Blends & Birds - Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Hop

Hello and welcome to another blog hop from the Artisan Design Team!  I hope you've enjoyed following the team this year.  It's been an honor to create alongside 19 other gals from the globe representing Stampin' Up!  I can hardly believe this amazing experience is almost over!  And can it really be December tomorrow??

Maybe this little birdie can help cheer me up!  I absolutely love using the new Stampin' Blends from Stampin' Up!.  Have you had a chance to try them yet?  They are very easy to use and the ability to purchase a single marker (in select colors) makes this an affordable option for coloring.

For this card, I used the Color Me Happy stamp set and the Color Me Happy Project Kit.  You can bundle these two items and save!

The birdie was colored with both the Daffodil Delight Dark & Light Stampin' Blend Markers.  The beak and feet were colored with the Pumpkin Pie Dark & Light Stampin' Blend Markers.  The background papers are part of the card kit.

I also used the sequins from the card kit as well.  You can even use the itty bitty circles that are the insides of the sequins.  Adhere with the Fine Tip Glue Pen for best results.
Finally, I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels that I colored with the Night of Navy Dark Stampin' Blends Marker.  Color the pearls or rhinestones on the packaging it comes with to make sure you cover the entire jewel.  This dries very quickly too!

I hope you like my card.  A sweet little hello to send to a friend!  Make sure to travel around the globe and check out all of the creations from the Artisan team!  Next up is my friend Jennifer from Jersey!
