Autumn Ombre Technique – Blending Brush Tutorial with Stampin’ Up!®’s Pretty Pumpkins Bundle


I adore a pretty autumn color palette – especially one that includes a pretty designer series paper. But what if you need colors that aren’t in a DSP package? You create your own custom designer paper, of course! Grab 2-3 coordinating Stampin’ Up! Classic Ink Pads, your trusty Blending Brushes and learn how to burnish deep saturated colors into your cardstock for custom backgrounds and features. Plus I’ll share a bonus trick for using Blending Brushes directly on your stamps with the Pretty Pumpkins set.

Today’s Pretty Pumpkings #SimpleStamping cutting sizes:

  • Very Vanilla Card Base: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
  • Rich Razzleberry Card Layer: 2 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
  • Very Vanilla Card Layer: 2″ x 5 1/2″


So many fun ideas for this set of supplies.

Ready to create your own Ombre Backgrounds with Pretty Pumpkins? Plus a tie-dye stamped image? Today’s video has a step-by-step lesson on the Ombre Background card, and will show you how to use Blending Brushes to add shading and highlights to your stamped images.
