Gee I have never been first before!Hopefully it will bring me lots of luck!LOL> I joined your blog as a follower. I loved your chalk work and stamp used. I went and looked at the choices...all very hard to choose from!i had a tough time deciding between picturesque and serenity so I am going with picturesque because the saying I like better and the sea oats remind me of vacationing in S.C. at myrtle beach. Your chalking on this is lovely! Now I am going hopping some more.Thanks to all for the first hop! Congrats to all!Having fun!Hugs,Ina

The Serenity stamp gets my vote. Beautiful card.

It's hard to pick between Serenity and Picturesque. They are both so beautiful and bring up great memories when I lived on the beach for 17 years. ISC has outdone itself on both of these. If I am forced to choose, it's probably serenity, but then.....

Diana said...

I think I like the Hibiscus set. Love the flowers and the sayings. I'm waiting until the day I have some extra $$$ to order some new sets and I'd love to win a set. I've been a fan of your work since joining TJ's. Thanks for all you do.

I love the Picturesque, which you used beautifully. THanks for the chance at non fattening candy!

Sandy Hulsart said...

Oh, my gosh, I just love Picturesque, closely followed by Serenity. I love scenic stamping but your new stamps are a little world all of their own. Your sample is fabulous. Thanks for the chance to win some stamps.

Sandra said...

I love ALL of the ISC stamps - but from the new release if I have to pick one favorite, I would have to go with Australian Daisy - I love flowers!
Thanks for all the inspiration and fun!

I can't choose a favorite because I adore two of them. They are Serenity and Picturesque, they are both incredible! I do scene cards all of the time and I can't wait to buy them. Who knows maybe I'll win one. Thank you for the chance!

America said...

Oooh, such beautiful stamps and your card is great!

margaret said...

I enjoy the peacefulness of your ocean scene. It is very calming. I like that one the best but the daisy is a close second with me.

I like them all, however Australian Daisy is my favorite because I love flowers. Thanks for the chance to win.

ScrapinShana said...

They are all great sets, when I look at them I can picture the perfect card using each one. My favorite out of the new releases would be the Australian Daisy =)

Kathy Kelsheimer said...

How do I decide? They're all great and oh, the possibilities! Let's go with Serenity because who doesn't like "calm"?! Thanks for the chance to win. Your cards are amazing! shecop@charter.net

Stampin_melissa said...

Seriously how does one chose a favorite from these? Okay, I can narrow it down to TWO:
Picturesque and Serenity. They are serious breathtaking! Way to go Betsy! Your artwork using these two stamps is fabulous!

Boy it was hard to choose one. I would have to choose between flourishing ivy and Australian daisy. I think I like the Australian daisy best.

Those beach scenes have been so pretty. They look like rugged beaches, not the kind where thousands of people converge! Thanks for the opportunity to win some new toys.

Sandy said...

Wow, tough choice picking a favorite out of those. Love the beach scenes, but I see a lot of possiblity with the florishes or the daisy as well. I'll say it's the Australian Daisy plate.

Rockin Robin Caldwell said...

Grrrr.....I have to pick just one?? They are all very lovely. I guess, I would have to pick Picturesque then. But Serenity is also nice as is the ivy, and the Australian flowers. But, there is something very special about picturesque. Great job on the piece Lisa!!! Hisses, Rockin Robin Caldwell

christine m. said...

Wow, this new serenity stamp is awesome! I like the colors your have chosen - very serene indeed! Enjoyed your blog too, Lisa!

Janet S said...

I can't pick just one because the two that I like are so similar. I love Serenity and Picturesque. I would be happy to have either one. Thanks for a chance to win.

Julie said...

I have 2 favorites, although they are all great....My 2 favs are:
Picturesque
Australian Daisy

Thanks so much...great inspiration too....
Julie

Shelly Schmidt said...

I like all of the new releases- I have so many flowers already though....and a few of the flourishes too. I would have to pick either Serenity or Picturesque, and that is pretty hard...they are both lovely. I grew up with a river in my backyard, so always am drawn to water scenes- they are very calming- I can close my eyes and still hear the sound of the river flowing by........memories of my childhood. I love your card with the chalk technique Lisa.

I love your beach card. I have some new stamps SIMILAR to yours. Now I am in the mood to use them. I'm a little skiddish about making the background the right colors.

I am looking forward to building my scene.
