  1. I would say that I have the most fun with dies, but I don't have nearly enough of them! So, I'll have to say I have the most fun with embossing folders, because I have an overabundance of them, and I love nearly every one. Thanks for the great giveaway. Your blog is awesome!

  3. I, like you, love making cards with dies. They are my most favorite tool to convey what I want my cards to "say."

  4. When I make cards, my first go to item is dies. My second is paper. I can design a card and change up the paper and it looks like a totally different card.

  5. Recently I've started playing with mixed media so I'd have to say paints and stencils.

  6. Hi Lisa ! I just checked back and saw that my first post was the 3rd of March 2011! So we almost started blogging the same time! I can remember the card of yours that made me started following your blog... It was one you made for Mojo Monday! Can you believe! Well... 742 followers later, and your blog is still one of my favorite stops! Thanks for ALWAYS inspiring me. Hugs to you and happy birthday to I'm in haven!

  10. Hi Lisa
    Your blog is always inspiring and is one of my first visits each day. Your ideas are original and so 'my style'. I started my journey with stamping but now my first love is die cutting.
    Thank you

  11. Both of these cards are just perfect. Love love the newcardstock/paper from papertrey. The silver dots yum and those flowers. Love flowers, love playing with dies so its a perfect die. My favourite on cards is colouring and by the amount of dies I have and now a silhouette I think they would have to be at the top of the list.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Besides dies it is inspiration from blogs such as yours! You are so creative and generous in sharing your ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I am also addicted to dies! And some bling always on my cards. Wanted to let you know that I make 4 cards a month and send them to 4 friends or family. Rotating them through the year. I love knowing that they put a smile on their faces! And thanks to you I have gotten A LOT of inspiration for most of my cards. Thank you so very much for sharing with us! Traci E.

  16. Congrats on the 4 years, Lisa!! I have been following your blog since last year and enjoy your cards very much!!! Always a pleasure visiting here!!!
    Oh, flower dies are my absolute favourite card making tool. If you visit my blog you will see that almost all my cards have a die-cut flower on it!!!! I love my flower dies!!! So you would be able to guess that I would consider giving my two front teeth to have one of your lovely pinwheel dies!!! LOL!!! (at this stage I'm very much bored with the very limited amount of dies I have!!!) And those yummy papers - show me the card maker who would not love to have those!!! Thank you so much for having this give away - such a lovely idea to celebrate your 4 years in Blogland!!!! And may the next 4 years be even better than the past ones and may your blog keep growing and bring you even more pleasure!!!
    Oh, and I have to say your two pinwheel cards are fabulous (as all your cards are!!!)
    Have a lovely day!!!

  17. In the past I would have definitely said stamps...but now it's dies all the way. I am amassing a good collection of them and love the way they make a card look so professional so easily (which is not always achieved with stamps).

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  29. Super cute cards!
    While I love using dies - and rarely make a card without them any more, I love to color. It's calming to me. So markers would be my most loved item.

    ReplyDelete

    My preferred item in craft are the dies, love dies!!! But they needs cardstock or patterned... I always need patterned papers, I have a little of this, so pheraps it's more correctly I say that my preferred item is paper :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I just love dies! A lot of time is spent searching the web for them! Your blog is an inspiration for me. Your cards are clean and simple, and so pretty! I have been following blogs for years, and its funny how my favourites have changed over the years. I have to admit, yours is a go to!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Love love love your card. Yes, dies show up on almost every single one of my cards and I make tons of cards. Thanks for a chance to win this one. It looks really cool!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I like patterned paper and dies--esp. flowers...no messy ink!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Your cards are amazing, I love them! My favourite things to work with are dies too. I seem to be obsessed with them. There hasn't been a die yet that I can't see potential in! LOL Thanks for the chance to win one of these paper & die packs. They are gorgeous and I would LOVE to give one of them a good home and some love!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thank you for the chance to win a paper and die pack! I am with you in your love for dies. Lately most of my craft money has been spent on dies as I know I will use them and keep them forever.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Your cards are fabulous, as always - I so adore your clean style! As for what I love most when making cards....that is tricky. I do love dies, but I do love my stamps as well. What I most enjoy is not so much what I am making the cards with, but when I have an idea about a card and it actually works and results in a card I love! Thanks for the give-away!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Paper! I enjoy selecting the paper I want to use, maybe it's because I like to sew and what fabric to use is usually the beginning of a project. Yes, I think paper is my favorite starting point to having fun.
    I love the paper you used today for this card and thank you for this giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I enjoy your creations so much! I love heat embossing. Just such fun to watch it emerge. Thanks for the give away and congratulations on your blogaversary!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I've had to start using dies more often now due to carpal tunnel syndrome and surgery for it that didn't work too well. It's very difficult for me to hold onto stamps so I'm learning how to make great looking cards using dies, thanks to all your wonderful ideas.

  53. I think I'm enjoying most the BigShot a penpal friend passed on to me when she replaced it. I love popping the die-cuts out of their die, and hearing the cracking sound as the sandwich goes thru the die-cutters!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Love working with dies and get so much inspiration from your awesome creativity! Thank you so much for sharing your gift with all of us!

  58. Congrats!
    I love dies and inks. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Choosing one favorite is very hard so I will give you my top 3; dies, liquid embossing, and working with distress inks to make backgrounds to die cut into flowers and butterflies. Of course, learning new techniques ranks up there pretty high too. Ah, I like it all.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love inks - the colors are unending!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I've decided that I'm a dieaholic!!! I want them all and just love to work magic with them. I have purchased dies to excess because I find each one as unique as the next one. I especially like the word dies as they add so much dimension to my cards. Your two cards today are awesome. That Papertrey paper is sooooo pretty. Gotta have some. Thanks for your continued inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Most definitely dies...one can color them, glitter them....do so much with them. I love using them to simlly emboss on paper too.

    ReplyDelete
  63. wow, tough question! I am primarily a stamper so I probably have to say that stamping is #1 but it seems that I usually use something that I cut with my dies but dies would have to be my second fav......but ALWAYS stamping! Love your blog and the inspiration it brings to my creating; thanks for this opportunity to win such cool goodies.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Can anyone have too many dies? I think NOT. Without a doubt dies are the most fun to work with. Many are so versatile and I love being able to use them in different ways. Dies, whether simple or intricate, add so much interest and definitely make a card pop.

    ReplyDelete
  97. The first has to be playing with papers--solids & patterned--to see what goes best together for the occasion, what pops, what is peaceful. The paper says the most of a card.
