We're challenging YOU!

I am so happy to be sharing here on the Tanner Bell Designs blog today.
Really excited because we are going to have lots of fun with a great contest.

Not only could you WIN the FEATURED STAMP SET
but you could also be a GUEST DESIGNER for Tanner Bell Designs!

When it comes to sentiments, you get the most 'bang for your buck' when you
think outside the design box with your sentiments.
Although this card is pretty specific, I hope as you check out the stamp set itself
you will begin to see ALL the possibilities.

I don't know about you, but I never have enough sentiments in my stamping stash and there's nothing
like having great 'go-to' sets, so I was thrilled when TBD released 'It's a Baby'.

I have lots of elements going on for this card and I love that the sentiments work so well for the theme.

I just love this 'tweet' little birdie from the 'Feathered Friends' Stickerz set
from EAD Designs and thought it was a perfect 
centerpiece for everything around it.
The papers, fabric butterflies & 'logs' are from Heidi Grace
the clouds are my favorite dies by Lil' Inker Designs and the

of course, my very sweet sentiments are from Tanner Bell Designs

It's time to 'think outside the design box' and have a little fun!

Tanner Bell Designs is giving away today's featured set

Leave a comment and let us know the most unique 'theme' for
a card you can come up with and which sentiment from this
set you would use for your card.

If your idea is chosen as the winning idea, we will send you
the set & invite you to be a guest designer using your idea!

For instance, 'Special Delivery' could be used to
congratulate your child on that new paper route he just got!

You are welcome to enter as many times as you'd like, but please
enter just one at a time per comment.
The deadline to be eligible to win is 11:59 EDT, Friday, August 10th.

We'll announce the winner here on our blog on Monday, August 13th.

We hope you have fun with this.  We're looking forward to your
very creative ideas!


  1. I would use the What an AWESOME Baby stamp for a fun card for someone who just got a new pet! I have two awesome babies, myself! Both are labs. Just say'n. LOL!

  2. I would use "bundle of joy" with money and "congratulations" for a card to celebrate a new job. What a cute stamp set!

  3. I would use the your wish came true sentiment for someone that passed a class or test that they didn't think they were going to pass. As you probably guessed I am a college student lol I love the stamp set.

  4. I would use a school theme and have a Kindergarten or Preschool teacher have cards for her new students using the "Welcome Little One". Thanks for the fun challenge, Hugz, Kim

  5. I would have an adoption theme and make a special card for someone that recently adopted a child and use the "special delivery" sentiment. Hugz, Kim

  6. How about a graduation theme for anyone that accomplished their dream and of course I would use "congratulations" and "your wish came true".

  7. I would use the "Congratulations" for an Anniversary card, and "Your Wish Came True" for a Wedding Card.

  8. Sweet could be used for a card with either a chocolate or lollipop theme; Wish Came True for a wedding or even an amazing travel adventure you've waited for!!

  9. I would use the "New Arrival" stamp for a tag on a new product in a store. I really like the card Julie made! Thank for the chance to win and the FUN challenge!

  10. I can see several Christmas cards made with these. You could use the "bundle of joy" and make a bundle of stamped or die cut joys out of Christmas paper/presents. The other would be to make a button snowman and use the "cute as a button" stamp. There are a couple of others that would work too, great set!

    1. I love your snowman idea Lynn :-)

  11. I am thinking ahead to my anniversary and am gonna make my hubby a card using the "your wish came true" sentiment on the outside (the day I married you, on the inside)...thank you Tanner for another AMAZING stamp set & the chance to win it!!

  12. My niece and her family just moved back to WA State from AZ and I would use "New Arrival" and "Your Wish came True" for a card for her 5 year old daughter who loves to get mail and is so sad that she hasn't gotten a card at her "new" address, yet. (the 5 yr old wanted to live closer to her grandparents)

  13. Your wish came true and Congratulations can be used for major milestones achieved in someone's life!! Not just for having a baby - but the dream home, the dream job, a goal achieved, etc.

    New Arrival could also be to welcome a brand new co-worker to a new job to welcome them to the company as a "new arrival".

  14. I have a picture of my husband holding a puppy of ours that was only a few days old wrapped in a blanket like a baby and I would use the sweet baby and bundle of joy stamps on a layout with that picture. :)

  15. I would use 100% sweet and special delivery on some sweet treats. Cookies....bars....etc.

  16. I would use 100% Sweet on the cards that I put in the kid's lunch boxes, attached to their sweet treat. Kids love getting messages in their lunch box!

  17. I would make a wedding card with Cinderella and Prince Charming using "Your Wish Came True" stamp.

  18. I would make a cute pink or blue button tree using "Cute as a Button" stamp.

  19. I would make a tag or a card with "special delivery" and "100% Sweet" to go on a basket of goodies that you're giving as a gift.

  20. Now this isn't necessarily thinking outside the box as far as it not being a baby card, but I would make a card (for a baby shower or congrats on the new baby) using almost that whole stamp set to make a background. With all the different fonts it would be sooo fun to collect them all on a block and make a background!

  21. I would use the name/date/time/weight stamp on a card celebrating a huge weight loss and the your wish came true stamp on the inside..this is a personal one for me as my hubby and I are beginning a weight loss journey together and this is what I would use on his goal weight card :)
