Blended Bloom, Lots of Thanks


I was needing a thank you card and realized that I had used them all! Yikes! That’s an emergency run to my craft room!! What would say “thank you” better than the magnificent Blended Bloom stamp set?! I actually hadn’t inked this flower stamp up yet and was just a little hesitant to color it with the Blendies pens. In the end, I decided that I would give it a go and resort to Plan B early in the game if I felt it wasn’t going well. I started with the darkest shade of Pumpkin Pie and went around the perimeter to keep from going outside the lines. So far, so good! Then, using the medium shade I colored more into the petals. Then colored the whole flower (excluding the center) with the lightest shade. I then started over with a second coat of the lightest shade, then took the medium shade and colored in the little areas. The center was done with Calypso Coral Blendies. The rest of the card was super fast and easy, so this card was made in very little time at all.
