It seems like it has been a minute since I have posted a video using one of my most FAVORITE coloring mediums – the Stampin’ Blends. But – it hasn’t. I thought it had. But the delightful Mermaid has like a bajillion Pins over on Pinterest. Seriously – she may end of being my most popular Pin ever. She was colored with Blends and I filmed her. So I guess – it’s just because I have been using the Pencils (my OG coloring love!) that it feel like it’s been a minute.
**I will be going LIVE on Facebook Tuesday Afternoon Apprx 2:15 pm EST on Cheri’s Cards – Unless it storms again and it goes completely dark like it did this earlier today! Going to demo the Blends on a super cute farmhouse style set that has little cotton blooms in it! Please Join me!!***
Plus – HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT – there are EVEN MORE Blends colors coming to you in the
Holiday Catalog in September.
I know. Can you stand it???!!! I have a plan for you – read all the way to the bottom of this post to find it!
For today though, my Card is inspired by my two most very helpful Office Assistants. If there is a warm chair – they take it. If something needs to be placed from the table onto the floor – they are here to knock it right off for me. Some of you may have watched the video where the Handsome guy on the left even knocked over the entire glass of water while I was using Brusho onto my workspace while filming. I am always shooing them away and the second I turn the camera off they have to hop up to see what was so important that they could not be a part of.
This adorable little set is perfect to color in with Blends as I have in this demo video. Or – you can use the new Watercolor Pencils that you are all buying this month!
Lady Sybil wants to you to take a few minutes and watch the card being made – especially because the kitty is inspired by her lovely markings!
Here she is helping as I was getting the stamps ready to make the card!
Here were the color choices – you can see the final choice I made was on the pumpkin….
But it does look cheery on the Grape – I may do a card with the Elephant and use the Grape with him.
And always for a Super Clean and Bright look – you can never go wrong with it mounted on Whisper White.
My original choice of the Granite though – is my favorite – as it makes my little kitty seem to be the focal point of the card. The Black foil is HARD to photograph. It was picking up the light from the room no matter where I laid the cards. I do LOVE this paper! You will too!
You can see when it is mounted on the Pumpkin Pie it is the little trick or treat pumpkin that your eye is drawn to. Try experimenting when you mount your cards and see the difference the back makes.
How much do you love that glittered ribbon?!
If you caught my video on how to use our new ink pads and NEVER get ink on your fingers….this is my little assistant helping out in the filming of that one.
