Update 3/20/15- This just in! Due to manufacturing issues, Stampin’ Up has made the decision to pull the plug on the Blendabilities Markers. If you received defective markers, you MUST seek a refund by June 2015.
Here is the official announcement from Stampin Up:
BLENDABILITIES PRODUCT LINE HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED
Many of you may already be aware that we have experienced a quality issue with our Blendabilities product line, and we thank you for your patience as we’ve worked through this sensitive matter.
We’ve done everything possible to work with our manufacturer; unfortunately, with no solution in sight, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to discontinue this popular product line.
We have provided you with a Q & A in the hopes that this will answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Thank you for your support as we continue to look for products that will meet our customer’s needs and provide you with the quality that you have come to expect from Stampin’ Up!
Alcohol markers are all the rage in papercrafting- for coloring, creating layers/backgrounds, and for custom-tinting embellishments. Now you can get ones that coordinate with all of your favorite Stampin’ UP products with Blendabilities Markers!
These markers are two sided- that is, you get both a brush tip and a writing tip in the same barrel.
And you can get a nice variety of lines, too. The barrels are squared so that they don’t roll off your table. There is a photo illustration showing you which nib is which. The caps fit VERY tightly!
It’s always easier to show you, so I put together this video for you!
They come in a set of three- a light, medium and dark hue and they retail for $11.95 per set.
The sets are as follows:
- Calypso Coral
- Costal Cabana
- Cherry Cobbler
- Crumb Cake
- Daffodil Delight
- Melon Mambo
- Night of Navy
- Old Olive
- Pumpkin Pie
- Rich Razzleberry
- Smoky Slate
- Wisteria Wonder
There is also a Color Lifter (blending pen?) and I’m hoping to get one of those soon to try out and report back on.
I drew out a Tardis with the machine and then colored it in with the Blendabilities Markers:
I’m thinking about doing a full tutorial of that process- leave me a comment if it’s something you’d like to see!
So… considering that these are some of the most cost-effective alcohol markers on the market, I think they are pretty great. (Seriously, $4 a marker is a good deal for a dual nib AND a sizable barrel full of ink!)
I’d love to hear your thoughts- and if you have questions, leave them below!
