How to Create a Layered Look with the Making Christmas Bright Stamp Set and Stampin' Blends Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the card that I made during last night's Facebook Live.  I wanted to share with everyone how to create a layered look to a solid stamp.  I used the Making Christmas Bright Stamp Set and a few Stampin' Blends to do this.  This is a great technique to stretch the life of your stamps and give them a new look without to much work.  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out making a one layer card but my plans changed a little once I decided on which stamp set I wanted to use.  Once I made that choice I made a mask with some post it tape and one of the stamps from the set.  I stamped the curved line on the post it tape and cut it out.  I added this to my card front and did a little ink blending with Mossy Meadow Ink.  Once I had the ink on the top of my Whisper White Thick cardstock I flicked on some gold and white perfect pearls.  
 Once I had the ink blending done I stamped the line that would hold the Christmas lights.  I then sat my card front aside and worked on the christmas bulbs.  I started out my stamping each colored bulb with the lightest color ink that I was going to use.  This is my base layer and also the next lightest color besides the highlights.  The highlight is added last with a white gel pen.  For the ink colors that I used for the bulbs are as followed; Call Me Clover, Flirty Flamingo, Mano Melody, Pineapple Punch, and Balmy Blue.  So once they were all stamped I let them sit for awhile to let the ink dry completely.  
Once the ink had dried I then took my Stampin' Blends and added in multiple colors to enhance the color and this created a layer look to the bulbs.  I added three different colors to each bulb in most cases.  For the Call Me Clover bulb I only did a two color blend.  So since I mentioned that lets start there.  For the Call Me Clover one I added a layer of Call me Clover light stampin blend and dark.  This added more tones and a glow to the bulb.  For the rest I did a three layer blend.  I used the following blends on each bulb starting with the red.  Reb Bulb; Flirty Flamingo ink, Stampin' Blends in Dark Flirty Flamingo, and light and dark Real Red.  Orange Bulb; Mango Melody ink, Pumpkin Pie light and dark stampin' blend with a little Mango Melody Dark blend.  Yellow bulb; pineapple punch ink with dark Pineapple Punch blend and light and dark Daffodil Delight Blends.  The finial bulb was done in Balmy Blue ink with balmy blue light and dark blends with a little Night of Navy light stampin' blends.  You can see by adding the blends to the images it adds more layers to them.
