Love Life... A Happy Thing

This card is so much fun!!  I am in love with our Blendabilities Markers!!

Just look at the shadows and highlights on that lemon - they can only be achieved with the new Blendabilities Markers!!

And... right now, with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration, you can get a set of Blendabilities Markers for FREE!!

We start this card with an Old Olive Card Base, then add a layer of Whisper White Card Stock, followed by a layer of the Brights (Daffodil Delight) Designer Series Paper Stack (to the bottom of the card). 

We also tied some of the new Painted Blooms Cotton Twine around these layers - this new twine is so soft and yummy (I think because it's a bit thicker than our traditional Baker's Twine!).

Brights Designer Series Paper Stack  130134  $21.95

Painted Blooms Cotton Twine  137873  $6.95

Then, the fun part begins...

We stamped the lemon from the "A Happy Thing" Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set (yours FREE with a $50 order!) with our Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Next, we colored the outside areas of our lemon with the medium shade of the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities Markers, then the inside of the lemon with the lightest shade.  Then, we used our Color Lifter to remove just a hint of the color from the middle of the lemon to give it the effect of the sun shining brightly down on it!

We also stamped "love life" from the "A Happy Thing" Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set.

Tuxedo Black Memento Ink  132708  $5.95

Daffodil Delight Blendabilities  130998  $9.95

Stampin' Blendabilities Alcohol  Marker Color Lifter  129369  $4.95

Finally, we layered an Old Olive Square piece (that we punched a 2 1/2" circle from) over top of the lemon image and added two Daffodil Delight Candy Dots to this piece.

I hope you enjoyed this card!!  Thanks so much to Mary Fish for her inspiration on this card!!
