People often ask me what the difference is between Stampin' Write Markers and Stampin' Blends. The simple answer is that Stampin' Write Markers are water-based markers and Stampin' Blends are alcohol markers, but that doesn't really tell you what you want to know. So, today I'm comparing coloring with these two types of markers.
First, the Patterned Paper
All of my cards today, as well as all of the cards in the hop, use the new Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! This amazing paper is rainbow colored on one side and black and white patterns on the other. You are absolutely going to want to add this paper to your stash. Since it is a hostess reward, you can only get it by submitting a $150 order or hosting your own workshop, party, or personalized class. It comes with 4 pieces each of 12 different fabulous designs for a total of 48 pieces of 12" x 12" patterned paper! AMAZING!
All of these cards uses the Butterfly Brilliance stamp. For this first sample, I colored the butterflies with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers in Pool Party, Granny Apple Green, and Pale Papaya.
Stampin' Write Markers
Stampin' Write Markers are water-based markers. They are sold in multi-packs by color family. Unlike Blends, there is only one marker per color. Because they are water-based, they can be used to color directly on your stamps. You can also color over them with a little water and they will run a little.
