Blendabilities and Inks – Did You Know?

Did you know that Memento Ink isn’t the only ink you can use with Blendabilities Markers?  Stampin’ Up! has put together a list of 29 Classic Ink colors that won’t bleed when used with alcohol markers.  This is great news for cardmakers and paper crafters, because if you’re like me, you love having options!  Take a look at this example using the Bloom with Hope stamp set. The set is available only as Stampin’ Rewards or Hostess Benefits.  Contact me for more information about these rewards:  sage@stampingmadly.com.

Handmade Sympathy Card with Bloom with Hope and Blendabilities from Stamping Madly

The flower from Bloom with Hope was stamped in Lost Lagoon ink.  Then it was colored with a combination of Soft Sky, Coastal Cabana, and Crumb Cake Blendabilities.  Don’t you just love how the Lost Lagoon outline softens the entire look of the flower?  Just imagine it stamped with black – it would be a very different card!

If you haven’t tried Blendabilities yet, this is the perfect time to get your feet wet, or your fingers inky.  That’s because you can earn one of the 12 original color assortments during Sale-a-Bration for every $50 worth of Stampin’ Up! merchandise you order!  That’s an awesome deal!  When you place the order you’ll need to use the item numbers in the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  If you use the item numbers in the Annual Catalog or in the online store, you’ll get charged for them.   🙁

If you’re already a fan of Blendabilities you’ll be happy to know that the Spring Occasions Catalog has four new colors!  Wisteria Wonder, Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky, and Bermuda Bay.  Use this link to see all the colors:  Blendabilities from Stampin’ Up!

      Hi Mary, I know what you mean about getting the lids off of Blendabilities. I have some trouble with grip strength, too. The good news is that the tops on the colors I’ve worked with the most are coming off and on more easily as time goes on. You’re right, each to her own! If you have what you need with water color and markers, then that’s what’s best for you!

    I’m interested in how you adapted the scalloped tag punch to get a larger tag for layering..
