Welcome to the STAMPING INKspirations BLOG HOP for April 2021. This month we are focusing on celebrating birthdays! And for my project, I opted to focus on the guys. I am featuring the Whiskey Business stamp set and some fun Blend Coloring. Here’s a quick video demonstration to take you through the process.
This card layout is rather simple. You could certainly CASE it, and make a project of your very own with any number of other sets. I share the full tutorial with you down below in the post, so if you need the materials & measures they are easily found.
Now that you have visited with me, and I hope my project may have inspired you, it’s time to send you along to the next blog with Melissa Faust . Please leave me and the other paper crafters comments on our posts. We just love to know what you think of our ideas.

Stamp your Images and Color with the Blends
Stamp with Memento ink onto neutral cardstock.
Then add layers of colors with the Blend Markers.
Trim the images with your Paper Snips.
Emboss your Cardbase with your Embossing Folder
Create the textured stamped layer or use Patterned Paper 4 ¼ x 2.
I used Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.
I stamped the wood plank image down the length of the cardstock.
I allowed for the ends to alternate position and overlapped for embellishment as well.
Stamp your Sentiments
I stamped both sentiments with Early Espresso ink for contrast to the cardstock layer.
Inside Layer Blend Colored Image
For this project I stamped the glass of whiskey inside the card as well.
Once again I used my Blends to color the images.
The ink will lighten as it dries, so experiment with the results when not coloring on white or vanilla cardstock.
