This is such a nice kit! I love the unique shaped card bases and that it works seemlessly for masculine and feminine cards.

I demonstrate many coloring techniques using Stampin' Blends markers.

Very few added supplies were used in the video and aside from some sort of small embellishments. The kit really does work well without any added supplies.
