Stampin' Blends Club (and another Christmas in the Making beauty!)

Hello everybody! Happy Halloween!! 

Have you heard about Stampin' Blends? 
They are Stampn' Up's new alcohol marker! 
And, they are being released tomorrow, November 1st!


I've been busy playing with mine (Demos got to order early) and I am in LOVE with them. They are very easy to use and really make you look like you know how to color! I'm not the worlds best colorer (just as my mom!!), but thee make me feel like I am! 
(Make sure you come back tomorrow for a new video tutorial!)

I showed you this card before from the Christmas In The Making set and now I have a second card fro the same set. I just love these vintage scenes. Doesn't she look fancy colored in with my Stampin' Blends? 

The two things I love most about Stampin' Blends are: 

1. No marker lines! I hate when I try to color with regular markers and it leaves all those streaks. These markers do NOT do that!

2. Blending and shading. These markers come in two shades for each color (light and dark) and allows you to easily add shadows, highlighs and dimensions. 
  
The first release of these markers will include 12 colors, two shades each plus a single ivory, bronze and color lifter. They are dual tipped, one side has a nub and one side has a brush tip. 

The complete set of markers (27) is $121.50. You can see the full brochure here. These would make a great item for Santa or hubby to put under the tree. Or maybe you have a mom or sister who would swoon for these. Or maybe, you want to buy them for yourself!! But, if you can't afford to purchase them all at once, I've got a club starting in December to help you build up your supply while learning to use them and getting a few bonuses!! Check out the full details below. 

Pink Buckaroo Stampin’ Blends Color Club
December 2017-March 2018

Want all the Stampin’ Blends, but can’t afford to purchase them all immediately? Join my Stampin’ Blends club and let me help you budget them out over four months while also learning how to use them!

This club will run from December 2017 to March 2018
Each month, you will order a minimum of $31.50 (three marker sets plus one of the singles) online using our club Hostess Code (If you already have the markers, purchase anything you want.) 
In turn, I will send you a video tutorial and two projects plus a special embellishment  in the mail all four months! 
There will be an additional BONUS product the fourth month!

How will this work?
Each month, I will email you on the first of the month with the three colors you will need for that month’s projects. You will have until the 15th of the month to put in your online order. If you don’t put in your order, you will not receive the video or package. I will use the Hostess Rewards from these orders to purchase a special embellishment for every member! Within a week, I will then mail you a video showing you two projects using your new markers. I will also mail you the two make and takes (and surprise embellishment) so you can actually make the projects! Each month, I will only use one stamp set for your projects (you will have to stamp, I will do everything else.) I will let you know what the stamp set is on the first of the month and you can add it to your order or you can use what you already have at home. Each video will focus on different ways to use your markers, how to shade, how to use the Color Lifter and how to use them to make your work of art look amazing. 

What else do I need?
There are two things you must have as well: a Memento Black stamp pad (this is what SU recommends using with these Blends) and Whisper White Cardstock. 

What if I already have the markers?
If you already have the markers and want to join, you can order anything you want each month! As long as you meet the minimum order, you will still get all the benefits! If you want to order other things with your markers, you are more than welcome to! The last three months will be sale a bration and you might want to bump your orders to receive a free item! 

Think this club is for you! Sign up here. (Nothing is due now.) 
You will place your first order via the Stampin' Up website the first two weeks of December.

Fancy Friday Blog Hop- Painted Autumn

Hello everyone and welcome to the October Fancy Friday Blog Hop! 
Our theme this month is the beautiful Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. We could use the actual paper, the colors or even the watercolor look as inspiration. As you might have noticed over the last couple of months, I adore this paper! I have used it a bunch! So, I was excited to do one more thing to really showcase the paper itself with out a lot of distractions.  

I saw these cute little succulents at my local grocery store and knew they needed to come home with me! I repotted them and decided to use them as a little gift for the girls' teachers. 

I took the green pattern pieces and wrapped them around the pots like a cone. I cut off most of what was below the pot and then folded it under the pot. 


I made some simple tags using Watercolor Paper, a wash of Daffodil Delight ink and the sentiment from Thankful Thoughts. 

I also punched a couple of leaves from the left over DSP using the Leaf Punch. It's under the Gold Binder Clip.

And that's it! Nothing fancy, but with paper this beautiful, you really don't need anything fancy. The paper does all the work! 
The girls were excited to take these to school this week! We love spoiling their teachers! 

Alright, it's time to hop along to the other designers. Up next is the very talented Marissa Gunn! Thanks for hopping! 


Join me for Facebook Friday! 
I'm making THREE projects this week!
