I spent part of the day on Sunday coloring with the Stampin’ Blends markers.  Oh my….they are so special.  I like them more every time I use them.  There have been many examples of the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper being colored with the blends.  That is what I did.  Here is one of the cards.

You’re Inspiring, 145808


I named the photo for the stamp set I used.  But the real star of the card is the Petal Passion DSP.  I cut a strip of the 12 X 12 DSP into three 4 X 4 pieces.  I then colored each of them differently.  I was really enjoying the easy flow and no lines of the Stampin’ Blends.  I used pretty much all of the colors in the three pieces.  Well, maybe not the browns.

After I finished coloring and decided to do a regular A2 card and not a 4X4, I chose a simple but special sentiment to go with my flowers.  The sentiment is from the You’re Inspiring stamp set.  It is focused towards Easter, but I do believe the sentiments are very special indeed.  So after I stamped it and debated on doing something additional, I looked at it, and said “no”.

I mentioned that I did three pieces.  Here are the others.  I will make cards with them later.  What I wanted to show you is the background for each.  The two colored pieces are sort of hard to tell apart, but hopefully you can see the difference in the backgrounds. The far right is the Light Pool Party, middle is Dark Pool Party, and the card is Light Bermuda Bay.   I think they look like wallpaper or gift wrap.  Wouldn’t they make a great gift for someone?  Hhhmmm…



Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you like this card.  I would appreciate hearing your comments.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.  I hope you have an awesome day!
