I just couldn't stop ink blending with the new blending brushes from Stampin' Up! They are just too much fun! If you missed it, be sure to check out yesterday's post where I shared lots of samples using ink blended backgrounds as well as a video on how to do ink blending. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Pretty Perennials Lots of Happy Card Idea
Like yesterday, I used the new Pretty Perennials stamp set and dies from the 2021 January-June Mini Catalog. For today's card, I wanted some warm sunny colors, so I turned to Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, and Poppy Parade. I created the ombre ink blended card front using blending brushes and then spritzed it with water to create the water spots. When it was dry, I added stenciled polka dots in the upper left and lower right corners using poppy parade ink and a blending brush. I added the die-cut black flowers over the stencil with a small rhinestone in the center of each. I stamped the greeting with Poppy Parade and Jet Black Stazon ink.
Stampin' Up!'s new Blending Brushes might be the new item from the January-June Mini Catalog that I am most excited about. If you remember, a few months ago, I shared how to do ink blending using make-up brushes. These new blending brushes are so much better! So, I had to make a new video to show you some of the fun things you can do with them. Plus I have lots of sample cards! So, on y go! Let's get stamping.

I am so excited to share this giant stack of swap cards I received last week using all NEW products from the 2021 January-June Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Catalog. Over the next couple of months, I'm going to be sharing my Top 10 Favorite Things About Being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
One of the things Stampin' Up! Demonstrators love to do is swap cards. Whenever a group of us gets together, you'll always see demonstrators exchanging handmade cards with one another. It is so much fun to see all of the fabulous cards that other demos create and to get new ideas. (We've been doing this since before Pinterest!) Since we couldn't get together in person this fall, we had virtual swaps.
