This project for today’s Wednesday’s WOW! is a card we made at class a couple of weeks ago using the Stampin’ Blends. I thought it might be a good technique to share with you.
I have used the Lift Me Up set and heat embossed it with white embossing powder and then coloured it with the Blends markers.
Do you want to see how to do this?
I haven’t done a video as yet but I have an earlier tutorial from some time ago using the Blendablilities. They work the same way. To find out head -> HERE to see the blog post.
Well, you can make any colour you like!
You might have seen you can colour any embellishment like the Rhinestones and Pearls or ribbon with the Blends BUT I had a play with something else the other day. Did you know you can colour the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper with the Stampin’ Blends. Now before you rush off and try it there are a couple of important notes.
** Use the Brush Tip end of your marker and only GENTLY brush over the Glimmer Paper. Too hard a rub may damage the nibs of your marker.
** Only colour the area exposed so you don’t waste the ink. You can see further below.
Here is the card I made with colouring the Glimmer Paper.
This is using the set Color Me Happy now available. I have coloured the bird and the flower with the Stampin’ Blends. Plus I coloured the Adhesive Pearl in too. When I assembled the card I embossed the White card mat with the Softly Falling Embossing Flower and added a strip of white that was cut with the Flourish Thinlits under the Merry Little Christmas DSP. (Don’t just keep this paper for Christmas!).
Getting back to the Scallop Circle. I cut a scallop Circle using the Layering Circles Thinlits from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. Then coloured just around the edge of it gently with the Dark Bermuda Bay Blends marker. You don’t want to press hard with the marker. Also, you only need to colour the outside edge that will be seen.
So what colour Glimmer Paper will you make?? Have fun with it.
Have a great weekend,
I have been sharing a lot of projects using the Stampin’ Blends. I am really enjoying them. So easy to use and I am feeling like an artist!!! Well, maybe I have a little way to go. A few weeks ago I played with the Blends with the Beautiful You set. So I thought I would show you these in Watch It Wednesday #11.
Here are the 3 cards but I will show you them individually further below.
I did colour these a few weeks ago and I have worked on my colouring a bit more but you might find it helpful.
Here is the video for your enjoyment.
Here are each of the cards so you can see them close-up. I have kept the layout similar but created them in different colours and changed the Embossing Folders.
Night of Navy with the Sparkle Embossing Folder.
Rich Razzleberry with the Petal Burst Folder.
Cherry Cobbler with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.
Did you notice the Rhinestones?? You can colour them with the Blends too.
So I hope you might have a play with them. They are really not hard at all to use and I love the effect with them.
Thanks for stopping by,
You have seen them around your blog travels and I have been talking about the Stampin’ Blends for a while. I know it is a big investment so why not try them out. If you are a Wollongong local come to my Blends Play Day.
WHEN: Friday 17th November 10am and Saturday 18th 2pm.
COST: $15 All materials to create 2 fun cards with different ways to use the Blends.
BYO: Scissors and Adhesives.
Please RSVP Thursday 16th.
I hope you can come along. Let me know soon though.
A bonus of being a demonstrator is that we get to order the products way before customers can. It gives us much more time to play with them. When I first got my Stampin’ Blends a couple of weeks ago I also ordered this new set Color Me Happy. It’s such a sweet set. I shared these cards on Instagram and Facebook but hadn’t got to share them with you as yet. So it seems a good time now to show you what I have been doing.
What do you think of this Color Me Happy Set. Very cute?? This set is $47 W or $33 C.
There is also the Color Me Happy Card Kit. This kit includes card stock and all embellishments to make 16 cards. Cost is $41 which is not bad for $2.60 per card. You would need to buy the stamp set separately to use with this set.
Whether you are wanting to order the Blends, the stamps or any other products you can shop now.
