Have you ever seen a card making technique and knew you had to try it? That is what happened to me over the weekend. I knew I wanted to use the Quiet Meadows bundle, and I knew I wanted a blending technique. All I needed now was the card design. So today I am introducing you to blending and vellum with Quiet Meadows.
This is such a quick and easy card making technique. I happen to see it created by a design team member of Unity Stamps. This technique, I thought it was beautiful. I wanted to put my own spin on the design and used the Quiet Meadows stamp set and the new In-Color Soft Succulent.
The card base of the card is Soft Succulent measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2. There is also an additional layer of Soft Succulent measuring 5 3/8 x 4 1/8. The layer of Basic White and Vellum are 5 1/4 x 4. I stamped the image on the vellum with Stazon ink, it was also stamped on masking. Before blending the color on the Basic White layer, I masked the image using the vellum as a template. Added the color using a Stampin’ Blend blending brush. Glue dots were added under the stamped image and to each of the four corners. Once the card was finished, I added a bow and the sentiment.
Let me explain the technique further. I stamped the image and sentiment with Stazon ink on the vellum. The image is masked and color was blended on the basic white layer. Once the mask was removed, the vellum was laid on top of the Basic White layer.
I did not forget the inside of the card. My idea was to stamp off the image but I was creating so quickly, I forgot to stamp off.
