NEW STAMPIN’ BLENDS – AVAILABLE NOW!!!

Stampin' Blends/ Videos

Happy Friday Stampers! I hope you've had a chance to try our Stampin' Blends. We've been waiting for all the NEW colors to arrive in the warehouse and they're here!

I totally LOVE, LOVE mine. I know you'll enjoy them, too.

The high-quality, dual-tipped markers offer you an artist-quality blending experience. They come in Stampin' Up!'s exclusive colors which gives you a brand new world full of color creativity!

Have fun experimenting with blending using light and dark shades of the same color or try blending colors with similar hues for a different look. You'll want to be sure to use a Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad to stamp your image to prevent bleeding.

If you have any blending questions or need anything, please just ask.  I'm happy to help! 🙂

You Are Loved Saturday Share

Sale-A-Bration/ Stampin' Blends

Hey Stampers! I just had to take a break from working on taxes so what do I do? I stamp, of course! I wanted to use my Stampin' Blends markers to see how they work with the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper. You can still get this paper as a free item for the next few weeks during Sale-A-Bration. It was perfect for my You Are Loved Saturday Share.

You Are Loved Saturday Share

I colored in one of the foil flowers using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends and then used the Old Olive Blends to finish it off. I used the light Pumpkin Pie marker first, then came back in on a couple of petals with the dark and went over again with the light to create the marbled look on the flower.  I did the same thing on  the leaves, using the Old Olive Blends.

I did “fussy cut” this flower. Another idea would be to cut out as a square, and mount on a slightly larger piece of coordinating cardstock. The greeting is from another free Sale-A-Bration set, Blossoming Basket. You can get this stamp set plus the Basket Weave Embossing Folder as a free  bundle with a $100 purchase. If you're in a shopping mood, I'd love for you to shop at my online store! 🙂

I usually use my Blends markers on Whisper White or Shimmer White paper but I was happy with this result, too. It's always fun to experiment, right?

Same Stampin’ Blends Different Look – Coloring Techniques

Stampin' Blends/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Same Stampin' Blends Different Look – Coloring TechniquesHappy Saturday Stampers! I've been working on samples today that show some coloring techniques and tips using Stampin' Up!'s Alcohol Markers, Stampin' Blends.

Same Stampin' Blends Different Look - Coloring Techniques

Both samples were done with light and dark Blends in Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive. The one on the right was stamped on Whisper White cardstock and the one on the left with Sahara Sand. Notice the subtle difference? The Sahara Sand is a more fibrous cardstock so the ink in the markers soaks in a bit more. The colors also look darker, even though I colored both images in the same manner. I like to start with the lighter color first and the lay down my darker shade when I want more contrast. You could easily do it the opposite way if you prefer.

Take a look at my video on Facebook and you'll see a few more tips.

If you need any supplies, including the Stampin' Blends, you can purchase them at my online store.

Now, off for a walk to enjoy the sun!
