Are you ready for another Blendabilities card? I have another one for you today…. this was another card that I made using up the bits and pieces I had lying around my craft room. From a stamped Blended Bloom image that needed to be colored to the Striped Scallop thinlit and the cut out pieces from a Dazzling Diamond Glimmer paper die cut. A little bit of this and a little bit of that can come together for something new and fun like this:
And if you are interested, I finally got my Blendabilties Basics video up to share the basics about these markers along with tips and techniques for coloring your images along with a few other fun ways to use your markers that DON’T involve stamping! I have the video below for you to check out!
Tips for making this card:
- Use the 2-way Glue Pen for an easy and mess-free way to adhere your Striped Scallop die cut to your project – like the Early Espresso die cut I have on my card.
- You can put your die cut over cardstock for a simple accent, or step it up a notch by using the leftover cutouts from a prior project to fill in the gaps! In this case I had previously cut out a Striped Scallop piece from the Dazzling Diamond glimmer paper. I used the outline on a different card and kept the teardrop pieces that had been left behind to use later. So when I was making this card, I just started gluing them the the holes on this card!
- For a different take on leaves, use the Scalloped Tag Topper punch to create two scalloped pieces. Let them peek out from behind your flower for a hint of green.
- When coloring your flower, it is a big enough image that you will want to color it a few petals at a time. I recommend finishing up 2-4 petals at a time instead of trying to do all of them at once, which would cause the ink to dry too much and keep them from blending well.
I actually walk through coloring a few petals of this flower along with other flowers and projects in this Blendabilities Basics video:
