What Makes a Card Awesome???? The Little Things!

I was thinking as I put Sunday’s Sitting Here card together, how nice it was to be able to pull out this or that accessory to enhance the card.

I always make my first new catalog purchases from “the back of the book”.  …..From the section that has all the accessories and embellishments.  I find these bits and pieces invaluable to just have on hand:

Blythe's adhesive drawer

Snail, Fast Fuse, Multipurpose Adhesive drawer

 

Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Foam Adhesive Strips, Jewels

Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Foam Adhesive Strips, Tear & Tape, Jewels drawer

 

Then there are lots of others that pretty much depend upon your style or mood:

  • Embossing Powders and Heat ToolEmbossing Buddy (p. 181)
  • Clear Blocks (p. 183)

When you’re in the mood to splurge:

Many Marvelous Markers Stampin' Write Case

Many Marvelous Markers Stampin’ Write Case

Many Marvelous Markers Stampin' Write Case

Many Marvelous Markers Stampin’ Write Case–In Colors are in the bottom two rows (except for bottom four rows on right)

 

  • Color Caddy to hold all of your stamp pads in one place.  TIP:  I put a Rubbermade type turntable/spinner underneath mine for easy turning.
Color Caddy: Classic Pads, Reinkers, StazOn, InColors

Color Caddy: Classic Pads, Reinkers, StazOn, Memento Tuxedo Black, InColors

 

When you have some of these tools on hand, you’ll be able to dig right in and make an awesome embellished card.  Or, check out this list when getting ready to order a particular stamp set so you have the accent bits you’ll need or want.

Now I’ve got another card to make using my Embossing Buddy, Embossing Powder and Heat Tool.  And a new stamp set, Moroccan Nights.  Stay tuned.
