ESAD Blog Hop November - Blends!

Hi Crafters!  

Today I'm hopping with the Extra Special Australian Demonstrators (ESAD) Group & have we got a party for you! We are all showcasing the beautiful new Blends! I am just in love with these alcohol markers cos they don't leave any streaks & I'm not incredibly talented in the colouring department, so I need all the help I can get haha! But the Blends even make me look like I can colour, they are incredible! 

I have had  a play around with the Color Me Happy Bundle & I'm pretty sure this card kit was made just for me! It's all my fave colours & sooooo beautiful! I love this bundle so much, that I am giving away not one, but TWO Color Me Happy Bundles this month! One for my Monthly Customer Draw & one for my Monthly Team Draw! Woop! 

I've made up four of the same card, but with a slightly different look on each one & aren't they all delightful? So easy to put together as well, the card kit comes with all these pre die cut pieces that just pop out of the paper & are ready to use!

I'll just go through the colours of Blends that I've used. You get a light & a dark of each of 12 colours in the Bundle. You can also purchase the Blends as separates or as duo's with the light & darks. This first one is Dark Pool Party & Dark Night of Navy. Most of the colours are pretty true, but Night of Navy is a little lighter than the ink pad.

The second card is Light & Dark Night of Navy.

The third card is Light & Dark Pool Party.

And finally, a blended mix! This card uses (in this order) Light & Dark Pool Party, Light & Dark Bermuda Bay & then Dark Night of Navy for the shadow. So you can see the Blends are beautiful on their own but they really do 'blend' very easily, hence the name! If I can do it, then so can you! These pens really are a delight to use! And I've added a little Gold Metallic Thread, because really, what's a card without metallic thread? hehe! xx

I hope you have enjoyed my cards! Please hop around the rest of the group & have a look at all of the amazing projects! Next up, we have the lovely Kristel Rimmer!

Some tips for using your Blends: 
  • Opposites attract! Stampin' Blends are alcohol markers, so you need to use a water based ink. Tuxedo Black Momento ink is perfect for this. 
    • Archival Black ink is alcohol based, so it will blend/bleed if you use it with your Stampin' Blends. Archival Black is better suited to using with our water based Classic Stampin' Pads & Stampin' Write Markers.
  • Stampin' Blends work perfectly for all your alcohol ink techniques with Glossy Paper. 
  • For a matte finish, use Thick Whisper White cardstock. The ink will show through on the other side, so to achieve the best look, adhere your piece with Dimensionals or layer it & use a piece of scrap or Grid Paper to cover your work surface
  • Have fun colouring in all those pretty stamp sets with outlined images, use the Just Add Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper or the specifically designed Color Me Happy Kit & Stamps.
