Greetings! Darcy here from Dj's Stampin' Place with a question for you. Have you tried out the new Blendabilities Markers from Stampin' Up! yet? If not, you need to; I'm addicted!
many times have you been working on a project and thought, "oh man, I
wish I had this ribbon in ______ (insert color here)?" Well with
Blendabilities, now you can! (At least in the 6 colors plus skin tones
that are currently available.)
Today I wanted to
showcase just a few items that you can enhance/change with these
fabulous markers. In case you're not aware, the Blendabilites come in a
pack of 3 gradient colors for $11.95. Hence the ability to blend them. I
used the Darker Coastal Cabana on all of my test samples today so you
can see how different mediums present a slightly different result.
didn't label the Basic Pearl and Basic Rhinestone in the middle because
I ran out of room. Remember, you can click on the picture for a larger
do you think? I can't tell you how gorgeous it all is in person,
especially the Satin Ribbon and Basic Pearl. I once tried the technique
of coloring our pearls with a Sharpie and then heat embossing to set it.
Let me tell you that was a mess and I never tried it again. The
blendabilities was not messy and dried quickly!!!
Now for some paper samples.
that make a huge difference on the Back to Black DSP? I moved the
Watercolor Paper in the second picture because I wanted to show the
butterflies side by side. The same color marker looks slightly darker on
the Watercolor Paper than on the Whisper White cardstock.
Ok, so there's one last thing I used my Blendabilities on today. I didn't use the Coastal Cabana though, and you'll see why.
very first day I wore these shoes, I scuffed them on the sidewalk
leaving for lunch. I was highly upset. But I figured out a way to make
my little scuff less noticeable.
got it! I grabbed the Blush Blendabilities Marker from the Skin Tone
collection and colored my shoe! Oh, and if you look at my scrap paper
under my shoe...make sure that you use scrap paper under your ribbons
when you are coloring them!
Thanks for stopping by today! I've enjoyed sharing my ideas with you. I'll be featuring several projects on my blog in the next two weeks that use the Blendabilities in one way or another (did I mention I'm addicted?). I'd love to have you stop over there to check them out!
