Thank you for joining me live yesterday to see how to add ink direct to your rubber stamps with Blending Brushes! I used the Flowing Flowers stamp set (one of my favorites from Stampin’ UP!) to create this colorful and simple handmade birthday card!
After stamping onto the Scalloped Contours die cut, I layered it on top of a Pale Papaya embossed piece of cardstock. My favorite is the Pretty Flowers embossing folder, but any of the embossing folders we played with on the video would work… gosh, nearly ANY embossing folder would be great!
My color combo for adding ink direct to rubber is: Melon Mambo, Mango Melody & Granny Apple Green. I call these “Patty Colors”. You can select any color combo that you prefer. Dab your blending brush several times into your ink pad and pat and swirl it onto the rubber. Mixing the colors is fine, too. I dabbed the leaf portion of the stamp directly onto the ink pad, but you could also use Stampin’ Write Markers.
Tip! I wanted pretty sparkly ribbon on my card to go with the Iridescent Rhinestones, so I colored the White Glittered Organdy ribbon with the Granny Apple Green ink pad an my Blending Brush!
Add Iridescent Rhinestones to the flower centers to finish off this beauty!
When you watch the video, you’ll see that we tried the white embossing on the white background and it turned out so elegant!!
Then I decided to make one more after the live… here is a horizontal version with the Pale Papaya Pretty Flowers embossing folder background:
