Shin Han Marker Blog Hop

Welcome to our Shin Han Marker Blog Hop!  We will be featuring one of our favorite new CLose To My Heart products - Shin Han Markers!  If you have come here from Brenda's blog at, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog:

I used just 2 markers to create this cute little cupcake card.  The cupcake wrapper is colored with Leaf Green (Z2454) and the frosting is Barely Beige (Z2445).  The beauty of these markers is that each time a layer of ink is added, the color gets darker, allowing different shades from just one marker as demonstrated in the wrapper.

The cupcake is cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and stamped a coordinating stamp set that comes with the cartridge.  The stamping was done with versamark ink and then embossed with clear embossing.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is stamped with White Daisy ink and pink polka dot Washi Tape is added for a final touch.  These are all Close To My Heart products except for the pink button cherry which came from my sewing box.

These versatile markers are available at
