Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Christmas in the Making with Blends! Love the Blends…
Oh my, this is adorable! I really love this stamp set anyway, I’ve had so much fun using it, but when you bring in the new Stampin’ Blends to colour, it’s a whole new world.
It’s a patience thing with blends, lay down your light in a small area, add dabs of dark, come back over with the light again to blend. If necessary add a little colour lifter. But it’s totally worth it.
And this girl, who clearly doesn’t care that ‘red and pink’ shouldn’t go together now has attitude in spades! I mean, who would pair Navy boots with pink and red?!? She did!
There have been a few questions over which paper to use. I love to use our Thick Whisper White cardstock with Blends, but my favourite, and used here, is the Shimmery White.
I kept with the shimmery theme and popped dabs of Wink of Stella over the bobble on her hat and the fur trim on her coat, and then added the shimmery black ribbon to the top.
Did I have fun? Oh yes!
