Stampin' Blends markers are coming - colour me happy!

Have you heard the exciting news yet? Our new Stampin' Blends™ range of alcohol markers will be available for everyone to order on November 1st - just 10 days away. Yippee! I'm so excited.

Demonstrators were able to order Blends earlier this month (yes we're spoiled), so of course I had to get them all. So pretty! I've been having so much fun playing over the past week to get to know them better & am really loving creating with them. I think you'll love them too.

The Colours

There are 12 Stampin' Up!® exclusive colours in the range so far, each with a light and dark marker. To my eye, the dark marker is usually 'the' SU colour & the light marker is a lighter blendable shade. 
Each colour will be available as a single marker or in a two marker combo pack. Two additional single marker colours will be available (ivory & bronze) plus a clear Color Lifter.
You can also buy the lot together! (Happy Christmas anyone?)

I've made this quick sampler to show all the colours. As well as being good colouring practice, my colour loving self just wants to look at how pretty they are.This was a first attempt so don't look too closely at my blending. Huge thanks to fellow demonstrator Shannon Jaramillo for sharing this fabulous idea.

JAI 382 colour challenge - Bethlehem Christmas


Friday means a new Just Add Ink challenge & this week Patrice has given us this elegant colour combination of fresh fig, smoky slate, black & white to work with.

I chose to make a Christmas card using my newest purchases, the Night in Bethlehem stamp & die bundle, and the Marbled background stamp.

Christmas Quilt card trio

Lots of pics ahead! Today I'm sharing three cards using the Christmas Quilt stamp & die bundle, this time teamed with the Quilted Christmas paper stack. These make a great combination for quick, easy Christmas cards. First up is this one we made at my September Christmas class.

Seasonal leaves for World Card Making Day

Happy World Card Making Day! I hope you're getting some crafty time today or over the weekend. Today I'm sharing a couple of leafy cards using the Colorful Seasons stamp & die bundle.

 By happy coincidence, the layout is very similar to yesterday's sketch challenge card, but with natural, Autumn (Fall) feel, thanks to the paper colours & gorgeous leaves. And how fabulous is the sentiment? I love that it can apply to lots of different occasions, birthdays, engagements, weddings, anniversaries, babies etc.

Both the Wood Textures & Color Theory paper stacks I've used are part of our buy 3, get a 4th pack free October offer. The Colorful Seasons stamp set is 15% off until October 10th, as part of our World Card Making Day Deals too. See all the deals here.
