Stampin Up Blendabilities: Blended Bloom with Calypso Coral

Once I got started coloring with my new markers I had to try every color I had!  This card is made I made with the Blended Bloom image I colored using the Blendabilities markers in the Calypso Coral.  I have said it before, but I love how these markers come in sets of 3, taking the guess work out of finding the right colors to make a proper gradient blend.  One of hte other really cool benefits of these alcohol markers is that you can color on jsut about anything and the color does not come off!  For this project, I used regular clear rhinestones and colored them with the lightest pumpkin pie blendability marker giving them that nice gold tint.

The top background is stamped in Gold metallic ink using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set – this is one of my go to stamp sets because it is so flexible and makes great backgrounds.

Wedding By The Tide Stampin Up Style

A friend of mine recently asked for a custom card for a beach side wedding she was attending.  I knew that it just had to be the “By The Tide” set by Stampin Up… I just didn’t know WHAT, or HOW.

Here is what I came up with after quite a bit of tinkering:
