Stampin’ Up! NEW Blender Brushes Video Tutorial

One of the new products in the 2021 Jan-June Mini Catalog are Blending Brushes.

I was able to pre-order them and try them out and I have been so impressed.
The smooth color and subtle blending between colors is beautiful!

Last Wednesday night for my Facebook Live video, I used the Blender Brushes to create a sweet card also using the Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set. I used the Blender Brushes to blend between Misty Moonlight and Seaside Spray ink.

I’ll be live again tonight with a new card using the brand new Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle. If you catch it live, you’ll have a chance to win the card!! Join me at 7:30 pm EST over on Facebook.

If you ever miss a video, you can check them out on my YouTube Channel.

Now to see how I made today’s card, as well as learn some tips and tricks for using the Blender Brushes, check out the video below:

I then cut three squares – 1-3/4 x 1-3/4 each – one from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper, another from Pear Pizzazz cardstock, and a third from Whisper White cardstock.

On the Pear Pizzazz square, I stamped one of the images from the Forever Fern Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz ink. On the Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink and then matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Finally, I added a Pretty Peacock bow and a few Gilded Gems.

Stampin’ Up! Buffalo Check Christmas Card

This month’s “Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop” theme is Christmas or Happy Holidays. I hope you enjoy hopping to the different blogs to see what everyone made.

My card starts off with Basic Black cardstock. I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the Buffalo Check image on it in Memento Black ink and then matted it on another panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I took a panel of Real Red cardstock and used the Pine Wood Dies to cut out a tree from it. I adhered this over the Buffalo Check using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock, cutting it out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.

Underneath the sentiment, I wound around a piece of Real Red Braided Ribbon.

Who else is in shock that we’re in November?!

Before we know it, Thanksgiving and then Christmas will be here.
But I just love this time of the year!!

My card today starts off with Misty Moonlight cardstock.

I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Bumblebee cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Swirly Frames Thank You Card

Hi friends!

I don’t know about you, but this weekend flew by way too fast.
I hope you have a great week ahead (and are able to get some stamping in).

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock, which I embossed using the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder.

I then used the Stamparatus to stamp the rectangle from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set along a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Misty Moonlight, Pool Party, and Mint Macaron ink.

I stamped the right rectangle first in Mint Macaron ink, moved the hinge one space to the left, stamped it in Pool Party, moved the hinge one space to the left, and stamped it in Misty Moonlight ink. I continued this until all the rectangles were stamped.

I stamped the bird image from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set in Pool Party ink, stamping off first for a lighter shade.

I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set in the corner in Misty Moonlight ink. I then adhered a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock under the Whisper White panel.

Stampin’ Up! Week of Designer Series Paper – Day 1

Let’s talk Designer Series Paper for a second.

October 1st Stampin’ Up! is doing a Designer Series Paper sale – 15% off select DSP from the Annual and Mini Catalog!!

And you can’t have Designer Series Paper without solid cardstock, so if your order is $50+ and you buy at least one pack of Designer Series Paper, in the month of October, I’m giving away a free pack of cardstock (on top of your free $9 item)!

In light of this sale, I will be using Designer Series Paper on ALL my cards this week and sharing the different ways I like to use it.

If you’re unsure what colors to use – look at the colors Stampin’ Up! puts together in their Designer Series Paper.  They know what they’re doing and many times will use combinations of colors that I won’t have thought of.

For the foliage in today’s card, I took the colors right from a pattern from the Plaid Tidings DSP.

My card starts off with Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the images from the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry (leaf), Cajun Craze (acorn), and Pumpkin Pie (leaf) on Whisper White cardstock and cut them out using the Autumn Pack Punches.  I stamped off first for the lighter solid image.

Lastly I added a few Artistry Blooms Sequins around.

Thanks for checking out my project today!!!
Be sure to take a look at the upcoming Designer Series Paper sale and get your wish list ready!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
