Sneak Peek: Stampin' Blendabilities

I rarely venture away from Stampin' Up! products.  I love the coordination and the ease of using Stampin' Up! and honestly, I don't have time to even really know what else is out there.  So when Stampin' Up! announced we were getting alcohol-based markers called Stampin' Blendabilities, I didn't really know what that meant.  I knew that there were alcohol markers out there on the market, but I didn't understand the appeal.  But I got my first six sets of these this week and I get it now.

Colors: Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Coastal Cabana.  Stamps: So Very Grateful.  Accessories: Stampin' Blendabilities.
Blendabilites make it so easy to get that shaded look that everyone really wants to achieve.  I've never been very good at water coloring and getting that effect, but it is so easy with these markers.  Each set includes three different shades of the same color making it very easy to color coordinate with our main color families. There will eventually be 13 different sets of these markers, including a set of six flesh tones!! Demonstrators were allowed to order the first seven sets with their preorders last week.

Unfortunately, Stampin' Up! also let us know that these will likely not be available to customers when the catalog goes live on June 2 due to manufacturing constraints (they are trying to avoid a back order situation).  Stay tuned and I will let you know when they will be available to everyone. 

I also wanted to point out this stamp set: So Very Grateful.  It is in the Occasions Catalog and it is not carrying over into the new catalog.  I love the flowers in this set.  A friend of mine said they reminded her of a cross stitch pattern.  They remind me of the needle point my grandmother used to do.  This set is available to order until June 1 so don't miss out on it.

I love your card. I have that set and being a demo my blendabilities are on their way I hope. I noticed a lot of flowers are good for coloring too.
