  4. My favorite embellishment is ….. glitter — I’m known as the glitter queen around my stamp friends –Ha!! I like to use it to highlight, outline, and fill in certain images — I love the transparent glitters, rather than the opaque ones. Well, there you have it. Hope mine gets picked. I stumbled onto your blog and just absolutely LOVE it. Hugs, Syl xxxooo

    I was thrilled to see our half-back adhesive Rhinestone and Pearl jewels this year – I can hardly make a card without them:) I find it easiest to use my paper piercing tool to get them off of their paper backing (and if I want to cut the “strips” of jewels, I just use my hobby blade to cut them apart first!)

  187. I love to use ribbon, but inherited a lot from my Mom’s craft collection which I felt I needed to use. So haven’t bought much of the SU ribbon. Would love to have some to use as a coordinating embellishment. Thanks for offer.

  188. The ribbon & seam binding – so versatile!

  189. I LOVE glitter! I’m always disappointed when I make a card and can’t find a good way to add a little glitter!

  190. I don’t know why, but eyelets have always been my favorite embellishment. I once made a card with 21 eyelets on it! I think it’s the way they squish a little when you set them with a hole punch. I love the way you often add a row of 2 or 3 eyelets to your cards, Mary. So pretty! I also love ribbon and I’ve been dying to try the pearls. Thanks for the chance at candy. Love your blog.

  191. I’d have to say it is a tie between glitter and ribbon. Either of these can do so much for a card. Thanks for offering blog candy!

  247. I would have to say that my favorite embellishment is RIBBON. It just adds so much to a card OR project.
    Susan B.

  248. I like to use jewels on my cards. It’s all I need to feel the card is complete, and it is small and sutle, but perfect whether you use 1, 2 or 3. Next is ribbon and then brads.

  249. I must admit my latest addiction, the cute little pearls and rhinestone stickers. So easy, subtle, but bling-e, at the same time.

  250. Margie Porreco

    Love all the embellishments, but my favorite are the pearls.

  251. Pearls or rhinestons…everything looks better with pearls or rhinestones. =)

  252. I have now become a fan of any “bling” in the form of pearls and jewels. With 3 young boys at home, I haven’t let my “girly” side show as much, but that’s changing with the bling!

  253. I love using ribbon. When I make a card that does not have it, I seem to always wonder what is missing. Love your blog and can’t wait to look and see what is new each day!!

  255. I love ribbon and rhinestones, although I tend to hoard my ribbon cause I don’t want to use it up! haha

  256. WOW! What can I say. I love SU embellishments, too. Just about every card has to have some kind of extra thing on it to make it stand out. I think my favorites are the brads. I use them all the time. Either the brads or the little faux pearls and diamonds. Love them!!

  257. The 3/8 tafetta ribbon for sure. I’m so glad they keep adding new colors. Razzelberry and Marina Mist are probably my favorites, but I love the subtle hue of all of them …

  258. Ribbon- hands down! It adds texture, depth, and has a wow factor that dresses up even the simplest card! Ooh la la!

  259. I love all embellishments, but I almost always use ribbon in all of my projects; brads and rinestones are a close second though. Thanks again for the chance to win such a great prize.

  260. I’m a ribbon gal too! Thanks for sharing your talent!

  261. Love love your site,ribbons and pearls are my favs.

  273. Lately my embelishment addiction is ribbon!

  274. annemarie hocking

    Ribbon – I’m a “Ribbon-aholic”

  275. For sure it would be a tie between ribbon and pearls. That would be followed by lace, ric rac and buttons. But then I like brads and eyelits. Oh and Glitter is fun too…………..

  276. Brenda Meadows

    hmmmm hard to choose between the pearls & seam binding ribbon!

  277. I don’t know if this counts as an embellishment, but I absolutely adore the Big Shot’s Top Note. I find myself using it again and again – both on the front and inside cards. Thanks for the chance to win!

    “over embellishing”.

  288. I love the pearls…what a great thing to have.


  289. I guess as so many of your other followers, I’d have to say ribbon since it is one of the “add-on’s” I use on almost all of my cards and projects. It just is that “finishing touch” in most instances. Although I do love the pearls and rhinestones quite a bit.
    Thanks for all your inspiration in sharing your lovely cards, I really enjoy looking at them.

  296. Love the pearls! Very close second is the seam binding and the antique style brads! Gorgeous!

  297. If you could see all the ribbon in my craft room you would think that was my favorite, but actually I just collect it and rarely use it. I do love and use the pearls though.

  298. Ribbon is my absolute favorite embelly. I very rarely make a card without ribbon. My second fav is a pearl sticker. They are getting hard to find in different sizes. Would love this selection of pearls. Have a great day!!!

  305. I love embellishments of every kind. Each card dictates what I will use. But if I had to state a favorite it is between rhinestones and ribbons.
