Stampin' Up! Just Add Color DSP with Stampin' Blends

 

A few weeks ago I had a play doing some colouring with the new Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Instead of colouring stamped images, I used some 6x6 pieces of Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper. his is a heavy weight paper already printed with lots of great images, and the Stampin' Blends work beautifully with it.

I recently turned the colouring into cards, and here's what I came up with.

Colours in this one are Smokey Slate base card, with Pool Party and Calypso Coral. I used the Pool Party, Old Olive and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends, and finished off with some Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon (just LOVING this ribbon recently).

This one was Smoky Slate base, with Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. My greeting is from Window Shopping stamp set.

For the label, I extended the length of the Everyday Label punch, and popped an embossed circle behind for some balance. Like how that turned out. I think this one migt be a good card for a male family member or friend.

I love succulents and was happy how this one turned out. Base card is Old Olive embossed with Petal Burst embossing folder. I have used Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party and Smoky Slate Stampin' Write Markers.

Introducing Stampin' Up!'s new alcohol markers: Stampin' Blends.

Good morning friends. It's time to say hello to Stampin' Up! new alcohol markers, called Stampin' Blends.

Stampin Up Stampin Blends Alcohol Markers available in my online store in Australia. Bonus for full set purchase or jin my 4 month Stampin' Blends club.

 

What are they?

Artist-quality alcohol markers in 12 exclusive Stampin’ Up! shaded (light and dark in each shade), plus bronze and ivory for skin tones and a colour lifter to correct little mistakes.

 

What can I do with them?

  • Colour images and shade within colouring. Alcohol markers are superior for depth of colour and blending colours together resulting in beautiful rich saturated and shaded images. The best images to colour are line drawn images with lots of colouring space.
  • You can also use the markers to custom colour embellishments. For example change the colour of adhesive rhinestones or peals, our White Perfect Accents and even the silver metallic enamel shapes are great coloured (the Bronze Stampin Blends marker is great to colour embellishments so that they match our Copper Foil Paper).

 

 

What colours are they available in?

Light and dark shades of  Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate, Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Old Olive and Night of Navy. There is also an Ivory and Bronze marker for skintones and a colour lifter to fix little mistakes or to lift colour. You can see the full range of colours and additional information in this 8 page brochure about Stampin' Blends.

The order will be placed as soon as your order notification comes through if online, or be included with your order if ordering by phone or email, so will arrive either at the same time or very close to so you can begin colouring!

 

Why are they so cool?

  • Perfectly coordinate with our cardstock, inks and papers because they are in our exclusive colours.
  • You can add just the right amount of colour with the choice of a fine tip and brush end on each marker.
  • Superior blending, and availability in a light and dark shade produces great shading options. I really like the light shades in these markers as I’m not one for deeply or dark coloured images. In many cases I found I could get great results with layering the light colour alone.
  • The colour lifter works to remove any areas outside the lines and can also be used to lighten areas.
  • Press fit seal prevents air from entering the barrel and causing evaporation.
  • The nestable lids are easy to keep track of and have a tight-fit for long lasting colour.

 

What ink pad do I use to stamp images?

Because these inks are alcohol based, you need to use a dye based ink. We recommend and sell Memento black ink for use with Stampin’ Blends. Do not use Stazon as the outline will bleed. See my FREE ink pad/refill offer above (in the ‘What are they?’ section.

Memento blck ink to use with Stampin' Blends. Available from my online store in Australia.

What’s the best Cardstock to use?

I recommend Thick Whisper White. It’s normal for alcohol inks to soak through the cardstock when blending, so make sure you use a surface protector or some cardboard or grid paper under your image when colouring.

Another great option is to use our Just Add Colour Specialty Designer Paper. I coloured lots of those images and intend to turn them into cards over the next week.

Stampin' Up! Beachy Little Christmas for Heart of Christmas 22

Graphic

Hello my lovely stamping friends, It's warming up in Melbourne, so this week for The Art With Heart Team Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas number 22, we have a summer themed Christmas card using Beachy Little Christmas. I love the little beach shacks (bathing boxes) in this set as they feature in various places along the Melbourne coastline in all their brightly coloured glory. In some suburbs, these cute little beach shacks sell for astronomical amounts of money because they are so popular and rarely come up for sale.

For my colouring, I have used the brand new soon to be released Stampin' Blends (available November 1st for customers). These are our reformulated and improved alcohol markers and I have really loved playing with them over the last few weeks.  They can be purchased individually, in a set of light and dark, or the whole set together.

For today's card I used Crumb Cake light and dark, Bermuda Bay light and dark, Daffodil Delight dark, Old Olive light, Pumpkin Pie light and Cherry Cobbler dark. I coloured on thick whisper white.

I've also used the Seaside embossing folder to carry through the beach theme. The patterned paper is from Merry Little Christmas Designer Series paper pack in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. Here's a closer look at the Beachy Little Christmas stamp set available until 2nd January in the Holiday Catalogue.
