Dottie, please send me your snail mail address at rrz6698@yahoo.com so that I may ship your goodies to you!
Thanks for playing everyone!



For my Blog Candy, you get everything you see in the picture. Karen Foster Mini Casual 1/8 inch Snap Stamps, Decorative (self adhesive) pearls, Amuse Creative Candy Twinkle Stickers (micro dot), and May Arts Polka Dot Ribbon in the colors you see (1 yard each).

I will be drawing the winner on Friday evening at 6:00 eastern using random.org. Just leave a comment below, to tell me your favorite embellishment. Thanks for playing!

Here's a simple card made with an Arturo Note Card from Ellen's store. The Stampendous Agapanthus Cluster is embossed with White Detail embossing powder. I used Fancy Flexible Phrases for the sentiment, and a small piece of ribbon from Jacksonbelle Embellishments as an accent . The sentiment and sponged edges are SU Bashful Blue.

Thanks for looking!

Stamps: Agapanthus Cluster, Fancy Flexible Phrases
Card Stock: Arturo Note Card in Pale Blue
Ink: VersaMark, Bashful Blue

Hi great blog candy. My favorite embellishment must be brads - I use them soooo often in my card.

I really enjoy checking out your blog regularly! I have many favs- but right now my favorite embellishment is ribbon. I use it on nearly every card I make - not complete without it!
Thanks for sharing.

doverdi said...

Wow...what an awesome selection of blog candy. I guess that I would have to say that my favorite embellishment is ribbon. I tend to use it on most of my cards and love the way that it adds that finishing touch.

Melissa said...

Denise :)

stampin_melissa said...

What a beautiful card! I love the simplisity and elegance.

My favorite embellishment would have to be brads. They are so easy to use and I love all the coordinating colors SU has! My eyelets have pretty much gone to the wayside since all the gorgeous colors of brads.

Thanks for offering some great blog candy. Looks scrumptious!

Lisa said...

Awesome blog candy! My favorite embellishment has to be brads. I'm so excited about the new SU! rhinestone brads - I can't wait to order them. :) Lisa Hoekstra

I would have to say that my favorite embellishment would be brads. I love that there is such a vast variety of brads available, and that such a small touch can really make a card feel finished!

Chipboard accents are my faves right now. Just love finding ways to use them. Your blog candy looks wayyy yummy! What a great blog!

Denise said...

I have to admit my favorite embellishment isn't all that original-- it's ribbon! I don't think I've ever made a project without at least a little scrap on it! Not very original, I know, but it's amazing what you can do with some woven cloth! Thanks for offering the blog candy, but most of all thanks for sharing your work.

Heidi said...

This card is simple and stunning! IO really need to get some of those arturo note cards!

Well, right now it would have to probably be stickles. Not sure if that is considered an embellishment so if not ribbon is the very next in line.

P.S. I LOVE sheer polka dot ribbon!!!

kathleenh said...

I love the frosted look of this card. Very elegant looking.

I would say ribbon is my favorite embellishment. I hardly make a card without it. I would love to get my hands on some of that dotted ribbon!

Cheryl said...

My favorite embellishment is ribbon, but I have problems using it. It seems that it just never looks quite right where I place it, so I am always checking out where others use theirs and how they do it. Your blog is a treasure trove of info. Thanks for doing this.

Joyce Traub said...

Cool blog candy! I would say ribbon is my favorite embellishment. I especially love the look of dotted ribbon but I find myself hoarding what little I have.

Great blog, thanks for sharing.

Lori-Ann Bartels said...

Love the blog candy - seeing as it includes two of my most favourite embellishments! Polka dot ribbon and bling. Adding that little bit of sparkle always makes the card, I think! Thanks for all the great inspiration on your blog.

olse0231 said...

My favorite embellishment would have to be ribbon - it just adds that little extra touch to a card!

jmniffer said...

Super blog candy! I love using ribbon and brads but recently I've been on a glitter kick...my craft area has sparkles all over the place right now.

KayellWY said...

Wonderful candy! I like to say that my motto is, "Glitz is Good." I love Stickles and the crystal embellishments like you have in your blog candy. Have you seen the little crystal butterflies and dragonflies? They are wonderful little touches of color when your card just needs that one little bit of "something else."

Terri said...

Great Blog and Great Blog Candy!!! My favorite embellishment has to be ribbon. Anything with polka dots or stitches. It really adds a visual punch!

I, like others, just ADORE ribbon. You will see ribbon on just about all my creations. I love it's texture, design, and fun nature. Now all I have to do is find an efficient way to store it.
Thanks so much for sharing Rose Ann.

chelemom said...

Ooooohh I hope I win! I love this card! I just used that same stamp last night! Love it!

Bethany Paull said...

Your card is so pretty with all those soft blue edges. So nice! Now, my fave embellie: I have these little clear rhinestones. I didn't even get them in the paper crafting department. But they're just rhinestones and a pain to glue each down individually. So I've been eyeing these very same twinkle stickers you're giving away. I will definately be trying them soon. BTW, you chose some YUMMY blog candy!

Michelle said...

Love your blog!

My favorite embellishment is anything with bling! Heidi Swapp, Making Memories, etc.

Regina D. said...

Right now, my favorite embellishment is anything with bling. I love those little sparkles with the adhesive on them by A Muse.
