Good morning! I hope you are ready for the weekend…I sure am!
We have a bunch going to today to chat about but before we do – push back that chair and get ready to do what we do when there is blog candy winner time…..get those hands up and shake it…shake it some more and if you are Katie (below) than you need to squeal so loud that we all can hear you! WOOT-WOOT you won!
I loved, loved, LOVED reading your comments about the blends and I am thrilled that so many are excited about them coming aboard the Stampin’ Up! Train of fabulous products. As soon as I know the availability date you will know….
One thing that I want to emphasis about these or any alcohol markers is…You do not need to know one thing about shading to enjoy the beauty of what this marker will bring to your projects.
Trust me on this one…They simply GLIDE over your paper and absorbed into the paper leaving no lines of where you stop and started.This is why alcohol-based markers are great medium for coloring with fabulous results.
The way I would rather you look at it is…If you choose to use two to blend together…That’s great but you do not need to use two colors together when coloring an image it.
Think of it this way…You have two completely different colors. Stamping Up Blends have a palette of 12 (as of now) but because we have 2 of each color (a light and a dark) you actually have 24 completely different colors.
We ALL seem to agree….we ADORE the fact that the Blends MATCH our beautiful colors…that is why HANDS DOWN I knew that when Stampin’ Up! brought these back….I was IN FOR SURE…..(even though I am a COPIC gal too) because of the “matching factor” – I LOVE that these MATCH our fabulous colors.
Whew….that’s over – now here is something that you all will love…..FREE SHIPPING! For me – anytime I see FREE SHIPPING, you can count me in. Being totally honest, it PAINS me more thank you will ever know to pay so much for shipping…..SO –
My wonderful peep (James) Birthday is Sunday the 15th and mine is Tuesday the 17th so it is a “happy” time for me….so what better way so share the “happy” than to pass it on to YOU!
SO….as the header picture says…..Sunday – Tuesday I will give you FREE SHIPPING when you place an order from me on my online store with any purchases over 75+.
How does it work? – after you place the order I will see it….and when I send you the gift with purchase for the month (Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad) I will send you a check for the amount that your shipping was. (I offer this randomly and I know than many of you love it) so…here you go – 3 days for you to look and see what you need.
Here is the Hostess Code for this month – N7K7RR46 (you will always see the current one on the side of my blog)
Why not go together with a friend if you cannot meet the $75 limit yourself (I don’t think that will be a problem if you are anything like me)…have FUN and a great way to stock up on staples.
HOW ABOUT MORE BLOG CANDY???
Let’s keep chatting about these new markers……leave a comment and give some feedback….here is the question …..When these markers come out….will you “pick and choose certain color families” or will you buy the whole set……
I can’t wait to hear your preference….for me – HANDS DOWN…..I had to get the whole darn deal! Remember, tomorrow (the 15th) is the last day that you can get “the ultimate bundle” of them as Stampin’ Up! only has them available as of now to demonstrators….
For $99 you will get ALL OF these Stampin’ Blends (a $121.50 value) – ships for free…..plus I will send you the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad…and you will be good to go to color away!
Monday, I will pop on and let you know the WINNER of this blog candy….another set of the cards…..someone will win (4) cards and the ink pad …..
Where am I today? I am with 4 AMAZING GALS…my Stampin’ Buddies…..Jeanie, Rosanne, Deb and Ramsey as we are staying at Ramsey’s in Annapolis, MD and stampin’…chattin’ ….laughin’…..a perfect and special time…..gotta run -we are doing our own show box swap!
