There are 10 pink Blends markers for 2021-22! I thought it would be nice to have cardstock and embellishment swatches to speed up deciding on which to use.

In the end I have a great swatch tool to pull out whenever needed. I might need to swatch ALL the Blends in this manner.

I wanted to softly age this project with some muted tans.

I found that a perfect Blends color to help age Basic White!

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.

This week I had the pleasure of crafting in the flesh with my mom and her friend Shelley. I haven't crafted with someone other than my husband since last summer!  And I had to bring one new bundle - Quiet Meadow.

What a busy week! I had so much fun yesterday teaching coloring techniques using Stampin' Blends. They are such an easy medium to use. I am so, so glad that Stampin' Up! came out with their own alcohol markers! This means that the Copic classes I took so many years ago are put to good use in my Blends coloring classes.
