Inky Friends: Blending a Year of Cheer: April

No automatic alt text available.

Welcome to my Inky Friends blog hop! We are focused on the new Blends markers. You may be hopping around in order or backwards or just jumping in where you feel like it. It doesn't matter as we are all linked together so you will see everyone's awesome creations if you just keep clicking the links around! How fun is that?

If you are going in order, you would have come to me from Staci where she featured the month of March. If you are going backwards, you would have found me from Rhonda's May creations.

I have the month of April. In Wisconsin the month of April is usually cold and wet! Even with that as the weather, the birds are starting to come out. I love hearing them sing their wonderful songs! Because of that, I decided to use the stamp set Best Birds.

My first card is a sweet anniversary card. I colored the two birds and the branch with the Blends. 


I wanted to use a little different color scheme with the next card. The Rich Razzleberry and Pumpkin Pie markers help to achieve this darling little birdie.


In Wisconsin, you can always tell spring is here when the robins start showing up! I created this card with the robins of spring in mind.


I couldn't resist doing a scrapbook layout with this set.


I have never used any alcohol markers before these Blends. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy they are to use! I was a bit apprehensive to give them a try and waited until the last minute to make anything for this hop. After I got started, I couldn't figure out why I was so scared of some markers! They worked wonderfully! Now I'm looking forward to using them some more!

April is the start of warming up and the wonderful birds start singing their songs again. I hope you enjoyed my creations inspired by April. Now I must send you off to see either what Staci has created for March with the previous button, or what Rhonda did for May with the next button!

Come back next week to see the close ups of the scrap pages and to get the recipes for creating these on your own!

Happy Stampin'!

Home for the Holidays

Remember those cable knit sweaters? This embossing folder is just like them! Isn't it grand?

This card was one that was created at my Stamp-a-stack a couple of weeks ago. The house was inked up in Cherry Cobbler ink. Then I wiped the roof off with a tissue. I took my black marker and colored the roof with it. Two tone stamping! How fun!

Merry Little Labels

This is another card that was used for my Stamp-a-stack. It's fairly simple and yet so striking! 
I did use the fine tip glue and Dazzling Diamonds on all the snowflakes on the tag. It's really pretty in person. I haven't been able to figure out how to get a good picture of anything that glitters.

Christmas Wishes

I had a Stamp-a-stack a couple of weeks ago. This is one of the 4 cards that the attendees got to create. Mine is just a tad different in that I added the Cherry Cobbler ribbon.


Did you notice the rhinestone on his nose is red? With the new Blends that Stampin' Up! released last month, you can color your rhinestones, pearls, faceted gems, and white perfect accents any color! How fun is that?
