Hi! I’m Sara Levin theartfulinker a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in the US. Welcome to my blog and the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Soft Pastels. The design team have a wonderful selections of creations to share with you using the Soft Pastels. I can’t wait to share my Soft Pastels creations and the accompanying video! Let’s take a look.
Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Soft Pastels
The Soft Pastels from Stampin’ Up! with 8 sticks of colors that are versatile in terms of coordinating with the various Color Families. They’re fun to use! And today, I’m sharing a couple of ideas for you to use for making backgrounds for your cards.
Cactus Cuties with Soft Pastels Background
The Soft Pastels are absolutely perfect for creating this sunset background for this desert setting. You’ll use the sticks of color to blend your sky.
Then stamp in your mountain range from Mountain Air.
And finish with a “build your own” cactus using the Cactus Cuties stamp set.
This easy card has enough detail to make it look like you’ve spent some extra time making a card for a friend or family member!
Special Moments with Soft Pastels Background
And for this second card, I’ve also created a fun background using the Soft Pastels.
Here I’ve used them with the Plenty of Patterns Masks and Embossing Paste.
The bright, fun design of the background doesn’t need much else. So, I added a Stitched Triangle die cut and a sentiment from Special Moments.
Add the FREE Special Moments stamp set to a qualify order before the January February 2022 Sale-a-Bration ends. This versatile sentiment set goes with everything!
