Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop | Stampin' Blends

Why hello there! It's time again for the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! And this hop we are using the ALL NEW - STAMPIN' BLENDS!!!! Super exciting to be showing you all the Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. Woot, Woot!!

These are Stampin' Up!'s premier alcohol markers. Stampin' Blends are a high-quality, dual-tip marker that come in 12n of Stampin' Up!'s exclusive colours, each with a light and a dark shade. Maybe you don't think of yourself as an artist, but you don't need to be because these beautiful markers make it so easy to blend colours and create gorgeous works of art.

I love, love, love colouring whether being with ink and Aqua Painters or watercolour pencils, the Stampin' Blends just add to that colouring love that I have. I'm not going to be able to put the Blends down! They are so good!

I've created three Christmas cards for you today using the Seasonal Lantern Stamp Set and the Lantern Builder Framelit Dies.  This stamp set has lots of open line art work which makes it perfect for colouring with the Stampin' Blends markers and a chance for lots of colourful creativity.

I've teamed up the coloured images with the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper for that full Christmas creation. Now is the perfect time to get going on the Christmas cards because before you know it Christmas will be here. The more you can create now the less stressful the Christmas period will be for you.

When using the Blends, Tuxedo Black Memento ink works best as it doesn't bleed when colouring with the markers and the Stampin' Up! Thick Whisper White cardstock is the best cardstock to use.

How you colour with the markers comes down to personal preference. I like to put a little bit of the dark colour down first and then blend and colour with the light marker. Others like to colour each section with the light marker and then add the darker colour. Its up to you how you use them. There is no right or wrong. 

The more you go over with colour the darker the saturation is going to be so if you want the graduation of colour, especially when using the light markers, less is more. A lighter touch also helps to get less bleeding of the colour outside the lines of the artwork.

Get your hands on these fabulous markers and get colouring. The more you colour with the Blends the more confident you will be with your colouring and your creativity. Practice makes perfect!

The markers are available for you NOW to purchase and for you to get creative with. Check them out here at my Australian Online Store and contact me for more information on these fabulous markers.
