A mix of old and new (current stamps and sneak peek In Colors) – this Stampin Blends technique is one you’ll want to try TODAY if you haven’t used it already. Such an amazing look, and it’s so simple! The Ice Cream Swirl stamps are perfect for making the most of Stampin’ Blends (beautiful saturated alcohol markers). Learn how to put them to work for easy coloring that makes a great impression.

How to Use Stampin Blends Alcohol Markers: Color on Color

  1. Stamp image in Classic Stampin Pad (Pretty in Pink In Color Sneak Peek shown here)
  2. Use Stampin’ Blends LIGHT Pretty in Pink Marker to color all over
  3. Use Stampin’ Blends DARK Pretty in Pink Marker to add shadow lines along stamped lines
  4. Go back with LIGHT Marker to color at the intersection between light and dark to blend
  5. Repeat for each color
  6. BONUS Stampin’ Blends Marker Tip – use the Ivory Marker (from Ivory/Bronze combo) to go around the outer edge and add definition and depth to the image on Basic White cardstock

Here are the steps:

If you’re set on waiting until May 1 for the new products, rest assured that you can still add Ice Cream Swirl to your collection right now. You’ll also want to take advantage of up to 60% off retiring favorites – like the Stampin’ Blends Markers for the 2022-2024 In Colors: Sweet Sorbet, Orchid Oasis, Tahitian Tide, Starry Sky and Parakeet Party. This is a great time to pick up some new Blends colors to fill out your toolbox.

Curious about the layered images? Masking with the Ice Cream Swirl stamps is simple. Here are the steps to stamping with post-it notes. Use them to cover each image so that lines don’t cross over:
