Ribbon of your choice

Stampin’ Blends Marker color of your choice
Ink Pad color of your choice
Silicone Craft Sheet or something that will protect your surface
1. You might want to practice on a small piece of ribbon before you color it for your project. This will help you see the color you get. You can adjust the color in case it does not turn out the color you want. Also, check to see if you need to color just one side or both sides.
2. Markers in general. The color will get darker the more you color it. Check your sample to see if you need/want to color both sides of the ribbon.
3. Color with the side of your brush tip NOT the tip. You will damage the tip if you color ribbon with it. It will also take longer to color the ribbon with the thin surface of the Tip.
4. Stampin’ Write Markers. These markers color rather smoothly. The ink spreads slightly and blends easily.
5. Stampin’ Blends Markers. These markers color really smoothly. They also saturate the ribbon faster with ink.
Watch this Video if your ink pad or Stampin’ Write Markers need to be reinked. Stampin’ Blends Markers cannot be reinked.

This card uses the NEW Humming Along stamp set and is a #SimpleStamping Card. It uses stamps, ink, and coloring. You can use your favorite coloring products – I used Stampin’ Blends Markers. Just make sure you choose Memento Tuxedo Black ink instead of StayzOn Jet Black. StayzOn ink smears when used with Blends.

INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Thick Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. SCORE and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Lay out your stamps where you want them on the card front. You can use the large Clear Block F to stamp all three stamps at once if you want. Watch This Video to learn the Stamping with Large Stamps technique. OR stamp each image separately.
~Stamp with Memento ink. 3. Color: Make sure and lay some grid or scratch paper under your cardstock when using Stampin’ Blends Markers. Also, make sure the card is open and laying flat so you don’t make marks on the inside of your card.
~Dark Daffodil-Yellow Pollen flower part
~Old Olive-leaves and stems. Make sure and color the stem inside the flower before coloring the flower. Flower Petals. Color one petal at a time for best blending results.
~Dark Rich Razzleberry: Use the Fine Tip to go over the lines coming from the center of the flower and to draw small circular lines along the flower petal outside edges.
~Light Rich Razzleberry: Color the whole petal, blending the dark circular lines until you can’t see a line and the color just goes for darker to lighter.
Repeat with each petal. Humming Bird. I think they are really brownish. But I was not in the mood for browns. Choose the colors you want. I will tell you what I used.
~Beak: Dark Pumpkin Pie-Thin Tip
