Stamptastic Friends October Blog Hop Favorite Coloring Method

Welcome to the Stamptastic Friends October Blog Hop and this month we are showcasing our favorite coloring methods. Stampin' Up! has so many wonderful coloring mediums that it is difficult to choose a favorite. Our Design Team will be sharing their projects and ideas to help convince you that their method is the best. I wonder which method they will choose.
One of my favorite ways to color would have to be using Stampin' Blends Markers. I just love how they blend and the beautiful range of colors that Stampin' Up! offers gives me so many options. I find coloring with Stampin' Blends Markers so relaxing and I couldn't wait to use them to color the giraffe image in the new Festive & Fun stamp set. I paired this cute image with the new Merry Bold & Bright Designer Series Paper to create a bright and cheerful Christmas card. Don't you just love the Fa La La La La in the background design?

I love creating Christmas cards and the Festive & Fun stamp set is one of my favorites from the September-December 2023 Mini Catalog. It's like a Christmas version of the Zany Zoo Bundle in the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. I chose to use one of the designs from the Merry Bold & Bright Designer Series Paper to add a wonderful pop of color to the card. The giraffe image from the Festive & Fun stamp set is so much fun to color with Stampin' Blends Markers. For a touch of shimmer, I used Clear Wink of Stella on the ornaments and Santa hat. I used the Countryside Corners Dies to create the background for the giraffe and I fussy cut the image and attached it to the background with Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up. The sentiment has been stamped on a 1/2" strip of Basic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I used the star punch from the Inked & Tiled Punch Pack to create the banner for the strip. For a touch of bling, I added several Daffodil Delight Dots to complete this bright and cheerful Christmas card. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope my card design will help inspire you to try Stampin' Blends Markers to color your images for your projects. They are so much fun to use and I love the vibrant colors and how easy they are to blend.
