Blended Bloom Cards {Colored with Blendabilities Markers}

red flower

Blended Bloom is a great all occasion stamp for coloring with Blendabilities Markers. The markers come in three shades (dark, medium, and light) which makes shading and blending very easy. For this birthday card, I colored the flower with the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities, then cut it out. The center was colored with Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities.

I used the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder on Very Vanilla card stock, added a strip of cherry cobbler card stock, then adhered the flower on top with stampin dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Endless Birthday Wishes. I used the oval punch to cut it out, then added 2 Basic Rhinestones that I colored with the cherry cobbler Blendabilities. These alcohol markers can color anything–buttons, pearls, rhinestones.

Here is another example of the flower from Blended Bloom, colored with Old Olive Blendabilities MarkersThe card base is In Color Blackberry Bliss, layered with Hello Honey. The sentiment is from a stamp I had on hand. I like the flower colored in green–it reminds me of an artichoke for some reason and looks so pretty.

Birthday Flowers & Dots

I made this card for my husband’s grandmother. He suggested mailing her a card but I told him that was impossible because this one was BIG and bulky!

The card base is chocolate chip, layered with Chocolate Chip DSP in this polka dot pattern. As for the flowers, I made them by punching different colored card stock  with the Scallop Circle Punch. Then, I sprayed the scallop circles with water, crumpled them up, and let them dry. I added a white Basic Brad in the center of each flower, topped with a Rhinestone Jewel.

In the background, I used Apricot Appeal card stock, layered with Whisper White that I ran through the Big Shot with the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder. Using the sponge dauber, I added Certainly Celery ink to the raised portions.

The sentiment is from Bring on the Cake. I stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink on Pretty in Pink card stock, then punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch. To give it more interest, I sponged the edges with Pretty in Pink ink and added white dots with the White Gel Pen.

Cherry Blossom Card for Mother’s Day

I rediscovered River Rock today. I used to like it. I was happy when it came back in the color renovation. Then, I totally forgot about it. Tonight, I broke it out and mixed it with Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, and Pretty in Pink.

This card uses the aforementioned River Rock textured card stock as the base. The stamp is from the Hostess Level 1 Slice of Life (from the Occasions Mini Catalog). I stamped it in Early Espresso ink on Whisper White card stock. I colored in the flowers with Pink Pirouette and Regal Rose Markers. The branches are traced with River Rock Marker.

For the vase, I stamped the image again on scrap paper and colored it in with Baja Breeze, then cut it out and attached it to the card with stampin dimensionals. On each flower, I used Crystal Effects to make them pop.

The sentiment is from Messages for Mom, stamped in Regal Rose ink. The main image layer is paper pierced and matted with Pretty in Pink card stock.

The chocolate chip layer was embossed with the Big Shot and the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder. The ribbon is Baja Breeze Seam Binding, which I scrunched using this technique. To play off the pink flowers in the card, I added some of flowers from the Sweet Hello Simply Sent Kit.
