See some cards made with ink blending and how truly easy it can be!

Yes, our designers are professional grade and are able to achieve beautiful effects often with more ease than us civilians. But with our Color Fuse Ink and the right tools, cards made with ink blending effects is totally within reach of even the most novice stamper.

Here’s the card that got us on this kick:

You all LOVED this card when it came out earlier this year and with that beautiful, glowy background, we can see why!

Here’s another card that uses the same technique in cooler colors:

Both just stunning, no? And while there ARE other inks that let you blend well, we spent extra time and effort with our ink formulators to make absolutely sure our Color Fuse Inks would blend beautifully. We made sure the consistency and composition of the ink would just marry with no blotches or lines and we drove the color people NUTS making sure every shade in every set had the exact right balance so the shades would melt into each other.

Now, most of our designers love using those super soft blending brushes but really any of your favorite applicators will work to blend these inks in a way that creates these soft, luscious effects.

Here’s a gorgeous card that uses just one shade of ink blended over a pierced background:
