Taking a quick break from sharing projects from the Occasions Catalogue to share I card I made last month for a friends youngest who turned 5. She has three older brothers so wanted to make a really ‘girlie’ card.
I don’t own any kids stamps as my nieces and nephews are older but I really wanted to use this stamp set – so thanks to my fellow demo Patrice for coming to my rescue 🙂
I’ve coloured the images in using the new Stampin’ Blends which are alcohol markers. These are available in the Occasions Catalogue (page 30 – 31). The Stampin’ Blends come in 12 colours – with a light and a dark in each colour. There are also three other colours – Ivory, Bronze and a Colour Lifter.
For this card I’ve used a combination of all the colours – some light, some dark. The Ivory was used for her skin. The card base is Sweet Sugarplum and the number is cut out using the Large Numbers Framelits.
I must admit I am enjoying using the Stampin’ Blends for colouring in – it’s very relaxing. Always stamp your outline image in Black Memento Ink – page 200 of the Annual Catalogue.
I’ll be back tomorrow to share some projects I made as a Display Stamper for OnStage using products from the Petal Passion Suite. See you then.
