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 🙂

Facebook Live November 4 2017 – Christmas projects

Here are the projects from one of my Facebook live events..  I hold these events on Thursdays at 7pm Central time on my Facebook page.. CLICK HERE to like my page and follow it so you get notifications when I go live!! I would love for you to join me on one of these events.. these are always fun.. 

This is the card I made using the tags and trimmings set!!, I fot inspired by a card that Connie Collins made, so I had to give it a try and make my version of it.. 🙂  

It is always fun that we can case among demonstrators!!, (CASE AKA Copy and Share Everything), as we can inspire one another, you don’t have to come up with all the items you make, if you ever stress about this, then go Pinterest or to your favoring Stamping blog and check out the card/projects you like and then you can recreate or you can modify with what you have in your stash.. This is one of my biggest tips when trying to design something and I am simply not feeling creative that day.. so give it a try and let me know if this helped you 🙂

These treat bags are my favorite project from this session!!, I absolutely adore the coffee break bundle (which is the one I use to cut out the little coffee cups) this is super cute and easy to make.. 
This is another item that I have taken to my craft fairs, and People loves it!! It hold packet of hot cocoa..  

I made these using plain cardstock and I did the one below using retired designer series paper (DSP), since this was for a craft fair I really like using my retired paper, as this helps me deplete my stash as well since I cannot really use it for classes.. so it is a win-win situation for me.. 🙂

So check out the Facebook live video to learn how to make both the card as well as the hot cocoa pouches.. 
Hope you like these projects
Leave me a comment if you have any question.. also if you want to get any items of the ones I use on my projects you can click to any of the images below and it will take you to my online store where you can purchase these items.. 

Appreciate your continued support, this is what makes it possible for me to keep crafting and sharing with you 🙂

Little Dallas is a strong fighter and yesterday’s update mentioned that Dallas will go home, if all goes as planned, by January 4th, ot by  Christmas as they were thinking, there are a lot things that have to be in place for them to bring her home, as she will be home with a ventilator.. 

Her journey is still long as she will need to have a lot of health care at home, this Family is truly strong and needs our support, so I ask you to please help me joining me in this fundraiser.. you can learn more about her story by CLICKING HERE

The fundraiser is a card class that will be held in La Madeleine  Frisco TX on Nov 17th at 5:30 pm, so if you are local to me you can attend this event live, you don’t have to be crafty, or creative, these cards are super easy to put together 🙂 and I promise you will have fun during this evening. 
If you are not local to me but you want to help me I am offering making these cards and mailing them to you as well
