Beautiful cards. It shows, that using any of the Spcectrum Noir products, how you can achieve a beautiful look on projects. I have many of the alcohol markers but not the pencils or Aqua markers. On my wish list. Thanks for sponsoring the Stampendous blog hop.

Love my Spectrum Noir and Stampendous products and really love using them together! I have had to order a second set of the Spectrum Aquas due to this hop! LOL ENABLERS! If I was to be the lucky winner of your giveaway I would be gifting the two sets that I have to someone else so that they could also see how awesome they are! Thank you for having such generous prize packages. I consider myself a winner whether I win a prize or not because of all the inspiration I have gotten from both design teams!

    Recently I bought by a dutch webshop the stampendous hummingbirds with die. I like it so much, that I wanted to look for more stamps. And than I saw the mouse with his footsteps! So cute!
    I’m also informing myself about all kinds of markers. So read also about Spectrum Noir and so video’s of it.
    Much possibilities. Maybe I will choose these to buy.

  • Anka April 7th, 2015 6:43 am
