Default What do you ALWAYS use?

I was reading Beates blog (where she just made the most darling kickstand card with the new GinaK set...can't recall the name...has the cute hippo, giraffe); anyhoo, she was saying how she always HAS to use certain items on her cards, or else it feels weird. I think she mentioned All in a Row for faux stitching, ticket punch, photo corners.

What do you find yourself ALWAYS using, for almost every card, until you start to feel self-conscious about it and think you should lay off for a while? That you might be boring the gallery! LOL!

For me, it is the ticket punch, brads and ribbon (natch). I cannot seem to make a card without at least one of these 3 three items.

Probably 95% of my cards have some sort of glitter or shimmer. I also want at least one kind of hardware and/or ribbon on about 90% of them.

Funny you should ask this question - I was just thinking of asking it myself! For me, it is definitely the ticket punch - I just about can't make a card without using it.

The scallop punches. All of them. Round, oval, square, rectangle. You name it, and I've got a scallop shape on the card.

Definitely ribbon for me! I made a card without it the other day and it looked like I would feel if I left home with no shirt on! I always try to stick a little bow on, a piece here or there, or something. I thought the other day that I need to move on to something else, but ribbon is just so AWESOME!

First would be Stickles, I mean a card without sparkle, is just plain "naked", IMO (lol)! And second ould probably be Ticket Corner Punch.

Black and white gingham has been it for a long time. Very recently, it's been page pebbles or dew drops.

I don't have any one thing, but these are the things I use very often:
--Stickles
--Scallop punches (any)
--Photo Corner punches
--Copic coloring
--Cuttlebug embossing folders (via cardstock on backgrounds)
Of course, this is always subject to change when new things come out!

At the expense of sounding sarcastic, I would say double sided tape. And dimensional tape.

I always have inked edges on my cards for that distressed look, but other than that--I seem to have many cards with buttons and patterned paper. Lots of polka dot organdy ribbon too.

I didn't include the "behind the scenes" stuff, but if you include that, I would say:

--glue dots
--mono perm. tape roller
--papertrey white cardstock

Now that I think about it:
-patterned paper
-die cut shapes
-inked edges
I tend to use at least one of these on every card (or scrapbook page) I make.

Ribbon! I was looking through my favorites and almost every card there has ribbon on it, too. I'm hopelessly addicted.

I use heat embossing on nearly every card in some way. I also use die cuts from my Cuttlebug or BIGkick on nearly every card.

I'm always using designer paper. Even on a solid color card I've got to get a little pattern in there somewhere. And I am always reaching for the Stickles bottle. And for some reason I just cant create a flat card -- it just looks really wrong. I always need the little 3-D square pop-ups.

Ribbon and foam tape (for dimension). I also seem to sponge the edges of everything to make is distressed. I just can't help myself.

After a long drought of papercrafting, all of the cards that I have made this year have some patterned paper and dots for dimension. And brads/eyelets (some kind of hardware).

Scallop punches - I find it hard to make a card without one any more but I need to back off and give them a rest!

I almost always use DP (designer or patterned paper). My cards just seem to feel naked without them.
