A Marking We Will Go....A Marking We Will Go.....

Yippee...Ya Hoo!  Are you with me?  Are you doing the Happy Friday Dance?
Well, I sure am....I don't know about you but this has been a long week...and a cold week too....okay...we'll say...chilly.....
Today, I thought I would focus on our Stampin' Write Markers......
Stampin’ Write Markers are one of the must-have supplies in my stampin' space, and I want to show you three ways to use them to color images.  Since they come in EVERY Stampin’ Up! color, they coordinate with all the card stock, inks, and embellishments you use on your cardmaking and paper crafting projects. 

1.  Direct to card stock:  When you want a very saturated color for an image, apply the Marker color direct to card stock. 
2.  Apply with Blender Pen:  This is probably the coloring technique I use most often.  The effect is subtler than with the direct-to-card stock method, and you have more leeway to shade and blend the colors. 
To use Markers with a Blender Pen, use something plastic as a palette to put the color on.  Then pick up some of the ink with the Blender Pen.
3.  Ink a single stamp with several colors:  You’ll love the effect you get when you ink different parts of a stamp with different colors–especially when coloring flowers. 
To color the stamp, use the side of the brush end of the Marker to apply the ink to the rubber.  This will help keep the brush tip from breaking down.
You may be thinking, if I have ink pads, why do I need the Markers, too?  Although you can pick up color with a Blender Pen from the edge of an ink pad, the other two techniques are things you can’t do with a pad.  In addition, wouldn’t you like to sign your handmade card and address the envelope in a color that matches the rest of your project?  It just makes for a classier presentation than using any old ball-point pen!

In fact, when I’m helping a new stamper figure out what to order to get started, I often suggest investing in a collection of Markers instead of a collection of ink pads, which cost significantly more money.  Along with a pad of Black StazOn, a new stamper will be able to maximize his or her stamping dollars and still do most things that ink pads do.

A great way to purchase the markers is considering joining my  Marker Club....Four stampers are needed to participate....and you each take a turn hosting the you'll also get host benefits me today if you need more information on's a lot of fun....and a great way to affordably get an entire case of markers plus coordinating cardstock and accessories as well!

The Markers are best stored on their side so that the tips won’t dry out, and the case makes this easy while the chart shows you where to find a particular color.  It’s so much easier than pawing through a box of loose Markers!

I hope you enjoy experimenting with these three ways to use Stampin’ Write Markers, and find them to be a must-have tool in your craft room.

Have a SUper Stampin' Day!

Stampin' Up! Ultimate Blog Hop in Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness

 I'm super excited to be a part of this fun blog hop.... When I heard of this fun hop from Janet Wakeland....I had to jump at the chance to be a part of this.  
 Breast Cancer Awareness is a very important cause...just just for the month of October for it should be brought to our attention every day....but we especially have made October the month to remind us of how important it is to be tested.....
On a personal note, two years back I wasn't feeling well.  I went for the blood work, x-rays and all the normal types of testing....I was then sent for an abdominal ultrasound and there was something that showed to further understand what it was, I was then sent for more x-rays and a CAT was made quite clear that I had a lemon-sized mass in my left after discussing it at length with my urologist the decision was made to remove the kidney. We didn't know at the time what it was, malignant, non malignant, had to spread, was it encapsulat…

Out With The Old...In With the New Blog Hop

Thanks for stopping by today....I would like to welcome to our Blog Hop....we are saying good-bye to the old...and welcoming in the new!  Are you ready?
Let's put on our hopping shoes and go!
So...let's take a look....can you see what's old and what's new?

First off...the bear was used from the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set Item # 142043 along with the coordinating punch Cookie Cutter Builder Punch Item # 140396. 

The new is the Lift Me Up Bundle Item # 144711 (w) and 144712 (c).  The stamp set is Lift Me Up and the Thinlits are Up & Away...the clouds were also done using the Thinlits Dies. 

I also used our Cardstock Vellum and cut out the coordinating pieces for the back of the balloon...along with the basket thinlit. 

I love this little bear....he's not just for babies and Christmas...I can see so many other things done using him.
Thanks for stopping by....time to hop on over to the next blog!

This is a SUper easy home decor' project to create....
