Wanna see a sneak peek easy backgrounds with blending brushes card? This one features items from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue!

We’re excited! I think it’s one of my favourite catalogues in a long time!

Something for everyone for the fall, Hallowe’en, Christmas and winter season. No matter where you live!

I’ve played with only a few things so far but two really caught my eye. The Fruitful Blessings Stamps and the Abundant Beauty Decorative Masks!

See them both along with some great new gingham ribbon in vanilla and black!

Such a wonderful way to celebrate anything this fall

I don’t think I set out to combine 4 different techniques on one card but I am happy with this result!

Technique 1: Blending Colour for a Beautiful Background

The background was a breeze to make. Those leaves come from using a mask, a plastic stencil you use with a blending brush.

All I did was place the mask on top of my Copper Clay paper and swirl on colour with my blending brush. Remove the mask, and voila…a great fall background.

Easy peasey!

If you’d like to see exactly how easy this technique is, take a peek here at my video for how to use masks to stencil.

Nothing else was needed to provide the backdrop to the greeting and acorns.

Now if you’d like to make this card just like mine, you can get the supplies BEFORE September 6th by joining Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator. You can even add it to your Starter Kit! Only $135 and you get $165 in product to start you on your stamping journey.

Now what about the rest of the card?

Take the newly decorated background and wrap it with a piece of our upcoming gingham and vanilla ribbon. Then adhere it to a piece of the matte rose gold foil specialty paper and affix to a Basic Black card base.

Technique 2: Heat Embossing

Emboss your greeting in black embossing powder onto Crushed Curry to match the colour of the leaves.

“Best wishes” is a perfect greeting for so many celebrations. This one from the Layering Leaves stamp set is beautiful for a fall birthday, wedding, shower or congratulations. This one is from the Layering Leaves stamp set.

Technique 3 & 4: Watercolouring & Die Cutting

Many of you know I love to colour and watercolour. So that’s one of the reasons this new Fruitful Blessings stamps and dies were a must have in my pre-order list. You’ll find several lovely fall images to colour. Some fall chrysanthemums, a duo of pairs and these acorns with attached leaves. (Which incidentally I’ve cut off and tucked behind the greeting on today’s design.)

Cutting it out is quick to do with a perfectly coordinated set of metal dies.

I really love how this card came together with the watercolour, the ribbon and the blended background.
