All Occasion Card Class/Club - Wednesday, August 13 - Card #1

Here is the first card we made at class this week.  I am LOVING the new Blendabilities Markers!!
Just look at that amazing flower we created!!

We start with a Soft Suede card base, then add a layer of Coastal Cabana card stock embossed with the Mosaic Embossing folder.  Next, we added a strip of Park Lane Designer Series paper layered over a strip of Whisper White card stock.  We also stamped "With Sympathy" from the Bloom with Hope Hostess Stamp set in Soft Suede ink and punched it out with the Modern Label Punch.  You can earn this hostess set with a qualifying purchase of $150 or more - or join one of my clubs and get this stamp set the month you are the hostess!!.   

Then, the fun really begins....  We stamped that beautiful flower (also from the Bloom with Hope Hostess Stamp Set) in Tuxedo Black Memento ink - this is the recommended ink to use with our new Blendabilities markers (which are alcohol based) because it won't smear like the Black Stazon (which is also alcohol based) or Basic Black (water-based) ink pad would.  Next, we punched the top of the tag using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and added some Pool Party 1/4" Cotton Ribbon to the tag.  Then, we shaded that flower in with our new Blendabilities markers - the Coastal Cabana markers - we shaded the outside lines of the flower with the darkest shade, added a bit more shading with the medium shade near the edges and then filled in the remainder of white space and blended it all together with the lightest shade marker.  We used the skinny tip of the marker for all 3 steps!!  It is so much fun!!
