It was a dreary rainy Saturday morning so it felt like a great time to unwrap and play with the Color Me Happy Project Bundle. This stamp set and card project kit were designed for use with the new Stampin’ Blends. I posted the Thank You card on my Facebook page Saturday a.m. and said I would make the other three designs as demonstrated in the project kit flyer, but I only made it through one more following Stampin’ Up! guidelines. It’s just too hard not to play and add a personal style or tweak to the cards, just as I do with Paper Pumpkin each month.
I really love the Stampin’ Blends but feel I have to practice a bit more with shading. They are so easy to work with though, it was very relaxing! Visit my Stampin’ Up! demonstrator website (Click Here) to see all the Stampin’ Blend color options or watch the Stampin’ Up! video on YouTube to learn more about the blending markers and the Color Me Happy project kit.

This is a picture of the cards as designed. I didn’t change too much. I wanted a colorful “Oh Hello” instead of black and I added an extra flower to the “So Happy For You” card. I will have them available to practice as one of the card choices for November 13 stamp night. (Please let me know if you are planning to attend.)
I will be busy working on swaps for On Stage in Salt Lake City but will post again before leaving and then again from Salt Lake City. I am so excited to see the new products for 2018!

Happy November, wow, how did that happen?! The beginning of the month and we have a brand new item to share with you. I mentioned them in October but they are now available and I finally had some time to experiment so that I could share them with you. My Stamping – Short and Sweet weekly Facebook Live featured the blending markers and some of the ways I was coloring with them. I put the items together in a picture to share here but if you have access to Facebook, you will be able to listen to some of the tips I shared. I am sure we will be learning more as demonstrators create and share things they have learned.
I used two retired stamps that were introduced in the time frame of the original markers. I loved them with the blenders then so I wanted to use them again. So Pretty! Then I stamped leaves using Memento Black ink (recommended so that it will prevent bleeding of the colors when you use the blending markers) and Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake card stock. I love using the blending markers on the dark leaves!
I would also like to share the Stampin’ Up! video on YouTube featuring the Color Me Happy bundle, stamps and card project kit. I ordered the bundle today so we will each be able to work with a card during Stamp Night on November 13 after I return home from Convention. I am sure they will feature the Stampin’ Blends and share lots of tips with us.

Each Stampin’ Blend marker can be purchased individually @ $4.50 or the Combo pack (light and dark of each color) @ $9.00. You can purchase the entire set of 27 markers for $121.50. A great way to purchase the whole set is to join my team as a demonstrator. You can join and order $125 in product for $99. To maintain status and get the best discount on your product you will need to order $300 a quarter. But the good news is that by joining during 4th quarter of 2017 (Oct – Dec) the quarter we are already in, you have until March 2018 (end of 1st quarter). We will be receiving the new Occasions Catalog next week and all new demonstrators are able to pre-order in December. Wouldn’t that be exciting! Just send me a note if you would like to discuss this further. I would love to have you on my team!
Click here to visit my Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator website to see all the color options, information regarding the Color Me Happy project kit, stamp set or Bundle pricing for the kit and stamps. My bundle should arrive on Friday so I will try to post some of the cards this weekend.
