I’ve been watching a few YouTube tutorials showing how you can use your Stampin Blends with alcohol blending solution to make some awesome backgrounds. I thought I’d have a bit of a play and try this technique out.
First up is a card for:
- The Sisterhood of Crafters – Embossing – Heat or Dry ( I went with heat)
- The Paper Craft Crew #436 – Tic Tac Toe (I chose Trees/Vellum/Embossing)
For this card I used the Stampin Up set ‘In the Pines’ and I die cut the tree after heat embossing in black over the Blends background.
Next is a card for Global Design Project #301.
For this card I used some silver glitter AI cardstock from Tim Holtz as the base for my Blends scribbled background. I then heat embossed in black the Picket Fences ‘Aeonoim African Succulent’ and popped up a sentiment from Uniquely Creative.
Next is a card for the Color Throwdown #652.
For this card I made a grass/sky background and then black heat embossed the ‘4 Leaf Clover’ stamp from Colorado Craft Company. It needed a little bit extra so I coloured in the leaves and mouse.
Lastly is a card for:
- ABC Christmas Challenge – N is for North Pole or O is for Off to One Side
- 52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Vellum on a Window Card
For this card I made a green vellum background with my SU Blends and gold heat embossed the tree from Catherine Pooler Designs ‘Festive Trimmings’ off to one side within my window.
Well that’s it for today. I hope you give this technique a try. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
