    I’ve loved seeing your new releases each day. I’m so Inspired by your stamps and cards that I am going to create masculine cards only for the next little while. My favourite embellishment has to be ribbon/twine with stamped background! Good luck to everyone and thank you for the opportunity to win!

  2. Sue A says:

    Such stunning cards! It’s so hard to pick just one favorite embellishment, but I would have to go with ribbon or twine. Although, I love using tags on my projects as well. Thank you for the chance to win some blog candy.

  3. Teresa says:

    Terrific cards, the fishing stamps as well as the guitars are great for the guys in life! I use pearls, bling and brads banged up with a texture hammer most often as embellishments, too fun!!

  4. Vicki says:

    The embellishments I use most are flowers either handmade from paper or bought ones from your store. I eagerly a wait the new release another fantastic set of stamps.

  5. Pam says:

    I use ribbon the most often to embellish. Thank you so very much for this fabulous release with so many fantastic products. The inspiration has been amazing!

  6. kymmiek says:

    This has been such a wonderful release! Thank you for all the amazing samples! The embellishment that I use the most are flat backed pearls. They add just the right amount of bling and can be colored to match my project.

  7. Cindy Rescorl says:

    Lovely cards Ladies! I probably use ribbon, pearls & rhinestones most often. I need to have some bling on just about every card!

  8. Benzi says:

    The cards have been outstanding this week. All these DT cards and yours, Joanna, are fabulous. I’ve seen great ideas for masculine cards. I need those sets now for a card I need to make.

    I guess the embellishments I use most are flowers.

  9. Annamieke says:

    I just love getting opening my email and find one from you Joanna. The projects that you share are awesome. Loike others my fav embellishment would be pearls, flowers and a stamp from your fab range.
    Many thanks.

  10. Ina says:

    I have really enjoyed the inspiration the DT have given me with all the fabulous male cards. Thank you. My favourite embellishments would be flowers and I must say I love yours as they are so beautifully made and love the small size – perfect for that final touch to a card. I also can’t do without my Spellbinders ribbon and pearls.

  11. Tammy says:

    these projects are so inspiring! as for me what I use the most are pearls and ribbons, but any embellishment is useful some time or the other.

  12. Raluca Vezeteu says:

    Such awesome cards… Love every single one of them… My most used embellishments are pearls (different sizes and colours), flowers and butterflies and for masculine cards I use buttons.

  13. Lisa Stolp says:

    I love the outdoorsman projects. I have a lot of outdoorsman in my family. As far as embellishments go I use lots of gems/pearls. I haven’t scrapped in eight months because I had to have a thumb joint reconstruction but am sooooo looking forward to getting back to it in a couple weeks and using the stuff I ordered from you a couple months ago. 🙂

  14. Miriam Prantner says:

    This is a tough one! I don’t know that I have a go to embellishment. Maybe sequins right now as I seem to be reaching for them frequently. My go to trim is definitely May Arts Burlap String

  15. claudia says:

    wow to pick only one/a few as I use them all.
    Probably what I use the most enamel dots and brads, but I love them all!

  16. JennyH says:

    I love this stamp release, so much masculine inspiration.
    I use flowers the most for embellishment, quite a few butterflies too : )

  17. Jennifer T says:

    Seriously awesome release! Love that it was all masculine. I tend to use a lot of rhinestones and pearls on my cards…totally in-masculine haha!

  18. Bobbi Miller says:

    What a lovely line up of new stamps! I love each one of these projects! I have been using many different embellishments lately; I think I’m having an identify crisis! It’s becoming harder for me to make decisions on my cards, and taking me a lot longer to think of ways to create. But, I lean toward bling, pearls and something quick. Love this release….my order will be coming soon! TFS

  19. Liz O says:

    Fabulous inspiration and release Joanna!!! Lately I have been using ribbon and glass beeds more than anying else 🙂 Thanks for all you do and share! Have a wonderful weekend my friend!

  20. Amy Kolling says:

    I am finding I’m using sequins and enamel dots the most lately…..both add just that little something!!!! Fab release!!!

  21. Pooja says:

    Fab stamp sets and amazing cards by DTs ..Most favorite embellishments..Flowers…making cards without them seems difficult to me..and the that’s one of the reason I loved all the masculine cards showcased here.

  22. Janet Mack says:

    What a great release, all about the guys in our lives. I use glitter on everything, my friends call me the glitter gal. Sometimes my hubs is even coated in glitter.

  23. Pat Stewart says:

    I use the texture folders a lot! LOVE THEM! As for embellishments…probably ribbon. LOVE the new ruffled stretch is sooo attractive and fun to use. But come to think of it the winner of the choice is rhinestones….so I actually have a couple FAVS. But Rhinestones is BEST invention!!! Adds pizzazz in a second!

  24. Cheryl Wright says:

    My absolute favourite embellishment to use is flowers. I make a lot of my own, but I’ve recently begun using IBS flowers, and I love them! They’re so dainty and give my cards that extra feminine look.

  25. sindhu says:
