RemARKably Creative Blog Tour-Stampin’ Blends

remarkablycreativeblogtourWelcome to the RemARKably Creative Blog Tour where demonstrators will wow you with samples showcasing the fabulously fun-to-use, new Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers.  You are at Candy Rattray,, and the full list of blogs on the tour is below.

So after a couple weeks of being absent in blogosphere with a schedule that just did not allow me to get here, I'm sharing the birthday card I made for my daughter Tiffany's birthday early this month.  I knew I wanted to use the new Stampin' Blends, and I wanted a garden image since my hubby and I were giving her a family pass to our San Antonio Botanical Gardens.  

I turned to the Just Add Color Designer Series Paper and found a lovely watering can image that would help me achieve the look I wanted–modern yet feminine.  I normally avoid fussy cutting like the plague!  But the images in Just Add Color DSP enticed me to break out my scissors after having a relaxing time coloring with my new Stampin' Blends Markers.


This is the very first full project I made with my Stampin' Blends, and I was able to achieve the look I wanted with no fuss.  It was quick and easy but doesn't look like it would be!  I popped my little watering can up on Stampin' Dimensionals and added just a touch of black lace (Vintage Crochet Trim) and a single black rhinestone.  

The gorgeous DSP is from the delightfully versatile Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper in the Holiday Catalog and the greeting stamp is from Pieces & Patterns rubberstamp set.  (I love the modern, feminine font!)  I'm breaking away from my self-imposed limits with birthday cards–alway insisting on a birthday greeting for the front of the card.  For this card, I put the birthday greeting on the inside!
