OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is the second of three designs. This is a quick and simple birthday card. The colors are vibrant and with the tinted rhinestones, shouts CELEBRATE!! (Note: Daffodil Delight Blendabilities was used to tint the rhinestones. It is not listed in the supplies since all Blendabilities have been dropped from SU! product line). I absolutely cannot find the card I used for inspiration. I have spent the last 30 minutes trying to find it on my Pinterest Board; to no avail. Once I find it, I’ll share the link.


???????????????????????????????This is the first of three designs for the March Make-n-Take Class. My inspiration came from . Since I had to use SU! punches to build my bear, it took several hours of making, remaking, remaking again, and remaking again, the hat, the hat rim, repositioning the ears at least three times, etc.  This little fellow did turn out quite adorable.
The supply list is below excluding some retired items as follows: 1/4″ square punch, SU! Kiss Me stamp set for background, the eyes can be punched from the three heart punch or cut using a Cricut.

I know we said a sad farewell to the Blendabilities, but many of us have a set or two and will continue to use them. I had a left over scrap piece of cardstock which had been embossed with the Manhattan Floral embossing folder (so sad to say it is retired) and I decided to play around with my Blendabilities markers. I used the Cherry Cobbler (two lightest markers) and the Daffodil Delight (two lightest markers) and started blending. I added a touch of blue to the floral background with Bashful Blue re-inker and an Aqua Painter. The final touch was taking the color lifter and going along the edge of the embossed areas to pull off some ink and add highlights to the flowers to make the POP.



blendabilitiesStampin’ Up! has experienced quality issues with the Blendabilities product line. Due to the nature of the defect and the manufacturer being unable to correct the problem in a manner that would meet Stampin’ Up! high quality standards and provide a stable, long-term solution, the Blendabilities product line has been discontinued.

I loved this product line and I am very sad to see it go.
