Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop – Stampin’ Blends

These new Stampin’ Blends are so exciting. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them in the pre-order. So the Latte Girls are bringing you Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop – Stampin’ Blends. 

Now you can download the information brochure HERE.

Here’s my project using the NEW Stampin’ Blends:

I could have used the Color Me Happy Project Kit and Stamp Set but decided to show you other stamp images you can use the Stampin’ Blends with. Here’s a closer look at the sentiment piece:

Now I used the Dark Pink Pirouette on the ‘shadow’ bit and then did the rest in the Light Pink Pirouette and blended then a bit. Oh, and that ‘thank you’ is from the Color Me Happy stamp set available November 1. Here’s a look at the girl from Beautiful You

Looks a bit like Bermuda Bay doesn’t it but I used Soft Sky light and dark on the dress and Light and Dark Calypso Coral on the hat. I used the Light Gray, just lightly dotting around the left side of the image and then the Color Lifter to sort of smooch the colour and leave just the faintest of shadows. My colouring’s not great. I discovered you need hardly any pressure with these Stampin’ Blends. Here’s another sample I made using images from Basket of Wishes:

On this sample I’ve used Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Light and Dark Old Olive, Light and Dark Calypso Coral, Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler and the Color Lifter. The Stampin’ Blends really make your project come together quickly.

My last sample for today is also from Basket of Wishes:

The above is just the basket and vegetables from Basket of Wishes. I’ve used Light and Darl Crumb Cake on the basket and then Light and Dark of Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler. I think that’s the lot. Anyway when I finished colouring I made a card


This card was made and photographed (can’t you tell) after a full on afternoon of colouring with Stampin’ Blends. I used to hate colouring but I tell you Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils and Stampin’ Blends make it sooooooo easy to loos track of time and colour to your hearts content.

  1. What lovely cards Libby. You’ve been busy. These markers really are wonderful to colour with and I’ve found that you can perfect your own style with them with a little playing. Thanks for consistently being part of these weekly blog hops!
