One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop - Just Blend It


Welcome to the One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop! I'm go glad to have you here at Create With Christy! This month, our theme is "Just Blend It". There are so many blending techniques out there, and I'll actually be showing you two! On both my card and my Ghirardelli Squares Tote Bag, I used the Emboss Resist Ink Blending Technique and colored with my Stampin' Blends. 

You can learn how to do both blending techniques, and how to make both of my projects, in my video...

These projects aren't just showcasing some blending techniques. They're also a sneak peek of a new stamp set in the upcoming Stampin' Up! 2022-2023 Annual Catalog called Uniquely Artistic. I actually got this stamp set free when I attended a demonstrator virtual event called OnTour. I LOVE being a demo!


I also used another stamp set on the card. The greetings on the outside and inside of the card come from the Happy & Heartfelt Stamp Set in the January - June 2022 Mini Catalog. I do know that this stamp set didn't make it into the annual catalog, so it might be retiring soon (unless it comes back in another mini). If you like it, I'd suggest getting it soon! The font is wonderful!


The emboss resist ink blending technique was done on the background layer of the card. I colored the flower & leaves in with Stampin' Blends. I love the blending that the Stampin' Blends can do!


The Uniquely Artistic Stamp Set is a 2-Step set, and I show how to use them on the inside of my card. As I said above, the greeting comes from the Happy & Heartfelt Stamp Set.


As you can see, I did the same techniques on my Ghirardelli Treat Bag. The little treat bag holds 3 Ghirardelli Squares. What a great way to congratulate someone...by giving them a handmade card & chocolates in a cute treat bag!
