Stampin’ Blends – Available Now!

Can you hear the buzz around crafting land???

Stampin’ Up! have been working tirelessly over the last couple of years to reformulate and bring back a range of alcohol markers!

I’m excited to share that starting today, you can now order Stampin’ Blends in 12 exclusive Stampin’ Up! colours plus 2 skin tone/neutrals (Bronze & Ivory).  This means they match all the favourite products you already own!!!

Watch the video below for more information on Stampin’ Blends.

One of the perks of being part of the Stampin’ Up! family is to be able to order products before they hit the online store.

We’ve been playing with these gorgeous markers during classes in October and the feedback is wonderful.  My team are saying how easy to use they are, how beautifully they glide on, how much they love the colours and have either bought the set or are planning on how what order they’ll build their supplies.

The markers are available in single colours, in colour set duos and as a set of 27 (12 colour families, plus two skin tone markers & the Colour Lifter).

There’s also a new stamp set (Colour Me Happy) and project kit available as part of the Blends launch.  Click here to see the flyer with all the details.


I bet you’re curious to see the results of our play time!

I’ve already shared a couple of projects with you.  You can see the lantern card I made for our team swap here.

And the Blends in action with the Home for Christmas stamp set by clicking here.

My newest card to share with you uses the Just Add Color DSP (which is like sheets of an adult colouring book!!!).

I’ve cut the card front into three strips, and only coloured the middle panel.

This is a much more manageable way to practice colouring (and is a cool spotlight effect).

For this card, we practiced mixing colours – the light & dark of the Old Olive set and the light & dark of the Crumb Cake set.

The Just Add Color DSP has 6 different designs!  That’s a lot of colouring practice!

If you’d like to order some Stampin’ Blends and start some colouring therapy, visit my online store for access to the full stock!

You might only start with a couple of colours, but I bet you’ll be back for more!  They are addictive!

Ready For Christmas with Stampin’ Blends

Stampin’ Blends are a new design alcohol marker available to purchase from 1st November 2017.  They are so easy to use – the colour just floats on!

We’ve been having fun using them at classes this month – paired with the Ready for Christmas bundle.

These outlined images are perfect for colouring!  And with a variety of stamps to create your own Christmas scene, the options are endless!

We used the staircase & tree stamp for this card….

As well as colouring the presents & staircase, the new Blends are fantastic for colouring pearls.

I’m still a beginner when it comes to alcohol markers, but these truly are a dream to use!

The second card uses the super cute Daschund puppy from the stamp set – cute but mischievous!

I wouldn’t be far from the truth if I told you I mostly bought this stamp set for the Daschund!!!

I love mixing & matching my Stampin’ Up! supplies.  For this card, we used the Petal Garden DSP – not intended for Christmas but a gorgeous background for this card.

Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop | Favourites

Paper Adventures - Blog Hop Header

Hey there!!  Thanks for joining our Paper Adventures team blog hop for October!

The theme for this hop is ‘favourites’.  I wanted the team to share some of their style and personality with you – so keep hopping to learn more about what makes stamping fun for them!

If you haven’t started here, then you may have hopped over from our guest designer – Angela Meiritz-Reid.  She is every bit as gorgeous in person as she is online and we are delighted she agreed to hop with us today.

Next up is the host with the most – Siobhan Fitzsimmons!  Click on ‘next’ at the end of the post to see her favourites!


Siobhan hosted us at her beautiful homestead in the Perth hills on Sunday.

We turned our regular team meeting into a whole day retreat.  It was a wonderful luxury to share craft time with an amazing group of ladies.

The creative part of the day was filled by shoebox swaps.  Every team member designed a project and brought everything they needed to complete the card – all in a small box.

The cards were beautiful, with a gorgeous variety.  You might see some of them tonight!

Here’s an action shot of the shoebox swaps.  Thanks to Siobhan for the excellent photography!
