BLENDED PINE

Just a quick post today.  I know I have been a bit scarce lately, and I do apologise.  I have every intention to getting back to posting regularly.  It might just be a bit longer yet, before that happens.  Rest assured, I am still here creating!

I just wanted to share my version of a card I have seen in Blogland and on Pinterest.  I don't know who first thought of the idea (thank you whoever you are!), but I thought it was beautiful and just had to give it a go myself.
  I own exactly two pottles of coloured embossing ink - that is all!!  It is just tough luck if a want a little colour on dark card then, isn't it?!  Or is it?  Well, let me tell you, all you need is White embossing powder and Stampin' Up!'s new Blendabilities Markers.  That is how I have coloured this gorgeous Christmas card.  Emboss first, colour second, DONE!  The colours are vibrant and don't smear because the markers are alcohol based and dry quickly.  Just another good reason to invest in a few (or all) packs of Blendabilities.
If you would like to order one or more of the items I used to create today's project, simply click on the items above to be taken to my Online Store.  If you live anywhere in New Zealand, I would love to be your Demonstrator.   Please allow "Demonstrator contact" so I can thank you properly when you place your order!

  3. WOWZERS! This is just gorgeous, Paula. I own a lot of embossing powers, but I love what you did here. I am going to have to try it... I haven't used my Blendys much, but now I have another chance to try something different. Thanks for the inspiration!
