Quick & Easy Birthday Card Details

Bring those scraps of designer paper to life by filling in the white areas using your Stampin’ Blends markers! You’ll have so much fun with this when you need a birthday card design idea.


Did you know that the Memento ink is the only ink pad you should use with alcohol-based Stampin’ Blends Markers? Memento ink is water-based which will eliminate smearing while using an alcohol-based marker.

Not sure which ink pad to use when? I’ve got a great video explaining all the details HERE.


If you struggle with Baker’s Twine because it’s thin and difficult to grasp, wait until you see my tip shared in this video!
