SweetStamps "Pick 6"

Our blog challenge at SweetStamps.com this week was to let you know about some of our favorite items. It was difficult to narrow it down to only 6, since I love all the products, so I'm listing some of my go-to favorites:

#1 FRM 115 Lattice 2 Window Frame die by Cheery Lynn Designs: This is my favorite die from Cheery Lynn, it is so versatile and can be used in so many ways! Check out some of the sweet cards I've made with this die here. You can use it complete as a lattice background or cut portions out to change the look of the die, it also looks great as an embossed background!

#2 SweetStamps 245 Bird on Flowering Branch: This stamp is one of my favorite stamps from SweetStamps.  I've used it many times on both card stock and vellum for a variety of cards: birthday, anniversary and sympathy.  (I also like the old fashioned people from SweetStamps)

#3 Micro Glue dots: I love Micro Glue dots!  I use them with the FRM 115 Lattice 2 die to attach it to my card and also use them on all my delicate lacy dies. They are the perfect size for tiny items! 

#4 Nellie's Multi Frame Hearts MFD022: I used this heart frame for all of my Valentines cards last year and I was able to make a variety of looks from the 6 dies.  This die works great on Valentines cards but would work well for Anniversary or Wedding too.

#5 Quickie Glue Pen: This pen is great for working in small areas or for attaching delicate die cuts to your card or project. I use this pen for attaching the smaller Cheery Lynn Butterflies to their angel wings, and I've used it for adhering glitter or flocking to my cards.  You can also write or doodle with it and then sprinkle with glitter for a sparkly background.

#6 Crafts-Too Embossing Folders: These embossing folders are awesome!  There is a large variety of designs and they can be used to create wonderful embossed backgrounds for your cards or to emboss designs on die cuts.  I've used them for my Christmas cards and they are wonderful for those times when you need a card at the last moment.  You can also apply ink directly to the inside of the folder before embossing your card stock for a different look.

I love glue dots too and use them for more than just crafting. Someday if hubby decides on a toupee, the glue dots might work for holding that on his head!
