Blooming With Kindness meets the Blendabilities

I love the flower in the Blooming With Kindness stamp set.  Even with the Stampin' Write Markers, it turns out looking quite beautiful.  Using the Blendabilities, it actually seems to come to life.

I decided to make this card with no embellishments.  I used Whisper White as my base cardstock and then layered Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzazz.  The final layer is the Whisper White on which I stamped my flower and sentiments.   I left the sentiments black so that all the attention would be on the flower.

For the flower I used the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities and for the two leaves I used the Old Olive Blendabilities.  The deepest shade of the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities is very close in colour to the Crushed Curry, which is why I chose that as one of the cardstock layers.  The Blendabilities can be layered over each other as much as one likes.  The Whisper White doesn't pill at all, which is terrific since it does pill slightly if one works at it too much with the Stampin' Write Markers.  I made certain that I put some paper under my flower as well as a layer of waxed paper because, after working the colours over each other, the backside of the Whisper White is as deeply coloured as the front and I didn't want any colour on my tabletop.

I wasn't sure what I would think of the Blendabilities and so I only ordered a small number of colours.  Seeing how beautifully they colour and how easy they are to use, I plan to order all the colours.  Colouring with them can become addictive.


  1. I really love your card ! The colors are so beautiful

    1. Thanks so much, Stephy. I think that I'll be using that stamp set more now that I have the Blendabilities.
