Hi there! Today’s video is a pretty basic one. In addition to sharing a simple way to achieve soft color, I show an easy way to make heart-shaped cards. This post is also part of a fun blog tour.

Oh my goodness – the images from the Lil Inker Perfect Pair stamp set are so stinkin’ cute! Colin and I had fun coloring them with Tombow Markers and a Dove Blender Pen. Using these together is such a simple way to get blended coloring without needing a ton of markers… or fancy markers!
We kept the cards simple and can’t wait to give them to friends.
We used the My Favorite Things Heart Stax dies to create heart shaped cards.
Fun, huh? I love sweet happy cards…
#SHAREYOURHEART BLOG TOUR
Today I am part of a special and unique event. My friend – Courtney Walsh – has a new book coming out! (She has loads of talent.) The book is called Paper Hearts (you can get it HERE on Amazon) and it has a sweet story. Here is a video sharing the idea behind the book. It goes so very much in line with what cardmakers enjoy – reminding someone of how much they are loved.
To celebrate the book, there will be a several day “blog tour” – today is day 1. (Be sure to go to Courtney’s blog HERE for all the details.) We are all creating our own version of “paper hearts”… thus why my heart-shaped cards above.
