  177. Well, ribbon isn’t all that “blingy”, but I do think almost every card needs it in order to look really “finished”. I do also love the pearls and rhinestones, especially to top off a butterfly, or make a flower really pop!

  178. I add a little dab of bling to everything I make – rhinestones are my favorites. Love your blog – thanks for sharing your video of your stamping studio – it’s amazing!! Thanks for the blog candy op!

  180. Kristina MacKeen

    I love adding brads, rhinestones and pearls to cards! The new bakers twine is also a favorite. A lot of what I use depends on whether I’m mailing or hand delivering the cards.

  181. I’m still fairly new at card making. I have used handmade flowers, glitter, and now heat embossing to add bling to my cards. I can’t wait to get my hands on some dazzling diamonds though – I have seen that used a ton of times in different videos – its so shimmery! Wouldn’t dazzling diamonds just jazz up those mini clothespins nicely? Thanks for the opportunity!

  182. Melissa Caufield

  183. I love the library clips. And my new favorite is coloring the pearls to match!! Love it!

  184. Without a doubt, my favorite bling is pearls! I use different sizes and love that I can change the color! I LOVE owls – crossing my fingers. . .

  204. I love the basic rhinestones AND dazzling diamonds glitter!
    Thanks for this chance to win.

  205. Sandy (redstampinsam)

    My favorite way to “bling-up” my cards is to add glitter! Whether you add a little or a lot — it always brings a smile! The beautiful new ribbon in the holiday mini beg to be combined with a glitter embellished card!

  206. Now that’s an easy one for a change – there is no question, the Silver Glimmer Paper in the Holiday Mini. Thank you for all your inspiration and for giving me the chance to win this amazing blog candy.

  207. I love embossing for the over-all pop and rhinestones for the eye catchers. Thanks for asking ;o)

    Thanks also for the video tour of your stamping zone. Loved it! I’ve been looking for the cubes you use for your markers and haven’t had any luck. I am currently standing them up and but I have been looking for something to change because I’ve noticed they don’t work properly! Please share where you purchased them!!

  208. I love using ribbon. It’s an easy way to make a card look great! Thanks for the chance to win!

  209. Carol Carriveau

    Thank you for offering to share the goodies, Mary! I personally enjoy using both ribbon and the sparklies (rhinestones and pearls) to enhance my cards…doesn’t take too much to make a splash (especially since I am not great at coloring!)…..also embossing – simple yet great touch!

  210. Thanks for the opportunity. Have to say that I’m all about the owl. He is darling.

  211. My new favorite product is the Basic Rhinestones. I had never used them until some projects early this summer and now I love them!! Thank you for the blog candy opportunity.

  212. The blog candy is great!!!
    I love adding pearls and rhinestones depending on the style of the card. Dazzling details also add the little extra to make a card more special.
    You are the queen of the “wow” factor and show us how to add the little something to create the most beautiful cards. Thanks for all the videos and card samples they are awesome!

  213. Kimberly Meyer

  217. nancy littrell

    My absolute Favorite way to add Bling……SU’s Basic Rhinestones. I use them constantly just as is or add to my favorite SU Antique Brads. Like everything SU the Basic Rhinestones (and Pearls)are such High Quality πŸ™‚ Every one of my girls have ordered both these Basic Essential Embellishments too πŸ™‚

  218. I love to add glitter of some kind, somewhere to make it blingy. Love your tips and ideas!

  219. Linda Ressetar

    Great Blog Candy !! Would love to win. Being older I have to say than I am more of a ribbon person than a bling girl !! I love all the fall colors of ribbon especially the pumpkin pie ! Thanks for the chance to win.

  220. Samantha Lisic

    My personal favorite bling to add are the basic pearls. They are so me and just make every project look so cute and elegant. Although with how much I love the holidays the mini jingle bells are a close second!!

  221. I love the antique brads, with the pearls & rhinestones a close second!

  222. I really love to use SU buttons! They add shine and shimmer to any project! And I am a pearl lover too!

  223. “Diamonds” are this girl’s best friend! Thanks for the chance to win.

  224. My favorite way to use bling is on the center of flowers and to accent punched shapes/cut out from big shot (butterflies, flowers, etc). I use them as centers for the flowers and to add interest on embossed shapes on cards/3D projects. Your blog ROCKS!

  225. I love the rhinestones. But I stamped last night and put pearls on just about everything I did!

  226. Lucinda L. Brown

    My favorite has to be the little pearls and rhinestones….Ribbon is always good, too. I check your blog dailly…..Love the “One Minute to Wow” tips…Many thanks!

  227. Heather Donahue

    I love anything sparkly! Oh, and ribbon!!

  228. I moved from Tucson to the White Mountains a few years ago. I love SU products!!! I have never won anything, but I keep trying—Anyone that does scrapbooking or cardmaking needs to have pearls and rhinestones.

  229. I really like the pearls!!

  230. I love bling on cards but don’t really have a favorite. I like rhinestones and pearls and also like to use dazzling diamonds to give a card sparkle. You can’t go wrong with beads, buttons, clips, etc. either!

  231. Love the bling. I use rhinestones and glitter as my “go to” bling. Your use of bling is always spot on!

  232. I love gemstones! I almost always use them on cards. I put them below a sentiment, in the middle of flowers,in between scallops, wherever I can!

  233. My favorite way to add “bling” to a card is by adding the basic pearls! I just started using them, and I love them!

    Awesome giveaway! Thanks for all you do!

  234. Wonderful giveaway. I love to add pearls or gems.

  235. I put the Rhinestones and Pearls on everything….Then the shimmer spray is a must on much of what i do!!!

    Thanks Mary!


  236. chrystal miller

    my favorite are the jewels or the pearls…thanks for the chance to win

  237. Rhinestones and glitter are my favorites!

  238. I really like to add the SU pearls! They really add that “extra something” to my cards.

  239. I like the Basic Rhinestones. Cute, simple, with just the perfect amount of shine!

  240. I’m a “rhinestone cowgirl” kinda gal, too! But lately I am using more pearls. They add such an elegant touch. I love this stamp set. Thanks for the chance to win it. And SU ribbon – my favorite!

  241. Lately I have been addicted to Smooch Spritz. It’s something about adding a little bit of sparkle to a finished project. I can’t wait to use it on my Christmas cards!

  242. I LOVE the rhinestones, but to add my zing….I color with Copics!!!!! make them match is the way to go. Bedazzled!

  243. I am SO excited about all the owls! They are my absolute favorite! And I love using the Dimensionals with them and layering them! I dress them for different holidays and occasion, too! I know you don’t see the dimensionals, but they add so much to my projects!!

  244. Glitter Glitter Glitter! Loving the Champagne glass right now.

  245. Rhinestones & pearls are my favorite bling that I use on almost every card!! Along with glitter!! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  246. My fav way to bling up a project is using mini-pearls or mini rhinestones. A little pop of texture or shine give my projects the perfect amount of wow.

  247. Love the pearls and rhinestones, but I find it difficult to make a card without SU ribbon, so that must be my favorite “bling”!!!

  248. I’m a rhinestone girl myself!!

  249. I use a ton of pearls on my cards and I love adding a touch of bling by the sentiment. Thanks for the chance to win πŸ™‚

  250. Thank you for change to win blog candy!
    I’m a classic gal: My favorite bling are pearls and occasionally dazzling diamonds. I’ll try using champagne mist on my holiday projects to add a bit more glimmer.

  251. There is nothing more versatile than basic pearls. Just like my own set that seems to compliment everything I wear! Stampin’ Up pearls are wonderful as is but have the ability to take on any color necessary. How can a good stamper live without them!!! Thanks for your wonderful blog. Your cards are always a pleasure to look at.

  252. I especially like whimsical brads, but this time of year, I just love using crystal effects on my fall leaves!

  253. I love all the items in the giveaway! Thank you for the chance to win. I do love me some pearls on my cards. Have a great weekend!

  254. although a little messy, i love glitter to add the wow bling factor on my project. thanks for the chance to win those great items!

  255. charlene soco

    Hi Mary! I agree that rhinestones are a great way to add some extra “bling” to cards and projects. But one of favorite things lately is to use glitter with the heat and stick powder, which works as a really great adhesive! And thanks for all the wonderful things you post on your blog! Happy Friday!

  256. MY favorite way to add bling is the basic Rhinestones! thanks for offering the blog candy!

  257. Denise Heredia

    Thank you for the chance to win some great loot! I really like all bling pearls, rhinestones, buttons etc… But right at this moment I’m loving the glitter paper.

  258. Melissa Ilagan

    I love the rhinestones and the jingle bells, they are so darling and festive. The recepients of my cards know they are getting something special.

  259. Love your Blog!! It is one of my daily stops!! Thanks for the inspiration! I’m a punch-aholic so in addition to always using punches, I’m a brad “go-to” kind of gal. Brads always add that extra little bit to my cards. Thanks again for such a delightful site!!!

  260. I’m loving the Dazzling Details!! Especially in my Wild West Alphabet. Thank you so much for the daily inspiration~

  261. Thanks for the Chance to win… I look forward to your blog daily… you have such neat ideas… Thanks
    Melissa In WI

  262. Though I love to use rhinestones, I cannot make a card that doesn’t include ribbon!

  263. I love the Basic Rhinestones too. And I always love to add a little shimmer spray.

  264. Thanks for offering blog candy again. I love “BLING”!
    I love rhinestones and pearls and dazzling diamonds. I will add bling to just about every card. Bling to me is that extra little pizzaz that says ” I really care “

  265. Kathy Simpson

    Hi Mary,
    I love to dazzle up my projects with some “DAZZLING DIAMONDS! Rhinestones are another favorite and then I like to go to thrift stores and yard sales and pick up old jewelry and bobbles to add to those fun ideas.

    Kathy Simpson

  266. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the rhinestones and pearls. I also love to color them to match the card. A close second are the antique brads. Love your daily posts alos.

  267. Dazzling Details glitter glue is my favorite!! It adds just the right amount of bling and it is so cost effective! You could create hundreds of cards with just one bottle!

  268. i love the new stampin up jingle bells, esp for those Christmas cards I have to make πŸ™‚ thanks for doing the giveaway!

  269. Leslie Nyholm

    I don’t have to much bling to work with, but I think the “Brads” I use do the trick!

  270. I *heart* the pearls.

  271. What a great giveaway! Love your blog even though I don’t comment often. Adding bling is my favorite thing to spruce up my cards, especially by adding a tiny pearl or rhinestone in the center of a flower. Also hard to consider a card complete without ribbon somewhere. Thanks for the blog candy offer!

  272. Helen Schadegg

    It’s hard to say what my one favorite thing is. I have had a love afair with Stickles and now I can demo at least one flavor to my customers. THAT makes me smile! Got to love rhinestones and pearls though!

  273. I love it all but if I have to pick one it would be the rhinestones. You can leave them like they are or color them to match whatever color your using. The jingle bells are also adorable.

  274. Elizabeth Misner

    I love the Rhinestones. I like to color the backs to give them color. I also like theglitter paper, but wish they would get some additional colors.

  275. Mary, I have purchased almost all the Stampin’ Up accessories that make cards “pop”. I’m with you, however. I LOVE rhinestones.
    Diane G.

  276. My bling would probably be a choir if it were to sing, as I like to add it in quantities … the bling does not stand along on my card creations (grin). If one rhinestone is good, two are better, and six are fabulous!

  277. I love rhinestones and gems!! Also, buttons and ribbon but ot sure if that counts as “bling”! I love glitter too just wish it weren’t so messy!!

  278. I love me some rhinestones, that’s for sure. I think the tiny jingle bells are very cute for the holidays, too. So much for to have a little chance to win some fun stuff from SU!

  279. Ribbon & a punched image are pobably my go embellishment. I’d love to win s set!

  280. Mary, I have purchased almost all the SU accessories to add “sparkle” to cards. I must say I’m with you-love those bright and colorful rhinestones that automatically brighten up my cards-LOVE bling.
    Diane G.

  281. Fabulous give-a-way! I’m very new to crafting so my go to bling item has to be super easy to use, hence my addiction to the pearls and rhinestones! I just tried clear heat embossing and enjoy the effect but not the mess. Thanks for your generosity!

  282. I love rhinestones, pearls and glitter, but not all at once. This is such a great prize – thanks for the chance to win!

  283. I love bling…but simple. One single rhinestone or pearl often adds the final touch to a stamped image.


  285. love adding the bling with the ones from Michaels. Havent tried the ones from SU!

  286. Rhinestones and pearls. The absolute best.

  287. Charlotte Coombes

    My favorite is the rhinestones as well, but when doing guy cards, I go for texture. I love Su’s new striped folder! Thanks for the chance at blog candy! πŸ™‚

  288. Mary, thanks for this opportunity for
    Goodies. My favorite way to Wow! Is S U
    wonderful embossing powders.
    Love everything you do!

  289. Christy Miller

    Love blog candy!! My favorite bling would also have to be the rhinestones or the pearls. I have been using a lot of the champagne mist on my Halloween projects and it adds a little flare!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  290. I like the clear colored rhinestones and pearls the best. I love the tiny clothespins too.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  291. I love embossing powder, punches, and hardware. I think they make a card come alive — letting the thoughts I wish to convey come alive. They allow me to express the real me letting my real personality that is sometimes hidden behind my shyness to shine through. I am so grateful that discovering the Stampin’ Up way of cardmaking let’s me express the real me that others do not always see.

  292. I have always loved ‘bling’ in everything…my cards are no exceptions!!! I love to have rhinestones and pearls and sometimes both on my cards!!! Thanks for all your inspiration Mary!!

  293. Gloria Jacobs

    Buttons and bows and lots of embossing with the powders. Love your blog. Thanks

  294. I too love to add a few pearls or rhinestones to a card. I’ve never used any clips so they might be fun to try and my neices who come stamp with me always add bling and they were so tickled to see the owl stuff the last time they were over.

  295. I have always loved to add some Dazzling Diamonds to bling up my cards, but now with the Dazzling Details from the Holiday mini available I have found a new ‘Dazzling’ best friend!!

  296. I LOVE the Dazzling Details!!! Easy peasy and sparkly!

  297. I’ve just learned a new technique using the Basic Rhinestones – you can color them with a marker to coordinate with your card! Thank you for the chance to win your blog candy πŸ™‚

  298. Bonnie Ellsworth

    Fun stuff! I like brads even though they are not particularly sparkly.

  299. I love to add the pearls and rhinestones to the centers of flowers to add a little something! Thanks for the chance to win!

  300. I’m a pearls girl myself. I love the soft look. If I want something more I’ll add rhinestones – lots of them!

  301. My favorite way to add bling is with Stampin Up’s Dazzling Diamonds glitter. It adds that great sparkle to any card.

  302. My undiagnosed OCD requires clean lines and not a lot of stuff in my life or on my cards so I like to use bling – mainly pearls or brads as a small unexpected part of my cards. I have a new craft room and used your idea for punch storage except I put my rods (cheap rods and hardware from a big box store)on the insides of my cabinet doors -that OCD thing again. Love your blog.

  303. I would have to agree with the Rhinestones or buttons; both are favorites to add a little fun!!

  304. Carol Lawrence-Costley

    Just call me “magpie” I gotta have some bling! I use rhinestones, pearls and glitter when I make cards or as I scrapbook!

  305. cynthia richards

    My favorite bling is pearls. I love to add them to flowers.

  309. I love that stamp set!! Thank you for the generous give away!!
    My favorite way to add bling are the rhinestones. I think they are so simple but add so much to a project.
    Have a great Friday!

  310. Stickles is still my number one go to for bling. I have 6 colors but go to the clear most often. Thanks for the chance! πŸ™‚

  311. Gotta have that Bling or just ain’t a card.. I love to use rhinestones and am just discovering the glimmer paper; the red gives such a wow effect as a boarder/mat on the front of cards.

    I also would like to know how you address some bling or pop on a masculine card. I like Cam idea of the mini cloths pin, color them or even add a bit of dp on them.
    Thank you for the chance to win some candy..

  312. I love all of it. Mostly ribbon, buttons, and pearls.

  313. Lynne Wascher

    I am really using my rhinestones & pearls (and I love your trick with the Sharpies). I have a pack with 30 different colors so I can match just about anything.

  314. Janet Swofford

    I really like the rhinestones and the pearls but my go-to bling is still Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I guess I’m just old school:-)
    Thanks for the chance to win your awesome blog candy! I love your blog and I look forward to seeing your new creations everyday. I especially enjoy your “One Minute to Wow” videos. Such great ideas to take my stamping to another level. Thanks for all of the inspiration!

  361. Lynne Hurlburt

    It really might not be a bling, but our stamping group always incorporates at least one button to our cards to each other. A few years ago when SU came out with buttons, I asked one of the girls if she had used any yet and she replied ” She hadn’t found anyone button worthy yet” thus the tradition was started with our group. Thanks for the chance to win the blog candy. Have a great week-end. Hugs n’ Stuff, Lynne

  362. My favorite has to be Stickles ~ I think i have it in every color ~ Have a Great Weekend and thanks for the chance to win these great things

  366. I love ALL you do!!
    My favorite blings are ribbon and rhinestones!!
    Thanks for sharing all the gorgeous things you do!!

  367. Karilyn Moeller

    I love bling! Sometimes just a tiny touch will really make a project “pop”. Adding just one or two jewels, pearls, a touch of glitter or highlighting with a glitter pen, can turn a simple card into a “gem”! Love your daily posts.

  368. Thanks for the chance to win some great items! I, too, love the rhinestones and the pearls! They are a must for cards and scrapbooking!

  369. It is pearls all the way for me. I always use them. They completely set off all of my projects.

  370. I love it all…buttons, ribbon, and now I want to try the dazzling details in the mini. Love your projects. Thank you for this chance.

  371. Just a ‘bling’ note. I absolutely love Dazzling Diamonds and simply ‘bling’ cannot over use that product. It’s perfect! At work yesterday, I guess ‘bling’ I was standing in the sun and my co-workers asked me, “Where’d all that glitter on your face come from”? I had been ‘blinging’ before work and evidently touched my face. Yikes. I mean ‘bling’.

    Jan E.

    I love glitter especially SU dazzling diamonds. They are a must to have.

  376. I love the Shimmer paint, esp. Frost White. Thanks

  377. Since I seem to not think about the bling until the card is done, I really love the rhinestones and pearls. I was so happy when SU came out with them!

  378. I like to use old jewelry, pieces that aren’t wearable anymore and use any of the charms or stones that are left.

  379. I love the mini jingle bells and the rhinestones.

  380. I am with the rhinestones.

  381. Hi Mary,
    There are so many bling items I like to use. My favorite is the dazzling diamonds glitter, but then I use the rhinstones and pearls right along with it.


  382. My favorite is the pearls or rhinestones but I’m going to be using those mini jingle bells and I think they will be adorable!!! Thanks for the chance to win, I love this set!

  383. I love the rhinestones and pearls! I also love to add bling by embossing with irridescent ice. Have a great day Mary!

  384. My favorite bling this time of year is either red glimmer paper or mini jingle bells. My “go to” bling throughout the year are rhinestones. I love how you can color them to coordinate with any project.

  385. Buttons, baby!!!

  386. That’s a toss up, pearls if I want to “sophisticate” it a bit and Crystal Effects to just make it Pop. Those are my 2 favs, can’t live without them!!!

  387. Kathy Hendrey

    My fave is still the vintage brads, but I also love basic pearls. Thanks for inspiring me with your studio. I am using a lot of your ideas to reorganize my craft area and make my supplies easier to find and reach! Now to work on an area to take photos!

  388. My son got married this past summer and I made the invitations. One pearl was just enough to add “wow” to the invitations and make them special.

    I love your creations. I look forward to every day getting the emails and the new projects. Its very inspiring thank you.

  395. Pearls and ribbons are my go-to for bling. However I have a hard time to use these blings when making masculine cards. So I found an alternative, which is these mini clothespins. I would love to try that and see how that goes. Thanks for a chance to the blog candy. What’s your favorite bling when doing masculine cards?

    My favorite bling right now is scrunched up and distressed flower punch outs with centered rhinestones and ribbon. Thank you, Mary, for all of your designs. I always check your website before I make any card.

  401. I simply can’t finish a card without ribbon and usually some sort of bead, rhinstone or pearl!!!

  403. It’s not really “bling”, but my Club girls know we rarely complete a project without adding a pearl from the basic jewels collection!

  404. Mary, I also love Stampin Up’s rhinestones, but I most consistently use a shimmer spray to add some “zing” to my cards. Champagne Mist mixed with alcohol adds a wonderful glittery effect. A Frost White mixture adds shimmer.
