MASKED BACKGROUND WITH THE NEW STAMPIN’ UP! BLENDING BRUSHES

Have you seen the new Stampin’ Up! Blending Brushes?? I have had mine for a couple of weeks but have just pulled them out this week. I have been having so much fun with them. How soft and delicate are the bristles!! They are lovely.

On yesterday’s Facebook Live I used the brushes on the card and shared some tips in using them.

The edited video is now on Youtube. I will add it below too. If you are receiving this blog post via email it might not show up so head to my blog or you can go to Youtube directly.

I will be sharing some more cards with the Blending Brushes very soon so watch out for them.

A couple of tips with using them though. You will want to treat them differently than the sponges or the Daubers.

  • When picking up the ink from the inkpad you will want to “rub gently” not dab like you might with the sponges.
  • Dab off a little on scrap paper first. I do this with the sponges anyway.
  • When applying ink to your card move in a circular motion with light pressure.
  • Hold the brush down towards the brush head.
  • If you are sponging the whole card start off the edge of the card and work lightly in.

I hope these tips help. I will put together a video soon sharing some cool ways of using the brushes.

Here is the card from the video. I have used the Dragonfly Garden on the card.

On the Dragonfly I stamped the “solid” wing stamp on the wing outline in Blushing Bride and then coloured just the tip of the wings with the Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Write Marker or you can use the Stampin’ Blends.

The Blending Brushes are available in my store now -> HERE. for $21 AUD

JOY TO THE WORLD – CREATING LIVE!

On my Facebook Live this week I created with the Joy To The World Kit. Such a gorgeous one. Of course you can make the cards as they are but … isn’t it great to mix them up a bit – and use those stamps more too.

This was the card I made on the Live. I posted the video below too so you can check it out. And also, see some tips in using this gorgeous kit.

I don’t usually stamp the inside of the card but I did for this one.

I will share some more of these cards over the next few days.

The video is below or You can catch the replay of my Facebook Live. I am trying to go Live on my Facebook page every Wednesday afternoon so I hope you can come and join the chat and the fun.

There is only a few days left to get the Joy To The World kit. You will make 8 gorgeous cards but have some of the lovely kit to make more. They are very quick to put together. Of course, try something different with them too.
