Stampin’ Blends are artist-quality alcohol markers in 12 exclusive Stampin’ Up! colours.


  • Add just the right amount of colour where you need it with the brush tip or fine-point.
  • Each colour (except Ivory and Bronze) has a light and dark shade marker, available individually or in a combo pack.
  • We have done in-house testing for evaporation and life testing and are really happy with the results, so you can feel confident sharing them with your customers.
  • Press fit seal prevents air from entering the barrel and causing evaporation.
  • The nestable lids are easy to keep track of and have a tight fit for long-lasting colour.

Here’s the Stampin’ Up! Video all about them

What’s the fuss?

  • Not only are they easy to use, they make you feel like a real artist!
  • Add just the right amount of colour where you need it with the brush tip or fine-point.
  • Each colour (except Ivory and Bronze) has a light and dark shade marker, available individually or in a combo pack.
  • If you love colouring or even if you are just wanting to get started with colouring, I’m sure you are going to love these markers as much as I do! (Don’t forget you’ll need to use Memento ink with the new markers).
  • They give stunning results.

Here’s the inside of my card for Stampin’ Blends Techniques 101. I left the inside of my card uncoloured so the recipient can colour it. The envelope is stamped using a flower from Birthday Blooms and coloured with Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends.

How to use them tips:

    • Put down a layer of colour using the brush tip and the lightest colour
    • Try not to colour right to the edge as you need to leave some light areas to give proper lighting effects and as they are alcohol markers, they may bleed a bit though your stamping
    • Go in with the darker of the shades and use the fine tip to create some shadows or darker areas
    • Then go back with the light and blend the dark and light together, so the line created when you added the dark, disappears
    • You can give a little extra layer of light on light
    • Now go back to the edge which you didn’t colour before, and add a layer of light. So now the rest of the flowers has 2 or 3 layers of colour and the very edge of the image only has 1 layer of colour
    • You can use the Bronze to just add a few dots of colour in the shadows and then use the light colour to come back and feather over the Bronze.
    • Use the Color Lifter to create more shades in your colouring and to blend

What can you colour with them?

  • Stampin’ Up! recommend Thick Whisper White Card
  • Colour images on envelopes (be careful you don’t add too much colour or it will bleed through the envelope)
  • Glossy Accents
  • Pearls
  • Rhinestones
  • Ribbon – 1 colour or make it Ombré using the light and dark and blending in the centre
  • Faceted Gems
  • Timber
  • Book covers
  • Black and white Designer Series Paper such as Just Add Color and Petal Passion
  • Images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp them
