Totally Techniques - Stampin' Blends

Welcome to our November 2017 Totally Techniques blog hop.  We're sharing ideas for using the Stampin' Blends.  They are so much fun to use and give fabulous colours and allow shading which in turns adds depth to your images. I've used mine to colour this fun card that I made to say thank you to the fabulous Chef Rachel Green who is based in Lincolnshire.  She offers 'secret suppers' in the Lincolnshire Wolds and we went for the first time last week. It was awesome and great to catch up with old friends we hadn't seen in quite a while.  Her beautiful house is full of an eclectic mix of decor that works so well and that's why I"ve added such a mix of lanterns, shrubs and flowers outside this front door.  Look inside and you'll spy one of her cute dogs although he wasn't wearing a coat!

Using the Stampin' Blends has allowed me to mix colours by blending lighter and darker shades.  I've used the coordinating dies to cut out individual elements and of course allow an opening in the door to reveal the remainder of my thank you message.  You can add whatever you want behind the door from a creeping Santa to your Christmas tree or a picture on a wall in the back of the room.  There's always the chance it could be a step into another world like Narnia.  

You can see the others on the hop from the links below.  Have fun touring and check out the Stampin' Up! video I have shared to give you a beginner's guide to the fabulous Stampin' Blends. 

You can buy any of the blends individually, in pairs or the whole bundle from my online shop. Click here Zoe Tant Stampin Up Online Shop
