Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers

This is my first colouring attempt with the Stampin’ Blends.  I am a novice colourer but so happy to have a new colouring medium to enhance my crafting.

I made a card to recognise an amazing accomplishment by one of my team.  My team member Sam Hammond reached her 600,000 CSV sales milestone.  That means she has sold LOTS of Stampin’ Up! products.

I made an eclipse card using the newly introduced Color Me Happy Stamp set.

How I made the Eclipse card
  • I drew a line to attach the lanterns to using the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Markers.
  • I stamped the lanterns from the Color Me Happy stamp set with Memento Black Ink at different heights.
  • I began to colour each lantern using the new Stampin’ Blends.  I coloured a small area with the darker shade and then used the small nib of the lighter shade to blend and combine both shades.  (There are some great video tutorials shared below).
  • I then used the sentiment from This LIttle Piggy which says – She believed she could… and so she did and masked and stamped in the top left and bottom right corner.
  • I used the Numbers for You Die set to cut out the 600,000 and then stuck the numbers back in place with dimensionals to raise them up.
  • A final flourish of sequins and my card was complete 🙂

Numbers for You Eclipse Card

Sam and I recently took a little shopping trip to Bicester Village and more specifically the Michael Kors shop so I picked out a lovely new purse to match one of the bags she bought.  She so deserved to be spoiled.

This Little Piggy went roller skating!

My heart is full…..  I have just had the most wonderful team weekend and only got back Sunday evening and had yet to make my Global Design Project card.  Just before I left for the retreat I received my delivery and got my long awaited for This Little Piggy Stamp Set.   I don’t think I could love a stamp set more.

I could NOT wait to get this stamp set inky and when I saw the theme for this weeks challenge I was stumped for a moment as it was Wheels, yes wheels!!!! But having spent the weekend with a incredible people and really being so thankful to have a fantastic team and for Stampin’ Up! I wanted to use the greeting in this set and of course use the colour pink as our team name is the Pinkies and so I just had to use the piggies, wheels or no wheels.

This LIttle Piggy from Stampin' Up!

I used some artistic license and added some roller skates using a marker pen and the new mini sequins for wheels.  I hope the lovely GDP organise Louise forgives me 🙂

There are so many lovely new elements on this card and I could not be happier after spending the weekend with team members who I adore to get stamping.

This Little Piggy #GDP091

I am filled with inspiration after seeing so many samples and projects.  I received amazing swaps, attended some fabulous classes including how to get the blue on the background using watercolour pencils (thank you Sarah Berry) and laughed until my jaw hurt.

I love my team, they are inspirational, kind, supportive and great great fun!  I am truly blessed and they truly make me happy.

Now don’t be afraid to think outside the box and find a way to add wheels to your crafting projects and join the Global Design Project challenge this week.  We would love you to enter!
