Stampin' Blends

Sue's Stampin' Blends Club: Start Your Collection

Stampin-blends-club
Keen to collect your Stampin' Blends?  Join my new club and start your collection.

These are our high-quality, alcohol-based, dual-tip markers.  They come in many of our exclusive Stampin’ Up! colours.  Each colour comes in 2 shades to give you a great blending experience.  They're also sold separately if you ever need to replace just one which is quite handy.  They have a brush end and a fine end.   Use with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad.  

I've had mine for a few months now and can highly recommend them if you'd like to get started with some alcohol markers.  They blend beautifully. 

Join my Stampin' Blends Club and get your collection started.  There are two options.

CLUB ONE:  $75.70 per month for 3 months     27 Stampin' Blends in total

Each month for three months you'll order 4 pairs of Stampin' Blends plus one single Blend (Ivory Bronze or Colour Lifter) online using the special host code I'll email you.   That's 9 Stampin' Blends each month. You choose the colours.

Each month you'll receive a bonus free gift pack of things to help you with your colouring.  Over the 3 months this will include some shimmery white cardstock, some white cardstock - thick and regular, some vanilla cardstock - thick and regular and some beautiful embellishments to complement your colouring.  You can even colour your embellishments with your Blends to match your project.

CLUB TWO:  $60.20 per month for 3 months      21 Stampin' Blends in total

Each month for three months you'll order 3 pairs of Stampin' Blends plus one single Blend (Ivory Bronze or Colour Lifter) online using the special host code I'll email you.  That's 7 Stampin' Blends each month.  You choose the colours.

Each month you'll receive a bonus free gift pack of things to help you with your colouring.  Over the 3 months this will include some shimmery white cardstock, some white cardstock - thick and regular, and some vanilla cardstock - thick and regular and some lovely embellishments as well that you can colour to match your creation.

Tropical Escape DSP and Animal Outing

Rhino-card

The Tropical Escape DSP comes in a handy 6" x 6" size and makes a great leafy background.  There are various designs including leaves, stripes and more all in our lovely greens with some Blushing Bride and Basic Black for contrast. 

I've stamped the cute rhino from Animal Outing stamp set and coloured him with the lighter of the Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends, adding some extra touches with the darker alcohol marker.

Rhino-2

Kangaroo

Here's another variation using one of the other Tropical Escapes DSP (last day for our DSP special today.) 

I've stamped the kangaroo in black and coloured him with the watercolour pencils.  In August we have a new batch of pencils in alternative colours to the set in the main catalogue if you'd like to add to your pencil collection.  We've also got the Stitched Season framelits you can see featured in this card.  August only for the framelits and stamp set and while stocks last so grab them quick if you're keen on that lovely stitched edge shape.

Kangaroo-2

A great tip from the talented Tina Gillespie (find her here) is to blend the pencils using the Wink Of Stella clear glitter pen.  Love the touch of sparkle this gives.  (Hard to photograph!) 

Happy stamping!

Cheers, Sue

Blendabilities and Butterflies

I love love love this card.  (Inspired by this Linda Higgins' creation.)

The butterflies are a nice image to colour if you're just starting out with Blendabilities alcohol markers.  Quite loving our new lace too - teamed up here with the Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon.  The seam binding is so soft and easy to work with.  I'm completely bow challenged so I tend to just knot.  ;-)

We're making this card at class this week.  I've got 2 spots left on Thursday night (7.30pm - 9.30pm) if you're free and would like to try some colouring.  $30 includes a pack of Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities to use at class and take home afterwards.

Happy stamping and have a great week!

Cheers, Sue

Doing some shopping?  Here's what I used in today's card.


Blendabilities and Storybook Friends

Stampin' Up Australia have a very exciting product coming very soon - Blendabilities alcohol markers.  Perfect for colouring.  They won't be quite ready for the July 1 catalogue release but are not too far away.  As demonstrators we get to order early so I've got my packs and have been having fun playing. 

One of the stamp sets we're farewelling this month is Storybook Friends - another that I love.   And a fun one to practice some colouring.  I cut mine out with the Banner and Circle framelits and used some of the base cards from the Hip Hip Hooray kit - love those dotty and grid cards.  Aren't they cute with their added animals.  I spritzed them all with our Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz (page 164.)

Actually don't look too closely at this one - I went out of the lines a bit.  :-)
