I'm with Joan on the gingham - I love it and use it all the time,and I DO NOT do "country." If Martha likes it, maybe it's on its way up!

I am still developing my style, but here are my likes and dislikes right now

I Like very much:
Nesties in basic geometric shapes, pendants and labels
MS punches (love)
SU plain colored CS
Copics
JustRite stamps
Magnolias- actually Just Tildas
Red rubber stamps
Botanical , birds and nature stamps



Dislikes:
Wide bulky bows
Cluttered cards with too many layers or embellishments on them.
Distressed paper (really hate)
Vintage images
Multiple layers of different DP that seems to clash with each other
Buttons, twine, charms or rick rack/ lace that belongs on clothing
Sewing on cards
Cutesy stamps
Stamps that look like a child's drawing
I don't want the specialty shaped dies such as eggs, ducks etc. They are too limiting

Addicted to:
October Afternoon papers
Fun-to-color images
Dogs (I would really like to be more specific and put "corgi" but I've only found about 2 corgi stamps ever, so I can't say that's a "trend")
colored cardstock as card base
Nesties Label One
Big scallop borders and nesties
glossy accents (which is new to me since I just bought my first bottle a couple weeks ago--what took me so long? Same with heat embossing, too)
The bigger polka dot embossing folder-I think by Sizzix?
What The Font website. Upload a picture of a font, shazaam, it gives you a pretty close, if not exact, match.
Fun happy images like Snoopy, classic cars, pure innocence, kraftin kimmie
sketch challenges
VSN
Winning a challenge, being selected to VSN honor gallery, people being published for the first time, being listed in the favorites thread, or heck, just getting a comment or a favorite on one of your cards in the gallery

Meh...not so much:
People who can color way better than me, and therefore make my coloring look inferior
Stamps with images done by a 3-year-old, or someone posing as a three-year-old (note: I don't mind the ones that are intentionally done like that, just the ones that are trying to sell them as real grown-up images if you know what I mean?)
collage-y look
comic sans
stores that are putting out way too many releases, which leads them to put out not-so-great sets or putting out 8 sets that really just variations on the same theme and not innovative (I'm not saying I could be innovative every month, but that also could be why I don't run a stamp company)
DT blogs where every new stamp release is, "even though I say this every month, the best one yet that I couldn't wait to ink up"

What a fun thread. I think it's neat to see everyones opinion.
My loves:
birds, flowers, butterflies, pink, pink and more pink. My fav colour is green but I have three girls and use a lot of pink in my scrap booking

I don't really have any "Hates" just a pet peeve really. Those stamps with the little furry mice on them. My Mom loves them and wants to collect them all but I just dislike mice. Yuck! I can't bring myself to think of them as cute.

I can appreciate almost every trend, especially if it's done in a CAS way.

Here are a few things that I strongly dislike:

Ticket corner punches, especially layers of them!
Images that are country cute-sy (like Holly Hobby).
Diamond shapes

Stampinkitty, yes there's another pet hate, anyone who introduces their blog with " Hi i'm a stampin up demonstrator". Bye bye sampin up demonstrator, no variety on this blog then. I could end up on loads of hate lists now i suppose but yeah i should have said it in the first place "I h*** stampin up" .............sorry but there it is,shot myself in the foot , not my cup of tea.

I was having fun reading what ya'll wrote. I will add my 2cents for what it's worth, probably not 2cents any more!!

Love

most of my papers/card stock (have tons, I better like it!)
Copic
MS border punches ( I must as I have plenty)
nestie dies
fibers
inks of all brands
embossing folders (but I forget to use them)
all my fun tools



don't like so much

(birds with crowns and gumboots on sad little depressed looking children with watch parts for their bodies!) I was happy to know I am not the only one that does not care for this style.
all the kiddie style stamps that my adult friends would not relate to..... most are not stampers.
grunge

guess there is not too much I loath, just things I don't have!

Being the long-haired hippie-trash peace-freak that I am, for me stamping has always tended more toward counter-culture, something to rattle the cages of the more conservative types. Those stamps with no noses and mouths are creepy--ever read Harlan Ellison's "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream"? Anyway, I don't do "cute" except as a means to achieve "weird."

Love:
real rubber!! Okay, I'm a traditionalist, too!!
Prisma color pencils
Bazzill papers/cardstock (I've just discovered these); I'm intrigued by the color groupings and how I can use them

Loathe:
the aforementioned mouthless, noseless people, along with the abnormally large-headed people, and the round-footed people (the ones with no ankles), and the huge-eyed people
infantile words like embellies (and, by extension, the same use of such in the cross stitch world--silkies and fabbies)
cards so covered with embellishments that they need to be sent in boxes rather than fitting in their own envelopes
pens like Tombows (and how can anyone afford those Copics? $$$$$!!)

I'm sure there's more, but I'm in a hotel getting ready to go play tourist before the ballgame with Mark Harmon.
Sounds like fun!

Embossing powder! (Why does everyone hate it? I think it's one of the most magical substances ever!)
Versamark - both for my EP and just for watermarking
Ribbon, ribbon and more ribbon in every color and style imaginable (seriously - you should see my ribbon stash)
Having a wide variety of images - realistic, cutesy, line art, solid, etc. I know certain recepients like certain styles, so I love having the right stamp for my loved ones.
Flowers, butterflies, frogs and other animals - I don't think I could ever get tired of any of them
A wide variety of colors of cardstock and ink - I love them all! I only hate it when I run out of discontinued colors.
Nesties and embossing folders
Designer paper - I use it on almost every card
Sponging - it adds so much

It's funny to read how much stuff people loathe/dislike. I think most of what I don't like I just ignore. I don't even notice it enough to dislike it! The one thing I don't like is when cards are so busy you just don't know where to look. And the fact that most of those would never fit in an envelope. Which brings me to my one real dislike:

I hate it when a card challenge is to make an altered item or a card that won't fit in a standard envelope. I hate making that kind of thing because I know I will never use it!

Also I hate coloring line art images of people. I will never buy them. I don't hate them on other people's cards, but I hate using them.

I'll give it a go. But fair warning, I'm an odd creative person and not big into trends, period.

LOVE:
Ribbon
Color
Embossing
Dimensionals
Copics
Stamps I can color with Copics
Floral stamps
Elegant script fonts
Rhinestones/Pearls
Buttons
Ink, ink, and more ink (see the love of color above)
textured cardstock
watercoloring
ink techniques (reinker spread, mist and stamp, resist, brayering, daubing, stamping off, etc)
matchy-matchy coordination
matching stamp/die/punch combos
Cling mounted stamps
GOOD QUALITY photopolymer stamps

TRYING TO LOVE:
patterned paper (love it; have a hard time using it)
glitter (huge mess!)

DISLIKE
distressed (I'm a CAS type of gal)
frou-frou (like the look of others' work but I suck at it)
overly vintage (a few swipes of light brown in to soften edges is great; sanding, tearing, crumpling, not so much)
Unmailable designs (no family close by)
distorted people/children
Anything missing body parts (like faces, heads, etc)
wood mounted stamps (take up too much space)
Cheap junk bought because it was well.....cheap.

Uh oh, I think I could go on for pages, LOL~ Better stop here.

I love Sales! If it's on sale, I'll look, and probably buy.
Purples
Cats
Western themed stamps

I hate slow shopping carts or web sites. If it takes forever or if it crashes, I get frustrated. The best online carts add the items without taking me from where I'm shopping. Sizzix is like that and I think CutatHome also, their websites just keep a running tally in the corner of the page. Fast and easy to use! I much prefer that to constantly having to go back to where I'm trying to shop. It's like having to walk to the checkstand with each item, I'm not going to buy as much if I have to keep going back and forth.

Guess that really does bother me.>g<

I will try this.. not big on trends

Love:
Scor-Pal, Scor-Mat, Scor-Bug, Scor-tape
excellent quality CS like Gina K and PTI
bling (gem stones, glitter, stickles, pearls, shimmerz, ect)
Pattern paper (mostly DCWV and K&Company but I also own small amounts of BG, making memories, Reminise, around the block, graphic 45 and BoBunny)
Cuttlebug with dies (including Nestabilities, shapabilities) &/or Embossing folders and texture plates
Distress Inks, crackle paints
vintage and shabby chic designs
Grunge designs
Mica powders (Pearl Ex and Perfect Pearls)
Guillotine cutter
Border punches

Fabric stickers and adhesive canvas
paint
Birds/Butterflies/dragonflies
Flowers
masculine stamps
alcohol inks
Vellum
templates
Creative Memories cutting system (gems, Ovals and Circles)
ephemera
Almost anything sold under the Ranger trademark.

Dislike
eyelets for the most part
paper trimmers
videos with only music and no real verbal or written instructions
Some really old pattern paper I own
letter stickers
covered chipboard
fantastic coloring tools
alot of & 1 & 2 dollar stamps (I own alot of them but rarely ever use them)
stamps that look like a 3 year old could draw better
Copics (It is just a cost per marker thing- I can be frugal at times- well most of the time)
Clean and simple & bold graphic cards (I like some cards I have seen, but can't make 1 to my satisfaction)
Crystal Color Lacquer (I have made my own dew drops but it is alot of hassle)
Joanne Sheen, Carol Ann studio, Chris Warner, Sharon Duncan CD's and DVD's. I use them sometimes for an image but none of these videos are worth the cost, but since I have over 25 of then given to me at no cost - I shouldn't complain.
Crafters Companion Score board and enveloper.
scraps of CS or DP (I have way too much but have a problem throwing it away.
Distorted images of children (large heads, no mouth, ect)
Sewing on cards (I like how it appears on other peoples cards but not for me)- I prefer faux sewing
Too busy, too many layers especially when it is lots of DP layered.

I am sure there is alot more, but here is the things that come into my mind quickly!

I'm afraid to ask, but...

What is a kid with no head? Is there an example? I've never seen one.

chipboard

collage
tim holtz prodcuts
stamps I can't color
digi stamps (but only because I don't have a very good printer)

I'm sure I'll think of tons for things as soon as I post this, but this is a start at least. Thanks for starting this thread, this was fun!

Hugs, Christine
