How to make a quick and easy card using Stampin' Blends


Hello friends!! I am participating for the first time ever on a blog hop!! I am excited to see how this works, as everyone comments that this is a great way to share our creations with more people, and I truly enjoy sharing what I love with all of you..

So today I am sharing a quick and easy card using the brand new Stampin' Blends!! These are great alcohol markers and they are perfect for coloring as you get vibrant colors and cannot see the strokes you make as you are coloring, also you can do shading and so these are just fantastic for your  paper crafting creations.. I promise you, you will love coloring once you try them..  



The picture below shows the colors I use for this card, these are Old Olive (Dark and Light), Daffodil Delight (Dark and Light), Pool Party Light and the color lifter which as its name states, it pick up the color and so you add even more life when shadowing..


As with everything, there is a little learning curve, but this is easy, you just need to play with them and see what you like or don't... But to help you a bit you can see this video tutorial, where I share a few of my tips when coloring.. there is no right or wrong when using Stampin' Blends, you just have to start coloring to find out what works best for you.


Let me know what you think of this card, did you like it? was this video tutorial helpful? leave me a comment if you have any question or if there is anything you would like me to feature on my blog.. Hope you have enjoyed this project.. Also do visit the rest of the participants on this blog hop!! it is all about Stampin' Blends, so you will get tons of inspirations from everyone.

And as usual, below is a link to all the products used on this card, so if you need any of these items, I will appreciate if you shop on my online store by clicking any of the images below.. Thank you :)
