Control Freaks November Blog Hop!



Just Add Color Designer Paper Meets Stampin' Blends! Hi Stampers and welcome to our November Control Freaks Blog Hop! You may be arriving here to my blog on your own or from the fabulous Cindy Elam's blog. Didn't she have some awesome projects? Our theme this month is "Happy Holidays". Once you view my projects, I will send you to the next blog so you can take the whole tour!

I have three projects for you tonight and I really can't tell you which one is my favorite, I LOVE them all! The Stampin' Blends I used on all three projects are:

  • Old Olive
  • Pink Pirouette
  • Crumb Cake
  • Cherry Cobbler
  • Daffodil Delight


The Just Add Color Designer Paper was so perfect for all three of my cards. I decided to stay with the same color combination on all three cards. Here's the first card:



My card layers are as follows:
  • Card Base: Crumb Cake Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score at 4-1/4"  and fold.
  • Layer #2: Merry Little Christmas Designer Paper 5-1/4" x 4".
  • Layer #3: Just Add Color Designer Paper 4-3/4" x 2-3/4". Color with the Stampin' Blends.
  • Sentiments: Merry Cafe stamped using Cherry Cobbler Ink and hand-cut.
  • Embellish: Green Sprigs dipped in Embossing Paste and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and a bow using the 1/8" Real Red Solid Ribbon

If you haven't purchased the Stampin' Blends yet...YOU REALLY NEED TOO! I just LOVE to color with these. Can you tell I'm addicted to these new alcohol markers? I hope you totally enjoyed all three of my Stampin' Blends projects. I will now send you off to visit my teammate Julie Davison's blog. I just know she's going to wow you with her projects!

RemARKably Created November Blog Hop!



Stampin' Blends are being featured for our November RemARKably Created Blog Hop. Welcome and enjoy the inspiration! I will direct you to the next person in the blog hop at the end of my post. 

By now, anyone can purchase our new Stampin' Blends alcohol markers....not just demonstrators.  For those of you that now own these markers, aren't they fabulous? We as Stampin' Up! demonstators got to play with these a few weeks before they were added to the Stampin' Up! Online Store and oh, are they SO addicting! For my project today, I am using my markers on the Just Add Color Designer Paper. This paper is PERFECT for coloring:



Here are the layers I used on today's card:
  1. Card Base is Smoky Slate Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score at 5-1/2" and fold.
  2. Rich Razzleberry Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  3. Just Add Color Designer Paper 5" x 3-3/4".  Colored with the Smoky Slate Blends. Glue to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  4. Vellum Cardstock 5" x 3-3/4". Glue to card front over the white layer.


The Vellum Cardstock layered over the designer paper, tones down the gray feathers but you can still see all of the detail I colored. I also colored 4 more feathers using the Smoky Slate, Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry and Night Of Navy Blends. All 4 were hand-cut and glued in place.


To finish off my card, I hand-cut the two sentiments from the Hello Friend stamp set. Now it's time to visit the next person in the blog hop. Reminder that you are now visiting Debbie Henderson from Debbie's Designs. Thanks for stopping in today!
