I created this Easter card with the set called Happy Easter Bunny, page 35 of the OC and he is a happy little guy and so stinkin’ cute!  I used Blendabilites and DSP called Best Year Ever, page 4 of the SABC.  You can get this DSP FREE with a $50 purchase before tax and shipping.  I used the ribbon, same page that mathes this DSP.  It also has matching buttons.  Both the Ribbons and Buttons you can get FREE with a $50 purchase.  Such a Deal!
Did you know that you can choose as your FREE item from the SABC a package of Blendabilites?  You can read all about it and the colors available on page 20 of the SABC.  Contact me here if you do not have an SAB Catalog.

See what I mean about this stamp set?  Just by changing the color of your inks you can go crazy and make your little friends any color you want.  It is so much fun to color and wonderful therapy.  Nothing like stamping lined images so you can color them in, just like when you were a kid with a new coloring book and a fresh box of crayons.  I had some left over wiggly eyes from a couple of years ago when we had them for Halloween.  I kept them knowing I would probably use them one of these days.  Unlike most of the stuff that retires, I get rid of so I can replenish my old stuff with new.  Well, these eyes are one of the things I just couldn’t let go. LOL

I made this card, again, for another friend that I do water aerobics with.  I made it extra large so we could all sign it.  I love to color this image with blendabilites in all different colors.  Using different colors, on the animals, every time I use this stamp, takes the boring out of  multiple stamping.  I like to make up these get well cards in advance so that I can just pull one out when the need arises.  At my age, every one around me, including myself, are  not always 100% healthy all the time.  However, at the risk of repeating myself, being sick beats the alternative.    LOL

Love Life!  I love this stamp set.  If you are into our Blendabilities or our Aqua Painters, you will love using this set.  It is one of my favorites from the SAB collection and can be found on page 19.  I used the new Washi tape, Stacked with Love found on page 5 of the OC.  I used Night of Navy to color the bird.  Just another set you can get FREE during SAB.  Good through March 31, 2015.

You can get this set, Best Day Ever, page 3 of the SAB catalog, or A Happy Thing, page 19 (SAB), FREE with a $50 purchase from any of our catalogs.  Remember that when SAB is over, you will not be able to get these sets anymore, so if you want them, now is the time to get the ones you want.
I thought I would go outside the box on this one and make them into limes instead of lemons.  I used the blendabilities, Old Olive and Wild Wasabi to color them.  The background paper is Back to Black.

Well if you have the new spring catalog (SC), you know this is one of the sets from that catalog.  This is a great stamp set, not only for children but for adults.  I used the blendabilities on this card and ran it through the embossing folder Decorative dots.  This set can be found on page 8 of the SC.

I love this new Photpolymer stamp set that was just released by SU.  It is so awesome!  It contains 25 stamps.  I will be posting a few of these in the next week or so that I designed.  This one is great for a little girl.  The face is from another Photopolymer set call Sweetie Pie.  Hope you like it!

I love this new DSP Flashback.  It goes great with our single stamp found on pg 167 of the big catalog.  I used Crystal Effects on the lens and our new blendabilities, Cherry Cobbler and Smokie Slate, to color the camera. The sentiment is from Hip Notes.  So Cool!

06. August 2014 · Comments Off on Color me rainbow! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , ,

I used the blendabilities on this image from the Today and Every Day set.  This set is so stinkin cute!  I tried to use a rainbow of colors to show off the depth and brilliance of blendabilities.  I am very happy with them (I am a long time Copic user) and the only thing I do not like about them is that they are not refillable.  However, when we went to convention, the product manager in charge of blendabilites said they were looking into that.

Right now to make them more affordable for everyone they are not refillable.  If enough people like them and ask for it, even though they may cost a bit more, they may just decide to make them refillable.  Hint, hint……

02. August 2014 · Comments Off on Back to Black! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

This image is from the set Today and Every Day” found on page 168 of the big catalog.  I used the new black & white bakers twine with the new white satin ribbon and colored the image in with Blendabilities.  The DSP is Back to Black also found in the big catalog.  I am very happy with the way this turned out.  What do you think?

I love this stamp set call ‘Today & Everyday” found on page 168 in the big catalog.  It is a great set to use your Blendabilities on.  In fact, at convention, SU used this exact image to show Demos how to use the blendabilities.  Mo, who wasn’t that enthused with them, after using them at convention with this stamp, she now loves them.  As I have said before, there is a bit of a learning curve using them but once you do, it is awesome.  The DSP I used on this card is Flashback.

I used crystal effects on this flower after I colored it with the Blendabilites.  I really like the way it came out.  This is another single stamp called Blended Bloom and can be found on page 167 in the catalog.  This is a great stamp for learninghow to use the blendabilities.  I also used the new washi tape Beach House found on page 190.  So many beautiful things in the catalog.  If you don’t have a catalog and want one, contact me here.

This is another card we made at club meeting.  The DSP is the specialty paper ‘Typeset’ on page 184 in the catalog and the stamp is another single called Snapshot!  We used blendabilities on the camera.  This is one of 5 single stamps that were given to all attendees at convention.  I already had one so I swapped this out with Mo an I took hers, she had the rocker that said ‘You Rock”.

I colored this card with the new blendas that won’t be available to the public until August 1st.  The colors I used here are Melon Mambo, Night of Navy, and Old Olive.  I did use this card as a swap at convention.  I actually had made so many cards for my classes and clubs that I had several 1 only cards to swap.  I will be posting some others also.

I love the vintage technique and it really suited this Hostess stamp set, found on page 240 of the catalog.  The set contains 11 stamps with beautiful images and lovely verses. You can get this set as one of your benefits when holding a workshop or a book party.  In addition, if you are a hostess in one of my clubs you can also get this set.  Contact me HERE to find out how.

We sure have a ton of flowers in the catalog this year but you can never have enough flowers.  These flowers are from the Hostess stamp set, I like You, on page 237 of the catalog.  This is another set that is perfect for using the Blendabilities, which I did use on this card.  I used Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler.  Beginning July 1st you will be able to order these colors in the Blendabilities.  I will have a class teaching y’all how to use them.  They are so much fun and the colors come out so vibrant!  Don’t you agree?

I needed this little guy to make me feel human again.  Why did he cheer me up?
Well, when I came home from Water Aerobics on Saturday Morning I started getting sick and spent the entire Saturday and most of Sunday in bed.  When I finally started feeling better I knew that I had to get on the computer and start posting some cards to my blog or you would have nothing new tomorrow.
That’s when I spotted this new stamp and decided to create a card with it.  It is called Kinda Koala and can be found on page 113 of the new catalog.  I used the new Blendabilities but you can use our regular markers because I know you do not have the blendabilities yet.  Works just a well.  I use the background stamp Hardwood, and you can find that on page 175.

This was my first attempt at using the new Blendabilities and even though I have used Copics for a few years, these do have a bit of a learning curve.  The main thing you have to do is Practice, practice, practice……You will get the knack of it, it will just take some time.  I used the DSP from the new catalog which is from a small pack called Moonlight that contains some of the new In-colors.

I used our new Blendabilities on this card.  The stamp (Blended Bloom) is a single from the new catalog and is perfect for these markers.  The color I used is Rich Razzleberry.  The inside of the flower I used Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.  The sentiment is from A Dozen Thoughts.

I got my Blendabilites on Wednesday and I have been playing with them ever since.  It is so much fun.  I think y’all are going to love these.  If you go out of the lines when you are coloring you just take our Color Lifter and remove the oops.  I went out of the lines about 6 times on this card and you tell me where it is…..(hint) Trees…..
In addition our new catalog has lots of open lined images to use these with.  I am so excited to show you how.  If you need our new catalog, contact me HERE.
