It's here, it's here! I'm so excited to finally be able to introduce our new Stampin' Blends premier alcohol markers!
If you have never used alcohol markers before, your first question might be, "Why do I want them?" What makes alcohol markers so special is how shades of colors can be blended together, creating shadowed and highlighted areas to the stamped image in one smooth blend. Even if you just use a single color, the color left on the paper will be seamless...you won't be able to see lines in the colored image like you would if using regular markers. Also, using alcohol markers will reduce or eliminate those frustrating tears or "pilling" that happens sometimes when using regular die markers or watercolor pencils.
One thing I especially love about our markers is that each set has only two colors...for me, it's so much easier to know what color to use where...if it's shadow, I use the dark color...if it's light, I use the light color...and a little bit of the Color Lifter will highlight perfectly! You'll feel like an artist in no time once you get the hang of these easy-to-use markers!
I hope you're now asking, "How do I get the November Online Class?" It's easy!
In addition to the FREE Color Lifter and all the paper products you need for your cards, you will receive a PDF file via e-mail with complete, easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions to stamp, color and assemble your cards. I've put a lot of detail into these instructions so you'll feel confident using your new Stampin' Blends and you'll be a pro by the time you've finished your projects!
Although you do not need to add these items to your purchase to receive the November Online Class, you may wish to add Whisper White and/or Very Vanilla Thick cardstock to your order as well as the Tuxedo Black Memento pad, if you do not yet have them in your stampin' stash. You will also need SNAIL adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals, a black marker, a ruler and scissors to complete your projects as I've designed them.

If you have any questions when placing your order, please contact me....I'm here to helpl! IMPORTANT: Please DO NOT select "No Contact" when placing your order...if you do, I will not have your contact information to be able to send your class projects and free gift.
One final thing...if you've been around Stampin' Up! products for awhile, I do want to address the issue we had several years ago with a previous offering of alcohol markers. Stampin' Up! was not satisfied with the quality of those markers and pulled them from our market. The issue was that some of the pens did not properly seal which allowed the alcohol to evaporate. Many tests have been run on our new offering of alcohol markers and these issues have all been resolved to Stampin' Up!'s high standards, so you can be confident you are getting the best quality product!
I hope you'll place your order today because I know you're going to LOVE your new Stampin' Blends markers!
Until next time...happy stampin'!
