Stampin Blends Markers Tutorial: Simple Shadows with Color Me Happy

Ready to get started with the NEW Stampin’ Blends? I know!!  Me, too!  I’m in love with the pretty saturated colors that these markers produce – such bright tones and easy blending.

This lesson is my Stampin Blends 101 Tutorial – how to add word shadows. Since the Color Me Happy stamp set (new with the Stampin Blends release on Nov 1) includes the word shadow lines for us, this one is pretty simple! I do have a couple of tips though – so watch the video tutorial to see the tips in action, or just use the helpful list below.

Stampin Blends 101 Tutorial: How to Add Word Shadows

  1. Stamp image with Memento Ink – Tuxedo Black and allow to set for a couple of minutes (2-3 min) for best results.
  2. Begin by coloring the full ‘thanks’ image with the Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin Blends Marker. I like to use the brush tip end of the marker for this step.
  3. Go back with the Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin Blends Marker and color the word shadows to add the dimension. I like the use the bullet tip end of the marker here.

That’s it! You’re done – no actual blending needed for this project, but having two shades of the same Pumpkin Pie color makes it so easy to add shadows.
