Blueberry Bushel goodies!  Home to Roost can be earned FREE with a $50 product order (total before shipping and tax) during Sale-A-Bration (Jan. 3 – March 31).  Learn more about Sale-A-Bration here.

Falling in Love with Stampin’ Blends Markers

Create a simple card using Stampin' Up! Colorful Season & Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies - Mary Fish StampinUp Idea

This weekend I got a chance to practice and play with the Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers (available to customers Nov. 1, 2017).  For today’s fall card, I used Rich Razzleberry and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends (each color has two shades) to add rich layers of color to the Crumb Cake leaves.  

I’ll share an easy coloring technique for using the Stampin’ Blends with a 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial tomorrow!

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.


STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • The sentiments and images from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set are lovely and offer year round versatility.  The leaves were cropped with the coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  Save 10% when you purchase the stamp set and dies as a bundle!

  • Stampin’ Blends Must-Have!  Tuxedo Black Memento Ink is designed to work with the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.  To keep the image crisp, give the stamped images a minute or two to dry before adding the saturated color of the markers.

  • A stamp from Touches of Texture Stamp Set adds soft, distressed texture and balance.
