Blending with Three Stampin' Blends Colors

I can’t stop creating projects ever since the new Stampin' Blends came out!
Today I‘m going to give you step-by-step instructions for blending using three colors. Of course, everybody has different techniques for using the markers, but I find this technique to be the easiest—although it does take a bit of practice.
I decided to use the Balloon Bouquet Punch (item 140609) and the Stampin' Blends Markers in Pink Pirouette and Rich Razzleberry to illustrate.

  1. Color one half of the balloon in Dark Pink Pirouette (item 144592).
  2. Color in a fine line in the right corner with Light Rich Razzleberry (item 144584).
  3. Blend with Dark Pink Pirouette. Keep blending Pink Pirouette with Rich Razzleberry several times. (Please note that you will only see the actual blending effect once the cardstock has completely dried.)
  4. Color the rest of the balloon using Light Pink Pirouette (item 144593).
  5. Add a bit of Dark Pink Pirouette.
  6. Blend the transition from Dark Pink Pirouette to Light Pink Pirouette and the balloon is done!

Additional Color Combinations

Pool Party: Light Pool Party (item 144595); Dark Pool Party (item 144594); Dark Bermuda Bay (item 144579)
Daffodil Delight: Light Daffodil Delight (item 144586); Dark Daffodil Delight (item 144585); Dark Pumpkin Pie (item 144577)

Birthday Card Project

I added these balloons to a birthday card created with the Celebration Time Bundle (item 145369).
I stamped the cake on my card using Memento Ink (item 132708) on Pink Pirouette Cardstock (item 111351) and cut out the image and additional pieces with the matching Framelits. The party hat is made of Bermuda Bay Cardstock (item 131197); I used Rich Razzleberry (item 115316) and Daffodil Delight (item 119683) Cardstock to make the candles on the cake. I stamped the banner with Memento Ink on Whisper White Cardstock (item 100730) and cut it out with Paper Snips (item 103579).
I then arranged all of my images and pieces and glued them on a circle made using the Stitched Shapes Framelit (item 145372).

For the background I stamped a sentiment from the Celebration Time Stamp Set (item 143790) in Daffodil Delight (item 126944), Rich Razzleberry (item 126950), and Bermuda Bay (item 131171) ink.
To decorate my card, I used the Bermuda Bay 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon (item 144198), the Silver Mini Sequin Trim (item 144230), and Glitter Enamel Dots (item 144200).

I hope you like my project and I wish you lots of fun with the Stampin' Blends!
