Blendabilities - One of my new favorites!

I recently got adopted by a local group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators in my area as my upline lives over a thousand miles away.  Last night we tried our hand at Blendabilities.  To be honest I bought them awhile ago and they just sat on my shelf.  My excuse is that we moved, but really I was a little intimidated by them.  Boy, was I ever wrong!  They are super easy to use.  I used the cherry cobbler that has a light, medium, and dark marker.  They are alcohol based so they are amazing do coloring.  This would be a simple way to start card making using minimal supplies.  Besides paper and envelopes all you need is a marker set, color lifter, ink pad, and this stamp for just $35 plus shipping & handling.  They are now available in 12 colors and a skin tone larger set.  If you are interested email me or you can order directly from me via the link of the right side of this blog.

This is all 3 ways to color dark to light, all one color, and light to dark.

Colored this dark to light.

Colored using just one color.

Colored this light to dark.

My favorite one with the markers.

Recent projects....

I've fallen back in love with spending time with Stampin' Up products over this winter as it has provided a nice creative outlet while we have had a harsh Great Lakes winter.  Please let me know what you think.
