Stampin Up - Easy background technique using glycerine and Enjoy Life stamp set

Have you ever struggled creating background? They can be quite tricky and blending is a bit of an art and can take time to master.  I have had many people comment about how easy I make blending a background with sponge daubers and it is sometimes difficult not to get little blobby circles and to now create a smooth blend.

Well I have a solution for you. Glycerine. The glycerine I use is for baking and is Dr Oetker, comes in a little bottle you can buy from most baking or cooking shops and most supermarkets sell it in the baking isle.  It is inexpensive and a little goes a long way.

Watch the video to see just how easy a background comes together with just a few drops of glycerine.





These were the lovely cards I created

Now as crafters we all make mistakes and bloopers and if you watch the video you will see a couple and how I rectified one.

ENJOY LIFE was the stamp set, which is such a great silhouette stamp set andlends itself to background techniques.

STAMPARATUS is the best positioning tool on the market at a great price point, so treat yourself and change the way you stamp forever.

Thanks so much for everyone who has subscribed to my YouTube channel and blog and if you haven't already then please do as I post lots of ideas and inspiration for you to have a go with.

Stampin Up Enjoy Life - How to create a heart beat framed card

What do I love about Stampin Up products? Well whatever card you want to make there is a stamp set that is suitable.  Add a bit of creativity and an idea and away you go.

ENJOY LIFE is the stamp set I chose.  Now unfortunately I have a couple of friends who are going through a really tough time having recently had strokes (heart attacks) and are bravely fighting through and working hard towards fitness.  The girl in the card with her hands in the air is such a powerful image and I surrounded her with butterflies and put her in a meadow of flowers.

I wanted to show their achievements so far after the stroke so put the border with a heart beat.

Watch the video so see how I created this.





Here is the completed card
The sentiment Wake Up Kick Butt Repeat is again a powerful statement and suitable for anyone facing a challenge.
However for those sporty people it would also be great too.
