I love the Soft Suede layer AND I LOVE the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.
Using Calypso Coral makes the image pop..
What do you think?
And coloring is one of my favorite things to do (I LOVED KINDERGARTEN!)
SO I used combinations of Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip inks ( and markers) with my Aqua Painter to paint the design of the basket from the Hanging Basket stamp set.
Added a piece of Calypso Coral ribbon and ta-da!
Card making is just the beginning of the giving process…. you make it, you SEND it and it appears in someone’s mail box!
What happens next is the smile on their face and the tender feeling in their heart…knowing that YOU created (or copied) a pretty card.. took time to write your message and send it on.
They are here! The Stampin' Blends are available for purchase! If you have not tried these yet, you are missing out!
Here are a few cards that I made with them. Can you see how beautifully they blend and show shading?
The markers can be purchased as single makers, in two marker sets by color, or as a whole collection. We currently have 12 of our exclusive Stampin' Up! colors, plus two shades of skin tone and a color lifter for a total of 27 markers.
I have been enjoying these new alcohol markers and I'm sure you will too!
Another tool to add to your inventory of fun options!
So to entice YOU, how about a class?

I LOVE this stamp set – Half Full -designed by Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Linda Bauwin!
When a Demonstrator surpasses $1,000,000 in sales she/he gets to DESIGN their own set!
How cool is that!!!!!
And I love the cards we just made at my class on Saturday!
For this one, we used a base of Crumb Cake card stock. Then a layer of Very Vanilla and topped off with another layer of Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and THEN a Gold Foil Snowflake with fresh Fig and Gold Metallic Edge ribbons!
A little stamping, cutting and Wink of Stella and voila!
What do you think?
Of course this was copied/tweaked from a card in Stampin' Up!
Check this one out and then come back this Wednesday to see the second card we made!
