card making: glittery dahlia hello card

IMG_9511copyB

I recently discovered Wink of Stella glitter brush markers and whoa!  It’s a pretty cool tool!  It’s a great way to add a shimmery effect to a project with glitter that won’t go flying all over the place (or stick to your face in my case!) because it’s controlled and applied with a nylon brush that can do thick or thin lines.

The coverage you get is awesome, and the glitteryness (I just made up that word) is pretty fantastic.  Definitely a tool to add to your stash!

Happy crafting!

product review: stampin’ up blendabilities markers

IMG_8832copy

I’m so lucky to have a friend who is also a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up.  Demonstrators get to try out new products before the new catalog goes live and the general public can order things online.  So as you can imagine, I was super giddy to be able to try out these new Blendabilities markers!  {insert crafty nerd giggle here}  And I had the perfect stamp to pair them with too: a large dahlia.

These markers that were created for shading and blending and I did a small comparison to Copic markers.  They have a dual tip so they’re great for coloring in both small and large areas.

ETA 11/2017: I’ve been informed that these were discontinued due to an issue with the manufacturer (boo!).  Stampin’ Up! has come out with some new ones though – check them out here!
