Again, thanks for sharing your incredible talent! YOU ROCK! :)

Nadège said...

1. Cards. Once in a while, I make a mini album but 99,99% of my craft is cards
2. I love cling because they make a better impression but clear are easier as you see through them. Wood mounted are great for background as they are more stable. I have almost as much clings as clear or wood. (meaning way too many but can't help it)
3. I use Scotch ATG gun most of the time and Scrapbook adhesive.
4. I bought 3 stamps from Fiskars but not the roller, and I use them with acrylic blocs for backgrounds or borders.
5. No, would love to know what this is. Maybe you'll show us in one of your fabulous video on a fantastic project ;-)

Thanks Shari for the giveaway and please keep creating for us, you're so inspiring.

Barbara said...

1. Cards
2. Love 'em all, but being able to see what I'm doing gives Clear the edge.
3. Yes: GlueGlider Pro Extreme Tac, Xyron, Plus (brand new purchase!)
4. Yes, I think: does the Rollagraph apply here or is there a newer variety you're referring to?
5. No - had to Google it to find out what it was. Probably won't buy it: don't like the high visibility of the shiny tape. Looks amateur . . . maybe if they'd used the same sort of "invisible" clear tape that Scotch Brand does?

I love this card...the cupcakes are so pretty, and I have been dying to use that background stamp myself once I finally got it a few weeks ago. Thanks for the inspiration! Here are my answers to your questionnaire:

1. Cards
2. Cling - I feel like they are the best of both worlds. I have many of all three types, but really try now just to buy cling.
3. Yes - ATG gun and Elmer's tape runners for mobile crafting (I hate to show up at a class with a giant ATG!)
4. Yes - Inkadinkado
5. Yes and no - So far it looks like I'm the only one who has even seen one! I purchased a Christmas-themed one last year, but haven't really use it yet other than to try it out a bit on some scrap paper.

Love your cupcake card. What a great card for any age.
Answers to your questions
1. I make mostly cards but I have a few scrapbooks that I am working on.
2.I prefer to buy cling and clear stamps for storage purposes. Though I love red rubber for stamping.
3. I don't use a tape runner, but I use 3M double sided tape for my cards. I find that taping onto something with embossing needs a real sticky tape. Runners weren't working.
4.Roller stamp. Yes, I have 4 but I seldom use them. I can't seem to go straight. I am almost ready to take them off the roller. LOL
5. I have never heard of a decorative tape pen. Guess I need educated on this item.

VicR said...

1. used to be primarily cards, now 50/50 cards and art journaling
2. I really prefer um red rubber when possible, but do have cling mount too. Will occasionally buy clear sets if I like enough of the images. Wood really does take up too much space.
3. I tried a Tombow brand a dozen or so years ago, but it gummed up bad, and never used a tape runner since. The big ATG looks awkward, but I've never tried, and people do look comfortable with using it though.
4. Yes, tried a few of the Clearsnap brand many years ago.
5. No, I've never heard of a decorative tape pen
I Always LOVE All of your cards, Shari, and more recently, your AWESOME Art Journal pages!

BeverlyBL said...

1. Cards
2. Like all kinds of stamps. Feel more secure with wood but they take up so much
space. Clear aren't always as sharp as I like and cling sometimes don't.
3. Use SU adhesive mostly, but recently bought a Scotch ATG and am getting the hang of
it. Also use red line and Score tape, A LOT.
4. Yes, I have used roller stamps but I'm not very good at them.
5. No, I have not heard of them.

I thought your cards turned out great, I especially love the "leftover" card for graduation. Very pretty. Congrats on your sponsor and thanks to you both for the give away.

Maria B. said...

Congrats and lucky us for the chance/s to win.
1. I am more into Scrapbook layouts but lately, I've been into other things e.g. cards (to enter contests) and party giveaways/gifts (since I have school-aged children.)
2. I enjoy using clear stamps especially when you have to re-stamp in case you messed up with the first one. Although I hate how they get stained despite cleaning it really well. I only get to appreciate rubber stamps after I bought myself a stamp-a-ma-jig.
3. I have a 3M roller tape runner. I bought out of being influenced by this lady in her blog who uses it a lot in her projects. What I started not liking about it is when it gunks up and how refilling your tape runner can be messy sometimes. I'm looking into other products but since my tape runner is still working, I will stick with it until it stops working. My roller stamp is a part of a Hello Kitty stamp collection. It was a gift from my sister. I saw the one being sold by Glitz but decided against buying it at that time.
4. No, I don't have a decorative pen. I saw them being sold at stores. Got curious but not curious enough to buy it.

Thanks also for viewing my card and commenting about it.

Leslie L. said...

Cards but I really need to get caught up on my scrapbooking.
2. What type of stamps do you prefer?
Clear
3. Do you use tape runner type adhesives in your crafting?
Yes, Scotch ATG right now but I just purchased a Tombo runner that is less bulky; I haven't tried it yet.

5. Have you ever used a decorative tape pen in your crafting?
No and I don't even believe I know what it is.

I have a coworker that would love to receive this card because she dreams in cupcakes; she wants to someday open a bakery. Have a great weekend.

Ilove all types of crafting. If I had to pick a favorite it would be cards.
