Have you ever wondered what’s the difference between Stampin Write and Stampin Blends markers? Exactly why does Stampin’ Up! have TWO kinds of markers?
I agree it can be a little confusing. But there are some REALLY good reasons for the two varieties. Let me tell you all about them in my Jo-TIPS video.
What’s the Difference Between Stampin Write and Stampin Blends Markers?
Colouring with Stampin’ Up!’s Markers
While you CAN colour stamped images with both types of markers, I like the results a lot better with one of them – the Stampin’ Blends.
But take a peek at a closeup view of the results with both of them and YOU decide.
Here’s what I find about colouring with the Stampin’ Writes:
- Difficult to achieve variation in colour
- Leaves colouring “lines”
Here’s what I like about colouring with the Stampin’ Blends markers:
- Easy to achieve seamless blending
- Variation in tone to achieve highlights
I also talked about some of the fun techniques you can do with the Stampin’ Write markers in the video. Wanna see some of them? Click on the image to find out more about each one.
