You can’t resist watching how blender pens make their magic on handmade cards. It’s SO easy & fun! This monochromatic card design is great for the guys too! It’s a technique that works well for card making and many other paper crafts too. 

Blender pens are colorless so that you can use them in a multitude of ways.

This watercolor look is super easy to achieve by just blending the ink that is part of your stamped image.

The blender pens can work like watercolor brush.

More Ideas With the Enjoy The Moment Stamp Set

I think the blender pens pair well with the Stampin' Up! Enjoy Every Moment stamp set.

The above cards are made using the Basic White Note Cards and Envelopes.  You can see with the card on the left I used the same blender pen technique as in the video, while the card on the right is just stamped.

This masculine card was made with blender pen and stamped block technique.

I love how the background on this card turned out.  I just inked up my clear blocks and used them as stamps!  A little tip–practice to see how you like the colors.  I used Crumb Cake, but stamped off onto scrap paper first and then spritzed with a little water before I stamped it.  

I will do a video soon showing how easy it is to get this look.

This birthday card was made with blender pens and a little ink.

For this one, I stamped all the images on a piece of Basic White, then cut the center out with a Stitched Rectangle Die.  The center piece from the die, I trimmed off a little bit from all sides so you could see the Early Espresso player underneath.
