Blending Technique Friendship Card

Learn how to incorporate blending into your handmade cards

I really enjoyed making this card as I feel that using this blending technique, for me, is a little out of my comfort zone but this card turned out pretty nice I feel.

I used a makeup brush from a local pound shop as well as some glycerine that you can purchase from any supermarket.

I used the Gather Together Stamp Set for my project as I just love the maple leaf stamp, as well as the gorgeous sentiments. This Stamp set is featured in our Holiday Catalogue – why not Contact me for a free copy.

The colours I chose were Pretty Peacock and Balmy Blue – a great combination that works well together.

This was really quick and easy to make, and I had some colouring help but using my Stampin’ Up! blending pens. These are an awesome tool for any craft kit, and for £11.95 for a pack of three – it’s a winner!

All products used are listed below for your perusal.

Instructions and Measurements:

Card base measures 4 1/8″ x 6″ and is in Pretty Peacock cardstock.
Stamping Layer measures 4″ x 5 7/8″ in whisper white.
Add some glycerine to a stamping block and some ink colour of your choice.
Using a die cut or punched circle shape, blend from the centre of the circle outwards to get a lovely blended effect.
Stamp some more images and a sentiment along the bottom of the card.
Add further glitter, embellishments or rhinestones for further effect.
