My favorite stamping things....um, all of them? :) Seriously though, right now I love my super cheap (but works great) sewing machine, bling, pearl bling (K&Co.), any ribbon, patterned paper, and blogs for inspiration. There's probably more, but I'm too tired to think of it all!

Well, right now I'm getting back into stamping and card making. I "just" got my cuttlebug yesterday and I'm hoping it's going to be one of my favorite things! Love my PP too and Cat's Eye Chalk ink! Congrats on 10K! Thanks!

Linda said...

Hands down my favorite two things are my cuttlebug and bling. The cuttlebug is the best embellishment for a card that needs a little something extra. Congratulations on 10,000 hits! That's awesome!

Becky said...

I really do not think I could live without my scissors. They are probably my favorite tool. I love to use watercolors and mixed mediums. I love to look through my house and find items that would look good on cards. I made a card with the label from a vegtable can and incldued a recipe for that vegetable.

It is so nice of you to offer such wonderful gifts.

I am so obsessed with everything stamping and scrapping. Right now I can't seem to get enough designer paper. Not sure what I will do with it... but just love hoarding it! Congrats on your blog and thanks for the generous give-away!!

Linda SS said...

My favorite technique is dry embossing so I really love my light box. My Cuttlebug with the embossing folders is a lot of fun too, but I have more fun using brass stencils and doing them by hand. I'd definitely chose the light box and Cuttlebug as my favorite toys:)

Melissa M. M. M. said...

My favourite technique is doing emboss resist with a glue pen. You can get all kinds of intricate detail with it. Fun! :0) Thanks so much for a chance to win blog candy. Here's a link to my tutorial for glue-pen emboss resist in case you're curious :0) Mel:

Hi there,
My favorite tool is my embossing buddy. Before I got that little puppy I had embossing powder everywhere on my cards. It's impossible to get it all off!

Linsey said...

Well, what a load of fun! Your blog is totally awesome! I love all aspects of stamping so much, it's hard to choose a favorite. I LOVE coloring, it's the original reason I started playing with stamps! It's so soothing. I enjoy creating scenes on my cards, using a variety of chalks, inks, and sponging techniques. My cards usually end up shabby chic because I don't get caught up with perfection--if I make a mistake, I try to make it work somehow rather than start again from scratch. I love my new crop-a-dile and my Cuttlebug is on its way, so I'm sure that will top my list too! Other great stuff I love to play with: stickles, bling anything!, rub-ons, eyelets and brads, fabric and sewing. thanks again!

I love ribbon of all kinds and my cuttlebug of course! After being away from stamping for awhile I find I have no new punches and very few non-retired sets! (I am a newer demo!) So, I am also in love with punches (got 2 with my last order and ordering 2 more tomorrow!)
