Right now I find I'm using my Nestabilities on most cards. Love the ovals and the way they frame an image.

Favorite stamping technique... Well, I'd have to go with stamping an image and coloring it in with my new Copics! That's what I've been doing lately, the times I've actually been stamping!

At the moment I am trying to not only work on more scrapbook pages but also use acrylic paint on them, I love the splashy, brushy look on the backgrounds, (although I have not posted any of my creations, I guess part of my rejects pile)!
Thanks for the chance at some candy!
Congrats on the 15,000 hits!
Have a great weekend!

Currently I love doing "different style/size" of cards--not the regular 1/2 sheet folded in half. I long the square cards and the longer cards the best. I then enjoy trying different backgrounds on them. darlene l

New to me is heat embossing. Now that I have the proper tools (no more hair dryer) it makes my card look more polished and complete

Right now I'm loving my cuttlebug. I emboss, die cut with nestibilities, etc. I love this tool.Next, it's coloring with anything from pencils & gamsol, markers, watercolor. I feel like a kid again coloring. Thanks for the chance at such wonderful treats.

Thanks

Congrats on your hits even though I'm not surprised cause your blog is GREAT!!!!! Thanks at a chance to win!! Diane

Theresa said...

What a fun bunch of treats!!! You are so generous!!!
These days it seems to be a toss up between my Copics and my Ranger alcohol inks! They work hand in hand!
Thanks for sharing your wonderful blog!

i love multi folds and love the end result. very nice blog candy.

nettystamps said...

Very easy question for me....its now, was, and always will be embossing...and I am not really picky on what type. I love the embossing envelopes for the various machines just as much as I like the dry embossing...just not a particularly picky embosser...LOL
Thanks so much for the chance...the candy looks YUMMY. Congrats on the hits, you do wonderful work.

Linda SS said...

Dry embossing has always been my favorite technique. I love coloring with Prismacolors and gamsil now too, and I think it's starting to become my NEW favorite. You have a very nice blog!

IMkamperstampr said...

Fave Stamping Tech? I absolutely LOVE the flourishes that are so popular this year. Seems you can do so much with them. Love stamping them with a pretty color ink, then going over the lines with a quickie glue pen and sprinkling with transparent glitter.
Love you blog and visit it daily. Happy groundhog day to you and yours.

Lori said...

My favorite technique is currently anything to do with the Cuttlebug embossing folders and/or the Scor-Pal! Grats on 10,000 hits. And thank you for all of the wonderful artwork and ideas!!

Angel W said...

At the moment I am pretty much distressing all of my edges. This may be because I am just too cheap to buy new blades for my paper cutter. LOL

Belas Creating Place said...

How sweet is this Blog Candy and congrats to you.
I am making most of my cards and scrapbook layouts with handstamped backgrounds with a little distressing thrown here and there.
I have an album to complete by Monday afternoon for my nephew's girlfriend to take to him on Valentine's Day.
They are so sweet together.
Thanks for the opp...Bela

My goodness, it seems like you just started blogging....

My favorite overall is one I seldom do, but I think it's beautiful: the bargello technique.

my fav right now is my watercolor pencils. The gals at my SU workshops are having a blast when I bring them out. Feels like your back in Elementary.

I fall for almost any trend, so it's the new stamps from all the companies on SCS, the Copics, and the nesties..how's that for jumping on the bandwagon? LOL
