Swing card with “Pun Fun” Cupcake colored with Honey and Cotton Candy markers.
You can see the highlighted “sprinkles” on the cupcake, done with the alcohol blending pen. This is different from our regular blending pen used with dye based inks.
This “experiment” was inspired by the talented Lisa Stenz. I heat embossed the flowers on Cotton Candy paper and then colored with Cotton Candy markers. You can see that the lower left is colored and the other two are not. The card below shows them all colored.
Here’s the markers, Cotton Candy, Cotton Candy light, and blending pen.

One of my favorite things to make right now are banners. I love the look of them hanging in different places, expressing different sentiments, and just changing the feeling of the room where they are displayed.
Well, I made one for my niece and I LOVE how it turned out too!
I used the My Creations Banner as the background and adhered burlap to each piece. Then I cut the letters the size I wanted on the Cricut and used the “negative” as a stencil. I then used our Create a Shade pearl paint to stencil in the letters. This took a couple of coats to get it to look as solid as I wanted. After they dried, I added our Color-Ready Seam Binding Ribbon that I had pleated to the top edge. Finally, I tied it all together with Natural Hemp.
Did you know that you can add reinker to the Create a Shade pearl paint to make it any color you want? You can also use the reinker to dye the Color-Ready Seam Binding Ribbon. The color coordination possibilities are endless.
The banner looked great hanging over the drink table at the shower. (But I forgot to take a photo of it!)
