This weekend was Confirmation for Ava, the daughter of my goddaughter. She is pretty amazing and took the name Grace for her Confirmation, Amazing (Ava) Grace. For her amazing card,  I found that Inspired Events stamp set in the Annual Catalog had a lot of sentiments including “Confirmation” .

You can see, I’ve been having a good time coloring, this time with Stampin’ Markers.

Design Notes for Inspired Events Card:

A week or so ago, I made a gift bag for her using the Springtime Foils Designer Paper. For that, I used Stampin’ Blends for the coloring. If you’d like to see the gift bag and tag, just click here.

For this card, I decided to try using the Stampin’ Write Markers. I think it turned out just fine. You can’t get the same blending that you do with the Stamping Blends but I am still pleased with the results. For the foil paper layer, I just colored the leaves with Old Olive. On a different sheet of the Foils paper, I cut out a flower after I had colored it. Thanks to my Paper Snips, it was an easy job.
