I always purchase both the light and dark of each color. Always. To me, it's definitely a no brainer
Now that the new Annual Catalog is ready to be released in just a few short weeks -- and I finally received my copy of it two days ago! -- there are even more new colors to choose from! I am so excited to add to my stash of these wonderful markers!
This stamp set is one of the freebies that had been available during Sale-A-Bration, but, like so many of my sets, I will never give this one up! Isn't it lovely? And it's so perfect for using with the Stampin' Blends.
For my card, because I had a few Basic Pearls on my card, I wanted to repeat a little of that dimension and did so by popping up the top two layers on the card base.
These Blends are so easy to use -- so user friendly -- that I feel there is hardly any learning curve at all. You can color like a professional your first time around! Really.
Another really cool feature of the Stampin' Blends is that you can color stuff other than stamped images. Take a look at the pearls in the centers of five of the flowers below. I simply colored Basic Pearls with Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blend, and I have a perfect match for the centers of my flowers!
Have you tried your hand with the Stampin' Blends yet? If not, give them a try! You won't regret it. And, now soon you'll have even more fun colors to choose from. In the current Annual Catalog, you can check out the Stampin' Blends on pages 204 and 205.
If you have any questions at all about Stampin' Blends, please don't hesitate to ask me! I would love to enable you!
