This is a bit of an epic post….go make a cup of tea and have a sit down, and we’ll get started!

8 Tryfold Cards – and Spectrum Noir Colourblend Pencils

Paws to Love is, out of the new TryFold stamp sets from AI, my favorite, of course! But you’ll see a whole bunch of them in this video and post. Along with some initial playing around and testing of Spectrum Noir Colourblend Pencils – comparing them with Prismacolor, and Gamsol vs Baby Oil! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The second of the three Paws to Love panels is the doghouse, peeking inside to the kitty and puppy….

And inside – the critters!

These are the supplies used for these cards….I found in this first bit of testing that, aside from wishing I had more colors (LOL), these Colourblend pencils compare favorably to Prismacolor pencils (my lifelong favorite). Gamsol vs Baby Oil: blending results seemed about the same, Baby oil seeps into the paper and leaves a little bit more of a grease spot, but the Gamsol does the same. Gamsol has a light odor, too. I think either works! But I’m totally smitten with the stump sharpener.

Sweet Wishes has a Valentine sentiment in it – but also has some other lovelies for year round. I love the extra-opening of the mailbox!

Pamper Yourshelf is so cute especially for a bookworm…

Everything wonderful – wishes for a happy birthday for kitty lovers!

And for the chefs and bakers out there…Homemade Happiness

Welcome Little One…a special die creates the bars on the crib.
