More Stampin'Blend Fun

 I found a way to have More Stampin'Blend Fun! Check out this cute ornament. Ornament after
...it's ceramic--it's slick and shiny. (Note: you can purchase this type of ornament from your local craft store). One of those that you normally could not color with the standard Stampin'Write markers. But you CAN use our new Stampin'Blend alcohol markers! It is quick and easy too! You can see a bit more detail here: Ornament detail

Here's what it looked like "before" Ornament before
---pretty but adding that bit of color around the border really makes it special and makes the stamped image really pop! I stamped the holly (Holly Berry Happiness) in Memento ink...this is  a waterbased ink which you need to use when using alcohol markers...on Shimmery White cardstock.  I used the Old Olive Blend Combo to color the leaves. Then stamped the bow on Real Red cardstock and punched out with the Holly Builder punch (Item #141843). I punched this out with the 2" circle punch and layered it on a punched circle of red glimmer (Sparkle punch). All these layers are adhered with glue dots.  Isn't that fun!

If you'd like to build your Blend stash you can join the Blend Club--you'll have all 12 colors by the end of January  in easy payments and you are eligible to attend the Blend Class February 4th (class fee $30 includes the Ivory & Bronze Skin tones and the color lifter). My free gift to you is the Memento Ink pad or the Memento refill--you choose and you can receive the gift now. Live out of town--you can get the Class To Go!

I picked a design that allowed lots of coloring and I'm finding these markers are easy and quick to use--they blend really well.

We have 12 colors (light & dark shades)--you can purchase the combo or you can purchase them individually--this means if you need to replace only of of the combo--you don't have to purchase the whole set! You can purchase all 12 combos, the bronze and ivory skin tones and the color lifter as a collection.

Stampin'Up! Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers

I'm so excited about the new Stampin'Up! Stampin' Blends  Alcohol Markers! They are totally fun and super easy. We have 2 shades of each of the 12 color sets! This makes blending so easy...my only caution is to go easy on the dark shade to give yourself plenty of room to blend. And, more good news---you can purchase them as a pair or singly! That means if you use up one of the shades--you don't have to purchase the whole set--just replace the one you need!

Here's my first creation: 10-20-17 Acorms

That was very easy & I could just color with them all day. I use the darker shade first--then blend with the lighter shade. You can do the reverse---whichever feels more comfortable to you is fine! There are no hard fast rules.  If you want to place a highlight (like light shining on an image) just pull off some color with the color lifter --this can also be used if you go outside the lines in coloring--I did go out a bit on the green leaves but was able to "push the color back into the leaf" with the lifter.

You'll be able to order these November 1st--I'm taking orders now & will be placing the first order 11/1...just email me (sandihartka@sandilovesstamping.com) or call 410 836 8016. I'll order yours! Here's the entire list of products  Download StampinBlends_2017_US (1) 11-1-17

These will make terrific Christmas or birthday gifts for your crafting family and friends! Order early to avoid any supply delays--these are going to be a great hit!

The rest of the supplies for creating this card are below...you can click on Shop Now button or on one of the images below and go directly into my store to place your order.  Remember to use the Host code for October (CRD7YQPG) & you'll receive $5 in product from the Holiday Mini catalog from me for each $50 in product that you purchase.


1. Cut Crumb Cake cardstock 4 1/4 X 11, score on the long side at 5 1/2. (cardbase)

2. Cut acorn print (Painted Autumn) Designer Series Paper 2 X 4 1/4; adhere to card front with multipurpose liquid glue.

3. Using Decorative Ribbon punch, punch a 4 1/4"  ribbon border from Early Espresso cardstock; adhere at top of the DSP with liquid glue

4. Punch Stitched Circle (Stitched Shapes framelits) from Thick Vanilla cardstock; stamp acorn image (Count My Blessings stamp set) in Memento ink (this is important!). Note: lay the cardstock on an absorbent material (e.g. paper towel) so it doesn't bleed through on good cardstock.
