  9. That’s awesome of you to give us a chance to win a spot in your class! I love all the techniques. Just like I love all the pretty things. LOL. If I had to chose one I guess it would be stamping. You’re my favorite so please keep up the videos for years to come! Thanks so much!

  10. Smooshing is my favorite! Anyone else have boxes of backgrounds saved?

    ReplyDelete
  11. My favorite card technique is single layer cards.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love to use different techniques for creating CAS cards. Right now, I'm enjoying using stencils for my designs and I'm trying to improve my colouring skills. Thanks for the chance to win a free spot in your class!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thanks Kelly! I think right now my favourite is colouring. The hardest is the bit where I try to turn the coloured stuff into a coherent care. I'd getting addicted to stamping out all.the cute things and copic colouring in front of TV and then.. I get stuck. I think that I need to change the process to be making a card plan first and then colouring the things? Lol I think my brain is full lately and so the decision making is too hard. I'm brain freezing like a browser with too many tabs open.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hi Kelly. My fav technique is probably die cut inlay but my fav to watch is you and those markers with all the great stories. Thank you for the opportunity

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hard to pick... Probably coloring and watercoloring. Although heat embossing is still a bit like Christmas ;^)
    Thanks for this chance to win an awesome class.

    ReplyDelete
  16. So many things to choose from! I am inspired by so many of your videos and your colouring talent, I try a lot of the things you do. Right now I live smooshing and galaxy backgrounds.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hi, I really love both colored pencil coloring and water coloring, especially no line water coloring. I also like wet on wet techniques as the movements of colour over a watered background hypnotize me! Thank you for sharing your tips in those great videos!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I've taken A page out of your book with my favorite technique. I either ink blend or ink smoosh to partially fill in my background then stamp over it and use colored pencils to fill in the highlights and low lights. You do out with Copic's, I do it with pencils!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Coloring is my favorite part of this craft. Currently Copic coloring is my favorite. Would like to do more with colored pencils but still have to work on that.

    ReplyDelete

  42. One of my favorite techniques I learned from you. I die cut a shape and use the outside over my A2 card and blend in that shape and of course add my stamps around it.. You have made so many amazing cards with it. I also just bought the W&W Love and I have the flowers as I am totally going to try and copy (yes copy) your card design. I have to try it out :). I'm already signed up for your class! I can't wait!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hi Kelly,
    I love watching your tutorials! I love listening to your stories as you create!! I’d love how you always know where all the shadows are suppose to go... It doesn’t matter if I know where the light source is coming from or not, I’m not very good at that. I really like the colors that you use to make a card come alive! Thanks again for your class giveaway!!!

  54. I think the no line watercolor technique would be my favorite. I still need lots of practice but I am getting there.

    ReplyDelete
  55. My favorite techniques change frequently, but I always revert back to embossing. A demo using gold embossing was what first got me hooked on stamping, and I ‘ve been an addict ever since

    ReplyDelete
  56. What a great giveaway! Embossing has to be my fave technique, wet and dry. Watching the embossing powder turn when heated up still fascinates me. And dry embossing always seems to add a nice touch to any card.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Love this! My favorite technique is ink blending. I love the bright backgrounds it creates and how you can add shine with perfect pearls or if using distress ink you can get cool designs with water. It's just super versatile!

    ReplyDelete

  76. I like using watercolors on my cards. Just bought some watercolor markers and art impressions stamps. I love Altenew floral stamps, too.

    ReplyDelete
  77. My fave card technique is a toss up between "ink smooshing" and "ink blending." I figure if you can make a pretty background people can overlook mistakes on your card.... kind of... LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  78. My favorite technique is heat embossing and then water coloring images. Thanks for the chance to win; this would be a great class to take :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. My favourite technique is whatever wows me on Pinterest or YouTube that day and inspires me to create. Though it’s a dangerous game, because although I can apply those techniques with the supplies I have, I often like the results soo much I have to have the same supplies ��

    ReplyDelete
  83. I like distress resist with distress oxides & Arteza markers. However, I am hooked right now on alcohol backgrounds with foil. I do like watching your videos because you're hilarious & I learn a lot. However, I suck at coloring. Massively!!!

    ReplyDelete
  84. My favorite card technique is in-lay technique and watercolor/ink smooshing! Love all your videos and learn a lot, not just card making but also stories!!

    ReplyDelete
  113. My favorite card technique is going to your website or YouTube for one of your cards to copy, er, I mean, for inspiration. :D I LOVE one-layer cards and my absolute favorite one-layer card OF ALL TIME is your "Santa's Reindeer and Holiday Houses" (WPlus9) from October 2016. My Christmas cards that year looked remarkably like your card. Coincidence? I think not! ;-)

    ReplyDelete

  117. I don't know if I have a favorite, I like lots of different styles. I love to give new techniques a try. Thanks for the opportunity to win a class spot.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I love using the 'smoosh' technique (seriously, is that even a REAL technique - HA) to put down some color - particularly for flowers; then accent those colors with Copics and colored pencils. Any faux watercolor technique is fun cuz it doesn't matter HOW MANY watercoloring videos I watch; it just doesn't seem to be my thing!! Can't wait for class; bought my entry; going to be a blast!

    ReplyDelete
  119. I love using watercolor, distress inks, etc. Practicing hair and skin and blending....ugh! I keep trying with watercolor, pencils, etc. It's fun, but frustrating. However, I'll never give up creating and trying new things!

    ReplyDelete
  120. Ur asking to narrow down a technique. I enjoy each and everyone. Right now I'm into using distressed oxides for masking my own BG. I love my copics for coloring. I love coloring people and floral images

    ReplyDelete
  121. I love watching you color and I've learned so very much so I'm excited about this class, I think I signed up the day it was announced :) My favorite technique ? Geez that's hard to narrow down, I'm trying to teach myself no-line coloring whether it's Copic, colored pencils or watercolor but I also like scene building too and inlayed die cuts as well. Ok so I named a few, but I did narrow it down, hahaha!! Thanks for the chance to win a spot, I can't wait for the class to begin!

    ReplyDelete
  122. I love mixing and matching and masking for one layer cards. I am not very good at either, but I just love seeing how creative everyone is using these techniques and I admire the effort that they put into their work.

    ReplyDelete
