12 Blendabilties Techniques

If you're like many of my customers, you've been curious about alcohol markers but hesitant to try them because of the expense and complicated color systems.  Stampin' Up! has created a simple and affordable alternative in the newly released Stampin' Blendabilities alcohol markers.

Alcohol markers are popular for their vibrant colors and the ability to blend and shade without the streaking you can get with traditional markers. Other brands offer quality and variety, but can be frustrating to use and too costly for paper crafters. Stampin' Blendabilities come in sets of 3 pre-coordinated (light, medium, and dark) shades of the same color instead of a complicated system that takes time to learn. The colors coordinate with all our products, making it easy for you to coordinate with cardstock, designer paper, and embellishments.

In this 21-page Blendabilities techniques tutorial I will share with you a dozen different techniques for alcohol markers, including techniques such as Faux Glass Flower, Coloring Metal, Highlighting with the Color Lifter, and Coloring Glitter.

To get started with Stampin' Blendabilities alcohol markers you'll only need a few items:

  • A set of Stampin' Blendabilities (or more than one set if you want more colors).
  • Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad that is designed so it doesn't smear when colored with alcohol markers.
  • A line art stamp set to stamp and color. There are quite a few shown on pages 166-173 of the 2014-2015 Annual Catalog, plus many more throughout the catalog.
  • A package of Whisper White card stock (#124302), Whisper White Cut & Ready Card Bases (#135804), or Note Cards (#131527)
  • Optional – The Color Lifter is a fun, addition.  It pushes color to move it (not erase it) so you can create highlights on colored images and even repair a bit of “coloring outside the lines”

I'm excited to share the vibrant colors and techniques of Stampin' Blendabilities with you!

Tip: Lay the marker and lid on a table and slide together to close the lids tightly to prevent the alcohol from evaporating quickly.
