Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. And today is the OSAT Blog Hop Just Blend It. That means that all of us on the design team will be sharing creations using some sort of blending technique. I’ve created a card with the new Happiness Abounds stamp set to share with you.
OSAT Blog Hop Just Blend It
Happiness Abounds Friend Card
For my card, I chose the new Happiness Abounds stamp set that can be found in the 2022-23 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. This set arrived last night as part of my Pre Order and apparently, I couldn’t wait to get some ink on it and play.
When I was deciding on my color combo, I looked to the Hues of Happiness Designer Paper. Though I didn’t use the designer paper on this card, I did kind of CASE one of the flowers in the designer paper.
Now, this Hop is all about blending. So, I used a Blending Brush to created a blended ink background. I’m a fan of the subtle shading you can create with ink blending!
And, using my Stampin’ Blends, I blended the color onto the flowers and leaves.
To accent, I used the Gilded Leafing along the edge as I did in a previous card HERE
Then, I finished by adding elements from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack (retiring) and some Elegant Faceted Gems.
Thanks for stopping in today!
