Watercolours.

That is my reward for making a card. I mean, making a card is reward enough in itself, but the final act of watercolouring it is extremely satisfying. But sometimes I try to make a card without watercolours, just to see if I still can.

I also feel the need to add brads and embossing powder. I am actually known as the embossing queen among friends - and I have to admit I embossing just about anything I can think of... Oddly enough many people mentioned ribbon - when that is the embellishment I really have to push myself to use.

The answer for me would definitely be sponges, ribbon and the ticket corner punch.

Patterned paper. I don't remember the last time I made a card without it.

Almost all my cards have the following 3 elements: some metal (brads, eyelets, buckle), some ribbon, and punched corners (ticket, round, etc). A card just isn't complete to me unless it has those 3 things.

It's in my will. I will be buried with my Memories Black Ink Pad, my Japanese screw punch and my genesis paper cutter.

Ribbon for me. And foam tape. I loves the foam tape.

Almost all my cards have the same layout, something across the middle with something overlapping it (usually the main stamped image) and then a prhrase in the oposite corner. Time to start doing sketch challanges again I think!

Oh and note to self: reconsider your neglected ticket punch, apparently its great.

Definitely ribbon - I rarely make a card without it! But also brads and stickles! Oh, and chocolate chip paper! Even if it's just a sliver, it seems to always make it's way into my cards!

some kind of sparkle (Stickles/Glamour Dust/Glitter) and ribbon. It's pretty rare for me to make a card without any DP too (good job since I bought tons of the stuff last year! )
