I am so excited to share with you Stampin’ Up!’s new Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.  As a demonstrator we are allowed to get products prior to them being available to our customers. I just received my order yesterday and I had to play with them.  I had heard wonderful things from other demonstrators who had gotten them earlier.  I have only used the Copic Markers a few times, but at least to me, these are very similar.  I was in love from the first stroke.

Color Me Happy Kit: 144609, Color Me Happy stamp set: 144069


I used the Color Me Happy Project Kit along with the Color Me Happy Stamp Set.  And I even followed the directions from the kit!  I hate that you can look closely at my birds, but that is what this is all about, right?  The pink bird was my first play with the markers.  And yes, I realize I should have practiced ahead of time before going right to  my project!!  But the pool party bird is much better.  The difference is that I colored with the dark around the edges and then came in immediately with the light to blend it.  That works so much better.

Everything you see on my card is included in the kit.  Although the stamp set is sold separately.  The envelopes, which you can see part of it in the photo, are just beautiful.

Stampin’ Up! spent years perfecting these markers to make sure they were going to last.  They would not make the same mistake twice.  I think they have a winner.  Also, these markers are sold individually.  And there are only two of a color, a light and a dark.

The Stampin’ Blends will be available for you to order before much longer.  I hope you will give them a try.  In the meantime I will continue to play with them and hopefully continue to improve my coloring skills!

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I hope you have enjoyed this sneek peak at the Stampin’ Blends.  Here is a video that you can watch as well.  Click HERE
