Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls Blog Hop! Now I know the title sounds like I have a new coffee blend but I’m really talking about the new Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers!
Oh my gosh .. if you love to colour you are going to love these new Alcohol Markers from Stampin’ Up! I have been colouring with them for a couple of weeks now and I really have to make myself stop and do other stamping!
Once you start colouring with them you’ll notice how nicely the inks flow onto the cardstock. Now I dont mean pour out as they dont do that and they arent wet but the ink just seems to flow onto the cardstock which makes blending so easy to do!
My card for you today uses the Just Add Colour Specialty Designer Series Paper (yes this is one of the packs in the Designer Series Paper Sale – Buy 3 and get the 4th free!)
This card has a bit of a funny story to it. See I struggle with insomnia. Sometimes it’s not too bad and other nights well I just have to get up and do something. There was one of those nights where I had to get up and I remembered I hadnt unpacked my Blends so I unpacked them and popped them on the shelf.
Then thought I should try them out. So I grabbed this piece of Just Add Colour paper and started on the Seahorses. I love Seahorses at the best of time but these just popped when I coloured them and no matter how much ink or how I blended the paper didnt pill – I was chuffed – so I kept colouring and then it suddenly became 4am! whoops!!
See how lovely they blend? Now if you’d like to see them in action you can watch my Stampin’ Blends Sneak Peek Facebook Live Video here.
Blend your Embellishments
You can even use your Stampin’ Blends to coordinate your rhinestones (or pearls) to your project ….
I coloured mine with the Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blend Marker and they work so well on the card. You could even say they ‘blend’ in!
Now I love these Blends so much I’m doing two classes!
First is at my place this Saturday 28th October. We will start at 2pm and class will go for approximately 2 hours. Please be sure to contact me to reserve your place!
Second class is an online class on my Stamp A Latte Creative Community group on Facebook. It will be on 7th November at 10.30am and you’ll need to register early for the free class so I can get your class Kit to you in time. You will need to order your Markers early in November to have them in time for class too!
