  6. Thanks for the great video, love this card and how you incorporated your favorite things into the video. My favorite thing? Just one? That is just too hard, but I can narrow it down to a couple. I love, love, love Versa Fine Onyx Black ink, gives such a nice crisp image, my other favorite is my water color crayons by LYRA, absolutely use them more than any other medium for coloring.

  7. i lvoe the card and the stitched sentiment and how you used all your favorite things to make a card, at this time of year, lots of these videos come up, but yours is the most entertaining (so far) I get a little disheartened by all those products I don't have but your video was fun!

  42. Wonderful card and what a list! I'd have a tough time narrowing down to a skim basics of favorites :-D AND asking what my favorite is....not easy, I can give A favorite (one of many...lol).....foam tape. I use it on just about every card I make ♥

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hi I'm new to this, but here goes. What do I use to get my craft on? Well I must admit that my fave is glitter paper as well. Somehow it is just a good card, but when I get the glitter paper out it turns into a fantastic card. I also love my tweezers too. They come in handy to do that intricate placing. I have short fingers, and my tweezer are a big help when placing sequins and other small objects on my creations. I've only just started using the embossing products, and with more practice I hope to love using them. Right now they make me sort of nervous. I will keep trying I promise.
    Thanks for your wonderful tutorials. Easy to understand. Happy Holidays.

  46. Thanks so much for compiling this list.. they are very helpful... The tool that I use most to get my craft on is my TIM HOLTZ vagabond.. it was a splurge that my hubby gave me for my Birthday one year. I use dies to cut my card stock panels that I create my cards with. It is usually the first thing I do.. I have a crank one just incase we loose power, LOL, I can still craft by candle light. Thanks for the chance to win.

  67. FABULOUS favourites Carissa!!!
    WOW - there are LOTS of CREATIVE ESSENTIALS on your list that I hope to add to my stash, especially the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers ... I really want to focus on my colouring skills, so a set of these are on the top of my wishlist. My favourite tool, that is part of each and every project I create is my self healing craft mat, I use the top surface for cutting, use the grid aligning and the reverse side when I'm working with liquid adhesives ... it's not a pretty sight but boy, is it AWESOME. It is a green Fiskars one, many years old, never found one made from the same material since I fell in love with this one, so I treasure it all the more.
    LOVE your card, the recipient will ADORE the SPARKLE and MAGNIFICENT mondo magnolia!!!
    THANK YOU for sharing your favourites with links and for the chance to win too :)
