Partridge & Pears Blendabilities Heat Embossed Christmas Card

by Joanne James29. November 2014 07:00

A nice early post from me today as I have a busy day ahead. I'm just in time to squeeze in a link up with the lovely designers over at SUO Challenges, where the latest challenge is to make a project using any kind of Stampin' Up! markers. I use my Stampin' Write markers frequently, but wanted to showcase a card using one of my most favourite new(ish) Stampin' Up! products - Blendabilities. I made a version of this card in my September card class, but didn't blog it so wanted to share today as it not only uses Blendabilities but a really fun technique too. Here is my card:

My card features the 'Partridges & Pears' stamp set. I stamped the main image in Versamark on Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed in white embossing powder, then used my Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Skin tone, Smoky Slate, Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities to colour the heat-enbossed image. I kept the layout of my card quite simple, matting the central panel on a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock before adhering to my black card base and finishing with a wide flagged piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock, with the sentiment stamped across it in Memento Black ink. This card was difficult to photograph and does look more vibrant in real life - the image really stands out against the black. This is another great way to use your Blendabilities markers, in addition to straightforward blended colouring. 

That's all from me today; we have homework to do, a spot of housework, school Christmas Fayre, swimming lessons and dinner with friends to fit in today - wish me luck! Back tomorrow with this week's design team card for The Paper Players; until then, happy stampin'!

Thanks Julie - this card looks way more vibrant in real life, the photo really doesn't do it justice. I'm a big fan of markers in general, but Blendabilities are my absolute favourite - they really are so versatile!

Hi Joanne, what a brilliant idea, I have been doing a lot of white embossing recently; I must give this a try, it looks really affective! x

Gorgeous...I love that technique and it looks great paired (no pun intended) with this stamp image!  Love how you did the banner along the bottom, too!  Thanks for playing along with the Marker Fun SUO Challenge this time!
