This morning I uploaded my video which shows how to make the eclipse card we made in class last weekend! I can’t get over how quick and easy they are to make. For the video, I kept with the same design, and same colour scheme.
What an exciting day it is today!
Today, Stampin’ Up! launch heir NEW Stampin Blends alcohol blending markers, and they are fabulous. This is a link for the mini catalogue Stampin’ Up! have released in conjunction with the launch:- Stampin Blends Catalogue
It’s been a long wait, but it’s been well worth it! These pens are brilliant!
If you’re new to papercrafting, and are not familiar with the attributes of alcohol pens, Stampin’ Up! have released four short videos, all of which are here:-
3). Colour Me Happy
I hope you give these pens a try – you won’t be disappointed!
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
Geraldine Homenchuk says
Absolutely stunning, Jan! Thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated the video tutorial. You even have me hooked on the Wild Wasabi green now too. It's lovely, isn't it? I confess, I've tended to not give it as much attention as I've given Garden Green. LOVE the two-coloured sentiment on this card! Thanks for another super tutorial!
Hi, Geraldine. I don't know how I ever overlooked Wild Wasabi!! So pleased you enjoyed this tutorial. ☺ Happy crafting, janB.
Sharon Hendricks says
I really like this one! I wonder about the plain one…what would it look like if only the letters were embossed?
HI, Sharon. That's a very interesting thought! If I get a chance, I might give it a go! Thanks for the idea! ☺☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
Joanne Limoges says
I really love it. But would not want to make it for everyone on my list.
Hi, Joanne. Yes I hear what you're saying. I'd be happy to make say 12 – 15 but no more than that! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.

I really enjoyed watching you make that noel card I was just wondering what was the size letter dies I need to buy look forward to hearing from you
Many thanks, Nikki. The cutting edge of my dies is almost 2 1/8″ tall. If you look for dies that are about 2″ – a bit more or a bit less – they will work well. The only reason I would restrict going too small is they letters might look lost on the size of cardstock. Have fun! xx
