{PREVIEW} Color Me Blooms Colorables feat. Cards by Tanja and Emily Kabel


Happy Monday, STAMPlorations friends! If you've been to the store lately, you may have noticed a bunch of new products have been added. In fact, we have a new section: Colorables, Ephemera, and Card Fronts. I'll be adding more products over the next several weeks, including kits and bundles. But today, I'd like to put the spotlight on our Colorables line, specifically these two products: Color Me Blooms Spring Florals A2 Colorable Card Fronts and Color Me Blooms Spring Florals Laser Cuts.

  


STAMPgirl Tanja and her daughter, Emily, played with these Colorables and they made some gorgeous cards that scream spring! Have a look and then leave a comment. One lucky commenter will win a pack of each of these Colorables. Check back on April 10 when we publish the March winners post to see if your name is drawn.

Hi there, it's Tanja and did you know that STAMPlorations has a new product line called Colorables? I would like to show you some projects using the Color Me Blooms Spring Florals and the Color me Blooms A2 Card Fronts that I created together with my daughter Emily (11).


  • color one of the Color Me Blooms Spring Florals with Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers and add extra shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils 
  • adhere the florals to a white panel and add black and white splatters
  • the sentiment is from the Skinny Sentiments dies set cut from vellum and black cardstock
