  1. I really like watercolouring, I need a LOT of practice but I enjoy it:) congrats on sooo many hits!


  2. Congratulations on reaching 10 000 hits.
    Just found you through SCS and love your blog.
    I have just recently bought a cuttlebug, so at the moment my favourite technique is dry embossing and experimenting with the different effects I can make.


  3. hi, hope I’m not too late!!!

    my fave. techniques are, well, too many to mention, actually, but at the moment, I’m loving using my Big Shot with loads of new embossing folders, and I’m just getting into all this Magnolia rubber stamping and watercolouring/pencil colouring!!


  4. I love playing with my spray mists … especially with embossed shipping tags.
    Thanks for the chance to win.


  5. Hello
    Sorry I have not posted before, I am one of your sbs18 sisters, not been around as tuesday was the anniversary of my mother’s death and I find it very hard. This was why our first challenge was a card for Mum.
    I really like your blog and your cards are superb.
    My favourite technique is watercolouring in pencil and then a waterwash to blend. I like backing in black and using papers. I do do quilling but have not got the time to do so at the moment.
    My favourite colours have to be lilac, but going alot in blue and white at the moment as they are my sisters favourite colours and she has placed an order for alot of cards with me as she and her friends are all 30 this year and she wants special cards for them all.
    Rabbling now….

  6. Your card is fabulous and so beautifully coloured, and that image is adorable!

    I don’t know if you would call it a technique, but I seem compelled to pierce on almost every card I make these days! I love 2 step stamping too. I’m a bit of a lazy stamper, so any technique that I have to get up and get something, is backburner stuff LOL! Thanks for the opportunity for the fab blog candy!


  7. Wow…what fun candy! I love to color, pierce and paper-piece (but I don’t do it as often as I should!). Cheers!


  8. Love your friendship card Deena! such a cute image and wonderfully colored!

    My favorite technique of the moment is die cutting with my nestabilities – there are so many ways to use all the shapes – layering, dry embossing –

    I also like the results you get with the wax paper resist technique.

    congrats on your hits!! I love visiting your blog to see what you’re up to and all the tidbits from other peoples blogs you let us know about!

    Great card! I’ve been doing more eyelets since I got my cropadile and still do a lot of heat embossing. I got a cuttlebug but only have the little folders. I need to get some big ones. Thanks for the chance to win.


  10. Erika M. says

    I think the card is beautiful. I’m totally digging pink and brown for some reason.


  11. Mandiannie says

    Aww that card is totally adorable! Love those cute critters that are featured on it.


  12. Deena,

    What fun creative candy!

    Lately I have really been into water coloring and paper piecing!

    My favorite color combo is PTI Lemon Tart and SU Blue Bayou! I love anything with Blue Bayou!


  13. Congratulations on the hits! As a beginning stamper I don’t know so many techniques, but I do like heat embossing!

  30. Love the card – and the candy!! I am not too much a technique junkie..I am more into color combos. I would have to say black and white with a pop of a bright color would be one of my favorites. I am also partial to blue and orange!!



  31. love the card for our challenge 🙂

    hmm i like any technique that i haven’t tried before, my favourite are outside of my comfort zone…like the chipboard work i’ve done and the clock i’m just starting to make… engineering student so i have to pull things apart lol…. fave colour combo is the classy black n white, which is what my bedroom is going to be and what the clock will be to go in the bedroom 🙂


  32. Very cute card Deena! My favorite technique is embossing with my Cuttlebug, may it be embossing folders or Nestabilities, I’m happy with both of them. For my favorite color combo I’m picking brown with pink right now..Later, Kathy Hering…


  33. J’aime beaucoup votre carte, elle est trés jolie.
    Le tampon est magnifique.


  34. What a beautiful card and such a great stamp – love the colours, thank you for visiting my blog



  35. Hey D. Love the new card – the sentiment is a perfect touch.

    My fav. color combos – wow – pale and perfect plum, blue bayou and soft sky, river rock with pretty much anything.

    My fav. technique is stamping and finding a place to put some razzle dazzle. A card isn’t complete without some dd!!


  36. Wow Deena your card is lovely, the image is so cute and your offering blog candy, cool lol. Well my favorite technique would have to be stamping, i just love colouring in and my fav colour is usually purple but i love all the bright primary colours too. x


  37. Miss Apple says

    Deena, this is such a lovely card. Very nice image. Your coloring is wonderful – specially on that waterpot. Beautiful!


  38. Cute card. And I can’t believe that no one else as commented for creative blog candy. So I will be the first Sister 18 to. I really like stamp resist right now. My fave color combo is anything blue, anything green with a splash of something. Welcome to the sisterhood by the way.
