  2. Cut the 2nd piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 4″ x 5 1/4″. Place in the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and zip through the Big Shot.  Adhere to the Card Base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Place a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock below the largest Stitched Shape Circle Framelits and run through the Big Shot to create your canvas for the cute bear scene.
  4. Ink up the Bear, Bees, Hive, Grass, and Sentiment in Tuxedo Black Momento Ink and stamp onto Crumb Cake Cardstock.

  7. Run the greenery die through the Big Shot with Crumb Cake Cardstock, then color the top half with the Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend Marker and the bottom half with the Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blend Marker, creating an ombre effect.  Adhere to the back of the focal point with Snail Adhesive, then to the Card Base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I love the cute images from the “A Little Wild Bundle”.  I have used it in several creations and swoon over everything that I see it with.  I thought it was perfect for this month’s Blog Theme.  Click on the image below to see details on how I created the card and framed art using this A Little Wild Bundle.

Coloring with Stampin’ Blends Premier Alcohol Markers on Crumb Cake Cardstock is dreamy.  They saturate the cardstock nicely, dry quickly and you can easily create depth and dimension.  If you are new to coloring with Stampin’ Blends, I highly recommend trying them on Crumb Cake Cardstock first.  When you master or get the hang of using them on Crumb Cake, then I recommend moving to Whisper White Cardstock.

You can watch the video below to see the Stampin’ Blends in action and to learn some tips and tricks to using them.
