My name is Nancy Gleason, and I’m addicted to coloring! Adult coloring is such a popular hobby but when you are coloring with the Stampin’ Blends markers and the new stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!, it’s like adult coloring on steroids! And I’m not ashamed it’s created an addiction!
The new round of Sale-A-Bration was just released on Feb. 16th and this new Blossoming Basket bundle with the Blossoming Basket stamp set and coordinating Basket Weave TIEF is enabling my addiction! Let me show you what I’ve been working on:
The coordinating Basket Weave Textured Impression Embossing Folder has a deep texture that is just the perfect compliment to this basket. I added some ink to the TIEF to create even more depth! A 2″ strip adds just enough texture to this card.
The more I use the Stampin’ Blends markers the more I love them! Look at the shading you can achieve: I used Crumb Cake for the basket, Daffodil Delight on the large rose, Calysp Coral for the smaller roses, Cherry Cobbler for the berries, and Old Olive for the leaves. A small swipe of Ivory under the basket helps to ground it.
Have you tried the Stampin’ Blends yet? I can’t get enough of them! You can see some other projects I made with Stampin’ Blends here and here. Come back again as I’ll have another card that I made with this stamp set but in a totally different color combination.
This is the stamp set Blossoming Basket that is available for free during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order. You can always order Stampin’ Blends to qualify for this stamp set which comes bundled with the Basket Weave TIEF. You can watch a video from Stampin’ UP! here on the Blossoming Basket bundle.

So much to color and not enough time to do it! Too bad I have to go to work every day! I’d rather stay home and stamp and color all day! That would be much more fun, don’t you think? After looking at what you can do with Stampin’ Blends markers, it’s not really a bad thing that I’m addicted to coloring!
