Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop- Stampin' Blends!

We are so excited to be showcasing the amazing new Stampin' Blends markers!
  
I decided to test drive these babies on the Smitten Mittens stamp set...
 
 
& what goes better with cold hands than COFFEEEE!
I used the adorable cross stitch heart to dress up my little cup & I just love it! I also snuck in a piece of one of the Razzleberry cards from the new Color Me Happy card kit.
 
Did you catch how I switched up that sentiment? It was sooo easy to turn the "Smitten" in to "Mittens". I often take my paper snips to my stamps to make them more versatile but if you're a little nervous about that then a marker & Stamp a Majig will do the trick as well.

haven't seen it yet.

 
 Stampin’ Up!’s premier alcohol markers, Stampin’ Blends are high-quality, dual-tip markers that come in 12 of Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive colors, each with a light and dark shade. Maybe you don’t think of yourself as an artist, but you don’t need to be because these markers make it super easy to blend colors and create gorgeous works of art!
 
Ok I am seriously excited to see what the rest of the Team has made so lets go visit Mindy!

Hello Crafty Friends!

Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Merry Patterns

We are back to showcase the super fun Hostess set Merry Patterns!
 
 
I wanted to break out some non traditional Christmas colors &
make 2 cards that are the same layout just embellished a bit differently.
 
 
For both cards I stamped the deer & the greeting in black.  
 
On the Blushing Bride version I embossed the "season" in white &
finished off with some bakers twine.
 
 
I got out my embossing paste for the Pool Party version. Once the paste was dry I decided I wanted to add some copper embossing powder so I laid the stencil back over & dabbed on some versamark. Finished off with copper embossing powder & that beautiful washi tape from the Holiday catalog!
 
 
Alrighty lets go see what fun Mindy has in store for us!
