Also today, the Senior DT members are having a special post to
showcase all of our TOP 6 Favorite Things at Sweet Stamps.  Below you will
see my Top 6 Favorites..... Check out the rest of the DT's favorites on
the Sweet Stamps Blog and then go to the individual blogs
to read why these are our favorite things.





#1 Fantasy Embossing powders - There are 4 colors, gold, silver, ivory and white. These are fine detail embossing powders infused with holographic glitter for a subtle sparkly effect. These fine detail embossing powders give you a really great sparkle, and as everyone knows by now I LOVE sparkle. Try them on Parchment and you will say "WOW". I sure did when Stacey demoed them at one of the stamp shows. Give them a try and you too will like these embossing powders.

#2 Copics - These are my favorite markers to use to color in my stamped images.  They are alcohol ink markers and when used correctly, you will get a great effect.  Your images will POP with highlights and shadows.  These are my all time FAVORITE.....

#3 First Edition Design Paper Pads - There are so many different pattern pads, I don't really have one that I like over the others. You get some embossed, glittered, and double sided papers in the same pad.  There are 5 sheets of each design so it gives you plenty to use on your cards. And if you are like me and have a hard time finding papers to match to use on your card, these paper pads give you so many choices for mixing and matching. 

#4 782 Rose Heart Large Stamp - A very pretty grapevine and rose heart shaped frame. As I really like Roses, this is one of my favorites. It can be used as a frame with a sentiment in the center of it or use it alone. 

#5 7011 Cutwork Rose Stamp - This is another Rose stamp that I really LOVE.  I used this stamp to create a stained glass card using acetate and Pearl Pens.  This is another stamp that can be used for so many occasions.

#6 DL101 English Tea Party Doily Die and DL102 French Pastry Doily Die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  These are my 2 favorite doily dies from Cheery Lynn.  I love how there are so many different ways to use these.  Cheery Lynn has so many different kinds of dies that once you see them, you will want them all.  They range from the most delicate and lacy to just the plain shapes.  They get used all the time on most all of my Sweet Stamps projects.

we will not have a card challenge this week but leave a comment on the SweetStamps blog for a chance to win $10 of stamps - there will be TWO winners this week, and we'll go back to one $20 winner with the card challenges next week with our Roses challenge.
