Stampin’ Up! just announced that the fabulous alcohol-based Stampin’ Blends markers will be available to everyone starting November 1st!! I’m super excited!! There are currently 12 color pairs to choose from, 2 skin tone single markers, and a Color Lifter. If you plan to purchase any or all of them, remember to also get the Memento Tuxedo Black pad for stamping the images you’ll be coloring in so you won’t get “bleeding” during the coloring processes.
Yesterday I made these note cards with the Blends to send with prizes to a few in my Stampers With ART group.
Then I quickly hopped on Facebook to broadcast and record a how-to video showing how simple coloring with Blends can be. Be sure to watch this video (below) for basic tips and techniques.
After watching this, I hope you gained some basic knowledge to feel confident enough to try these new markers out.
Do you feel like making these cards that I shared? Here are the measurements you’ll need.
- Whisper White Cardstock: 3″ x 4-1/2″ and 7″ x 5″ folded in half at 3-1/2″ for the card base (or a Whisper White Note Card)
- Colored Cardstock: 3-1/8″ x 4-5/8″
And here are a few more photos – close-ups of each card.

And this last one is the Rich Razzleberry Blends/Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock combo.
They sure are fun to look at all at once! Eye-candy. 😉
