Want to win an early Christmas gift? Stampin’ Up! has new alcohol markers that will be available to you November 1. Stampin’ Blends are so easy to use; Stampin’ Up! demonstrators were able to pre-order them early this month, so, of course, I have a complete set. And I’ve been using them a lot.

Here are a few of the features –

  • Add just the right amount of color where you need it with the brush tip or fine-point.
  • Each color (except Ivory and Bronze) has a light and dark shade marker, available individually or in a combo pack.
  • Press fit seal prevents air from entering the barrel and causing evaporation.
  • The nestable lids are easy to keep track of and have a tight fit for long-lasting color.

There’s also a color lifter, so you can add highlights. You’re going to love these markers, I know. There’s also a card kit (while supplies last) and a coordinating stamp set that is perfect for using with the Blends.

So back to the gift. Leave a comment on, share, or like the post about the Stampin’ Blends Giveaway on the Stampin’ Up! Facebook Page from now through 11:59:59 MT October 31 (just think “midnight Eastern” so you don’t miss it). A grand prize winner will receive all the markers, and 100 lucky winners will receive a combo pack.

Here’s a card I made for a friend’s birthday. It’s a CASE, and I forgot to write down the demo’s name. It was from a facebook group, and there’s no way I can find it without spending hours on facebook. I’m so sorry I can’t give credit. (If it’s yours, please leave a comment and I’ll credit you right away!) The only thing I really changed was the wine glass. I switched from red to white, because my friend likes white wine. Ok – I don’t think she really cares, but I prefer white.

Half Full, Stampin' Up!, Stampin' BlendsDon’t you love how the colors just pop? I used Cherry Cobbler and Rich Razzleberry for the red wine and the grapes, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive for the white, and Crumb Cake for the labels, and a little Smoky Slate for the glass and shadows. The sentiment label coordinates with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, but I didn’t want the ribbon hole, so I fussy cut it. Actually, I fussy cut all the elements – the bottles, glass, and tag. I know I’m in the minority here, but I find cutting and coloring relaxing. I don’t force that on my classes, though, because I know most of the attendees do not feel the same way.

So go enter the giveaway right now! What’s that? You don’t want to wait until November; you want the Blends right now? Join my team of amazing Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, and you can add the Blends to your starter kit.

Don’t forget the awesome promotions this month – the Buy Three, Get One Designer Series Paper sale and the Merry Patterns promotion.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
