Coloring with Blending Brushes - SAVI Sunday 50

SAVI Sunday 50:  Coloring Designer Series Paper  with Blending Brushes

I cannot express enough how I love our new Blending Brushes.  They blend color on paper like a dream so today I want to show you a quick way to add color to the black and white, 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper we have, called True Love.  

Black and white paper is always wildly popular.  There is so much you can do with it to add your own color and twist. 

True Love DSP

Be sure to watch my Video Here or see the video below. 


I used the Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon, ink and card stock as the primary color.  I then incorporated some Highland Heather and Old Olive.  

Here's a closer look:

Using The New Blender Brushes

Hi there! 

Hope you are having a great day.  I have two card projects for you, featuring the New Blending Brushes.  I am in love with these Brushes and may never use a sponge again for adding color to my projects.  The thousand of bristles are so, so soft.  You ever go into the store and walk past a blanket or robe and they are so soft that you just want to wrap yourself in them?  Well that is how I feel about these brushes.  LOL.  The bristles are soooo soft I can't stop playing with them.

SAVI Sunday - Episode 34 Mirror Stamping

SAVI Sunday 34 - Mirror Stamping

Thank you for joining me for my next Savi Sunday video showing you how to do Mirror Stamping, also known as reverse stamping.  I am highlighting the Dove of Hope stamp set from the bundle available in the 2020 Holiday catalog (2020 August-December mini catalog).  You'll have to forgive my photography this time as I am away from home and my usual process.  :)


You can see my video HERE to see the easy method I do using the Stamparatus and Silicone craft sheet.  You will stamp the dove on the right onto the Smoky Slate card stock.  Remove the Smoky Slate CS and place your silicone mat into the Stamparatus and stamp the dove.  Now flip over your CS and place into Stampartus and rub over area where you stamped on the silicone mat to transfer the ink.  The video shows this process so it may be easier to understand. 

Card Details

  • Cherry Cobbler card base 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
  • Smoky Slate CS 4 x 5-1/4
  • Dove and words are inked in Misty Moonlight

Thanks for popping by and don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.

We BEE Stamping Blog Hop - Sharing A Technique


Hi!  Thank you for checking out our blog hop.  We are all sharing a stamping technique with you, so I hope you enjoy and like our ideas.

My technique is the Emboss Resist method.  It is one of my favorite techniques to do and it has been around forever.  I love embossing too!


Emboss resist is when you use embossing powder to resist color added to card stock.  For this project, I used White Embossing Powder on Whisper White card stock then applied my ink colors over top.  You could also use clear embossing powder and also use colored card stock.  The possibilities are endless. 

Card Details:

Stamp Set Bundle:  Snowflake Wishes Bundle

Card Stock:  Balmy Blue, Petal Pink and Whisper White and Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper

Ink:  Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Petal Pink and VersaMark

Accessories:  White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Snowflake Splendor 1/4" Ribbon, Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems, Stampin' Sponges

  • Balmy Blue card base cut to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2.  Scored at 4-1/4 on long side
  • Petal Pink CS cut 4-1/8 x 5-3/8, die cut snowflake from middle and set snowflake to the side. 
  • Adhere Petal Pink 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 piece on top of card base
  • Whisper White CS cut 4 x 5-1/4, randomly stamp snowflakes all over with VersaMark ink
  • Cover snowflakes with White Embossing powder then heat set
  • Sponge Balmy Blue, Highland Heather and Petal Pink over heat embossed snowflakes
    •    work on scrap paper & start swirling ink on from scrap paper to your project.  This helps prevent harsh ink marks
  • Adhere piece of ribbon onto embossed and sponged piece then adhere on top of Petal Pink CS
  • Die cut a different snowflake from Highland Heather CS and Glue Dot to the Petal Pink snowflake
  • Die cut yet another different snowflake out of the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper
  • Glue dot Glimmer snowflake with glue dot and place a Blue Gem in Center

    • my words on Whisper White that is approximately 3/8 x 2-1/2
    • Balmy Blue CS mat is approximately 1/2 x 2-5/8
    • Add to card front with Mini Dimensionals

I hope you enjoyed my project.  Give the emboss resist technique a try!
