Colouring on Kraft | Stampin' Up Artisan Design Team Hop


Hi all! Welcome to November!!

Today is the day that Stampin' Up! has released Stampin' Blends!! Stampin’ Up!’s new premier alcohol markers, Stampin’ Blends are high-quality, dual-tip markers that come in 12 of Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive colors, each with a light and dark shade. Maybe you don’t think of yourself as an artist, but you don’t need to be because these markers make it super easy to blend colors and create gorgeous works of art!




For today's project, I wanted to see how the markers did on kraft paper using the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set. While it isn't perfect, it was fun to play with. In fact, I'd suggest using a primer before you colour. Regardless, in this project I did not use anything special. To create the boughs and ribbon, I used a combination of Pink Piroutte, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive



To add some dimension I created some shadows with Pink Pirouette on the outside of the stamped image.  In addition, I used my Stampin' White Chalk Marker to create those tiny dots!

I hope this encourages you to try your alcohol markers on different colours of paper.

Thanks for hanging out with us today.  We know that your time is valuable so thank you for making us part of your day.  Let's see what Dani has made using the Stampin' Blends!

  2. I love your card. I wouldn't have thought to try the markers on anything other than whisper white - I will try it now I've seen the fabulous results on your card.
