  2. It’s so hard to pick just ONE…But I think it has to be my Big Shot…I use it more than any other paper tool in my craft room…Love, love, love your videos by the way!…

    So hard to pick just one – but yes, it’s the Big Shot!! I like to double emboss with the embossing folders – so cool!

  21. I love my modern label punch. Awesome blog candy… would love to win!

  22. Patty Steffen said...

    I love them all, but…the bone folder is something I always reach for. I misplaced it once (can you believe that?) and had to order another one. Now I have two!

  23. I’m drooling now!! Love the candy! Love your 1 minute to WOW videos! Favorite tool would be the clear blocks for the new stamps. I love being able to see where I am stamping and not always needing the stamp-a-ma-jig.

  24. I’m a collage freak, so I must say it’s my little sharp scissors! Love your blog, Mary—thanks for the candy!

  25. Tough questiion, because there are so many great tools. For easy eye popping effects, I would have to say the punches are number 1.
    thanks!!!

  26. Michele Schroyer

    My favorite tool is the Big Shot. I love to use embossing folders and the different dies available. I would love to have the Day of Graditude. It is so versatile. Thank you for all your inspiration.

  27. My favorite tool is all of my punches!!! They match a ton of stamps and help me make beautiful cards without a ton of cutting!!! LOVE your blog!!!

  28. As much as I love my Big Shot I’d have to say I never leave home without my paper cutter and lil’ scissors – with those two tools I can create ANYTHING! I even bought an extra paper cutter to have at work. πŸ™‚

  29. It’s a toss up between my paper snips and Nestabilities. Oh yeah, I really like my punches too. Love your blog – thanks for sharing your talent and ideas with everyone!

  30. Right now I’m addicted to my punches and crimper! I love that the SU punches coordinate with the stamps; it makes it so much easier to be creative!

  31. I love the Big Shot, but I have to admit that I also enjoy a smaller tool set – the paper piercing tool and the mat pack.

    Thanks for the chance to win Blog Candy!!!

  32. Without a doubt, my cuttlebug!! I use it on almost every card. When it breaks, I am going to get the Big Shot. I love everything you can do with it! And I love this giveaway. That stamp set is just gorgeous and I would love love love to own it ! Thanks for the chance Mary!

    Connie G

    Hi Mary,
    My favorite tool is the scallop punch.
    Thanks for all your great tips!

    I would have to say that I love my punches. I love to see what things I can make w/them, and using them in layers also. Thanks for the inspiration, I look forward to it every day!

  36. It’s a tie between my Cuttlebug/embossing folders and my heat gun – I think both give my cards that extra touch. However, I would really like to get a Big Shot soon πŸ™‚ Thanks for offering the blog candy – it’s so much fun and that stamp set is my favorite!

  37. Wow, I like a few different ones but I would have to say my most favorite is embossing folders used with the Big Shot! Second favorite are the punches.

  39. Wow, can I pick just one? I am loving the new clear mount stamps. Thanks, Mary!

  40. As much as I love the big shot I have to say that I love the paper piercer. I have used it on so many cards just to add a little ‘something’ to it. And the paper piercer is also good for setting brads.

  41. I hate to repeat, but the Big Shot! With this many loyal followers you know it has to be awesome!!

  42. Big Shot but the Cropodile is a close 2nd!

  43. All of the above Mary. So hard to pick just one! Couldn’t survive without my Big Shot though. Enjoy your blog. Thanks for sharing and providing inspiration for all of us.

    Denise M

  44. Beth Hallauer

    The Embossing folders are my absolute fave!! Quick and easy and adds sooooooo much to a simple or more complex look.

  45. My favorite paper crafting tool would be the stamp-a-ma-jig. Sure is nice to have my images line up perfectly!

  49. I would have to go with the majority on the Big Shot. I know you only said one but the close second would have to be the Stampamajig. Thank you for a chance to win, I don’t have the Day of Gratitude stamp set!

  50. One of my favorite tools is the paper piercer. I love to do faux stitches!

  71. Crystal Godbee

    I love the punches! From the scallop circle to the snowflake. They’re so easy to use and make my project look professional and finished! Thanks for the chance to win!

  72. One tool is hard, but probably like most people, I think the Big Shot.

  73. I love all my “toys”, but if I can only choose one it would have to be my Big Shot! I love the textures as well as the ease of cutting things out with it. Helps me get the most out of the time I have to “play”

  74. Joyce Holzmeister

    mine is soooo simple! It has to be the corner rounder! It takes a plain card and makes it look finished!

  75. Hands down…the Big Shot!!! Love your blog! Thanks for my daily dose of inspiration!

  76. Wow! Just one, I would have to say big shot AND punches!!! Love your blog!

  77. I love SU punches. Almost every card I make has some punched item on it.

  78. I really love my Big Shot and all of my punches. I use my punches almost everytime I make cards.

  79. Oh, I can’t decide … one day its the Big Shot and the next its punches. Love getting your E-mails every day also.

  80. So-o-o into the tools!! Whichever one I am using at the time seems to always be my favorite…but overall I’d have to say that the Big Shot always adds the biggest WOW factor to any project…

  81. My favorite and most used tool is my paper cutter. A must have!

  82. For me it’s good old paper snips. I love to do paper piecing. Mary, your blog is a constant source of inspiration for me, I look forward to seeing your daily creations so much!

  83. I must admit the Martha Stewart punches are my favorite. They are the most interesting as well as being easy to punch.
    If I had to pick a second paper crafting tool, I would say that Nestabilities are it. I have them in quite a few styles and can’t wait to get them ALL.

  84. Terri (blindstamper)

    Hands down my favorite tool is the Big Shot! So many different things to be done with it!

  85. I don’t know what I would do without my bigshot!

  86. Punches are so dang much fun, but I love my Big Shot too. Thanks for the blog candy and the hard work you put into your website–love it!

  87. Oh I love all of my punches especially the scallop punch- When SU came out with that punch- well the whole world opened up- enough said! Just look at all the companies that have CASED’d Stampin up!!! We rock!

  88. The right tool for the job at hand is what makes life easier and enjoyable, therefore I just like all the tools but the punches are my favorites right now for doing my Christmas cards.
    Thanks for the daily inspiration. LM

  89. Colette white

    That’s hard to say. I love edge punches that add that extra prettyness to a card. I love shape punches with varying sizes that add layered look to an image. I have tendonitis and cutting out an image can be painful, so whenever there’s a punch to cut out the shape, i’m a happy stamper. Like you, I buy stamp sets that have coordinating punches. Makes for a faster, better looking card! The owl punch has to be my favorite now. I can make such cute ghosts, bat owls, and other owls.

  90. My “go-to” tool has to be the Crop-A-Dial. I seem to use it on every project I make. Thanks for all you post and especially your “One Minute To WOW” video’s.

  91. Anne Ruggiero

    The tool I could not go without is the Stamp-a-Magig. Before I had it I had a lot of slanted images and sayings.

  92. My new favorite tool is my Big Shot! I just love everything I can do with it! My very close second would be my heat gun as I <3 embossing! Great giveaway! You always have such wonderful tips & tricks!

  93. kathy/NorthCarolina

    I love all my tools….but I have to say my very favorite would be all my dies for my machine. What would I do without them? Gorgeous blog candy! Thanks!

  96. Teri M. Smith

    I love them all…and would like bunches more! The one that I really want to get is the Big Shot. My friend has one and when I use her’s it makes my cards look so neat!

I do have a Cricut that I will use, but I really want to get a Big Shot..I’m so thankful for my clear stamps…I love, love, love them…thanks for all that you do for us on your site.

  115. Barby Thompson

    I have to say the Stampamajig is my very favorite for perfectly aligned images. Makes your cards look very professional. πŸ™‚

    Barby

  117. my favorite is the corner rounder.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  118. Cheryl Murphy

    Hands down – the Big Shot and love the exclusive Stampin Up dies. I use the big shot every time I do a card or a scrap page-it is just the best.

    Deb

    Martha

  127. Carla Beecher

    I LOVE the embossing plates from SU that you use with the Big Shot!

    My favorite however, is the tutorial from your blog on 9/30/2010.
    Love how you changed Top Note to a whole other shape and create a beautiful set of brackets.
    Your blog is a favorite with me.

  137. tammy fletcher

    BIG SHOT, BIG SHOT, BIG SHOT…can’t use it enough…so versatile…thanks for the opportunity of blog candy!!! Hope I win!!

  138. I would have to say my cricut! I love it! Thanks for a chance to win.

  139. Mary I just <3 my SU paper cutter with the card sizes marked on it making it so easy tocut and score the perfect size card. I'm always layering so a nice crisp cut is a must. Sure I love the bigshot and my punches but you have to start out with a nice straight card base. Thanks for the blog candy op Mary.

  140. I think my favorite tools would be all of my punches. I use them for Cardmaking and Scrapbooking.

  141. Definitely my Big Shot! I cut everything but my husband’s steak with it; felt, foamie sheets, fabric, you name it. Big Shot has a permanent home out on one of my counters in my craft room as I use it so often. Thanks for the chance to win!

  142. I love the Big Shot! It gives so many options for texture in projects and texture is what gives me that “Wow” feeling.

  143. Just because I get instant gratification, the punches, esp. those that pair-up with the stamp sets. Just not into scissor cutting!

  144. Lisa Thompson

    believe it or not, the spritzer tool is my fave. love, love, love your cards! would love to win the blog candy.

  145. Okay, in fear of repetitiveness….it would HAVE to be the Big Shot. It is the most versatile tool that a stamper/scrapbooker would want as part of their ‘go to’ tools. Thanks for sharing all of your ideas….very inspirational!

  146. I am such a gadget geek. I love punches, the Big Shot, markers, the aqua painters, and so many more things. But, without my paper cutter, I would not be able to make any card. It is the start of any project & I could not live without it.

  147. The punches are my current favorite, but I am dying for a Big Shot. It’s on my Christmas list! Thanks so much for the chance to win! I check your blog almost daily… just love it. πŸ™‚

  148. I love all my embossing folders and punches, too. Thanks for a chance to win.

  149. Favorite Tool…Punches…Easy to grab a few, plop them into a tote bag and head over to someone’s house for a few hours of card fun. Love the Wow Videos…whether they are a minute or more!!!

  150. As much as I love my Cuttlebug (which I use a lot), I would have to say that I use my punches/Nestabilities dies the most. Thanks so much for offering this great blog candy, Mary! That’s so sweet! πŸ˜‰

  151. If I could only choose one it would be the Stamp-A-ma-Jig. I just can’t get things straight anymore without it. I’ve got my friends hooked on it too. Thanks for sharing all the cool ideas.

  152. I love all the punches. They add so much and are so easy to use. Great blog candy! Great blog Mary!

  153. My punches! Followed closely by my paper cutting scissors. Thanks for the giveaway!

  154. That is very difficult to say which is my favorite paper crafting tool. But stamps, ink, sponges, cutting tools (punches, Big Kick, cuttlebug, Nesties, paper cutters, and of course Scissors) all are used on nearly every project! I can’t choose just one!

  158. My favorite would have to be e Big Shot. I can use either a die or the wonderful embossing folders. But the punches are tailing pretty close πŸ™‚ Thanks for a chance for some great blog candy. The Day of Gratitude is one of my favs also, I would love to use it for thanksgiving.

  161. Leslie said … hmmmm! Decisions decisions. I am torn between my big shot and my embossing folders, but I guess I ultimately have to go with the big shot since I could not use the embossing folders without it! Love the blog candy.

  162. Mine is definitely my Big Shot. It is so versatile and I rarely ever make a card without it. The Top Note Bigz Die is my absolutely favorite, and I LOVE how you’ve shown us its versatility. Love your cards, Mary…SO gorgeous!

  163. Punches! Love, love, love punches, even with all my dies I still go back to my punches all the time. I really enjoy your blog and check it daily without fail. Thanks for all of the quick and easy inspiration, and I love that I can get everything I need from SU.

  167. Nancy Lempinen

    Very hard question to answer:
    1st choice – definitely – BIG SHOT
    2nd choice – SU Paper & ribbons – it’s like looking at yummy fabric (which I love)
    3rd choice – SU Punches make card making so easy
    4th choice – Oh forgot you only one one choice, sorry!

  168. I would say the textured impressions embossing folders with of course the Big Shot. What a great way to add texture and interest to your cards!

  169. I love the sweet treat cups. I don’t have a Big Shot yet! Just getting into this card thing. I check your blog everyday. Thank you for the inspiration. Your work is so simplistically beautiful!

  170. I’d have to say I have just discovered the embossing folders and they are great. I also just discovered you from doing a search. It was great to find you! Thanks for all the information.

  171. My punches are very compatible with all projects. My newset FAV is the OWL punch. There are endless possibilities…

  172. I would have to say my punches are my favorites. I love the way they coordinate with some of the stamps sets. After reading all of the blogs on the Big Shot, I just might have to invest in one! Thanks for keeping me motivated and inspired.

  173. Wendy Keirsey

    My favorites are the embossing folders!! They make such a big wow factor in seconds. Thanks for all your great ideas. You are amazing!!

  175. Love my cuttlebug and folders. Add a wow factor to my cards. Thanks for sharing your talent with those of us less endowed!

  177. My ultimate favorite tool is the EK Success Ruler 3×15 in) because it has a metal piece along the side when you cut with your hobby knife (my second favorite tool). This ruler has lines in it. The BOMB! Thank you for many of your tips on your blog!

  178. I really like my Big Shot, but due to lack of space I have to “get it out” to use it. So even though it’s a favorite, I have to vote my punches as my #1 choice in “tools”….close at hand, easy to use, & lots of variety!
    Your blog is also one of my everyday “tools”…I get great ideas & inspiration here. Thanks!!!

  179. Love my cuttlebug and folders. Add a wow factor to my cards. Thanks for sharing your talent with those of us less endowed!

    My top Stampin’ up tool is my Big Shot and any Stampin’ up dies. My top tool overall would have to be my Genesis paper trimmer. I’ve had it for about 8 years and the blade is still as sharp as ever and I’ve put it through some pretty hard work! I adore this stamp set, great giveaway, thanks Mary!

  182. I have so many favorite tools and techniques, but I guess if I had to choose, I would say “glitter” – just love it! By the way, this is the first time I’ve ever commented, and wanted to tell you how much I love your cards and other projects.

  183. Oh boy if I have to think of one I would pick…oh I cant pick one. OK the item I use the most is my BIG SHOT! I pick that. The items up for grab are beautiful! Thanks Mary. You are a true inspiration!

  184. My favorite tools are dies – nesties,quickutz, sizzix etc. I am a diecut junkie. Now I would love to have Day of Gratitude. You have done so many wonderful projects with this set. Thanks for the opportunity and I have my fingers crossed!

  185. That is a tough one, it kind of depends on the project but my punches are a go to for tons of things. I love my big shot to though!

  186. Border punches are my very favorite thing. I have quite the collection going!

  187. I agree….it’s hard to pick just one. I would have to say my Big Shot, along with the embossing folders.

  188. Oh my goodness…to choose just one. I love the punches, but if I had to choose one tool it would be the Big Shot!! I can do so many things with it and it always “fixes” the card that needs something.

    Thanks for all your video tutorials and you great ideas!! Enjoy your day!!

  189. Nothing more to say–it’s the BIG SHOT all the way !

  190. Big shot, punches, Big shot. punches. can’t have one with out the other. They both give your card that over the top look. Love your tips and card ideas. I love your candy blog give away. Thank you

    I have to admit my cutting skills are not great so I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all the punches SU is bringing out. It keeps my projects looking beautiful and professional.

    Thanks Mary!
    Veronica

  206. My favorite item is Iridescent Embossing powder.

  207. My favorite tool would have to be my punches for cool layers and borders! Thanks for the chance to win candy!

  208. Jeannie Barron

    I love SU punches, but I can’t make a card without a bone folder. I love your blog!

  209. Hands down, the BIG SHOT!

  210. Just love the Big Shot! The punches are fun also. Sure hope I win. Love the gratitude stamps and would love to have those!

  211. The papercrafting “tool” that I love (and use) the most would definitely be my embossing heat gun! Thanks so much for this fabulous giveaway – this stamp set is one of my FAVORITES and is actually on my “wish list” so hope Santa is reading this!

  212. Lupe Rocamora

    I would have to say my favorite tool is my cuttlebug. I love all the things I can do on it and it’s compatible with all the Big Shot plates. Thank you for a chance to win a great prize.

  213. My favorite is the big shot. I love my embossing folders. The added look they give a card is incredible.
    Thanks for the chance to win and have a Happy Halloween!

  214. Bernice in New Mexico

    I would have to say the Heat Tool when used with embossing powders – it dresses up my cards in an instant, and sets colors when needed. Of course the Big Shot is also a favorite – with all the accessories that go with that. Too little time for me to play, though. Bummer!!! Love your cards, always!!

  215. My favorite tool would be a tie between my punches and my big shot! I use one or the other on almost all my cards and other items I make. Thanks for the chance.

  216. Nicole Barker

    My favorite tool(s) would have to be SU! punches! I don’t think I have made a card without using at least 1 punch.

  217. I think it’s unaminous, the Big Shot! Love it and you can do so many things with it.

  218. Without a doubt, my favorite tool is my Big Shot and
    dies…Punches run a close second. These tools make
    life so much easier and things are neatly and clearly
    cut out.
    Love your site !!

  219. There is so many but I love the new ribbon punch. I love ribbon on cards but with postage so high this punch adds a ribbon look without having the added bulk.
    I especially love running it through my crimper. So neat. I used it on all my Christmas cards!!

  220. My Fav tool has to be my Tonic Paper Cutter followed closely by Word Window Punch.

  221. Hi Mary, not sure if my comment was posted or not. So, if this is a duplicate, please remove this.

    My fav has to be Tonic Paper Cutter closely followed by SU Word Window Punch.

  222. The bigshot alone is not my favorite you have to have dies and folders and sizlets to work. As a new SU demonstrator, my favorite tool is stampin connection to give me inspiration to create. Without inspiration, all the tools in the world are useless! Keep on bloggin Mary.. your are my “pretty” go to girl.

  223. What a wonderful blog you have Mary! Look forward to it daily. My favorite tool is a toss up between my punc hes ,, and the texture plates for my big shot. Thanks for a chance to win!

  224. Hmmm – it is a toss-up between my Big Kick and my Stampin Up punches. I just love die cuts & punches!

  225. My BIG SHOT is my favorite. It adds such dimension and uniqueness to any card.

  226. Dana Cavanaugh

    It’s hard to pick just one because it really depends on my mood and what I’m into at the time. I would have to say my brayer. You can do some really stunning techniques with a brayer. Good luck to everyone!

  227. Hi Mary!
    Thanks for the chance to win! What a great collection! My favorite stamping / crafting tool is the Big Shot!

  228. I have to say my SU punches are my favorite with the Big Shot coming in at a close second. I love the convenience and versitility of punches and the textures of the embossing plates. Thanks for the chance to win, as I love the Day of Gratitude stamp set.

  229. I guess it would be my border punches right now. They are so portable and add so much to the project.

  230. Susan Patrsyk

    The Big Shot is by far my most favourite crafting tool. A close second would have to be any of Stampin’ Up!’s edge punches — they add so much to any crafting project. Thanks for sharing your creativity, Mary. I love checking to see what you’re up to — always inspiring!!

  231. BIG SHOT, BIG SHOT, BIG SHOT Hands down. I would be lost without it. My Cuttlebug is a real close second. I wouldn’t want to be without either one.

  232. My favorite tool for all my papercrafting is the bone folder–I know not the choice of many–but honestly it is the one I use most often–I can’t stand a card or die without nice crisp folds. Thanks for the chance to win.

  233. My favorite tools are the punches, especially the new larger ones. Thanks for posting every day. Love it!

  234. I have been using my corner punches alot lately…since my motto is less is more, a quick punch on the corner of a card gives it a little extra flair..have been using corner rounder the most but have other MS corner punches that I like too…thanks for the chance to win…I LOVE that stamp set!

  235. My favorite tool is the Graph paper. I didn’t realize how much I used it until I had some old graph paper without the measurements on it. I used it every time I am creating something because the measurements are right on the paper. I also use it for scoring.

    Thanks for always sharing your beautiful creations with us!
    Susan

  236. Well, it’s hard to name just one. My newest favorite paper crafting tool is the Big Shot. Just started enjoying the beauty of the textured background. Jill

  237. Like so many others, my all-time favorite crafting tool is the Big Shot … you can use it for so many things! Thanks for the opportunity to win some wonderful blog candy. Happy Halloween!

  238. I didn’t think I would like it but once you get the hang of twisting the ends – I love the new Big Shot Candy Wrapper. Too cute!!Thanks for a chance to win this stamp set – I don’t have it but I love all of the creations you have made with it!!

  239. It seems that almost everyone says it’s their Big Shot BUT I got along just fine before I had one so I’d say rubber stamps is my favorite; is that considered a tool? How could we possibly get along without our stamps? They’re first & foremost for me.

  240. Oh man to pick just one? I guess the Big Shot is the most versatile since you can make boxes, bags, tags and add texture too with the impressions folders. thanks for the chance to win your wonderful candy!
    hugs,
    Elizabeth

  241. My favorite tool is my Big Shot! It is so relaxing to roll my paper and die through it and see cool cutouts emerge!!!

  242. I love the punches but the Big Shot is a very close second.

  243. Definitely the Big Shot.

  244. I love my cutting mat. It isn’t glamorous but where would I be without it? Thanks for the giveaway!

  245. Leslie Nyholm

    My favorite would have to be the Fiskers cutting unit from Stampin’ Up. It’s an essential to me and I wouldn’t get anything done without it!

  246. Hands-down has got to be my Big Shot and all it’s accessories-especially the dies and embossing folders.

  247. I love my punches and my big shot, along with almost everyone else here!!! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance to win.

  248. If I had to pick just one tool that I couldn’t live without it would have to be my paper trimmer. I cannot think of a project in which I have not used a trimmer.

  249. Definitely the Big Shot, with all the accessories, don’t know how I would survive with out them. So many others are close seconds. Thanks for all your expertise. I learn everyday from what you show. Thank you so much.

  250. I would have to say my punches are my favorite tools since I don’t have a Big Shot. The punches are great for quick projects especially the cirlce scalloped punch. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas.

  251. Hi Mary,
    well my favorite tool has to be my Big Shot. The possibilities are endless with what can be done with this neat tool.
    thanks for all the great ideas on your blog :0)

  252. I absolutely LOVE this stamp set! I would have to say my favorite tool is a stamp-a-ma-jig. I can’t live without it!

  253. I’d have to say my Big Shot is my favorite; I seem to use it for most every card I make.

  254. I think the cuttlebug has to be one of my favorite tools to use. Awesome work all the time keep it up!

  255. My favorite is the cuttlebug. Awesome work keep it up!

  256. The “Big Shot” is used the most often but I do love using the mat pack…makes for great alignment. Keep up your wonderful creativity….

  257. My favorite paper-crafting tool is a mundane one: dimensionals. I use them on almost EVERY card I make! But if dimensionals don’t count as a “tool”, then I choose my Big Shot. LOVE it. It has so many uses!

  258. I can’t live with out my paper piecer and mat pack. A super-quick way to add texture, fill in space, and depth to any project!

  259. I love punches… especially punches that coordinate perfectly with stamp sets!

  260. Shannon FInnegan

    I love my Big Shot and my punches… they allow me to cut multiples of things for fast card and scrapbook making.

  261. Big Shot is my favorite – if I am not careful I will get started making a card with a die cut & will end up with lots of that cut – when really I just wanted to make 4 cards but feel forced to make more because of all the cut outs I just did with my Big Shot.

  262. I would say my Scor-Pal–I use it with every project I create. I also love my Cuttlebug for embossing and oh, I use at least one punch on the cards I make, so it’s hard to keep it down to just one when there’s so many great tools to create it.

  263. BIG SHOT! Love it for the versatility. I am addicted to your blog every morning I rise with a cup of joe to see what you have for me. My special slice of the am. Thank you for the videos!
    [email protected]

  264. My favorit tool is the crimper. I love to make plain paper into textured paper and give my card a little “zing.”

  265. I’m very fickle, and my “favorite” tool seems to change from one new acquisition to the next. My current favorite is the owl punch. I’m having such fun making their eyes expressive–looking at a certain thing or each other, cross-eyed, etc. Thanks for your wonderful blog and this blog candy. I’d love this set!

  266. I am going crazy with the 2 3/8″ circle scallop extra large punch, making the great accordian folded flowers you demonstrated on the video tutorial. Everyone who sees them is just in love with them and think I am amazing. Thanks for making me look so great.

  267. Amy (ByTheCreator'sHand)

    I have to say I consider STAMPS as “tools” and I love ’em. They (and my daughter)are what got me into card-making and scrapbooking to begin with. So they are my “favorite tool.” They take a plain whatever (card, scrapbook page, napkin, napkin ring, framed wall decor, printed retreat agendas, etc., etc., etc.) and transform it into something special. A close second would be my paper cutter and after that the bone folder. After reading all the comments about the Big Shot, I may need to invest in one of those soon! LOVE your blog, Mary! Soooo creative!

  268. My Big Shot gives WOW to my cards, but using the stampamajig makes them perfect!

  269. I think everyone loves their Big Shot, but punches and embossing folders are close seconds. And, what about our paper cutter? Where would we be without that? Love your ideas, projects and videoes! Thanks for a great blog and blog candy giveaways!!!!

  270. The Big Shot is my fave! I love, love, love embossing folders!!

  271. I would have to go with my Big Shot. Thank for the chance to win I love that stamp set.

  272. I love, love, love punches! I use at least one, if not numerous, on every card and scrapbook page I make. Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful candy!!

  273. My favorite is my stamp-a-ma-jig. But I love my Big Shot and all of the punches as well. There are just too many good items to pick from! Loving the blog candy!

  274. My favorite thing is ribbon. No matter what
    ribbon you use it adds a layer of texture and
    fun.

  275. It’s a toss up between my Big Shot and my punches. I use them both on nearly every project I create. Love your blog! Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas with us every day!

  276. I love the corner punch. It adds so much to a card and is very simple to do. Thanks for your blog!

  277. Wow! My favorite tool would have to be the one that I never make a card without…my paper cutter! I love the Stampin’ Up punches too, though I must admit that I do like the old style better!
    Love your website and all the great inspiration I get from you! Thanks for a chance at the blog candy!

  278. Julie-Anne Collins

    Mary…First of all I want to take this time to tell you that I am addicted to your site …I can’t wait each day to see what new project or tip you have to share with us!

  279. So many tools, so little time! I love my Big Shot soo much (and so does my husband!), my heat gun, my sharp scissors, and all the glorious punches. But my ultimate fave tool right now is my centering ruler as I am space-ily challenged!

  280. Hey Mary, great blog candy. πŸ™‚ I’d have to say that my favorite tool….simple, but it’s my sponges. You can have the most simple card and give it a WOW with just a little bit of sponging. Of course, I also love my Big Shot….but sponge when you have nothing else! πŸ™‚ Blessings-Tana Conley http://tanaconley.blogspot.com

  290. Heather M from Maine (the way life should be)

    Mary: the one thing that I reach for on almost every project (beside the obvious like my paper cutter) is my cropadile. I love to add ribbon to my cards and this is my go to tool. HOWEVER this was a tough choice between the crocodile and my big shot.

  291. Thanks for the fabuous giveaway!!! My favortie would have to be the big shot. The possibilities are endless!!

  296. Judy DiScipio

    I LOVE all my tools!!! I use my Big Shot all the time…and what would we do without our punches????

    Thank you for the inspiration and keep on creating!

  303. I love SU punches – and I think my fav is the scallop edge punch. How easy to spiff up a card with it.

  304. The punches are fast and easy to use. And can be used to cover an oops. Enjoy your updates! Thanks for all you do.

  305. Sarah Camarillo

    My favorite tools are the punches! There are so many different ways to use them. πŸ™‚

  306. susanne sorensen

  307. The Color Coach is great for people like me who always want to use the same favorite colors all the time. It helps me to branch out a little.

  309. I love the punches, especially any that have coordinating stamp sets!! Cutting out images isn’t my strong suit, so the punches make that a breeze!

    Thanks for a chance to win some blog candy!

  314. Punches! I don’t think I can do a card without them… Although the big shot is a close second too.

  315. Does the Big shot count? If not all the punches

  316. I LOVE Stampin’Up! punches! Other than our amazing paper selection, the punches, especially the 2 step owl, are my favorite! I hope I win!

  317. My Stamp-a-ma-jig! I’m a newbie and it’s helping me a lot! I’m learning so much from your posts. Thanks!
    Lisa

  318. I do love the Big Shot because of it’s versatility of uses with different media (paper, fabric, chipboard, plastic, etc), but I more often use the hand punches because they are so easy to grab and use.

  319. Not sure I would consider this a tool, but I love dimensionals..any project looks better with a few of them to give some depth to a project. Also love blender pens and daubers!

  320. Mary, I love your blog and cards you are a true inspiration!!!! My favorite tool would have to be the Big Shot. Thank you for the chance.
    Hugs,

  323. Hi Mary, thanks for the chance to win blog candy. I have so many favorite tools but my fav cool tool is the stampin’ scrub – i know it may sound silly but it’s good clean fun & helps me keep my cherished stamps in great shape.

  324. Right now I love the owl punch. The Big shot is next. Having so much fun with both of them. Thanks for the blog candy. Hope I win.

    Thanks for offering up some blog candy and sharing somemore fabulous tips with us.

  356. I am probably like everyone else and will say the Big Shot. I could not live without it.

    I would have to say my punches first and my big shot a close second.

  363. De Williamson

    I am so happy I upgraded to the BIG shot. I love using embossing folders to add texture to a card without making a card too bulky. Thanks for all your wonderful inspiration. I can’t go a day without my “pretty” fix!

  364. I love the Big Shot and the punches, but right now my favorite thing is the Shimmer Paint. I mixed it in a spritzer bottle with alcohol and I spray it on everything! It adds a great shimmer and shine! It really enhances every project!

  365. Since I consider the Big Shot a necessity, I will say the embossing folders. Having that extra texture makes cards SO rich. Love your 1 minute videos, Mary!

  366. I love my punches and my Cuttlebug is a close second! Thanks for the opportunity to win such fabulous loot!

  367. My favorite tool is the big shot. I never thought I would love it the way I do. You can do so much with it.

  368. Miriam Daniels

    Woo hoo is right!!! I love embossing folders and my corner chomper. Thanks for the chance to add to my Stampin Up collection.

  369. So many people have said Big Shot that I hate to be so repetitious. . .however, I had another “Big Name” brand for several years and I am so much happier with my Big Shot. I really love it. And, I love your blog. It’s the first thing I open up each morning at work – oops, I mean after I get home!!! LOL

  370. The Big Shot and ALL OF IT’S ACCESSORIES – which would include paper. I always look forward to seeing your blog each day and now with your WOW videos it is more WOW!

  373. My favorite tool is the Big Shot. I love the various dies and embossing folders for the Big Shot. I also like the various things you can make using the Big Shot i.e. cards, scrapbook pages, gifts, etc.

  374. Hey Mary – Another vote for the Big Shot here. πŸ™‚ And thanks for the tip on using Staz-On with the cellophane bags! I have so many of them from stamp camps that I had gotten to the point of not taking them anymore because I didn’t know what to do with them. A blog post on how to use them would be great as I didn’t know you could really “mail” them.

  375. Big shot for sure!!!!

  376. If I had to pick just one, it would be the Big Shot! Love your website!

  377. Peggy Paszkiewicz

  393. Sandy (redstampinsam)

    Like so many other paper crafters, I think the Big Shot would have to be my favorite tool because it allows me to use so many of the wonderful toys Stampin’ Up has to offer. I started off with the Cuttlebug but the Big Shot has really broadened my horizons, allowing me to use the Bigz XL Dies, the Embosslits, the Sizzlits, and the wonderful embossing folders. All of that texture really makes my cards come alive! Thanks for the opportunity to win such great blog candy!!!

  394. Mary: So much to pick from….but I have to say that my favorite tool is my ATG gun. That thing makes putting projects together so much faster. My life is so much happier with it.

  395. Love your designs! Thanks for the chance at winning the “loot!”
    My favorite paper crafting tool these days is my edge distressor! I love the look it gives the edges of my papers!

  396. he Big Shot and the 12″ border dies.

  397. my my my…no way to pick only one…Big Shot, punches and…well actually I guess I need to back up and say the stamp-a-ma-jig as I can be just a bit finiky about precision and placement of things…

  398. My all time fav crafting tool has to be the crop-a-dile…it has so many uses and it is the first thing I go to when I need to embelish my projects. The big shot was a close second πŸ™‚

  399. Love receiving your emails. My fav would have to be the Big Shot. By the way, the mini Holiday catalog is the best yet.

  401. My favorite tool is the Cricut. I also love the Stampin’ Up label punches.

  402. Without a doubt, my Big Shot!!! I LOVE that thing and couldn’t live without it! I joke with my husband that I sit at work thinking about what I’m going to make with it when I get home πŸ˜‰

  403. If I have to chose just one it would have to be my punches! I love how they coordinate with alot of SU stamp sets they make your pages and cards look so speical!!

  404. My favorite paper crafting tool has to be the Big Shot and all it’s accessories!!! It gives everything such a crisp look.
    Love the Day of Gratitude stamp set. Don’t have that one yet!
    Thank you for offering the candy.

  405. Christine aka The Stampin' Ninja

    Hugs, Christine aka The Stampin’ Ninja

  406. Oh my this a a tough one. I love the Big Shotand all you can use it for, dies, embossing folders, etc. But you just can’t work unless you have all the wonderful punches.

  410. Kelley Roganowicz

    I love my Big Shot! My demonstrator has recently started offering a Big Shot class that shows us different techniques to do with our Big Shot. We cut felt, window sheets (and embossed them) and aluminum cans! It was so cool!

  411. I can not live without my punches! I love them all!

  412. Jenna Johnson

    I love all of my punches and the glitter spritzers are so much fun and give my fancier cards a little something!!!!!

  413. I don’t know what I would do without my punches! I love them all!

  414. My favorite tool is my Big Shot machine but I do love the ornament punch too. I have wanted this stamp set ever since I saw your Rock and Roll video tutorial. What a cool technique. I have tried it with other stamps but would LOVE to try it with this Day of Gratitude stamp if I am so blessed. Thank you for the time you take to give us such great ideas in sharing our passion of card making with others Mary. :0)

  422. I think my favorite cutting tool is punches of all shapes and sizes, I own a bunch and love to see the new things I can create…Plus, they cut beautifully, which is great for the cutting challenged like me.

  423. Mary,

    juts have to check your blog everyday!

  424. I love my Big Shot too, but I am a total punch addict! I have to get the punches that have coordinating stamp set images so that I can pop them out. Anything I can do to avoid cutting things out by hand makes me happy!

  435. Hey Mary, my favorite tool is my Cricut. My favorite SU tool is my old Coluzzle set.

  437. Chris R. from Iowa

    Wow, look at all the comments! Well, my favorite tool this week is my curly label punch – I made the cutest little Frankenstein cards with it! But, usually I would have to say my Fiskars cutter with the cutter and scoring blade. Ask me again next week! Great giveaway – I, too, would love to have the set but keep saying no I really don’t need it. We have made some fun cards at my stamping club with that set and yours are amazing!

  438. Just don’t know which one to pick. It could be snippers, border punches, any punches, just have too many to pick from to decide. What I can say that crafting is my way out of the real world a little while.

  439. i enjoy the paper piecreing tool

    easy tool to make things look delicate

  440. I love your designs. Favorite tools are punches and big shot embossing folders.

  442. Mary-
    Happy Halloween~
    My favorite is the Mat Pack (& Paper Piercer–of course)!
    Nicole

  443. Hi Mary thanks for the chance to win. My favorite hands down would have to be punches and I am so glad that StampinUP has coordinated their stamps with punches. They are so wonderful!
    Dianne

  444. Practical answer but my paper cutter from SU (traded in an old Fiskers for SU’s and Love it wish I would have traded up years ago!)

  445. I agree that it’s hard to name one favorite thing, so I would say my Cuttlebug, embossing folders and punches! There are so many possibilities of making WOW cards when you have these.

  446. love the tool on key ring that distressing the paper. A simple way to change a card

  447. My favorite tool is the Movers & Shaper dies used with my Big Shot. I use the individual shape dies to create mats to coordinated with favorite punches. Stamp it, punch it & mat it. Crisp, clean & classy!

    Thanks Mary for all you do & offering the candy πŸ™‚

  448. rachel schindler

    The big shot is my favorite. I love to emboss everything even my envelopes. I enjoy your blog and I hope to win the blog candy.

  449. the punches are a wonderful tool. I love to build animals with them.

  450. I love punches the most, and save every teeny tiny piece of paper and punch them all. I know, I am crazy. LOL

  451. Since I discovered your web site and your WOW tutorials, my favorite tool is my scallop punch. I love making the flowers!

  452. I have a collection of stamping “tools” but the one thing I cannot sit and craft without is my bone folder.
    Does that seem funny? I use it for creasing everything, and always make sure it is within reach before I get started on any project. Your blog candy looks fabulous, please add my name to the drawing!
    thanks. Kathy Ness

  453. I love PUNCHES. I used to say that I had a “punch problem”. now I just say, need a punch? no problem!

  454. Well the big shot is it! I love all the special creations that you can make out of it and use to “frame” your stamped images.

  455. Definitely my Big Shot – die cutting has really come a long way & I’m happy SU is finally offering it. Thanks & happy weekend.

  456. I like the Stamp a MaJig…easy to make sure things are straight!

  457. I inherited a cuttlebug when my BFF got her Big Shot. It is fast becoming a favorite tool, although I love my Cricut.

  458. My favorite tool would have to be my punches, because they are so versatile. For instance, I can make rosebuds with my 2-step bird punch. i have been wanting this stamp set soooo much. I would really love to win this blog candy giveaway.!!! Thanks for all you do.

  459. Definitely the Big Shot! (Looks like I’m not the only one) I love your classy, simple, bold, beautiful style – thanks for the continuous inspiration!

  460. My current favorite stamping item is the Versamark ink. My favorite paper crafting tool is the Big Shot, along with embossing folders and dies. Thanks for the chance to win blog candy. Your blog is one of three that I check nearly every day. Such inspiring ideas! Thanks for sharing!

  461. Oh my goodness, that is an easy one…definitely my Big Shot! Where would I be without it? And to think that I scoffed when SU introduced it thinnking that card makers don’t need diecut machines! lol! Of course, my favorite thing to use along WITH the BS would be the exclusive SU embossing folders! Jan Hoyt

  462. Stephanie Daughtrey

    Oh my Mary! What generous blog candy! I love the Big Shot and the piercing tool (which I have just began to use.). I also Love your blog.

  463. Definitely the Big Shot! I don’t know what I did without it! Thanks for the chance to win! I LOVE your blog and many ideas!

  464. Awesome give away. I Know it’s been said countless times but it is that awesome, my favorite paper tool is the Big Shot. I absolutely love my embossing folders and dies. πŸ™‚ thanks so much for such a great blog. I follow daily πŸ™‚

  465. The punches! Every card I’ve ever made has used at least one punch. I never met a punch I didn’t like πŸ˜‰

  466. I LOVE the embossing folders. You can change a card so dramatically with these simple to use folders. You have one of my favorite blogs to check out. Thanks!

  467. I love the “bone folder” — love to have the crisp lines — and of course I love all my stuff (stash)!

  468. It’s hard to pick one tool as a favorite. I like the mat pack and piercing tool; it makes it easy to add the “something extra” that some cards need to make them complete.

  469. I love the border punches! Love the extra little bit of “blingy” that they can add to a card. I don’t have the stamp set so I hope you pick me!

  470. My favorite tool is the Big Shot. Thank you for offering all the wonderful blog candy. Love your work!

  471. Mine is the Big Shot! I love, love, love it! I use it not just for my papercrafting, but also, for making things for my classroom!

  472. It would have to be my Big Shot! Thanks for sharing your creativity and for helping to spark mine!

  473. Suzanne Laufer

    Hi Mary,
    So hard to pick one…..hummmmm I guess it would be my paper piercing tool and mat pack. It has made placing brads so much easier and as a bonus it leaves a cool effect when you outline things with the piercings. Love it!

  474. I love the stampin-up punches-my newest is the owl punch but running a close 2nd is my 2 step bird punch-thanks for the chance to win an awesome stamnp set

  475. Gotta be the tabletop paper trimmer. That is really the starting point, right? I mean without it, you can’t even begin to make all the cool things you can make from the SU! papers and such. Love all your projects – thanks for your great, inspirational postings!

  476. HappyGoCrafty

    Right now I love embossing folders!

  477. The Big Shot has got to be my favorite. It seems I cannot make a card without using it!! I love it.

  478. The Big Shot for sure! How did we make cards without it?! A close second is our punches.

  479. Is there any other tool besides the Bigshot?? I would never divorce mine!! He needs to be in my life forever! LOL

  480. First – thanks for the chance to win blog candy.
    Second – thanks for sharing your great ideas.
    Third – and the toughest- I would choose my punches.

  481. I think my cuttlebug is probably my favorite. I just love embossing on cards.

  482. Hi Mary, if i had to pick the stampin up! punches would be my favorite but my paper piercer comes in a close second! thanks for offering this blog cany:)

  483. I absolutely love the Big Shot – it allows you to have such diversity, whether cutting shapes out or embossing. It’s a fabulous tool!

  484. I love the Stampa ma Jig (Sp?) It really makes my cards look professional,second would have to be the Big Shot. And then …..too many to name. My best, Wendy

  485. My definite favorite is my Big Shot machine with the embossing folders.

  486. Julie Learned

    Hi Mary, I would have to say I reach for my cuttlebug the most but there sure are lots of others I adore just as much!!! Thanks for the chance to win.

    Julie L.

  487. The Big Shot is my favorite tool. I love the embossing folders. My punch collection is a very close second. Love your projects!

  488. Love your stuff! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful ideas. My favorite would have to be my punches followed closely by my Big Shot and my paper cutter! So many treasures. I love them all!

  489. Monica Croteau

    My favorite tool is probably the aqua-painters. I LOVE to watercolor and since the aqua-painters, it has made watercolor a breeze. I like the painter with the small tip best for control in small images…thanks for asking..

  490. I love the punches. It gives great dimensions and makes your project pop with the extra layers!

  491. Wow! I can see I need to get a Big Shot!! I love my punches & also my heat gun & embossing powders. Sounds like the rest of the comments share a liking for their Big Shot so guess I’m behind the times by not having one. I’m saving my pennies for one now!

  492. Katherine Lee

    I am so excited about this blog candy, I really like that stamp set, and the other things would be a lot of fun for my collection. It is REALLY hard to narrow down what my favorite tool would be I guess I would have to say my paper trimmer. Probably not the most exciting tool but it’s the one that gets used on every project and I finally found one that I love and can use easily.

  493. I absolutely LOVE the embossing folders and have nearly all of them (missing one I think). I don’t have the Big Shot (do have a Cuttlebug) and I just love the many different looks you can create to make beautiful cards easily. Thanks for a change to win the great blog candy, Mary! Your cards are always great.

  494. I love punches, and the SU! punches are great quality! After reading the comments though, I think that the Big Shot may someday replace punches as my favorite tool. It is at the top of my crafting wish list.

  495. I love punches, and the SU! punches are great quality! After reading the comments though, I think that the Big Shot may someday replace punches as my favorite tool. It is at the top of my crafting wish list.

  496. If I can only choose one I think it would be the Big Shot.
    But who can choose just one?

  497. I love the big shot too, but the Stampin’ Up! Ornament Punch is quickly becoming a favorite. There are so many different things you can do with this punch, such as the ornament punch rose or dress it up to make a fish.

  498. Jennifer Wynne

    Love my border punch! – Keep up the great blog, look forward to the new ideas daily!!!

  499. Mary (Happy Now)

    Awesome! It’s simple, really, but I LOVE my bone folder!

  500. I absolutely LOVE the Big Shot! Wasn’t sure I wanted one, I have a Cricut, but the Big Shot can do so much more!

  501. Love that blog candy. >…this is a hard one. Punches or Embossing folders ??? I think I’d have to say the SU embossing folders are my all time fave. My favorite one is the SU vintage wallpaper because you can use it for halloween card background or a Victorian card background. It’s very versatile. Thanks for asking such great questions. ((Hugs))

  502. I think my favorite tool is by Big Shot. It allows me to do so many different things on cards. Thanks for all your creations — I would love today’s “candy.” thanks for the opportunity.

  503. I’m inclined to pick the Big Shot also … and I didn’t think I’d use it when it first came out! I also love my punches & my stamp-a-ma-jig!!

  507. I love punches!!! I love the big shot, but don’t have many dies yet as they are a bit expensive!

    First of all let me say I “love” your blog. I can hardly wait each day to see what you’ve posted. Now lets see hummmmm I love owl punch and what you can do
    with it.

  514. I love my Big Shot with the embossing folders…makes any card look great!

  515. My face tool like so many others is the Big Shot. I not only love using it for paper but have run cork fabric magnet foam and even bottle caps thru there. If it were any wider I’d be trying to use it to press my husbands shirts! Thanks for the chance to win!

  516. I love the owl punch! It is one of the most funnest punches ever.

  517. My favorite “go-to” tool is the Mat Pack. I use it to make the holes with my paper-piercing tool. Plus I use it to line up my brads and all the easy stick blig and pearls. It has been such a great tool!

  518. I just love my big shot — so fun!

  519. I’d never give up my embossing folders! Love the texture and extra interest they give my cards! Thanks for all the great ideas you share with us!

  520. Patricia Dickneider

    Difficult to chose just one…but I would have to go with my Stampin’ Up punches. Love to make pretty borders, shapes, and of course, my little bird on a branch. If I could enter a second choice, it would be my Wallpaper Embossing Folder, which makes the most beautiful cards.

  521. I know this is a popular reply, but couldn’t agree more: BIG SHOT! You can make a quick, elegant, impressive card with the Big Shot and an embossing folder.

  522. Hi Mary!

    Thanks for the awesome rak!!! My favorite tool is the Big Shot, hands down! You can so many neat things and with the embossing folders, LOVE IT!!

    Have a great weekend! I’ll keep my fingers crossed! πŸ™‚

    Jeanie

  523. I love the Big Shot. You can use it to make so many different things.

  524. the paper piercing tool is so simple yet really brings a lot to a card. i’m all about simple and powerful so it is the perfect tool for me!

  525. Mary, This is a no brainer…My BIG SHOT, of course!!!!
    Blessings, MaryS

  526. Ever since I was little I’ve LOVED glitter! So, I’d have to say glitter is my favorite paper crafting tool. Does that count as a tool? Prob not! πŸ™ Darn embellishments! There are so many! OK. Let me restart my post. Ever since I was little I’ve ALSO LOVED paper punches! Doesn’t matter if it’s a circle office punch or some cool shape! There’s so many to choose from now!

  527. Lately my best tools have been the punches. Probably because I love to use every last scrap:) You are awesome and the videos lately have been so helpful! Thank you!

  528. By far my favorite tool is the Big Shot. It’s so versatile, there is no end to it. πŸ™‚ It was the first item I got with my first paycheck & there isn’t any regrets!

  529. LOVE the big shot…use on almost everything. I made a card without using the embossing folder the other day and the card just didn’t look right LOL!! Thanks for the chance at the yummy blog candy:)

  530. Obviously my paper cutter has to be #1, followed very closely by my Big Shot. See that’s pretty popular with your blog followers. Thanks for the chance to win your blog candy giveaway! Your creative talent always WOWs me and enjoy your quick tutorials.

  531. The Big Shot! Thank you so much for all your tutorials and inspiring ideas! πŸ™‚

  532. My favorite paper crafting tool is the Big Shot! Love, love, love its versatility. Thanks for all the wonderful projects you post.

  533. Hi Mary,

    I think my favorite tool today is my BigShot! I just love it and use it on most of my projects. Btw, I have your site open everyday – one of my daily inspirations when I can’t get crafty myself:)

  534. My favorite tool, hmmm…punches, all of them πŸ™‚

  535. Oh my. I have to pick one. I guess my favorite tool would be the Big Shot but I have so many favorites including the crop-a-dile, stamp-a-ma-jig (now that I figured out how to use it) and the spritzer. Love your blog. Thanks for opportunity to win blog candy

  536. I love my Big shot. Use it every single day. Don’t know what took me so long to get it.

  537. It would have to be my Big Shot. I can use dies from different suppliers and it is so easy to use. πŸ™‚

  538. Katrina franklin

    Like everyone else, I love my Big Shot and use it everyday. However I think I couldn’t survive without my table top cutter. It’s like butter!!!! Love it!

  539. Hi Mary,
    I would say the border punches, I think they add that wow to any project and they are so easy to use. I love my Big Shot too but the punches are so quick. Thanks for all of your inspiration and a chance to win that great blog candy.

  540. Cheryl McAskill

    Wow, seems like the Big Shot and punches are the popular tools. Mine is a guilliotine (sp?) paper cutter. It just seems easier to cut all that paper for projects much easier. Perhaps Stampin’Up! can come up with one with their logo on it! I’d buy it in a heartbeat! But all in all, the stamping tools I do like are the Big Shot top note and my punches for punch art!

  541. corner punches they put the finishing touch on a homemade card

  542. I love the SU punches!! I have almost every single one!! (maybe missing 6 or 7) I use a punch in almost every single project I make.

  543. JoAnn Burnham

    Love this blog candy, especially the stamp set. I have seen so many beautiful projects made with it. Thanks for a chance to win. My favorite tool is definitely the Big Shot and all the dies.

  544. My favorite tools are punches. All shapes and sizes: circles, corners, photo corners, hearts! When making assembly line cards for holidays they make creating so much easier.

  545. Heat gun!! I love to emboss.

  546. Just one?!?! I love punches & the Big Shot & your blog! You’re such an inspiration!

  547. I love my Big Shot and the embossing dies. You can be so creative with these and emboss almost anything. Thank you for the opportunity.

  548. The Big Shot hands down!

  549. Today my favorite is the big shot. But I think my favorites change often. I love your blog and love that stamp set. Hope I win.

  550. I would have to say the punches….. Great blog candy and very appropriate for this time of year! Thanks for the chance to win!

  551. My favorite tool has to be my entire crafting space along with your site and the one minute to wow videos. I look forward to every one of them.

  552. Love the scallop border punch!

  553. My favorite tool is the Big Shot. There are so many limitless things you can do with it. It is so easy to use and the results are great adding the WOW factor to any project I am creating. Also love your blog and your creativity. Thanks for the videos!

  554. I really have 2 tools that I just can’t live without. They are my Big Shot and punches. I love embossing on my cards and I love how easy the Big Shot makes it. I also love how punches make card making so easy but yet the cards look so involved.

  555. stephanie alread

    My favorite tool would be the big shot. I use it on almost all of my cards in some way, shape or form. Also, I love your postings. Your cards are very beautiful. I first saw one of your cards posted on Split Coast Stampers and checked out your blog from there. Thank you for sharing your talent!

  556. Without a doubt, my SU punches. I use the scallop one more than I ever thought I would πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for the chance to win this awesome candy for Halloween πŸ˜‰

  557. Charlotte Odom

    Mary, actually I love my StampAmaJig!! I love my other tools as well, but this one helps me out SO much!! I would love to have the blog candy! Cool giveaway!!

  558. I think it has to be a tie between my punches and big shot. I use both on almost every single project. Thanks for the chance to win some candy!!

  559. What would I do without the stamp-a-ma-jig? A wonderful tool for perfect placement! And I love the owl punch!

  560. I love my SU Tool Kit. (Is is still available?) I got it when I first started stamping and I wasn’t sure how much I’d use it…and I wanted to spend the money on stamps instead. However, I think I pull it out for every card. So nice to have everything together in a handy dandy kit. LOVE your blog and all your pretties!

  561. I love the stamp a ma jig. I use it on almost all of my card projects. Love your blog and videos! Thanks for all of your inspiration!

  562. Jeanie Garrity

    It’s a tie between my Big Kick and my punches. And I have to agree with the the other person who said YOU are her favorite!!!! Gorgeous blog candy–

  563. Hi Mary, I am a punch addict…just can’t get enough of them :o)I love your new wow video’s…

  564. I think I have to join the majority of other stampers who have left comments for you and say the Big Shot. It’s so versatile and easy to use, and the results are always awesome. I love your blog. Your work is outstanding. Thank you for this chance to win cool SU goodies.

  565. Hands down – the Big Shot!! So many options and textures to add to projects!

  566. Hi Mary-That’s a tough question…I have so many. I would say any of the SU punches. I can’t live without them. Thanks for the chance to win the candy. Happy Halloween! Karen ([email protected])

  567. Janice Miller

    Gotta say my very fave is the punches. I play with them alot so many choices and easy to use. Thank you for your great and pretty ideas.

  568. Mmm, that is a hard one, we paper crafters love our tools! But I think I’ll have to say border punches, they can really dress up a card. πŸ™‚

  569. My favorite tools are my punches and coordinating stamps. So easy to whip up a beautiful card. Thanks for the chance to win!

  570. I love the embossing folders. They can give any card some dimension in a flash with so many different options.

  571. Without a doubt….my pointy, sharp little scissors. I use them on everything I make. I have many punches, stamps, my cuttlebug, ect that I use, but I would be lost without my scissors.

  572. Melissa Mulder

    My favorite paper crafting tools are the punches. They are so versatile and can be transformed into so many things or used simply as they are. I just live them all!

  573. I love the scoring blade to use on my cutter. I never just fold the card stock or fold and use a bone folder. The scoring blade gives a nice crisp tidy fold line!

  574. I probably reach for my punches more, but still love to emboss so use my original Sizzix and embossing folders.

  575. It’s a tie between the owl punch and my Cuttlebug. If I had to choose one, I’d say it’s the Cuttlebug, since I can’t remember making a card without it, since I’ve gotten it.

  576. I love my xacto knifes.
    They come in handy for so many different things.
    I have one on my table all the time.

  577. Sue Robertson

    My favorite tools are the Stampin Up punches, I especially like the Bird Punch. I enjoy your site and all the great ideas you have.

  578. mary, I love all your creative cards and can’t wait to see what you come up with next. My favorite tool(s) are the punches, they are so versatile and you can make lots of wonderful creatures and things with them. love your site.

    kim

    my email is: [email protected]

  579. The punches are definately my favorite, so versatile, compact and easy to transport. Any time I need to make a quick card these are the first items I turn to. Thanks for all your stampin’ tips! Happy Halloween!

  580. It would have to be my Big Shot, I use it for everything. I love the embossing folders especially with the big shot. I love your one minute to wow videos. They are very helpful and great ideas. Thanks for all the great ideas.

  581. My favorite tool would be the Big Shot. Love, love, love it. Also use Stampin Up punches all the time. Your videos are awesome. Thank you for all of the great ideas.

  582. Roses are red

    I love all the tools
    and Stampin’ Up, too!!!

  583. My Cricut πŸ™‚ Hands down!

  584. Hi Mary,
    Yesterday I said that the punches were my favorite, but after thinking about it I couldn’t live without my stamp a ma jig. It is absolutely my favorite thing!
    Joan!!!

  585. BIG SHOT!!! I use it all the time and I don’t know I ever made cards or projects before it! It’s my favorite tool!!!

  586. I have to say my Big shot which I use a lot to either die cut or emboss but i love my punches too!!=)Thanks Mary

  587. My favorite tool is the one inch circle punch. I am holding out for a big Shot, though.

  588. Punches and big shot for me also! Love your blog Mary. Thanks for the inspiration.

  589. I have to say my big shot because I love the emboss folder and everything you can cut with it….

  590. Hi Mary, My favorite tools at the moment are my punches. Seems I reach for a different one every time I make a card. Love the crisp cuts I get with them.

  591. I love my punches and the Cuttlebug! Thank you for all your inspiration Mary! You are fantastic!!!! Hope I win….

  592. Now Mary, that is an unfair question–so many to choose from. Punches have to be #1, with the wonderful embossing folders a close second. But of course an all important papercrafting tool, are the ever so helpful blogs-especially yours! Thanks for keeping me motivated!

  593. I love punches! Especially the nesting ones. Quick, easy, no fail. I can’t wait to pick up some more so I can try out your vases!

  595. My favorite tool is the Big Shot. Luv the embossing folders; so beautiful on the cards. Thanks for a chance to win this awesome blog candy.

  596. My favorites are all the puches that Stampin Up has. The bird and owl are just two of the greatest ones they have.

  597. i just cannot do without my stampin up fiskars paper trimmer. I use it like for every project. Cutting, scoring, aligning everything.

    It is fabulous.

    I am a regular visit your blog daily.

  598. I just bought the tearing edge! I love that, but I love all the punches. My fave is the Owl punch! I had some bead boxes and grabbed my scrap paper box and punched out the owl in all colors and patterns. Its was nice to separate all the little pieces in to each different compartment.
    Love Love you Blog!

  599. My Big Shot and embossing folders are my favorites but also love the stamp a magig.

  600. Hey Mary,
    I’m sure if I had a big shot it’d be my favorite, but I’m not there yet, lol. I love my owl punch. I’ve loved him since I set eyes on him! I also like my circle scissor!

  601. I love my punches and use them on just about every card I create. Thanks for the chance to win.

  602. I love any punch!

  603. I am always reaching for a punch, and lately it is the ribbon scallop punch! Great blog, and super candy!

  604. That’d be my guillotine – I can’t get a straight edge without it! Thanks for the chance to win x

    Laura

  605. love your site and thanks for the blog candy, i cant pick just one tool, stampin up has so many good things, but i do use my punches and big shot quite a bit. so they must be my favorites.

  606. My favorite tool has to be the Big Shot. It does so many things that look complicated with such ease!! I really like how it makes giving small gifts to people easy!

  607. Lizzie Hernandez

    This isn’t maybe a very fancy choice, but for me, I have to get down to basics. So, I can’t do without my wonderful paper cutter & paper snips scissors. Both are within my reach & are used for every card I make. My cards are beautiful … I tell people “Mary Fish” taught me!

  608. I love punches! Just change the paper from solid to pattern or one pattern to another and you have a new look! Just discovered your site and I am inspired. Thanks!

  609. Terra Lambert

    Punches would also have to be my favorite, they make everything so simple! Thank you for all of the beautiful inspiration and wonderful tips!

  610. My favorite tools are my border punches. They add a lot of “punch” (pardon the fun) to anything I create.

  611. Wow!! This is a hard one. I’d have to go w/ the majority of people saying a toss up between my SU punches & Cuttlebug.

  612. esther schatts~

    I have to say the Big Shot…can’t seem to “finish” a card without it, PLUS, have been using it for fabric projects as well! so many toys, so little time!! nice candy, BTW!

  613. My favorite tool hands down are my snipets. I love them and I can get a LITTLE crazy when my kids get to them.

  614. jennifer lane

    I get excited every time I pull out my craft and paper scissors to cut ribbon! It’s like butter. Encourages me to use more ribbon too!

  615. Charl in So Cal

    My FAVE paper crafting tool is the Mat Pack. I use it to add that finishing touch to my projects!

  616. My tabletop cutter is my favorite tool. I have a half dozen cutters that I use for different purposes, but for hard-core cutting I always return to my tabletop cutter. I seldom get a crooked cut, and it’s always user error when I do.

  617. My favorite tools are the punches, couldn’t live without them!!!

  618. Hmmm, the one I couldn’t live with out would have to be my paper trimmer, but the one I love is my big shot!

  619. I would have to say my punches and then it would be the cuttlebug. I am so glad you started tech videos. They are so inspirational for me. Love them. Thanks for a chance to win you wonderful blog candy. Love that stamp set. It is on my wish list.

  620. It is really hard to limit my favorite tool to one item but I would have to say the punches are my favorite. Thanks for the chance to win the awesome blog candy! I hope I win..I hope I win!!

  628. Denise Heredia

    I really love all the tools Stampin Up has!! But I guess the Big Shot is the one that gets used the most!! Thank you Mary for your daily inspirations. Can’t skip a day to see what you come up with.

  629. Hey Mary, love your 1 min WOW card – clean & simple! my #1 tool I’m never without is my Fiskar paper trimmer for exact cutting on my cards, mats & scrapbook pages! Oooooh, that Blog candy looks yummy for an early christmas present! Your blogs are the best as I look at it daily for inspiration!

  630. On any given day this answer is likely to be different. I am scrapbooking right now, so my cricut is my fav. It’s hard to narrow down to just one though. Thanks for the blog candy. Looks really fun. Love the 2 minute WOW video and technique for sponging. Really must remember it from now on.

  631. I absolutely love your blog, it is by far the best I have found. I am going to have to go with my bigshot, it can be used for so many different things.

  632. I love my Cuttlebug. Die cutting and embossing are the best. I also love the fact that it works with all of the Big Shot items from Stampin’ Up. Love your blog. I check it daily.

  633. My favorite tool has to be all of the SU punches. Can’t live without them!

  634. Charlene Thomas

    My favorite is my paper cutter…couldn’t work without it. I am new to stampin’ up and I look online everyday at all the products available. Currently, I do not own anything from stampin up, but plan to very soon. I enjoy visiting your website, and you have wonderful ideas.

    Thank you,

    Charlene Thomas

    I would love a chance to win the blog candy. Have been eyeing that stamp set but can’t get it just now. Thanks for a chance to win and keep up the great video. LOVE them!

  642. Punches, punches, and more PUNCHES! Thanks for the inspiration as always, Mary!

  643. So hard to choose from so many wonderful tools! I love my Big Shot…..but I REALLY love my punches!

  644. My favorite cutting tool has to be the Crop-a-dile. It is the most versatile and amazing tool I have ever used. Besides punching the wholes for brads, etc. gone are the days of the loud hammer banging to close a brad.

  645. My Martha Stewart border punches–they are divine!

  646. Between the punches and the big shot is there any other tools? They both simplify papercrafting and cardmaking. Love your blog and everything that you share! Thanks for the chance to win.

  647. If I had to only pick one tool, it would definately be the Big Shot, but a close 2nd would be the punches. And I don’t have the Day of Gratitude stamp set, but I’ve been eyeing it up, so winning it would be awesome!

  648. My favorite tool is the Big shot..I never dreamed I’d use it as much as I do!

  649. I was sure I posted on here last night but don’t see it so forgive me if this is a duplicate. My favorite tool (couldn’t live without) is my paper cutter, with my Big Shot being a very close second. Thanks for the chance to win your blog candy ~ thoroughly enjoy you daily blog posts and creativity. (Hoping I’ve signed up for your Twitter tips but now I can’t be too sure I did that right. One might say I’m sometimes technically challenge.)

  650. Vicki--arcticvic

    my favorite(s) and all the punches. they can be used in so many ways. I absolutely love your creativity, professionalism, and direct selling skills. You go girl! I have difficulty with the selling part.

  651. I love the stamp-a-ma-jig! No messed up stamping!! Thanks for the opportunity for sweet blog candy!!

  652. I love my stampamajig. Easy to use and it has saved many cards from my shaky uneven hand.

  653. My favorite tool is the cutter kit. Roughing up the edges of a matting piece of card stock really adds some great texture to a project.

  654. Sherry Williams

    my favorite tool are my punches. i use them on every single things i make. πŸ™‚
    what a nice giveaway. happy halloween!!!

  655. I too love the Big Shot’s embossing folders. I’ve got my fingers crossed I win because I absolutely love the stamp set you are giving away. Thanks for all your neat tips too. Awesome.

  656. Hi Mary,
    Great card! You and Ann are my top two!!! I still say my stamp a ma jig is my best tool. If the stamps aren’t right, then nothing else is right.
    Joan!!!

  657. Denise Willerton

    I have so many favourites, but I guess if I had to narrow it down, it would have to be my big shot and dazzling diamonds and…oh ya, only one! Thanks for this opportunity!

  658. I love the embossing folders with the Big Shot. I really enjoy getting on your website everyday and seeing what you post. Thanks so much, you are very inspiring!

  659. My favorite stamping tools are the punches! Whatever project I am making, it always is fun to be able to include something that requires a punch! I don’t have them all yet, but I am working on it! Thanks for all your hard work Mary, it is appreciated and enjoyed by me every day!

  660. I think my favorite paper crafting too is a trimmer. If you have one of those, you can do tons of things!! πŸ™‚ And I loooove this stamp set! It’s beautiful. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the awesome giveaway and for always giving us such gorgeous ideas!

  661. Tammy Swiggum

    I absolutely love the clear mount blocks and stamp sets! They make for some very interesting same combinations. You can mix other sets together….simply said…the possibilities are endless! And they are of the greatest quailty and easy to use!

  662. I absolutely love the ornament punch at this time of the year. It makes Christmas cards so much quicker. I do also enjoy the Big Shot though.

  663. Renae Bentley

    This is a tough one and I must say I am a very simple card maker who loves color…the favorite is a versa mark pad so I can actually DOUBLE my colors and hues with one easy step and the punches are a second runner up for texture. Love your daily inspiration and thanks for all you do Mary.
    Renae Bentley

  664. My favorite tools are the punches. I just want you to know that I love your cards. You are such an inspiration. Please don’t ever stop posting or I will be lost.

  665. I would have to say my big shoot and the punches. I love using them all of the time, although I have a circut they are quicker at times and my project gets done sooner. Thanks for a chance to win

  666. I LOVE the Big Shot! There are so many things you can do with it.

  667. Thanks for the tips…and the chance to win blog candy! I enjoy your creativity–thank you for sharing so generously!

  668. My favorite tool is a toss-up between the Stamp-a-ma-jig and the Big Shot. With the addition of clear mounts, it has decreased my usage of the SAMJ, but still couldn’t live without it. Thanks for the chance to win great candy and for all the inspiration you share.

  669. My favorite are all the SU punches. Love all your cards they are a great inspiration and I’ve learned so much from your videos. Thanks

  670. Joellyn Whitehead

    Since I just got done making some cute owl treat bag toppers (using Top Note die) and am working right now on my first rag quilt bag, I’m going to have to go with the Big Shot! TFS all of your great ideas!

  671. My favorite tool… Have to go with the consensus here and go with my Big Shot. A close second is my Big Bite. I use those two things ALL the time, and together, too! Thanks for the blog candy opportunity, love your blog!

  672. Without a doubt it is my BIG SHOT….I don’t know how I ever stamped without it. It is so versatile, user friendly and travels well in it’s “doctor’s” bag.

  673. I absolutely love the big shot! It has revolutionized my stamping! I love your blog. All of your projects are so inspiring!

  674. Big Shot or punches…Big Shot or punches…Big Shot or punches???? Probably punches because I use them most often. I use a lot of embossing folders which is what made me get a Big Shot. (I, too, have an electronic die cutting machine that makes a distinctive sound…) Thanks for the offering of wonderful blog candy, and all your great ideas…

  675. I’d have to say my favorite (aside from my Big Shot) is the Stamp-a-ma-jig…tried and true, it does help me get my images where I want them the first time and every time! Thanks for your inspirations!

  676. I would have to say my punches are my favorite.

  677. My favorite paper crafting tool is the Big SHot..I love the dies and how easy it is to make cards! (and lots of cards!) Your blog makes it easy to get ideas!

  678. I love Stampin Up Wheels, they do so much!!! I love your blog you always have wuch wonderful ideas. Thanks so much for all you do…

  679. I love my distressing tool! Just love the look it adds so simply to papers.

  680. Hello Mary! I would have to say the Big Shot. My second favorite would probably be the mat pack. Thanks so much for the chance to win:)

  681. The punches are my favorite with the big shot as a very close second. I love your blog!! All your work is so PRETTY!
