Today’s card features the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves stamp set and our Blending Brushes. If you haven’t tried using our Blending Brushes, they make it so easy to make a beautiful background. Not only will you have a one of a kind background, but it’s really relaxing too! 


Gorgeous Leaves Stamping with Tracy


I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for the base of my card.  Next, I used one of our Blending Brushes to pick up Magenta Madness ink and blend it over the paper until I had the shade I wanted.  Then, using another Blending Brush, I lightly blended Daffodil Delight ink over the top.

Tip:  After picking up the ink on the brush, brush the ink over your grid paper before applying it to the Basic White cardstock. If you pick up the ink and directly start blending on your Basic White, you’ll get blotches of color. I pick up the color and then blend in a circular motion on the grid paper and then, without picking up the blending brush, continue onto my paper.  


Blending Brushes


After getting the color I wanted, I used the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set to stamp two different leaves in Memento Ink.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card front. 



The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Basic White cardstock in Memento Ink using the stamp set, Biggest Wish and was cut out using the Tasteful Labels Dies.  Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back of the sentiment before it was adhered to the card front
