Stampin’ Blend alcohol markers are here and I couldn’t be more delighted! As a child, I was a bookworm (and still am) and never really enjoyed huge colouring in sheets. Whereas now, I love being able to add tone and shade to a stamped image and the relaxation and concentration that comes with it.
I really understand what people mean when they connect colouring with mindfulness.
So when Stampin’ Up! launched some blendable alcohol markers – Stampin’ Blends, I was keen to see what they could do. Granted, I have only scratched the surface, but have had so much fun already! If you’re already experienced with alcohol markers, you’re going to love these!
The Stampin’ Blends
They have some amazing features, they:
- Come in light, dark or combo packs.
- Have a brush end and a bullet nib so you can get in close or cover large areas.
- Blend easily.
- Blend and re-blend, so you can lighten dark areas and keep adding colour.
- Have a flesh tone and colour lifter (for excited crafters like me, who go outside the lines).
- Can be used on Thick Whisper White and also Shimmery White card stock.
- Are available in a variety of our key colours.
- Have stackable caps so the nibs stay inky.
- Close tightly so there is no evaporation.
The Stampin’ Blends Colour Me Happy Kit
Here’s what I’ve been making with them…
These beautiful cards are part of a Limited Edition kit, made specifically for the Stampin’ Blends. I loved making the insides of the lanterns look like light was shining, and the shaded birds are so much fun to colour. (Anything is with these to be honest!) They come with beautiful envelopes and a coordinating Stamp Set: Color Me Happy
The Stampin’ Blends Video
I have made two new videos to help you with your Stampin’ Blends. The first is a general tips and advice from my first practices with the pens, which I’ve posted below. The second is a video walking you through the kit, which I’ll be posting later this week.
I hope this video helps you get to grips with these amazing new, fun tools. I will be adding to these videos once I’ve learned a little more.
The kit is available as a bundle, and the pens can also be bought as a bundle. I’d definitely recommend the colour lifter for outside the lines mistakes, as well as the ivory pen for areas of sunlight on an image.
Please shout if you have any questions about these great new pens, and I’d be glad to try and help.
In the meantime, happy colouring!
Don’t forget the November Host Code when you check out online. I send a thank you gift when you order, but Host Code users get extra special treats on top!
Pens are available individually, in combo packs or as a complete set…
