An easy technique

You may have heard that Stampin’ Up! have decided to discontinue the Blendabilities. I’m really sad about this as you may have noticed that I really like them!! They have had numerous issues with them and have decided not to continue to offer a product which doesn’t meet their high standards. Whilst I’m sad that they are no longer available, I am proud to be a part of a company that has such high standards and is willing to make such a decision.

So I had a workshop recently and decided to focus on our other pens, the Stampin’ Write markers. One of my favourite techniques is the marker to stamp technique. It is a great and easy way to add more than one colour to a stamp. And it’s always an Ooohh moment when it works!!

I was inspired by a card on Pinterest, see here. I have changed it around a bit, including turning it on its side. I have used the Big News stamp set which is great for large sentiments.

AAaahhh sweet baby

There’s nothing like cuddles with a new little baby and watching their cute little face as they sleep.

One of my friends had a little boy just the other day and I popped around for a visit today. I love baby cuddles!! However, nappy change time is not for me!!

Of course, I can’t go around empty handed, so I cased this card from Pinterest. But it’s a little boy so you can’t add a doily, so I used the bannner from the Balloon framelits from the Occasions catalogue.

The Lullaby DSP is so cute. Did you know that one side of the dsp is in pink tones and the other blue. That way there’s no wastage as you can use it all!!

baby love

And of course, no card is complete without a bit of bling!! It’s sort of blue isn’t it!! hehe!!

Happy stamping!!

Is there no limit to the Awesomeness of Blendies!!!

I don’t think there is!!! There are so many different things you can do with them. Have I mentioned that I love them!! Well, maybe once or twice!! hehe

I love the Big News stamp set in the main catalogue. Sometimes, you just need a large sentiment and this set is perfect for that. It also covers a number of different occasions, like birthday, new baby, wedding so it’s quite versatile.

As another project to share at Team Day recently, I showed the girls how you can use blendabilities to colour white embossing powder on dark cardstock. It works best with a dark coloured background cardstock as you colour over the embossing.

blendie awesome

How great does this look? If I do say so myself!!

If you would like to earn blendabilties for free, you just need to spend $90 or more during Sale-a-bration and choose which colour you would like!! Shop here or contact me at
