Two for Tuesday with Blends! - Color Me Happy Sneak Peek

Happy Tuesday!  I'm so excited to share these two cards with you today.  I made these cards with my mother last week and planned to keep them for a blog post later on, but I just couldn't wait any longer.  I hope you like them as much as I do!

If you have not heard, Stampin' Up! will be releasing new artist-quality alcohol markers on November 1st!!

The new "Blends" are very easy to use (and I have never picked up a Copic in my life!) - I think they blend easily together within the same color duo, color family or even as shown below with mixtures of multiple colors.  The stamp set I used is called Color Me Happy and will be available as supplies last.

For this card, I masked the lanterns on top of each other and colored each one with multiple Blends.  I used the Daffodil Delight Blends on each one so the lanterns have the glowing look to them.

The "so happy for you" sentiment is also from the Color Me Happy stamp set.  I finished the card by adding some Gold Metallic Thread and coloring each lantern with Wink of Stella.

The second card actually came about because I got ink on the bottom right of the card front.  Of course this happened after I colored all of the lanterns.  I decided to look through my stamp collection and find a different sentiment to go with the lanterns.  The Watts of Occasions stamp set was perfect!

I added more Gold Metallic Thread and Wink of Stella - so pretty :)

If you know me, you know I don't make many simple cards.  These are some of my favorites I've made all year!!  I hope you enjoy them too!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
