I am also a blogger that still reads other blogs and I was really excited to read about Kimberly Van Diepen using a Blender Pen to water color on Crumb Cake cardstock. So I tried it out on this card and it was amazing even though I didn't use other ink colors like Kimberly did. I just used the Blender Pen to shade the ink on the mountains and then a chalk marker to color in the clouds and the building.
I've been holding onto this set because it doesn't have any words in it so I wasn't sure how to use it for cards. However, this time, I used the stamp set out of our new Soft Saying Card Kit. We tend to buy these kits and then forget to use the stamp sets that come with them. I wanted a card that could be used for male or female and also one that could be used for different occasions, so I chose to use the "I think you are wonderful" on the front and the Happy Birthday on the inside.
