STAMPIN' UP! BEAUTY OF THE SEASON



Anyone who knows me knows I love birds, and I absolutely love this new stamp set Beauty of the Season. The background paper I used on the first card is from the new Trim The Tree designer series paper pack.  These cards just might be my Christmas cards this year.

BLENDABILITIES

I thought I would supply you with a list of important facts and information about Stampin' Up's new BLENDABILITIES MARKERS.  I will admit I use Copic markers too, but I will tell you I find the new Blendabilities very nice, colors are very brilliant and these markers are very easy to use and I'm always happy with the end results. These markers are half the cost of the Copic markers too.   I hope this list helps you when using Blendabilities. 

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT  STAMPIN' UP! 
                                  BLENDABILITIES


  Blendabilities Markers are alcohol based markers and the caps should never be
left off of these markers when not in use or the alcohol will evaporate very quickly.

*There are 13 different color combinations of Blendabilities, 3 pens per each pack.  There is also a Color Lifter pen.

*Each pen has a rectangular barrel to keep your markers from rolling away.

*Storing these markers flat will help to maintain the life of your markers.

*Each pen comes with a tip on each end: brush and fine tip.

*Each cap is color coded and it is a very tight fit on your marker.  This is so the alcohol in your markers does not dry up.  

*When putting your caps back on your marker I would suggest laying your marker down on your work space and then sliding your cap right on to the marker so as not to accidentally  hit the tip of your marker.  Hitting the tip of your marker will slice the tip and will not be usable.  

*I wear an old shirt when using my markers, because when pulling the tight cap off sometimes small dots of ink will splatter and I have ruined a good white shirt from splatters.

*Stampin’ Up! markers coordinate wonderfully with Stampin’ Up! card stock, and can be used with transparent sheets. 

*Everyone has their own way of blending, but when I blend using Blendabilities I first start with my darkest marker, then I use my medium marker and start coloring at the base of where the darkest color ended blending together in a circular motion, then I use my lightest marker using the same technique.


* ALWAYS use MEMENTO  INK PADS.

AUGUST PAPER PUMPKIN


Look what I made last night with some of my Paper Pumpkin products that came in my August Paper Pumpkin box!!  These cards are so fun to make, and check out those very cool envelopes with the brad and circle piece.  They are just like a clasp envelope.  The cards are so colorful and I'm so impressed with the quality of the card stock used.  I still have so many supplies left to make so many more cards.  I haven't used the "smile" or the "congrats" yet. Leave me a comment and I'll pick two people to send these cards too!!

AMAZING BIRTHDAY STAMP SET



I thought I would share with you this very cool project we made at convention last month.  This was made using the new Amazing Birthday (134225) stamp set and the new Stars  Framelits (133723).  The striped background paper is from the new Flowerpot DSI (133698).  Inside this little card holder is four cards stamped with the Amazing Birthday stamp set.  This project is a perfect example of layering pieces of card stock to create a beautiful and creative design.  This would make such a nice gift to give a friend or co-worker.

BLENDABILITIES AND BLENDED BLOOM


Today's card I used the Blended Bloom stamp again and colored it using the Daffodil Delight and the Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities.  This is such a perfect stamp to use these wonderful markers on because of all the white space this image offers.  The background paper I used is from the new Moonlight Designer Series Paper Pack.

Wednesday, August 6, 2014



This is a card I used the Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blendabilities on.  I love these new markers!! The stamp is the new Blended Bloom stamp. A perfect stamp to use with these delicious markers.  The background paper is from the new "Back to Black" designer series paper in the new catalog.
