Stampin’ Blends is one of my very favorite tools Stampin’ UP! offers.
I often get questions like this:
“Why do I need Stampin’ Blends when I have Stampin Write Markers?”
“Are Stampin’ Blends better than Stampin’ Write Markers?”
“What is the difference between Stampin’ Blends & Stampin’ Write Markers?”
“What is the difference between Stampin’ Blends & Copic Markers?”
I have decided to do a month long series on Stampin’ Blends. By the end of June ALL of your questions regarding these markers will be answered and you will also learn a few tips and tricks on using them.
Stampin’ Blends are a very wise investment for anyone that enjoys coloring, but maybe doesn’t have the time or energy to learn advanced alcohol marker coloring. However I will have resources for you if you have a desire to learn advanced stuff.
Today I want to share a few pieces of info and I have a video that goes over all the stuff I’ve listed below. But in case you aren’t a video fan, you’ll have it all written out for you here.
TIPS & INFO:
+ Stampin’ Blends are alcohol based markers, which lend to blending for shading and creating beautiful colored projects
+ Stampin Write Markers are water based and do not color smooth or blend well but are fantastic for watercolor projects, coloring small areas a solid color and other fun techniques
+ Stampin’ Blends should only be used with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink or any of the color inks Stampin’ UP! offers for no line coloring
+ Stampin’ Write Markers need to be used with Staz On Ink, a pigment based ink that won’t bleed when coloring
+ Stampin’ Blends can be purchased in a pair, light and dark combo, or individually
+ Stampin’ Blends DO NOT have refills. When the marker runs dry you must purchase a replacement, this is why their price point is substantially lower than other markers on the market
+ Stampin’ Write Markers can be refilled using Stampin’ UP!’s ink refills
+ Stampin’ UP! has created fantastic storage options for the Stampin Blends (as seen in the photo on this page)
