More Blog Candy, 10,000+ Hits!!!

Thanks to all of you who stop by to view my blog. I hope you're enjoying it. If there's something you'd like to see on here please let me know and I'll do my best to see if I can accommodate you.

Ok, the purpose of this post is to let you know there is another giveaway! Yup, because of all of you my blog went over the 10,000 hits mark this past weekend. So to commemorate the occasion I'm giving away this little red mail box (from Target) plus 8 bundles of ribbons! In your comment entry tell me what your favorite stamping technique is. Mine is very simple. I like sponging. It adds a lot to a card without taking a lot of time. And I don't just mean sponging the edges, this includes sponging on top of the card. Some cards need just a little something and that soft splash of color a sponge can add, in many cases does the trick! So, now it's your turn!

Please enter your comment to this post only. Names will be drawn from the list of comments. I will draw a name in the afternoon on Saturday the 17th!

Lets see, my fave technique for the cards I make is probably......tearing. I love to tear the edges for the "Shabby Look"

Pat said...

Such a great Candy Blog. My favorite technique would have to be embossing...I was scared to try it and once I did....love it!

Allison Rankin said...

Hmm...I guess right now I would have to say gamsol and prismacolors. TFS!

Carmen said...

I like the rock and roll technique - it is great for flowered stamps!

Although I don't do it a lot, my favorite technique is paper piecing. Great give-away! My Target doesn't have these cute little mailboxes.

Rosella said...

What great gift! I would love to have one of these absolutely adorable mailboxes. Unfortunately we can't get them in Canada.
I agree with you, sponging gives the extra special something to your project. Love it. And I love your blog. Will be back!

Oooh blog candy, fabulous

My favourite technique is watercolouring, I just love it, I love it so much I have just ordered some Prismacolour pencils, won't be telling my husband that though, and will be going to my local art shop to see if I can find the equivalent to Gamsol!!!

Leah said...

oh gosh... just one favorite technique? LOL! I have been into masking lately... I like the dimension it gives to my images! :) Congrats on your hits!

Melissa Norris said...

Well I think one of my favorites at the moment would just be using versamark. I love the watermark look.

Barb said...

My favorite technique is coloring with Prismacolor pencils. Love the results!

Nancy said...

My favourite thing to do on cards is simply layering.... adding punches of colour with different layers of papers.

Cindy @ Creating at Home said...

ohhh nice blog candy! My favorite technique is dtp... rubbing ink directly along the edge of the card stock. I do this on pretty well every card I make. It's a quick easy way to add a bit of a border.

Dina Kowal Creative said...

Seems like I can't make a card now without having some kind of background image stamped on the base layer. :) Not sure if that's a technique or not...

Kim said...

Do I have to pick just one?? :-) I'd have to say that my most recent favorite technique, if this can be considered a real technique, is doodling! Like sponging, doodling a squiggly line around the edges of a main image really does add that little something extra without going overboard. I love it!

Crystal said...

I love masking!

Susan C said...

For stamping, I'd say my favorite technique is to use versamark. Love using it for a watermark effect.
For cardmaking in general, I love the slider dies I just bought for my Cuttlebug.

I really like using the paper piercing kit! Adds a little texture...no mess!

Kraftin' Kimmie said...

I LOVE sponging too! It adds so much depth to an image or card! I also love doodling right now. Just getting used to doing that but when you get it right, it looks awesome!!!

Creative Expressions by Stephanie said...

Hi Wanda.

I would have to agree with you and say that my favorite technique is sponging. It is so simple and takes no time at all. What a wonderful giveway; thank you so much and congrats on 10,000 hits. Hope you are having a great week.

Dale Anne Potter said...

GREAT lollipop card!!!

Lindy Stamper said...

awesome, can't wait!!!

My fav. technique, Versamark and Chalk. :)

Susan (susiestampalot) said...

Hmmm...like you, i love to sponge edges for contrast. but then also, i love using dimensionals to make different layers and making things "POP"!

scrappinmomof3 said...

I recently did a card using josephs coat and absolutley loved it. I am also really into tearing most of my cards are torn. the plus side of this my daughter loves to help me:)

Jan Scholl said...

Right now my favorite anything is either to distress with ink or to glitter stuff up. My daughter says I do those too much and my niece asks me if I like to do those things-and when I say yes, she smiles and nods her head. She is 10 and loves to stamp and create and I always get her opinion. If something is ugly, she tells me honestly. I hope she never changes!

crazy4mycrafts said...

Definitely Gamsol and Prismacolor pencils!! I'm a bit of a brad and ribbon freak too!

Susan said...

Mine has to be KISSING...and it's Valentines Day so why not. It's a technique I've just recently really learned the knack for.

Jana Weaver said...

I have recently come to appreciate sponging more, but my favorite technique has to be 2-step stamping! It's such a quick easy way to get a multicolored image that looks awesome!

Great Candy!! Thanks.

Jeff AND DeAnna said...

Oh that's a tough question. I'll go with tearing. I love the look of a torn edge on my cards!

Thanks for the chance to enter your give-away!

Happy Valentines day!
DeAnna

alison said...

I'd have to say my favorite technique is rock and roll. I love the look it makes.

Michelle Tweedy said...

My current favorite technique is Paper Piercing. I'm loving the subtle detail it gives to a card. Love your blog!

Heidi said...

It's way too hard to pick one favorite but the one I always come back to is DTP. I can't help but ink the edges on most of my projects. You know you've got a problem when your 4 year old daughter is dragging her cards through the ink pad just like mommy!

Love the blog candy by the way! That ribbon looks awesome!

Lois H said...

Currently I'm loving faux stitching! Lois H

Heather Leech said...

Thanks!!

Kelly said...

My favorite technique would have to be prisma pencils and Gamasol i love the finished result. Happy Valentine's Day!

Unknown said...

I think I'd say, watercoloring. I'm not very good at it but I love the look!

asnow said...

I love watercolouring - it just adds so much to a card.

Alison

sdaly said...

My favorite technique is watercoloring --- I love the dimension that can be created with color. I also like layering paper --- no layer card are very hard for me!

Wackie said...

I love the cuttlebug now for embossing and I love layering and any embellishments, but especially ribbons and brads. I am a ribbon-aholic and can't tell you how much I have. I think I have to hoard it instead of using it. Love your blog.
Jackie

Erica said...

My favorite technique is embossing and beaching... congratulations on all the posts TFS

Linda Yamakido said...

I love chalk,,,

Lilian said...

my favorite technique would be--- glitter! =)

bethtrue said...

let's see... my favorite technique right now is edge distressing with my Making Memories edge distressor. :-)

~Lana B.~ said...

Hmmm...tough question. Although I do love watercoloring I pretty much stink at it in my opinion. lol I also am loving just the simple one layer cards I'm seeing everywhere now...especially on my fabriano notecards!
~Lana B.~

Unknown said...

I would have to save my favorite technique is also sponging. Sometimes I think I might sponge too much! I am also obsesed with ribbon lately :-)

Renée said...

My favorite technique is also sponging...I tend to sponge every card I make- it's a struggle not to! Happy VDay!
Renée

Sus said...

My favorite technique is masking... a little time consuming to cut out the images, but well worth it!!!

safaricat said...

Congratulations on your 10,000 hits! I enjoy reading your blog and like your ideas. Ok let's see my favorite technique would be embossing. I think I pretty much use that in all of my projects, but then again I love inking too! Can I have two favorites?

Anonymous said...

It's to hard to pick a favorite technique, so I'd have to go with the current, which is the Cuttlebug! Love the look! Love blog candy & RIBBON!!
Ilene

Renee V. said...

Wow, fun blog candy! This is so nice of you!
So many techniques and I can only pick one. Hmmm...that would have to be Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Although, I love using my Sukura stardust gel pen whenever I get the chance too!
Rubber Hugs,
Renee V.

My first and favorite technique is putting ink on paper using stamps. I know you didn't want to hear that, but stamping is nothing without putting ink on paper.

Vickie Daniel said...

Right now my favorite technique is Polished Stone. I was afraid of this technique for a long time. It looked too hard. I tried it and the rest is history. You can make so many wonderful combinations!

Me said...

My favourite technique at the moment is using Versemark on Glossy paper and then brushing pastel chalk with a cotton ball. I love adding the different colours to get the mesh!
