. Each metal has a different feel and all are so neat!

mel1113 said...

I love the sterling silver because of the finish

Jessalynn said...

My favs are sterling and copper! I love mixing metals!

dinasoots said...

I like to use copper and silver plated round blanks, because its thin enough, so letters come out clean and design looks pretty:)

Carrie Wondrash said...

I love soft strike pewter. Stamps leave a beautiful impression with hardly a tap from the hammer!

Angela said...

Aluminum dog tags are the best! :)

Kelly Maron said...

My favorite blanks are the Aluminum Michigan's. They're great for both being proud of this state and they're amazing for Michigan State University spirit.

Rogue Perfumer said...

Oh gee, I left a comment earlier, but this site didn't take it? . . ???

Rogue Perfumer said...

I love Silver and Pewter because they are so fluid and forgiving. Although, I am attracted to bright and shiny Copper! Thank you for this opportunity. Aloha, :)

StacyMoss said...

The heart my favorite because you can make it symmetrical or you can make it not symmetrical and it would still be a pretty blank to use.

Lianna Padilla said...

I love the silver filled as I just started, but have recently been trying the sterling silver which I am starting to love just as much!

Emma Louise Farbrother said...

I love love love the look of copper, it really floats my boat! But I'm a sucker for the durability and the awesomeness that is Sterling. This is a great prize, this would be just enough to push me to be able to open my etsy shop. Good luck everyone!

GardenGirl09 said...

I love love love sterling silver! It shines up so beautifully and looks so pretty!!!

Jenn Ludewig said...

I love working with 22 gauge small round silver blanks, I just love anything in a pie shape.. lol

Enchanting Accents said...

I love using all different types of metals because of the diversity they give to each piece of jewelry. You can take a metal like copper and have it stand alone and be more relaxed or add some sterling silver or fine silver to it and have a dressier piece. I love how metals can be mixed with each other and made into beautiful artistry.

Sarah Moffitt said...

While I love all of the different types of metals Beaducation offers, nickel is my go-to metal of choice - it stamps easily, polishes beautifully, and is cost-effective. Before finding Beaducation's metal blanks I had tried blanks from many other vendors, and nothing compares to the quality of Beaducation's products!! Love it!

Anne VanLoon said...

I love the copper blanks for enameling! I haven't had the chance to try any other metals yet!

Ashley Taylor said...

I'm just getting into it but aluminum is what I have mainly used. But I'll use any blank.

Ava Gavloski said...

The heart, square and beveal circle pendant shapes are my favorite. cottagerca@yahoo.ca

christie sprague said...

The states are my favorite, they're super cute!! Christie.sprague@gmail.com

Pam Pensiero said...

My favorite blank is the Pewter 1" Circle with Top Loop. I like how easy the metal is to stamp on. I love how it looks when stamped, and especially like that there is a loop for easy jump ring attaching.

Susan said...

I love working with copper because I like the patinas I can put on it!

Angie said...

THe aluminum washers are my favourite for making name necklaces with birthstones. :)

KalicoKat said...

Copper is my favorite although aluminum is cool too. Just need to learn to not hit it as hard. :-)

Momma "Tee" said...

I love anything copper! I love it shiny, oxidized, smooth, hammered... Any copper, any way! :)

Dotty said...

I love copper blanks, especially hearts and butterflies. They seem to speak to me more than other shapes, but I would love to have all shapes and types of metal. I am fairly new to this and I need all the practice I can get.

A. Gross said...

I'm still new but I love working with copper and sterling silver.

Unknown said...

I like to work with Aluminum because I'm still new and and haven't ventured far into other metals yet.

Leeanna Prejean said...

Pewter and sterling! Aluminum for new ideas and to get use to new design and letter stamps.

Christine said...

My favorite ones to work with are the copper circles, so very versatile!

s goemaat said...

Love the mixed metals, and love working with blanks!
You have a nice variety available, endless possibilities!

Dianne Mozzetti said...

I love working with Silver filled and brass as well as copper of any kind of blanks. I think they all compliment each well no matter how you use them. I'm still learning but I'm having so much fun with it!

Holly said...

I have never actually used a blank before! I am a student at my local community college and we have to cut all of our shapes out with a jewelry saw. It would be lovely to eliminate that step for a change of pace!

Olivia said...

I love using aluminum blanks, specifically the state blanks and the banner blanks recently! They make such cute necklaces when stamped with fun phrases or meaningful symbols :)

s goemaat said...

I feel the same Olivia, it gives an opportunity to be creative!
