I wasn’t feeling creative today with a heavy schedule and to do list but I picked up a few of new markers and just started coloring.  And it felt good.  I felt creative and I think anyone can feel that way with these!

Coloring an image can be fun and yet sometimes frustrating!  We want to have that multi-dimensional, blended effect but regular markers leave lines and edges.  Stampin’ Up has added a new line of alcohol markers called Stampin’ Blends and they are officially available today!

See the 26 colors available now (more coming!) and a bundle deal flyer HERE

You can get one marker, or 2 markers or a bundle!  I love that individual markers are available since I tend to use a lot of the light Pool Party, for example.  Because they are not refillable but very reasonably priced at 4.50 a piece, I can just get just one if I need it.  If you do order the whole bundle now, they will come individually wrapped for freshness rather than in a box.

  • Two tips! Brush tip or fine-point bullet tip
  • Each color (except Ivory and Bronze) has a light and dark shade marker, available individually or in a combo 2-pack
  • Stampin’ Up has done in-house testing for evaporation and longevity and are really happy with the results
  • Press fit seal lids prevents air from entering the barrel and causing evaporation. They are also nest-able to stack while you are coloring.


If you have been a demonstrator before or would like to try it out for the hobby discount or business, you can get the whole blends bundle in your starter kit and save a bunch!  In the starter kit, you can choose the bundle for $121.50 and pay only $99 plus tax and free shipping!   That’s a savings of around $34 on the bundle if you want to join SU in November with me.  The whole collection item number is #147475.

If you are new to alcohol markers, the Stampin’ Up Home office created 4 videos to watch:
