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.

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.

More Christmas cards with foil


Today it's time for some silver foil snowflake doily fun. Like yesterday's gold foil card, it's a quick and easy design - we need these at Christmas especially for mass producing - but the foil & z fold makes it interesting too.

Quick & easy Christmas with foil snowflakes


My favourite Christmas cards are generally quick to make with lots of shine so today's card definitely made me happy. I made this with my SU team in August & my class lovelies & it proved to be a hit with them too.

JAI 378 Just add texture - leafy birthday U-bridge fold



Happy Friday! This week's new challenge at Just Add Ink is to Just Add Texture. A fun & easy challenge so I hope you'll play along with the team.


I've have quite the obsession with the U-bridge fold card recently but today's card is the first card on my blog so far. We made this one at my August masculine card class too. Love it when a card does double duty.

Star quilt frame for sweetest girl



Did you see the star quilt birthday card I made for the sweetest 1 year old? Today I'm sharing the project that inspired that card - a framed star quilt for the birthday girl. Stella means star so the star quilt square from the Christmas Quilt bundle was perfect.
