Hello and thanks for stopping by today! Today is the January Creating Kindness Design Team Blog Hop. Below are links to all of the blogs in this Hop, showing more ideas with the theme of “celebrate”! I have chosen to create and color a card with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers and some new stamps/dies.

Amazing You stamps & Celebrate You Thinlits Dies
I love a word die and this set has it all! Celebrate You Thinlits are perfect for pairing with another word die or a stamp set. Speaking of stamp sets, Amazing You stamp set is made to match these dies. Best part yet? The are free with a qualified purchase. Sale-a-bration has stepped up the offerings this season by making available not only stamp sets and paper/embellishments, but also offering premium choices as well. These dies are earned at a higher threshold than a small stamp set and they are so worth it.
No-line style coloring
Are you a fan of outlined coloring or no-line coloring? I tend to like both and select a coloring style to match my project. This project spoke to me to be a no-line coloring style using the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. How it’s different is in how the initial image is stamped. For a visual demonstration, check out the video link below.
Tips for creating this project:
When my finished image will have pink or red tones, I’ll start off by stamping with a pink dye ink.
While working color over the stamped image, the stamp lines are not bright but they are still visible as a guide. This is helpful in being a guide for coloring. I also keep the stamp case with a photo of the stamp at arm’s length as a guide.
With a White Chalk Marker, it’s easy to add highlights to the finished image. Same goes for a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.
