A blog for sharing rubber stamps and stamping ideas and inspiration! I love stamping and scrapbooking. I love The Angel Company's stamps, papers, and embellishments! So, this is my little space to post my creations in a gallery. They are listed by set. Hopefully you'll enjoy your time here and come back often!

10. To use blending stumps:
You will want one stump per color family so that the colors don’t get mixed and muddy. Start with the lightest color in the lightest area. Dip the end of the stump in the mineral spirits for a few seconds. Hold it up to let the liquid be absorbed before you apply it to the image. To blend the colors place the stump in a light area of the color you are working with. Making circular motions rub the blender around on the colored area until the lines have softened and it looks painted. Repeat this with each color until the image is complete.
11. Assemble the card as shown. Add dots of Red Stickles to the lights.
