Blendabilities and Sneak Peeks

Yesterday I took a few minutes to open up the new Blendabilities I got from Stampin' UP!   These are alcohol markers, similar to Copic, made in SU colors.  I've been very excited to try them.   For now they are only available in a limited amount of colors to demonstrators only.  (perks of the job)  SU just posted an expected release date of July  1st for the first 7 sets of colors!

Coming July 1, 2014

I'll be filming a video soon to give you the scoop, but wanted to play a bit first.  ;)  You can probably see that I used some retired sets.  That is because at the time I played with them my order from the new catalog had not arrived.  It is now in the house and I can hardly wait to get my new stamps inky.

The new challenge went up today at StampNation. It's a sketch challenge, and a very good one at that.  I'm going to be using this sketch on a few cards next month.  It's a great one for large focal points or sentiments.  I decided to give my new Blackberry Bliss color and Work of Art stamp set some love.  Aren't the gradient colors of Blackberry Bliss yummy?

Here's a peek at what the rest of the design team came up with.  What will you do with the new sketch?

Before I go I wanted to let you know what the weekly deals are for this week.  I'm seriously debating on finally getting the envelope liners.  If you've tried them, let me know what you think.

I tried the envie liners at a recent SU workshop and I have to say I love the finished look they give to the envie! Plus it would be a great way to use up DSP scraps:). I also tried the rich razzleberry and old olive alcohol marker sets and will be sharing a card soon on my blog!
