Happy Watercolour - and something new coming from Stampin'Up!

Coastal Cabana, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake
Here are couple of cards using the new Happy Watercolour stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue.
This set was on my wish list from the beginning, but I was a bit hesitant with it so I didn't include it in my preorder in December. Then I just had so many regrets that I had to order it - got it this past Friday and these are the 2 cards I have done with them so far.

I like how with this set you don't have to colour the flower, you just stamp that smuched watercolour image at the back!






Crushed Curry, Pool Party, Smoky Slate
The Second card has a vellum background and you know what happens to vellum when you emboss it? It turns white! so it gives you additional colour and texture at the same time!

I also used the new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch on this card. I just love those new tag topper punches! What's so great is that you can make your tags as long as you want them. Unfortunately it does limit the width of the tag to 2", but that is generally wide enough for most usage!

And then the news about the new product coming this spring!!!!


Blendabilities – Alcohol based blending markers

These markers will come in sets of 3 – with different shades (light, medium, dark) of the same color that will blend together to allow you to create gorgeously smooth colored images. The US price for the set of 3 is $11.95 (so the canadian will be a bit higher), and since they are not refillable (at this time), they are priced lower than other alcohol markers (like Copic)

There is also a Skin Tone Assortment set of six Blendabilities for $22.95 (US). Other new products will include a Memento Ink Pad, which you need to use with these alcohol markers, for $5.95 (US) and a refill for $4.95 (US). There is also a Blendabilities Color Lifter - a "magic eraser" - for $4.95 (US).

 

If you like Copic markers but don’t like the price, you will love these. Alcohol markers that blend beautifully and even a marker that removes color if you make a mistake. The chart shows the 12 color groups that will come in sets of 3. They will not replace our regular markers – the alcohol markers dry too fast to use on your stamps or to use aquapainters with. Think of these as another color tool to add to your tool box. They are square and won’t roll off your table, bullet tip on one end, brush tip on the other. They recommend using the Memento Tuxedo Black pad and NOT using StazOn, which is an alcohol based pad.
