Another Season of Style
THANKS--Pick a Pumpkin



Probably most of you know, I just don't like to color when I stamp!

It's just a rare thing.



Part of it is I feel it takes longer!

And I'm a "stamp-n-go" kind o' girl!



Another thing is when I'm demoing, I try to be quick, so I'm not BORING you!!



But one last thing is I just don't feel like I color well!

I don't have a good concept of shading and the effects of lighting.



Well, I have to say, the Stampin' Blends made me look pretty impressive!

I'm so happy!!


Floral Statements, Stampin' Blends,


Look at my leaves!!!



I followed some of the techniques from the videos Stampin' Up! published.

CLICK HERE to see my original post with all these videos.



I used Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry and the Color Lifter.



2 things that helped me feel most comfortable were:

  • Working with a small area at a time, cuz they blend best when wet.
  • Starting with the darker shade first and covering it with the lighter and continuing blending to an UNcolored area.



OH--and DON'T FORGET you need the Memento ink pad for your base image with these markers!--AND let it dry before continuing to add color!!




In case you didn't check it out yet--and so YOU don't have to do the math--there is NO financial advantage to ordering the whole kit of markers at once.



It's EASIER ordering 1 item. But you don't save money.



Ok, so I also mentioned today's project as a little reminder of the November Paper Pumpkin Kit....


As I expected, the Buffalo Plaid was prominent in the October kit. Yay!!


And I expect the November kit to have the white version in some way.

Thank you, Dalia! I know—it IS hard to fit or see the color name on the markers. It’s not designed for our “old eyes.” ;)

This is lovely, Stephanie!
I just received my set and excited to try them.
Only one thing to comment, which I did not like, is the fact that the color name on the marker is very tiny and almost illegible. Had a hard time to pair them.
