Thanks for stopping by today. This Sunday I am hopping with a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all around the world. You will love seeing the different style of each papercrafter.

Our theme for the hop is BLENDS! Blends are the new, improved alcohol markers that Stampin’ Up! released earlier this fall. Blends color like a dream. If you are an adult coloring book addict or paper crafter you are going to want several of these markers. Heck, just go ahead and order all the blend colors. I know you will adore them as much as I do.

I have two cards to share with you today. One has just a touch of coloring and the other uses every color of Blends minus the browns and grays.

My first card:

This is a center step fold card created with the Birthday Delivery set. That little girl is so cute and sweet. Did you notice the LOVE card? It is from the Petal Garden card package. Using cards that are pre-printed saves time and gives you many options. The ribbon is also colored with the Pool Party Blend marker. How cool is that? You can now make all your white ribbon match your card stock. This ribbon is a hint of something to come in the New Occasions Catalog!

My second card:

This colorful card really pops. For this card I cut the Happy Birthday out using Whisper White.  I cut the words where they join so I had two die cuts. Using the Blends I colored each letter in rainbow order. I layered four black card stock die cuts and then glued the colored Happy Birthday on top. The little bit of black shadow peeking out makes the colors jump right off the card. These are alcohol markers so the paper does not pill up and the colors are really vibrant.I also scored around the edge of the card to add some additional interest, added a few starts and it is complete.

Which one is your favorite?
