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,

I was asked by a lovely friend to make 2 Wedding anniversary cards for 2 of her children who are both celebrating their anniversaries this month. I haven’t made too many anniversary cards so wondered what to do. Then … My order arrived with my Stampin’ Blends and the Always and Forever set. 🙂
These are the cards I made.
I wasn’t sure what I would do with the stamps though. I cut some squares of white card and would see where it would take me. I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Ink on Thick Whisper White card. That is essential when using the Stampin’ Blends. Then they were coloured them with the Blends. On scrap card I stamped them again. For the tree stump I stamped it in Night of Navy and cut the little hearts and adhered them straight on to the image. For the tree rings I stamped it on Night of Navy card and cut the heart out and then raised it up with Dimensionals and added a Rhinestone to the heart.
Instead of adhering the white card to a card mat I added a strip of either Silver Foil or Copper Foil at the top and bottom of the white card. The Designer Series Paper is from the Delightful Daisy DSP. The sentiment is from the Best Birds set and cut with the Bunch of Banners Framelits.
What do you think?
You can see the Always and Forever stamp set in my store now -> HERE.
You can find out more about the Stampin’ Blends AND don’t forget my Blends Club. Find out about that -> HERE.
Have a great weekend,
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.

I have something exciting to share with you today for WATCH IT WEDNESDAY #7. I was going to hold off for a couple of weeks before I shared it …but I can’t wait!!!
There is something new coming to Stampin’ Up! and Demonstrators can now buy them. I received them yesterday and unpacked them. So I had to take a video as I unveiled them. So today we meet the Stampin’ Blends.
In the video I said I used paper but it was actually Whisper White cardstock. Just remember to use Memento Black ink when using these markers as they are alcohol based markers. Also, to have some scrap paper underneath your work as the ink does bleed through to the back but that’s ok.
I was very impressed with them when I played with them – and kind of excited if you could gather that. At the moment there is no official date for them to be available for customers. So you will need to sit tight and wait. I will let you know when I know. As demonstrators we can order them until October 15th. Just a tip: If you are impatient to wait, then you can get them as part of your kit when you join the family until October 15. Something to think about… Ask me for more info.
I hope you enjoyed this WATCH IT WEDNESDAY episode. I have been playing around with them this afternoon so hopefully I will actually show you some finished projects soon.
Have a great day.
