Blendabilities...Coming Soon Near You!

Stampin' Up! is excited to announce that one of our most exciting new products, Stampin' Blendabilities Markers, will be available to you on June 2nd!

UPDATE: Note that I should have worded that they will be in the new catalog on June 2nd and not available for ordering yet. I will let you know when the date is released.

What are Blendabilities? Exclusive alcohol-based marker sets, come in a 3-pack of light, medium and dark shades (of the same color ), and provide your projects a more saturated look with blended colors.

We recommend using Stampin' Up! Whisper White Cardstock with your Stampin' Up! Blendabilities, but any one of our cardstocks would work just as well. And since traditional alcohol markers require a bit of training and aren't as accessible, we've developed videos to ensure that Blendabilities are easy-to-use for everyone!

The Blendabilites come in 12 sets of 3 shades and will be selling for $11.95. The Skin Tone assortment is a set of 6 shades for $22.95.

In addition, the following Blendabilities products will also be available:
  • Memento Ink Pad  $5.95
  • Memento Ink Refill $4.95
  • Color Lifter $4.95
What Sets Them Apart: The Stampin' Up! rectangular barrel keeps your markers from rolling away! Flat storage helps to maintain the life of each marker. Each marker comes with a tip on each end: brush and fine. Marker tips are made of nylon, which is superior to polyester which can fray. Color coded caps. Stampin' Up! markers coordinate wonderfully with our cardstock, and can be used with transparent sheets.

Here is a sample of my coloring:

As you can see in the photo below, each color comes in 3 shades. This set is the Old Olive Assortment. I started out by high-lighting the darker areas of my flower first:

Then I added my 2nd color which is the medium shade:

And finally the lightest shade and I left some white space to aid in the high-lighting:

And finally I added the Daffodil Delight Assortment to the center of my flower:

Voila, completed flower!

Here is another that I completed:

Notice the shading on the bases and how they go from dark to light? These are fun to work with and with a little more practice I think I'll get the hang of it! I can't wait to order the other 6 color assortments on June 2nd!
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
