Stampin' Blends for beautiful colouring from Stampin'Up Australia

As many of you may know, we were excited for the release of the new Stampin' Blends just last Wednesday, November 1st.  This weekend I have the privilege of demonstrating them at the Penrith Craft Show.  I'm so pleased to report that people are so excited about these new Alcohol markers, and the results speak for themselves. Not only are they easy to use, they make you feel like a real artist!  I created the card you see above by simply colouring with several of the autumn tones on our "Just add Colour" speciality DSP.  I also used the light Pool Party marker as a background colour.  I love how it turned out.... and this was actually my first attempt at colouring this paper.  So even though its not perfect, Im still pretty happy with the result. After colouring with them at the show over the past couple of days, I am starting to feel a little more competent, and I think my colouring is getting a little better. But even with my beginner skills, the colours are so vibrant and look amazing.

I've included a list below to show the colours I have used.  (And included a link to the entire collection if you are wanting to purchase them all!)  You can purchase the markers individually ($7.75 each) or in a pack of Light and Dark of the same colour ($15.50 per combo pack) or you can purchase ALL of the markers in all their glory (full set of 26 colours plus the 2 Skin tones and a colour lifter) for $209.25.  For me Whisper White is my favourite cardstock base to use (personally I prefer the  original Whisper White rather than the thick cardstock, but they are both awesome).  I am still experimenting with other cardstocks as well.

For the card above however I really enjoyed colouring on the "Just add Color" DSP... it is fabulous to colour on and you will see me using several of the lovely designs in future posts.  Today I am featuring the leaves.  Aren't they lovely?!

To order your blends (or anything else your Stamping heart desires!) visit my Online Store

If you are around tomorrow, come see us at the Penrith Paper Crafts Show and visit our Stampin'Up stand. I am doing a live presentation of the beautiful Diorama cards at 11am, and will be demonstrating these beautiful Blends markers at various points during the day.  Tomorrow will be the last day of the show!

And of course I have my Blends technique classes next week if you would like to attend my classes here on the Central Coast.  For details click HERE.  At time of writing I have 2 spots left!

Enjoy today's card and stay tuned for more!
