Welcome to the Maui Achievers January Blog Hop!

Maui Achievers January 2021 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Maui Achievers January Blog Hop. We’re a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who have achieved the Stampin’ Up! bonus of the Maui incentive trip. We celebrate this achievement by organizing a monthly hop which helps us continue to inspire you creatively.
You may be starting here or have come from someone else’s blog – either way there’s a list at the end of this post to help you move around all the different blogs and get many amazing ideas. We all have our country listed – so if you’re looking for a demonstrator, these are top demonstrators in their country and would love to help you with your Stampin’ Up! shopping or if you’d like to join our Stampin’ Up! teams. Visit all of the blogs and leave a comment. We love to hear from you.

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.

Blending Brushes Flowering Cactus

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.

Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to visit all of the sites on the Maui Achievers January Blog Hop.
