Blending Brushes have been available in the crafting world for awhile. And now Stampin’ Up! will have them in their offering of new products starting January 5th (this Tuesday)!! Yippee! I demonstrated them briefly on white cardstock that I had embossed with the Painted Texture embossing folder in this Box Opening video (around the 56 minute mark) that aired on November 9th, but I never shared what I came up with for the finished card until today. (Click here to view the video if you are not seeing it below.)
I added in the Art Gallery Stamp Set and coordinating Floral Gallery Dies along with some heat embossed White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon to make this congrats card.
Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.
- White cardstock
- 11” x 4-1/4” scored parallel to short side at 5-1/2”
- 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″
- Scraps for stamping and die-cutting flowers and leaves
- Basic Black Cardstock
- Scrap for die-cutting sentiment piece
- Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon
- Emboss the 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ white with the embossing folder. Then use the Blending Brushes to color the surface. (Watch the Box Opening video for tips and techniques if needed.)
- Stamp and die-cut the flowers and leaves.
- Die-cut the black cardstock for the sentiment piece. Stamp the sentiment with VersaMark ink. Sprinkle on the white powder. Tap off the excess. Then heat emboss.
- Adhere the sentiment to the largest flower. Hold this flower where you’d like it be, then adhere the other flower and leaf pieces while you tuck them under and around the large flower.
- Wrap around and tie on the ribbon. Tie it in a knot and trim the ends.
- Add the large flower/sentiment piece with Dimensionals.
- Then add this layer to the front of the white card base using Dimensionals.
Thanks for checking out what I had to share today!
Some of you have asked how I made the faker shaker card with the Floating & Fluttering Bundle that I shared in this unboxing video. Be sure to visit on Wednesday, January 13 for those details. In fact that will be the card I put together during my YouTube live that day.

MINI STAMPIN’ CUT & EMBOSS MACHINE UPDATE
If you recall the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines on pages 170-172 in the 2020-21 Annual Catalog weren’t quite ready with the launch of this publication in June. The larger one debuted on September 1st, but there were further COVID-19-related delays with the mini machine. Well…good news! The mini machine is available to demonstrators right now. And on January 5th it will be available to everyone! So keep that in mind when planning your wish lists and purchases.
