Let the Color Fest Begin!

So many have you been asking me about the new SU Blendabilities.... so thought I'd spend a little time on that for you... in anticipation of the new catalog that is... available June 2nd!

What are Blendabilities? Exclusive alcohol-based marker sets, come in a 3-pack of light, medium and dark shades (of the same color ), and provide your projects a more saturated look with blended colors.

We recommend using Stampin' Up! Whisper White Cardstock with your Stampin' Up! Blendabilities, but any one of our cardstocks would work just as well. And since traditional alcohol markers require a bit of training and aren't as accessible, SU has developed videos to ensure that Blendabilities are easy-to-use for everyone!

The Blendabilites come in sets of 3 shades and will be selling for $11.95 per set.
Shades assortments: Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate, Wisteria Wonder

The Skin Tone assortment is a set of 6 shades for $22.95. Bronze, Mocha, Blush, Natural, Nude, Ivory

In addition, the following Blendabilities products will also be available:

  • Memento Ink Pad  $5.95
  • Memento Ink Refill $4.95
  • Color Lifter $4.95
What Sets Them Apart: The Stampin' Up! rectangular barrel keeps your markers from rolling away! Flat storage helps to maintain the life of each marker. Each marker comes with a tip on each end: brush and fine. Marker tips are made of nylon, which is superior to polyester which can fray. Color coded caps. Stampin' Up! markers coordinate wonderfully with our cardstock, and can be used with transparent sheets.

Here is a sample from Deb Henderson::

As you can see in the photo below, each color comes in 3 shades. This set is the Old Olive Assortment. She started out by high-lighting the darker areas of the flower first:

Then added the 2nd color which is the medium shade:

And finally the lightest shade, leaving some 
white space to aid in the high-lighting:

Lastly added the Daffodil Delight Assortment 
to the center of the flower:

Here is another sample completed:

Notice the shading on the bases and how they go from dark to light. 

These are fun to work with and the possibilities are endless
