TE Blender Brushes on Emboss Resist Technique!

Welcome back! Hope you enjoyed my review post yesterday on TE blender Brushes.

Today I am using these new blender brushes to do emboss resist technique. I have a video on one of my cards and a photos of few other projects. Hope you enjoy this one too.

I used distress oxide inks on my cards here. Did not wash my brushes after using them on dye inks yesterday. I like that the brushes are primed with the inks already. They will pick up inks much better now. That is my opinion on the concept. Anyway, the blender brushes work very well sponging inks on embossed images without any issues. Here are the photos of the card in the video as well as some more emboss resist technique.

Introducing new Blender Brushes from Taylored Expressions! Plus a Video!

I cannot even express how excited I am to share with you the new Blender Brushes from Taylored Expressions. I have been using them for weeks now. It was so hard to keep it a secret. How many times have I come close to blurting out and had to refrain myself! Also avoid showing them in photos. It was hard I tell you. Now I can shout it from the top of the roof. Yay! You can find the new Blender Brushes and Spinning Caddy from Taylored Expressions Store.

So in this post, I will be introducing these new Blender Brushes and also use them on stencils. There are two more post coming tomorrow and one after using these brushes on various other techniques. In today’s post, I have a video reviewing the brushes and using them on stencils. Then I also have lots of projects to share using the stenciled background I have made. So make your self tea or coffee or a grab a drink and snack and get ready to be amazed. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am excited if you can’t tell already.

So in my opinion, these Blender Brushes are a must have in your craft collection. Here are a few reasons why I think so:

  1. They are all the perfect one size.
  2. The bristles are white so you can see what colour ink you have picked up on your brush.
  3. The handles are colour coded so you can assign each colour brush to each colour shade of inks.
  4. These brushes are washable and reused.
  5. The spinning caddy is a great storage for these brushes.
  6. Aesthetically pleasing on your craft desk.
  7. You can use the same brush on both dye and pigment inks.
  8. Blending is so soft and coverage is amazing.
  9. Depending on where you hold the brush, you can achieve soft or intense colours on your paper.
  10. Also depending on the pressure you apply on the brush, you can vary the application of colours.
  11. Easy to build or layer colours
  12. Very ergonomic to use.
  13. Can do a lot of technique used these brushes.

If you have any questions, just shoot them to me in the comments. I will try my best to answer them.

Here are the photos of all the projects I did with the stencils today.

HBD card set!

I am down with flu. But thankfully I got my flu shot. So my symptoms are not debilitating. Having said that, I am still not be fully functional. Yet nothing stops me from crafting. I made couple of cards and a did a voice over for a video, edited, wrote a blog post…. This is me. I cannot sit still or rest. So here I am sharing with you couple of the cards I made.

Hello and welcome! I am Gayatri , a Papercrafter. Today I have two birthday cards to share. I have been ink blending a lot and loving the technique. Both the cards today features ink blending. Both the cards are very clean and simple. The ink blending and colours are the highlights on the cards. All products I have used on both the cards are from Simon Says Stamp. So here they are:

HBD card set

I simply masked white cardstock panel to get a large strip to blend the inks. On one panel, I used Simon’s Mint, High Dive, Island Blue and Deep Sea dye inks. On the other, I sponged Lemon Chiffon, Sunshine, Orange Burst and Doll Pink. Then I removed the masks. I stamped the sentiment from Simon’s Tiny Words Birthday stamp set below the ink blended strip using black ink and MISTI to get the sentiments straight.

Then I used the CZ design HBD die on the ink blended strip. I die cut two using white cardstock and one using gold glitter cardstock. I stacked and glued them with the gold glitter on top. I adhered this on the centre of the ink blended strip. Then I trimmed the panel to 4″ x 5.25″ inches in size and adhered to white card base using foam adhesives. A few confetti from Simon’s Groovy sequins collection to finish off the card.
