Hello Fellow Crafters! Are you already ready for our second round of fun with lil ol' me ;-) and stamp giveaway today? Yes, of course your are!

Rosette explained everything very nice yesterday in the first posting and you know by now that everyday from Monday through Friday the DT will be posting here and share information, make tutorials, give technique tips, show card samples with our wonderful stamps, even showcase some of your cards and last but not least stamp giveaways!

I called my post "Whatya love Wednesday" because I like to know what your favorite embellishments are when creating your card or paper project! So what is it that you love most to put on your cards and can't hardly do without it?

For the card I want to show you today I used the lovely Sister's stamp which I colored using my copics.



Aren't they just scrumptious standing there hand in hand? I really adore this image.



I have to say I love shine and glitter. And that is why I also looooove Stickles! That is something I use on almost every card and I got them all ...lol


I like to put them on the image (her shirt, belt buckle and the hair bows) as well as like to pimp other embellies with them. You can see there's some on the butterflies ...








and the flowers too! :-) I also LOVE using flowers on my cards and ribbon.



I can say my favorite embellishments are Stickles, Flowers and Ribbon!
I hope you like my card and how I present the Sisters stamp.

And just because Summer is offering a stamp giveaway every day this week!
So today you'll have the chance to win this beautiful Sisters cutie!





All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and tell me what your favorite embellishments are! It is that easy! :-) You'll have until midnight today (EST - Eastern Standard Time) to enter. I will update this posting and announce the randomly chosen winner early tomorrow morning (my time here / EST) right here on the very top of this post!

I hope you all will have a fantastic Wednesday and don't forget we want to see what you are creating with our cuties. So if you already finished a card or project using one of our stamps feel free to post a direct link right here on this blog in our comment sections so we all can come and see it!

  1. Good morning :-)
    I love the card... beautiful colors and very sweet image. And the Stickles add the perfect bit of prettyness.
    I always whished for a little sister... but I got a loud little brother *haha*... love him anyway ;o).
    On my projects I always use flowers made with my Retropunches, combined with paper-flowers and some Brads. And most the time I use three flowers. Don´t know where this came from.
    Have a nice day
    Hugs Kathi :-)

  4. Fab card. Boy aren't these stamps gorgeous. My favourite embellishment - well I guess it would have to be ribbons, and probably flowers. I just have to add these. It used to be 3 wee rhinestones in corners, but I have managed to get out of that. But I guess you do see them creep in sometimes. A gals gotta do what a galss gotta do eh.

  6. What a wonderful card... I think I like flowers most as embellishments, they are easy to make yourself and customize to the coloring of the card (paint samples ftw!)

  7. Whoa!1 This card is awesome Iris :)) I love the colours you used together :)
    I LOVE embellishing my cards.. they seem empty with out any.. especially when it comes to male cards!!lol

    I think the most thing I can't do without are flowers and dewdrops/rhinestones. They are almost a must with me :))

  8. Fabulous card and layout with the stitching. Wonderful coloring on the sweet image. I think my favorite embellie on cards is flowers, as I've got so many different types and I love to mix and match if I can, and of course adding leaves to the flowers really makes them stand out so well too.
    Thank you for the chance to win again.
    hugs

  18. I see some serious WOW Factor here Iris....
    You showed this TERRIFIC card beautifully. I love the stickles too. But even though I am not playing along I just thought I'd say that my favorite embellishment would have to be.....
    glitter. I used to go overboard, but not so much now... My friends used to call me the "Glitter Queen" LOL Thank God I grew out of that stage... But actually the one thing I ALWAYS do to my cards or projects is really NOT an embellisment but I can NOT live without some sort of drawn on stitching, still trying to master the actual sewing technique, but the stitching doodles... Yes that would be me! LOL

    Hugs,
    Lynda =)
