OOOOOOOOO Super!!!! Yummers! Thanks, Mary!
My fave technique is paper piecing because it just looks so darn cool! But my most used technique is paper piercing :)
Off to spread the word! HUGS

Jacilynn said...

Yummy Candy Mary! I love inking all over my pages and cards and sewing. I'm equally obsessed with both!

Catherine said...

You're giving away more goodies?!? You are crazy generous! Since I won Flutter just last month, please don't enter me in the drawing. I just wanted to play along with the question! :D
Not that I've done it much, but I'd have to agree with Kadie and say the paper piecing. It totally changes the look of a stamp. What am I waiting for??? LOL!
Hugs,
Catherine

Sandra MacLean said...

OOoo!! What delicious candy Mary!! I want to play with that glitter! My favorite technique besides watercoloring has to be sponging/distressing. Love how it gives every card just that little bit extra! I've got my fingers crossed!! I'll add your candy to my blog too Mary!

Diana said...

GORGEOUS CANDY!!!

My favorite technique - inking. I think it helps to set the layers apart, it helps to cover any mistakes you might have made, and I think it helps to link things together.

I'll post your candy details on my blog tomorrow!

Creepy Glowbugg said...

Right now, my favorite technique is coloring with my Copics. I am still learning how to get nice effects with these fantastic pens!

Your candy is on my blog. What a great selection of "sweets"!

MiamiKel said...

What positively delicious candy -- you have a generous heart! Hmmm, my favorite technique has to be paper-piecing - I am still learning and trying to figure it out but love the process!

Mrs Weyremaster said...

I love your blog, its so cool, and your candy looks scrumptious.
My favourite technique is colouring with alcohol markers, i'm having so much fun developing my shading skills, and they are perfect for The Greeting Farms stamps which i adore :)

Thank you for sharing you wonderful creations with us, you are truly inspiring.

My favorite technique at the moment is coloring in images with my Copic markers. I'm still learning how to use them for shading, etc and having a great time with it. My next favorite technique is following a sketch.

StampingJan said...

My favorite technique right now is embossing with my texture plates from various companies (Cuttlebug, Stamping Up!, Fiskar's, and Sizzix). Then I use decorative paper for an added touch! I love it! There are endless possibilities!

Char in So Cal said...

Oh what a great candy chance! A ribbon maker - whoohoooo!!! I suck at making bows, no joke. I work for an hour to get them to look decent.

Since we now know bows aren't my favorite, I'd have to say distressing and inking are my current favs. You can get so many looks from that.

Off to post you on my blog!

Hello Mary,
you have a fantastic blog! I am so in love with the Greeting Farm's stamps and you make such beautiful cards with them... I'd love to be a part of your candy draw too, I popped up a note in my sidebar of your candy and you definitely go to my Google Reader too :) I can never get enough TGF!

Stupid me, forgot to tell about my favorite card making technique... Well, I'm really new to this hobby all in all, and I haven't yet tried embossing, which looks absolutely great in many different ways (textures and accents...). That is what I'd *love* to try, but so far my favorite technique is definitely paper stressing, it doesn't need special equipment - I do my edgings with a paper knife. It makes such a nice vintage look on papers and you can play with colors too.

xx,
nunt

I'm not sure what is my favourite technique since I've only been making cards for about six months and everything is new to me. But I do use decorative scissors a lot so maybe it's cutting paper to bits and pieces :-)

Awsome candy!!
My favourite technique to use when card making is heat embossing (tho since my heat gun melted I haven't been able to do it for awhile... sigh!)
But I love not only the look of heat embossing, but also that it gives the card a raised texture.

Thanks so much for the chance to win.

What fabulous candy ~ I've linked your giveaway on my blog. I think my favorite technique is coloring with copics (now that I have them, I don't know how I got by without them). I love the shading you can get with them as well as the streak free coloring. I also love paper piecing, and don't nearly do that enough, but I love how you can incorporate your background DP into your image with it.

Thanks for the chance to win these goodies :)

Help I'm lost and I don't know what I'm doing.

One of my favorite techniques is using black and white (sometimes with a punch of color, but only one). Love the simplicity of it.

Have been following the hop and checking out what everyone is doing. I need to find more time (seriously).
