We are also DELIGHTED to welcome Lorraine to our team permanently.
We have loved having her as our recent guest and she has agreed to stay on with us.
We hope you will pop along to leave her a comment to welcome her.
My style has changed over the years, I always used to add pearls or ribbon to my cards but now they are gathering dust. I love to make embellishments with small dies and my favourites at the moment are clouds
My 3 old-faithfuls of ribbons, flowers and pearls always remain! My favourite ribbons are beautiful 15mm satins or organzas, especially when tied in a double bow. I love the sheen and texture and I like pairing them with the flowers and pearls.
My favourite embellishments vary depending on the card. Pearls are always a favourite on anniversary card. I love the subtle sheen and elegance.
My favourite embellishments are diecuts. I particularly like die cut flowers, and there are so many to choose from.
My favourites are pearls, flowers and either ribbon or lace. I love adding them to special occasion/big birthday cards as it makes them stand out a bit more from the rest.
My favourite embellishments are seam binding (of which I have many metres and in many colours) and enamel dots. Neither add too much bulk for posting and just add a nice finishing touch to most styles of card.
Many of you will be familiar with my CAS style, so I don't use that many embellishments, but when I do I like to use die-cut or punched shapes as accents. For this one, I used little stars to form a fountain of happiness.
My favourite embellishment at the moment is twine/yarn. I usually use the brown yarn to attach a charm to my card. Or in this case I made a bow. It's so versatile and gives something extra to my cards.
So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.
Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
