We needed to make another stack of thank you cards – looks like we will be spending the weekend making another stack too. This time, Jackie used the Stampin’ Blends to color in the globe image from the Going Far stamp set. The deal we made was she embossed the paper, stamped and colored the images and I would cut the images out. I think she got a better deal!
This was the first time Jackie used the blends. She is 15 so she is old enough to use “Mom’s good markers”. She used a few different color combinations and then finally settled on the blue. I explained that I wasn’t the best with shading and needed to really take a class on how to best use alcohol style makers. We did watch the the Stampin’ Up! video on blending. After a few practices she began to feel a little more comfortable on using the light and dark markers.
Due to the amount of cards we send a month, we have been using the note cards – they are a bit smaller than a standard card – but the simplicity of having a pre-cut and scored card with envelope has been super handy!
