Welcome to the Maui Achievers January Blog Hop!
Blending Brush Backgrounds
Stampin’ Up!’s January-June 2021 Mini Catalog features a host of brand-new products. It includes everything from exclusive stamp sets, coordinating dies and punches, Designer Series Paper, ribbon, embellishments, and tools.
The Blending Brushes (on page 70) offer a new opportunity to add dimension to your paper crafting projects. These brushes lend themselves to a host of techniques. I’ve started using these velvety soft brushes to create backgrounds.
The card above uses elements from the Flowering Cactus Product Medley. I’ve been “stuck” on the medley and thought the blending brushes create a beautiful background (just like the desert sunsets). The cactus sits against a soft scene created with Crumb Cake, Misty Moonlight, and Bumblebee ink sponged on with the brushes.
The card above features two stamps each available free with a $50 purchase (before tax and shipping) during Stampin’ Up’s SaleABration promotion. (Card inspired by Theresa Huffman). Working from the bottom up, the blended colors are Misty Moonlight, Calypso Coral, and Bumblebee. I just love the soft effect delivered with the use of the Blending Brushes.
