Fall Inspired Blended Background with Distress Ink and My Favorite Things Stamps

Hi, friends! Today I have another card for you featuring Distress Inks. Lately I’ve been enjoying these inks so much. In this video, I’m showing you how to create a Fall inspired blended background and I’m featuring some stamps from My Favorite Things’ September 2017 Release.

I started out by masking off my white card stock to create a panel for my Fall scene. I used Carved Pumpkin ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS ) and Fossilized Amber Distress Ink ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ) to blend the background. It’s very important to really saturate your blending foam so you can do effortless and flawless blending!

After adding subtle water splatters, I stamped the trees from the Modern Trees stamp ( ELH | SSS | HLM ) with Archival Jet Black Ink ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ). The new Bitty Bears stamp set from My Favorite Things ( ELH | SSS | HLM )is simply adorable. I colored only two bears this time, but I’m planning on making more cards so I can use all of them!

This card came together relatively quick! After stamping a sentiment, all I had to do was add some shimmer and shine with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen ( ELH | SSS | AMZUS ) and Glossy Accents ( ELH | AMZUS | SSS ). I also adhered a cute die cut heart for an extra touch of cuteness!

That’s it for now. Thanks for stopping by today and I’ll see you soon. Xo
