I’ve got a new JO-Tips video for you today for how to create new Stampin Blends colours and a classy fall project made with the Country Home stamp set.
How about a few quick questions before we get started?
- Have you ever wanted just a slightly different colour than the Stampin’ Blend you’ve just coloured with?
- Do you like to shade with even more depth than our light and dark marker options offer?
- Are you an “experimental crafter” 😋?
If you answered Yes to just one of those, this video is tailor made for you!
How to Create New Stampin Blends Colours
How about a closer view of this simple and colourful card? Then I’ll share all the steps and the colours I blended together to get my shading.
Cuttin’ It Up!
- Thick Whisper White – 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
- Pretty Peacock – 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Early Espresso – 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
Let’s Make It!
1.Stamp pot and foliage with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto right hand side of Thick Whisper White.
2. Colour with Stampin’ Blends.
3. Stamp greeting in Pretty Peacock ink.
4. Adhere panel to piece of Pretty Peacock then to folded Early Espresso card.
What Colours Did I Use?
- Dark Crumb Cake in top right and bottom left corner and along top rim. Light Crumb Cake in middle bottom section. Light Pretty Peacock over all and Dark Peacock in all four corners.
- For Fern-like stems, Dark So Saffron and Dark Poppy Parade on berries.
- Dark Crumb Cake on left insides of leaves, then Light Old Olive with Dark Old Olive in leaf points.
- On dotted parts of bulrushes, Dark Basic Black with Dark Soft Suede on top.
- Dark So Saffron on artichoke-looking item, then layered with Light Pumpkin Pie. Dark Pumpkin Pie on edges and a dot of Dark Poppy Parade on point of item.
- Light Crumb Cake and Light Grey Granite on bottom shadow with Color Lifter to blend.
Now It’s Your Turn!
I love the options you have with Stampin’ Blends and I know you will too. More seasonal fall cards like this one are just blended steps away.
If you like to colour, I’m so sure you’ll love these too, I will guarantee to buy them back if you find they’re just not for you. Order them here or by clicking on any of the images below.How to Create New Stampin Blends Colours
I was having so much fun with my Stampin Blends colour blending I couldn’t stop playing. Here’s a stepped-up version you might like.
Exactly the same colours but a few details to add some additional WOW!
- fussy cut pot and foliage (this will take a few minutes to do but the result is stunning) and adhered with dimensionals
- gingham DSP on the bottom of the Early Espresso card highlighted with the Pretty Peacock scalloped ribbon adhered with a glue dot
- Thank punch out with the 1″ circle punch and matted on a 1 1/8″ scalloped circle
I’d love to hear which of these cards is your favourite – leave me a comment to let me know if the more simpler version or the stepped-up version appeals to you!
Thanks So Much
