Stampin' Up! is excited to announce that one of our most exciting new products, Stampin' Blendabilities Markers!
These 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! (COMING AFTER JUNE 1)
What Sets Them Apart:
Blendabilites are ALCOHOL MARKERS and this means the ink inside the marker is suspended in alcohol instead of water. The ink goes on so smoothly you won't end up with those streaky lines in your projects!
The intense vibrant color is colorfast so it won't fade, and they are not water soluable so they won't run or fade in water. But they are alcohol soluable so you will defininetly need the Momento Black Ink Pad to stamp your image before using the Blendabilities to color it in with.
I am going to continue to post more about these fabulous markers in future posts but I wanted to give you a heads up. They are available to order on June 1st from my Stampin Up Store Website.
My Favorite part about Blendabilities? They come in our EXCLUSIVE Stampin Up! Colors!

THE NEW CATALOGS ARE HERE!
Due to my step dad's doctor appointment I had to attend with him last week, we had to move the monthly card class to today.
And we made this project in less than 10 minutes!
After folding the card in half with my bone folder, I inked the Everything Eleanor background stamp in Baked Brown Sugar Ink, stamped off once on my grid paper then stamped the card front. Then I opened the card and stamped it again inside.
I went to the Big Shot using the Framelit and cut the "window" out.
It was fun to stamp 8, Petite Petals flowers and use the coordinating punch to punch them out. They really look pretty in this Baked Brown Sugar ink!
Then I used a foam pad and stylus to rub the centers of each flower so the petals whould shape up a bit and added the pearls to the centers.
The flowers are attached with a dimensional.
EASY , fast and fun! They loved it!
Here is the card with no background stamp- very plan and pretty but I liked the b/g stamp more- it just made it a bit more elegant

If you’re wondering about the tags—they were so fun to make . . . and easy! I mixed a little Mod Podge with Strawberry Slush ink, painted it on a Window Sheet, and let it dry. Then I stamped “Hi” (from the Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set) on the painted Window Sheet in Jet Black StazOn Ink. Finally, I punched out the sentiment using the Full Heart Punch.
I did a lot of experimenting with different colors. As you can see, the Mod Podge and ink mixture looks opaque before it dries.
For my final project, I made a gift enclosure using a 7-1/4" x 5" Window Sheet piece. I folded it to make a loose pouch and punched a hole in the top using a 1/2" Circle Punch. I tied it closed using Gold Sequin Trim and Strawberry Slush 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim. The tag was made using the same method described above.
Made any fun projects using Window Sheets? Let us know in the comment section below!
I am VERY excited about this!
