I am so excited for today’s card…
I actually created this card to go with yesterday’s sketch challenge, but then realized I completely left off the banner detail.
So needless to say, it became today’s post.
But what I love about this card so much are the Stampin Blends markers!!!
I am by no means a coloring expect … In fact, I try to avoid watercoloring. Hence why I haven’t used this stamp set much.
But the Stampin Blends make it soooooo much easier – so user friendly – and very forgiving! Stampin’ Blends are available to order November 1st!!!
My card starts with Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I then took a panel from the Merry Little Christmas, matted it on Basic Black cardstock, and adhered it on an angle to the card front.
I stamped the images from the At Home With You stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I colored in the images using Stampin Blends markers. I used Crumb Cake, Old Olive, and Cherry Cobbler markers. For the welcome mat, I used a Basic Black write marker to color the outside and then stamped it on Whisper White cardstock. I then inked up the Merry Christmas sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped it inside the mat.
I cut out all the images using the coordinating At Home Framelits. I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Basic Black cardstock and then arranged the images around the Whisper White cardstock.
