I love bringing you new product releases, and this one may just be among my favorites! If you’ve been waiting for Stampin’ Up! to add alcohol markers to its product line of coloring mediums – the wait is over! Introducing new Stampin’ Blends!
I am in LOVE with these easy to use markers. The ink flows smoothly, blends beautifully and they are really easy to use! I have tried other alcohol markers but the learning curve was always very steep – what colors go with what? Stampin’ Up! has made this learning curve as easy as coasting downhill on a bicycle. Each of the colors comes in two shades, for example Old Olive light and Old Olive dark, so there’s no scratching your head to try and figure out what will blend together. And not only do they blend so beautifully, but you can build layers to create even more shades. Let me show you what I mean…
In the picture below I used Cherry Cobbler light and dark to color the presents. Look at the great shading you can get! And Bella is colored with Bronze and Ivory. If you look closely at Bella’s ear and face, you can actually make out 4 different shades of color – all from just those two markers and the color lifter. I will be featuring more about coloring using the Blends when I post this card later but wanted to show what you can achieve using the new Stampin’ Blends.
Stampin’ Blends will be available for ordering on November 1st – just a couple of weeks away! You can purchase them individually, in packs of 2 (light and dark of each color) or the entire set along with Bronze, Ivory and a color lifter (great for pushing back color that has escaped outside the lines).
There is a Color Me Happy Project Kit and Color Me Happy stamp set that will be available only while supplies last, but the Stampin’ Blends markers will be available through the upcoming catalogs. And, Stampin’ Up! will have a series of great YouTube videos on how to use the new Blends so stay tuned for more!
As always, if you have any questions about the Blends or any of the other great products by Stampin’ Up! please leave me a comment and I will be happy to answer them. If you don’t have a demonstrator, I would love to be yours so drop me a note below. Ta for now!
