Blendabilities are the Secret Ingredient

Want to know the secret to really great card making (while keeping it super simple)?

One word: Blendabilities!

These alcohol based markers by Stampin’ Up! are my favourite new product of the year.  With 16 colours to choose from, they coordinate with colours already in our 4 colour families and they make any line-drawn stamp set look absolutely artistic!

Check out this very simple, line-drawn stamp set, “Cheerful Critters” from the 2015 Occasions Catalogue:

Cute right?  But watch the magic happen as we use Blendabilities to colour this in for a very simple card:

My friend Jamie Westerhof gave me a similar card made with the bear in the set and I started playing around with it to get this little cutie.  I love that it could be a congratulations card or a birthday card.
