Blooming with Hope!!!

Blooming with Hope,

Simple and Beautiful! Notice I did not say quick…hehe! It could be quick if you are fast at coloring! This card is very simple though as I just took a half sheet of Whisper White cardstock, folded it in half and stamped various flowers from the Blooming with Hope Hostess Stamp Set with my Memento Ink Pad! Then I got started coloring with my Blendabilities! I will say it now….I am NOT an Artist. That was my Grandfather who could paint with any tool and he was amazing!!! This is the latest painting that I have gotten and plan on having it framed! 🙂


I don’t think I have the patience for being an artist like this but I do enjoy stamping and coloring with my Blendabilities. I really love using stamp sets that make shading on the image super easy. Take a look at the flowers in the card above and you will see those extra lines….I use those lines as my guide. I usually color in the flower with the lightest Blendabilities Marker and then go back with either the Medium or Dark Marker and color around the edges and in those extra lines on the image. Works for me! If you want to see more on how to use your Blendabilities, you can check out this video that Stampin’ Up created! If you want to see some more samples using Blendabilities, check out this one and this one!

Do you enjoy coloring? Do you prefer to color with stamped images like this one or do your own shading? Leave me a comment down below. Also, if you have any tips or tricks, I would love to hear them!!!

Happy Stampin’
